We had a great 4 days tour with Sopanha, which had been recommended to us for his great professionalism. He's an incredible guide, with bachelors degree in history, knowing all the details of each temple of this huge site. Thanks to him we enjoyed very much our visits, and could discover the splendors of Angkor. We appreciated in particular the... More

If you want an experience along with an amazing, historically accurate discourse this is the guide to hire. He is amazing, on time, and can manage the crowds with ease. The photos from our trip would have been mediocre without his suggestions and expert skills. The knowldge he imparted to us was phenomenal and made our experience in Siem Reap... More

I booked Sopanha for a four-day tour for my family. We communicated quite a bit beforehand, and he was very knowledgeable and accommodating in helping to plan a fairly customized itinerary. Overall my whole family was pleased with the range of sights and activities in our tour. The trips out to Beng Melea and Kulen Mountain were definitely worth the... More

Before I start this review I just wanted to say that I'm sure anyone looking at Tripadvisor for a Angkor tour guide knows there are many and the options can be quite overwhelming. If you are intent on a particular guide do book well in advance otherwise you will get moved around from guide to guide (as it happened to... More

Yous is a wonderful fella. Booked him for two days and we toured like crazy. Always willing to go the extra mile to tell you the story of the temples, religions intermixing, the times of Khmer Rouge and to explain and assist in conversations with elderly cambodians. He knows all the perfect photo spots and times of the big tours... More

My husband and I just spent a lovely Christmas week in Siem Reap with our three adult daughters. Sopanha was recommended to me by a friend who took his tour previously and were very happy, so I contacted him in advance. I have life-threatening food allergies, as does one of my daughters, and was worried about having a guide who... More

I don't usually write reviews but I will make an exception for Sopanha, he was that good. If you want a guide who knows everyone and knows Cambodia like the back of his hand use Sopanha. If you want a guide with a history degree who is truly passionate about his his subject and his country, use Sopanha. If you... More

Sopanha is an incredible man. My husband and I felt so lucky to have him as our guide in Siem Reap in mid-November, where he took us not only to the main sights on our list, but to tucked away gems we didn't even know about - and which weren't overrun with tourists!! His enthusiasm and evident love for his... More

I booked Sophana many months prior to my trip, and together wer worked out a great 4-day itinerary to explore the temples of Angkor, including airport pick-up and drop-off. On arrival at Siem Reap I was met by Sophana, who it turns out was recovering from a really nasty car crash a few days earlier. The circumstances of his crash... More

Yous is an amazing tour guide, a fountain of knowledge, someone who gives his all for his customers.. Those that have used Yous would say the same thing..meeting some of his family and hearing his life story from the time of Pol Pot..words cannot describe the man that we now consider family... Google him, need I say more. Yous needs... More
