    A guide who speaks french with lots of humor. Small plantation, very informative. We taste all types of Peppers: red, black, white and the famous Green with which we cook in Kep. Plantation ecorcert and organic. Really nice. Purchases at the end of course but here we are sure of what we buy.

    Who this Miss can be missed definitely something. We were led by the chef himself and had a nice chat with him, to get good insights and also understands at the end why pepper costs a few euros more.

    Great tour, we learnt all about pepper and had a full farm tour for free! Of course the idea is to sell you something at the end, but we felt no pressure to. It was a really interesting experience seeing how pepper is grown and sorted. Pepper snobs now!

    We arrived by motorbike from Kep pretty easily, just taking a left on highway 33 (there are many signs from plantations including Sothys) The tour was given by a local, Kim; his English was great, his knowledge also and he is super friendly. All questions were replied, and the visit was very interesting. They are not at all pushy sellers so just buy if you like. It's delicious so you won't regret it

Where to stay in Kep

Kep has a set of accommodations to suit a range of budgets and styles. The area around the crab market has the greatest choice of options, with aged villas turned into guesthouses both luxury and standard, and resorts of bungalows and stand-alone villas. Some of the more budget-friendly resorts have bungalows with shared bathrooms and limited amenities, while the more luxurious resorts center on old French colonial villas and pack in extras, such as restaurants, pools, and spas. Follow the coastal road down to Kep Beach for the same accommodation types, but with fewer choices.
