Excellent experience
My friend and I really enjoyed our bike tour of Mekong Island. It was very interesting to see how the people live there and seem so happy with what they have. Nice way to spend time away from the city in a very enjoyable and relaxing way. Our guide, Pisey, was extremely kind and attentive to all our needs. He was knowledgeable and spoke good English. He went out of his way to make our experience a really wonderful one.
