Sam was a great guide during my 3 day tour around Angkor World Heritage sites. From his knowledge of the history and stories for each temple down to his command of English, Sam can be considered as one of the best guides I have utilized during my extensive travels. Thanks again Sam for an enjoyable and educational 3 days.

Sam was by far the best tour guide! He was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, funny, extremely accommodating so thoughtful and an awesome photographer! Our driver Vanett was amazing aside from driving us around in a very clean, comfortable cool van, Vanett had an abundance of cold water and cool eucalyptus cloths which were awesome! It was a pleasure getting to know them both. Our trip through Siem Reap and surrounding areas was enriched and so much more special because of these two wonderful people

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Madam Debbie for using Toursbylocals and choosing my tour service for your Cambodia trip. You all were great, generous, friendly, and sociable people. Best wishes to you and your family always !!!

Sam is a great guide! With extensive local knowledge, he's able to explain to us all the local culture that intrigued us. Perpetually smiley and jovial, he made the trip more enjoyable. Besides that, he is very attentive to my parents needs. He took an extra mile to arrange for wheelchair for my mum, and made the trip as comfortable for her as possible. Appreciate that level of thoughtfulness. Highly recommend Sam to anyone who wants to visit Siem Reap!

What an amazing day we had in Siem Reap and tour guide Sam made it memorable. Sam was professional, funny, knowledgeable yet flexible. We visited many temples, learned about the history and the religious conflicts. Sam also pointed out othe photo spots. It wa a hot day and the cold towels provided by Sam throughout the day was a refreshing touch. If in Bangkok, a 1 day/night side trip to Siem Reap via plane and Tour guide Sam —- highly recommended.

Sam was a great guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip with him to Phnom Kulen. It was great to visit secluded areas of the mountain and Sam made sure everything ran smoothly. He was very kind and made sure we had everything we needed after the tour ended - even taking us out of his way to help us buy our temple tickets for the following day. Recommend this tour to anyone!

We spent three days with Sam touring Anchor Wat and other temples. Communication prior to the tour was efficient. Additionally, we modified the tour to fit our needs which was not an issue. Sam was always prompt and easy to communicate with (his English is very good). He also took very good care of us during the tour by offering bottles of cold water and refreshing cold towel. His knowledge of the history and culture are extensive. We highly recommend him.

Sam was always punctual and prepared. He came with cold water, towels (very very good for the weather), hats and umbrellas. He is friendly, knowledgeable and always ready for good shots. Sam was there from the time we stepped out of the airport till we left for Phnom Penh by night bus. Sam went above his duty to get us to our bus at night, which was much appreciated. A guide is what allowed us to cover so many sites in less than 2 days. Thank you Sam for doing a fantastic job!

Wonderful tour. If you can spare 3 days this is the way to spend it! Sem was great, it was like a friend taking you around Siem Reap, the Temples and surrounds. He was pleasant, courteous, patient, willing to go the extra mile, more than happy to stay with us well beyond when his day should have ended. We has happy to impart his knowledge of the sites but he was also willing to share information about himself and life in Cambodia. Thank you Sem for making our trip memorable. Love your panoramic pictures.

Vuthy was a wonderful guide witha very well organized itinerary. He was always concerned with our comfort and was able to be flexible and adaptive. We asked to skip a waterfall and substitute a visit to a killing field He instantly made it happen. We also ad libbed with a visit to a tribal farming village and he had no issue with spontaneity. He never rushed us and was always very helpful and most informative about any and all of our questions. He also helped us with photography.

This was a great 1st day in Siem Reap. Up early for sunrise, and a full day of temples, food, culture and history.

Our trip to Siem Reap & Angkor Wat was a super success, and only one person gets full credit for that - Sam. He was a driver+guide+photographer all in one. Grab him if you can. Despite not having a lot of ToursByLocal reviews on site, I trusted him over some of the better-reviewed guides because of his prompt & clear communication before trip confirmation and I am glad, it paid off. If you can lock down Sam as your guide, you are in a treat and thankful to me for this advice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much Mr. Nik and Madam Rita for using my tour guided services for 7 days during your Cambodia trip. As a service provider, nothing else makes me happier than to hear that my service provided is appreciated by my clients. And thank you so much for spending your valuable time to write and post a candid review for my tour services. Best wishes to you and your family !!! Happy New Year 2018 my beloved brother and sister !!! I always miss you.

What can I say, Sam is truly the best tour guide that I have had. Extremely outgoing, organized and so very knowledgeable about the areas that he guided us at (he knows all the best spots). He readily extended and adjusted his tour to create a custom experience for us. He's delightful to spend the day with, full of conversation and facts about the temples. A special treat was the cold drinks and fresh cold towels that he offered during the day. Sam created a thorough tour of the Siem Reap area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Judith for your candid review of my tour service. As a tour service provider, I'm so glad to hear that my tour service has exceeded your expectations. Best wishes to you and your family !!! Happy new year 2018 !!!

Sem is very knowledgable, very flexible and very personable. He is prepared with ice cold waters and cloths to cool yourself with after walking around in 90+ degree heat. He knows where and how to take all the great photos and he answers all questions knowledgeably. He does a great job in a 3-day tour to show you everything. He is also just fun - great sense of humor and storyteller - which is important for a busy 3-day tour. I would recommend him for any tour and can't thank him enough.

My 3 day ,36 hour private tour of Angkor Wat with Sam was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. He was incredibly knowledgeable and articulate about the symbolism of the Hindu and Buddhist influences. He created several opportunities for me to interact directly with locals and Buddhist monks. He consistently took me to uncrowded spots the group tours were avoiding for some incredible views. I think he took as many pictures as I did. I felt that I had a new Cambodian friend after this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Larry, At first let me take the opportunity to sincerely thank you for using Toursbylocals and my tour service for your Cambodia trip. I'm so glad to hear that my tour service has exceeded your satisfaction. Many thanks, Sam

Sam is a wonderful guide; great personality, very courteous, polite, knowledgeable, good English, flexible. My flight was late so we did not have time for full itinerary as planned but we were able to hit the highlights. He taught me so much about the rich history of the temples, took some fabulous photos of me at Ta Prohm as I was solo, and really looked out for my safety and well being during inclement weather. I felt very safe. He picked me up at airport, took me to buy temple ticket and to hotel.
