Really enjoyed the tour although it was tough trekking up Sigiriya rock in the blistering heat but well worth it. Our driver Dhamitha was such a nice guy and made our trip highly enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it
Great chance to see the interior of the country. The nearly four hour drive to get there is a test of patience due to the vehicle and lot traffic that is constant all along the roads. The cave temple tour is interesting, make sure you dress appropriately i.e. long shorts and be prepared to take off your footwear prior to walking around the site. The climb up to the top of Sigirya Rock is not difficult and there are many opportunities to stop and rest and enjoy the view.
We booked a tour from Colombo to Sigiriya/Dambulla Cave Temples with you. We regret to inform you that we were disappointed in both our driver and the tour company. While they were flexible with our schedule, the driver was not a tour guide and simply took us from place to place. It was frustrating that the price not only didn't cover entrance fees, the guide was completely unaware of the price or cash only rule.
Most upsetting of all was that he was inappropriate in his attitude and conversation. He asked a series of personal questions about my relationship status and what kind of men I like. As you can imagine, this was unnerving for two women traveling alone in remote areas.
We hope Viator vets tour companies with whom it chooses to partner more carefully in the future. We would like to be able to rely on this service for accurate information and safe experiences.
Chatura was our driver and he was fantastic! We only had a short time to see things and we crammed so much more than expected into our day! He made our trip truly unforgettable! Highly recommend you ask for Chatura!
We had a lovely day with a fantastic tourist guide/driver. Sigiriya and the cave temples were amazing and our guide provided us wide knowledge about Sri Lanka overall and about the visited places. I would highly recommend this trip for any traveller. Everything was great and well organized.
This day tour was brilliant our guide Priyanka was fantastic very informative and knowledgable it's a fair old claim to the top and the castle ruins but it's more than worth it lunch was lovely the wood carving factory was amazing and the cave temples were out of this world worth every penny
