This was an amazing tour! Our guide Sam was so knowledgable and spoke very good English so we could really converse. The van was big and comfortable. Our driver Sol was great and always there to pick up us promptly. I have walking issues and Sam was so patient and always helping me on the stairs and finding me shade as it was very hot! They supplied cold water whenever we got in the car and the air conditioning was a life saver! I highly recommend this tour. You see and learn so much about the temples, I was too tired and opted out of the sunset on the peak but had fantastic day and will never forget this amazing experience!
Excelent tour, excelent guide, excelent lunch, worth the money, highly recommended !
Our tour guide was Mr Se Vannsak and he was the best tour guide we've had in the 7 tours we booked on our SE Asian vacation. He was incredibly knowledgeable on Angkor and the entire Cambodian history from that period to the present.
What makes him exceptional is his ability to tell the history of Angkor in more of a story telling way instead of just a rehearsed set of facts from a brochure like other guides. His English was also very good and we had no problems understanding him at all.
Recommendation: While going over the day's itinerary at the beginning of the tour, make sure you will be getting the sunset viewing. Our tour ended before sunset but I was ok with that since it had already been a long and hot day with my elderly parents and very young kids. Also, the tour is very common there are two circuits for the main Angkor site and provided by a whole lot of tour companies so you will find many cheaper options with the exact same itinerary in Siem Reap. But ultimately I felt ok with paying more since I found out more about how Viator screens out bad tour companies through its reviews, so you have a much higher chance with Viator of getting an excellent tour guide as opposed to mediocre one.
Having a private guide to show me around the Angkor complex on my one full day in Siem Reap was awesome, and totally the best way to go for me. The complex is large and the distances between the temples are not quickly walkable, so it was perfect to have someone to drive me to the different locations and explain everything I was looking at. My guide was Som I'm probably misspelling that, sorry - maybe it's Sahm? and our driver was Mr. Le. They were both so friendly and kind. Som was very knowledgeable about the history of Cambodia and of the Angkor temples, and he was able to explain everything very well, and answer any question I had. Som coordinated all day with Mr. Le so that we entered each temple on one side, and Mr. Le was waiting with the car on another side. Mr. Le always had the cool air conditioning running in the car, and a new bottle of cold water. Midway through the day, they took me to a cute local restaurant for a Khmer lunch I think it was called Khmer Wooden House. Note the lunch is included with the tour, but you're responsible for your own drink. They had their own lunch elsewhere, so I met up with them when I was done and we continued sightseeing. Som and I walked a lot and he showed me everything I wanted to see, but since it was just me and not a slower group of people, we were able to see everything rather quickly. We still had time before the sunset, so they took me into a nearby village to show me how local silk scarves are made by hand, and how local silver is engraved. It was a nice detour, and I appreciated the thought and creative solution to fill time. We went back to the Angkor complex and Som walked me to the top of the hill to watch the sunset. He went back down the hill and was there waiting for me to take me back to my hotel afterward. Overall, this was an excellent tour and I highly recommend booking through this company.
Amazing tour and well worth the guide. Narayan was super knowledgeable and gave a lot of valuable insight. The trip was so amazing song thanks to him. Bring comfortable hiking shoes and sunscreen. Other than that book it. It's really awesome.

Amazing, Our guide Khis was knowledgeable and helpful, Angkor Wat was stunning and the real jewel in the crown to our visit to Angkor.
The Angkor temples are grand and spectacular and it was a fantastic visit! The trip went without a hitch and were well taken care of by our guide and driver.
Amazing tour of the Ta Prohm, Bayon and Angkor Wat temples. Savoum was our tour guide and explained to us the temples history. Lunch was great. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic day at Angkor Wat. The tour guide was friendly and well informed. He answered all questions.
We also enjoyed the lunch which was beyond expectations.

I was with my mother and aunt, who are both in their 80s the guide Savoun and driver Hong were very patient and helped my mum a lot especially in climbing up and down the steps and walkways! We managed to visit Bayon, Ta Prohm Tomb Raider and of course, Angkor Wat. At Ta Prohm, because there was already a huge crowd at the entrance, the guide actually took us on a reverse route so that we don't have to jostle with the crowds! Because there's a long distance to walk in order to reach the gardens surrounding Angkor Wat, the guide spoke to the gatekeepers so that we could drive right though almost to the steps leading up to Angkor Wat. Kudos to the guide and driver!
