Our Vehicle Types
Daily Private Taxi Shuttle From Siem Reap
Cars with drivers can be hired for single or multiple days. While all drivers are familiar with the area and happy to suggest good routes, most speak little English and are not actual tour guides. Licensed tour guides mostly in English charge US$40-US$50 per day and for English, a speaking driver with a car charges $ 35 to $ 40 a day inner Angkor area. Drivers will likely ask for US$5-US$10 to $ 30 extra for trips to further temples such as those of the Big Circuit, Banteay Srey, and more for remote sites like Beng Mealea and Kulen Mountain.
The taxis (US$10 fixed cost) from the airport to Siem Reap proper may provide a full day of touring for US$25-30. If you need to take the taxi around the grand circle tour, it will be costed 40$ and to Banteay, Stei Temple is 50$.
Beware of airport taxi drivers talking you into a tour, as they tend to charge you a much higher price. Do not assume that the official counter at the airport makes them better as the quality of drivers varies a lot. Only book a driver and a car through your hotel or tour services to avoid scams.
PassApp and Grab are good alternatives to book your car or tuk tuk at fair price. A local number is required for registration.
