This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Angkor Wat, Sangkat Nokor Thum, Siem Reap Cambodia

Your own Tuk Tuk and guide wait for you in the early morning at your booked hotel in Siem Reap and head to the main gate of the Angkor temples and make your early morning stop to see the sunrise. Arguably the largest religious building in the world, with a volume of stone equaling that of the Cheops pyramid in Egypt; it is unlike all the other Khmer temples in that it faces west. Its symmetrical towers are stylized on the modern Cambodian flag. Conceived by Suryavarman II, Angkor Wat took an estimated 30 years to build

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap 17259 Cambodia

The Great City of Angkor Thom is one of the central points within the whole Angkor Complex, which was probably more opulent than most European cities in the late 12th Century. This ten square kilometers city is enclosed by an eight-meter high wall and encircled by a hundred meter long moat said to have been inhabited by fierce crocodiles.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bayon Temple, Angkor Thom, Siem Reap Cambodia

The Bayon is a 12th century masterpiece lies at the very center of Angkor Thom City and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior gallery walls have extensive bas-reliefs but the main features are the towers each with 3 or 4 gently smiling faces, over 200 in total.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Preah Khan, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap Cambodia

"The Sacred Sword", an extensive monastic complex covering over 56 hectares built by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a monastery and teaching complex.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Ta Nei Temple, Siem Reap Cambodia

It's lesser-known, yet as interesting as all the other temple ruins, both temples are of late 12th Century and constructed in stone. Both are located near the northwest corner of the East Baray.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Ta Prohm, National Road #6 Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap 17252 Cambodia

The Ta Prohm was built in the late 12th century by Jayavarman VII as a shrine to his mother and is another must for anyone coming to Siem Reap. While clearing back the forest, it was decided to leave them in place to serve as a reminder of how the original discovers found it and other temples.

Had an amazing time. Angkor Wat was the highlight of my SEA trip.

We had a great day at on our full-day tuk tuk temple and sunrise tour. Our guide Duong was on time, spoke fluent English, and took us to all the temples we wanted to see. We booked the tour from the U.S. and the communication with our guide was seamless. He left a message at our hotel confirming our pick-up time and location the day before the tour. The day was truly a Siem Reap highlight for my husband and me, and when the choices of selecting a tour can be overwhelming, I can easily recommend that there is no need to look any further than this tour. We loved it! Thank you!

Great tour and well worth it! The tour guide did not know we were supposed to go back to our hotel after the sunrise as advertised, but our hotel prepared to-go breakfast for us so we did not miss a meal. It was better this way since we ate at Angkor after the sun came up. The tour was schedule to last until around 6:00 pm, but we were back in our hotel by 3:00 pm and still saw everything as advertised. Our tour guide was great and tuk-tuk drivers we awesome as well. We worth it. Recommend to everyone going to Siem Reap.

Excellent knowledgeable guide picks you up at your hotel and takes you to all the biggest sites. The guide was passionate about the history, was extremely friendly and knew all the best places to take pictures. You will not need an entire day if you bring breakfast with you. We were picked up at 4:45 and finished by 1pm. Our hotel packed breakfast for us and we did not each lunch or do any shopping in the temple area. It was just my wife and I so we moved through the sites quicker than a larger group would.

Excellent guide! Alas, it was raining at the time the sunrise took place... So, we chose the dry way: 4 hours of inside walking with lots and lots of oral information. An amazing monument more than worth to be a UN protected site.

Angkor is fabulous. It is definitely worth it to be there at sunrise and enjoy the magic that surrounds these temples.

Great trip, definitely worth the early start! Saw the main temples and the tour guide knew the best places for photos even on a crowded day. The guide was extremely knowledgable and took time to explain the carvings and the meaning behind, overall very enjoyable

This was a great tour and the guide did a great job. The sunrise that day wasn't really much of a show, but it was still a wonderful experience. There is so very much to see and experience. Highly recommend.

This tour was amazing and our guide was full of knowledge and very accommodating. Unfortunately we cut the trip short due to feeling unwell but I would highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Angkor Wat experience. The guide was very informative and patient. They had phoned our hotel prior to our tour to confirm and were punctual.

The sunrise tour is the best option! Suck it up, get up early, and get to Angkor...you won't be disappointed. Our tour guide, Savery, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Whatever pace you want, he will deliver. We learn so much from Savery, and I recommend that folks ask for him specifically. Additionally, Savery can serve as a resource for all things Siem Reap that do no involve Angkor. The temples are most amazing, and the time and money spent are well worth it. Savery is extremely professional and a wonderful photographer, being well versed in IPhones.

This tour was everything you could want . Our Tuk Tuk with a driver and a tour guide met us at our hotel at 5:00 am . We started out and went to the ticket office to have our tickets generated . We continued for about a fifteen minutes ride to the entry of the main temple. The guide brought a flashlight so we could see where we were walking. We found a spot on the wall on the pond and had a breakfast which our hotel had packed for us as we waited for the sun to meet the horizon , than we walked into the temple area and watched as the sun came over the temple. It was an amazing experience. After a cup of coffee in the market set-up by locals we started exploring the temples of Angkor. This tour is totally worth it. Our guide was well versed and knew his way thru the temple. I think you can easily get lost. Having just the two of us and our own guide is such a plus. D

Sunrise at Angkor Wat lived up to everything I hoped it would. There are a lot of people who are there for sunrise, however I still felt it was a magical experience watching the sunrise behind the temple. The rest of the temples are interesting, but we definitely felt we needed to give our guide a little push along with some of the personally less interesting information about the hundreds of carvings that are at these temples - still a very great experience.

Our tour guide was great... loads of good information! Be wary that this is a walking intensive trip so wear good comfortable shoes and comfortable clothing. The sunrise was beautiful and it was just becoming too hot as the tour ended... good timing! Book it!

Highly recommend this sunrise tour! Breakfast whilst watching the sun come up behind Angkor Wat!! There was just my partner, myself and the guide on this tour and we loved it! Going by tuk tuk was lots of fun. Our guide was a lovely young guy who my partner got on well with. Our guide was easy to understand and talk to about subjects outside the tour.

Although the guide's English was sometimes difficult to understand, he was very knowledgeable and very helpful. We saw all the major temple sites and had plenty of time later in the afternoon. They provided lots of water, and were pretty flexible. Highly recommend!

Awesome Tour of Ankor! My second trip to Angkor Wat which was much more informative and rewarding due to great tour guide provided.
• Submitted 17 Dec 2016
Our Guide is so nice. He knows ALL the secret photo spots and where to go to snap the best shots. He showed us all the hidden sights at the temples. This tour is awesome. The only thing I would recommend is that you have your hotel make you a good breakfast so you can eat it on the road instead of going back to the hotel and then going back to the temples.

A great day, made perfect by our outstanding and impressive guide, Mr. Sorin Mut, who was punctual, professional, articulate, knowledgeable, kind, and courteous. We couldn't have asked for better. The weather was also clear, but still very challenging if you are not acclimated to the heat and humidity, even during the dry season.
