It was our great pleasure to have Som as our tour guide and Tra as our driver for a 2-day private Angkor tour. Som is a knowledgeable, kind, respectful, honest and hard-working tour guide. We have no regrets and urge anyone reading this to take the leap of faith!

We started off at 4:40am on the first day for the Angkor Wat sunrise. From the get go, we could tell Som is passionate about his country, its culture, and its people. He never failed to surprise us with his knowledge of Cambodia, and particular the history of Angkor Wat and the other temples we visited.

Although it was a bit cloudy in the run-up to sunrise, we were lucky to have a clear view of the sun in the end, and took many pictures. Som is a fantastic photographer himself, and took many beautiful and professional pictures of us. We were very impressed!

For the rest of the first day, we visited temples including Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, Bayon (Som’s favourite), Baphuon, and after a quick lunch, we returned to Angkor Wat in the afternoon (when it is less crowded).

The experience would not have been the same without Som leading us and telling us stories about the temples, explaining the architecture, and digging into the history of it all.

The benefits of having a private tour is that you can tweak the itinerary as you like. After discussing with the operator, we decided to visit 3 more temples on the next day, after we visited the floating village.

Every time we returned to the air-conditioned car, we were greeted with iced towels and iced water. At the end of the tour, we were also given small gifts made by the operator’s wife, and a very friendly phone call from the operator asking us about our tour. Som even bought us some local jackfruit to try (which I’ve never tried before!).

The private tour is well worth it, and it is highly recommended.

Som, hope you inspire your niece and nephew to become as successful as you, and best of luck in all of your future endeavours! You definitely inspired us :)

Dear Barry W,

It is a wonderful inspired review and a must-read we would like to thank you very much for your time. As you know it is one of charity marketing which means after your trip you still take your time to help us by reviewing or feedback your trip, so other guests will read review and it makes us more jobs. Very appreciated Sir.

Besides we have temple tours we have other extended tours such academy tours, culture tours, cycling tours which extend your trip up to 12 days in Cambodia and you absolutely spend less than thousand bucks.

Best respect,
Bob

We went on the sunrise tour of Angkor Wat with Som. He picked us up with a driver in an air conditioned car and helped us buy our park tickets. He showed us exactly where to go to take the best pictures. He was like a personal professional photographer! His English is very good and he provided us with interesting information. We would definitely recommend Som.

We had the pleasure of having Ssom as our guide on a 3 day trip around Siem Reap. Our family is 2 adults and 2 children and we had a great time. There was time to see the temples but also to have a chat about Cambodia and learn a lot about local stuff and visit the more hidden places. Thank you so much, we would recommend you to friends and family any time!

It was really great to visit Cambodia.
There were much things I've seen there.. Especially the attractions such as Angkor Wat..besides that, I also discovered and learnt more about the culture and ways of life in Cambodia. If you like to learn and see more about historical stuffs. This will be a great place to explore. There are many temples in this country. You may pray if you like to. The transportation in this country is quite convenient. We may get tuk tuk, van, bicycle, and even free ride at certain place.
And most importantly, special thanks to our tour guide, Som... He is so friendly and always look after our needs. He is a great tour guide as he has his knowledge of Cambodia at his finger tips. We can ask anything about Cambodia and he has definitely enlightened me with his knowledge. My friends and I had a great time with Som and he's always keen to help if we need anything.
Last but not least, thanks to our driver, Mr. Lee, for sending us here and there.
It was indeed a memorable trip for me.

The guide and the tour were extremely amazing and indeed deserved a special thanks. We had two great days with them there with remarkable experiences at different places and temples with picturesque scenery and view.

Our tourist guide, Som is such a friendly, outgoing and warm tourist guide. And for that, he is truly highly recommendable!

Many thanks again and I recommend Blue Frog Angkor Tour to everyone!
