As we rode our bikes off the beaten path (past the hoardes of busses, tuk tuks, cars) and onto dirt roads, through a small village, and over a river - I definitely felt that we had made the best choice for seeing the Angkor complex!
Our guide, Lyna, added so much to the tour as well. His explanations were very interesting and provided so much information we could not have gotten had we gone alone. He was very patient with us, never complaining or asking us to hurry up even though the tour went way longer than it was meant to (we move slowly). Additionally, he was a great photographer and knew the best ways to take some shots ! An unnecessary but greatly appreciated skill :) Thank you Lyna for sharing so much about the temples and answering all our questions about your life as well.
KKO from start to finish was very helpful, considerate, and accomodating. It was a goal for us to find an organization that we felt good about putting our money behind - and I loved hearing about KKO's story!
Negatives: Bike seats are very uncomfortable. Your butt will hurt. Also, the restaurant we ate lunch at (accross from the last temple) was bad and overpriced. Granted, we could have waited until we were back in town but we were very hungry at this point and it's pretty much the only option. Skip it if you can.
*Take Note: For Angkor Wat I knew I had to be covered, so brought a wrap to throw over my shoulders. This was not enough to visit the top level! Even though I was more covered than some people in T-shirts, you -need- to have a shirt with longer sleeves. Cannot be a scarf or shawl. All the other temples were fine.
