We had an amazing time with Sokpee (guide) and Sal (driver)! It's really worth doing the tour as the park is sooo big and there's so many things to see, with a guide you understand better the monument and you know where to look/where to take pictures. Sokpee was great and answered all our questions, Sal prepared water and a much needed fresh cloth for when we came back to the van. The sunset is not as impressive as you could expect from the (photoshopped) pictures on social media but it is still a unique experience. The plus side to start early is also that the weather is much more bearable (it gets really hot in the afternoon). We also had a fun group and met later for a drink. It's definitely an experience we'll remember!

The guided tour provided the best in direction and information. Our guide taught us about Cambodian culture and history with an easy going style of story telling. We can’t recommend this tour enough for enjoying the richness that is Angkor Wat and the surrounding structures. And even though on our day it was cloudy and so the sunrise muted, taking the sunrise tour was completely magical.

Wow what an experience! This was one of the most intense but rewarding tours I’ve ever done. Our tour Saruon Pal did not stop and helped us to see 9 temples over the whole morning. He had a wealth of knowledge and was super experienced at taking photos and took so many amazing photos of us throughout the tour. Highly recommend doing this tour if you want to do and see as much as possible in a short time!
