Vuthee is a excellent guide. He was on time and explained everything in great detail. He also went above and beyond with our group by showing us the best places to take photos and even played photographer quite often - he takes very good photos! He made the long tour very enjoyable! The driver was also great and helpful - James Bond! Overall even though the tour is quite long, it was very enjoyable thanks to them! Definitely recommend booking with them!

Everything was great! Our group of 5 particularly enjoyed the personal stories of our guide Vuthy (Mr T), who was open and honest, answered all our questions. He also knew loads about the past and present of the temples. Could not have imagined a better way to see them. The pick up was on time, plenty of bottled water was provided throughout the day.
