The pepper processing and growing is nice, but the view, especially the secret lake is beautifull. The history of the lake is interesting. Visit one of the restuarents in the place could be a very relaxing experience- gourmet food and nice the view.

The free tour is informative and lasts about 15min so not too exhausting. Also there’s free pepper tasting (brave yourselves). Products in the shop, accepts card payments. Nice cafe, had refreshments only. Would recommend!

The 40minute Tuktuk ride on red-dust bumpy roads is well worth the beautiful and well organized farm. Simple, efficient and “free” guided tour around the farm. Very interesting. Highly recommended compared to other nearby pepper farms. A must see/must do activity when in Kampot or...More

Nice place tour is longish. Pepper tasting it good and they give back to the community supporting student pepper is very expensive though.

I just showed up and got assigned to a tour for free. They make their money off the various pepper sets you can buy.
