Have toured all over the world, and I cannot remember a tour service that exceeded the service, knowledge and value of Angkor Wat Services. From email booking with John, to the on-site support of Vorleak (private guide) and Vany (driver), everything was perfect! John set up a excellent 3-day custom itinerary that allowed us to see high points in the Angkor complex and venture off of the tourist track to the stilted village of Kampon Khleang and a floating village at Tonle Sap Lake.
Vorleak is an excellent English-speaking guide. He showed us the typical heavy hitters, and pointed out items of interest from historical, architectural and cultural perspectives. He had an excellent sense of what would be of interest to international visitors. He chose paths and times for avoiding crowds and allowing for the best light for photographs. It is apparent that he has toured with photographers, and understands composition and lighting needs. He chose excellent local restaurants for lunch.
Our only regret is that we didn't plan to stay longer than 3 days. Well worth a week's stay in the Siem Reap area.
Tip for travelers to Siem Reap: items to bring for children include pens, children's books in English, notepads, soccer team jerseys.More
