“2 days flew by”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Cambodia is beautiful, sorrowful, hopeful. For a first trip, as solo female traveller, absolutely landed on my feet with David as tour guide.

The 'physical' benefits alone make getting a guide for Angkor Park advisable: the aircon, cold water, and comfy seats (I think we were in a Toyota Camry, maybe?) mean you can last longer, in greater comfort, and see much more than touring by tuktuk or bike. But the trip was amazing because of the attention to detail, knowledge, and chattiness of David. Without giving away his secrets - I've seen various Trip Advisor reviews that claim certain temples were boring, or lacked things to see. Usually, these people were using the guidebook only. David opens your eyes to unexpected places, views, and historical facts. I'm a history junky, but David's stream of information was inexhaustible. His english is excellent. For me, a big added bonus was being able to talk and learn about more contemporary history and politics with a knowledgeable and erudite Cambodian.

One minor scheduling confusion (I wanted to see a particular temple that's slightly out of the way) was resolved quickly and professionally. Lunch was scheduled at pre-planned restaurants that did not disappoint. Tours ran 0700-1400, which was more than enough, so that by the end of the last temple I was ready to go back to Siem Reap, but not exhausted to the point of "not more ****** temples"!

“Wonderful guide!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We spent the day with David driving around Siem Reap and touring the temples. David was very informative, funny & accommodating to us. He had lots of jokes so be prepared to laugh through the day! He drove an air conditioned 4WD which was our safe haven from the scorching heat.

Overall, it was a really great day and I'm glad we booked David to be our guide. The temples are so much more interesting when you explore them with a guide.

“Excellent guide and a wonderful country”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We had an amazing trip with David. We arranged a 3 day guided tour via email and David was quite cooperative in our tours. I can be very demanding in arranging my trips up front, and it was a pleasure working with him. We saw all the sights in air conditioned comfort from a well maintained 4WD complete with discussion on the history, culture, religion and politics of the temple complexes as well as Cambodia as a whole. Our visits were well timed to avoid the crowds at the temples, floating villages and the national park in spite of it being the New Year week. We try to use private guides whenever possible, especially with sights like the Angkor complex. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with David and in Cambodia.

“Long weekend in Siem Reap”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Great weekend! Our driver (Mr. Han) picked us up at the airport Friday morning. He was available for anything we wanted to do, even made a reservation for dinner and Apsara dance that evening. On Saturday he and our guide (Ngov) picked us up at our hotel and took us to several temples including lunch at a very good restaurant (local food). Mr. Han greeted us after each temple with a cold cloth and ice cold water. This was much appreciated as it was very hot. Ngov was very knowledgeable about the temples (history, photo ops, etc.). We also really enjoyed what he shared with us about Hinduism/Buddhism and life in Cambodia. Mr. Han then returned us to the airport Sunday morning. Can't wait until my daughters are older so we can return as a family. We will definitely book that trip with David as well.

“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We went for a 3 day tour with David as well as Mr. Sophat in Siem Reap. They were extremely responsive when we sent out the initial email and immediately provided us with a suggested itinerary. They were very flexible and managed to put a lot of our special requests into the 3 day tour. Both David and Mr. Sophat are extremely knowledgeable with the history as well as the current Cambodia. And their English is excellent. We have learnt so much about Cambodia during the trip and definitely an unforgettable experience.
