I had a lovely day with Ruwan! It was pouring rain when we climbed Sigiriya and possibly the busiest time of year because of holidays but I still enjoyed the experience. Ruwan was able to tell me about the history along the way and show me significant areas of the ruins up top. After Sigiriya we went to a restaurant where I had all you can eat meal and some tea before we moved on to Dambulla temple cave. This was a beautiful spot and Ruwan did a wonderful job of explaining the history, architecture and the practice of Theravada Buddhism. It was wonderful! Ruwan is super friendly and open and very willing to discuss Sri Lanka’s history and culture at length. As a historian and museum professional I really appreciated this! Thank you Ruwan for a great day!

Wir können diese Entdeckung absolut weiterempfehlen. Es ist eine tolle Tour von Kandy aus zu mehreren wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten Sri Lankas. Ruwan ist ein sehr guter Tour Guide, er ist mit Herz und Seele dabei und vermittelt sein umfangreiches Wissen gerne und wohlwollend weiter. Die Tour war sehr umfangreich und wahnsinnig beeindruckend. Toll war auch dass wir an unserem Appartement abgeholt wurden. Ruwan ist ein sehr guter Fahrer, wir haben uns die ganze Zeit sehr sicher und gut betreut gefühlt.
