Tour: Two-Day Siem Reap Temples Tour, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Date: Feb 22/20

Sam did a great job showing us around Siem Reap and explaining the meaning of the temples and the details. We got so much more from the trip because of his explanations. He also did a great job with photography, telling us where the good shots were and taking pictures of our entire group, even using some of the trickier settings on the iphone to get really fun and interesting shots!

Everything about the tour was awesome! Sam is very funny and nice. He tried to make everything perfect for us and he did! He takes the best pictures in the perfect spot. He knows everything about the history of the temples and it is very different to visit a place like this knowing the history and the stories about it, than just walking around. The places he took us to eat were delicious. We enjoyed so much every minute in this lovely country and his lovely kind people.

We had an amazing time with Sam! He was informative and engaging, and incredibly flexible. He was really able to give you a personalised experience of Siem Reap, one you are likely never to forget. I would recommend him to any first time traveller to Cambodia. Best trip we've ever been on!

Vuthy was a poor guide making us watch the surnise from a wall in the carpark while everyone else went into the complex to see. then he dissapeared for breakfast for 40 mins. We spent the remainder of the tour being lectured about carvings in the hot sun while he stood in the shade leaving us little time to explore and view the temples themselves. he was helpful with photos but that is about it. clearly he gives the exact same tour every day whether his guests are happy or not. we are not happy

We had a great experience with Sam in Siem Reap. He's a very knowledgeable guide, proficient in English and overall, Sam took very good care of us. Timing is everything when visiting the highlights, and Sam knows all the right times! He even squeezed in an additional temple visit that wasn't on the original itinerary because we had some spare time before heading back to the airport. He's also an excellent photographer - he pulled some tricks with our camera's I hadn't discovered myself! Thanks again Sam!

Sem is a fabulous tour guide who is very knowledgeable. He told the history of the Angkor palace and temples very well with added humor and was considerate of our pace in the heat providing lots of cold water and icy towels. He stages excellent photo opportunities then takes great photos for you. We have used many tour guides on our travels and he has been the best. We highly recommend Sem to take you on tours in Cambodia.

We had a wonderful day with Sam at the highlights of Ankor! His knowledge about the sites is huge, but he also tells about Cambodia. We had a lot of fun, and lucky that we were at the sites at relatively quiet times. Sam also point out the spots to take beautiful pictures. We highly recommend Sam for your tour around Ankor Wat!

Tour: Six days Phnom Penh & Siem Reap Tours, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Date: Oct 15/19

Sam or Sem speaks excellent English. He has a few flaws I have never experienced in guides I hire before. He does not keep a schedule--so in many emails, we had agreed he would meet me at my Phnom Penh hotel; however, he went to the airport & was super late for us after I called him. He was given items to research in both cities[PP and Siem..] but did nothing and took us to wrong places. He also never was ready when we looked for him after a visit or dinner.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Barry, I'm so sorry to hear that my tour services did not reach your satisfaction. Well, please give me an opportunity to answer to your complains. I'm always flexible to your tour requirements. You always changed the tour itinerary frequently so that I just followed your latest change. In the booking form, the meeting location is to pick up at the airport. No latest updated. I always took you to the places that you wanted to. But some places the car can not reach. I was always on time and ready

It was a very informative private tour because we have with us an experienced tour guide, Sam. We got to appreciate even more the world class heritage of Angkor Wat and the other temples we visited. He gave us more time to explore every spot we visited. He pretty much knows where exactly to take pictures to get an awesome perspective. We get a bonus because he gave us time to have some chat over coffee at NOIR coffee shop where we got to know him a little better.

When you scroll through the comments of people saying nice things, know that Sem is above all of that. He does know the history in an exhaustive way; he can talk about details of every place visited as much as you would like. He is also comfortable giving that a break and having fun. His laugh is infectious and I would hire him again just because we had such a great time-- beyond the amazing places that we visited. he thought ahead and kept a perfect rhythm of the day. very highly recommended!!!

Sam is an exceptional guide. In addition to being very knowledgeable on the Angkor temples and history, he provided a wealth of insight on the local community and made excellent recommendations for restaurants and local places to visit. Sam was prompt, courteous, and knew the best picture spots / angles at each of the temples. He constantly checked to make sure I was having a good time. I highly recommend him!!

Of all the tour guides we had during our travel, Sam was definitely one of the very best! Not only he was very knowledgable, but he was very patience, funny, and attentive. He provided a very detail history of the sites and made the history more entertaining and fun. He took his time and even helped my elderly mother climbed the stairs at Angkor Wat all the way to the top. He provided unlimited cold water and towels, which made the hot day tolerable. Overall, amazing tour guide and we highly recommend!

My wife and I went on Sam's two day tour of the temples and Tonle Sap. Sam speaks excellent English and provided a fantastic history of Cambodia and we learned a lot about the ancient and modern Country. Two days of touring is quite tiring in the heat so we opted to have a day's rest in between and Sam was very accommodating with that. He also provided lots of ice cold water and cold towels for us and was very helpful in taking many excellent photos of us in great spots. You should use Sam for your tour!
