“Accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable guide.”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Mr. Vuthy was recommended to us by a friend and is an excellent guide for Angkor. He is quite knowledgeable about both the history of the ruins as well as general information about Cambodia and its culture. He can adapt the time and tour to your interests and focus on the aspects of Siem Reap which you find most interesting. He takes care of all the details ranging from transportation to admission and dining options and charges a very reasonable rate considering. Additionally, he has a network of many other guides who are all talented and he can refer you to them if he is booked. As an added bonus he knows all the best photo spots around Siem Reap and will take some great pictures of you.

“Best Tour Guide”
Reviewed 30 December 2010

My brother's family and I travelled to Siem Reap in July 2010 (10-17th) and were fortunate enough to have Mr. Sem Vuthy as our guide. He was referred to us by a friend and really was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and professional and entertaining. He arranged for a car and a driver who was also very professional and accomodating.

We were travelling with a 4-year old and Mr. Vuthy was extremely patient. He helped us with the little boy in climbing the numerous steps that we had to climb at each and every temple. He was always accomodating when we had to run to a department store to find diapers or bread or other convenience items. He was flexible in adjusting the pre-planned itinerary to our convenience.

We also had dietary restrictions in the sense that we were vegetarian. Mr. Vuthy made special efforts to search for all the vegetarian restaurants and took us to a different one for every meal. When we could not find a restaurant with vegetarian options, he translated out request to the restaurant staff and had off the menu items ordered for us.

Finally, the attention he pays to keeping the water cooler well stocked and having cool face wipes ready for use is as you come back from all the climbing is just awesome!

“A huge knowledgeable tour guide of Angkor Wat”
Reviewed 9 December 2010

My husband and I and our two children ( 12 & 14 years old ) have just returned from Cambodia where we were lucky enough to have Mr.Sem Vuthy as our tour guide. Sem Vuthy was very friendly, speaking English very well, lovely for our kids, always in time, intelligent and full of humour, very knowledgable about the whole area and history, everything we want a guide to be!
We would especially like to thank Mr Sem Vuthy, our excellent tour guide. He was the very height of conscientiousness, highly informed and extremely educational. He performed all his duties with kindness, hospitality and diligence, in particular for making our Cambodia trip very special and memorable!
I also found Sem Vuthy through the forums here on tripadvisor and emailed him prior to our visit. He put together an itinery but when we met him on our first day we advisied him that we had decied we wanted to less but see it in more detail and at a pace where we could wait to get pics without people etc. He was more than happy to readjust the plans and also tried to take us at times and to places to avoid the main crowds as much as you can do this at Angkor Wat and Bayon temple .
His english is great as well as his knowledge on the temples and his country.
He is professional at all times and we really feel we had made a friend in the end.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone who would like a personal tour catered to your needs.
Please do not hesitate to contact him via his E-mail : semvuthy_007@yahoo.com

“Very knowledgeable and accommodating guide to he temples and beyond!”
Reviewed 20 November 2010

Sem Vuthy has been working as an official guide for the Angkor Temples for seven years. He is very accommodating, knowledgeable, energetic and prompt. He will meet you at your hotel without any downpayment whatsoever. His english is excellent. Not only does he tell you the history of each temple but of Cambodian culture as well. Great guide and highly recommended!

“Great Tour Guide!”
Reviewed 16 October 2010

My friends and I recently visited Siem Reap and Sem Vuthy was our ride to/from the airport and for the two days we were on vacation. Sem is very professional and entertaining. He told us fantastic stories and knew where to get all the best pictures while touring the ruins of Angkor Wat, shared the stories of the families living in the floating village and took us to the Silk Factory and the Artisan Village. He was always happy to answer our never-ending questions and is very knowledgeable about the culture and history of Cambodia. I would highly recommend Sem to anyone planning a visit to Siem Reap!
