We had Driver John and Tour Guide Top Joe. both were wonderful and extremely helpful. Joe was a wealth of information about all the places we visited and many other questions about Cambodia. John was happy to drive us out of his way at the end of the day if needed. John even stopped on request if we saw a shop to look in on the way to or from on organised event. both John and Joe were great. I would recommend Odyssey tours they are not the cheapest but my experience was worth the extra money.

Fantastic tour organized by Alick Peng at IOT. Loved everything about our tour and having very knowledgeable guides and safe drivers allow you to really enjoy the experience. We began in Siem Reap with Muni as our guide. He is passionate about his country and answered all our never ending questions. We did the temples around Siem Reap and then ventured to Battambang where we rode the bamboo train. We all really enjoyed this and the countryside is amazing. We had a new guide in Phnom Penh called Richard. He was also well educated and gentle. I would highly recommend both guides and drivers. Our driver in Siem Reap was particularly attentive with water and towels as it was very hot. We enjoyed 3 nights at Sihilunouk which is a beautiful beach area. We stayed in Sokkra 2 which is the quiet, cleaner more family end. This is our second time with IOT and both experiences have been extremely memorable and they have made the tour itinery just how we wanted. I would definitely book again.

My husband and I recently went on a trip to Cambodia organised by Odyssey Tours. It had been some time in the planning and many changes were made over that time. Thomas Tang, our consultant, could not have been more helpful and patient. He has been there all the time answering email queries from me immediately, even on a Sunday! In consequence, we felt comfortable and confident when we arrived in Phnom Penh and this confidence was justified. 


Our trip started in Phnom Penh where we stayed at the Sofitel Pokeethra which is an absolutely stunning hotel I would highly recommend. From there we drove to Battambang for two nights and then on to Siem Reap.


Both our guides, Mr Veasna and Mr Sothy, were very well-informed, courteous and helpful. Our drivers, whose names I don’t have, unfortunately, were also very friendly and nice to be with. I should also say that Mr Sothy (our guide for most of the triip) showed an amazing ability to alter the itinerary to fit in with us, for example when the thought of walking up 3000 to 400 steps in the heat was just too daunting for a mature couple!


If you have time, I do think that driving to Siem Reap via Battambany, rather than flying, is a wonderful experience and gives a greater appreciation of the country. We saw and heard all sorts of things we may not have in a big city, for instance a funeral in the next field to the hotel in Battambang which went on for a day or so with some absolutely beautiful singing. 


Cambodia is a fascinating country with a lot to see, particularly the temples in Siem Reap which are astounding and breath-taking, and the people are just so lovely and friendly - the staff in the hotels cannot do enough for you. All in all it was a marvellous trip; I am grateful to everyone who contributed to our enjoyment, and would recommend Odyssey Tours to anyone planning a trip.
