    We were doing a little hiking to Little Adam's Peak, for me it was very easy to manage. The view was really nice, but the weather was not perfect 100 %, because a part was sunny, but also a bit misty, but I guess it is always something similar, so don't hope for "the perfect instagram picture". :D There is also a zipline, what you can try it, I guess it's fun :) (it is not included in this price) The Nine Arch bridge is amazing itself, don't skip it, if you are in Ella, Sri Lanka. We were also waiting for "the old, red train", it was cool to see it. My tour guide came to pick me up with his tuk-tuk, it was very comfortable and also a nice experience. He was very nice and kind with me during the day. This trip is defintitely worth for money.

I participated alone on that day, but I enjoyed it very much throughout the tour! The guide speaks fluent English. I wasn't good at English, and sometimes I had difficulty communicating. Was. Hiking on the mountain path was a bit difficult, but I could see the spectacular scenery and meet many memorable scenes. It was good that the guide took a lot of photos. Ceylon tea and coconut biscuit which I drank in a coconut shell tea cup prepared by the guide on the rocky place with a superb view were very delicious.

Very good experience. We got to see a lot and had a really sweet guide! There was plenty of time for us to do and see what we wanted! Would definitely recommend this tour and guide.

Incredibly cool experience to go up on Ella Rocks. There is a heavy and an easier road and when you come up you have the world view

Great tour with very nice guide. He went out of his way to show us the most beautiful photo spots.
