Fun, exciting, informative tour, all while working out.
This biking tour is a great idea if you like to do active and adventurous activities. It was very fun and informative. The group was able to bike through the dirt roads and see how people live along the countryside, all while getting to some of the temples. It was also very nice seeing the sunset from our vantage point. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, letting us take some rest breaks and providing us with water, mango, and watermelon. This trip is not for the faint of heart. The ride wasn’t too long (approx 10 km each way) but we were all definitely sweating. The terrain can be hilly and rough and took some getting used to riding ( I’m only used to biking in the city with a road bike). The company provided helmets and good fitting mountain/hybrid bike with large tires for the dirt. My only suggestion is to for all the bikes to have their own flashlights as it got pretty dark on the way back. Only the group leaders had some. Hopefully by the time you read this, they will have updated their bikes.

Great Family Bike Tour
Our family of 5 did “Off the Beaten Track” Tour. We visited a village market, a basket weaver at her home, a rice paddy field, a rice wine maker, and a ceramic piggy bank maker. This tour was a great way to see how the Cambodian people live, learn about their economy, interact with locals, all the while biking 21km. We tried the rice wine and enjoyed some local fruit. While we realize it may not be an accurate picture of the entire population, it got us closer to the local culture than had we just gone to the temples. Our tour guide, Vong, had great English, was quite knowledgeable of Cambodia’s history and economy, and was passionate about his country.

Wonderful tour with fantastic guide
We booked the 'Off the Beaten track' tour after searching around for something a bit less touristy, and had an amazing morning. Vireak, our guide, was so knowledgeable, helpful and funny. The whole tour is along very quiet and safe roads and it doesn't take long to reach the beautiful countryside. Everyone you meet is very friendly and it is so great that the company contributes to all the businesses you stop at, as well as helping students through their studies. We can't recommend this company highly enough, there is nothing that I could suggest to improve the experience. Thank you so much Vireak for a wonderful experience!

Half day sunset bike tour
These folks are lovely, patient, and knowledgeable. They took us and our nine-year-old over 16km around Angkor Wat around sunset. We booked late, and they were super accommodating. Highly rate them, they were an unforgettable part of our trip.

Countryside Bicycle Tour
Dec 2019
We booked our bike tour through Trip Advisor with Butterfly Tours. This group of young students have a very good community support and environmental initiative in running their small company. Our guide ‘Vong’ was hilarious and spoke excellent English. The tour begin with a 7:30am hotel pickup via tuk tuk and the tour itself started from their shop around 9am and finished around 1pm. We rode along pathways and sideroads with beautiful countryside scenery along the way. We visited the Three Centers Market, a farmers market that gathers 3 times a take where local farmers gather to exchange fresh produce, fish, meats, and small goods. It was lovely to see the true hard working Cambodians and get a glimpse into their daily lives. We also visited a family that does basket weaving. The government finds an expert weaver in each district and pays them to train all the wives to become expert weavers. This process allows families to derive additional income and passes along an age old skill. Prices for rice, baskets, etc. are set by the ‘middle-man’ who gathers the items up for export out of the country. The farmers and artisans then are all paid the same amount regardless of their negotiating ability. But the highlight of the tour was the visit to the local distillery where they made rice wine! It was a basic process of distilling but the final product, infused with herbs, was quite tasty. In fact, to my untrained pallet it rivalled the best bourbon from Kentucky. It was strong at 50% alcohol but very tasty! They told us that mothers of new borns are given a shot of this whisky every day to help with their recovery. Not sure how that worked into the breastfeeding though.

Great off-road tour / we learned a ton
The good things first:
+ the tour offers visits of the countryside and meet “normal” people
+ we got a very good impression if the typical daily life
+ our tour guide, Sam, was very friendly and helpful (he had to manage two issues with our bikes which was handled very well and quick by him and the office)
+ the tour is suitable for everyone - it is not physically demanding; also our teenagers liked it a lot
+ an open mindset and nit judging atttitude by our western norms is highly recommended to enjoy. It is a completely different way of life compared to western European cultures

What could be better:
- cannot think of something better.

Info:
The tour organization was founded by students and the tour guides are all students. The learn English skills and presenting in front of small groups.

Fantastic tour - do it!
Perfect way to get to know the landscapes and countryside just outside of Siem Reap. We had good mountain bikes and comfortable seats for enjoying the beautiful sand trails with all the holes in the streets. Our very good english speaking guide, Chum, was very nice and friendly and did explain us a lot about the spots we visited and about Cambodia in general. We had no hurry at all and really could enjoy all stops and ask a lot of questions.

The best thing for me was that we visited a local market where you would never come by and Chum showed us many different foods and let us try. He bought fruits there for our snack on the tour, very tasty and you see that your money goes directly where it has to. Great company!
