We had two wonderful days exploring the Angkor Temple complex. Our driver, Nehru, got us from place to place safely and always had a cool tool and water waiting for us after each stop. Our guide, Pi, was so knowledgeable about each temple, stories that went with the carvings, who built the temples and so much more. We opted for a private tour, so we could go at our own pace, and would highly recommend it.

Very well organized tour, we had a great day. Our guide Sen was amazing, he demonstrated a lot of knowledge about Angkor and a huge sense of humor. He also took a lot of great pictures (know all nice spots)! I definitely recommend this tour and our guide Sen!

Cherry was the absolute best guide , he was so informative and great humour and was very interested in other peoples culture. He didn’t rush and was genuine in his approach. Lovely guy!! Great English too. We love you Cherry !

See the Temples in person, nothing compares I promise you. Our guide Narith was so kind and super knowledgeable. The best day out in Siem Reap.

The tour was enjoyable and everything went smoothly
