Trip Report Angkor Wat guide

We had a very good experience with a guide in Siem Riep in March of this year. He was 'assigned' to us by our travel agency, but he is a freelancer, as so many of the guides are. At first we were hesitant about him, having some trouble understanding his accent, and because he went into great detail at Angkor Thom (our first stop) However, when I explained nicely that although we wanted to hear history and stories, we really needed to keep moving along rather than standing too long listening at any point, he smoothly adapted to our style. He clearly knows and loves his subject, but was able to gear it to his audience! We got plenty of description, but at a faster pace. And once we caught on to his "cadence", the accent was just interesting, not a problem! He suggested some of the most interesting photo shots, and was also patient and adaptable when we asked to return to a place we'd already passed by, or make an extra short stop while returning to our hotel. Unlike some other guides we had, he did not seem to be checking his cell phone or leaving us unescorted at all - even at lunch when he left us on our own he was very clear on where we could find him if we finished quicker than anticipated. He was our guide for two days at all of the archeological sites. His e-mail contact is: soryavaraman2@icloud.com.
