We booked Son last minute because we had problems with our first guide. And I'm glad we switched, because we had a great time with him. These are the reasons why you should book with Son:

1) Very affordable. His rates are the usual tour rates - $25 for the guide, $25 for the driver/car. I've seen a few guides that had higher rates. It was worth it, because you get 'extras'.

2) Extras - We had 'unlimited' bottled water and cold towelletes throughout the tours.

3) Very thoughtful - My friend had a tough time dealing with the heat on our first day, even with our water and sunblock and shawls. Son brought umbrellas for us on our second day, and it really helped us during noon time.

4) Very flexible - We were never in a hurry, he followed our pace throughout.

5) Very knowledgeable - He explained the background and history of all the temples we went to. He knew his stuff! It wasn't just a spiel, because we had questions, and he was able to answer them. His english was good though I have to admit that there were some words we didn't understand right away.

6) Photos - He knew the best spots for photos! He would tell us the good spots, and would wait for us to take our photos. He took good photos too, he knew how to include the temples in the background.

7) Friendly and funny - Son has a funny laugh, and it was such a pleasant experience going around with him. Admittedly, he had some jokes that we didn't understand, but hearing his laugh would make us smile.

I highly recommend Son - good people deserve to do well!

Mr Son was great. He is very flexible and accomodating to your needs. He has a really nice car (Toyota LandCruiser) to take you comfortably to the temples. Unfortunately my wife got really sick during the trip, and Mr Son helped us find a very good hospital to take care of my wife. Terrific guide - He speaks English and Spanish very well.

This is our first visit to Cambodia and ancient city of Siem Reap. We have a engaged Son for a 4 days tour. Here are some comments on this attraction with Mr Son Day tours.

1) Detailed and customise itinerary. We have researched into several attractions in Siem Reap before requested Son to customise into our schedules. Son has eagerly arranged and provided detailed itinerary to customise to our needs.

2) Photo taking. We are always anxious to find a location to take a the best pictures and always request for a good spot to be taken. Son will provide good advice on the photo taking locations and willingly in helping to take photos for us.

3) Detail explanation on history. It is a very educational tour and with Son's explanation, he has provided detailed explanation like the story behind each stone cravings, history and differences of each temples and cultural history of the temples and the people.

4) Excellent driver services. With a hot day in walking around the beautiful temples, we are always eager to have a cold towel and drinks. Son's brother (the driver), provides excellent services such as providing towels and drinks on every occasion. We are very much well taken care.

5) Overall experience. With Son Day tour, it is always enjoyable and well taken care by him and his brother. With his friendly and humorous character, we feel at ease when traveling around. we liked the part where Son will avoid crowded periods during the each visits. This helps us to allow us to get have sufficient time in appreciating the attractions.

My partner and I engaged Son for a 2 day tour of ancient Siem Reap. It was a very educational tour, enlightened by stories of the buddhist-hindu Cambodian beliefs, and explanations about the differences in stone carvings. We watched the sunrise at Angkor Wat and he scheduled the day to avoid too many tourists. Our favorite places were Beng Melea and Banteay Srei. We climbed through temple ruins in the jungle. It was a great experience and we were very well taken care of. Son took us around on a 4wdrive, stocked with cold water and towels. Perfect for the hot weather!

Son is also great at pointing out great photo taking spots for that perfect touristy shot so just ask.

This was our first adventure into Cambodia and we were looking for some personalised service. We contacted and arranged for Son to look after us prior to arriving, based on our web research. Son provided us with suggestions to fit in with the wishes that we had sent to him. Now that this visit is over, we are able to highly recommend Son and his team for an excellent job done in awesome style. Every arrangement was on time and perfectly executed. Son is a very affable man, most welcoming, super helpful and has a great amount of knowledge and passion for the area around Siem Reap including all of the temple attractions. As our tour evolved Son provided a flexibility that could not be given with a large group and we were able to modify our adventures to suit which allowed us to include things that we had not arrange prior. Son provided us with an unforgettable experience which has whetted our appetite to return to Cambodia.
