Tour Details

Overview

A full day may not be enough to master the magnificence of Angkor. This architectural masterpiece was constructed in the 12th century and covers an area of about 210 hectares. We will enjoy exploring the many temple galleries with columns, libraries, pavilions, courtyards and ponds full of water reflecting these towering temples. To add that special touch, your means of transportation will be a local Tuk Tuk that will be waiting for you just before sunrise. Yes, a sunrise with the Angkor Wat at the background makes it all worthwhile waking up before even breakfast has been served.

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

Know More about this tour

Your own Tuk Tuk and guide wait for you in the early morning at your booked hotel in Siem Reap and head to the main gate of the Angkor temples and make your early morning stop to see the sunrise. Arguably the largest religious building in the world, with a volume of stone equaling that of the Cheops pyramid in Egypt; it is unlike all the other Khmer temples in that it faces west. Its symmetrical towers are stylized on the modern Cambodian flag. Conceived by Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat took an estimated 30 years to build.

Return back to your hotel for breakfast and we move back into the Angkor temples to admire some of the other amazing temple ruins that define Angkor and make it a proud member on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Via the South Gate, we visit Angkor Thom. The Great City of Angkor Thom is one of the central points within the whole Angkor Complex, which was probably more opulent than most European cities in the late 12th Century. This ten square kilometers city is enclosed by an eight-meter high wall and encircled by a hundred meter long moat said to have been inhabited by fierce crocodiles.

We continue to the Bayon and the Preah Khan Temple before lunch. The Bayon is a 12th century masterpiece lies at the very center of Angkor Thom City and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior gallery walls have extensive bas-reliefs but the main features are the towers each with 3 or 4 gently smiling faces, over 200 in total. Continue to Preah Khan, "The Sacred Sword", an extensive monastic complex covering over 56 hectares built by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a monastery and teaching complex.

After lunch, our Tuk Tuk takes us to the Ta Nei Temple and the Tao Keo temple near the Eastern Batay. Both lesser-known, yet as interesting as all the other temple ruins, both temples are of late 12th Century and constructed in stone. Both are located near the northwest corner of the East Baray.

We end our day with the Ta Phrom. The Ta Prohm was built in the late 12th century by Jayavarman VII as a shrine to his mother and is another must for anyone coming to Siem Reap. While clearing back the forest, it was decided to leave them in place to serve as a reminder of how the original discovers found it and other temples.

Our Tuk Tuk waits at the Eastern Gate and brings you back in comfort back to your hotel where you will arrive at around 18:00 hrs.

  • Well worth the money!

  • Great trip, definitely worth the early start! Saw the main temples and the tour guide knew the best places for photos even on a crowded day. The guide was extremely knowledgable and took time to explain the carvings and the meaning behind, overall very enjoyable

  • The tour was great, you get what is advertised. Guide was nice and knowledgeable and seeing the temple at sunrise is a fantastic experience.

  • This was a great tour and the guide did a great job. The sunrise that day wasn't really much of a show, but it was still a wonderful experience. There is so very much to see and experience. Highly recommend.

  • This tour was amazing and our guide was full of knowledge and very accommodating. Unfortunately we cut the trip short due to feeling unwell but I would highly recommend.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our Angkor Wat experience. The guide was very informative and patient. They had phoned our hotel prior to our tour to confirm and were punctual.

  • The sunrise tour is the best option! Suck it up, get up early, and get to Angkor...you won't be disappointed. Our tour guide, Savery, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Whatever pace you want, he will deliver. We learn so much from Savery, and I recommend that folks ask for him specifically. Additionally, Savery can serve as a resource for all things Siem Reap that do no involve Angkor. The temples are most amazing, and the time and money spent are well worth it. Savery is extremely professional and a wonderful photographer, being well versed in IPhones.

  • Savin was a great tour guide, kept us well informed. Tailored the day to suit us. Did everything described and moves. Highly recommend

  • totally recommended!!

  • This tour was everything you could want . Our Tuk Tuk with a driver and a tour guide met us at our hotel at 5:00 am . We started out and went to the ticket office to have our tickets generated . We continued for about a fifteen minutes ride to the entry of the main temple. The guide brought a flashlight so we could see where we were walking. We found a spot on the wall on the pond and had a breakfast which our hotel had packed for us as we waited for the sun to meet the horizon , than we walked into the temple area and watched as the sun came over the temple. It was an amazing experience. After a cup of coffee in the market set-up by locals we started exploring the temples of Angkor. This tour is totally worth it. Our guide was well versed and knew his way thru the temple. I think you can easily get lost. Having just the two of us and our own guide is such a plus.
