Ta Prohm is one of visitors' favorite sites, as it has been partially retaken by the jungle, giving it a beauty and tranquility all its own.

The temple city of Angkor was the greatest metropolis in the world when London was just a village, and on this trip you'll see some of its greatest sites. Your first destination would be Pre Rup, an unbelievable Angkor site. After that, head to East Mebon, then on to the beautiful overgrown temple Ta Som, then the island shrine of Neak Pean. After that, it's off to Preah Khan, a temple at Angkor built in the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. Whichever option you choose, this private Tuk-Tuk tour will give you direct communication with our manager from the moment you receive a confirmation e-mail.
