Although we booked a group tour, we were blessed to be the only two going on the tour for the day. We enjoyed a very detailed commentary on the Angkor Complex by Mr Sokpee Sumsot. He is very knowledge and was able to answer all our queries. He also shared tips on where to take nice photos, especially of the sunrise. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Angkor Wat with so few tourists, and I highly urge you to visit before the crowds return. You will not regret it!

I booked the sunrise tour of Angkor Wat last minute, and Journey Cambodia was able to accommodate me. Communication the day prior to the tour was excellent through email and WhatsApp. I found my tour guide Sam at my hotel at the instructed time. He speaks very good English and has a wealth of knowledge about Angkor Wat as well as Khmer history and gave our group very good insight into Khmer culture. He also pointed out good photo spots and made sure we got the photos we wanted! He also frequently communicated the itinerary for the day so that we knew what to anticipate and gave us bathroom breaks at clean Western bathrooms. We visited the main temple and 2 other temples throughout the morning, traveling in a comfortable air conditioned van. The driver Usa was always available to provide a cold water bottle and wet towel with a smile. I highly recommend Journey Cambodia and would definitely take another tour with them in the future if I find myself back in Cambodia!

This tour was so good that halfway through the first day I booked a second day with the same tour group to see even more temples. Our guide Mr. Bun was incredibly knowledgeable and had great tips not only for Angkor Wat, but for tourism in general in Siem Reap. I especially appreciate his attention to good times to visit each temple taking lighting for photos and the heat into account. He pays attention to all the details that make the day special, and the driver handed out plenty of bottles of cold water as the day went along. Can't recommend enough!
