This was a very well organised trip which was in two parts – 9 days touring by coach and an additional 4 nights at a beach hotel. This was my first trip with Kuoni having previously done long haul holidays with Journeys of Distinction (now part of Kuoni) and I was very impressed by the professional and friendly way in which the trip was put together. It was quite strenuous in places – for example the walk up the rock fortress of Sigiriya which was well worth the climb with amazing views from the top. An alternative was offered for anyone not wishing to do the climb. Our hotels were superb and in particular the unusual hotel Kandalama which was built in the rocks and the tea plantation Nywara Eliya which we reached travelling by train up into the mountains giving the most dramatic views. There are too many wonderful experiences to mention but one of the most memorable was a visit to an elephant sanctuary. There are so many sights to see in Sri Lanka that an escorted tour is definitely the best way to cover as many as possible. The addition of our 4 night stay at the beautiful beach resort of Negombo (our choice of hotel was the Jetwing Sea) was a beautiful relaxing end to a memorable trip. The people of Sri Lanka made the trip so much more special and I would certainly recommend this holiday to anyone wanting a trip which captures the essence of this special island.
