What people are saying about Siem Reap Province

In conclusion, it was a very satisfying tour. I was able to comfortably and efficiently tour representative ruins of the Angkor ruins group such as Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple, Elephant Terrace, Bapun Temple, Ta Prohm Temple, Angkor Wat. Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable and gave us a detailed and easy-to-understand lecture on the history of the ruins. Also, since he is a very friendly person, I was able to have a lot of personal stories along the way, and I was able to spend a pleasant time. The driver, Tim, was polite and I was able to ride with peace of mind. The guide's hospitality is very high, and I think it's a high-quality tour in general, so when you come to Siem Reap, we recommend everyone to join! Finally, thank you David and Tim for your guides. Thanks to you, I was able to make a very good memory in Cambodia!

This was one of my favourite experiences in Siem Reap. Sorya and her team are so welcoming. The class was incredibly authentic, with a visit to the local market and a walk through the home herb garden. There are a number of dishes to choose from, all very delicious and Sorya takes into account all dietary requirements. The knowledge, care and attention was faultless and it is clear to see the impact this work has on the whole community. Such a brilliant class!
