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

Our hotel arranged a full day tour with guide. He was at the hotel before we finished breakfast ahead of time. The morning we did the great temples of Angkor. All the way Yous like an excited child telling us about the treasures we would see. The sites of Angkor were spectacular and our guide was a wealth of information,... More

We toured with Sopanha for 2 and a half days around the Angkor temples. Although we had only booked a driver for our half day at Kampong Phluk, Sopanha arrived as our driver and offered to be our guide as well, free of charge. He ended up being our driver and guide for the subsequent two days, which may have... More

We utilized Sopanha's services for 3 days. He picked us up at the airport and brought us to our hotel. Our tour started the next day and he did a great job in explaining what we were seeing. We learned so much more than if we had gone on our own. He was patient in explaining the significance of each... More

Mr Sopanha is knowledgeable and personable. We were delighted with our two day tour of the temples and an additional day we spent seeing the waterfalls at Kulen Mountain. Hearing about Sopanha's personal experiences with the Khmer Rouge were particularly moving for me. A wonderful person, funny and inspiring.

Day two we did several of the close in temples, the highlights. We really liked Sopanha as a person and a guide, well worth the expense. I learned... More

Yous was recommended to us by our hotel (Anantara Siem Reap) and is a former teacher who also trains future guides and is retained by National Geographic for their tours of Angkor. He takes great pride in explaining the history of Angkor, the kings, and construction processes of the temples - he really "brought to life" what we were seeing.... More
