It all depends what airfare is at the time and your level of international travel. For beginners having a guided tour might be good. For more experienced might want more freedom.

Looking at SFO to BKK, rt is about $600-$700.

The second one you will not see any great beaches if thats something you care about. Though I like the river Kwai.
If booked a head of time in country flights are cheap depending how many bags you have.
Solid deal, unless they always push you to buy stuff.

Also I see there is one that includes going to Ankor Wat in Cambodia.

Also the price is $1100 as there is $100 fee for guides.

Good find on the Angkor Wat option. Having been there, that would be my choice, although the River Kwai would be interesting too. N.B., Cambodia requires a visa for US citizens (and others). $36, obtained on arrival at Siem Reap. Bring US dollars, as they are widely accepted.

Not specifically about this deal or provider, but in general make sure you don't fall for the visa scam at the border. The bus you arrive on will stop off right before the border and tell you that you have to get the visa there. Of course, for a fee. Just stay firm and say you'll get it at the border. They'll tell you that you will waste everyone's time since it will take a long time. Stay firm and say you'll get it at the border. It takes no time at all. Don't get scammed.

Siem Reap is not the drowsy little town it used to be. It's a little metropolis now. The only street left that's what it used to be is bar street. That's pretty much the same. The rest is like a baby vegas. At least getting there is easy now. It's all freeway. Back in the day, it was a multi-step process including many vehicle changes wading ankle deep in mud.

Where did you find the option for Ankor Wat? I have looked over both deals and found nothing, what am I missing?

I went to the 2nd one in May and it was good. Tour guide, hotel, and food was great.

$1000 quickly became $2000 after I had to bribe a police officer in Pattaya for smoking electric cigarette and scooter accident in Koh Larn island.

Also, there is an expectation for tips for the tour guide and bus driver and that would be extra $100 at least.

Overall recommended.

My fear with these guided trips is that they just take you to tour traps and stores where they get kickbacks and you don't actually see the xountey

This is usually the case, I would avoid this deal. It's cheap because they factor in the money they try to 'scam' people into spending.

Huh? I'm confused not sure why the bribe that you had to pay for smoking and the accident you got into is relevant to this deal.

When I arrived at the airport, the customs officers were taking bribes to expedite the visa process.
I'm normally super cheap, and I stand firm against tourist traps and scams, but I think in this case it was better to just pay up. The bribe was only a few dollars.

It was definitely better than waiting long lines and getting rejected for every little mistake.

FYI: You don't need to bring US dollars. Since it is an accepted currency, there is an ATM right there where you apply for the visa at the Siem Reap airport that will give you USD. I was there a few weeks ago.

I would not do this. You are probably going to take a Chinese airline with a shitty schedule, then staying in a shitty hotel, with tours going to factories selling garbage.

You can fly with ANA for cheap. I think they have deals for around $600. Bangkok and Phuket are dirt cheap. You can stay in 5 stars hotels for like $100/nt. I have stayed in a few luxury resorts for cheaper.
Airbnb is also dirt cheap. Just DIY. It's very easy to navigate both towns. There is grab Taxi (like uber) and great subway system in Bangkok.
