The guide and driver were very kind to drive us in heavy traffic to St Anthony's Church even though it was not on the itinerary but it should be as this is the most important site in Colombo for Christian westerners so that we could pay our respects after the atrocities by Islamic suicide bombers at Easter. The Christian worshippers are still very noticeably traumatised and our hearts went out to these tragic people. God bless them and may they be allowed to live in peace by these evil Islamic fanatics. Just totally heartbreaking but we were so glad that we got to visit this sacred church now protected by armed soldiers to show our support for them and Christianity. May these innocent souls rest in peace x
The driver and guide were very friendly and wanted to showcase the best of the local produce of local areas on the way to Dambulla and Sigiriya. Sigiriya was particularly impressive - it actually surpassed my expectations. Both breakfast and lunch restaurants they took us to were delicious!
Our guide Jeev was amazing. I actually enjoyed interacting with the guide more than the excursions. As far as the excursions we enjoyed the boat tour. It was informative and interesting. We also enjoyed the restaurant that the guide chose to eat lunch. Mama Coral Reef.
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.
Both sites are fantastic. I was with one other solo traveler, she was expecting guided tours of both sites and was disappointed, so it's important to have the right expectation. Guides are available at the sites, but not included.
