Amazing experience! Kamsan is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the sites and knows how to avoid the crowds. If you can only do one tour, THIS is the one to do!

Tour: #350410, 2-Day VIP3 : 5 Best temples + Best Floating Village, Siem Reap, Cambodia    view tour
Date: Mar 1/19

This tour was excellent and went beyond our expectations. Kamsan was a very good guide and took us in back ways to be ahead of the crowds as well as giving us all the history of the temples. Kamsan was excellent in answering all my questions about family life, beliefs and many topics not related specifically to the temples, too. Separate the driver, comfortable car, good lunch. Water only provided. Need pay for entrance fees separately, but Kamsan got us through that quickly. Very happy we did this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John and Carol, I would like to say thank you so much for your valuable time to write such a great review. Your contribution is really much appreciated and helpful. Thanks a lot for your books that I love reading them. You made me miss you all the time, and your books probably change my life. I'll keep you updated.

Kamsan was absolutely fabulous. We've had the opportunity to utilize Tours by Locals throughout the world and his knowledge, attention to details, and attentiveness is unmatched. He has spent many years researching the background of the temples and the greater Siem Reap region and helped us truly appreciate and understand the forces that created the Siem Reap masterpieces. Of particular note he always found a way to beat the crowds and even enabled us to be alone in one of the great temples.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, I would like to express my sincere thanks for your great review of my ultimate service. Nothing happier than making my customers the greatest holiday. Thanks again for feedback Best Regards Kamsan

I wish I could rate Kamsan as 10 out of 5, but the software won't allow it :-). Absolutely the greatest tour guide you can get: expert in history, best spots for taking pictures, smart strategist to avoid crowds, and a guru in iPhone photography. Also he organised the logistics extremely well (icy cold after each leg of the tour; driver was on time etc.). A big THANK YOU for the experience as I was on a tight schedule and managed to see everything I planned.

Kamsan collected us early with his driver in an air conditioned car- through his great knowledge he ensured that we avoided the crowds and yet saw 4 of the best temples- lots of local history delivered with a great sense of humour- plenty of water and cool towels when we were hot and he stopped to let us buy a great coffee to keep us going during the morning. Tasty lunch stop again at a clever moment to avoid the tourists- an excellent day - thank you

We did the sunrise tour. Kamsan met us at our hotel lobby, all as arranged, and we started with sunrise at Angkor Wat. He knows how to avoid the thickest of the crowds and still see the key sites. He provided us with ample background information on the various temples and was even game to add an extra one at my wife's request. The driver (Mr. Phirum) was very courteous and ready with cold water and cold towels - a welcome treat given the humidity even in mid-November. All in all, highly recommended.

We absolutely love San and had the best time seeing the temples in Angkor with him! You can tell that he is passionate about what he does and truly enjoys it. He's funny, kind and extremely knowledgeable. We loved hearing about the history of each temple and also his own personal stories. He kept us hydrated and cool with these amazing eucalyptus towels throughout the day. We now have a new friend in Siem Reap and would highly recommend him!

Mr Kamsen was absolutely wonderful. With his expertise he chose the right time to be at the temples away from the crowds and the best spots to stay for pictures! His stories and knowledge about the history and recent politics and events is immense, and he can tell them in a funny and amusing way. Service when picking up very good with cold towel and cool water. He is very considerate and flexible when we needed to change some schedule. He also recommended further things to see for us. 5 Star !

Brilliant day with our English speaking guide San and driver Mr Phirum. Excellent explanation of the history of the temples and Cambodian life in general. Day was at our pace and we had option to add more sights if time permitted. The cold towels and water were most welcome after every temple visit. Highly recommend San for his knowledge of how to beat the crowds of tourists so we had lots of time to take photos and explore. Driving was steady and not rushed. Thanks for a fabulous day and experience

Kamsan was simply incredible! We only had a day to see everything and he made our time at the temples really count. We hit everything I could of imagined and more weaving our way around crowds and went to some temples without any crowds. (I don't know if we were lucky or if he was just that good!) Kamsan is also a wizard with the Iphone for pictures and captured so many cool photos! Highly recommend!

Kamsan provided a terrific tour of the Key Angkor temples. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of temple history and design. His ability to explain the history and meaning behind specific aspects of temple design really helped bring it to life. He is very engaging and enlivens his tour with interesting anecdotes and the occasional joke. He also has a knack for figuring out how to beat the worst of the crowds. The short boat trip on Tonle Sap, the great lake of Southeast Asia, was very worthwhile.

Kamsan must be one of the best tour guides out there! We made a late change to the VIP3 tour as weather was cloudy so no point seeing the sunrise at Ankor Wat. Kamsan was more than accommodating for this change but above all was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He took us to the best temples and knew the perfect places to avoid the crowds and knew all the spots to get the best photos. Absolutely fantastic guide for an amazing place!
