An unforgettable day! Our guide Sen was excellent. He was really informative, compassionate and empathetic when it came to covering 4 temples in this heat. The temperature was 41 degrees and we were provided a lot of water to get us through the day. James (our driver) was also excellent. He was extremely polite and took care of us along this long day. Overall this was a day we will not forget soon! Highly recommend doing this tour. Thank you so much Sen and Janesbone.

Good tour guide (Sen) who provided lots of information about the history of the temples we were seeing. Transportation was comfortable and they did their best to keep us cool (cold water and towels in between each stop). I would recommend this tour for a first visit to Angkor wat if you only plan to go one day and just want the highlights.

Excellent trip. The guide Heng Sophal (Mr Paul) was excellent. His knowledge of the temple complex and it's history was excellent. He was engaging and humorous. He also knew all the best spots for photos away from the crowds and was happy to take photos of our group.

Phalla was a great tour guide. He gave our group a lot of flexibility with time, giving us a chance to really take in the entire experience of Angkor Wat in our 2nd day of exploring. He provided water and fantastic service. Highly recommend!

Thank you for a good time. I can't speak English, but Indiana Jones was considerate to me. The sunrise at Angkor Wat is especially beautiful and a must-see.
