What You Can Expect

Angkor Temples Small-Group Tour

Bas-relief at Bayon Temple

Depart from your Siem Reap hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and enjoy the scenic surroundings on your way to the Angkor region. Stop first at the majestic Angkor Wat, a structure considered the masterpiece of the entire Khmer empire; marvel at its reflective pools and vast moat, then stroll through the galleries to see impressive bas-reliefs (carvings) depicting scenes of Ramayana, an epic Hindu poem. 

Next, venture to Bayon to become hypnotized by the smiling stone faces of the temple. Gain fascinating insight into the temple’s ancient origin from your guide, hearing of vicious battles and attempting to decipher the intricate bas-reliefs that detail scenes of cockfighting and childbirth. 

Continue through the South Gate of Angkor Thom and marvel at the line of 54 gods and demons that create a dramatic spectacle beside the road. Revitalize with a locally prepared lunch of typical Cambodian specialties then conclude your tour with a stop at Ta Prohm, a mystical enclave in which tree roots intertwine with ancient ruins. 

Return to the minivan and relax during the journey back to your hotel in Siem Reap, where the tour concludes.

We had a great time. The temples were really beautiful. Kamara, our tour guide, was very nice and made sure no one in the group got lost. He and the driver also kept us hydrated by supplying us endlessly with cold water for free throughout the day. It was a welcome token considering the heat on the day of the tour.

Our small-group tour turned into a personalized tour by air conditioned car when the others in the group cancelled at the last minute. Our driver and our very informative tour guide, Mr. Vanny, made it a great day. Although Angkor Wat is the more famous, the tour of the 13th century Khmer capital, Angkor Thom, was equally breathtaking as was the stifling heat. Lunch at a local restaurant is included. Very local cuisine, although we're guessing it was slightly Westernized for the clientele.
Tips: Stay hydrated. There is plenty of walking and some stairs. Also, in Siem Reap, everything is priced in US dollars. Locals actually have to use a calculator to figure out the local currency when you try to use it.

Great tour. Recommend the small group tour. Small group allows you to meet the fellow travelers but also get better info from the guide. Bring water and sunscreen.
