My family and I would highly recommend this full day tour to anyone planning a trip to the Angkor temples. We explored three sites, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, and Angkor Wat. As this was a private tour, we were able to adjust our airport pick-up time and itinerary to our specific needs. Our tour guide, Tip, did an excellent job showing us around and explaining the sites in detail. He was very caring, especially with our grandmother who was unable to climb the steps of the temples, and made us feel comfortable and entertained throughout the entire duration of the tour. In addition, the added bonus of having a private vehicle with air conditioning and cold water bottles provided us comfort in-between sites and some relief from the humid and hot April weather.
Thank you so much, Tip. Excellent job, excellent service! We would book this tour again if we visit the Angkor temples in the future.
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.
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 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.
This was an absolutely amazing experience. We were treated the Angkor temple complexes in great detail and with a lot of enthusiasm. Our guide Mr. James Bon Thai is one of the best and has excellent command of English along with unique knowledge of the tour, area and world in general. Our driver Mr. Sitha was also great. Thank you for providing us with this great tour.
