This was a really special experience, particularly to view more ornate temple decor that has survived the test of many many years.

This is a very beautiful temple and less crowded, in fact this is one where we visited in the afternoon around 3pm and managed lots of nice photos without other people in it.

We found Banteay Srei one of the better sites, the colours of the stone was magical. Watch you head entering the site.

This place is in big circle, so some group tourists may not go. It will be more quiet n less crowded.
The bricks on this temple is iron red color.

You can enjoy a bit quiet environment there.

This was a tour we took with company called K-Look. They are a large operator of tours in Asia. This tour was a "Grand Tour" visiting 6 different ruin sites.
The sites were very interesting, the tour guide was quite knowledgeable. However the van they used to take us and 10 others was very uncomfortable, hard small seats with no leg-room. The biggest problem was almost no air conditioning. Either the A/C was broken and didn't work well or they wouldn't turn it up, high enough. After being outside in 36 degree heat walking up high stairs the last thing you need is a hot van to get back into. We were getting sick from all the heat and left the tour part way through and hired a tuk tuk to take us back to our hotel.
We have been on numerous tours in different Asian countries with different tour companies, that were hot and this is the first time the van wasn't cool.
I would recommend the tour no problem, but would consider using a different company with decent vans or hire a private taxi that would be more comfortable.
