Travel back to the 12th-century Khmer Empire and explore the magnificent monuments of Angkor Wat, where the temple complex tells the Hindu and Buddhist history of the ancient city. Cross the moat and marvel at the towering outer wall. Wander along the rectangular galleries and get up close to the bas-reliefs carved into the sandstone walls. Continue to Angkor Thom to explore the last capital city of the Khmer Empire. Admire the stone figures that greet you at the southern gates, and then stroll towards the Bayon temple to admire its upper terrace and the etchings of smiling faces at its central peak. Visit the Terrace of the Leper King and Terrace of the Elephants. Enjoy lunch at your own expense before visiting the iconic temple of Ta Prohm, world-famous for the remains of temples with trees growing out of the ruins. Watch the sunset at the Pre Rup temple before getting dropped off at...
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a deep understanding of the history of Angkor Wat. Both made sure we were hydrated, as the temperatures were extremely high. We would highly recommend this tour.
Approach the western gate of Angkor Wat by tuk tuk, and take a short walk to Angkor Thom. Hop on the tuk tuk again for a drive to the Bayon temple and then to the eastern gates, as your full-day tour continues. Climb to the top of the city wall and walk along the length of the wall. Along the way, stop at the second of the eastern gates, and at Prasat Chrung. End your wall walk at the northern gate, then head to a local restaurant for lunch (at your own expense). Board the tuk tuk and head to jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm – one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Continue to Angkor Wat, the world’s largest sacred building.
Bob was a really great guide! Super recommended. We did not go to the village near angkor wat because it was very dirty, very narrow and people near there where doing weird stuff. Would like for the guides to take more pictures with the Angkor Wat main temple.
See the stunning temples of Angkor Thom on a half-day afternoon tour, traveling by typical tuk tuk. Following a pick-up from your Siem Reap hotel, drive to the royal city and former capital of the Khmer Empire to walk among the ornate temples of Bayon and Baphuon. Upon arrival, enter the city through the impressive South Gate, and drive towards Bayon Temple. At first glance the temple is nothing more than a shapeless mass of stones. Get closer, and you will see enigmatic faces carved on the temple walls, depicting scenes of Khmer life. Continue to the Terrace of the Elephants to see where the Khmer kings viewed their victorious armies as they returned to the citadel. Next, look at the detailed carvings of the Terrace of the Leper King, winding your way along a narrow passage that leads to the 3-tiered Temple of Baphuon, dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva.
Start your day with a pick-up from your hotel at 8:00 AM where you will be transferred to the Angkor Wat ticket office to purchase your Angkor Pass (at your own expense), before setting off to Angkor Wat, one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Spend the day exploring the temples of Angkor National Park. Begin with the Angkor Wat Temple, considered as one of the seven wonders of the world. Explore the massive Angkor Wat and be captivated by its complexity, intricately carved walls, columns, and chambers. With the help of your professional guide, discover the symbolic meanings of its carvings and architecture, and gain a deeper appreciation of Khmer culture. Next, you will be driven to the fortified city of Angkor Thom. Enter through the South Gate as you walk in the middle of a causeway flanked from side to side by symbolic statues of demons and gods. The enti...
Since there aren’t many tourists around, I was the only person who showed up on this “tour group”- which was fantastic! Had a guide called Mr. Phy whom showed all the best hidden spots, he was well versed in the history of Ankor Wat and took the best pictures on my phone! I had fun :D
Experience an unforgettable 9-hour morning bike ride of the back trails of the Angkor Kingdom of Angkor Wat, and see the legendary temples in the soft morning light. Following a pick-up from your Siem Reap hotel, transfer by air-conditioned vehicle to Angkor Wat where your guide will pick out the perfect position to watch the dawn break. If the weather gods are with you, the sun will rise up behind Angkor Wat and provide the most stunning of silhouettes. As the other early risers head back to their hotel, you will have Angkor to yourselves in the best light of the day. Your guide will give you an overview of Angkor Wat, after which you will take a short ride to enjoy breakfast just outside the temple area. The rest of your day is spent riding the back trails, cycling through ruins and forest, and stopping at iconic and lesser known temples, such as Bayon and Ta Prom. Stop for a lunch ...

We recommend the two day private tour. You are able to do everything at your own pace and have an ac vehicle to return to between temples (especially helpful for children and seniors). We had a senior and a transfer in our group and everyone enjoyed it Our guide was phal and driver Seth. Both very nice men who made us feel welcome!
On the back of your Vespa, you will comfortably navigate the magnificent Temple City of Angkor to explore its most famous, beautiful and astounding temples. You will also disover many hidden jewels not everyone is lucky enough to see. This tour will give you a real sense of the ancient culture and its people and what they are all about. The Angkor tour is special because it is personal. The founder of the local operator, Ms. Akim, grew up right in Wat Angkor Kang Chuong, the spiritual heart of Angkor nestled within the walls of Angkor Wat. There she was raised by her grandfather; the last of three generations of Chief Monks that guided the spiritual life of this entire wondrous Temple City. Your official and professional guide will tell you about Akim’s life as a young girl and how day-to-day life continued in Angkor Wat after the Khmer Rouge. Hear tales about the omnipresent ghosts, bu...

Day 1: Start your journey morning at 7.30 AM when you'll set off through the countryside to the world’s second-largest freshwater, Tonle Sap Lake.

Really good tour. The company was on time for pick-up and we could get a good spot to see Angkor Wat during sunset. For the remaining time, we saw all main temples on the Angkor complex and took many good pictures. Our guide was particularly good for that! As feedback, the tour did not last as originally stated. For day 1 we were supposed to finish at 13 hrs; instead we were heading back by 11:40 am; we did not get enough time to appreciate the Bayon temple as we were rushing to the van to head back to the hotel. On day 2 we were heading at 3:30 but we could've stayed more in my opinion. As an advice to fellow travelers, I would spare an additional day to go back to the temples you liked the most (or to other additional temples, as there are many) either on your own or with a private guide.
Our guide was amazing - BAP. He was able to be flexible with the tour and give us very good information. Thanks again.
Very good guide. On the other hand, an unexplained error occurred: the payment was made in Russian rubles ...
A fabulous 2 day tour, great value for money . Sak was our exceptional guide. Get him if you can
Highest recommendation I can give. Excellent tour guide and driver. A magical experience.
