“A+ Service and best Driver and Tour Guide Ever”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We first tried having a private driver and car in China a couple of years ago and thought it would be nice again for our relatively short stay in Cambodia. We got in touch with Philip Hogg and from day one found his company to be first rate and very attentive to our every need. Philip responded promptly to all our emails. He set out a five-day itinerary that met our every wish, as well as adding a few extras we would not have known about, based his many years of local knowledge. When we arrived in Siem Reap, our driver David was there with a sign held up for us which is always so nice. On our drive to our Hotel, David pointed out a few places of interest including Angkor Wat from a distance. David was also very open with telling us the good and the bad about Siem Reap. He said to avoid the “street” food so you would not chance getting sick. He recommended Pub Street and the Night Market as must sees in town in the evening. We did this every night, which became an unexpected highlight of our time in Cambodia. Finally, David gave some restaurant recommendations. One was FCC or Foreign Correspondent’s Club which we went to twice and were two of the best dining experiences we had during our month in Asia. The next day we were met by David and our government registered guide Tokla. For the entire time we were with these two gentlemen over the next four days, we felt special and taken care of. David had a cooler full of cold water which was very welcome given the extreme heat. Tokla was such a nice young man who was extremely knowledgeable and clearly proud of his country’s history and the wonders of all the temples. The small things I remember the most, from noticing my fascination with the symmetry of the architecture and pointing out how perfect this was in each temple, to finding us shade, to showing the best places for photos, taking us back to a particular Artisan’s shop and so on. This review is for two things – firstly, we highly recommend Philip and his company and secondly we thank both David and Tokla for making our time in Cambodia extra special.

“Incredible Tour in Cambodia Again”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Working with Phil and his team was an exceptional experience again. I had 16 high school students on a custom designed Culture, History and Religion Photography Tour. Phil was outstanding responding to my emails and helping to keep within our budget restrictions. He help us organize all of our meals, tours, and my hotel choices. He also helped us with establishing a relationship with a rural high school,initially, last year, when I brought a group and helped us to broaden and deepen this relationship this year. The guides we had (David and Borey) were knowledgeable, attentive and fun to be with. Phil has my greatest respect and appreciation. I hope to return again. Cambodia is such fascinating, rich and impressive experience. Be aware of the extreme heat and make sure you are drinking several liters of water a day, always wearing sunscreen, and this year we needed bug spray as the mosquitoes, at night, were feisty.

“Great guides!”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We booked a customized tour with Siem Reap Day Tours during our recent trip to Cambodia. I selected a list of activities I was interested in and Phil developed a customized tour for my mom and I. The guide and driver were both very friendly and informative during our tours. We would recommend the service to anyone visiting Siem Reap.

“Visit to Siem Reap and the surrounding areas”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Thank you to Phil Hogg and his excellent team for a very interesting and well-organised trip to Siem Reap and the area. Borey (guide) and David (driver) were extremely courteous companions as well as being very good in their respective fields. Borey was so well-informed and obviously enthusiastic about his subject it was infectious, and David's expert driving and his suggestion to visit Beng Mealea was a huge bonus. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others as they did such a marvellous job.

“Wonderful trip”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

Just wanted to thank Phil and David for the wonderful trip to Siem Reap. Phil arranged everything (meals, hotel, private guide to Angkor Wat, and arrangements to the airport)for the 6 of us to make a side trip from our cruise ship in Sihanoukville Cambodia and travel to Siem Reap and Angkor Wat. He arranged for us to be picked up in an air condiitioned van at the port in Sihanoukvile. He sent his English speaking assistant, David Khmer, to travel with us. David was outstanding and so attentive in making our trip a success. We enjoyed every minute and are so thankful to them for making this side trip a reality. Without them. we couldn't have done it!! Many thanks for a trip of a lifetime!!
