We did a private tour for a day in Siem Reap. My husband is a very keen amateur photographer and we have done similar tours elsewhere. The contact with Matthias was prompt, efficient and most of all, flexible to our needs.
We were assigned to Darren for the day and were very pleased with how it all went. We had opted to miss sunrise and start at 730am. We went to Ta Prohm first and Darren helped us find the best spots away from the tour groups. We covered 6 temples in total and also did some street photography in a local market.
Darren helped us interact with the locals to get the best photos. We were impressed with his technical knowledge and he certainly made the most of our short time by finding the best locations.
The end of the day spent watching the sunset from the top of Bakong was pure magic. This was also our favourite temple as we had a chance to meet some young monks in the nearby temple grounds.
It could not have been better and although it was a long and tiring day we were very glad to have done it. It really does help you make the most of your short time in Siem Reap. As for the photos, they are still being processed and we will post some highlights on our mcternans.com travel blog very soon. Hopefully we will have some worthy ones. Thank you Darren, Matthias and our patient driver.
