I am happy to say that Siem Reaper made my trip amazing all the places I went and the activities I did were outstanding. I did the Angkor cycling adventure in 5 Days. Overall I was very happy with the experience and would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Cambodia by bike. Our guide (Sokvuth) spoke excellent English and he was very helpful when telling me about his countries and the places we were going to see. He answered my many questions, thereby establishing a good relationship. The trails he took were lovely and I learnt things I wouldn’t have otherwise known and visited places off the beaten track that would have been difficult to otherwise access. The hotel I stayed in was excellent facilities including the breakfasts. The bicycle was the best quality of mountain bike. The people of Cambodia are very friendly and we never had a problem finding someone who speaks English. The countries are beautiful and many of the sites especially Angkor Wat are awe-inspiring. Thanks Siem Reaper and guides – you did well and I thoroughly enjoyed my trip.
This was my second time visiting Siem Reap but this time I was with my new girlfriend and it was her birthday. Three years ago, I decided to walk through Ankor Wat on my own with no guide. It was fun but I wanted this trip to be different. I was skeptical about getting a guide but I found a guided countryside bike ride with a tour of Ankor Wat.
First off, I cannot say enough how satisfied I was with this tour. It was an amazing day. I highly recommend this tour and our tour guide named Prathna Son. He was a former monk in Ankor Wat and is extremely knowledgeable in the history, religion, politics and current state of his beloved country. He stopped being a monk to get a job to help support his parents. His calm and relaxed demeanor was a big part of why this tour was great. I not only consider him my tour guide but also a friend. I hope others get the chance to learn from him.
Our day started at the main temple to watch the sunrise followed by breakfast. Then we embarked on our countryside bike ride. Prathna stopped anytime we wanted to take a picture or rest. It was a full day trip. We biked the countryside and stopped to tour the temples, then ate lunch and biked back. The bikes were in excellent condition and were well suited for the terrain.
Nice tour to see spectacular views in Siem Reap. Visited many amazing places and temples. Hot but fun with my private tour guide.
Great moments of total immersion in local customs and traditions with a young guide who loves his country! I recommend it to all those who love travel and seek discovery and total change of scenery! Thank you 1000 times for this unique experience
Everything was exceptional and exceeded our hopes and expectations. Our tour guide, Prathna, was so incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and hilarious. The temples are stunning and so well-preserved. The mountain bikes were top-notch and easily handled the trails though the jungle. The trails were easy with only a few, small challenging hills that could be easily walked if necessary. We saw monkeys and elephants and still had plenty of time to stop for pictures and to explore the temples. They provided fresh fruit for snacks. The lunch was delicious and the softs drink so refreshing after the 15 mile ride. We could do this tour over and over also never feel bored during the tour. definitely recommend this adventure!
