“The Best Way to See Angkor Temples”

Khmer for Khmer Organisation
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: KKO has operated off-road tours to the Angkor Complex and the surrounding landscapes since 2011. Our Label OFF TRACK combines two enterprises with the common goal to help our NGO gain independence from fundraising and donations. Our offers consist of unique bicycle, motorbike and trekking tours with the idea to show the Cambodian culture, nature and local lifestyle off the beaten tracks. The OFF TRACK tours have a special range of full and half day tours in Angkor and Siem Reap. Discover the temples of Angkor, explore the countryside around Siem Reap, experience a true slice of Cambodian village life or follow remote paths through tropical forests. Your expense will not only present you with a once in a lifetime experience of Cambodian culture but at the same time supports a local school to continue providing free education to unprivileged children. All profits go directly to KKO’s educational and vocational training centre.

As we rode our bikes off the beaten path (past the hoardes of busses, tuk tuks, cars) and onto dirt roads, through a small village, and over a river - I definitely felt that we had made the best choice for seeing the Angkor complex!

Our guide, Lyna, added so much to the tour as well. His explanations were very interesting and provided so much information we could not have gotten had we gone alone. He was very patient with us, never complaining or asking us to hurry up even though the tour went way longer than it was meant to (we move slowly). Additionally, he was a great photographer and knew the best ways to take some shots ! An unnecessary but greatly appreciated skill :) Thank you Lyna for sharing so much about the temples and answering all our questions about your life as well.

KKO from start to finish was very helpful, considerate, and accomodating. It was a goal for us to find an organization that we felt good about putting our money behind - and I loved hearing about KKO's story!


Negatives: Bike seats are very uncomfortable. Your butt will hurt. Also, the restaurant we ate lunch at (accross from the last temple) was bad and overpriced. Granted, we could have waited until we were back in town but we were very hungry at this point and it's pretty much the only option. Skip it if you can.

*Take Note: For Angkor Wat I knew I had to be covered, so brought a wrap to throw over my shoulders. This was not enough to visit the top level! Even though I was more covered than some people in T-shirts, you -need- to have a shirt with longer sleeves. Cannot be a scarf or shawl. All the other temples were fine.

Thank Veronica S

Dear Veronica S,

thank you very much for your honest review! We highly appreciate that you had such a great tour with Solyna and were fully satisfied with his guiding and photographer skills!

It's great that Solyna could tell you everything about our organisation and our goals and what we are actually doing. This is one of the most important parts of our tours because 100% of our profit goes directly to our education programm of KKO.

We know about the very hard bike seats are looking continuously for improvements. We normally provide seat paddings, but after 8 hours bike ride your butt will still hurt. Right now it's still some kind of an off track experience but we will try to find a solution as soon as possible.

Regarding the restaurant we will sit down with Solyna and ask him in which restaurant he was. We will then analyse this and make adjustments so that there are no more complaints about the restaurant.

Yes, unfortunately the guards at Angkor Wat are very strict. I feel sorry that you couldn't get up to the top but thank you for letting others know that they should wear at least a t-shirt.

Thank you for becoming part of our KKO family!

We wish you all the best,
Khmer for Khmer Organisation

I went on a half day countryside bike tour in and around Siem Reap, and it was truly the highlight of my days there. My only regret is that I did not do the full day tour. Although advertised as a small tour with a maximum of maybe 8 people, it ended up being just me and the guide Luk. So I had a personalized tour, what a treat. Luk was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and flexible, we had a fabulous time. That my fee went to benefit KKO, which is a wonderful organization, made it a win-win. Thank you Luk, and thank you KKO.

Dear David D,

thanks a lot for your review. As you mentioned our maximum group size is 5 people, but we don't mind to do tours with only one person as well. We are always happy if we get the chance to show someone how the real Cambodia looks like and what we are doing to support the locals.

Thank you for becoming a part of our KKO family!

We hope to see once again in Siem Reap to join our Full-Day Countryside Tour!

All the best,
Khmer for Khmer Organisation

There are 4 of us, including a 6-year-old kid who can't ride a bicycle. The tour guide specially prepared a pedestal for cyclists, passing local markets, mushroom farms, temples and beautiful countryside. We rode a total of 20 kilometers. Although tired, we did it. This is another highlight of our trip in Siem Reap except Angkor Wat.

thank you very much for the nice review. Every customer is treated the same whether he is one year old or 100 years old, whether the person can ride a bicycle or not. We always try our best to offer the same experience to everyone.

Accordingly, we are all the more pleased that your entire family was able to share a unique experience.

Thank you very much for becoming a part of our KKO family!

We have been doing a tour with the young nice guide called Solina (i hope i spelled the name correctly). We were 5 during the tour and all of us loved it. If you are a fan of off road tours you will enjoy.

Dear Flowervictory,

first of all, yes the spelling is right. He used to write his name Solyna but Solina is also fine. ;-)

He's very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with him that much!

Thank you for joining our tours and supporting our education programme!

Amazing organisation and guides! We had two separate tours - a day bike tour to the temples and a half day motorbike tour in the countryside - and both times there was nothing to fault. We had an incredible time both days with loads of local knowledge shared by our thoughtful, friendly guides as we spent time exploring and learning about the local culture, the history and the charity. It was wonderful to think our trip was helping others and we’d highly recommend it !
