60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat was built between 1113-1150 AD and dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation. It's the best preserved of all the temples. Its layout and its scale are simply breathtaking, the wall surrounding the enclosure measures 1,000 by 800 meters and the moat, said to represent the oceans of the world is 200 meters wide. Angkor Wat is an architectural allegory of the mythical Mount Meru in the center of the world (Himalaya). This amazing temple homes the longest continuous bas relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Angkor Thom South Gate
We also explore the Angkor Thom complex. Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high and 13km in length contain many monuments. Inside the walls the king, his relatives and officials, military officers and priests took residence, the rest of the people lived outside of the great enclosure, between the two artificial lakes. Our visit will begin with the South Gate, a beautiful introduction to Angkor Thom with well-restored statues of Asuras (demons) and gods lining the bridge.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Bayon Temple
Inside the complex, we will first visit the Bayon with 200 endless smiling faces. This temple mountain situated in the center of Angkor Thom City where sets the Bayon apart from many other Angkor monuments.

50 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Ta Prohm Temple
and then we continue the tour to Ta Phrom was a monastery built by the king Jayavarman VII as a residence for his mother as well as a school.

Ta Phrom has been controversially left to the destructive power of the jungle by French archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature. It has been largely consumed by the jungle and as you will climb through the dilapidated stone structures you will see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. At every turn you will expect to see Indiana Jones (Lara Croft) step out from behind a fallen pillar around you.

This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel or any requested drop off point within the city center.

Incredible sunrise tour!
emilygR1687WC, 11-09-2022
Tak was the most incredible tour guide, we went to this tour on birthday and I really could not have asked for a better way to spend the morning. The temples themselves are stunning and it was so incredible to learn from Tak, but who has a real depth of knowledge on Cambodia history - highly recommended!!

Absolutely excellent. Nak our tour guide was eloquent and insightful, giving us the best trip we could have imagined. The sunrise over Angkor Wat was worth the early start, and the tour in general was spot on. Highly recommend Nak as a guide!

Helpful communication. Pick up on time. Knowledgeable tour. Sunrise was nice, but not mind blowing. Would recommend. Our guide Sorphea was really helpful.
Absolutely wonderful experience. Well worth the early rise.

Not overly one for reviews, but this trip and guide were so good it was worth reviewing.
I booked this trip the day before I was due to go. It is an early start it must be said, and whilst half asleep I was met by my guide Mr. Phy, a friendly local. He was very knowledgeable about the temples in which we visited and always open to questions. My initial thought was I was going to hate the trip due to being up so early but Mr Phy the whole experience a thoroughly enjoyable. The views were amazing and Mr.Phy was happy to stop and take pictures throughout to which there were quite a lot of opportunities. Mr.Phy also at times suggested other photo opportunities which when looking back at made for really class pictures. I would most definitely recommend this trip and the guide who was serious when telling the history but also funny throughout which was a nice mixture, especially with the early start.
