Itinerary

The guide will pick up you at 8 am from your hotel and we will start this day with exploring the temples of UNESCO listed Angkor National Park, the World Heritage site and it's the World Largest Religious Monument. Pay the entrance fee on your own account at the ticket office where we will stop for you to buy one and make your way with the guide to the first stop at Angkor Wat to visit the largest and most impressive of all Angkor temples, considered among one of the 7th Wonders of the World. 

Angkor Wat was built between 1113-1150 AD and dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation. It's the best preserved of all the temples. Its layout and its scale are simply breathtaking, the wall surrounding the enclosure measures 1,000 by 800 meters and the moat, said to represent the oceans of the world is 200 meters wide. Angkor Wat is an architectural allegory of the mythical Mount Meru in the center of the world (Himalaya). This amazing temple homes the longest continuous bas relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls.

We also explore the Angkor Thom complex. Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high and 13km in length contain many monuments. Inside the walls the king, his relatives and officials, military officers and priests took residence, the rest of the people lived outside of the great enclosure, between the two artificial lakes. Our visit will begin with the South Gate, a beautiful introduction to Angkor Thom with well-restored statues of Asuras (demons) and gods lining the bridge. Inside the complex, we will first visit the Bayon with 200 endless smiling faces. This temple mountain situated in the center of Angkor Thom City where sets the Bayon apart from many other Angkor monuments and we will continue to the Elephant Terrace, which owes its name to its outstanding depiction of these animals and the Terrace of Leper King, which presents a magnificent sculpture, popularly known as the leper king and then we continue the tour to Ta Phrom was a monastery built by the king Jayavarman VII as a residence for his mother as well as a school.

Ta Phrom has been controversially left to the destructive power of the jungle by French archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature. It has been largely consumed by the jungle and as you will climb through the dilapidated stone structures you will see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. At every turn you will expect to see Indiana Jones (Lara Croft) step out from behind a fallen pillar around you.

This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel or any requested drop off point within the city center.

Wonderful guide and tour!

Nak, the tour guide was phenomenal! He was so knowledgeable, easy to understand/enjoy and also a wonderful photographer. He was so willing to take all the best photos for me. He also knows his way around the temples and secured me the best views with the least crowds. Wonderful visit to Angkor Wat!

Une journée bien remplie !

Nak est un guide fantastique! Il connaît énormément d'histoires intéressantes sur les différents sites. C'est une personne sympathique, énergique et très drôle. Il sait aussi vous laisser le temps d'apprécier tout en étant très disponible! Si vous êtes vraiment intéressé par l'histoire du Cambodge, n'hésitez pas à lui poser des questions! Je le recommande à 100%

Amazing history

We had our first tour of Angkor Wat with a very knowledgeable guide, Vantha. I knew little of the history of the area. Our guide shared a wealth of knowledge from different Khmer periods. He was very easy to understand as his English was excellent and his pronunciation spot on. The temples were amazing of course. I also appreciated that the guide set the pace according to our physical abilities, especially as the heat increased in the afternoon. We moved from site to site on a Tuktuk, which was a fun way to travel.

The temples are stunning! Really worth it a visit!

It is stunning, an incredible view and history. It’s definitely worth it to hire a tour guide so you can go deeper into the history as there is so much to see, to hear and learn about. We went with two young children. Our tour guide was great and helped to make the experience well worth it. I wouldn’t advise to take a stroller as there are many steps - doable for kids but for very small ones, a backpack kid’s carrier is better. Visit all the temples, as they are different to each other, with its own history and one more beautiful than the other. We found the city of Angkor Wat over priced with everything being charged in dollars - in my opinion they are missing an opportunity to show Cambodia’s true history and culture.

Over all a good tour.

Good . It was supposed to be a mini group trip. But since no was there it turned out to be a private tour. The tour guide Sathi did a good job. Always smiling. He was friendly and did a crisp job. Worth the money we paid.
