My boyfriend and I went on the Angkor Wat sunrise personal tour - it was fantastic! We had the most amazing guided tour experience thanks to Chet. He filled us with 8 hours of fascinating information and I completely believe we could've gone for another 8 hours and he wouldn't have run out of fun acts for us. We were picked up in a nice SUV, which was great to escape the heat of the summer sun between temples. We loved that he had done this enough to know where the crowds were going to be headed and gave us the same tour while circumnavigating them, so it truly felt like a private experience. We were shown all of the best places and angles to take a lifetime's worth of beautiful photos. To top it off, we went to one of his favorite restaurants for authentic Cambodian food and after a long, hot day, he gave us a coconut to drink from. We couldn't have asked for a warmer guide, who was fully intent on making our experience truly memorable. We would recommend him again and again.

Booking this tour was as easy as can be: all my e-mails were answered promptly, my questions answered, and my special request for an additional location to be added to the itinerary were accommodated.

The day of, we were picked up promptly and both our guide and the driver were nice and friendly. Plenty of bottled water was provided and it was kept ice cold in a cooler all day.

Mr. Lem was incredibly knowledgeable about all the temples we saw on our tour and his English was easily understood. Without using a guide, we would have missed out on so much of the rich history of each of the temples and the surrounding grounds.

The order of the day's sights was planned to maximize our time and minimize our exposure to the other tour groups so most of the time it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Angkor Thom, Bayon, Baphuon, Phimean Akas, Elephant and Leper King Terraces, Ta Prohm and then Neak Pean.

For lunch we stopped at a nicely air conditioned restaurant with a mixture of khmer and western foods. It wasn't too expensive; I think the most expensive thing on the menu was $7?

After lunch, we finished up the tour by visiting the Angkor Wat temple. We were taken through the back entrance to avoid the crowds and it was great! A serene stroll through the trees in the back and the temple looked majestic and mysterious.

After visiting Angkor Wat, we were taken back to our hotel directly.

Pros:
Air conditioned van
Ice cold water
Funny and knowledgeable guide

Cons/ cautions:
It is six hours between being picked up and having lunch, so be prepared to stave off your hunger with a snack if you get hungry easily.
This tour includes a lot of walking and stair climbing, so wear comfortable shoes and be well rested.
Make sure to wear modest dress so you can enter all the temples.
Wear sunscreen!

Would definitely recommend this tour!

Chet was the first to reply when looking for a tour guide for our visit. All tour operators offered similar itineraries and prices, as Chet responded first we went with him! Firstly, it was extremely hot in June so we were kept hydrated by Chet which we were grateful for. As we were only in Siem Reap for half a day we wanted to see as much as possible, as quickly as possible. Chet's itinerary hit both those objectives allowing us to be flexible throughout the tour as we grew exhausted from the heat and all the walking! Definitely worth it though, it isn't a walk in the park but the history is just amazing.

Chet has an excellent personality, you can see genuine kindness when he speaks to you and his approach to others throughout our tour. He was very informative about many aspects of Cambodian life, not just the temples we visited.

Please be aware that there were lots of children trying to sell things at the restaurant area before you enter the sights (as you would get at many places around developing countries). I encourage you to have patience as we witnessed unsavoury behaviour from an American tourist throwing the childs goods away in anger at being bothered. They were selling things for 1 dollar.

All in all I would highly recommend Chet, you were an excellent guide, all the best for the future!

Booked this service and the guide was actually sub contracted ? Through a different company we think but he was great.

The day we went was super hot so the air conditioned car was a god send. And the unlimited supply of cold water couldn't have been better!

Our guide was very informative and listened to what we wanted. He loved taking photos and took us to good spots to get the best photos.

It was a very very full day and difficult to do in the heat, but when you want to get the most out of every day this was a great way to do it. We were picked up at 5am and dropped back around 2pm

We took our own breakfast so we didn't end up eating at the restaurant, however we still ate our own food there to have a rest. They didn't seem to mind.

rani took us to an extra temple which was secluded and peaceful.

A great, very full on day which was well worth it.

We booked a two day tour. Having read wonderful reviews, we requested for Chet to be our guide. Our emails were promptly replied.

Although our tour was only supposed to start the following day, Chet personally came to pick us up at the airport the day before. It was pouring and Chet did his uttermost to ensure we stay as dry as possible walking to the car.

Chet was a great guide, steering us away from the maddening crowd, showing us the best places to snap a photo. He was very accommodating to make adjustments to the itinerary according to our request. Besides the sights, we also learned a lot about Cambodia from him. He also took great care of us, making sure we stay hydrated in the hot weather and holding the umbrella over our heads to make sure we are shaded while we freed our hands to take photos.

We later learned that Chet does more of the administrative running these days and that he took the tour simply because we requested for him. We arranged for a transfer to the airport from him and to our surprise, he came to send us off even though it was his day off! Truly excellent!
