Amazing tour with two very special tour guides! Day 1 was guided by Sen, he was very informative and seemed to really enjoy his job! He knew pretty much everything you could want to know about the 4 temples we visited. I highly recommend asking questions as well! Our second day was hosted by T and he was also a very kind and outgoing guide! We took a trip to Tonle Sap Lake and watched the sunset. I would recommend both tours to travelers visiting Siem Reap. I will say, they do allow you too take many photos but sometimes that does get in the way, but the guides don’t mind if you wander from the group periodically so I’d say make sure you prioritize whatever you wish yo do!!

Luckily a well-known tour guide Vuthy. The organization was very good again, we were picked up on time and arrived at the temple on time for sunrise. Top Tour Guide - Vuthy made a good selection of temples that he thinks are worth seeing. In addition, he always took beautiful pictures of the participants, so that beautiful memories were created. He was always nice, friendly, helpful & we had a very good time with him! Again and again :)

Excellent tour. Vuthy aka Mr T is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and he kept the energy levels up throughout the tour. He managed to help all of us get some amazing pictures and his sense of humour was also good. Special shoutout to ‘Adam’ our driver who drove very safely and ensured we were all comfortable and hydrated/cool the entire tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Beautiful way to start the day with the sunrise over Angkor Wat! Vuthy (Mr. T) was very knowledgeable and funny! The experience was unforgettable.
