Let our trusted Cambodian cycle and temple guides give you an interesting and a totally different way to visit Angkor. The added benefit of being on bicycle is that you will see more than the incredible legacy of the Khmer empire and get to glimpse into rural Cambodian life.

- Day 1
- We ride to the Angkor Temple complex before starting the Grand Circuit, stopping at each major temple area. At sunset we return to the temples by car for a sunset view from Phnom Bakheng.
- Day 2
- We enter the temple complex by a much quieter gate and then ride into the countryside and we turn off the main tourist road to Banteay Srei, visiting Banteay Samre on the way.
- Day 3
- Today we leave the crowds behind and head towards the small village of Roulous, home to some of the earliest permanent structures built by the Khmers and then head to the floating village of Kampong Phluck. After a boat tour around the village we cycle or drive back to Siem Reap.

The ONLY way to explore the Angkor Wat Temple Complex is with a cycle tour and educated guide. Loved this trip! I have to give a huge compliment to Nat, he went Above and beyond to help a Aussie couple who signed up late to our same tour and had many 'special' requests as they had to get a ride from Floating Market to airport, asked us all for longer picture stops and they had to miss part of the tour. Nat was on the phone helping them and he also made sure we were ok with the changes to the ITIN first--which we were and that was great he asked us too! I don't know if the Aussie couple realized how much extra they were always asking of Nat (and sometimes us) he was Always so professional about it all. I hope to ride again some day! Thanks!

Cambodia is interesting but I think cycling here would be frustrating without a good guide. Mr. Chamthon proved a very good guide. He knew the back ways to see villages, avoid traffic (Cambodian traffic is extremely free form - our guide made it exciting instead of terrifying). And he knew people in many places we visited. His knowledge of the history and current situations we saw were essential to our understanding and enjoyment. It was also obvious he wanted to learn more and become even better at his job.

Great way to see the countryside and the temples in Cambodia. Well organized and well paced.

Yes it was extremely enjoyable!! Had a good variety of Cambodian food each day and learnt a lot about Cambodian history from our very knowledgeable guide. It seems a long time ago but it was only the end of October, I think our guide was Mr Rith? He was very friendly and informative, it was so good to have someone the same standard as the great SpiceRoad guides from Thailand!

The guide that we had on our tour, Sok Heng, was excellent! He was always very informative and lots of fun. He knew so much about the history of all the temples that we visited and of the Khmer people as well.
I enjoyed the trip a lot and have already recommended spice roads to my friends!! Thank you for a wonderful guide and a wonderful trip!

It’s an enjoyable combination of cycling, sightseeing and hiking, whilst immersing ourselves in Cambodian history and culture.
Our guide, Mr Bun, was very informative, helpful and funny too. Our driver ensured that the support van was well stocked with water, soft drinks, snacks and fresh fruits, and our bicycles were well maintained and serviced.

Site seeing at the temples exceeded my expectations and the guides knowledge on them and history was excellent in understanding the temple developments and expansion process.
His explanation on the history of the Khmer was very helpful in understanding this development.
