Everything you need to know about our Phnom Penh food tours
HOW LONG DO THE TOURS LAST? WHEN AND WHERE DO THEY START?
Morning tours start every day at 7:30 a.m. and are over around 11 a.m. Evening tours start at 5:45 p.m. and are over around 9 p.m.
Our morning tours meet at the main Post Office in Phnom Penh on Street 13, and our evening tours meet in front of Cambodia Public Bank at Olympic Stadium on Sihanouk Blvd.
After the tour we can drop you off at your hotel or somewhere central, if you would prefer.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our tours cost $65 USD per person. The price of the tour includes all of your food, drinks, and transportation during the tour.
If you are traveling solo, there is a $30 solo supplement. We will refund this amount on the day of the tour if other guests book the same tour. We can also help you arrange to join a tour with other guests, if you prefer.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN A TOUR ACCOMMODATE? CAN I DO A PRIVATE TOUR?
In order to provide a truly personal in-depth experience, we usually limit our tours to small groups of up to four people. For an additional fee, we can give you an entirely private tour, by prior arrangement. We can also organize private tours for larger groups.
CAN KIDS GO ON A TOUR?
As long as they are comfortable with a little bit of walking, yes! The cost for kids 5 to 11 is $45, and kids 4 and younger can come for free, as long as they can sit on their parent's lap in the tuk tuk. If there are children in your group please include a note in the questionnaire with their ages and anything else you think we should know.
IS CAMBODIAN FOOD SAFE?
We only include restaurants and vendors on our tours that we know well and that maintain hygiene standards that meet our criteria. Guests can be confident that what they eat on our tours will be safe as well as delicious. Note that stomach upsets are not uncommon among visitors to Cambodia, even those who only dine at fancy hotels. Standard precautions are always a good idea, but when you tour with us, you can enjoy authentic Cambodian cuisine worry-free.
CAN YOU ARRANGE A VEGETARIAN OR PESCATARIAN (FISH-ONLY) TOUR?
We are happy to accommodate vegetarians—our morning tour offers the most vegetarian options. Pescatarians will have no problems at all; just let us know in advance.
WHAT ABOUT A TOUR FOR THOSE WHO EAT GLUTEN-FREE? OR A RED MEAT OR PORK-FREE TOUR?
We can organize tours that are gluten-free and/or don’t include pork or red meat. Do let us know in advance, please, if you have special dietary requirements and we will do everything possible to meet your dietary needs.
WHAT ABOUT A TOUR FOR THOSE WITH ALLERGIES?
We can accommodate guests with most food allergies. But those severely allergic to peanuts, shrimp, and certain other foods commonly used in Cambodia face the risk of cross-contamination and are advised not to venture on a food tour, and we cannot assume responsibility for those whose allergic reactions may be severe. If you fall in that category, please email us before you book a tour.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MORNING AND EVENING TOURS?
Our morning and evening tours are unique experiences with completely different itineraries. Our morning tour focuses on Cambodia's breakfast culture and its lively wet markets. The morning tour offers lots of wonderful photographic opportunities.
On our evening tour we "dine around town," visiting several hole-in-the-wall and family-run restaurants and a night-time food market as well as trying some of Phnom Penh's best street food.
How do I book?
Because our tours are small, if you'd like to tour on a particular day we recommend booking in advance. Tours can be reserved up to 30 days in advance.
You can reserve a tour on booking page using a credit card. If you're in Cambodia, we also accept payment via WING.
