3 Days Tour to Kandy Nuwara Eliya & Sigiriya from Colombo

21 reviews
Rounding up inland Sri Lanka’s sights from Colombo by yourself means self-driving or hopping between trains, buses, and cabs. This private 3-day tour takes away the transport hassles: providing a private chauffeured vehicle to ferry you from sight to sight. Discover Kandy’s must-sees, and explore a tea plantation, Nuwara Eliya, and Sigiriya, all in one tour, with two nights' 3-star accommodation and breakfasts and dinners included.
$217.00 per adult

We had only a short time, but were very impressed with the artistry and quality of the presentations. It appeals to international tourists as well as locals; English explations abound.

Detailed, organized and spacious place. There is an entrance fee. Don’t miss out if you are in Kandy, especially if you are visiting “Maligawa”.

Included in price of Temple of Tooth. You could easily spend 2 hours here reading everything, even if you rush through it’s still an hour. Don’t skip it, it’s really cool and the museum is unique and well maintained.

The World Buddhist Museum is a bit hard to find. It claims to be on the grounds of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, but you actually go through a gate with a guard to access the right area. No good signage to get you there. Upon arrival, you will need to remove your shoes. We thought the design was interesting: the museum featured a room highlighting how Buddhism is practiced in various Buddhist countries, such as India, Cambodia, Laos, and Sri Lanka. Very nice displays but I was not able to learn why there are differences among the countries' practices. Entrance to this museum is included in your Temple of the Sacred Tooth ticket, so worth a look when you are there.
