Luckily a well-known tour guide Vuthy. The organization was very good again, we were picked up on time and arrived at the temple on time for sunrise. Top Tour Guide - Vuthy made a good selection of temples that he thinks are worth seeing. In addition, he always took beautiful pictures of the participants, so that beautiful memories were created. He was always nice, friendly, helpful & we had a very good time with him! Again and again :)

I did the three day work excursion with my husband and son. Our guide Sarak and driver Sombat were a fantastic team. They were knowledgeable, kind and made the whole experience very enjoyable. We felt safe, comfortable and were able to experience Siem Reap on a personal level. I would definitely recommend this company. Cambodia has some pretty amazing people and I feel lucky that I was able to travel here.

Excellent tour. Vuthy aka Mr T is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and he kept the energy levels up throughout the tour. He managed to help all of us get some amazing pictures and his sense of humour was also good. Special shoutout to ‘Adam’ our driver who drove very safely and ensured we were all comfortable and hydrated/cool the entire tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was great! Mr T, our tour guide, was super friendly and allowed us to get a deep insight into Cambodian culture. We first drove to a local market where T got us some delicious local snacks. After that we headed to the Village where even though we did not enjoy a sunset due to cloudy weather we still had a great time. We highly recommend this tour and Mr T as a guide.

Again I had a great experience with this company. Punctuality, kindness and care. I came into contact with a reality I had never seen before. Floating villages are another time/space
