What People Are Saying About Colombo
Terrific. We saw so much and the driver was very happy to stop as we liked. Day 1 was very full and the elephant orphanage was amazing, with the Buddha Tooth Temple also a real highlight. A guide made all the difference at both sites. The Herb Garden was not worth the time - very uninterested formulaic delivery by the site's guide and a very hard sell. I would recommend this be withdrawn from the program (check out reviews of this place on tripadvisor) or a better garden sourced. We have visited similar in India and found them more "genuine". Tea factory was very good. Driver navigated the chatoic roads and heavy Xmas traffic well and was awlays early. Hotel accommodation was also excellent. Well worth doing. Thank you!
We were delighted with this trip overall. The only things preventing the fifth star were : Too many hours of travel without a break. Sitting in a seat, however comfortable, for three hours at a time is hard and to do it on three separate days was tough. Whilst the first two hotels provided excellent service in great environments, the final hotel was a let-down. There was a pool available, but it was a half mile walk away in another hotel and was cold and uninviting; The food was beautifully displayed on our plates but there was little choice and no great quality; The view was of a local school and the sides of other buildings. On the plus side, our driver was excellent: He was always polite and cheerful, very patient and friendly and spoke good English, even though he didn't always understand our spoken English. We visited all of the factories and workshops on offer (sales showrooms). The optional Village Tour was great fun, but the Safari trip was poor value for money.
