“Poan is the perfect guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

My first trip to Cambodia was a few years ago and toured around the Siem Reap area and Poan was an amazing guide, the best I've ever had. He is genuinely friendly and is very professional. I've toured other areas of Cambodia on subsequent trips and again Poan made all the arrangements and we had a great time. He knowledge is so complete and adds many insights to the trip by explaining about Khmer history and culture.
I've had the opportunity to travel to many countries and had many guides throughout my years of traveling. Poan is the best there is!

“Sophoan is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We found sophoan online somehow and had no idea what to expect. Her arranged everything from us from bangkok- drive to the border, drove us to siem reap, drive back. He took us to Angkor wat and was beyond knowledgeable about everything. It was incredibly hot that day and he noticed we were getting exhausted so he even drove us around to tell us about the temples in his air conditioning. We were then looking for a specific restaurant he'd never heard of- sophoan drove us up and down the street to find it, asking anyone if they knew where it was.
Really the nicest guy and best tour guide. We couldn't have been luckier than finding sophoan.

“Siem reap with Sophoan Rath (POAN) - Wonderful !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Our friends recommended Poan as a guide for 2 ½ days in Siem Reap. It was the best thing we could realized. He sent us a perfect schedule for the tour. He is a very smart, sensitive and a very special man.
Talking with him we felt how the Cambodia is proud of the Kmehr Civilization very old and important for more than thousand years.
We advised everyone that want to know Cambodia as we did to contact Poan as a guide.

“Great trip with Poan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We heard about Poan from a colleague and we are glad that we had him as our guide for Siem Reap. Poan is very knowledgeable, nice, and patient. My husband and I were traveling with my parents-in-law. Poan was very nice and patient when my parents-in-law needed to rest, when we asked a lot of questions and when we discussed about the next days' trip. He suggested a very good itinerary and we got to see most of the famous temples. When we had to cancel our last day's trip last minute because my parents-in-law were too tired, Poan was still very nice to us. The drive Tuna was a nice guy too, funny and helpful. They both made sure that we had enough cool water and umbrellas during the hotness. We strongly recommend Poan and Tuna!

“Great tour of Angkor Wat temples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We booked a day tour of the Angkor Wat area with Sophoan having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We didn't have much time in Siem Reap but the tour packed a lot into the day we had available. Sophoan is incredibly knowledgeable and was willing to answer all of the questions we asked, regardless of how silly they were. He was willing to share his personal experiences of living in Cambodia during some of the darker periods of its history which was very moving.

We appreciated the structuring of the tour in such a way as to avoid the big tour parties which really enhanced our experience of the temples. Sophoan pointed out all of the best vantage points to take photos from, including where to stand to appear to be nose to nose with the Buddha statue. Overall we just had so much fun on the tour with Sophoan and really appreciated his sense of humour. The temples themselves were incredibly beautiful and diverse and the day was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday.

Sophoan also arranged our transfer from Siem Reap to Ko Chang in Thailand which we were very happy we had arranged in advance as the Thai border crossing is pretty confusing and you need to change vehicles. We were met by a guide where our driver dropped us at the border who walked us across the border and ensured we knew what we were doing. The Thai leg of the journey was straight forward and we appreciated the driver's help getting us to the ferry.
