Knowledgeable and flexible guide makes for a great experience.
Kevin_P, Dec 2021
What a fantastic tour! We did hit some rain and the driver was very flexible with the schedule. He also knew the area very well and we ended up changing it up a bit. Road conditions change, so it is nice having some flexibility in your schedule, as weather changes also. Great trip! Thanks.
Worth it

It was a long drive, but my driver stopped off a couple of times for interesting food and views. The climb was challenging but the views were incredible, as was the sense of achievement.

Really good tour and helpful guide...
Claire_S, Feb 2018
Really good tour and helpful guide. Couple of extra stops - to a hindu temple, spice gardens and woodcrafts centre. Lunch with a cooking demonstration was nice although shame we had to share this with a large french tour group - also price was quite high and an unexpected cost. Also entrance fees to Dambulla and Sigiriya are not included and must be paid in cash - would be helpful to know before booking how much these are. Lunch plus entrance fees plus a couple of other extras add quite a bit to this tour but well worth it.

Kristen H, Jan 2018
Our guide was Riyaz and he was wonderful. He spoke about the mix of Sri Lankan culture, climbed the top of Sigiriya with us even though he had cold and took us to a private lunch off the beaten path - which was amazing. It was a long day but didn't feel like it.
We thought the caves at Dambulla...
Walter B T, Dec 2017
We thought the caves at Dambulla were the highlight. We had no intention of climbing the rock and were horrified that it was 4,500LKR entry fee AUD45 just to get in! Our guide took us to all the vantage points for photos and was very obliging.
