Read all the reviews. They speak the truth. We booked a 2 day tour with Son and I have to say I will NEVER forget it. I should probably give credit more through reviews, but the fact is I don't. I'm not a huge reviewer. With that said, Son deserves all the credit in the world. He does what he... More

My wife and I took the two day tour +morning rise to see the sunrise at Angkor Watt, and we had a great time. Sorm was very knowledgeable in the history of the UNESCO site, and his English was very proficient. We would recommend Sorm to anyone requiring a good in depth tour of the site

I read so many reviews for one day tour guides for Angkor Wat and the other temples and it got overwhelming. My husband tried looking at getting a guide and driver separately to save money but that got confusing and didn't look to be much cheaper. I found Angkor in English through my research and Son Sorn (first name Son)... More

I can't say enough about how absolutely life changing this experience was for me... Son made the entire trip so memorable! He was such a great guide and his knowledge about the culture, history, art, religion, politics, and sociological issues was beyond what I expected to get out of a tour. Do yourself a favor and spend a few days... More
