Full description
At 5:00 AM, you will depart from your hotel with private transportation to the Angkor Wat Temple Complex. Here, you will purchase your temple pass and enter with your guide to witness a truly magical experience. Watch the sunrise over Cambodia’s most ancient and most respected monument – Angkor Wat.  Angkor Wat was built around the first half of the 12th century by King Suryavarman II. The temple's balance, composition and beauty make it one of the finest monuments in the world. The shear size of this monument makes it very overwhelming as it towers over the landscape.

The morning is then filled with visiting and enriching yourself with a number of temples within the ancient grounds. Starting with the Angkor Thom complex, your first stop will be Bayon. Built in the latter part of the 12th Century by King Jayavarman VII, Bayon is one of the most widely recognized temples in the Angkor Park because of the giant stone faces that adorn the towers of Bayon. There are 54 towers of faces with 4 faces on each tower, Bayon consists of 216 faces, a sight not to be missed. The next stop is Ta Prohm, a jungle clad temple that offers a strange beauty as the stone works intertwine with jungle vines. For many this temple will be well known as it was featured in Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider. At 12:00 PM, your tour comes to an end and your guide will transfer you back to your hotel.

Being at Angkor Wat for the sunrise was cool, but I think the real benefit was being there before it got super crowded. We stopped to get tickets along the way and didn't have to wait in line, which we had heard could get really long, but since it was 5:30am in the morning we walked right up to the ticket window. It was nice to have a private car with air conditioning and water available and our guide spoke English well and was very knowledgeable about all of the temples we stopped at. These temples are super touristy though so be prepared to wait for the "perfect picture spots" if you want some of the classic pictures. Also be prepared with comfy shoes, something to cover your shoulders & knees and a long day.

Friendly & knowledgeable guide

We had an enjoyable time with the guide who spoke quite well and gave us some especially good stories regarding the carvings on the walls of the temples that we went to see (we saw Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Phrom). The car and driver, and overall service was really good. He waited for us on multiple occasions as we dealt with a heavy young toddler who isn't really walking yet. Only thing I wished could have been done differently was that the guide could have been prepared to include one more stop given that on that day, we didn't stop for too long for breakfast in Angkor Wat, the Elephant Terrace and surrounds of Angkor Thom was closed for an event so we actually finished the tour slightly over an hour earlier than the promised 7 hours. It seemed to me as if the itinerary was fixed and has no flexibility.

We had a great day with our guide Thinh and our driver Vannee. Both were very kind and caring. Everything was very well organised and Thinh did a great job. He knows a lot about Angkor Wat and Khmer history and tried to take a less crowded route, whenever it was possible. We definitely recommend this tour, it's really worth it.
