Nice way to experience Angkor Wat

This tour was well planned and executed. The pickup was on time and we picked up the Angkor Wat pass on the way. We saw the sunrise from outside the moat area and walked inside the complex later. Got a decent breakfast and Right, our tour guide, showed us around the temple and explained the architecture details. It was well paced and not rushed at all. From there we picked our mountain bikes and biked towards Bayon temple through the local villages and stopping along the high walls of inside the moat few times. After the tour of Bayon we had a delicious plate of tropical fruits served and it was really good amidst the rising temperatures. We biked towards a the famous Ta Prohm and Ta Nei where we could spend a good amount of time enjoying the timeless ruins. The lunch spot was picked by our tour guide and we were dropped back at our hostel. A good tour.

Angkor sunrise bike tour.

Me and my partner booked this tour through our hotel and certainly were not disappointed. Our guide, Ben and driver Ven were excellent throughout. We loved getting off the beaten track and away from the busy crowds. We hit the temples at just the right times all down to Ben’s local knowledge. The cycling through the jungle was amazing, we even caught sight of two elephants, Ben knew just the right spot. Ven was on hand at every stop with fresh local fruit and snacks and the two stops for breakfast and lunch were just the right start and end to a busy day.
I would say if you are short on time and want to miss some of the crowds with an excellent guide and driver, this is the tour for you.

Unforgettable experience exploring the Small Circuit at Angkor on bikes!

Exploring the temples of Angkor has been on my bucket-list for some time – and this incredible tour far surpassed all my hopes and expectations! We were met by our guide, Ben, at our hotel in Wat Bo while it was still dark and travelled to Angkor by tuk-tuk, first to buy our pass and then on to Angkor Wat.

Arriving at the temple in the dark, I felt that the air was heavy with excitement and anticipation to get a first glimpse of Angkor Wat at first light. Ben took us to a fantastic viewing spot, slightly elevated to avoid the crowds and get a good view of the temple. We passed the time chatting to Ben about the history of the temple and life and Cambodia. He is incredibly knowledgeable about Angkor and passionate about Siem Reap and it felt that the three of us had been friends for years!

It was beautiful to see the temple emerge in the dawn. Once the sun was up we then spent time exploring the temple with Ben pointing out interesting facts and insights answering our many questions.

After a hearty breakfast we picked up our bikes and started cycling, first heading to Angkor Thom passing through a local village. Inside Angkor Thom we took a cycle route off the beaten track – it was just us and nature and no other people for a long stretches – incredibly peaceful.

There after we stopped at Bayon, and Ta Nei – both incredible. The detail and intricacy of the bas relief carvings at Bayon blew my mind. Ta Nei is a smaller temple and what made it special for me was that there were very few tourists there so we could explore and snap pics at our leisure. Ben played photographer for us and aside from being a top-class tour guide, he is also a super photographer! We also were lucky to spot a family of gibbons chilling in the trees.

Our final temple stop was Ta Prohm. The temple is stunning, with enormous Spung tree roots wrapping themselves around the ruins and towering over the site. It is a very popular site (thanks Tomb Raider!) so be prepared to fight the crowds.

At this stage we were pretty hungry and devoured one of the most delicious fish Amoks I ate while in Cambodia.

We finished the day feeling exhausted (cycling is hard work, especially if you are not used to being on a bike!) but elated. Ben was a phenomenal guide and we cannot recommend him highly enough. The tour is planned carefully to give tourists the best experience without having to fight the crowds, and drink and snacks to quench our thirst and replenish our energy levels. Thank you, Ben, for such an incredible experience, we had the best time!

Incredible experience!

Toured on 05/01/20 with the team of Trevor (tuk tuk driver) and Chum (guide). All I can say is WOW!!! First off, Angkor Wat and the surrounding area is remarkable, but you probably already know that in reading about this tour. We were picked up promptly at 4:40am at our hotel and traveled by tuk tuk to the ticket counter and then to the entrance to Angkor Wat. Walked across the footing bridge into the property to settle into a spot to watch sunrise over the Wat. After that beautiful experience (marred by the number of smart phones trying to capture instead of experience the gift), we toured the temple and Chum gave us a great Khmer, Buddhist and Hindu history lesson. He was able to answer just about EVERY question we had all day!! After a light breakfast, it was off on the bikes. None of the “legs” of the ride were too long but be aware this tour requires 1) good comfort on a bike and 2) decent physical shape as you’re working through sand, bumps and more to get from spot to spot. After visiting Angkor Thom and several others we stopped for a snack and then several guides started speaking in a very animated way with one another. Gibbon monkeys had made their way from the deep jungle into the park so we spent a bit of time at that spot observing nature instead of the ruins. Loved it! After finishing our ride we were treated to a lovely 5-course lunch (wow!) including fresh spring rolls, sour chicken soup, pork and eggplant, morning glories with garlic and a fresh fruit plate (they were already sold out of the sweet pumpkin that was supposed to come with the meal). The restaurant has a social/cause approach and the staff was kind and accommodating. On the tuk tuk ride back to our hotel, we chatted with Chum about his experience. I would LOVE to tour with Chum again and highly recommend the organized approach the Siam Reaper takes to planning tours. Their use of WhattsApp was great for communicating. One thing to note, we booked through TakeMeTour where it lists that park admission is included. This is a typo so you DO need to pay for your entrance to Angkor Wat ($36 USD for a 1-day pass as of the time of writing this review). I did communicate both with Siam Reaper and TakeMeTour about this and felt the communication was very good. Highly recommend!!

Perfect way to see Angkor Wat

Our guide Prathna Son was excellent. If you can ask for him. He is an ex-monk who lived in Angkor Wat from the age of 14 to 21. He has excellent English and a passion for his country. The tour was great because we got to see the sunrise over the temple and then immediately after went inside. We left by 8:30 when most tourists (especially the Chinese busloads) start coming. Seeing the rest of the complex by bike allowed us to get some exercise and see parts of the complex that others didn’t.
