Poland was an excellent tour guide. He spoke very good English and was engaging. Particularly moving was his recollection of the macabre Khymer Rouge days. The words he spoke will forever be remembered by me, He is very highly recommended

Lan was excellent.Typhoon Lando delayed us and he kept optional dates open. Our 6 day stay in PP reduced to 1.5 so we had to substantially rethink the program. Lan was flexible, picked us up at the airport to maximise the time we had with him, and open to all our last minute replanning. He has that knack of knowing when to leave us alone (Choueng Ek) and when to give us information. His personal history helped to illuminate Tuol Sleng in a very personal and touching way. Wish we had more time with him.

We enjoyed Oudong Old City but thought we would of seen a bit more like seeing the residential or something. Don't get me wrong we liked what we saw but be aware you need a lot of energy for walking up & down steps We opted to do around 5 hours only just to see Oudong City but had to pay for full day tour which I wouldn't do again and in that time we got stuck in a traffic jam to do with VIP for over half an hour The guide was very nice & helpful If you are doing Oudong don't do it in the heat of day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: They just want to see The Oudong, they don't want to see the other things. I took them to visit two places, first visit pagoda near by the Oudong Mountain call ( Vipassana Thurak ) where the monks and nuns do the meditation and than we clamb up to the hill to see the old temple. It was stuck on the way back about 40mn because the police blocked the road, when we arrived hotel around 4PM. Total about 7 hours for this tour
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have asked Polan to consider offering this tour at a different time of day and reminded him to set the duration of his tours accurately, as this tour was listed at 8 hours when it was only meant to be 5

Polan is extremely familiar with Phnom Penh - and the city's historic burden. We could not have hired a better tour guide to introduce us to Cambodia's capital. Polan did an outstanding job - his knowledge, combined with his personal engagement and his excellent English language skills made for a very educational and moving experience. HIGHLY recommended.
My guide was imformative and conducted tour in friendly and knowledgeable manner, would recomend to anyone. Great Day
