Inquiry Submission By Max C

Hi TripAdvisor Cambodia Forum community,

I will be in Cambodia with my wife in between February 22, 2020 and March 12, 2020 and the two of us are looking for a very specific service that I haven’t been able to find on any forums or on google, so my last effort is asking here if any of you know something along the lines of what i’m looking for.

The service i’m looking for is hiring a local who would act as a private chauffeur who would also act as a guide throughout all of Cambodia (I will post my itinerary at the bottom of the post). This enables me to customize the trip’s destination and stay lenghts without struggling with transportation issues while also relying on the guide’s fluency in Khmer and knowledge of food and resting places. We would pay the guide a sufficient amount to cover his wage and his fuel, food and hotel/inn expenses for the whole mount he would be travelling with us.

It is not out of the question that said guide could drop us off and go back to his place to then come back pick us up when we’re ready to move to the next city, but that would mean more travelling for him.

Does this exist? If not, something that looks like it? If yes, have you personally tried it and how was your experience?

Cheers and thank you for your time and your answers
