Myself and three other adults recently visited Cambodia. We used the services of Thy Ing our guide from Siem Reap Angkor Private Tours. We were collected from Phnom Penh airport and transferred a short distance to our hotel to drop off our luggage before visiting Choeung Ek (The Killing Fields), The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and The Royal Palace. Thy gave us an excellent insight into each of these places and he was very knowledgeable on the history of each one. He returned us to our hotel that evening and arranged to pick us up the next morning for our drive to Siem Reap. On the way there we stopped at Skuon otherwise known as’ tarantula village’ where we were able to see and sample the local delicacy fried tarantula! We also visited a typical Cambodian village and were taken to see a spectacular ancient bridge before being dropped off at our hotel in Siem Reap.
The next 3 days Thy drove us to various places including Angkor Wat (The largest religious monument in the world), Angkor Tom, Bayon Temple of smiling faces, Ta Prohm Temple (Where the film Tomb Raider was made) plus some other amazing temples. We also visited a mountain temple and had a blessing from one of the monks. Thy also took us to Kompong Phluk the ‘floating village’ accessed by boat to see how people live in houses above the water. A very interesting and must see village. We were sad to leave Cambodia and thanks to Thy, felt we had a very memorable stay.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay in Cambodia and more than pleased with our guide Thy who showed us the excellent places in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. His knowledge of all the places and their history is excellent. He speaks very good English, he is very friendly, his driving is excellent and we always felt very safe with him. His pricing is also excellent.
We would highly recommend using Thy as a guide and when we return to visit Cambodia we will be using him again. Thank you Thy for your excellent service we have very fond memories and will remember the fantastic and interesting places you showed us.
