    Guide made the trip very enjoyable and interesting. Would have prefered a few more cultural activities like visiting a pottery making place or batik factory. Hotels were for the most part very comfortable . Would have preferred if a few were closer to town.

    I loved the whole trip but my favourite experiences were Climbing Sigiriya Rock, seeing elephants on a game drive in Kaudulla National Park, cycling through villages in Giritale and having lunch with a local family and white water rafting in Kitulgala.

      I am a solo traveler and have used TourRadar before. I like the fact that they don't hide any fees, such as those applied to solo travelers. Finding the right tour is also very easy using the website and I got almost instant response from the operator confirming my journey.
