    This was my first tour in Asia and it was excellent. Our guide, Kom, was so knowledgeable, friendly and easy going. I learnt so much about Cambodia - good, bad and heartbreaking - and found a people who were warm, gentle and friendly. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

    This was the third Gecko's tour I had been on. I thought Cambodia was every bit as good as Egypt when it came to ancient sites. The town centre of Siem Reap was beautiful and provided a good atmosphere for night night activities with the group. I would have loved to stay an extra few days in Siem Reap but that is not a criticism of the tour. In hindsight, I should have arrived a few days earlier. The trip to Phnom Penh from SR was priceless and the fried tarantulas was unforgettable, a tour highlight in its own right. Phnom Penh was good but not quite Siem Reap.
