I have been living in Cambodia for the last 4 years now, and I love it here! Siem Reap is a mixture of culture, history, smiling faces, and much more. I will be helping you creating your personal & private itinerary in Cambodia. I like to take the time with our travelers to exchange, talk, meet, and get to know you.

To prepare the perfect journey for you, your friend or/and your family, I will give you advice and suggestions. Outside my work, I am involved in small projects with kids and art, like cultural exchange and teaching. And I will never say no for a day or two escape from the city: biking, trekking, staying at homestay, or meeting others.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in adventure throughout Cambodia, from family tours to active itineraries (trekking and biking). We create custom made trips and tours to Cambodia putting adventure and exchange with the locals at the heart of your journey. For us, traveling means responsible and sustainable tourism, especially with our local social engagements.

We take you off the beaten path, to meet the locals and discover the uniqueness of the country.
Thanks to years of experience, we have been able to design unprecedented and original tours. We bring you to rarely visited places unspoiled by mass tourism, where you will spend time with the locals in a pagoda, the countryside or a floating house.

We encourage meeting locals in small groups inside their traditional houses, for a mutually respectful environment which is conducive to a sustainable and unforgettable experience."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Graduating in tourism in Toulouse, I moved to Ecuador where I stayed for a few months as general manager of an eco-lodge to work on a development project. Then I Relocated to Mongolia, where I became General manager for a travel agency. Over four years I designed many projects and tours. Open minded, lively and sociable, I dropped my bags in Cambodia 3 years ago working with a great team. Together, we want to share our love for this fascinating country & much of which is yet to be explored."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Every year we travel throughout Cambodia looking for new itineraries. Every time it's a new experience. The last was our trip from Kampong Thom to Koh Ker by bike. A 2-night tour between countryside, rice fields, and forest. Beautiful green landscape with water everywhere, given it was the rainy season. For me, it was a challenging 2 days with 80 km of biking!"

Spiritual journey to angkor wat & cambodia, Cambodia - Jul 4 - Jul 15, 2017

Traveler: Wynette Y. - Local specialist: Estelle Chassaniol

Perfect in Siem Reap! As you know, not as good in Phnom Penh.

I really appreciated the way that she grasped the kind of trip I was after, found a dinner companion for me, and matched me with an intelligent and compatible guide.
