Day-trip from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya & Tea Highlands - Highlight Tour

Two of Sri Lanka's most scenic mountain roads are between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya: A5 crossing the tea region of Nuwara Eliya and A7 along Hatton crossing Sri Lanka's largest tea region, that of Dimbula. Our sightseeing day-trip includes both of them to show you the very heart of the island's central highlands. Starting at 800m above sea level, you will reach an altitude of 2031 m (at Top Pass) and spend half of the tour above 1800 m, which is the best altitude for growing tea. Almost all day long, you can enjoy highland vistas and the intense green colour of tea plantations stretching till the horizon. You will take breaks at several waterfalls and a spice garden and a tea factory, plus half an hour hiking between tea bushes at a very scenic spot, and having a small city tour in our “Little England”.

If you are looking for a place which is out of daily hustle of the city and love to be with tranquilizing nature then 'First house' in Mihintale is the one you need. Hosted by Nuwan a modest man who is well experienced in tourism industry and is ready to extend all possible help to plan your trip. His mother a very soft spoken lady, great cook and takes all the pain happily to maintain all house and premise. Rohan, Nuwan elder brother a real kind hearted person who always spare some time from his busy schedule to make your smooth visits to all nearby tourist attractions with 'Rangana' by his side. Rangana is well behaved and has articulated the best tourist guide in his tuk tuk ride. Having hot Sri Lankan breakfast in the varandha whilst watching and listening to the chirps of all the birds around makes me relive my best memories. Even, I was fortunate to attend Rohan's family function and short tour for wild life watching. For me the First house will be certain place in the next Sri Lankan visit to meet my buddy Nuwan, Rohan & Loving Amma

Everyone should do this tour! Mihintale is a wonderfull city with many impressive places. Our perfectly organized guide Rangan showed us the main sights like the Stupa and Mihintales highest mountain. Also he showed us less popular places that were even prettier and had a great view over the whole city. We could have lunch which was cooked by his mother, it was traditionally and really delicious. Rangan, speaks good English and can give you interesting and relevant information about the sights, actually about the whole city. He is very friendly and helpful, also he grew up in Mihintale so he knows a lot of secret spots and is happy to show them to you. To some spots you have to take many stairs, which isn't always that easy, but absolutely worth it! Views like these you have only few times in your life. Also guides like these are rare, so take your chance and book the tour. My friend and I had an amazing day and recommend that tour to absolutely everyone! It is worth every penny. And it is super easy to plan it. Just text Nuwar and he will organize one of the best days of your whole trip. Also he and his guides are very flexible and spontaneous. We are not only happy to had this tour, but to met such great people who made Sri Lanka even prettier.

We contacted Lanka Excursion Holidays to arrange a ten day driver to take us round Sri Lanka as part of out trip. We wanted to arrange our own accommodation but have a driver to be on hand. We could not have been luckier with the amazing driver we had in Ansar. Ansar understood immediately that we wanted to take an easy pace visiting places off the tourist trail. Ansar had a brilliant sense of humour and was really good company. He took us to small remote restaurants that we would never have found where we ate the most delicious Sri Lankan food. His knowledge of culture and local history interjecting useful and fascinating information whilst always being discrete and respectful of our space was masterly to the level of diplomatic. We were often spontaneous with our plans, deciding to visit places on a whim or change times at short notice, Ansar was always accommodation often suggestion options to visit multiple sites by changing the order to maximise the time. We were very lucky to celebrate two birthdays on our trip and Ansar arranged a special restaurant with a great menu, cake and a firework spectacular. Truly memorable. As seasoned travellers we were weary of arranging a driver to escort us on our trip but as we reached the end of our travels we all agreed the whole experience was a Stella success enhanced by Ansar to make this trip truly outstanding. Sri Lanka is now in our hearts and we will definitely be back and make sure we call Lanka Excursion Holidays the minute we book the flights.

Our party of five were collected by Ansar Foray at our villa in Ahangama. We had booked an 8 day tour of cultural and nature sites. Ansar drove a very comfortable and clean seven seater, air-conditioned vehicle. We visited twelve cultural sites and a national park with elephants (which was excellent, lots of elephants). We learned a vast amount about Buddhism and the national cuisine at a cookery class. Ansar is extremely knowledgeable and whatever we asked of him, he was always happy to oblige. He had knowledge of things off the beaten track, which was a fabulous bonus. We completely trusted his judgement. Ansar actually became a friend, due to his very happy disposition, helpfulness and natural courtesy. He even arranged a surprise birthday party a restaurant, for one of our group, complete with a birthday cake. It was very sweet of him to do this. Ansar also had a wealth of knowledge for hotels and villas in which to stay. We had such a great time, and laughed alot throughout our time with him. He is also a very careful driver and felt safe at all times. I will have no hesitation in recommending the company to family and friends. If you want a stress free visit to this beautiful country and it's friendly people, then look no further. And if you're worried about the cost for a driver and guide, then you'll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable it is. If you want a hassle free visit SL, then check these guys out. 10/10
