What people are saying about Siem Reap Province

I was very pleased when I met my guide Chenda as I had read recent reviews that all mentioned how amazing he is. I was not disappointed. I ended up with a private tour as I was the only person booked for today. I was picked up right on time and we set off on our adventure. We travelled through local villages and then entered the national park. By this stage the road was a bit bumpy but my driver Mr Yang was very careful and I felt very safe. First stop was the lookout which lived up to the "amazing views" Chenda thoughtfully took over photography duties for me, and he did an excellent job. The temple &reclining Buddha were very interesting and Kulen Waterfall was magnificent. A memorable day, made even better due to Chenda's enthusiasm for his job. I would strongly encourage you to book this trip

Chenda was the BEST guide. He's an archaeologist during the dry season, and knows ancient Cambodian history inside and out. He's also a devout Buddhist, so we learned a lot that we didn't know about Buddhism. The tour itself was excellent and well-paced. There are a lot of stairs, so fair warning. The waterfall was truly amazing - don't be afraid to get in the water up near the actual falls! I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone, especially if you want to get out of super-touristy Siem Reap for a day.

Truly GREAT tour of the most famous temples by Jeep! Not only the breathtaking scenery but especially the passionate English speaking guide Chum being professional, knowledgeable and sharing great stories from Khmer history. Taking care of his customers and making them feel welcome in his country. MUST DO

This is such a good experience and there was only 6 in our group. We had this huge boat to ourselves at the end for dinner with any drinks we wanted. The sunset was beautiful and was worth it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone :)

My tour guide, David, was really great! super friendly and keen to hit the highlights before the crowds got there. when everyone else canceled on the group trip he upgraded me to a private tour free of charge!
