We originally contacted another guide but he was not available so he highly recommended his 'teacher' instead who happened to be Sopanha. Turned out to be the perfect choice for us! We had Sopanha for 2 full days- 1 for the Angkor area & the other for the further temples of Beng Mealea & our favorite, Banteay Srei. Look no... More

If you are like me, you are reading reviews here for some insight into hiring a guide for Angkor Wat. Look no further! Yes there are many guides, but it matters a great deal that you choose the best one. We are so very happy we chose Sopanha, as he was the best we could have hoped for to see... More

I rarely write reviews on Trip Advisor, but I could not stop myself from writing this one about Sopanha. Sopanha was an excellent tour guide and had so much knowledge of what Angkor has to offer. He structured the guide so that we would avoid large lines and hordes of tourists and made sure that we had good views of... More

Soponha could not have been better as a guide of the Angkor complex and other temples near Siem Reap. His deep knowledge of this place, it's people, and it's history really helped us appreciate it all the more. He took great care of us with bottles of water and towels, smart photo recommendations, and great dining stops. I would highly... More

We had a two day tour. Sopanha was so informative, giving us the history of the temples from their original construction to the most recent restoration projects. He knows where to stand for the best photos, the best places to go eat after the tour, he even reminded us about drinking water and restroom breaks. I've never been so well... More

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
