To anyone who’s looking for a unique trip in a beautiful place, he’s definitly your guy.…

A jewel of Ratanakiri Mr Smey is the real jewel of Ratanakiri (which means mountain of gems). He took me to a waterfall, to swim in a crater lake and to the jungle. He’s brilliant, trustworthy, and can teach you much more than about Ratanakiri — he can actually teach you about life. He lives simply and happily and one learns just by observing him. Highly recommend as a life experience.…

Excellent guide Smey est un guide parlant très bien anglais et connaissant très bien la région, des endroits plus populaires à ceux hors des sentiers battus. Il offre une variété de tour et un service personnalisé à un prix raisonnable. Il a aussi un homestay que je n’ai pas eu l’occasion d’essayer. Je le recommande chaudement.…

Unglaublich netter Gastgeber Smey ist ein sehr netter und viel lachender Gastgeber, der alles mögliche getan hat, damit wir uns wohl fühlen. Die von ihm geleitete Dschungeltour war super organisiert und er hat uns alles mögliche erklärt. Noch viel mehr hat er uns zu den Dörfern der Stämme erzählen können.…

Spannende goedverzorgde tours met een gids die erg betrokken is bij zijn clienten en de zorg voor omgeving. Vier maal met een brommertour mee gegaan, telkens een andere richting. De gids brengt je op plekken waar bijna geen toeristen komen. Hij vertelt veel over de omgeving en de mensen die daar wonen. Ook de geschiedenis brengt hij voor het voetlicht. Ik zat telkens achterop bij mijn…
