Full description
Your tour begins as you are picked up from your hotel at 1:30PM for an unforgettable afternoon in the city of Kandy. You will first visit the Peradeniya Botanical Garden, which is renowned for bundles of varieties of plants including orchids, spices, medicinal plants, and palm trees. At 4:00PM you will enjoy an upper lake drive, also enjoying the birds-eye view of Kandy before proceeding to a Kandyan cultural center. It is at this cultural center that you will enjoy a memorable cultural show, which starts at 4:30PM. At 6:00PM you will visit the Kandy Temple where you will attend the Pooja Ceremony. Offerings of flowers will be laid before the sacred tooth’s chamber, prayers will fill the room, and drummers will fill the air with rhythmic song. People will also line up for the chance to catch a glimpse of the golden case up close. Following this spiritual experience, you will be returned to your hotel at which point your tour will end.

The tour is not recommended and was not carried out as described. We didn't take a trip on Lake Superior but were dumped at a jewelry store and a Spice Garden although we didn't want to buy anything. The jewelry dealer almost pushed us to buy something. The traditional dance was purely for tourists, lasted an hour and took place in a large (not nicely furnished) hall. The guide told us almost nothing and just gave us answers to our questions.
