The temples of Angkor are truly one of the world's greatest archeological wonders, and this full-day, guided, small group tour is the perfect way to experience the magic of this ancient civilization. Wander the halls of Angkor Wat and see the faces of stone at Bayon, while also visiting Angkor Thom and the tree-laden temple, Ta Prohm. Transport is included from Siem Reap hotels, as is a professional historian guide who can help bring the temples to life.
Your tour begins between (7.30am-8.00am) in front of your Siem Reap hotel, where you'll meet your local driver and guide for a full day of history and adventure. The temples of Angkor represent 600 years (802-1432) of Khmer civilization, which ranks as one of Asia's—and the world's—greatest ancient kingdoms. You'll visit famous Angkor Wat and wander its hallowed halls, and see the gate of Angkor Thom with its rows of 54 figures. Marvel while touring the temple at Bayon amidst hundreds of ancient stone faces, and explore the Terrace of the Leper King, as well as the Terrace of the Elephants. After taking a break for lunch you'll continue on to famous Ta Prohm, where trees roots have clambered up the walls and twisted right through the blocks, creating a scene that was famously used in the Angelina Jolie movie, Tomb Raider. At one point over 2,700 monks called this ancient temple home, and today it looks much as did back in the early 1850s, when the French explorer, Henri Mouhot, "rediscovered" the site. Along with your professional historian guide, you'll hear the ancient history and tales behind the carvings and temples, and walk away with a deep appreciation of Angkor's past. Return to your hotel Between 3pm - 4pm , tour day tour which will leave you with a lifetime of memories of one of wonders of the world.
