There was only me with the driver, they still made the trip. We got to listen to music and even though he didn't speak much English we managed to communicate. Great guy! Be prepared because the road is rough at some points

The bus ride itself was OK. Toilets at bus station not clean. Roads from Kampot to Sihanoukville are not in good condition.

The trip was spot on. Left on time, minivan wasnt full so we had plenty of space. Staff in the office made sure we got off at the appropriate stop for us. The road is pretty awful but the driver was very sensible and made it as comfortable as he could. No complaints, would recommend highly.

Champa Tours is such a not serious company, I would definitely recommend to AVOID THEM! We had a booking at 8:30am to go to Sihanoukville from Kampot. Turned out that we were the only customers. The manager didn't want to bother to send a bus. So when we arrived at 8:am, he told us to wait until 10:30am for the next bus, pretending that it was "being repaired". He should have sent a text the day before to ask, or cancelled and paid back, or found a solution with another bus company. First, it is bad management of their fleet, second, I don't like being lied to. Also we had a ferry booking to the islands and couldn't wait that much. Anyways, please avoid this company. PS: the meeting point on 12go and on the pdf that you receive are not up to date. That even, they can't do properly.
