Hi . Staying in Cambodia for 9 days was perfect. Cambodia is such a beautiful country. I got to explore the real countryside and all ancient cities of Khmer. Thank you Lao for putting everything together for me. I highly recommend this tour to everyone!

Lao is a fantastic guide. Excellent English, great to chat with and made the tour exactly what we wanted. The temples tour in the jeep was just awesome. Nothing was a problem for him - He helped get SIM cards for us and made sure that we knew our way about from the hotel, recommended the hotel we stayed in. Just like having a family member in town with us. Thank you so much. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew and Louis, it's a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for coming to Cambodia and I do hope to see you again. Warm regards, Lao

Lao is fantastic! We had a fantastic time with Lao as he showed us around Angkor. We discussed the history of Angkor within the context of religion and the military conquests of rival kingdoms. We talked about the evolution of architectural styles from one era to the next. We took many pictures, we enjoyed conversation over breakfast and we came away with a sense of the beauty and depth of the place. Lao is very sincere and enthusiastic and this is refreshing. His passion is wonderful.

A fantastic guide, full of knowledge about the temples, their construction, history, meaning, and just what all those wall carvings mean. We learnt so much. His personal story is fascinating. He and his driver picked us up on time from our hotel. He speaks very good English, and maintains contact via email before the trip. All in all an excellent tour guide who we recommend 100%

We engaged Lao for a two day tour. He and his driver ensured we had a truly comfortable experience( with a constant supply of chilled water and cold towels). Lao is very knowledgeable about the temples and the history of Cambodia. And considering he is articulate and has a sense of humor we really enjoyed our conversations with him. He was very flexible to our request about a change in the itinerary. Overall, we had a wonderful time and couldn't have picked a better guide than Lao.

My family of 4 had a lovely day with Lau and the driver. The vehicle was comfortable, we had cold water and icy cold cloths after every stop and we did not feel rushed at all as we toured the many temples on the schedule. The day was extremely hot but Lau made it so worthwhile despite the heat. He had a great sense of humor, was very knowledgeable about the temples, the history of how they were built and the culture that impacted the area. Highly recommend Lau!!!! Thank you Tours by Locals.

Top notch guide - our tour was exactly what we were hoping for! Lao was v responsive while booking our trip & tailored our itinerary to suit our group (kids:9/11/14). He's passionate about Cambodian history (we learnt a lot), polite & punctual, fluent english, good sense of humour & took great photos. 2 of us were ill but he remained flexible whilst ensuring we still did everything we had planned. His driver & vehicle were great. We had lots of iced water & towels (v appreciated in the heat!). Many thanks

I have done a number of tours through Tours by Locals, all of which have been good - but this one was the best. Lao was very knowledgeable, super friendly and just a pleasure to spend the morning with. And he paced the tour just as I wanted while customizing it on the fly. If I ever get to bring my family here, we'll be contacting Lao for a tour!

We had a wonderfull time with Lao. He is a very friendly and open guy with a good energy. He speaks good English and has nice stories. We visited three temples: Angkor Wat, the Bayon and Ta Prohm. He explained the history very well and explained all kind of details that were to be seen on the walls. There was a car available with cold water and cold towels. We will gladly tour with him again.

Lao was an amazing guide for my wife and I. He promptly picked us up at our hotel and worked hard to help us quickly navigate ticket lines and found us a great spot to watch the sunrise. After Angkor Wat we stopped for a relaxing coffee and our packed breakfast. Angkor Thom and "Tomb Raider" were also amazing tours. Lao provided great background and information on the art and legends seen throughout the day. We were never hurried and could go as fast or slow as we liked. Also, his english was superb!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Isaac, Thank you for your great feedback. It was my pleasure to be your guide in Siem Reap. Since you only had one day in Siem Reap, I couldn't have done better to make sure you enjoyed your holiday in Cambodia. I was very happy to hear that you would come here again to be an English teacher. Stay well! I do hope to see you again! Yours sincerely, Lao

We spent two exceptional and memorable days with Lao and driver who was kind and helpful by providing water, cool towels and insuring our comfort. We requested a change in itinerary. Lao graciously created a new design. Lao is fluent in English, intelligent, kind, flexible. He is extremely well informed and imparts his knowledge of temples and Cambodian history in a stimulating way. Lao is also a great photographer. If you want the best guide ever, choose Lao.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey, Thanks for your great feedback. I am very happy to hear that my services exceeded your expectations. I am always flexible to ensure my clients' satisfaction. I hope you like all the photos taken at those temples and share with your friends about your time in Cambodia. I do hope to see you again. Thanks again for your recommendations! Yours sincerely, Lao

Lao picked me up right on time in a nice, clean Lexus SUV. It was stocked with cold water and cold washcloths which were refreshing after each stop. His English is fantastic and he is well educated on all things related to the temples and tour, as well as Cambodian history. He is also a good photographer so he knows the best spots to take photographs and can also take one of you if needed. Communication via WhatsApp was easy as well. I recommend him with no reservations.

Our tour with Lao was absolutely terrific. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about the temples and the history and culture of the region, but he was great company during our 3 days in Siem Reap. He speaks excellent English and was very attuned to our priorities and needs. Lao and the driver met us at the airport, took us to our hotel, and drove us everywhere we wanted to go, providing informative commentary along the way. It was the highlight of our trip to Southeast Asia. Well worth the cost.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rebecca and party, Thanks for your great review. I am absolutely excited to hear that Cambodia trip was the highlight of your journey to Southeast Asia. I did my best to ensure that you had a great time in Cambodia. You were amazing people who made me enjoy myself during the tours and valued my speech on history. Thanks again for coming to Cambodia. Hope to see you again. Yours sincerely, Lao
