“The Only Way To See Siem Reap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

My wife and I found out about Sam from our Doctor who had hired Sam as a tour guide several years ago during a visit to Cambodia. Setting up everything with Sam ahead of time was a breeze and when we arrived in Siem Reap he was there to pick us up at the airport. The agenda Sam devised for us was incredible; we spent two days touring the temples and our guide Rani could not have been better explaining all the history behind the various places we went to visit. The highlights included eating some amazing amok, taking a boat tour of the Tonle Sap, and hearing about the extensive history of the Khmer Empire from our guide Rani. Like most first time visitors to Siem Reap we had no idea that the temples at Angkor Wat are just the tip of the iceberg. Angkor Thom, Banteay Srei and the Bayon were breath taking and we would never have been able to see as much with such ease had we not booked ahead of time with Sam. If you are planning on visiting Siem Reap and want to see as much as you can with an experienced guide Sam is the only way to go.

“Breath taking sights, fun and trustworthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We spent one day with Sam seeing the temples of Siem Reap.
We cannot fault Sam or the service for anything after yesterday's experience.
Not only was he punctual, he was easy to contact via email before his service. His English is very easy to understand and his knowledge of the area and its history is like an encyclopedia. There was nothing he could not answer.
His honesty was shown when we left our mobile phone in his car and he returned it after we were dropped off.
Anything he recommends you do is worth it. He also knows where to have the perfect pictures and he took some amazing shots of the 2 of us throughout the temples. Sam is open to suggestions and was happy to sit and wait when we decided to look around a little more, he was never pushy or rushed us at all. Sam also has the experience to avoid the crowds without missing any of the sites which was appreciated, sometimes it felt like we had the temples to ourselves.

All in all, we highly recommend using Sam for your tour guide whilst in Siem Reap and we will most definitely be recommending Sam to our friends and family.

and to Sam, just remember mate, it's "Fair Dinkum".

“Temple tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I had a very nice day with Sam Pho and my guide, Mr.Chet. They picked me up at my hotel and took me to tour the major temples in Siem Reap, planning the roster to avoid the major tourist crunches at the various temples. Mr. Chet was very sweet and informative, and it was a very nice day, with a lunch at a genuine Khmer restaurant.

Sam was both informative and friendly and helped us with everything we needed!! I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the Siem Reap area. Sam also spoke very clear English and was able to communicate to the locals easily for us.

“Siem Reap Feb 1-3,2013 Tour Tanmay Panigrahi.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I emailed Sam Pho about a month or so before the proposed tour.Little disappointed to find a replacement(Mr Rany) but it turned out to be a blessing.He was very down to earth and accommodating and an excellent photographer to boot.It was a great experience!
Some earlier remarks about the restaurants that the tour guides take you to are true but the food has been awesome everywhere!
Cars are a little beaten down,water bottles could be better.Overall small things in return for a great experience!
Mr Rany worked really hard in spite of a sick daughter on the 2nd day.Hats off to that.
