What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Angkor Wat and The Royal Temples Full-Day Tour from Siem Reap

Private Tour: Angkor Wat and The Royal Temples Full-Day Tour from Siem Reap

Meet your private driver and friendly guide at your hotel before heading out on your Full-Day Tour from Siem Reap. Your memorable tour kicks off at Angkor Thom City’s South Gate, where you’ll learn about the 54 demons that line the road. Your professional guide will share stories about the UNESCO-listed site where remains of the former Khmer Empire date back to as early as the 9th century. The itinerary is flexible and guides can tailor the trip to traveler interests. 
Take in the splendor of Bayon, located at the center of this great walled city. You can explore on your own, or follow your guide, who will highlight features like the 200 stone faces that surround the center. 
Next you’ll venture to the three-tiered temple of Baphon. Built in the 11th century and recently restored, Baphon was made as an homage to the Hindu god Shiva. You’ll spend about two hours in Angkor Thom, where you’ll wander through the Royal Enclosure and Phimeanakas. Check out the Terrace of Elephants and the Terrace of Leper Kinds before tucking into traditional cuisine in front of the famed Angkor Wat.
Arguably the most famous of these temple ruins, Angkor Wat is a sight to behold. You’ll have time to explore your surroundings with your guide, who will share stories and details about this 12th century Khmer ceremonial structure. Spend an afternoon wandering the galleries where carvings tell stories from the story Ramayana, and take in the peaceful reflecting pools and giant moat that are just part of what makes Angkor Wat unique.
Once you’ve finished taking in the temples, head back to your Siem Reap hotel in your private, air-conditioned vehicle.

Siv, my tour guide for this tour, was so professional that made my very first trip to the Angkor Compounds.
His broad and deep knowledge on those great temples including Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat brought me a lot of inspiration.
He's calm, friendly and smiling confidently while answering all that you want to know.
Definitely I would like to appoint him our tour guide on my next visit in Seam Reap with my family.

Our guide Ran and driver were prompt and courteous, car was immaculate and comfortable, driver maneuvered us to the destinations quickly. The Tour was adjusted to fit our schedule when Ran learned that we had visited Angkor Thom on our cruise ship excursion the previous day. We went to the amazing Preah Khan ruins, a site not included on many tours and less busy. After an outstanding lunch, he was also able to adjust the schedule to take us to the Angkor Wat museum in the afternoon - a good way to end the day in a cool setting that provides a lot of historical background and interactive media on the sites visited in the morning. Advantages of our independent tour over our cruise ship excursion - quick transit, no lengthy bathroom stops, able to hear the information, ask questions and move at a pace that allowed us more time at sites that we enjoyed.
