You will need a good guide in Siem Reap to truely enjoy the place. We were lucky to have Sorm as our guide. He was a monk previously, studied in Canada and spoke excellent English. Not only was he able to explain and bring life to the ancient architecture, in his selfless way, we are inspired to do more and help some of the less fortunate. This in fact brings great joy to me and make this trip ever more unforgetable.

It was my second time in Cambodia. My travel-agent in Switzerland organized this private tour. In Siem Riep until Battambang (4 days) my guide was Mr. Sorm Son. Son has a profund knowledge about culture, history and the actual situation of his country. We had very intersting conversations. He is friendly and always helpful. I learned a lot about Cambodias past and present. So I can recommend Son very much for your next tour. He speaks very good english. Son ist educated and works efficient. I wish Son success for what he is doing.

My girlfriend and I booked a three day trip with Sorm. According to Sorm's family issue, he can just guide us at the first day morning. However, we do appreciate his guiding! He is very knowledgeable about the history of Cambodia. At the first morning, Sorm pick us early enough to secure us a front seat view and a wonderful spot to see the sun rising. I have to say although we missed the sunrise(the weather condition was not good), I do enjoy the story which Sorm shared with us in that morning. Like many others, we found Son via Trip Advisor and we hope more people can enjoy Sorm's excellent guiding. I highly recommend booking Sorm Son to guide your Angkor adventure!

I contacted Sorm Son long before arriving in Siem Reap to discuss his availability for the period we would be in Siem Reap. Based on our schedule of 2 1/2 days, he proposed an itinerary to guide us around Angkor, Bayon, Taphrom, Banteay Srey, Beng Mealea, Kampong Pluk floating village, Rolous group, old market, Artisan Center for Carving stone, wood, Silver and Silk products. Despite being very knowledgeable about the area, he speaks very good English and knows the best photo spots as well as the best way to avoid the crowds in the temples. He also arranged transport for the tour. It was a great experience.
