We did a one day tour of Angkor Wat with Sorm, and we had a great time. He showed us around some hidden spots with no other tourists, which was nice. All in a all, a knowledgable and nice tour guide. We'd highly recommend his services.

We had a 2 days tour with Son.
He was just amazing: answering to every single question, he's very smart and passionate about Cambodia (or Campuchia). He loves his country's history and share it with so much knowledge, serioussness and fun. He's a person that you have to meet.

Mr. Sorm Son, our tour guide for 2 days in Siem Reap, has made our trip memorable and happy! He is a kind & polite young gentleman with knowledgeable history background. He knows well the spots to take good family photos. We are happy to have so many good photos to keep for our memories. I was touched by Mr. Sorm's volunteer work to teach children English and also his works with NGO. Thanks Mr. Sorm for being patience with our kids who sometimes were naughty and bored of historical sites. We are touched by the service he has given to us and good luck to him for his future.

This was the first time we had travelled with two other families overseas. Our friends did a lot of research on finding the perfect tour guide for us in Cambodia. Unfortunately, Sorm Son was booked out but he was very prompt in arranging his colleague Mr Ty Soviet (Viet) to lead us for our three memorable days in Siem Reap.

We were very excited about our tour in Siem Reap. However, our 7 year old daughter became quite sick at breakfast on the first day of our tour. She just wished to sleep at our hotel. Viet reassured us with his plan and encouraged us to go along with the rest of the group. When we were visiting temples my husband and I took turns staying with our daughter in the van while the driver remained close by (in case monkeys decided to visit). Viet kept on checking with us and made sure our daughter was fine and we had as many opportunities as possible to visit the unique temples.

Viet spoke very good English and was very caring, funny and knowledgeable about the local area, the temples and Cambodian history. He was also very approachable and friendly. Viet was very good in guiding us to the spots to take the best photos at different sites. We learned a lot about local culture and history. He was great with kids too. He was willing to adjust our planned schedule to fit into our wishes and needs, especially when our daughter was sick. By the end of our tour we felt like he was part of our big group.

We have no reservations in highly recommending Ty Soviet and his company to anyone who wishes to visit Siem Reap.
