We had a great day with lots of different impressions. We started with a hike, which can optionally be swapped for a temple visit, and then we continued on to various sights. We had lunch in a small local restaurant. There, on the recommendation of our guide, we tried Kottu. It was so delicious that we ate Kottu again and again throughout our vacation, but none was as good as the one in Ella. We also took lots of photos as a souvenir. It was a very successful day.

Very well organized tour containing all of Ellas main attractions. Sana was a perfect guide, welcoming, thoughtful and knowledgeable about Ella and the whole Sri Lankan culture. Pacing of the activities was on point, mix of demanding and relaxing points were perfectly balanced. Food was also a big plus! Can recommend to anyone who wants a good overview of what Ella has to offer. We had a perfect day that we will think of fondly.

Thank you very much for this incredible day. Everything was well organized and we felt safe the whole time. The climbing equipment was very good and well maintained, the guides on site were very well trained. Special thanks to our TukTuk driver Jeewa. He is a very warm and engaging person. It was wonderful...

Amazing, totally amazing!!! And our guide Sana is such a special person, he does his work with a lot of passion, trying to make this experience marvellous - and he was successful 😉

Everything was amazing. Our driver was very helpful and made our trip memorable.
