Our guide for the day was Adhil who picked us up prompt at 7am from the hotel. He spoke excellent English and was really helpful and knowledgable. He was a safe driver and took time to explain the history of each place to allow us the freedom to explore when we got there.
We visited a herbal price plantation, sigiyra rock and dambulla caves as we thought fitting in the safari was going to be too much - right choice.
We got back to the hotel at 7 pm after a very good day.
Fully Recommend this tour but think carefully about fitting too much into one day as travelling between each site takes a lot of time, but worth it when you get to each.

This trip was one of the top highlights of our whole trip and we made sure we covered a lot of Sri Lanka while we were there. our tour guide Azmy picked us up from our hotel in the hills of Kandy and took us on an amazing 12 hour adventure. We went to the Damulla caves and these were brilliant, Azmy was very insightful giving us lots of information about everything we were seeing. He gave us time to explore the caves on our own and we really felt like he added so much to our enjoyment of this part. We then drive to Sigiriya and climbed the amazing Sigiriya rock which was just breathtaking and something I was desperate to do as soon as I had booked the flights. From here we were taken to a lovely restaurant for a well deserved rest and some amazing Sri Lankan food. From here our Jeep picked us up and took us to the National Park where we saw in excess of 35 elephants as well as other animals. It was perfect. Azmy then drove us all the way back to Kandy. Although there was a lot of traffic Azmy was relaxed and used to the traffic of Sri Lanka, he got us home in the perfect time to get ready and go out to celebrate New Years eve. An amazing tour and a perfect tour guide. Thank you so much Azmy x

Azmy was our driver and guide. He was attentive, knowledgeable and a good driver. Azmy was very organised. We needed decent coffee: he know where to go. An emergency toilet break:he knew a restaurant where we could use the facilities. The three of us wanted to make the most of the day so had arranged with the company to depart Kandy at 7am. Visited Sri Muthumari Amman Kovil Hindu Temple in Matale then we chose to stop at a herbal and spice farm with some tourist attractions. Arrived at Dambulla visiting the UNESCO heritage complex. Then onto Sigiriya and climbed the 1000 + steps to the top. Then had lunch on the way back to Dambulla. Got picked up by jeep at restaurant and had 3 hours on Safari. The guide our company /Azmy organised took us way out of the way of other tourists and we saw plenty of elephants plus water buffalo and many birds. We got back to Kandy 8.30pm. The day was spectacular. In terms of readers thinking of booking this day trip I would recommend it and there guys without reservation.

A great action packed day trip. All 3 places visited are a highlight on their own, and with this tour you can combine them all in one day without making it fee rushed. The communication and organization were perfect. Our guide Azmy was very nice, on time, and explained everything we needed or wanted to know. Excellent service.

Let me just start off by saying I had the most amazing tour with such a genuine and honest tour guide. Ilham R. Picked us up precisely on time and took us to every destination we wanted, I felt like I was in control the whole time of the tour. We started the day by heading directly to a spice garden where they took us to see how traditional herbal medicines are made. He even offered if we wanted to stop for lunch which we did at a small cafe on the side of the road to eat some traditional Sri Lankan food. We then headed off to see the Dambulla Royal Cave Temple and climbed up many steps to reach the beautiful scenery. Ilham made sure we were comfortable and we never felt rushed at any time. Afterwards he asked if we wanted to climb Sigiriya or the other mountain to get a good view. He even offered to take us to both if we wanted. We decided to head to an elephant safari which was absolutely amazing!! We got within a few feet of wild elephants!! I can truly say that at the end of the tour ilham wasent just a tour guide but also our friend. Ilham made this tour the most memorable experience I've had in Sri Lanka. I 100% recommend taking a tour with him!

This was by far the highlight of our visit to Sri Lanka. Our guide Amzy picked us up from the Buena Vista hotel at 6.30am for a 12 hour adventure, and what a day we were treated to by him. We started at Dambulla Cave Temple which was quite simply stunning. Amzy talked us through the history of all the caves which made it so much more enjoyable to hear about. After that we went on to Sigiriya Rock, which we managed to climb and were amazed at the stunning views from the summit. So glad we did it!
Amzy then took us to a lovely restaurant for lunch after which we began such an amazing Elephant Safari at Minneriya National Park. All in all we had such a fantastic day, made all the better by our great guide Amzy. I cannot praise him highly enough and thank you my friend for making our day so very special and sorry for dragging you around the supermarket where once again you were a star!

We had a great travel with Azmy as our guide.
We were picked up from the hotel in the morning, first we went to Dambulla with several stops at other temples, then drove to Sigiriya, after lunch went to the National Park and in the evening, a bit tired but very happy, went back to the hotel. Great thing about this places is that they are very different, so over the journey you don't get overwhelmed with only cultural aspect or only nature.
Also our guide Azmy was great, he was very professional and friendly, told us a lot about the sights we saw and we had a very interesting conversation about Sri Lankas' culture, history and current life of the island.
Overally - highly recommended.

We had so much fun on this day trip from Kandy. Azmy picked us up from our hotel in the morning, which was very convenient. Even though curfew was active, Azmy was able to coordinate with colleagues to determine if/when each of the stops would be open and we were able to see everything we had planned. Seeing elephants in their natural habitat had to be one of the best parts of our entire vacation. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

This trip was amazing.

first of all amzy was on time and waiting for me right outside the hotel. He made me do lots of visits in one day (Dambulla, Sigiriya, Minneriya, botanical garden, temple) which allowed me to spend only two days in Kandy and to see almost everything. He also organized himself very well to pick me up by jeep for the safari. He also waited for me while I ate and always tried to help me. Thanks again for such a wonderful day!

We spent today travelling with Adhil, he was really friendly and just the right amount of briefing us on the history and letting us enjoy the ride. Hiking up Sigiriya and Elephant watching in Hurulu Eco Park the highlights. A huge day from dusk till dawn.
