Well worth going in dry or wet season. Very interesting if you want to see how Cambodians living on the waterways really live.

What a learning experience it was to see how the people live on Tonle Sap Lake. The homes are incredible to see. The water level is low in February but our guide walked us through the whole community and shared a lot of information with us about the life of the people. Our great guide was Nak Chung. Ask for him. His English is very good.

This was a fun tour. Our tour guide was excellent. It was the second tour I took with him. He really knows the history on Cambodia. I hope to go on another tour with him.

We visited Kmpong Phluk in the dry season so our tour was on foot. Very interesting to see how all the homes were built on stilts. We did have a boat tour out to see Tonle sap Lake and a short canoe ride with a local. It would be worth coming back to see the village during the wet season; it would be completely different. Be sure to take a car or mini van tour, not a tuk tuk. The ride by van was 35 minutes and at some points we saw people having to get out of their tuk tuk and walk up small hill's bcz the tuk tuk couldn't handle the extra weight. Our tour guide Chausan was excellent- try to request him. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

We had a very interesting and enjoyable day with our guide, Jack. The tour was very good value for money and our guide gave us real insights into the lives of the people who live on the lake.

The visit wasn't bad, nice variation to seeing the Angkor Wat temples, but we felt it was overpriced for what it was and felt like we were either wasting time or faced with a bit of a tourist trap. Firstly we were told to wait in our hotel lobby between 1-2pm. I've been on plenty of day trips before and have always been given a 15-30min window of pick up. Not only were we unsure when we'll be picked up, these guys arrived at 2pm - and we were first on the pick-ups. The boat ride was fine, good to see the houses on stilts (NOT floating), but then you had to either pay $5pp for a canoe ride or wait for 30-40 minutes. Waste of time. It wouldn't have been bad if this was part of the overall cost. The ride into the lake was good, but again, tourist trap. The boat sat there while smaller boat vendors came to sell drinks or snacks. Sure, it a way to make a living but at least give a bit of a ride around a small section of the lake first.

Our guide, Jose, was fantastic - he was a wealth of information on the lake and the villages on the lake and his English was very good.
