Angkor Wat: Private 2-Day Temples Tour with Sunset & Sunrise
- Pickup available
- Duration: 2 days
- Private group
Really good tour. The company was on time for pick-up and we could get a good spot to see Angkor Wat during sunset. For the remaining time, we saw all main temples on the Angkor complex and took many good pictures. Our guide was particularly good for that! As feedback, the tour did not last as originally stated. For day 1 we were supposed to finish at 13 hrs; instead we were heading back by 11:40 am; we did not get enough time to appreciate the Bayon temple as we were rushing to the van to head back to the hotel. On day 2 we were heading at 3:30 but we could've stayed more in my opinion. As an advice to fellow travelers, I would spare an additional day to go back to the temples you liked the most (or to other additional temples, as there are many) either on your own or with a private guide.
Our guide,Sokphy, made the trip intetesting with the story behind the temples: the history, religion, culture, Cambodian language. Also he gave us a choice and explain various options to go agaist the massive tourists flow, and showed spots with great pictures. We have many good pictures without tons of other tourists. The driver, Mong, is also great with cold towels and water ready at hands whenever we come back to the car. He also took our lunch and breakfast that any passengers brought along ready at the breakfast / restaurants area. Highly recommend 2 day tour instead of jam pack in one 8-hrs days when it hot.
It would have been excellent, if the sun rised without clouds!!! We woke up early and took our place right across the golden temple and waited! But it was a very cloudy day so never so the sun rising behind the temple. We're there during the Corona virus outbreak so the number of tourists were down but still it was packed! After that it was awesome!
We recommend the two day private tour. You are able to do everything at your own pace and have an ac vehicle to return to between temples (especially helpful for children and seniors). We had a senior and a transfer in our group and everyone enjoyed it Our guide was phal and driver Seth. Both very nice men who made us feel welcome!
Phal- our guide was very very good. Showed us best places for pictures (which he also offered to take) and we seemed to avoid the crowds and had ample time to explore the various temples. Lunch was good as well. Journey Cambodia was local company used
