Detours Policies

There is a magic about Cambodia that casts its spell on many that visit this charming, unique yet confronting kingdom. Ascend into the realm of the gods at the mother of all temples, Angkor Wat, a spectacular fusion of symbolism, symmetry and spirituality. Descend into the hell of Tuol Sleng and come face to face with the Khmer rouge and the killing machine. Welcome to Cambodia...a country with a history both inspiring and depressing, an intoxicating place where the future is waiting to be shaped....the kingdom of wonder awaits you. All our tours or should we say detours have been designed to show you the real Cambodia. From the chaotic yet charismatic capital of Phnom Penh, to the beaches of Sihanoukville, the chilled out and relaxing Kampot and trekking up Bokor mountain, elephant riding in jungles of Mondalkiri Province, ogle the Mekong dolphins at Kratie, to the awesome temples of Angkor Wat and further out temples we have the lot. Heaps to see and do and all available right here, if we do not have a tour or itineraries to suit you than just let us know and we can tailor them to make a special tour for you.

Zero tolerance

All of our employees are full time long term employees and are selected on their talents and skills, but more importantly they are very nice people. All have police clearance and all come from well respected families.

Relatively speaking they are all well paid and their  conditions of employment are exceptional for Cambodia; however one thing we do not, have not or will never tolerate is any types of scams, rip offs or tricks. We have a zero tolerance for these practices - even asking customers for a tip is not on - nor is accepting any secret commission from suppliers. As a guest you can be assured our guides will not expose you to any of these practises.
