“Knows all the spots”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Very comfortable and good tour, Sam knows all the spots for the best photos and is a true local who was born in the Angkor area. A good driver who made a flexible itinerary for our specific needs. Super courteous and patient despite our many unscheduled stops which caused the tour to run late.

“Choose Sam”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Sam was everything we hoped our guide would be. Great command of English, great knowledge of the temples (history, religion, nature) More importantly though, great inside knowledge (temples without many tourists, a great peaceful view of sunrise) and people skills. Also a Safe driver and we had a a comfortable touring experience with him. We strongly recommend Sam.

We booked a 2 day tour with Sam. We did the big hitter temples on day 1. It was 33deg 70pct humidity and 2 of our 3 struggled a bit. He was fantastic throughout, dropping the pace when needed, dispensing water and cold towels. He found ways to make temples full of tourists feel empty. He skipped things he could tell we weren't interested in and found more of what we liked. We changed the itenary for day 2 as a result of what we saw on day 1 and he was brilliant, explaining the options in detail to help us make the most of our time. Not much more to add, he was everything we wanted in a guide.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Really glad that we chose Sam for the 1 day private tour!

Totally worth the price we paid for. Sam is very knowledgeable and we were impressed by him. He is not only a great tour guide, but also a great photographer! We end up with many amazing pictures, definitely memorable.

Sam is really thoughtful, he even prepared ice cold towels and water! This is really perfect, especially after walking in the hot sun. Heavenly!

We did the sunrise tour, however, due to the rain, we did not managed to see it. What surprised us 2 weeks later was, Sam emailed us pictures of the sunrise at Angkor Wat! We were so touched by him.

Highly recommend Sam to be your Angkor Guide. We will look for him again when we go back!

“Sam is the Man!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Sam made our two day tour with him a very special time. From arriving early for us to see the sunrise at Angkor Wat until we finished with a tour of the floating villages he was very caring and courteous. He has an amazing knowledge of everything he shows you and finds the best spots away from the crowds to get some amazing photos. Thank you Sam for making our time so enjoyable.
