My wife and I had a great time on this adventure that was full of info, some tips and 'secrets' as well as generally had a great time with the host/guide Pol (aka Mr Friday!). It was made especially special because we were the only guests on the tour, picked up by private 'limousine' at our hotel Templation, driving off towards Tonle Sap lake, stopping at a restaurant famous for the Lotus Flowers it also cultivates - learning why the Lotus is such an important flower, how versatile it is. We also heard the tales of the bloody civil war and at times tense situation between the Khmer and Vietnamese families of the lake. Living as they have been for decades, the 900 or so families living on the lake are Vietnamese, yet have no passports and are granted to stay on the lake by the Cambodian government. Had a thrilling time seeing the Crocodiles of the Croc farm before getting to the Queen Tara where we enjoyed our dinner and free flow beverages/alcohol watching the sunset.
The driver was lovely and took us to all of the highlights. The only small issue was he didn’t quite understand us when we made a couple of requests to see different temples... his basic understanding of English was great, but a bit of a communication breakdown for anything outside of the norm (we wanted to see some of the lesser frequented temples as my friend had been to Angkor before).
Great trip with pick up working well and nice guide and driver (Sag). As it was very hot the lunch break was rather long - as we are more active we would have prefered to maybe visit an other temple/sight in the park (but that is personal preference). The sunset spot is ok but crowded and not overwhelming (you don't see Angkor Wat). The refreshing towels the driver gave us were great.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a deep understanding of the history of Angkor Wat. Both made sure we were hydrated, as the temperatures were extremely high. We would highly recommend this tour.
Knowledgeable guide. Much value for money. Water and tissues provided. Most important temples visited. Was a long day in the heat though but the tour was 10/10.
