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.
