SCOOP Tour – Cambodia



A bucket list-shredding, once in a lifetime 8-day Tour around Cambodia!

Staying in social or eco friendly accommodation, while eating in the finest establishments in the country, Andy aims to make a positive impact on the country in every way. In short, this will be a trip you will never forget.

Raising funds and awareness to build schools for impoverished children in Cambodia….

Cambodia is an incredible country which is re-finding its feet in the last 2 decades after years of war, genocide and famine. It’s also a country that is moving forward at an exciting pace. Yet despite this growth, 90% of the country live in poverty, without access to education, clean water, healthcare or other essential social services.

Andy simply wants to share this incredible country with you….

Taking place every January…

Be prepared to have your mind blown…

Each January, SCOOP Founder Andy goes back to Cambodia, where the SCOOP story begins, to visit the schools and to relax/holiday. After 7 years he feels he has perfected the week in Cambodia.

He invites donors to join him as he takes in the vibrant city and markets of Phnom Penh, cycles though the incredible Angkor Temples, rides a motorbike up a mountain, swings in a hammock by the river, eats incredible food, drinks like an Irishman on his holiday, visits the schools, and also supports other social enterprises and exciting local businesses along the way. We even throw in an awesome Boat Party at the very end! (Full itinerary below).

Join him for an experience you will never forget. And make a positive impact on a wonderful country and its people.


Interested in spending the day at a top spa? Andy knows Cambodia inside and out, and wants to help you make the most of your trip.
