I and my wife took a 3-day tour to Kandy, Nuwara Eliya & Sigiriya from Colombo. We were picked up from our hotel at the scheduled time and driven to Kandy by Bishan our young driver, guide and companion. Our accommodation was in Kandy for 2 nights. This hotel was a bit away from the town centre, but quite nice with very friendly staff and good quality dinner and breakfast (included in the tour). Bishan took us to all the places mentioned in the itinerary. He was also professional and flexible - we could swap time/day for some of the places. We happened to be in Kandy during the Esala Perahera festival, which is a very busy time there. Our guide was very helpful in arranging for us to watch the festival at night. It was such a wonderful experience with decorated elephants, dance and music (Kandayan Ves dance in particular). The hilly tea plantation area of Nuwara Eliya was very nice and cool. Sigiriya was a bit too hot and very crowded. I think it's a bit overrated - the paintings/frescos were the most interesting objects there for us. We were dropped back at our hotel in Colombo without any problem. Sri Lanka is small but a very diverse country. We found it is quite safe and peaceful. Wish we had more time there. The only bit we didn't like, which is there everywhere these days with arranged tours, is that you are taken to some place for shopping (e.g. a gem factory or a wood factory) along the way, which eats into your time even if you don't want to buy anything. Overall, a great tour with good value, and a great guide.

This trip is a great way to see some of Sri Lanka in a short time. Our driver was flexible, punctual and informative. The agency was helpful.We were lucky that our trip coincided with the Kandy festival in early August- a memorable experience and strongly recommended if you can do it, but this time of year can be wet so bring rain gear and/or umbrellas. We upgraded to stay in Hotel Topaz in Kandy- recommended. The best day was the last- the Rock plus we added an elephant safari which was great.
There is lots of time spent in the car- probably around 4 hours on day one and two and 6 on day 3 but there is lots to see as you travel.
If we were to repeat, we would add an extra day in Dambula to see a couple of the ancient cities nearby, or maybe skip the second day trips to the tea plantation, and waterfalls.

I am really glad we chose to do this, as it was worth the long trip to see everything. We didn't have long in Sri Lanka so we chose to do the 3-Day trip,  We were lucky that our car was very new the ride was quite comfortable . The tour guide was good, offering many interesting facts and background information. I would say within short time period we have cover major sits of Sri Lanka. I think the price is fair, the meals included at the hotel  is 3 courses and delicious (the hotel is really worth for money). If you have short time and really want to see kandy, Nuwareliya, Sigiriya, Elephant safari I would recommend this tour. Must thanks to the company because Every day they calling & make sure everything going well. I am really honored I got to experience true Sri Lanka culture that is such a big part of srilanka

Thank you... Thank you.... Thank you...

I have travelled to 55 countries & this tour with a private car with AC and the driver was the best. Guide CJ was the best of all tour guide in the world. He was with us 24hrs in those three days amazing guide and knowledge, I was so in love with the tour and the places we have been, Sri Lanka was amazing but the Apple vacation was the best service I ever had in all my tours around the world. Every place we went is worth the trip and it is so cheap for this price.

What a fantastic trip, with a fantastic guide, Keerthe. It was our first time in Sri Lanka and we chose the trip because it covered many aspect of heritage, cities and mountains. It didn't disappoint! Our guide was sensitive to our needs and made sure we experienced so many things. We loved the heritage and religious sites, and even managed to climb the Rock! It was wonderful to see the elephants in their natural habitat, our grandson loved the photographs. We were well looked after, which enabled us to enjoy the experience even more. We truly love Sri Lanka!

We did this tour from 27th to 29th of December and had Janith as a guide and driver.
It was amazing experience. The center of Sri-Lanka is very interesting and exciting, you can enjoy mountain views, buddists and hindu temples, tea plantation, botanical gardens and national park. Program is very flexible, you can add or skip some attractions.
Car was very comfortable, air-conditioned and with wifi. Its important, because we spent a lot of time in the car.
Our hotel was very nice and has beautiful view of the city.
But the best of our tour was Janith! He is perfect driver and very interesting guide. He answered all our questions, was very friendly and helpful. He really cared about us.
If you want to get exciting experience in very comfortable way, you should do this tour!

After we landed in Colombo we didn't have any idea about where to go or what places to visit and we were lucky to find this tour, we were able to see a lot of what Sri Lanka has to offer .
Special thanks to our guide CJ who took real care of us and made sure that we stay safe and happy.
We highly recommend this trip that is underrated for what she have to offer.

Last week we went on a holiday vacation to Srilanka through Apple Vacations, Colombo. We have done several international holiday tours, and undoubtedly this we will rate in the top 5. Right from the day we started planning for the trip, Mr. Jeevan from Apple vacations, had been promptly answering all our queries that gave us a great confidence to go with Apple Vacations. We were promptly received in the Colombo airport and everything went so smoothly thanks to Jeevan and our excellent driver Mr Aaron who was taking us around the four days we were in Sri Lanka. He chose the best time for the Safari so that we could see some 300 elephants wandering in one place. And our trip to Nuwara Eliya was very relaxing. As we were vegetarians and it is difficult to find good vegetarian eating place in Srilanka, Mr Aaron took personal care to ensure that we were treated with best vegetarian food wherever we went. Overall it was a great and memorable vacation thanks to Mr Jeevan and Aaron of Apple Vacations. We would love to go with them again.
