Cambodia guide

Reviewed May 3, 2014

I was fortunate to have Bon as our tour guide for a 2 week trip that I planned for 12 undergraduate students and 3 faculty members. He was with us everyday while traveling across Cambodia. His English and communication skills were perfect. He has an extensive knowledge of Cambodian and American culture and was able to make comparisons of the two cultures. Bon would make suggestions based on what he thought we would like and was ALWAYS flexible and patient. For example, one day he suggested we make an unplanned stop along the road where he knew we could try fried tarantulas - thinking it would add to the experience. My students were thrilled. He was always concerned for our safety. He gave us suggestions and advice of where to go and where not to go at night. Because of Bon, our trip was rich with historical, political, architectural , religious and demographic information that we could not have learned on our own or from a book. This trip was a huge success because of Bon. I would highly recommend him. I have given his name to anyone that mentions they are thinking about going to Cambodia.

Best Guide! You Will Be So Happy with Bon!

Reviewed April 16, 2014

We spent 2, full days with Bon in March and were so happy with his service! For starters, his English is excellent! We began with a sunrise tour of Angkor Wat. Bon and a driver picked us up at our hotel, they were always early and ready to go, and we headed to Angkor Wat, then other temples throughout the first day. I don't want to give too much away, as his tours were full of surprises and delights, however Bon took us on the paths less traveled and we saw the temples as if we were the only ones there. Of course we were not alone, however Bon planned our tours, arrivals and departures to avoid the crowds. He is knowledgeable and offered great insight and answered our endless questions. He has studied his history! The 2nd day included a tour of a local market, a boat ride on Tonle Sap, a temple tour and a visit to a monastery. Bon truly made our visit comfortable, safe, informative and exciting. I feel very comfortable recommending his services and wish you a wonderful visit to Siem Reap.
