What people are saying about Kandy

Excellent excursion with aaron. Very punctual, kind guide who made us visit all the important corners of kandy. We left at 6 am this morning and returned at 8:30 pm because he really took the time to explain and show us around. Kandy is a must in srilanka that I advise you to do with this tour operator. Look forward to seeing you again tomorrow for our next Aaron excursion.

The person who drove us was very sweet and respectful. We felt very safe. We were just 3 girls traveling so he made us very comfortable and was patient. He also made the right stops for lunch etc. Overall I would totally choose getyourguide again for future trips

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.

We had a good day trip. Kandy as a city doesn’t have too much to offer, and we are glad we made this booking to spend a day fruitfully. The chauffeur guide was very polite and friendly.

Great guide, comfortable car for a long trip, an interesting tour. Recommend.
