My husband and I will be going to Siem Reap for five days in November. I've been reading through the forums and they've provided a lot of great information. However, I'm a little confused about the driver/guide situation.
I've gotten some great recommendations of guides and drivers from this forum, but I'm not sure if drivers also sometimes double as guides, or if you need both a guide as well as a driver. Maybe it depends on the specific driver? Any advice on this would be very appreciated. Also, I'm assuming that by corresponding with a guide beforehand, that they might be able to help me plan an itinerary that fits our needs - correct? There are so many options that I'm sure I'll need some help to sort them out!
Also, can you recommend if it's better to travel by tuk-tuk or car during November, or if it's simply a matter of personal preference. Personally, I like the idea of traveling by tuk-tuk, but I'm not sure if it will be terribly hot and bumpy; if so, the appeal of it might wear off after a day or two.
Any advice or suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
