We just finished a sunrise day tour with Sam's company. From start to finish this tour was super easy to organise. We were greeted by our driver and knowledgeable tour guide Phanna. He was full of great historical facts about the angkor Wat complex and Cambodia, all complete with a great sense of humour! What we really appreciated was his effort to take us to less crowded spots and the best photo op spots. I don't think we've ever had such nice photos of ourselves and it definitely beat our selfie stick awkward photos! If the tour wasn't fantastic enough with all of that, we were given an ice cold bottle of water and a cold towel that smelled refreshingly of menthol to cool us down after being in the sun! Much appreciated by my husband and I. I would definitely recommend this company for value for money and a fantastic tour. For the full package ask for Phanna!

Votha was super knowledgable and clearly very familiar with the area. While I'm sure he's given the same tour many times, he was very enthusiastic and it felt like he was sharing the information with us for the first time.

He was on time to pick us up, spoke great English, and clearly knew the other guides in the area. While we were picking up our tickets, he was strategizing with the other waiting guides to figure out how to get us to see all of the various temples while minimizing our waiting times. We climbed the summit inside Angkor Wat without waiting in line, and saw the Bayon temple with hardly anyone else there. He timed it perfectly so we didn't wait to have lunch either, and in almost every case, as we were leaving an area, huge crowds were coming in and having to wait a long time to see the same thing.

I'd definitely recommend these folks to anyone going to Siem Reap. Votha has an awesome/enthusiastic attitude, and well equipped, on time, with a comfortable car, and great English.

We could not have asked for better hosts in Cambodia than our guide Sophal (pronunced Paul for westerners) and driver Tavan. We were on a time constraint and couldn't see as many things as we would have liked but these two made it feel like we didn't miss a thing - we will be back for the other 1k temples.

Phal and Tavan greeted us at the airport with a prompt pick up then directly to our first temple. My husband asks a million questions about every little thing there is to learn about a culture - Phal did not let us down once. The amount of knowledge we gained from him in one day will never be forgotten.

We managed 5 temples - his understanding of the best times to visit and which routes to take within the temple are why we could get so much done. I never once felt rushed, Phal took amazing pictures within each temple for us and always let us go at our own pace. He pointed out some great spots I could take scenic pictures with my camera as well.

Our objective was to get in as much as possible and this was exactly what we received. But if we wanted to take it slower they would've accommodated that for us too.

Truly thankful for this experience with these guys. We got to everywhere we needed to be in the time they said we'd be there. We saw the things we wanted to see and then some. Plus a history lesson on Cambodia that we will forever remember. Thank you so much for a wonderful day and when we're back Phallywalnuts you are our guy

The cold water and wet towels were amazing for 2 New Yorkers coming from freezing weather with burnt skin on a cool 90 degree day in siem reap!

We were picked up by our tour saravy and his very kid and helpful drives Lucky. Everything was so nice , amazing and complex. He explained everything nicely,took a lot of photos of us and was funny at the same time. Lucky was waiting for us at the car every time with wet towels with eucalyptus and cold water. It was amazing, and the two of them were the best! Would totally do it again! ❤
