Review of: Tour guide
We had a wonderful two-day tour with Mr. Son to the major temples, as well as to Baeng Mealea. Mr. Son was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, providing us with a lot of great history and pointing out aspects and details that would have gone unnoticed or not properly understood had we toured on our own (which we have previously). Everything was well organized and we had a great time, even with rain on the first day. I would highly recommend Mr. Son as a guide and we hope to return to tour some of the other temples with him in the future.

Review of: Tour guide
We booked a 1 day trip with Son from 830am till sundown including a tuk-tuk and all went very well. Son impressed us with deep knowledge of the history and was very easy to handle. His English is very good and conversation always smooth. This guide is definitely worth every $. Can strongly recommend a tour with him.

Review of: Tour guide
We had an Angkor Wat Tour with Son, and it turned out amazing! He was very punctual and extremely knowledgeable about Angkor ruins and political situations going around Cambodia. Our English weren't good enough that we couldn't understand everything that he explained, but what I can say is that he's very good at English, and this tour made our trip to Siem Reap much richer. He knows very nice photo spots and brilliant photography tricks. Also, he knows how to guide us to those ruins while avoiding tourist crowds. Above all things, I was so impressed by the fact that he runs volunteer school in his community and offers English education to students for free. He truely believes in the power of education and is definitely doing an amazing job to make the future of Cambodia brighter:)
