The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its perfection in composition, balance, proportions, and sculptural detail make it one of the finest monuments ever constructed.

This trip was a great way to pack a lot of sightseeing into a day, along with gaining fascinating knowledge of Cambodia's history and culture. Our guide Makara and driver October kept things moving on schedule but it never seemed rushed. This was a great way to see all the major sights in Angkor Wat in a limited time and learn a lot about them. Makara helped put it all into perspective with his amazing knowledge of the history and culture.

Amazing tour of Angkor Wat! if you are lucky enough to get Sean you're in for a treat! he's knowledgeable and funny as well as an excellent photographer. Seeing these temples was a dream come true, and it was wonderful to have a guide explaining every single detail. It was great for a history nerd like me. I highly recommend this tour & Sean. He went out of his way to ensure I was having a great experience.

We had a great and day at the Angkor temples with out tour guide Sareik. He told us a lot about the history and meaning of the Temples. We went with a airco cooled van, got cooled water and lemongrass towels on board and we had a surprise at the end of the tour. Strongly recommended when you want to have a great and nice day at the Angkor temples

The experience was a truly enjoyable one. Our guide, Mr. Sean was very knowledgeable and passionate. We did not feel rushed and could enjoy the many sites at leisure. Our driver, Mr. Sothea made us feel safe throughout and did his best to make us feel comfortable with cold water and wet towels at every stop. Highly recommended.

The tour was great, we can only recommend it! Our Guide Cheansean explained us a lot of history. We had everywhere enough time to explore and take fotos
