Dear Poan, It was wonderful to spend time with you in Cambodia. My students learned so much from you. I will see you again soon. Gerry Waite Center for Peace and Conflict Studies Ball State University Muncie, Indiana USA

A fantastic trip - with the temples Angkor a high point (one of many) for me! Our guide there, Sophoan Rath, was especially good - we highly recommend him for future tours. He was able to show us a large temple some miles out in the country, which was much appreciated and a bit of an extra effort for him. We are still amazed that everything, and I do mean everything, worked so well - right down to the flights home.

Sophoan is a gem. If you, like me were nervous about arranging a trip half way around the world with someone you never met, no need to worry here. Mr Rath planned the trip thoroughly, provided an excellent hotel, was timely, informative and flexible. We were honored to have Sophoan and his lovely wife join us for a dinner and a show on our last night in Siem Reap. More than a guide, Mr Rath is a thoughful and enjoyable person. Jim and Joan.

Rath Sophoan was the organizer and tour guide for a two-day visit my daughter, neice and I took to Cambodia in early April 2013. He was of stallar quality in all aspects and is an immense asset to his organization and to the country of Cambodia. Responsiveness: Always clear, pricise and prompt in email contacts prior to the trip. Organization: Always negotiated all obstacles to make our stay run smoothly. This included initial pickup and final dropoff in Bangkok that involved border handoff and pasport control issues. Politeness and consideration: Was always a gem to deal with and treated us wonderfully in every way. He anticipated food, rest and bathroom needs, frequently offered to take group photos of us at good photo spots and drove us safely and expeditiously multiple times through challenging traffic. Knowledge: He is a treasure trove of historical and cultural information about Cambodia. As a history person I could not have been more pleased. Command of English: Superb to the point that we enjoyed sharing logic and mathematical puzzles together. He is also possessed of a wonderful sense of intellect, inquisitiveness and good humor. He was a delight ot spend time with. In over 50 years of travel including over 100 travel guides he stands out as the best I have ever had. Richard Hess, PhD

We booked a one-day trip to Prek Toal which turned out to be truly memorable although the water level was too low to permit out boat to get all the way into the reserve (we visited in April, at the very end of the dry season, when the water is lowest). Sophoan Rath was a terrific companion: friendly, helpful, highly knowledgeable about the history, culture, and natural history of Cambodia. Everything ran like clockwork, and the "lunch boxes" from the Blue Pumpkin contained enough (wonderful) food for an army! Sophoan even thought to call our hotel to ask them to make up a packed breakfast for us because of the 5:00 a.m. pickup which meant that we could not get breakfast at the hotel. Highly recommended, though I would suggest visiting earlier in the dry season when the water is higher. Even so, we had great views of many birds, including three of our four main target species (Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Lesser and Greater Adjutant). No Milky Stork, alas. Getting a close-up look at the local fishing culture was fascinating, though it is distressing to see that fishing continues within the Prek Toal sanctuary and that the rangers turn a blind eye in exchange for a payoff in fish. A day to remember forever!

Sophoan Rath to najlepszy przewodnik jakiego spotkałam w swoich podróżach. Jest niezwykle odpowiedzialny i dbajacy o klienta. Pomimo tragicznych przeżyć z epoki czerwonych khmerów jest tak sympatyczną i pogodna osobą, otwartą na innych ludzi. Ponadto ma ogromną wiedzę o historii i kulturze swojego kraju. Bardzo dobrze mówi po angielsku. Jest w stanie zorganizować wszystko czego potrzebujesz w Kambodży. Na moje specjalne życzenie światynie w Angkorze zwiedzaliśmy na rowerach :) Phoan to przewodnik, którego nigdy nie zapomnisz. Polecam go z całego serca. Iwona J. z Warszawy.
