Know More about this tour

Spend an entire day visiting UNESCO-listed Angkor complex with your personal guide, starting with hotel pickup in Siem Reap, considered the gateway to the vast archaeological site. While you travel there by private vehicle, learn about the symmetry and composition of the ancient temples built during the Khmer Empire .

On arrival, pay the entrance fee to the park then set off for the royal city of Angkor Thom and its centerpiece, the Bayon. At first glance, the stone towers may seem like shapeless masses, but further scrutiny reveals enigmatic faces of former King Jayavarman VII sculpted into every direction. A short walk away is the Baphuon temple and Terrace of the Elephants, which served as a platform from which the king could welcome back his victorious army.

Continue by car to Ta Prohm, a jungle temple overgrown with fig trees that lend it a haunting atmosphere. The magnificent roots of the trees have merged over the centuries with the temple’s huge stone blocks, emphasizing a ‘forgotten city’ feeling.

Have lunch (own expense) at one of the restaurants in the Angkor area recommended by your guide. Afterward, visit Angkor Wat, considered by many to be one of the most inspired and spectacular monuments ever built. With its soaring towers and extraordinary bas-reliefs, the temple is truly an awe-inspiring sight surrounded by a glistening moat. Learn from personalized commentary about the hundreds of fine carvings of Apsara and Hindu mythology.

In the evening, you have the option to view the sunset at one of the temples recommended by your guide, before return transport to your hotel in Siem Reap.

  • Such a amazing full day tour.I'm went to this trip with my boyfriend. Okay so let me start to explain our trip.Our guide name is Mr.Raksa and our driver name is Mr.Nimol.We went to this trip around 14 october 2017.Our trip start with pick up at my hotel in Siemreap area and go to buy a ticket for one-day access Angkor wat area price is 37 per person.We start first point at Angkor tom see many historical places that made from rocks and manpower.Unfortunately around 11 a.m. weather is start to heavy rain but our guide spirit is very good we continue our trip to Ta prohm while it's rain. It's sound terrible but we think it's very fun. After lunch we go to the last point for this trip is Angkor wat. Overall i want to recommend this trip to everyone who want to travel private because your guide will have time to explain about every places that you go and private vehicle would make you feel very comfortable to travel not crowded. If we have a chance to go back we will book a sunset tour for sure. With love bong cartoonnilobon.

  • Hi, we booked this tour before we arrived in Cambodia. We called the viator hotline cause we had a few questions. The hotline was great, they put me on hold while getting information directly from the tour company.

    Because we selected the private tour, we were able to modify our tour to fit our schedule. The usual pick up time was like 8 am. But we changed the pick up to 5:30am to make it for the sunrise viewing. After that, we returned to our hotel for breakfast and a rest til 9am. Then we went on to Angkor Thom, Bayon, lunch time and then back to Angkor Wat. There was more to the tour, but we decided to end the tour there. We were tired.

    Our tour guide Tip and driver Pip were very good. Tip was very informative with historical data and life as a Cambodian. He spoke well in English. We appreciated his tour and would recommend him anytime. i think it is essential to have a guide. At Angkor Thom, a woman became lost from her group and was very upset and desperate. As this place is vast, you could easily get lost.

    I especially like that the tour guide and driver were accommodating to our schedule. So if you are tired and can't manage the whole day all at one go, they were flexible and kind.

  • It was a really good tour. Our tour guide, Mr. James Bon Thai, was accommodating and filled the tour with all the information he could share with us. We learned a lot from this Cambodian trip, particularly from this tour of the temples at Angkor Archaeological Park Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayon. It was raining on the day of our tour, and we didn't get to go up the Angkor Wat tower they don't allow people to go up when it's raining, but we understand that it is so -- for the safety of the tourists. But it was all good, nevertheless. The information and history of the temples -- and Cambodia, too, in general -- that Mr. James shared with us truly made this tour a highly-recommended one. Thank you so much, Mr. Bon Thai, and to our driver, as well, for this wonderful tour.

  • This trip was a lot of fun. I saw it was private but I didn't think it was literally us, the guide and the driver. It was a pleasant surprise! They picked up us and drove us to the main temple area. We visited a lot of temples and it was amazing. Our tour guides name was Tip and he was so much fun! He was always smiling, cracking jokes, and helping us take awesome pictures. He was super engaging and really made the trip. We had lunch at a great restaurant and tried some authentic Cambodia food. We went in August and the weather was intense but I didn't make the trip any less enjoyable.

    The trip says full day and you do have that option. Around 2pm we were done our temples and Tip said we had the option of hanging around till sunset or heading back. We were not in Cambodia long so we chose to head back so it was fully all day but it was jam packed with adventure! I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking to get a personalized, interactive, and informative tour of these great temples.

    Thanks, Tip!!

  • Our Angkor Temple tour with tour guide Tip was absolutely amazing. The pickup at our hotel was seamless with the help of our personal driver, Seth. Both men were courteous, kind and always had our best interest in mind. We truly felt that we had a VIP experience from the very beginning. Tip guided us through the temples providing invaluable knowledge and added so much depth to our experience. I cannot imagine walking around these temples without a tour guide. Tip was willing to do whatever we wanted, suggested great photo opportunities, and allowed us the flexibility to explore on our own. Not to mention, he was practically a professional photographer with the quality photos he took of us! He gave us great insight into the local culture, the religious aspects, and history. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to get an authentic, personalized Angkor Wat experience and would specifically recommend Tip.

    A few recommendations: Wear shoes that you do not mind getting dirty. Umbrellas were supplied by our driver when it rained, so no need to bring your own. Cold bottled water was provided to us whenever we needed it. Bring mosquito repellent.

    Outstanding Highlights: After the tour, Tip and Seth took us to a reputable electronic store after we told them we lost our camera charger. Tip took some amazing panoramic pictures of us throughout the day. We entered through the back gate of Angkor Wat to avoid the large crowds at the front gate. We had our choice of which temples to go to for as long as we wanted. Although we chose not to, due to exhaustion, Tip and Seth were willing to wait several hours after the temple tours ended so that we could see the sunset at a temple of our choosing.

  • Tour guide and vehicle were very good. Our guide spoke English very well and was well informed about the ruins. He knew all the photo spots as well. I have been here before so I can say we didn't quite see everything. If I hadn't been through everything last time I never would have known and would have given 5 stars. All in all I would recommend.

  • We had a wonderful day with our guide Sambath 'Tip' Ea from K-york Travel Services, and his driver, in a beautifully air-conditioned car. His knowledge, sense of humour, and photography tips and tricks really made the experience for us - along with a delicious lunch stop at the Batchum Khmer Kitchen! It was a hot day, but we never felt as though it dragged or that we were rushed - we were able to go at our own pace, which I guess is the beauty of a private tour. Thanks so much for a memorable day, Tip!

  • Wow. A really great days tour. Our guide Sanlap mr tip was onto it right from the time we set out. His knowledge of the history and
    Geography made the day helping us understand what we were seeing. Angkor Watt temple is a must see but this tour also takes you to a number of other temples and surrounding buildings which are also great. Had an excellent day out despite the sunburn and heat. Take a hat and sunscreen. Highly recommend

  • Raksa was an amaxing guide. Turned up on time, very knowledgeable and was great in personalizing our trip to accommodate our 2year old also which was so appreciated.

    We saw so much, all the major sights and temples plus a few others and were so glad of the ac, cold water and great guide!

  • We had an incredible day touring with Sampat on April 24! He was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and expertly toured us around the temples listed on our tour, as well as a few others that he wanted to show us. My wife and I are often shy to ask for pictures so most of our photos together on trips are selfies, so it was great that Sampat was always offering to take pictures of us he took some really cool shots too. It was very, very hot and it was great to have a driver who kept the air conditizoning running so the car was cold when we arrived. Would absolutely recommend this trip, and would recommend to ask for Sampat.
