“Excellent and knowledgable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

English speaking guide with private air conditioned car. We went very very early to Angkor Wat and managed to avoid the crowds at all the temples, even the popular ones as he knew when the best time to visit was. Because of this we got some amazing photos and had a very knowledgable private tour.

“Great guide to see siem reap with”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Just a couple of days before my trip to Siem Reap I decided to engage a guide before reaching there so that we could maximise our short trip . After reading a couple of excellent reviews about Mara Long on the net I contacted him via mail . When I called him up a couple of hours later, he was familiar with my itinerary and requirement and it took all of couple of minutes to finalise everything. We spent two days with him seeing the major sites, learning about Cambodian history and shopping. He was very punctual,informative and flexible to accommodate all our requests. I would recommend his tour guide services without hesitation .

“Great guide, fantastic with children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

A friend recommended Mara to us, as he had been great with her young family when they had visited Siem Reap. We were not disappointed as Mara's English was great, he provided us with lots of information (more about Cambodia and Cambodian life than about temples) and he was fantastic with our little boy, which meant that we were free to really enjoy the temples. We also thought that our driver Sarit was great. We thought that Mara and Sarit were so great that we booked an extra unplanned day.
 
Additionally, we highly recommend asking Mara to help you get involved by visiting and donating supplies to one of the many organizations where some great Cambodians are helping their community recover from years of conflict.

“Great guide, and flexible, and tailoring to your needs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Mara Long books tours of the Angkor Wat and surrounding temples for himself and other guides. He is quick to respond, but super friendly and very reasonably priced. I He is a knowledgeable guide, and very conscientious, of his audience. I We asked many questions more about the state and region more than the temples and he was great with it. I Also, he typically does a two or three day tour of the Site but accommodated my wife and I with a single day highlights tour.

Please, no if you are looking to secure a guide in advance, and look Mara up. I You won't be disappointed.

“Thiv Jack, the perfect private tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We could not have been more fortunate than having Thiv Jack for our guide on August 15-16. Being in our late 70s, we arrange for our own guide where possible, rather than get involved with tour groups, and we asked our small hotel to arrange a personal guide for our two days in Siem Reap. He was marvellous: apart from the facts and stories you’d expect every guide to know, Jack had a delightful sense of humour. He knew exactly where to go, and when; he seemed to sense how much energy we had left and tailored our pathway and his pace perfectly. In two days, Jack took us through Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, the floating village on the river down to Tonlé Sap and helped Molly shop for a necklace. We’ve enjoyed the benefit of guides in several countries and we never had better.
