Sophon (Tom) was an absolutely excellent guide. Great English. Great knowledge of Angkor Wat history as well as history of Cambodia in general. Thoughtful, considerate, helpful, honest and very kind. Touring with Sophon (Tom) was like having a friend as our tour guide. Great air-conditioned car when needed. Cold towels and lots of cold bottles of water. Sophon (Tom) was dedicated to meeting our wants and needs. We definitely recommend him !

We asked Sophon to create a tour that was different to that we had mainly experienced in our previous few days in Cambodia consisting mainly Cities and Temples. He took us to the unique fishing village of Kampong Phluk and to Tonie Sap lake. This was exactly what we wished to see. Villagers going through their normal ( difficult) life and to an area that is vital to the economy of Cambodia. His knowledge was first class, his personality and openness made us feel very welcome. Great driver and a vehicle
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter I really appreciate you so much and would like to say big thanks to you, well, I was so glad that you decided to experience this authentic lifestyles of Cambodian. I hope this experience will be a big memory to your trip. I hope to see you again in the near future. Thanks Tom

Sophon was the perfect tour guide. He was very easy to communicate with in advance of the date about logistics and itinerary. Even though my friend and I stayed at different hotels, he picked each of us separately and promptly. Sophon was easy to communicate with, flexible to our needs, and knowledgeable. He planned a perfect itinerary that was filled with a diverse range of delicious foods (sans scorpions, snakes, and water bugs, which we learned were only for tourists) and a few locations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne Well, I hope you have beautiful experience with our foods. I really thank and appreciate your visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia! I do hope to see you again in the near future. Thanks Tom

Could not have asked for a better guide and day in Siem Reap. Sophon (Tom) our guide was waiting for us at the airport. He took us straight to the temples and informed us all the way of the history and daily life in Cambodia. It was a hot day so for Sophon to have water and cold towels for us as we went from one temple to the next was a life saver! Sophon is also a great photographer. Thanks again for everything. -Gianpaolo and Margaret
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gianpaolo It’s my great privilege to be your personal tour guide.

I would like to say thanks so much and appreciate both of you! Thanks Tom

Excellent tour with Tom! We loved our 1 1/2 day custom tour for 6 people. Tom was knowledgeable, informative, great at showing us the best locations for photos and skirting the largest tour groups. He really knows his history and answered our non-stop questions about culture and politics. We learned so much about the country and are really inspired to return. Thanks again for making our trip so wonderful.
