Thank you for visiting the Cambodia section of our website. All tours are not created equal, nor are all travel companies. In true luxury travel there is no ‘One Size Fits All’ and some travelers will not find us to be a good fit for their needs. Explorers who repeatedly travel with us all seem to share the following attributes -
1. You cherish learning about other cultures.
2. You value your time and don’t want it wasted because of poor planning and/or execution.
3. You appreciate guides with real expertise, intelligence, and passion for their nation.
4. Your most treasured travel memories include genuine interactions with locals.
5. You like large rooms (or suites) with views at luxury hotels with great dining options.
We use the word ‘Tours’ for want of a better term. Since 2004 the Easy Tours family, both at the destinations we offer and, in the U.S., has worked tirelessly to design and facilitate authentic luxury experiences for our guests. About 70% of our guests today are Repeats and Referrals.
Cambodia offers an unmatched experience to lovers of ancient architecture, but it has a plethora of other attractions that are not well known. The multitude of treasures found in the Angkor Region surrounding Siem Reap are awe-inspiring to say the least, with Angkor Wat, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, being the crown jewel among them.
The Angkor Region is obviously an UNESCO World Heritage Site and Angkor Wat is frequently rated highest among ancient sites in surveys of world explorers. Other UNESCO World Heritage Sites that archaeology enthusiasts can ask us to add to their exploration include the Temple of Preah Vihear at the northern border with Thailand, and Prasat Sambor Prei Kuk in the middle of the country.
Cambodia has lush jungles and National Parks full of fascinating wildlife, and the luxury camp at Bensley Collection Shinta Mani Wild in the Cardamom National Park is one of the world’s most amazing experiences for ecologically minded nature and adventure enthusiasts. Cambodia is also home to some of Southeast Asia’s great beaches, with our favorite being the upscale resort island called Song Saa Private Island.
Phnom Penh in the nation’s capital and by far its largest city. Located on the banks of 3 rivers, it offers a delightful combination of beautiful French Colonial architecture and modern structures, as well as historical attractions and a delightful cuisine.
Easy Tours was born in 2004 with two guiding principles - to provide the best small group and private luxury tours for explorers from North America, and to always value our guest’s time. We have not sacrificed these principles on the altar of growth - we still guide just a couple of thousand guests a year total in all the countries we now call home.
Please take the time to review one or more of our detailed itineraries, which are different from other tours, to determine whether we are a good fit for you. The best tour of Cambodia for you is one that touches your heart - your itinerary should make you really want it to start right now!
We know that the best Cambodia Tours should include experiences that delight and amaze you every day of your exploration. This can only be achieved by a boutique agency with local expertise and focus on the following:

Though Cambodia has fewer luxury hotels and resorts than some other destinations in Southeast Asia, the best lodging options found in the nation’s main destinations are unique and every bit as luxurious and charming as those found anywhere. Like at all the destinations we offer, all our Cambodia lodging options provide exemplary service.
Our Travel Specialists spend a portion of every year inspecting hotels and resorts in Cambodia so we can provide you with the best luxury accommodations the nation has to offer. Easy Tours not only uses the best of these hotels, we offer only their larger rooms or suites, and only those with excellent views. We also make sure that our selected hotels offer great local and western dining options.

Most of our guests say that, besides the amazing ancient sites and monuments, the highlights of their exploration included learning about the ancient Hindu and Buddhist traditions that have shaped Cambodian culture and the wonderful local cuisine.
Cambodia has some of the most awe-inspiring ancient sites on this planet, all accompanied by a historical narrative that is similarly impressive. With Easy Tours you get to experience these with Cambodia’s best guides and support staff.
But ancient sites do not often become lifetime memories for true explorers. The memories you will cherish are interactions with locals that you encounter as you explore. Your Tour Director will be happy to facilitate and interpret such interactions.
Cambodia’s landscape spans low-lying plains, multiple rivers including the Mekong, lush rainforests and mountains and a beach studded coastline. Phnom Penh, its capital, is home to many attractions, including the glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum's historical and archaeological exhibits.
The best experiences and places for you in Cambodia depends on what you most enjoy when you explore, and what time of the year you will be exploring. Talk to us if you would like expert suggestions on what we would recommend based on your individual travel preferences.
Most American explorers start their journey in Siem Reap and spend a few days exploring the region’s wealth of attractions. The archaeological treasures left behind by the prolific and highly influential Khmer civilization can be found in the vast Angkor Region surrounding modern day Siem Reap. The most famous of these is the iconic temple complex of Angkor Wat. The scale of the temples and monuments is simply staggering, and in its day Angkor Thom, the city next to Angkor Wat, was twice the size of Manhattan.
The next destination is almost always Phnom Penh, the charming capital city of Cambodia. Founded in 1372, the city is noted for its historical architecture and attractions. It became the national capital in 1434 following the fall of Angkor, and remained so until 1497. It regained its capital status during the French colonial era in 1865 which resulted in many charming colonial-era buildings scattered along the grand boulevards. On the banks of the Tonlé Sap, Mekong, and Bassac Rivers, Phnom Penh is home to approximately 14% of the Cambodian population.
Cambodia is also home to much of SE Asia’s remaining rainforest, and National Parks allow visitors to see many endangered species and exotic tropical trees and other flora. As the best luxury tour company for Cambodia, we offer the option to add other experiences such as leisure time on the ocean.
The year-round warm weather in Cambodia makes it an inviting destination regardless of the season. The season between November and May sees the least rainfall, and coincides with Cambodia's busiest tourist season.
However, a combination of high humidity and highs in the low to mid 90’s during April and May can make it hard for some explorers during those months as their is quite a bit of walking involved while visiting many of the incredible sites.
June through October the country sees more rainfall, with the last two months having most of the rain. The rainy season is when Cambodia's jungles and forests are the lushest.

Because we know great food and a good night's sleep are an integral part of the best Cambodia tours, we offer options between gourmet regional cuisine and fine western fare. We use suites with great views in the best hotels in Cambodia as we do not like small base rooms.
We feel that the most important facet of the best tour packages in Cambodia is your guide’s and chauffeur’s passion for, and knowledge of, their homeland. It is human interactions that make up a discerning explorers’ fondest memories, not how many sights, or cities, they visited while touring. Our guests tend to wax poetic about our colleagues, and write many paragraphs about them in their reviews!
