Amazing tour, highly recommend

This tour was one of the most enjoyable experiences I had during my travels in Cambodia, across both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The stops we made were all really interesting, and allowed us a glimpse into the everyday life of normal Cambodians, which as tourists we normally don't get to see. We visited a three different farming families: 1) one who are subsistence farmers and are able to only grow enough food to feed and sustain their own families (with unfortunately not anything left over to sell), 2) a mushroom farming family, got to see how they farmed their mushrooms, and 3) a family that made rice wine (my favourite stop, we even got to sample some, including a really unique one infused with banana!) and also kept a lot of animals and pigs. We additionally stopped and toured a local Buddhist monastery. The last stop was at a local outdoor restaurant overlooking beautiful lotus fields, a perfect place to watch the sunset and enjoy a beer.

Our guide Chen was AMAZING, super knowledgeable and funny, himself having come from a farming family in the local area and having worked on the fields before. We learned so many anecdotes about the history, local life, and culture. Tour company was also very flexible and accommodating. The biking itself was also very enjoyable (they even provided seat cushions since the country roads can get a little bumpy), and was at a leisurely pace, allowing us to be active but not at all strenuous (it was around 18km cycled over ~5 hours, with numerous hour long breaks).

All in all amazing experience, would definitely recommend this to anyone else who's looking to fill a day after getting their fill already of temples at Angkor Wat like we had! Apparently they also do biking tours of Angkor Wat which also sound like a really cool option, allowing more exercise than tuktuks and I would've loved to try it out had we found out before.
Fun non-city experience!

A fun and interactive tour of the Countryside.

On the activity day, we had heavy rain in the morning.
The tour operator was easy to contact and efficient with their reply.
Different solutions were provided and we opted to continue the bike ride despite the rain forecasted.

Sum, our tour guide, was very informative and answered all my questions. Sum spoke excellent english and was easily understandable.
Sum, All the best to you and your family! You are definitely an amazing tour guide!
Amazing and Fun Experince

Great tour with my guide Lot who proactively adapted the tour to my needs. He was very knowledgeable. Although I have been in Asia for > 20 years he introduced me to some new fruits. Lot also gave me many useful tips and contacts for the rest of my trip in Siem Reap.
More generally all the Siem Reaper team was always very diligent and helpful.
Highly recommend this outfit, Lot in particular. You won't be disappointed.
Great tour outside the city.

Great tour through the countryside seeing many aspects of how the locals live. Hong our guide was friendly, very knowledgeable and went the extra mile.

Bikes were well maintained and had no problems.

Would highly recommend for anyone who wants a different experience from the normal stuff in Siem Reap.
