  • I would like say that heather and I spent 16days riding through Cambodia with Sam (wc) and Emily ( omelet), this was the most amazing experience we have both ever done and accomplished. From day 1 jumping on the bikes and riding through Phnom Penh through the organized chaos into the back reaches of Cambodia and back again, we now have to think very hard in what we will have to do for our next holiday. If any one wants to live outside the box for a mind blowing trip with something new and bizarre every day Cambodia Motorcycle Adventures is your way to go. If you want to ask me any questions about our trip please don't hesitate to MSG me I will be open and honest as Sam and Emily will testify to. Again thanks for the wonderful trip and will send the helmet cam footage as soon as I can.

    Mark Baker - Quilpie, QLD, Australia

    Home and back to work for me, thank you so much Sam and Emily for the most fantastic holiday. I can't stop talking about it.

    Heather Baker - Quilpie, QLD, Australia

    Thank you Em and Sam for your hospitality and care when touring Cambodia on your Full tour.

    The use of the Honda Phanton motorbike was both enjoyable and relaxing for a part time motorbike user, being both safe and reliable.

    The no rush schedule led to greater opportunities to see those Cambodian least seen sites such as city and country life and beautiful scenery.

    The experience of a lifetime, I would recommend to all motorbike riders and potential riders no matter what age.

Depending on the reason for the cancellation, you may be able to reclaim the cancellation charges (less any applicable excess) under the terms of the insurance policy. All claims must be made direct to the insurance company.  Clients are wholly responsible for arranging their own insurance and are responsible for ensuring that their personal travel insurance gives protection for the full duration of the tour in respect of personal belongings, medical expenses, injury, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment, with adequate and appropriate cover. Clients should ensure that there are no exclusion clauses limiting or excluding protection for the type of activities included in their tour. Clients should satisfy themselves that all travel insurance purchased meets their particular requirements and should arrange supplementary insurance if need be.

If the actual cost of the loss or damage exceeds the amount paid where estimated, you must pay the difference once known. If the actual cost is less than the amount paid, the difference will be refunded. You will also be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us and all costs incurred by us (including our own and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of your actions. You should ensure you have appropriate travel insurance to protect you if this situation arises. If you have any medical condition or disability which may affect your active participation in your tour or the tour arrangements of any other person or have any special requirements as a result of any medical condition or disability (including any which affect the booking process), please tell us before you confirm your booking so that we can assist you in considering the suitability of the proposed tour and/or making the booking.
