WE need an English speaking guide for our Angkor wat tour on the 5th Jan 2014. I checked with Bunleat from the Happy Angkor Wat tour and he is charging US100 a day for the car and the basic one day tour? Is his tour worth that much? What are the basic tour charges and does anyone know of a cheaper option?

What does the tour include? It sounds a bit expensive to me, but without details it's hard to say. Is a tuk tuk out of the question? Try to get a few more quotes.

Day one ( Jan 05 2013): After breakfast, leave early at 5 am from the hotel to visit the largest religious monument in the world , the temple of Angkor wat to experience the quiet time of the temple. Move on to Banteay Kdei. After lunch break, visit the stunning jungle-clap Ta Promh and now it's the place where tomb raider was filmed with the actress of Angelina Jolie. It's a romantic site. Then move on to visit Bayon temple in Angkor Thom. This was built in about 1200. It was the first and also last Buddhist mountain temple ever built. Bayon consists of 49 towers with smiling faces. 37 of the towers got four faces, 10 got three faces and two got two faces. So itâ€™s 182 faces in total and nowadays, you can see only 177 faces. All faces were considered as compassionate Faces of Buddha or King Jayavaraman VII himself. After that, we go on to Baphoun built in 1060 and now it is under restoration. Visit royal palace, Phimeanakas, terrace of elephant and terrace of leper king. Return to the hotel.
The above itinerary is for $100US. WE do not mind the tuk tuk and if someone can recommend a guide using tuk tuk for less than the amount, please let me know.
