“Sopanha : N° 1 Tour Guide for ever !”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

Myself and husband contacted Yous Sopanha among other tour guides companies a few weeks before our visit to Cambodia in order to visit off-the beaten tracks temples but accessible from Sieam Reap. He was very reactive and responded to us in a professional manner with great temples suggestions. Prices were reasonable so we decided to book a two day tour together.

Sopanha has a unique personality, a very kind person who loves his family and country. I wish all tour guides were like Sopanha and want to share his knowledge and earth with you ! We had the chance to meet his family at the end of our stay and really loved this special diner and evening we spent together.

Sopanha with its nice 4x4 clean car was always reliable and on time. On our first day tour we visited the temples of Ko Ker. I wish these temples stay away from the crowds forever. Located 3 hours from Siem Reap for sure it is not on the group tour's program and that's great for individuals !! During the whole tour we were by ourselves ! AMAZING !!! Selfishly, I should not talk about these temples and keep it secret as Sambor Prei Kuk temples we visited on our second day. We were the only tourists there and you feel priviledged to have the site "only for you" !

We will come back to Cambodia soon and visit other provinces and hopefully Sopanha will be our tour guide and friend accompanying us in this new adventure !

“Memorable visit to Angkor sites with private guide, Sophana Vous”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We were so fortunate to have visited the wonders of Angkor and the Khmer Empire in the company of Sophana Vous. As our guide for three days in January, he had a disarmingly easy, gentle manner, an encyclopedic knowledge of history, sensitivity to multiple religious traditions, and a passion and pride for his country. His English language was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him, and highly recommend him to others lucky enough to be visiting this extraordinary corner of the world.

“Great time at Angkor, thanks to Sophanya”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Visited Angkor for 3 days in April and had a great time. Sophanya made the trip even more wonderful.

Planned the trip months ahead and decided to go for him bec of his website, the reviews here, his quick email replies (bec his uses an Iphone) and itemized pricing. And he didn't disappoint us. Very knowledgeable about the history, the best spots for photo taking and best of all provides first hand information about his personal experience in concentration camp under Khmer Rouge. The Central Boutique hotel he recommeded to us is wonderful, clean, beautiful, 10 min walk to Pub street and more economical than the one I had in mind.

Sophanya spotted me right away when I step out of the airport and we have not met before nor seen my photo. We travelled in his very nice and COOL (couldn't do without it in April) Honda CRV and our normal day is from 8 to 11-12 noon where we were brought back to hotel for lunch and rest. Then he pick us up at 3 (always punctually) and returns back to town around 5:30 to 6pm. So we still have lots of time for shopping, dinning and relaxing in the pools. Very accomodating when we decided to change part of the itinerary as we would like to see more local culture. He surprised us when he treated us to dinner in his nice delicious little restaurant where we met his wonderful family. He also brought us to out of town dinner for a wonderful roasted beef dinner where the locals go, and we ate like a king. And on the way back, bought us Durian.

All these he was not doing for a customer, but for a friend.
Thank you my friend for the fun we had.
