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.
Martha WarnerUnited States
It was a pleasure to tour with Chamrong! His air conditioned car was very comfortable for our group of 4. Chamrong's knowledge of the history of Cambodia, the temples, the wars, and the people is very deep and comprehensive. We loved his guided tour of the "Indiana Jones" temple and the elephant ride he arranged. He knows great local places for lunch too. Do not miss!
very friendly n patient. Thanks to Chamrong for his good service!
Vera ZableUnited States
Chamrong is an excellent guide who is extremely knowledgeable in the history of Angkor Wat and all of the other temples there. He arrives exactly at the time he tells you he will come. My husband and I are senior citizens and he was very careful in the amount of walking he had us do and the amount of stair climbing we did. I can highly recommend him as a superior guide and a really nice and thoughtful person. If you hire him as a guide,you will be very lucky.
Francis D NolanUnited States
Absolutely wonderful guide. Always on time. Always solicitous. Always courteous. Very knowledgeable. He willingly changed the itinerary to suit our needs and desires. Very cautious driver. I can highly recommend him.

Really nice person and competent and extremely professional guide.Reliable, generous with his time and flexible. He took us on a tailored 3 day tour which went (as much as possible) against the flow of crowds. He also arranged other transportation of very good quality. Highly recommend.
Jorge L.United States
Chamrong was an excellent guide for our three days around Angkor Wat. He was well organized in his itinerary as well as sell as able to deal around last minute changes and accommodate our requests. All days he was prompt, with a clean and comfortable car (Camry) and very gentle driving around sometimes pot-holed roads. Above all, Chamrong displayed a love for the history of Angkor and was able to cover ancient history, art and contemporary issues. He was also willing to share with us his personal life.
a thorough short tour of the temples, and surroundings, good private car, and service
Craig MeyersUnited States
Chamrong was the perfect guide. Extremely knowledgeable and courteous as well as flexible to changes, this was a once in a lifetime tour for my wife and I and we're pleased to have spent it with him. I would unhesitatingly recommend him.
Chris RobinsonUnited Kingdom
Really happy with our tour with Chamrong. He has a fantastic knowledge of Angkor and made sure we were in the right place at the right time to avoid the crowds. He could point out details we would certainly have missed, ensured we took pictures from the right places and gave us just the right amount of detail to ensure our understanding without overloading us with facts. He is also a lovely man with a great sense of humour. Thank you so much Chamrong. You made our holiday. Chris & Sonia Robinson

My family and I had an excellent tour by Chamrong, he took us to some great temple sites and provided clear and insightful comments at all of them. The kids really enjoyed the 'undiscovered' temples as they could explore without the crowds. The trip was customised for us and Chamrong was really helpful. I felt that given the tour price the van could have been a bit better, 4.5 stars from me.
Very pleased with tour and Chamrong. Despite my lack of mobility I saw all I wanted to and more! He was so helpful!
Chamrong was an excellent guide and driver (driver was ill). He is very flexible for the tour and you can ask him to change it while you go. He knows the sites very well and gives excellent information. Moreover his english is good and you can understand hime very well. We had a very pleasant stay! Thanks Chamrong
Weng Cheong PoMalaysia
Chamrong is a great guide. Gentle, courteous, timely and obliging. Will not hesitate to recommend him as a guide to any tourist. Knowledge of Siem Reap history is excellent.
We had a great trip to the temples of Angkor Wat and surrounding areas thanks to Chamrong. He had many interesting stories to tell about the religions (Hinduism and Buddhism) surrounding the kings that built the temples as well as just soo much knowledge about what is known of the history and the civilization that built the temples. It was a beautiful trip, it was a lot fun and Chamrong really made this possible. He has a very relaxed zen like personality that it's easy to see the temples with him.
Chamrong made our trip worth while because he was able to explain well the history of each temple. He is very professional and can speak English fluently. He was also very kind enough to accommodate the changes in our itinerary. I will definitely recommend him to our friends.
Chamrong did very good job. He has excellent knowledge of temples of Angkor as well as other points of interest within Siem Reap area. We really enjoyed his tour and his company. He also told us a lot about local culture and everyday life of people in Cambodia. I should also mention that he has good sense of humor. :) I can highly recommend his services.

Chamrong is a very good guide. He is friendly, knowledgable, punctual and obliging. We had a great time in Siem Reap. Would certainly recommend his services to anyone needing a guide there.
Lynne HeizelmanUnited States
Siem Reap was fabulous & much of it was because of my guide, Chamrong S. Arrival day he was at the airport to meet me & easy to find with my name on a sign & even though it was pouring I had a great tour of Angkor Thom. He let me know what areas were flooded of the places I wanted to see & was very flexible about our schedule as things changed due to the weather. I saw villages & people & learned things about Cambodia I would never have been able to see without Chamrong. Fun, professional-THE BEST GUIDE!
Kevin MiltonSingapore, Singapore
Excellent tour and guide. Chamrong was very accommodating and pleasant throughout the tour and when required personalised it to suit our requirements. He is very knowledgeable about the temples and Khmer history and was only too happy to answer questions on the subject which enhanced the tour. Chamrong is highly recommended and we shall definitely be recommending him to anyone we know who wants a knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating tour guide.
Chamrong was a wonderful, pleasant and very accommodating guide. My family and I were very impressed with his English speaking skills and his ever pleasant demeanour. Slight hiccup when the van broke down on the way to the River of the 1000 Lingas and we had to be out in the heat for a bit, otherwise, the whole tour was amazing. Will definitely recommend this tour to my friends.
Adele SandersUnited States
Chamrong was super! Knowledgeable, timely, thoughtful - it really made the difference between an okay tour experience and a really memorable and super one. I heard other guides talking to their clients as we walked around and I just wanted to keep sharing some of the extra bits of information that we heard from Chamrong that they didn't hear from their guides. We truly appreciated having Chamrong as our guide for the 3 days. Adele and Gary.
