If you've ever been on a trip that hit only the most heavily visited tourist destinations, you know how frustrating that can be. While experiencing famous landmarks and historic sites is undoubtedly a rewarding endeavor, if you're just one of thousands in the crowd, it's easy to see why your may not be as you imagined it. However, don't let the crowds deter you from seeing all the destinations you've wanted to - you just have to go about it a bit differently by looking into private guided tours.
Private tours offer much greater flexibility than traveling with larger groups. Not only can you can tailor your experience to fit your personal interests, but you also have the opportunity to gain some unique insight into each particular destination you may not have gleaned as part of a bigger crowd.
Cambodia tours in particular are well suited to a private travel experience, thanks in no small part to the majestic Angkor Wat - the world's largest Hindu temple complex. A substantial tourist draw, it can be easy to get caught up in the sheer size of this iconic landmark, but with the help of someone who knows their way around the grounds, you can see some of the most compelling sights in the world. From the intricate carvings on the temple walls to Angkor Wat's lengthy history, which dates back to the 12th century, any expert information can take your tour of Cambodia to the next level.
Privately led experiences can also improve France tours, especially if you want to sample some of the country's best wines. Instead of the heavily visited landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, you can get a first-hand look at some of the best wineries Paris has to offer. Is there anything better than a private tasting in an ancient wine cellar?

Being led through the Serengeti offers you the chance of catching a glimpse of everything from lions and zebras to giraffes and cheetahs - something you can't get anywhere else.
