Testimonials in 2013: What our clients love about travelling with Hanuman
 
 
 
Kevin & Hayley (UK) December 2013
We've had a fantastic time thanks to your staff for helping to make it so memorable. Stunning temples, fascinating time in Phnom Penh, the guides really added to our knowledge and the experience. All exceeded our expectations.

Jan (USA) December 2013
Ms Sokunthy was extremely thoughtful and helpful…she was excellent. I would recommend her highly and certainly will engage her again if possible on any future trips.

John & Barbara (USA) December 2013
Ms Mariya, our guide, was an expert guide, among the best ever. Hanuman is very lucky to have her, she is the best. It could not have been better, I was very impressed and amazed at her knowledge and organizational skills… Again cannot tell you strongly enough, how fabulous, skilled, expert and organized Ms Mariya is. She is one of the reasons we would come back.

Jennifer (UK) November 2013
Sophoan absolutely made our trip unforgettable. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, sense of humour and eagerness to go the extra mile were all outstanding. She enabled us to meet and chat with many of her fellow Cambodians, building many bridges between us, all in a sympathetic and empathetic manner - she was a star!

Kathleen (UK) November 2013
I've been on lots of Explore tours with excellent leaders, but Sophoan was absolutely the best, both as a guide and tour leader. As a guide she was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and added interest by pointing out her personal favorites as well as the best photo spots. As a leader she made sure to include everyone and was an important factor in the great group dynamic that we had. She provided many extras to the itinerary which were much appreciated, and she was also very aware of sustainability and environmental issues. All in all she made a major contribution to one of my best ever Explore trips.

Chris (UK) November 2013
The success of the tour was down almost entirely to the efforts of our tour leader Sophoan. I have been on five holidays with Explore and she was the best tour leader by far. She was constantly buzzing and looking for things for us to do. Her knowledge of the temples was infinite and the ease with which she was able to communicate both with us and the various Cambodians that we encountered was a sight to behold. She also talked to us individually at various times during the tour to make sure we were enjoying the activities. She is a very personable young lady, very well organised with a great sense of humour - and with a very successful future in front of her.

Sandra (UK) November 2013
Sophoan was one of the best 2 tour leaders I have had the joy to travel with. She is a fabulous people person who managed the diverse needs of each group member effortlessly and was very instrumental in helping the group gell very quickly. She quickly learnt what we were interested in and provide information accordingly. She was patient and caring, even spotting that I had cut my foot before I knew and treating it so I had no after effects. Her knowledge was astounding and always up to the minute - I am sure she spent all night checking everything! On early morning starts she had drinks and breakfast for us on the bus, stopped at out of the way places that she had found previously to show us examples of local life eg. a little farm, paddy fields, a traditional house etc, etc. We also sampled local charity establishments where young people with learning difficulties ran a café (fab food too) - too many things to list! She researched the best places to eat and drink at the best prices in every place we visited, knew the best times to go to temples etc so we had time to absorb the atmosphere and not rush round. She is a lovely, knowledgeable, kind, gentle person who is credit to her country and she made this holiday very special.

Kathleen & Jay (USA) November 2013
I would quickly recommend Chamrong and Hanuman. Incredible! Our experiences with Chamrong exceeded all expectations. We have created moments and memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Chamrong was a wealth of knowledge, fun to spend our days with and will be fondly remembered as a friend for life! He was wonderful, we were so lucky to have him with us. The sites were amazing. The itinerary was well thought out and creates an incredible experience. This trip was the experience of a lifetime!

He enriched our time in Cambodia greatly and made our trip far more fulfilling than it would have been without him.
