Inquiry Submission By tangojohnDallas

i am returning to Cambodia for my fourth year in a row. This year I arrive in Phnom Penh on August 30, 2018 and leave from Siem Reap on September 16. I have taken the Great Ibis bus and it went pretty much as promised with no attempted scamming like I have experienced on their route from Ho Chi Minh city to Phnom Penh. I have learned about a company offering a tour of silk islands and other activities along with transportation partially by boat ending up with the last 4 hours by van or car. When I read this companies reviews they are very mixed with quite a few complaining that they never did most of the activities promised. I would like to see the Silk Island and I am wondering if it is better to just take a tour going and coming from Phnom Penh and then take either Great Ibis or Mekong Express directly to Siem Reap? Also is it possible to go to the Silk Island by hiring a tuk tuk driver? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
