Angkor guide and itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

As part of a 2 1/2 week trip to Cambodia next month, my husband and I will have 6 nights/7 days in Siem Reap. I've been perusing Dawn Rooney's book and the guidebooks and have tentatively decided on this itinerary for seeing temples:
Day 1: Roluos group and big circuit
Day 2: Small circuit, beginning with Ta Prohm for sunrise and including Banteay Kdei and Sra Srang, then on to Banteay Srei around lunch time/afternoon.
Day 3: Angkor Wat, a little after sunrise to let the sunrise crowds disperse a bit, and in the afternoon, Angkor Thom.
Day 4: Beng Melea and Koh Ker.

We like temples, ruins and historical sites (Tikal in Guatemala is a favorite of ours) and are physically fit 30-somethings - is this a reasonable amount to see in this amount of time?
Regarding guides - I have planned to book a guide for Days 1, 2, and 4. I was unsure whether we'd miss out on enjoying the sights fully Day 3 without a guide or if it would be fun/doable to see Angkor Wat and explore Angkor Thom on our own that day.

Thanks in advance for your input.
