This tour was ok but the journey is far too long to do in one day. Spent most of the time on the road in pretty heavy traffiic. Kandy is quite an interesting town with an attractive lake. Palace and temple visit was interesting. From start to finish the tour seemed to be one long sales trip.

The trip was very disappointing. The guide was more of a driver than a guide and although answered some of the questions that we asked of him, he didn't volunteer any information, at least for the first part of the day. The tour was one of commercial enterprises/shops with tips demanded in most places regardless of the performance or enthusiasm of the local shop guides. The guide asked us what our itinerary was and as we didn't have one printed out we couldn't tell him. As he didn't have one, and didn't volunteer any information we found out which factory we were going to only after arriving there. In Kandy we were stuck in traffic for an hour so only saw the main temple. The guide simply showed us the door, and didn't offer any explanation for the temple or what it's history or significance was except to tell us it dated from the last king, which meant nothing to us. The provided lunch was average. The driver was courteous at all times and at the end of the day went out of his way to show us several gem shops which resulted in a good purchase. However, unless you are happy to see only spice, tea, batik etc shops and nothing of Kandy, best to avoid this commercial tour. It is long - 6am start and we got back to Colombo at 10.30pm.

Your tour guide is less of a guide and more of a driver/wise guy shuffling you from one tourist trap to the next for his kick backs. Initially I was quite naive to this but toward the end of the day when taken to a tourist trap for traditional clothing that should have been inexpensive, I became alarmed and enlightenedno pun intended. The temple of the tooth is brilliant and I wish we had more time there. We ended up there toward the end of the day since we were delayed by all the traps and were too exhausted to enjoy it. The tea factory was actually just a shop and not a factory at all. The wood carving place was beautiful but also mainly a warehouse for shopping. The gem museum was also more store than museum. The buffet we were taken to was delicious. Our driver told us it was really cheap at 1000 rupees. If he only knew that our guide from the day before took us to a buffet for 200 rupees a person. After this tour my husband and I regretted traveling to Kandy at all and realized we actually did better shopping and touring on the days that we set out on our own or with the help of a local tuktuk driver. In fact, I probably won't use Viator again after this tour.

Quite average. You get what is mentioned in the package. as you should, this is not a cheap tour. All very nice and delivered as expected. The only thing is the driver suggesting more tours only one hour into this one. It was ok and I am going to leave it with that.

Lovely trip and would recommend.Its a long drive but worth it. A highlight for us was the elephant orphanage, but lunch was terrific and the sights fantastic. The Temple of the Tooth was excellent and we also really enjoyed the spice garden. We were on a cruise so we only had one day, so we saw a huge amount on this trip.

The Buddhist temple is worth the long drive. We had lunch at Helga's Folly - a very unusual hotel/restaurant up the mountain. The chicken curry lunch was really great, and the atmosphere is beyond description.

Loved this tour!!! Our tour guide, Damitha, was wonderful. He took us everywhere we wanted to see. The elephant sactuary was not part of the tour but after I requested it, he took us. Loved the elephants! The temples were gorgeous. The jewlery store we went to was so friendly and offered gorgeous items. The lunch provided was fabulous.
