I cannot say enough about me and my fiancee's two-day private tour with Rithy. He helped us figure out the best itinerary to maximize our time in Cambodia. He was extremely knowledgeable, providing the perfect amount of history while still allowing us to experience the temples and floating village on our own. We visited in late July so it was very hot, and Rithy provided water and cold towels between stops. This in combination with the air-conditioned SUV made us comfortable and allowed us to beat the heat.
Below is our two-day itinerary:
Pick up from the hotel lobby at 4:40am
Watch the sunrise in front of Angkor Wat temple
Visit ancient royal city of Angkor Thom complex (the best preserved South gate, the smiling-faced Bayon temple and Elephant terrace) - This was our favorite part of the trip!
Visit overgrown Ta Prohm temple, featured in Tomb Raider
Left at 8am
Visit Beng Mealea temple (Looks like something out of Indiana Jones)
Take private 80 minute boat ride touring Kampong Kleang, the largest and most authentic floating village on Tonle Sab Lake - This was unbelievable. Do not skip this!
If you are in Siem Reap, do yourself a huge favor by booking the tour with Rithy. By the end of the trip you won't see him as a guide any longer, but as a friend.
