Description of Exciting family vacation in Cambodia
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We believe that travel is for everyone. This is a really core principle for us and we passionately believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. We take all ages and all levels of fitness and we do everything possible to ensure that our tours are accessible for everyone, irrespective of physical ability or cognitive conditions. In our experience, there is almost always a way of making a tour suitable for everyone. It’s conceivable that there may be some situations that we can’t accommodate but we haven’t come across them yet!
Everything that we do is tailor made so if we have guests with limited mobility, for example, we will tailor the programme to take this into account, and will suggest hotels which will suit. Just let us know what your requirements are and we can talk you through the options
In most of our destinations, it is not possible to arrange a special vehicle adapted for wheelchairs, but we are able to arrange a large vehicle which will have ample storage for a wheelchair. Some hotels have wheelchair access; these may be few and far between but we can suggest where these might be possible. Where there is no wheel chair access, but not too many steps, hotel staff are always happy to help with lifting the wheel chair.
Blind/ limited vision:
All of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited vision. Information in braille is almost never available but local support can be provided, for example ensuring that porters are available to carry luggage in airports / train stations / hotels so that the travel partner is free to assist the person with limited vision.
As stated above, all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited hearing.
We have experience in providing appropriate spaces for all travelers, whether this means hotels with access to outdoor space, ground floor rooms, quiet rooms and so on. As all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be also be on hand to provide necessary one on one assistance to a traveler with cognitive conditions as required.
About this Free from food:
If guests have serious dietary issues (or allergies) we will arrange translations into the relevant local language(s) to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served.
The staff who are responsible for running our tours will always be LGBT friendly. Many of the destinations in which we operate do not offer equal rights to the LGBT community, and outward displays of affection may be problematic. We will be able to give advice on this on a country by country basis.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetMany of our visitors like to take a boat trip on the Mekong to see the Irrawaddy dolphin up close. It is very important not to get too close to the dophins and we ensure that we only use boat captains that follow the correct procedures.
Cambodia has a wide range of small locally owned hotels that have been built and furnished using locally sourced materials. We use these wherever possible.
Some of our groups also visit a site called Sambor Prei Kuk. This is in an area where landmines have been a problem and our guides use the opportunity to educate visitors about the problems that landmines can cause. There is a landmine museum in Siem Reap that we encourage those with older children to visit and it provides an excellent insight into this environmental issue.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.
PeopleOur programmes in Cambodia are run together with a partner that is owned and run by local people and who share our belief in the importance of operating in a socially responsible way.
In Phnom Penh we always encourage families to visit one of the excellent restaurants that are run in conjunction with street children. These provide older street children with a way of earning a living through tourism whilst also providing visitors with information about some of the issues facing Cambodia.
We also provide the opportunity for our guests to visit other social projects if this is something that they are interested in. In particular there is an excellent museum in Siem Reap that gives details about the use of landmines in Cambodia, something which is a significant problem.
Most of our groups will use local guides throughout their visit. The guides are from the local area and will give an excellent insight into the way of life in Cambodia.
