    Thanks so much for a wonderful tour. My host was very professional and friendly. It was a great way to get to some of the further destination from Kandy in one day. Sigiriya was a good experience, but Pidurangala was a much more peasant hike: much less tourists, much cheaper, better hiking experience, the same great views. The village cultural experience was very good too, you get to experience a good village meal next to the river. My host was very friendly and helpful

    It was a very nice trip! My guide is very responsive and attentive. He helped me take photos and videos, tried to do everything beautifully. He did not think about time and completely devote oneself to his work. Overall, I really liked the trip!

    It was an incredible experience , other than the usual spots, the village tour was unexpected as we got to taste the local authentic home cooked food. There was a lady in a hut, presumably that was her house where she lives with her husband, she cooked Rice, potato curry, cabbage chutney, coconut garlic chutney (few more dishes which I have forgotten the names of) all of that was really delicious. The cab driver (Lakshitha) is a humble man, he waited paitently for us wherever we went. All in all its been a wonderful experience.

    Was a good trip overall. The lunch at the village was the one that made my day.

    Thisara sorted out the booking for us which was super easy with them, & they answered all our questions promptly & clearly – thank you. It was Heshan who was our driver for the day and part guide for some of the trip, and he was such a humble friendly guy who was happy to chat and answer any questions when needed. Harshan is our guide for the climb up to Sigiriya Rock, who we met on arrival. Hashan was a superb guide, was so informative about the site, paced us well up the climb with appropriate breaks and sharing of information about different parts. He also took some great photos for us. The Royal Cave Temple was fantastic and it was nice to get a lovely meal at the Pelvehera Cultural village, as well as a bonus boat ride. Lastly Heshan guided us up Pidurangala Rock which again was a rewarding summit after a climb and a tight scramble. Despite getting stuck in some bad traffic on the way back due to a local cultural festival, Heshan was patient throughout. Thanks to all!!!!
