What people are saying about Preah Dak

The choice has been great. Despite the heat, our guide Raman and the driver did their best to always give us cold water and a fresh washcloth every time we got into the minivan. The food restaurant was very good, air conditioned and not at all overwhelming. Raman speaks English very well, something difficult to find around here. Furthermore, he is always very attentive to the group, explains things very well and is an expert photographer. The only thing to keep in mind is that in summer a full day in Angkor is physically very demanding and exhausting, but it was definitely worth it. The sunset at Angkor Vat has nothing to envy of the sunrise, and you don't have to get up early.

Had an amazing time on our trip! The picnic lunch provided is a really special extra in this trip! There was so much food and the variety was great. Our guide, Mony, was absolutely incredible. His fun energy and vast knowledge of the history of the area made our day unforgettable. I would really recommend this trip to anyone as it includes the special lunch and because of the great tour guide we had l.

Great experience . The guide was very informative. The driver was polite and gave cold wet rags to clean and cool down after every stop. The tour is very long and it’s extremely hot. I would suggest bringing an extra shirt. They also provide you with water throughout the entire trip which is nice.

The guide was the best we’ve ever had. He was so full of information about any and everything. Can’t recommend this tour enough. It’s a loonngggg day with lots of bumpy roads to pass but it’s worth it.

The attention of the guide Mr. Sareik was excellent, very attentive and attentive to the group. Everything very well organized. Excellent experience
