Here are travelers’ reviews of a 3-day private by Ellis, From Switzerland
“Amazing 3 day private tour with Rain, very knowledgeable about temples and there place in Cambodian history.
Day 1 we did a lot of the further away temples (grand circuit), which was the longest of the days c9 hours. Stopped for lunch at a really nice restaurant that had lots of vegetarian options.
Day 2 was sunrise at Angkor Watt and the small circuit. Really early rise and back to the hotel early afternoon (c7 hour day).
Day 3 we did 3 temples about 30 minutes from Siem Reap. These were older than the temples we’d already seen and a slightly different style. Nice short day to finish off (c4 hours).Would recommend Rain to a friend”
