What Our Guests Say
We have just returned from Cambodia and used guides from SVC to visit remote eco lodges. The trip was superb and the expertise of both the Sam Veasna guides and local guides from the communities were second to none.

Our local tour guide took us here as he promised that we would love the trip. And of course it exceed my exceptions. We saw hundred birds which we have never seen in Europe before. Very natural and conservative place to see!
SVC is a great organization that works hard to conserve the environment and protect Cambodia’s numerous species of endangered birds. They also give back to the local communities that we visited, and provide work for local people. Most of the meals that SVC provided were cooked by local women, and gave us a taste of Cambodian home-cooking we wouldn’t have be able to get elsewhere. Everything was delicious!
