Kim is the guide you want. Period. I spent 5 days with Kim and she was the highlight of the 5 weeks I spent in Southeast Asia. Forget the facts that her English is perfect and her knowledge of the region is boundless. Forget that she is organized, friendly and easy to talk to. What's most important is that Kim is just an amazing person. Her history, her dedication to the community, her desire to make your trip a memorable one, are all a part of what makes her incredible. I have had LOTS of tour guides in my travels. But she is the only one who I will keep in contact with and who made me want to be a better person. I know that sounds strange or corny, but it's true. Beyond all that, the trip itself was outstanding. Of course we did the obligatory tourist sites (Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, etc.), but she also took me to places where there were no (or few) tourists and where she could teach me about the history of Cambodia while sitting under a tree and gazing at a 1000 year old temple. We had a picnic by a lake and took motorbikes to hidden temples. It was an experience I will never forget. And i have Kim to thank for it all. So stop looking for a tour guide and contact Kim now. I promise you will be happy you did!

I cannot say enough kind words about Kim. As for the tour itself, Kim is full of knowledge that she shares in perfect English. We were communicated with regularly so we knew what to expect, how to dress and what to bring. We were picked up in an comfortable van with a very nice driver (which is an added bonus of air conditioning and a safe place to leave your bags while you walk around). She recomended probably the best dish of food I have ever had (Amok!) while we stopped for lunch and gave us tips to help us while we were touring by ourselves at other times. She has a vast knowledge of the temples and surrounding areas that she freely shares and is happy to answer any questions you may have. She is very knowledgeable about the area which was so excellent because we got too see so much in such a short time and all while avoiding the crowds. She was generous enough to take pictures of our group, point out historical landmarks as well as modern day "movie" iconic scenes and she was able to give so many detailed facts that really painted a lovely picture of the past. As for Kim herself, she is a driven and intelligent woman. She speaks English exceptionally, which was very helpful for me and my travel companions. She has friends around the world, and when you meet her you will know why. She is very pleasant and kind and shares her experiences to enrich your visit. I highly recommend this tour company as well as the Made In Cambodia Market for some really great handmade items made directly from the local residents.

Kim was recommended to us by an acquaintance. Our goal as a group was to see all the ruins that Siem Reap offered. What we received was an in-depth history of every location. Kim provided facts, personal stories, and answered all our questions. Aside from all this, she assisted us by taking group photos so that we may all be in the pictures. This day tour enhanced an already astonishing area full of history and culture. I cannot only highly recommend but think it mandatory to ingest the full breadth of what Siem Reap has to offer. Thank you, Kim. PS-we had an air-conditioned van (highly recommended) and stopped off for lunch by restaurant local to Angkor Wat.

We were recommend to contact Kim by friends who recently visited Siem Reap and so lucky we did. Kim has an amazing knowledge of Khmer history. She was able to fit so many sites into our 2 day visit and knows all the best places for viewing the incredible temples of the Angkor complex. A comfy air-conditioned van with a lovely driver and a couple of great places for lunch. Our group of 4 found Kim so welcoming and a wonderful guide for our 2 days. Kim is very organised so be prepared for long days and lots of walking if you really want to make the most of your visit to Angkor with Kim. Highly recommended!

Kimrom made our visit to the vast temple complex a pleasure. Amazing knowledge and insight into the culture and history of the Khmer empire. What made the tour exceptional was Kim's knowledge of the hidden quiet corners and remote entrances, that allowed us to avoid a lot of the enormous crowds. If you are lucky enough to catch the very busy Kimrom, you are guaranteed an incredible visit to Angkor.
