Half-day private tour of Angkor Wat
Eat lunch at a Khmer restaurant
Explore a temple complex that's a symbol of Cambodia
Meet a driver at your hotel in Siem Riep for 9am or 2pm departure, then travel to Angkor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that sprawls through 154 square miles of jungle (400 sq. km.).
Head straight for the site’s most important destination, Angkor Wat, built by a Khmer king in the early 12th century. If you’ve opted for an afternoon tour, pause for a hearty Khmer lunch before entering the temple complex, otherwise, cross the grand moat that guards the temple walls.
With so much to see inside the enormous temple complex it’s easy to miss the details, but you’ll have the flexibility of a private guide as you explore. Find Buddhist shrines alongside Hindu imagery, then climb into the central tower to see the extraordinary relief carvings that adorn each wall.
As you walk, the guide will share stories from Angkor Wat’s long history, and describe how a Hindu temple became an important Buddhist shrine.
If you’re touring Angkor Wat in the morning, end the day with lunch at a nearby Khmer restaurant. This 4-hour tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel in Siem Riep.

We had been warned about the high heat, humidity by other friends and so opted for early AM half day tours with private guide so we could do at our pace and spread tours over 4 days and so glad that we did it this way. It is quite reasonable and guide and driver both solicitous to our needs. We had the same guide and driver for all the days so other tours so that was great. The only thing that we had to contest before we left home is that the tour operator tried to change us to a Tuk Tuk from what we had arranged through Viator which was for air conditioned car with water. So please check your emails from this tour operator and be sure that they do not try to change what you have ordered and pre-paid. It was finally settled through Viator and emails to operator.
