“Great tour and perfect guide”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

We went to Cambodia carrying a number of cameras wanting to get some good shots of Siem Reap and all the Angkor temples. We wrote David and told him we needed a good guide who would walk us through a number of temples and help us get some good pictures away from the crowds. Samsang delivered. He was great. He helped guide us and provided the background on the temples as well as help us crawl all over some stones for great pictures. I loved it all. He was also good about working the schedule around the temples we specifically wanted to see. I would highly recommend!!

“"Excellent experience with David Angkor Guide"”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Just returned from Cambodia where we used David's company to organise our visit to Cambodia. We chose David company because of the positive reviews on Trip advisor and were glad we did. David organised a full day's trip for us in Seam Reap; a private taxi to Phom Penh and a full day's trip in Phom Penh. Organisation was excellent with the guide and driver turning up at our hotel at the time we wanted in Seam Reap. The guide was knowledgeable with good English language skills which made the day enjoyable. Drive to Phom Penh was some six hours long and uneventfull until after we arrived at our hotel in Phom Penh. It was some one and half hours after having arrived at the hotel that I realised that I had left my mobile phone in the car. We managed to get in contact with David who contacted our driver and advised the phone would be delivered back to me within 20 minutes, and it was. The driver delivered the phone back and left before I was even able to thank him. Guide in Phom Penh was equally knowledgeable with good English skills. She was friendly and helpful and we had a thoroughly enjoyable day. All in all we are so glad we chose David to organise our trip to Cambodia and would thoroughly recommend him.

“Amazing tour guide, great memories”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

David was quite an amazing tour guide, and we really enjoyed exploring Angkor Wat with him. We did a sunrise trip, getting up in the wee hour of 5am and spending an entire day, ending around 2-3pm. Yes, we did have to stand in the crowd at the pool for the sunrise (which wasn't all that impressive -- day was too cloudy), but that's part of the experience.

It all got better after that. David took us around the temples and to the back, and many times on the tour we were all alone. It's quite mystical!

His services are probably more expensive than if you hired a tuk tuk, but I cannot imagine exploring Angkor Wat any other way. Having a trustworthy guide pre-arranged saves so much peace of mind.

PS: We also needed a ride to the airport at the very end, and David helped us arranged that in

“Excellent your guide”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

I hired David for 4 days tour in a group of 10. He is very knowledgeable about all the sites at Angkor Wat and history. He is also a great photographer, understanding and helpful man. He always on time and make sure our day's mapped out smoothly by maximizing our times with all the major temples that we wanted to visit together with shopping.

Highly recommend to all!!

“A MUST DO in Siem Reap!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

I cannot say enough about our time with David and his colleague Ngov in Siem Reap. Before arriving, David planned our 3 days perfectly, including incorporating specific things we asked to see and do. Both David and Ngov are incredibly knowledgeable about the complex history of the various wats, as well as Cambodian history; and their english is perfect (they are both quite funny, which was a bonus.) Hiring them as our guides was without a doubt the best decision we made on our trip to Southeast Asia-- if you're looking for a way to truly see and experience the beauty, history, and complexity that is Siem Reap and Cambodia, hire David immediately!
