Laura our tour leader was fantastic, knowlegeable and a strong leader.

Our driver Keith was probably the best driver I've ever encountered as he kept us safe and got us out of parking 'jams' throughout the trip and even at road patrols and boarder crossing both he and Laura were incredibly organize which ensured we weren't held up unnecessarily.

Expat planned out the entire trip so methodically it was well-received.

It would have been nicer if we had more time at some countries but since the schedule was so packed that was par for the course.

I can't wait to join in on another Expat tour in the near future! less....

This tour with Stacey (tour guide) & Wayne (driver) was the best tour I have ever done.

I have done 2 tours previously with other tour providers , and this tour was by far superior than them on all aspects.

It was very well organised, daily and next day instructions were given clearly with all rele ant phone numbers etc on a day sheet which we could get a photo of on our phones, the optional activities were excellent and there were lots of opportunities to mingle with the rest of the tour group - e.

g.

: there was a facebook closed group created by Stacey which enabled us to interact daily and for me, as I joined in the middle of the 22 day tour, I was introduced on it before I joined & knew who my tour group was even before i joined.

There were lots of unique activities that were not seen on other tours - like a daily diary where we could pen down our memories to be read out the next day, social activist like celebrating b'day, engagements, wedding anniversaries, which all made us close knit like one family.

As I was the last to join on day 11, and was traveling solo for the first time ever, I was slightly apprehensive re; how quicky I would be absorbed into the group - but with Stacey & Wayne being so friendly & introducing me to everyone , and with the absolute warmth & friendliness of the group, it took only an hour , if at all for me to feel totally at ease.

Waynes's driving was excellent, we felt totally safe & comfortable & he was an essential part of our social activities & fun at all times too.

He was always ever so helpful, esp with our luggage.

Stacey's organising was excellent, she was fun but also made sure we were all disciplined & kept to times with her critical timings :-) She went out of her way to help - for me it was when my flight from London to Venice was delayed by 4 hours & I missed the gondola tour, when I left some clothes behind in the hotel in Pargue she sorted all that out and she organised cabs at drop off at very good rates.

Excellent less....

Benefits of a tour guide for Angkor Wat

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
