This is an awesome way to see the countryside and get to meet local people and learn what they do! The bikes are also high quality, with good helmets. The tour itself is fantastic because you get to go into people’s homes and see how they make a living and sample their products. The tour guides are also awesome - super personable and just good people :) Would definitely do this again.

This cycling tour with George as my guide was an excellent experience! I was the only guest on this activity for the day so it felt like a private tour. The cycling was a manageable 37km (?) on flat, back roads. It is rough though so request for a seat cushion. There will be some interesting pit stops along the way as well as some rest stops to hydrate (it was very hot) and a lunch stop (delicious Cambodian cuisine!). I got to know George very well and I commend him for all the work he is doing with training young Cambodian future entrepreneurs and for his effort in making this a sustainable enterprise. The tour culminates on a boat tour of the floating village but as this was dry season, most of the water has receded to the river and the lake. Nevertheless, the boat ride on the river and the lake was also interesting. You can also catch the sunset on the lake. If you want an immersive, authentic, and healthy activity on your vacation, book this tour! Good luck George and may you achieve your plans for the future! Cheers!

Had my tour with San and it was a wonderful experience! He made sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole ride, I chose to do the full 32km. Overall I saw things that I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere and felt like San and the company really work with the locals on bringing tourism on a personal level. We had a stop at the market, a roadside market to get some sugarcane juice to fuel up for the ride, and got to eat lunch at a locals house. It truly felt like an intimate experience and got an understanding how local people live. Highly recommend going through the Siem Reaper team and it’s sister companies for your tours. Not only did I get an experience that is not the normal tourist activities, but by going through Seam Reaper you are advocating young Cambodian entrepreneurs who are passionate about building the economy from within and educating the future generations.

A nice experience that I think I would do again. Please keep in mind that you are cycling 37km (23 miles) throughout the day and the roads are unpaved and bumpy. Be prepared for that and I would recommend asking about a cushioned seat ahead of time and size of the bike if you are tall. Our guide George clearly has a passion for his country and community; it was lovely to stop at a local's home for lunch!

I'm satisfied taking this tour. You get to see things and places that are more authentic than what a typical tourist would see/do in Siem Reap. Highly recommended if you don't mind cycling a few hours (with breaks of course). I learned many new things about Cambodian life, spirituality, and had seen a great sunset at the end. I would recommend to wear long sleeve if your skin is prone to burning. I used sun blocking at it's all fine.

So unique so interesting and so well done! Really appreciated and recommend to every guest of Siem Riap. We would never see so much if we just rent a bike. Interesting stops, local stories and traditions. Answering to all our stupid questions! We really felt unique today. Guys prepared for us fruits for a snack, water, very tasty lunch at a Cambodian family. Sunset at floating village was fantastic!
