My teenage son and I hired Mr. Sowanna as our tour guide during a recent visit to Siem Reap. He has extensive knowledge of the area (Angkor Wat temples and the surrounding villages), speaks very good English and was able to adapt to our schedule which changed from day to day. The days we spent visiting the Angkor Wat temples were very hot and humid, and the air-conditioned jeep and cold towels and water he provided were welcome relief. Mr. Sowanna is also an excellent photographer, and thanks to him we came away with some great travel photos. I would definitely recommend his services.

First things first; Sorry for the delay in writing this review!

Sowanna is a great guy, very friendly and highly knowledgeable. He was always on time and made great effort to make us feel welcome to his country.

We had 3 days with him and his driver (fully air conditioned 4x4 with cold water and cold towels) and we saw all the major sites of Angkor wat and the floating villages.

He emailed a detailed schedule before we arrived which we tweeked in order to see exactly what we wanted.

We would highly recommend him and definitely use him again when we visit Cambodia the next time.

He's a lovely guy, fairly priced and is more than willing to be your own private professional photographer - we achieved "100% photo" by the end :)

Thanks again, Upesh & Trudie

The best adventure I have ever had! From sunrise to sunset. Sowanna took us around so many interesting places, including good restaurants for lunch. He is also an excellent photographer! Many thanks to his driver too.

I came across Sowana through Tripadvisor because of these good reviews. I was really excited thinking that I might have found a perfect tour guide. I sent him an email providing basic information regarding availability and pricing. I was hoping to gather more information about price range and availability in order to make further decision. His response was rude and condescending. I feel offended by his email especially when he was judging me and implied that I never travel outside my country just from how i wrote my email. After reading his response, I was very disappointed with his attitude and professionalism which is contradicting with all these good reviews he received. If you can't answer a simple question with a positive attitude, you should not be in this type of business. You should make it clear on your website stating what information need to be provided during initial contact.

Needless to say, I do not recommend doing business with Sowana. You can call me sensitive but I really can't imagine my vacation with people with this type of attitude and lack of professionalism.

We booked Sowanna's services for 4 days during May 2014.He was prompt in responding to mails and updates his facebook page daily. During the tour we been around siem reap for 2 days and around Preah Vihear for another 2 days . Sowanna was always prompt, friendly , flexible informative and even suggesting us ways to save money during the tour. He is a passionate photographer .I have noticed him to always have a friendly chat with locals around sites, unlike other guides. As we are vegetarians he always made sure there is a vegetarian food available when we stopped for lunch break

His driver is a polite chap who was always ready with water bottles and towels.

Will definitely use his services if I go back to Cambodia.

If you are planning to visit Siem Reap, the best guide you can get is Sowanna.
He is a 50 year old patriotic man that loves his job as a tour guide.
You can be assured to get beautiful photos as he is anti-photoshop and
expects every photo he take to be the best shot and with original quality.
We had him for 3 full day tours arranged a year in advance without any deposit required.
One of the places we visited was Kbal Spean and being a 50 year old man, he really has
stamina to climb up and down the mountain! After all the visiting, Sowanna will provide
cold towels and cold bottled water for us to drink. Trust me, the weather is so hot even
during the monsoon season, you'll be thankful you have cold towels and water!
Overall, we had a lovely time in Siem Reap because of Sowanna!
Shall recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Siem Reap in future.

For free independent travellers (FITS), having a reliable, competent and professional tour guide can make or break our holiday. Sowanna is all these and MORE !!! He's like an ambassador to his country.
We engaged Sowanna for 5 days of holiday or rather..an adventure in Siem Reap. The itineraries were well planned and delivered on promise, even with lunch breaks back at our hotel for rest !!!
Sowanna was also able to maximise on our donation fund to 2 orphanages by buying rice, etc, through bulk seller rather than through retail outlets. Even his wife shared in our efforts. He also showed his mastery in the attraction by having in-depth knowledge, making our trip really more comfortable than otherwise. He also takes great care of our children and warm up the trip with his humour. He's also a good photographer..composing our picture very well.
In my humble opinion, Sowanna is one of the best guides, if not THE BEST guide in the whole of Siem Reap. Find out for yourself & BELIEVE !!! ^___^ Have a blessed trip to Siem Reap.

We recently spent the day visiting Angkor Watt temples with our guide, Mr Outh Sara. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, promptly collecting us from our hotel and showing us all the delights of this wonderful UNESCO world heritage site. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend him.

If you are looking for a professional tour guide and a photographer, book Sowanna. He is very helpful, very good in time management and the best photographer ever for a tour guide. We enjoyed having him with us for our 3 days trip.

We had booked a 3 day tour with Sowanna and he was on time each day. His knowledge of the various temples was amazing!! He seemed to know all of the best areas for the best photos. When our I-Phone battery was fading, Sowanna took pictures with his own camera and then emailed pictures to us. But most important, when we were trying to find better accommodations, he took the time to make numerous calls and visit many properties to find us the best accommodation. We are truly thankful for the service provided.
We must also be very thankful for our driver, David, ( Sowanna's nephew), for guiding us safely through the streets and highways in and around Siem Reap.
Thank-you for a truly memorable experience
