Angkor Vat and Siam Reip Temple Tour - Our tour guide Mr Bun was extremely knowledgeable and conducted the tour in a truly professional manner. He took time to explain the origin of each temple, the meaning of the carvings and other intricate details which we would not have known had we gone on our own. The transportation was comfortable with water and cold towels. I would definitely recommend this 2 day tour. Thank you Mr Bun.

Excellent Tour - 100% Recommend - Chhay was an incredible guide. He knew everything about all the temples and sights we saw. He even took us to a local village to see fruit trees and other agriculture. He came prepared with information and pictures as well. The Angkor Wat sunrise was magical. I would 100% recommend this tour.

Incredible tour - highly recommend - Great tour! - learned a lot about Angkor Wat from our guide Chai. Would recommend to anyone looking to come to Cambodia. Only improvements would be a little more time spent at Angkor Wat temple itself - felt a little rushed. Chai went above and beyond to make tour great.

The ONLY way to visit the temples! - Sam (guide) and Sai (driver) were so kind and accommodating. Sam was a wealth of knowledge on Khmer history/culture and Buddhism while Sai kept us refreshed with cold water and towels. The two days were an unforgettable experience!
