Full description
At 8:30 AM, depart from your hotel and travel to the Angkor Archaeological Park. First, travel to Angkor Thom, which was the last capital of the Angkorian Empire and built by Angkor's greatest king, Jayavarman VII. The major attraction of Angkor Thom is the Bayon Temple, where you can marvel at the wise smiling faces. After, visit the Terrace of the Elephants. It was used as a giant reviewing stand for public ceremonies and served as a base for the King’s grand audience hall. Terrace of the Leper King is another of Angkor’s mysteries, the walls of which are deeply carved with seated deities. You will continue to Ta Prohm, a jungle clad temple offering a strange beauty as the stone works intertwine with jungle vines. For many this temple will be well known as it was featured in Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider. At 12:30 PM, it is time for an hours break for lunch. During this time, relax, enjoy your food and feel free to ask your guide any questions you have about your experiences from the morning. At 1:30 PM, you will continue your tour of the World Heritage Site and visit the famous Angkor Wat. Take your time to truly immense yourself in this historical monument. Angkor Wat was built around the first half of 12th century by King Suryavarman II. The temple's balance, composition and beauty make it one of the finest monuments in the world. The shear size of the monument makes it very overwhelming as it towers over the landscape and is breathtaking, especially at dawn. Towards the end of the afternoon, watch the sunset at Pre Rup, a Hindu temple built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman. This temple is very popular among the tourists for its sunset views. At 6:00 PM, your tour comes to an end and your guide will transfer you back to your hotel.

This was a wonderful day. The guide was explaining anything in detail, he also sensed, when I needed information and gave good hints what to do at the temples and what to avoid. Very helpful and I will hope, that once I am coming back, this will be the same experience again.

We were so glad we decided to book this tour and we were so incredibly lucky that we got Mr.D asbour guide. One day pass was perfect for getting tovsee the most important sights. We had our own mini Van with AC, driver regularly offered cold water. But the highlight of this tour was the guide, Mr. D! He made sure that we feel comfortable, got us to the right places at the right time. Gave us background to all the temples as took great pictures of us. He knew all the best places, best angles to get great photos. If you do decide to govwith this tour, make sure you get Mr. D! His English was also great, and during our tour webheard some other guides struggling with it. Totally recommend 5/5

Very impressive

Mr. Chain was a very good guide and even better photographer. He explained a lot and went from place to place at a comfortable pace. We finished just in time for the storm. There was no sunset. We were back at the hotel in time for dinner.
