This tour was recommended to us by someone staying at our hotel and it was the best decision we made! Our guide Bunhak was so knowledgeable and had very good English. The driver would give us a cold towel and a cold bottle of water when we got into the van after each temple which is very nice in Portugal - 11 months ago
Excellent 6 days visiting Cambodia with Angkor Wat Tours. Our guide was very helpful and helped us to do our day to day itinerary, and also tried their best to fulfill our requests. My friends and I had wonderful trip and very happy time in Siem Reap – Cambodia.
