Experience Cambodia in a completely different way by exploring the temples of Angkor Small Circuit while you're inside a Tuk-Tuk! Known as one of the most iconic symbols of Siem Reap, the Tuk-Tuk, which can fit groups of up to 4 persons, is a must-try for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the city's rich and vibrant cultures. The Angkor Temples tour will start in the morning - you'll get picked up at your hotel, then proceed to the ticket station to purchase your Angkor Passes. Once you're done, hop on the Tuk-tuk and head to the first stop of the tour, the majestic Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the entire world. Marvel at its stunning architecture, with tall towers akin to a flowering lotus bud. Make your way to Angkor Thom and Bayon Temple, surrounded by lush forests and best seen in the morning due to its eastward orientation, before you take a quick break for lunch at a local restaurant, at your own expense. Climb up the Terrace of the Elephants, a 300-meter long platform which was used by King Jayavarman VII to follow games and celebrations, as well as watch his armies return from victory. Check out the architectural beauty and sound designs of the Ta Keo Temple, said to have been left incomplete due to a bad omen after a lightning bolt hit it during construction, and the Ta Prohm Temple, used as a filming location for the movie Tomb Raider. Your last stop for the Angkor Tuk Tuk tour is the Banteay Kdei Temple, which has been overtaken by the vegetation surrounding it, before you head back to the city and get dropped off at your hotel/accommodation.

The tour was a great way to start exploring the Temples in Siem Reap. Very informative and there was adequate time to look around and take pictures. The stay at each temple was not very long. You can always go back on your own if you feel you like to explore more. Our guide, Touch, was very funny and took great photos. He made the tour very interesting and lively. The transport is also comfortable and punctual.
Booked Siem Reap Shuttle tours for my three days Siem Reap. All three days they didn’t disappoint especially with the guides. Had Bunny for the temples sunrise tour. He was knowledgeable, super friendly and engaging across all ages. He did his very best to make everyone on the tour comfortable and well taken care of. He also shared his own personal stories and a lot of context on Cambodia’s social, political and economic developments which was very interesting! Thoroughly enjoyable half-day tour. Would recommend as your very first tour if you are a first-timer to Siem Reap as it will give you good background to subsequent temples.
Our driver was excellent - very friendly and patient. And the temples themselves were spectacular! This trip is a must for anyone in Siem Reap.
The only thing to improve was the lunch place which was (relatively speaking) too expensive. Would have preferred a lunch in a more local place. They also don’t take card and there’s no ATM.
Had great fun and it is really worth it to wake up at 3am! And the weather is actually cooler during the whole sunrise tour, which I recommend.
Tour guide ChenLa is very friendly and helpful, plus he is very patient as well! We had all histories well explained and explored all the places as showed in the itinerary of this tour. Will definitely recommend friends to take this tour if they are visiting Siem Reap.
This tour is highly recommended for first time visitors of Siem Reap. The temples included in the tour varies from the majestic Angkor Wat, to the ancient vibe of Ta Phrom that looked like its half swallowed by the surrounding nature), and to the hollywood-famed Bayon Temple (site of Angelina Jolie's The Tomb Raider).
the tuktuk driver is really just a "driver" who will drive you to each destinations, drop off then wait for tou when your done touring a spot. The tour guides who really knows about the history of the places can be paid/hired separately (we didnt get one so I dont know the rate). They can be found in the ticketing office or the temples themselves, they have brown uniform so they are recognizable. another option, you can purchase a guidebook sold by locals who are waiting outside the temples.
another tip, get the number of your driver so tou can contact him anytime if you get lost. we did got lost after the "temple of the elephants" but good thing we were able to call him and resume our tour. thanks klook!
Travelling to Cambodia for the first time, I and my friend Mai piqued our interest to visit and explore Angkor Wat. Indeed, the place revealed the pride of Siem Reap with its amazing architectures of their temples. In this tour, we were able to witness as the sun rises in Angkor Wat followed by a walk in the Ta Phrom and Bayon Temples. Fortunately, we were assisted by our interactive and kind tour guide Mr. Touch. Thus, we learn a lot from him about the ancient histories of these places.
