  • Very good and fresh Cambodian food for little money is their bikes, as well as the tour on the pepper plantations in the different languages is not a problem

  • What are the differences between white, red and green pepper? How is it grown? What are the specificities of Kampot pepper? Already consumer of Kampot pepper before my stay in Cambodia, the discovery of the pepper of Sothy was perfect to learn more about its culture, its treatment and the work involved before being enjoyed. Tour very nice, easy to reach by scooter (we visited the pepper after a morning Kampot-> Kep scooter). To do!

  • KEP we took a tuk - tuk it is quite eccentric between 15 and 20 km. Guided tour in french by volunteers helpx or obviously in English. Very informative for pepper lovers. Tasting of white, red, black pepper and especially the Green that is fresh. Explosion of flavors for the palate. The plantation is surrounded by orchards and their mango pineapple jam is a treat. Do not hesitate to go as icing on the cake, the visit is free.

  • We read on trip advisor that this farm is must go. But our trip it was disaster. We came there, we saw one group which had a guide. But staff told us to wait 45 minutes for the next group, we ask if we can join previous but they told no. Also told that they almost finished, as we realized later they just started. We were waiting 45 min, in the meantime we wanted to order sth in restaurant but no one was there or they just ignored us. After 45 minutes they told to wait 10 minutes more, then 5 minutes more and then 20 minutes more. In that moment we decided that we are done. We just went back to the city. They are nice to you only if you spent a lot of money there. I regret we choose this farm.
  • Really interesting and insightful tour. Pepper slightly more expensive here than elsewhere, but it pays for the tour (which is free) and a great enterprise.
  • A volunteer gave us some background info and then took us on an informative tour around the pepper plantations. We got to see the pepper growing, drying, being sorted and then packed. They have a restaurant but we didn't eat. There is also a shop selling the pepper and jams and teas.
  • they arrange 1 hour free English tour , they will show you the whole process of organic pepper farming, and you can taste all kinds of peppers, of course you can buy some organic pepper there. Don't forget the restaurant , the food is cheap and tasty!
  • 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!
