The company ensured every detail was taken care of.
The highlights of the tour included a trip to Preak Tol village and bird sanctuary; a close second was seeing sunrise at Angkor Wat.
I would not hesitate to use their services again.
My family had a tour for 3 days. We had a wonderful time. The driver and the tour guide,Vivath, were very friendly and approachable. Vivath showed vast amount of knowledge regarding the temple sites we visited (ang kor site) and he was very flexible to change dining venues and the planned schedule to suit our needs. The temples were beautiful and we also loved the resort he arranged for us. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much, Vivath!

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Siem Reap, thanks to the tour guide services provided by Asiavipa. It helped us understand the local culture better and the tour guide explained the history when we toured around the heritage sites locally. It's a must-go destination once in a lifetime. The locals are extremely friendly and welcoming. It's definitely the place I'd like to be back again.

I have been more than impressed with the customer service, the elegant explanations and information by Borey the best tour guide in Cambodia. In short Asia Vipa is fantastic. I would recommend every tourist wanting a high quality service at a reasonably price to use Asia Vipa. But Vivath and his team would be just too busy if that were the case, good luck to you all.

While organising the trip we spoke to the Owner/Manager, Mr Vivath Chhim, using Skype which made it very easy to communicate. We suggested things we would like to see and Vivath came up with the itinerary. We had our own airconditioned mini van and driver who drove sensibly and Vivath was our tour guide. His English is very good and he is very passionate and knowledgeable about Cambodia. They have guides who can speak all different languages so can organise trips for everyone. The trip went like clock work and we could still be flexible. We are very lucky and grateful that we came across this tour comapny and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Our tour guide, Mr. Vivath and the owner of the company, was dependable, knowledgeable, friendly, a very good English speaker, punctual and very accommodating. He took great care of us and along with the driver, took good care of my mother who couldn't walk very far. The driver was excellent and also knowledgeable, took us everywhere, even to an unplanned event. I found this tour site on the internet and from the first communication, Mr. Vivath answered all our questions promptly. He was able to organize a splendid tour of all the interests of the area into the very short time we were there (two days). We especially enjoyed the boat trip to the floating villages. The Cambodian Cultural Village was the only place where we were too tired. A full day just for that would have been better. The dances we did see were quite entertaining, even if they were all in Khmer. On the day we left he made sure all our luggage fit into the toyota camry which we were taken toPhnom Penh in with some very good drivers. The trip was very smooth. Overall, I would recommend Mr. Vivath to anyone visiting Cambodia, and I would use his services again. He was very flexible, even made reservations at a hotel of our choice which was considerably cheaper. Thank you Mr. Vivath!

Both my partner and I had the very good fortune to have chosen ASIA VIPA Travel & Tours for a magnificent tour of Cambodia. We wanted to see as much of Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh as we could do in our seven days. I was able to contact Mr. Chhim Vivath via his internet web site and within hours he was able to produce an itinerary that would allow us to see not only what we had targeted as highlights, but many other areas of interest. Chhim was there at Siem Reap airport to greet us and he remained with us for the next week. Not only did he display outstanding knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm, he was personable, friendly and nothing was a problem for him to organize. Having had the good opportunity to travel much of the world, Chhim made this part of our trip truly enjoyable, and highly memorable. I can only say again thank you for a fantastic trip. Mark
I found Asiavipa by searching on the internet for a 2 day one night visit to Cambodia.
Mr Vivath Chhim responded very quickly and through discussions over the internet I booked a tailor made tour and paid through the internet, all very easy and a good price.
My flight from London to Singapore was late and I missed the connection to Siem Reap, arriving 7 hours later than planned.
Vivath was at the airport to meet me and re-organise the tour to accommodate everything I wanted to see. His big cheery smile was fabulous.
Vivath accompanied me to all the sites and gave interesting detailed explanations of life in Cambodia and the temples we visited.
The driver was very careful and always punctual.

"I used Asia Vipa Travel & Tours during a week-long visit to Siem Reap and Pnom Penh in August 2009. I cannot express enough how impressed I was with the attention to detail and service provided by Vipa, and would strongly recommend them. As a busy working-person with limited time to research and organise a trip like this myself, I really needed a company to take care of all of the details for me, to ensure I didn't need to worry about any of the hotel/ meals and local travel arrangements and to ensure I was given a personal guide to some of the history and culture of Cambodia. The big differentiator between Vipa and other travel company's, is that this is staffed by local people who take care and pride in sharing their own personal experiences with you. If you're lucky enough to get Vivath himself, his personal attention to detail and to making sure your trip and experiences are exactly what you wanted, is first class. Vipa will tailor-make your itinerary to exactly what you want to see and experience and leave enough flexibility for you to change something on the day, or do something extra. They offer you a wide-choice of accommodations to suit your individual budgets (unlike many tour operators) and will personally ensure you spend as much time as you want to in the various places of interest, whether it be the magnificent temples, or the more chilling and moving experiences, including the Landmine museum in Siem Reap, or the Genocide Museum and Killing Fields, both in Pnom Penh. I felt enriched following my visit, and I know I could never have found the time to put this all together myself and experience what I did, without Vipa's help. Thank you very much and I will certainly use Vipa again on a future return visit.

We experienced “history brought to life” I am must grateful for our tour guide and the Asia Vipa network that helped find my “lost” tour pass. It was found and returned almost immediately, we appreciate our guide’s alertness in safeguarding our beginnings while we lost ourselves is trying to capture “Siem Reap”. We have seen many other tourist who have come and gone and missed many important and interesting details about “Siem Reap” a lot of valuable insights and tips were shared with us to make the holiday even more value added. I was pleased with our tour driver as well as he was a good example of the best amang “Siem Reap” driver, displaying safety, courtesy and patience whilst ferrying as from destination to destination.....

Excellent and well planned tour! Fast and accurate information at booking from Mr. Vivath.
Our guide Mr. Nin was very good. He took his mission being our teacher in Hindu and Buddhist legends seriously and with great patience he actually managed to teach us a lot. He was also very flexible to our wishes when organizing our days in Siem Reap. The visit to Cambodian farm-home was realty appreciated, Very good driving by Mr. Gun, who also served us with water with a smile all the time.
The food was best at the first lunch-place, but ok also at the other places. The Hotel (Royal Angkor Resort) was also very good. Excellent breakfast and very nice pool-area, some services like laundry unfortunately so overpriced that we refrained from using them.

We had a great time in both Phnom Penh & Siem Reap. Our guide “Som” in Phnom Penh is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge period. He impressed us with his knowledge & candor and helps us appreciate and feel the history.
In Siem Reap, our guide “Nin” though young is no less knowledgeable and very responsive to questions and participative in cultural exchanges.
Accommodation in Phnom Penh was clean though a bit out of the way of most places. Breakfast at Mittapheap Hotel was simple but adequate – liked the strong coffee + fresh baguettes, amongst s others. In Siem Reap, we stayed at Royal Empire Hotel, new & delightful, furnished with teak finishes in modernist decor, Great pool area for outdoor breakfast – is cool <20˚ c in the Dee mornings >. Food at breakfast gets you by for the morning. Most lunches & dinners arranged by Vivath, the owner of Asia VIPA Travel & Tours is a good mixture of Khmer, Thai & local faces, some at great ambience settings. Overall a great experience.

Hotels and dinners were excellent. Show were very nice. Point of important, les time in hotel & more time in the temples on the first day. Second day was very nice, beautiful temples. We had a very nice time. Angkor Wat is amazing. About the tour, when our car broke down there was another car ready very soon afterwards. Very good service. And they were also very kind to accompany us to the bank.

Itinerary for the trip was well planned out by company. Due to the hot weather, opportunities for resting back at the hotel ensured we were well rested and refreshed and ready to continue with the program. Cold bottled water was much appreciated.
The guide was very enformative and shared with us much of the rich history of his fascinating country. The pleasant smilles and friendliness of him and the driver made this trip an enjoyable one.

Thanks to your helpful services and Ung Raksa (your amazing, articulate and delightful guide) I had a fantastic time in Siem Reap. From the minute I stepped off the plane, your service made my experience enjoyable, educational and facinating. I will recommend your services to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again,

Vivath has introduced Sak Samnang as our tour guide for our visit in Siem Reap. Bright and knowlegable. Dependable. Could not make our visit to Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom without his service.

chhim vivath es una empresa seria que esta empezando con el turismo espanol, lo cual es de agradecer ya que por este lugar nadie se esfuerza con la lengua espanola, de que sirve visitar los templos de Angkor si no hablas ingles y no tienes quien te explique la historia de estas fantasticas piedra, lo dicho, bien por chhim vivath, tu estancia en Siem Reap sera mas grata gracias a ellos te lo facilitan todo y a unos precios razonables, que visto lo que hay aqui no es poco.

My husband and I had Vivath as our tour guide in Siem Reap in Jan. 2006 and he was fantastic! He has a deep knowledge of the temples and was wonderful about sharing insights into the Khmer culture. He geared the pace of the tour to our needs and was very accommodating. We highly recommend his services.

A most memorable and comprehensive week´s tour for our 2 families (a party of 10 made up of 4 adults and 6 energetic children aged between 6 years old and 14 years old, so it wasn´t easy by any means!) One family flew in from Singapore and the other from Japan, and on different days as well, but Vivath in his "laid-back" manner organised things so well, it went swimmingly. The hotel was friendly and comfortable, food delicious, tour itinerary marvellous, Vivath (and San the driver, a super and steady driver at that) greeting us each morning with smiles on their faces inspite of a couple of wet days.........cultural education with great fun, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Highly recommended, and absolutely great value-for-money using locals, which we totally approve of!

Vivath together with his driver Ron were a superb team. We engaged his services for a 3D/2N tour of Siem Reap although we stayed 5D/4N and found him to be very accommodating and knowledgeable guide. We had the opportunity to try Khmer

Vivath, a very bright tour guide ! His service is beyond my expectation, with very reasonable charge. As I am from Malaysia [can't spent like westerner ], I was looking for cheap but good package. Here. on this web site , I came across this young man, whom I make friend with even before I arrive Siem Reap. His package is highly recommanded. He can arrange for U to C even real APSARA.

Excellent service and good tour. Anybody will feel comfortable to go around with this guy "VIVATH". He seems like can answer whatever you ask regarding Angkor's history and Khmer culture. Well done, Vivath.
― Billy Tenh, Dynasty Inn, Malaysia ― 6/1/2006
Nous avons utilisé les services de Vivath pendant 5 jours. Le séjour a été merveilleux. Vivath connait énormément de choses sur Angkor, est d'une grande gentillesse et les discussions sont toujours très intéressantes. Merci
- Migneco Octave, France ― 4/25/2006
I was with Mr. Vivath during 3 month touring and working together for my studies in a wonderful experience. Friendly and the very best well known of the Angkor site and his own Khmer culture. Vivath, I hope to see you again soon!
- Carlos Abellanosa, Spain ― 3/12/2006
I have used Vivath's services as a guide during my stay in Siem Reap. Thanks to him we saw in 4 days most of the wonderful temples of Angkor and were knowledgeably supplied with the history and background of the place. The visits were very pleasant as Vivath is very serious and nice. I am happy I met him.
