Today, you will join a group tour and your guide start to pickup from a few different hotels, so the pickup time is variable between 7:40am to 8:20am, so guests are advised to wait in the hotel lobby and ready to go as soon as your guide arrives.
We will start this day with exploring the temples of Angkor National Park, the World Heritage site and it's the World Largest Religious Monument. Pay the entrance fee on your own account at the ticket office where we will stop for you to buy one and make your way with the guide to the first stop at Angkor Wat to visit the largest and most impressive of all Angkor temples, considered among one of the 7th Wonders of the World. 
Angkor Wat was built between 1113-1150 AD. and dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation. It's the best preserved of all the temples. Its layout and its scale are simply breathtaking, the wall surrounding the enclosure measures 1,000 by 800 meters and the moat, said to represent the oceans of the world is 200 meters wide. Angkor Wat is an architectural allegory of the mythical Mount Meru in the center of the world (Himalaya). This amazing temple homes the longest continuous bas relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls.
We also explore the Angkor Thom complex. Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high and 13km in length contain many monuments. Inside the walls the king, his relatives and officials, military officers and priests took residence, the rest of the people lived outside of the great enclosure, between the two artificial lakes. Our visit will begin with the South Gate, a beautiful introduction to Angkor Thom with well-restored statues of Asuras (demons) and gods lining the bridge. Inside the complex, we will first visit the Bayon with 200 endless smiling faces. This temple mountain situated in the center of Angkor Thom City where sets the Bayon apart from many other Angkor monuments and we will continue to the Elephant Terrace, which owes its name to its outstanding depiction of these animals and the Terrace of Leper King, which presents a magnificent sculpture, popularly known as the leper king and then we continue the tour to Ta Phrom was a monastery built by the king Jayavarman VII as a residence for his mother as well as a school.
Ta Phrom has been controversially left to the destructive power of the jungle by French archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature. It has been largely consumed by the jungle and as you will climb through the dilapidated stone structures you will see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. At every turn you will expect to see Indiana Jones (Lara Croft) step out from behind a fallen pillar around you.
This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel or any requested drop off point within the city center.

Our tour guide, Nak, was so very informative and really made this tour interesting and alive. The site itself is fabulous, the sculpture on stone tell stories in Hindu mythology. The day was long and hard work but I don't think anyone will be disappointed. Great tour and great tour guide

Good selection of temples in the Angkor complex, with time for lunch. Highlight is the Angkor Wat with stories of its history and culture. Ta Prohm is amazing while Bayon is mysterious and grand.

Really enjoyed this trip. Would definitely recommend. We saw all the major places of Angkor Wat while our tour guide was very good at English and told many interesting facts and stories. We got free water when needed which was nice in the humid heat. They also offered umbrellas. Only minus was that the restaurant they drove us to was a bit overpriced. Overall a very good experience.

Loved this tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable gave us plenty of time for pictures and even helped us locate the best picture spots! Truly enjoyed this day! Despite it being very humid our guide ensured we had plenty of water and time to rest before heading to each temple.

It was a very interesting tour, the guide was also excellent, and also the place where he brought us for lunch, a kind of plantation where you could eat and relax lying on a wooden platform with cushions. The only thing I would have changed is that we entered to Angkor Thom not through the South Gate, more tipical,and nicer but though the East Gate. The guide was very well documented and answered all our qüestions, and also took pictures of us in nice points he knew . We were really a small group of about 8 which make very easy going through the visit. The guide excellent and with very good manners, very very nice I'm sorry I can't remember his name

An excellent tour. The temples were amazing and our guide, 'Mr Phearom' was very knowledgeable, had very good English, a great sense of humour and was able to advise on local dishes at the restaurant. Very good value.

The Angkor Wat complex is huge. I would not attempt to do it on your on, unless you have unlimited time and your own car. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. He knew how to dodge some of the crowds as well as good spots for photos. It was a day well spent.

There were 6 of us on the tour and the guides name was Noy who explained the history as we went around, it made for a very interesting day, He readily answered any questions we asked. The driver of the very comfortable, air cooled bus was always waiting with cold water after each temple. A lot of walking and steep stairs are involved but boy is it worth it. The different temples take your breath away. Noy certainly looked after us and i would recommend Viator and Noy to all who are interested in visiting the wonders of Angkor Wat.

Even though i was extremely tired when i reached the hotel late afternoon, looking back it was one of the best days i had as a tourist— the temples are breathtaking, the guide (Sarat) was very patient (brought us to all the best sites), and the weather was cooperative (mostly gloomy but no rain).

Amazing tour and temples! This is the perfect tour for anyone wanting to see the temples with a small group to make friends. Our tour guide, Phearom, was one of the best, friendliest, passionate, and knowledgeable tour guides I've ever had amongst my travels. By the end of the day the group had made friends and I even ending up spending time with them after the tour, a great way to meet people if you are traveling alone like me. This tour is the perfect length and covers the top beautiful temples of Cambodia. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone!
