We had a lovely day with a fantastic tourist guide/driver. Sigiriya and the cave temples were amazing and our guide provided us wide knowledge about Sri Lanka overall and about the visited places. I would highly recommend this trip for any traveller. Everything was great and well organized.
This day tour was brilliant our guide Priyanka was fantastic very informative and knowledgable it's a fair old claim to the top and the castle ruins but it's more than worth it lunch was lovely the wood carving factory was amazing and the cave temples were out of this world worth every penny
the trip was long 10 hrs drive total but in worth ot go! gorgeous!!!
Long drive but it was a fun day.
we were picked up at 6am at mount lavinia hotel. we took a 5hr journey to the rock fortress. we were allowed 2-3 hours there. however we did not go to the top and only was there for 1hr. it is a very steep climb to the top and not for people who are not keen or is unable to climb. then we drove 5min to the lunch place. the tour was supposed to include lunch but we had to pay for our own lunch. then we drove 15min to a temple. another steep climb up to the top.
we then drove for 6hours back to our hotel as there was a jam at night and reached our hotel at about 7-8pm
our driver was more just a driver and not a tour guide.
i personally dont recommend this tour unless you are up for climbing and driving alot. the drive was quite painful. in that day, we were in the car for 11 hours in total and we didnt stop at all. driving in sri lanka is quite bad as there is usually only 1 lane. expressways dont reach there so we take the routes through the towns. the tuk tuks drive recklessly so the car starts and stops alot and there is A LOT of honking. at the end, you will get a headache and feel claustrophobic.
