What people are saying about Siem Reap

Vuthy was a great guide with a dry sense of humour and he taught us a lot about Cambodian history and culture. Vuthy and Alex (the driver) did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We booked the private tour and so we were able to look at the ruins at our own pace. Vuthy also showed us all the spots where we can take good photos with panoramic views. It was a great experience!

Angkor Wat is an incredible place with important history. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I'd warn people with any mobility issues that there are stairs, some very steep, without handrails, everywhere and navigating them is must to fully appreciate the site. It was also very hot so we pounded through tons of water.

our guided tour went very well. we were lucky to have good weather when we went to see the floating villages (rainy season) the guide was very nice .and everything was explained wonderfully. I highly recommend for those who want to see the floating villages !

Wow wow wow this tour was the absolute best - our guide was amazing he was funny kind and looked after us - the tour itself was probably one of the most amazing tours I have ever done - 100% worth the money - A memory that will last a life time

Amazing service and bike. Highly recommendable. Drop off and pick up at the hotel, responsive communication.
