I cannot say enough about the 2 day tour we spent with Sopanha in Cambodia!! It was the highlight of our 1 month stay in Asia and I will never forget the sights and sounds I was able to photograph. I am a photographer by trade and our choice of tour guide couldn't have been better. We were met at the airport by his driver Nak (what a polite and friendly man) to take us to our hotel in Siem Reap. We had contacted Sopanha from the reviews on trip advisor and he was very quick to respond to all our messages and queries.
Angkor was of course a must go to location for us but I also wanted to photograph the people of Cambodia, their lifestyle and Sopanha's choices for our tour were exceptional. I loved the fact that he would stop the car at any point that he felt was something that I would like to photograph, and his choices were perfect. He was also more than happy to stop at any point I wanted to in our journey. His love and pride for Cambodia was so apparent as he explained each site and location. We visited rural communities, the floating villages and many sites at Angkor.
At one of the sites in Angkor he noticed several pieces of gum stuck to one of the stone walls,he removed them, such pride and love for these incredible structures. His knowledge was impeccable, friendly, warm, a true gentleman and it was very apparent that he cared deeply whether you were enjoying his tour. He knew all the spots for photos from different vantage points and the back ways in Angkor to avoid the crowds, as well as the time of day that was best.
The 2nd day of our tour Sopanha he took us to an oasis on the edge of a lake for lunch. We were the only people there at this 5 star picnic area under a canopy. The lunch was amazing and we chatted non-stop exchanging stories with each other of our countries and families. Totally delightful.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sopanha and his services while visiting Cambodia. My only wish is that we could have spent a week with him instead of 2 days.
Our sincere thanks Sopanha!!!
