This is honestly on of the best city tours I have experienced. Due to COVID we were the only ones in the bus which made it a much more enjoyable experience as we really got to set the pace of the tour. Kurama was an excellent tour guide having in depth knowledge of the countries history and that of the locales we visited. The museum, independence square and the temple are just a few of the several places we got to visit. All in all a perfect outing except for the torrential downpour at the very end, but that is to be expected in Sri Lanka. Highly recommend this tour and be sure to ask for Kurama.
The tour was good, I liked all the activities and sites that were included. My guide was on time, effective, and did a fine job. The tour was as promised. I save my 5-star ratings for tours where the guide is really enthusiastic, tells great stories, creates connection, entertains, and educates. It's a high bar, but some guides manage it. This tour did what it promised, though - got me out to see the sights of Colombo and gave me an overview.
The driver and guide were very friendly and wanted to showcase the best of the local produce of local areas on the way to Dambulla and Sigiriya. Sigiriya was particularly impressive - it actually surpassed my expectations. Both breakfast and lunch restaurants they took us to were delicious!
Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip to Kandy! CJ was an excellent guide, fantastic driver, and extremely knowledgeable. He went out of the way to make the day the most plesant and timeworthly experience possible. I highly recommend taking this trip.
Both sites are fantastic. I was with one other solo traveler, she was expecting guided tours of both sites and was disappointed, so it's important to have the right expectation. Guides are available at the sites, but not included.
