We had a lovely tour of Siem Reap attractions with Chamrong as our guide and were happy with the service provided by Him. He was well-spoken and knowledgeable about the sites. He was an excellent driver and was always prompt and courteous.
Chamrong was the loveliest guide. He was ways gentle, helpful, polite and knows so much about the temples, the history of his district, how the people live and work. He was also very flexible, we had to make a couple of changes because our son caught a virus. It was great to directly employ a local, whose income is paid directly by our money, not a big company who pays staff a tiny fraction. We will do this again, and next time we come we will employ Charming to take us to other places.

This is our first visit to Siem Reap in Dec 2019 with a group of friends (6 of us) and has engaged Mr Chamrong as our guide. He is very friendly, able to speak fluent English and very punctual. He able to accommodate to all our request like switching the itinerary base on our schedule. He also bring us to many interesting places which we have requested. Highly recommend you to engage Mr Chamrong as your tour guide when you visit Siem Reap.

I research before all my trips. Often guides (not TBL) can't add much, but Chamrong knew his facts cold. He had a wealth of information about Angkor & Cambodian history & culture. I delighted in his comments & insights. He was very accommodating in tailoring our 3 day schedule to exactly what we wanted to accomplish. Understanding our interests, he made recommendations that were not on our list, & each one was spot on & terrific. He was good-humored & attentive to our safety & comfort. Highly rec!

Chamrong provided more than expected and we were delighted with everything he provided during our 3-day trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia. His gentle nature and knowledge were very much appreciated. We relied on him to show us the highlights of Siem Reap and he did not disappoint.

Chamrong was our guide real gentleman always prompt very courteous and friendly knowledgable about all sites highly recommend
The only way to rate Chamrong is to say he is an excellent guide. Five stars all the way. Knowledgeable, courteous, punctual and a really nice guy to boot. If you are considering a private english speaking tour guide while in Siem Reap I would strongly suggest you book Chamrong. You won't be disappointed.

We had a good tour in Siem Reap, thank you Chamrong for this! It was an informative and delightful tour with him.
We enjoyed our three-day tour of the temples around Siem Reap with Chamrong who was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He has a good command of English and was able to give us a great insight into the Khmer history and culture. He was always early to pick us up and was a very good driver. We planned our itinerary ahead of the trip and incorporated his suggestions. He provided cold towels and water when we returned to the car. We are very satisfied and highly recommend him as a very capable local guide.
Tour was customized and covered everything we wanted to see. Chamrong is an unassuming, knowledgeable guide who was not pushy and adapted the days to our interests.

Chamrong is a terrific guide and we highly recommend him. He is very personable yet discrete -- allowing us to ask questions when we had them, while also allowing us the privacy as a family to talk or just explore quietly at our own pace. Chamrong was completely flexible in terms of schedule and pace -- and was always on time each day. We asked for Chamrong's recommendations for some quiet temples and he took us to two where there was literally not another tourist in site for well over an hour. Fab!
We recently had the pleasure of visiting many of the temples around Siem Reap with Chamrong. He ensured our trip was comfortable, and informative and he allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at each place. We couldn't have been happier. Chamrong is a gentleman who is an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of the temples, the history and general Cambodian life was expansive. Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayon were absolutely amazing to see.
Our tour was fantastic we really thought Chamrong was the best guide we could of had his care and explanation of evetything local was outstanding....10 out of 10 for everything. Thank you Chamrong you made our visit to Cambodia very special. Kind regards Terry and Joy

We arranged a 3 day Siem Reap temple tour with Chamrong. I would definety recommend Chamrong to anyone wanting to experience the temples and their history. Chamrong speaks very good english and is very accommodating with time (as I wanted to take plenty of photos) and would always have a cold bottle of water and refreshing face towel on our return to his air conditioned car (as it was the hot season - 36 degrees plus each day).
Great guide, flexible as we needed to change some of our plans, knowledgeable and always smiling. Rav

First I apologized for taking so long to do this rating and I am not a very verbose person. Please do not confused my brevity for a lack of enthusiasm. Last February I did five days with Chamrong. He was a great guide and very knowledgeable. I was traveling solo and the tours were amazing and the people of cambodia are so wonderful I am returning this year

Chamrong was a real pro Always on time. Very knowledgable. Very friendly He knew not only knew the temples but the best times to avoid the crowds which as a photographer I would most certainly recommend him as a guide
WOW!!! Chamrong has to be one of the best!!!! 6 of us spent 2 very full days seeing all the major sites around Siem Reap and WOW really says it all. Cham went above and beyond. He booked our hotel for us, he got us tickets to an Aspara show, he stopped in the middle of nowhere 'cause one of the group spotted something that would like to see. One of the many spectacular things we were lucky enough to see was the sunrise on March 21st - the equinox when the sun rises directly behind the middle tower

We had a most wonderful 3 day tour in Seim Reep with Chamrong. He was on time, knowledgeable, and really pleasant. It felt like we knew him long before he was our guide. It is very nice to have an air conditioned car to return to after visiting the monuments - especially when it was hot. And he always had cold water and face wipes to cool us down. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend using Chamrong for tours in Cambodia.
Chamrong is one of the best guides we have met in all our worldwide travels. We deeply appreciate his: * Advanced English skills and articulation * Superlative knowledge of the Angkor and surrounding areas * General overview of political, social and cultural affairs of Cambodia and its neighbors, thanks to his previous experience in Govt., NGO and other jobs * Patient, cheerful attitude and friendly demeanor As Indians with good knowhow of mythology, we truly tested him and he passed with flying colors!
Marlene BankwitzUnited States
Chamrong was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the temples and was excited to share this knowledge. He was willing to accomodate the hot weather by taking us back to the hotel to rest during the heat of the day, and take up later in the afternoon. We could not have asked for a more accomodating guide.
Mr Chamrong is a very good tour guide. He is a very polite person, his command of English is very good and he is very helpful. His knowledge on the various sites within our tour which was around Siem Reap is good and his recommendation on the restaurants to eat authentic Cambodian food is good. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is planning on going to Siem Reap for holidays. Thank you Mr Chamrong for our fabulous tour and wishing you all the very best in the future.

Chamrong provided an excellent custom itinerary for us, mixing the famous and some more distant temples with the opportunity to see some beautiful Cambodian countryside. He was extremely knowledgable and would always give us the opportunity to view locations at our own pace. He really looked after us for our entire time in Siem Reap and would not hesitate to recommend Chamrong.
