What people are saying about Ella, Sri Lanka
I chose this program because I saw in the advertisement, that there are hundreds of elephants in this national parc. Unfortunately the weather was too rainy, lets say stormy on that day and because of this reason I could not see so many elephants. This program was scheduled in the afternoon and how I' ve just mentioned before, it was raining. But in the morning was sunny, so why I was disappointed, that why the agency did not organize this trip in the morning, instead of the afternoon. I know, you can never count with the weather, but if they check the weather forecast before, they could have seen that in the morning was sunny and in the afternoon was between 80 to 100 % chance to rain ... I was the only person on this tour, and I was available in the morning too, so I don't understand why the agency did not recommend to me this tour in the morning.
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.
Our driver Sanju was extremely efficient and friendly and we would not have been able to cover all three sites without his expert navigation. He went out of his way to check what time the train passed along the Nine Arch Bridge so we could get there on time and experience the moment. We had lunch at a local restaurant which was absolutely delicious (we were given the choice to order any dish off their menu).
Engaged this tour package and was assigned a driver cum tour guide, Mr Sanju, who was very experienced and brought us around. He showed us some of the other spots during the tour as well. He bought me to a good spot to take my photo of the train too. Had a great time with him as a guide! Thank you!
The tour was amazing! I loved it. The tour guide was full of experience and knowledge. He knew exactly what he was doing. He went out of his way to make me have an incredible experience. Thank you so much for being an awesome part of my trip to Sri Lanka.
