    Our travel advisor Pheobe was always on time and was flexible to change the plan as well. We also have introduced ume travel and our travel advisor to my friends.

    There was some religious holiday and ume was so kind to show us temple and how people celebrate these holidays - that was a good way to feel the local culture. Our travel advisor Diana arranged accommodation and meals for us and was excellent value for money.

    My wife and I arrived in Phnom Penh on February with ume travel. We had emailed back and forth and Aileen (the travel advisor) assured us we would have a private van with just the two of us for our entire tour. Indeed, everything was as promised. The tour involved visiting different mosques and Hindu temples. But what we really enjoyed was the bicycle ride in the old town and the boat ride. Our hotels were the best available and carefully chosen by Diana. Be sure to stay in Phnom Pehn, Battambang and Angkor with superb staff.

    My busabout cambodia trip was even more amazing than i expected, the transport and hotels were amazing. The places we went to eat were not only delicious but were contributing to community development projects. The best part of the tour was our AMAZING tour guide, Alvaro. He went above an beyond to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. He had amazing knowledge of the areas we travelled to, the history and culture. He took great care of me when i was sick. I will be eager to book another busabout tour with him.

    Traveling to Cambodia was not something I thought I'd be doing this year... or ever really. I always pictured myself in North America or Europe or all inclusive beach resorts... From the moment I met Alvaro and he introduced himself I knew I was in good care and this was going to be one amazing trip. I fell in love with Cambodia with my group and with my tour guide! Everything was so meticulously organized and the knowledge he had allowed him to answer ANY of our questions. We felt so comfortable with him we knew he would only recommend the best places and every time they were not a let down. My partner and I found ourselves in a heartbreaking situation - the ring I had purchased her for her birthday had been left behind in our first hotel. Alvaro, without hesitation, came up with ideas, made calls and arrangements and had organized for the ring to be sent from the hotel all the way across the country to a bus terminal on our last stop. It was there! It was the right one! We are forever grateful to him for this. Nothing was a challenge or too hard for him, no one was too difficult - he took everything in his stride, always remained calm and always knew how to get the party started! If Bus a Bout brought in a new round the world tour and Alvaro was the leader - I would sign up straight away (or I'd have to contract him privately!) I can safely say Alvaro is the best tour guide I've ever had and now friend. Whenever he is in Sydney, we always meet up!

    Alvaro was THE BEST tour guide I've ever travelled with. He was very knowledgeable and was ready to help whenever it was needed. I want to go back to Asia just to travel with him again!

    Had an absolute blast in Cambodia with Alvaro! He taught us so much about the history and culture, and showed us around to all the amazing local food places. He even went out of his way to make sure I got my ring back when I lost it in a hotel! he honestly made Cambodia such a great experience for my group.

    Tour was well organised, all in time (Cambodia time as our tour guide Will was saying). A lot of free time to do own staff or you could choose to do group activities suggested by Will. He knows where to go. We ate Tarantulas, snakes, rats and just normal Cambodian food-ha ha. Good hotels, some with swimming pools, but always comfortable and clean. Tour guide Will was always happy to help.

    Alvaro was the greatest trip leader I have ever had He was so passionate, knowledgable and fun!!! He's now a very dear friend.

    I'm pretty sure I just met some of the best people in the world. My belly is full with delicious food, my soul is enriched, my thirst for adventure quenched...I had so many firsts...ate tarantula, cricket, rat...had my feet picked at by fish in tanks, learned a lot about Cambodian culture/history but even more about South African and Australian culture from my new friends, laughed a ton, represented the US in a beer snorkel funneling contest, schooled everyone at Heads Up, showed the natives how to Nae Nae...each day was so much different than the next. I'm sad to be going home but am happy to have had such an amazing trip. I don't know if I "found myself" but I'd like to think I'll take away more than a couple of awesome t-shirts, way too many bracelets and badass pictures. I'm recharged and ready to make 2017 my bitch...exactly what you want out of a vacation. A lot of this was due to our fearless tour leader Ryan Robson. So enthusiastic, fun and considerate. He really went out of his way to make sure everyone was always having a great time, was never left out or uncomfortable- even the less social members of the group. I wish everyone in this world took as much pride in their job as he does.

    Fantastic nine days spent with an amazing group travelling through Cambodia to see the hilights. We are mature age and the tour leader and the rest of the group were extremely generous with their time and patients ensuring we were ok all the way along. A special mention to our tour leader Ryan for his great leadership and organisational skills as nothing fazed him. Thanks Ryan, for making this a most memorable trip.

    Went on my first busabout and it was such a great experience, Young enthusiastic tour guide, perfectly planned out route. The transport and accomadation was clean and comfortable and found the value added by busabout really outweighed any means of doing this trip on my own stream. Excellent experience
