    It was easy to pay money, then have the trip organised for me. It was cost effective, I saw everything I could have wanted plus more, it was relaxed but plenty to do, the optional extras were great.

    Perfect organization of the trip; great, sympathetic, knowledgeable and fun tour guide; great group atmosphere; top drivers; nice hotels and home stay (just one (in Nuwara Eliya) was a bit below standards)
