Tour Itinerary

 Stop 1: Paddy Fields

Our tour begins with a bike ride to Siem Reap’s sprawling paddy fields, where your guides will introduce you to the day-to-day routines of local farmers. Many of our guides will be able to give you in depth insight into this agricultural activity, having worked in the fields with their parents from a young age.

 Stop 2: Handmade Baskets

On our next stop, we will take you to view handmade baskets woven by our local villagers. Get to know our weavers and learn more about this intricate craft, which is traditionally passed down from parent to child.

 Stop 3: Local Market

Our third stop will be at a bustling local market, where you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of locals buying and selling produce. Discover local products not found anywhere else in the world!

 Stop 4: Rice Wine

On our final stop, we will take you to a local rice wine distillery. Here, you will learn more about the processes involved in the making of rice wine as well as its use in holistic medication. And yes—if you’re wondering—you will also get to sample a taste!

“A unforgettable morning”

On our last day of our Siem Reap trip, we decided to activate our lazy legs with a bike tour with butterfly tours. Afterwards it became one of the highlights of our trip.
We were picked up by Tuk tuk on exactly the agreed time and after a short introduction we were on our way on perfect bicycles and with a great tour guide Mr. Song. He took us on small sandy roads without any other traffic to a small market, some local family businesses producing wine, rice noodle, baskets and pottery. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. He let us taste some local fried insects as well as a shot fresh rice-wine.
The company is founded by local Cambodians and is, in their way, contributing to the local villagers.The trip is completely hassle free; we were not asked to buy anything neither we were taken into any shops. He purchased us drinking water from a small market and I noticed he gave some money to the families which we were visiting as a contribution for their hospitality and naturally therewith supporting them. Their fee is very reasonable indeed, and no bla bla hassle.
Long, was a very pleasant person and kept us busy. He excellent English kept us talking about many things. He was not shy to share his own story with us including the fact that he does not know much about music.Great.
If you have some spare time, go and see them and find out yourself.
