Mr. Sorm Son was the best tour guide my sister and I could have asked for on our recent visit to Cambodia. We spent 3 days with Son and his driver and visited not only the must-see temples, but also some temples not quite as popular with tourists, but equal in beauty and rich history. Son was extremely knowledgeable about the history and significance of all the temples and sites we visited- each temple has its own story! We were picked up every morning at our hotel (he was always on time) and TRUST ME, the air-conditioned car and cold towels make the world of a difference in Cambodia's heat & humidity. Son also made sure we knew the fair prices when we went shopping and recommended some great restaurants and cultural dance shows after our temple tours. He even made reservations for us at the cultural dance show and we had the best seat in the house! What really touched me was when he offered to climb the very steep steps at Angor Wat to take photos for us since we're both petrified of heights. He didn't want us to miss out!! He knows all the good photo spots and made sure to point them out to us and offer to take pics of us. We allowed us the flexibility to explore at our own pace if we liked one temple more than others. Son even bought us ointment to treat our mosquito bites. Son made our experience in Cambodia a truly unique, once-in-a-lifetime adventure! We felt that we were able to see and experience the best of what Cambodia has to offer in the limited amount of time we were there. He's incredibly thoughtful and we enjoyed really enjoyed our tour with him!! Like many others, we found Son via Trip Advisor and we couldn't be happier with our time spent with him :)
