The largest and most famous temple is Angkor Wat. Today, Angkor Wat is depicted on Cambodia’s national flag as the temple symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people. Come and discover this must-see attraction and seize the opportunity to learn about the heart of the Cambodian culture through our storyteller tour at Siem Reaper. The tour takes you on a spiritual and educational journey around the temples. During this tour, you will visit the legendary temples such as Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prom and enjoy multiple attractions lead by our educational tour guides.
Through the tour, you will bike down narrow dirt lanes around Angkor complex and explore the hidden temples covered by jungle.
Start the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.
Head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the centre of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.
We will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.
Lastly, we will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your storytelling guide, you will be memorised by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.

Great locally owned company
Simply a fabulous trip with incredible guides. The bikes were in pristine condition and finding almost private trails through Angkor Wat made it an unforgettable experience. Our guide was hilarious, personable, passionate about showing us his country, very knowledgeable and super energetic. I highly recommend Siem Reaper as a company for intimate bike tours of the Angkor Wat area.
We LOVED our tours with our guide Prathna. He helped us craft a customized itinerary to fit our wants/needs, and he had fantastic recommendations for how to avoid crowds and get off the beaten path at Angkor Wat. He was a fantastic guide, very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. Prathna had a special knack for taking us to less-touristy and authentic-feeling locations, and he always made us feel safe and taken care of. Overall, we had a fantastic experience that we will never forget. And we strongly recommend supporting local small businesses like this in Siem Reap – to help contribute more into the local community!
