A must when visiting Siam caterpillar! The mood at dawn and at sunrise is unique. Sam, our guide, is a walking encyclopedia, he knows a lot about history and the current situation, a staunch Cambodian with some personal experience from the Khmer Rouge era. For us it was just a bit "too much information", but that's a personal perception.

Sokspee was the best tour guide ever, he had so much knowledge and spoke great English and also made the whole group laugh with his great sense of humour. I would highly recommend Sokspee and enjoyed the tour of Angkor Wat immensely. The tour itself was perfect to see the main highlights of Angkor Wat without experiencing temple fatigue, I’m happy I chose this tour to view the magnificent temples. Even though we didn’t get a sunrise (due to being too cloudy) it was good to be up early and start fresh before the heat was too much, we stopped for breakfast as well which was perfect. Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide, Sumsot, knew a lot about the temples and the stories behind them. He gave us time to walk around and take pictures, and whenever I had a question he answered in great detail. The tour took us to three different temples, the most popular ones, and we were able to learn a lot about each of them. If there is some information that is not interesting to you, you can wander around and take photos. At around 8am, after sunrise and Angkor Wat temple, they took us to a nice place for lunch and break before we went to explore the two other temples. If you are into history and would like to learn more than just the basics, this is the tour for you
