One of the best trips of my life. Kesera and Nouk were friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, got to know each one of us and recommended the way of the land, picture spots (I am a photo enthusiast), they extensively explained each location, the history, the Buddhism culture, the locations were gorgeous, Thai people are extremely friendly, and polite.

Absolutely recommend this trip! Odette (Didi) & Herb

I wanted to pass along a note regarding my tour guides for my latest trip to Thailand and Angkor Wat. Both Ketsara (thailand) and Na Tuom (Cambodia) did an excellent job to enrich my travel experience to both countries. The sites and culture were fun to experience, but also having their insights and greatly added to the enjoyment of travel.

There were times when my fellow travelers created tension and made Ketsara’s and Tuom’s job very difficult in both Thailand and Cambodia. But I want to reassure them both that they handled these tense moments and difficult travelers with grace, which helped all travelers continue to have an enjoyable and amicable experience. If you’d like more feedback, please feel free to call or email me.

Thank you to Ketsara and Tuom, and to SmarTours for another “trip of a lifetime.”

We have just returned from the Amazing Thailand and Angkor Wat extension trip. We couldn't have been happier. Ketsara and Nok were terrific guides. Their knowledge and expertise were impressive, and they worked hard to accommodate everyone's needs. The trip was adventurous, happy, and comfortable. Our goal is always to immerse ourselves in the country we are visiting and not worry about logistics - that is precisely what Smartours did for us. We felt the value and service were outstanding. Ketsara helped us manage the airport for our flight to Cambodia, making certain we knew where to go and how to proceed with our flights.
The extension to Cambodia was equally satisfying. Our guide, Sokhoeun Bout, was kind and very knowledgeable. His attention to detail matched what we had experienced in Thailand, allowing us to enjoy every aspect of the beautiful temples of Angor Wat, Angkor Thom, and more. The final moment that made me feel good about Smartours was when Ketsara contacted me to explain just what tot expect back in Bangkok on our return journey home and where to go to make our final transfer flights. Great care was taken to ensure our travel was easy. I cannot thank her enough for this extra effort. My husband Terry and I will be return customers because of Smartours outstanding guides, Ketsara, Nok, and Sokhoeun. - Jacqueline Davis
