As I’m travelling solo and doing only a 20hrs connection in Sri Lanka, I had no time to waste, so I booked a guide from Kingfisher tours and they sent Ferose Masse to look after me.
Ferose was extremely friendly and helpful, no words can describe how much he helped me throughout the entire day!
First off, he picked me up at the airport 2 hrs prior the time we had arranged because my flight arrived early, drove me to a breakfast place, and as I had forgotten to take cash out, he lended me cash to spend during the day.
From the breakky shop we went on to the Spice Garden experience, which is very nice, I learned a lot about what plants, herbs and natural medicine can do, after the quick tour around the plants we headed to the Elephant activity point, were I was able, for the first time ever, to see, wash, take photos etc of an elephant, what a magical moment!!
Then we had lunch, which was provided by the company, the restaurant was very nice and lunch was plenty of options, all with extremely large portions!
For last but no least, he drove me to Sigiriyu rock fortress, where I was able to experience one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen!
After spending the entire day driving me around (lots and lots of driving), telling me about the culture, food, being very nice and friendly, Ferose dropped me off at the airport.
I highly recommend Kingfisher tours, not only the driver spoke english, but the car was nice and tidy, I will definitely come back.
They made the most of my day here!
Thank you, Ferose!
