    This guided trip with Chris and Mr Sitha was fantastic! Chris offered us wet napkins and cold water at each stop. We enjoyed the conversations we had with him. Mr Sitha is a very knowledgeable guide. The trip was well thought out. We saw 20 temples around Angkor area in three days. At each temple the guide spoke about the history, spiritual meaning, and interesting stories about the place, pointed out details, we otherwise would have missed, and showed best spots for photos. Chris and Mr Sitha also knew the best lunch places in each neighborhood. Both, Chris and mr Sitha, made sure we are comfortable and happy at all times. Kind and genuinely nice people. Thank you!

    The driver was lovely and took us to all of the highlights. The only small issue was he didn’t quite understand us when we made a couple of requests to see different temples... his basic understanding of English was great, but a bit of a communication breakdown for anything outside of the norm (we wanted to see some of the lesser frequented temples as my friend had been to Angkor before).

This is the best tour we have ever done! Usually we dont like guided tours but for the short period we stayed in Siem Reap we wanted to see and learn as much as possible from and about this beautiful country. From the first minute on, it was definately worth every single dollar and one can say we became friends with our driver Kriss and our guide Tom. Kriss is an outstanding driver and took great care of us. The car was always in top shape, we had plenty of water all day long and laughed a lot together. Tom is a highly motivated guide and speaks perfect english. he explained us everything about the temples, buddhism or khmer culture. also in his free time after the tourdays he ensured we had great evenings. he recommended restaurants, places to shop and also prepared a birthday surprise for my girlfriend. we could always rely on Kriss and Tom. Thank you for everything! The tours setup is perfect and we would not change a single thing!

Profession service from both the tour guide and driver. Sa, the tour guide is very patient and gives a lot of information about the temples we visited. Kriss, the driver, is a good driver and cheerful person. Both speaks good English. As a whole, I find the experience very enjoyable. The pace of the tour is good. In 3 days I was able to visit many temples, including the smaller ones which are not usually in the 1 day tour itineraries. The personal guide means I am able to ask as many questions as I wanted. The tour also included a visit to Kampong Phluk Floating Village. It was a wonderful experience taking the boat ride and having a chance to walk around in the village during the dry season.

Great private tour of highlighted temples. The guide spoke excellent English and was very well informed.

We loved the trip. I took this trip with my wife and 8 year old daughter.
