Our guide Mam was absolutely lovely. Really prompt and organised with us. Texted us at 5.45am and sent us a photo so we could recognise her when we meet. She is also really friendly and knowledgable about the history of the 2 temples. Her english could be better but you can always ask for clarifications. Everyone loved Mam on the tour.

Our host Nuch was fantastic. Very friendly, knowledgeable and her English was very good. The tour was really interesting. Nuch gave us lots of information and history then we had free time to take photos and explore at each location. Would recommend to anyone considering too book!

We missed the first trip due to traffic, was so easy to call up and rebook for the later tour! Such an interesting tour- Mam was lovely. She even managed to get us into the temple although it had gone over slightly past closing- would recommend 100% to know extra information about each part of the temples.
