I was pleased with our tour for the most part. All our hotels were very nice the one in Kandy was the one we liked the least - the bathroom was gross- old, with blacken caulk, there were hardly any electrical outlets, and their service was not the greatest Our guides were good - but for the one at the Temple of the Tooth. This whole night was a very bad experience - One thing with some the guides is that they want you to go with them for the tour and than walk back to do pictures ? Some of these areas are huge, crowded and its hot there, so walking back through is not really an option . All the places we saw were WONDERFUL and the people here are very NICE - We loved the Food and the History of the country - I'm very glad we did this location for vacation. Our driver was a very nice man - he did extra things like taking us to the post office to send out our boxes of souvenirs - His English was okay but there were times where we did have difficulties communicating with him. He was very skilled at driving and we made excellent time getting from place to place. I think he did a very good job for us. Sri Lanka has a lot to offer and this tour hits it all. I was sad that we didn't get to see much in Moonstones and I thought what they had to offer were not the greatest quality all small and not much color - very few stones were actually set in jewelry and they were way toooo expensive. Our Whale watching tour was kind of a miserable day - uncomfortable seats, on a crowded boat- icky food - HOT HOT HOT - we saw one sperm whale for about 2 minutes after being out there for over 6 hours - I know you can't control nature and that's the beauty of it - but was still disappointing and uncomfortable. The dock area was disgusting filthy - there were dogs eat trash, a guy threw a rock at one of them and this poor dog cried for 5 minutes. I'm sure he broke a bone, made me sick. It didn't set the day out on a positive note. I personally would not recommend this tour.
