Angkor Wat

We're going to be in Siem Reap and are excited about exploring Angkor Wat. We'll have two full days and want to maximize our experience and see as much as possible. I thought hiring a private guide would be the best option and was hoping there is someone or a guide service you could suggest.

Sorry I don't have a suggestion for a specific private guide (I was on a Gate1 group tour) but I agree it is wise to hire a guide. The site is very spread out and at a minimum having transport will keep you from wilting (sooooo hot and muggy). A guide can also help avoid the crowds and catch the right light (some temples are better lit in morning, others in afternoon). The Angkor Wat main temple was a bucket list item for me, but it turned out the smaller temples should have been on my list instead. Have a great trip!
