I've read through all the posts on this forum and from what I understand there are guides in beige shirts who, for 20 USD a day, will take you through the temple ruins. But I've also been reading about guides ( like Soryar and his 'brothers' :-) who will drive you upto the ruins and give you the lowdown on them before you get off, but will not go into the ruins with you.
Are the beige shirted guides affiliated with the Tourist sector of the government? And are the others private entrepreneurs? Are the former available at the entrances to Angkor Wat and other temples or do they need to be booked beforehand, and if so, how? And are the latter among the people who wait at the airport and/or hotels to get customers?
When a hotel arranges a guide for you, is it the 'official' guide or the 'entrepreneur'?
Do the beige shirted guides double as drivers too? What are the current prices for a car driver for the day and/or a guide for a day - if you get then on your own and if you get them through your hotel?
Sorry, sorry, sorry for bugging you all with so many questions :-(
