“An Amazing Guide in an Amazing Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Our tour guide, Chhaya, totally lived up to his great reviews. He spent two days with my husband, me, and our adult daughter, and structured a great tour to help us maximize our limited time. Despite a rainy half-day, he was quick to revamp our itinerary so that we still had a great time. We would recommend his services to anyone visitnf Siem Reap!

“Great tour. Great guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We booked a 2 day temple tour with Chhaya and would have been lost without this guidance and depth of knowledge. Chhaya is a very kind, intelligent and funny man, he has an incredible depth of knowledge that meant we really got the most out of the significance of Angkor Wat and surrounding temples. Without Chhaya pointing out different carvings and inscription we would have not only missed them physically but more importantly missed the historical and cultural significance behind them.

While Angkor Wat was certainly our highlight, Chhaya also took us to a lot of other temples within the complex, both the main attractions and also much smaller temples off the beaten track which was incredibly peaceful. On our second day we explored some of the Cambodian country side to reach further outlying temples which was a fantastic opportunity to see how the rural areas operate.

Chhaya should be commended on his punctuality- he always arrived early, his vast knowledge of the temples and Cambodia, good English and his ability to tailor the tour as we progressed to our interests. Throughout our journey, at every stop we were presented with a new drink bottle and wet towered to refresh. We never felt rushed around and were surprised at the ground we covered in 2 days. We certainly would not have achieved this had we attempted it ourselves. Most impressive was that we always managed to arrive at temples before the crowds and leave just as others where piling in for the day. He has his own "tracks" around each temple which means you generally avoid big crowds and as a result get great photos without having to crop other people's heads out. Even at Angkor Wat sunrise he helped us time the lighting right to get some wonderful shots and was always offering advice on the best angle to capture the temples architecture.

Not only do we recommend Chhaya as your temple guide but next time we return to Cambodia we will certainly be enlisting his assistance again.

“Wonderful Guide at City of Wonder!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Our trip to Siem Reap City was a wonderful experienced! We do had a good sunny weather although we are expecting a rainy one. In organizing our trip we booked the service of Mr. Chhaya Tes, he is really prompt and patient in answering our e-mail inquiries. But there was a last minute changed because of his health condition and recommended the service of Mao Chenla. At first, we were hesitant because we are expecting Chhaya and we already read his good reviews, but he assures us that he will give us a professional and an experienced tour guide. We had a great time during our stay with Chenla as our guide. He is very professional always on time and knowledgeable. He really knows the way around and made changes in our scheduled itinerary to avoid the crowd if he knew there will be a large group of tourist in the area, but he made sure that we covered all the great places to see. He also a great photographer and knows the great spots for photograph. He is sensitive to the needs of our group and allows flexibility in the schedule. Although we made some research and inquiries on places to visit in Siem Reap surely we will not cover all those places without the guidance of Chenla. We will definitely recommend his service to anyone looking for guide.

Big thank you to Soy Dy, He is a lovely man. We did a 2 day tour, he was very knowledgeable and made our experience the best it could be as he had organised our tour in such a way we avoided the busiest times and hoards of tourists. We were so in awe of the temples, the history, the area is truly magical.

The tour was really great.

We did a two person tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, polite, he always adjusted the tours to cater to our needs, he spoke English very well and he was always early. Being early was a nice surprise.
Thanks to our tour guide We were very happy with his companion. I forgotten his name but will post his picture soon.

Thank you!
