Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure
From
US $1,202
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many! The walks through food stalls, the cooking lessons, the impromptu stops of the bus to get more street food and going to a BBQ with locals at Siem Reap. Tips? Its a jam packed itinerary so if you need lots of downtime, it's probably not for you. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? It was really great. The only recommendation I'd have is to add in an Angkor beer tour in PP. (more)Lauren Supplee
