Amazing!!

Sambath is such a fantastic tour guide. His in depth knowledge of the countries history as well as his local knowledge of the villages makes for a really interesting tour.
You are totally off the beaten track and get to experience the amazing hospitality and friendliness of the real cambodian people. You learn how they make their living and get to sample some local treats. We loved our trip so much we booked another with Sambath tomorrow. I think this is a must do tour when in Battambang. We were very lucky it was kust us and him, and he is more than happy to share jokes and knowledge with you.
Amazing tour

We very much enjoyed our cycling tour in and around Battambang with Sambath (half day). He picked us up at our hotel and brought good bikes and helmets (safe cycling). We saw local life and visited several places where we could see how rice noodles are made, rice paper (with tasting of spring rolls), bamboo-rice, fish paste (interesting :-)). We were invited to slice our own bananas for drying en tasted dried mango, banana, etc. and even had a zip of rice wine with cobra. Our 3 teenagers as well as we really liked this tour and Sambath is the best 'host', who really cares and has a lot of interesting information!
Excellent bike tour in Battambang

We had an amazing time with our guide Sambath and his photografer.
Sambath was very friendly and quickly to answer our request to go on a bike tour. The bikes were in good condition and the tour was in flat terrain in a manageable pace.
We went to visit the locals making handcrafted products such as rice paper, fish sauce and pots etc. Sambath did a good job telling us about the different work and answering our questions. The locals were smiling and very kind and especially the kids wants to say hallo and are adorable. On our tour we tasted local snacks and tried to make banana chips, which was a funny experience. We took the tour because we wanted to get out of the city and see the Cambodian countryside and we were defiantly not disappointed. Sambath did very good to keep us from the main road and instead using the dirt back roads as high quality mountain bikes are intended for.
We will definitely recommend this tour to others and if we had more time in Battambang, we would book a new tour with Sambath.
A fun tour!
