Chanmol, our group leader, provided a fantastic experience in terms of allowing us to be in awe of the most beautiful Angkor Wat complex as well as enjoy Siem Reap. He has a great knowledge of the area in terms of its history, and is very good at engaging his audience. Considering members of our tour were aged between 20s-60s, no one felt left out. He knew where the best places were to take pictures, and this was of great significance, expecially for someone like myself who loves photography. Definitely loved every minute.
The hotel, City River was great. Definitely felt better than a 3 star experience. I would certainly recommend it. The location of the hotel was fantastic and the staff are wonderful.
My wife, daughter, and I arrived in Siem Reap a day early, so we got to see the town a bit before the tour. For the tour, we had a truly wonderful guide, Chanmol. He was prompt each morning, courteous, and respectful, both to us and others. He knew the history of the region, having grown up in a village outside Siem Reap, and he understood the culture of the city, the surrounding villages, and the lake. He had a good command of English, all the more remarkable because he largely taught himself. And importantly, he was respectful of all the different religions represented by the images in the various temples. Truly a wonderful individual.
As for the sights, they are hard to describe in words. The architecture of the temples is documented in so many pictures, but what really stood out to me were the detailed carvings covering nearly every floor, wall, and ceiling. Some of these told stories, others were merely patterns with embedded images of Buddha or other deities, kings, or animals. Just remarkable in the complexity and detail. My favorite temple was Prasat Banteay Srei north of the city. This temple is smaller than the others, but exceptionally well preserved. We were there near sunset when the light was perfect...just beautiful. The hike in the mountains to see the wall carvings was good, but I might have skipped the nature conservatory...a bit long and hot.
Overall I give this tour 5 stars, but I might have given it only 4 without Chanmol as a guide. He really made the three days a special memory for all of us.
