About
Watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat is a truly unforgettable experience that makes for spectacular photos. On this tour, arrive early to beat the crowds and midday heat, enjoy a guided tour of the ancient ruins, and visit the temples of Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, and Bayon Temple (entrance fees at your expense). A small group means plenty of time for questions, and convenient hotel pickup and drop-off make for a seamless experience.

Highlights
Stunning views of Angkor Wat at sunrise
Morning tour: avoid the hottest part of the day
Small group tour: more attention from your guide
Hassle-free hotel pickup and round-trip transportation from Siem Reap 
What to expect
Start your tour with an early morning pickup from your Siem Reap hotel and travel to the Angkor Archaeological Park in the comfort of an air-conditioned minivan. Once you’ve purchased your entrance tickets (own expense), head through the little-visited western entrance to experience Angkor Wat at sunrise. After watching the magnificent sunrise, set out to explore Angkor Wat on a guided walking tour and listen as your guide points out notable architectural features and details the fascinating history of the Khmer Empire. Stop to enjoy breakfast (most hotels will provide a packed breakfast for guests on early tours) outside the temple, before continuing to visit Angkor Thom and the Bayon Temple. As the sun begins to heat up, make one last stop to see the ‘jungle temple’ of Ta Prohm, before being dropped back at your hotel in the early afternoon.

Will return to Siem Reap. Loved it. Plenty of walking and lots of steps and uneven ground. Beautiful sunset.

Fantatic day!
Mar. 2020
I would highly recommend this tour. There was and early morning pick up at everyone's hotels, b&b's etc. and then from there we went to the ticket office to buy a pass for the temples. There are a few options available and Sam our guide explained what was best depending on time you have in the area and if you were hoping to visit more temples on your own at later date.
Once we had tickets we headed to Angkor Wat and Sam explained some of the history and told us we were free to wonder around but to meet him at a set time ready for sun rise. He also explained the perfect spot to stand and line up the sun with the central tower of the temple.
From here we were give a tour and told some information on the history of the temple, surrounding area, and construction as well as religious stories that were carved on the gallery walls. We were also given the opportunity to head up to the top gallery. There were a few steep steps and it was already getting warm by this point but it is worth it. Once at the top there were great views of the grounds, more shrines and there was also a monk blessing people.
We then went and had breakfast not to far from the temple (it had air con too). There were Western and traditional options to try and there were no complaints from anyone. Some of the group brought their own breakfast from the hotel and they were fine to eat that in the restaurant too.
From there we took in Ta Prohm and then went on to the Bayon Gate and Bayon Temple.
Sam explained everything to us and answered all the questions that were thrown at him. He also knew the best photo spots and was happy to take photos of the group. There was cold water handed out every time we got on or off the bus (also air conditioned) and they made sure we were all happy and comfortable.

100% book this excursion if you want to not only see the temples, but get the best photo opportunities and learn about the temples history too.

Thanks Sam :)

Amazing Time
Mar. 2020
Mr Sakriya was an amazing tour guide. He knew where to go to line up the sunrise with Angkor Wat's central spire. Knew a great spot to grab pictures at the reflecting pond. And you could tell he definitely wanted everyone to have a great time.

One piece of advice for the tour company though: don't recommend people pack a breakfast at 4am, and say we'll eat it sunrise at 6am, but then leave them in the car 'til 9am in the hot Cambodian sun. Wound up hungry and un-caffeinated all morning (didn't eat beforehand, because the tour company specifically tells you to pack your breakfast and bring it along) while my food spoiled in the van somewhere else. Like, if we can't eat at sunrise don't tell us we can. Tell us we can't so we can eat beforehand and those of us who are coffee addicts can get our fix beforehand too.

Still 5/5 though, because it was an amazing time even on an empty stomach and the tour guide was awesome.

Excellent day trip to Angkor Wat
Feb. 2020
This day trip was perfect for our time in Siem Reap. We started at sunrise (the actual sunrise that day was underwhelming and there were many loud tourists, but of course this is out of the guide's control) and then visited all the highlights - Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayon Temple. We stopped for a nice breakfast as well. Our guide provided helpful information about each sight and spoke excellent English. The van we rode around in was comfortable, air conditioned and the driver provided water and cool towels. I would highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic tour
Mar. 2020
The thought of getting up at 0345 was not a pleasant one but it was absolutely the right decision. We had an amazing tour with our guide Kiss who was brilliant, his knowledge was vast and he was enthusiastic about sharing it with the 7 of us. It was great to explore Angkor Wat in the cool of the morning. Getting the tickets on the way was smooth and we arrived in plenty of time to get some history from Kiss before the sunrise. We sat on the wall at the beginning of the main walkway down to the water front and watched the sunrise so it was quiet and very atmospheric not being amid the crowds (albeit the crowds were small due to the Coronavirus) Once the sun was up we walked down to the water to catch the reflections. After eating our breakfast in a nearby restaurant we continued with the rest of the tour which was brilliant. We never felt rushed and had plenty of time to explore each wat that we visited. There was a constant supply of cold water and having the air conditioning on the bus was perfect once it got hotter. Perfect tour and great value, would highly recommend
