Unless you want a guided tour (which I guess are offered, but don't know for sure) - you can just hire a moto or tuk-tuk to take you there and back.
I can't remember what I paid several years ago for a tuk-tuk, but it wasn't a lot.
The killing fields are approx 15km from PP.
I'd recommend visiting S21 in PP before going to the killing fields which are now a tranquil and very peaceful place.

Hi, I just got a tuk-tuk from outside my guesthouse for the ride to the Killing Fields. It cost $5 return in June 2007 (low season).
A visit to S21 is also highly recommended.

If you pay $8 - $10 you can get a tuk tuk to bring you to the killing fields, S-21, a shooting range (if that's your kind of thing, it wasn't mine) and the russian markets all in one day.

Good advice above - no need to plan or reserve just look for a moto or a Tuk Tuk or - and this is my opinion - a Taxi driver if you want to avoid the dust on the roads and have a bit of AC. I paid $20 for the entire day shooting range, killing fields, S21, russian market and anywhere else if I was so inclined.
They are easy to find (more accurately they are hard to avoid) along the river road. Chat a few up, find one who speaks some decent English settle on the price and off you go. Hotels usually get a commission so the price may be higher but they would do the interviewing for you to find an English speaking driver.
There are usually guides hanging around the Killing Fields and S21 though if it is a busy day they may be all engaged. Your taxi/tuktuk driver may fill in unofficially if they are knowledgeable.
Just be prepared for depression after the Killing Fields and S21.

There is a large photo above one of the doorways at S21 which made me cry - and negated (for me) the need for the trip to the Killing Fields - I couldn't imagine anything more poignant than that imagery. Regards Marian

How long does it take to get to S21 from PP? And how long do you recommend spending there?

S21 is in Phnom Penh. As to how long you want to spend there, that really depends on you. 45 mins might be enough for you, but then again, you could spend two hours taking it all in.

don;t pay more than 7 USD for a tuk tuk to take you around for a whole day. Well, unless you feel charitable.
