Without driving yourself—something not recommended to visitors to Sri Lanka—visiting Dambulla, Sigiriya, and Minneriya National Park in a day from Kandy is impossible. This private tour makes it easy: with a personal driver-guide to explain the sights and scenery, and comfortable private minivan transport. Explore Dambulla’s icon-filled caves, view Sigiriya rocktop ruins, and enjoy a 4x4 safari to see Minneriya’s elephants or a local village tour.

* A traveler said: "Had a great day trip with Dinesh to Sigirya and Dambulla! We also stopped at a spice garden where we learnt about lots of different plants and had a quick massage, as well as a beautiful Hindu temple. Was a well-planned out day trip. You can get a tuk tuk from Kandy for cheaper, but it’s a long way to Sigirya so travelling in a car with A/C is a lot more comfortable!! We were the only ones on the tour, but Dinesh’s car was an 8 seater so could also work for a group. Dinesh was just a driver rather than tour guide, but helped us to sort a guide at Sigirya, although there are quite a few information panels so you probably don’t need one. Dinesh took us to a lunch place which was a buffet. We would have preferred somewhere where the food was prepared fresh, just because of food-poisoning risk, but the food was nice. Overall a great day and would definitely recommend!"

* A traveler said: "This tour was fantastic!! Our driver had a lot of knowledge of the area. The waterfall was only a short walk and its surrounds were stunning. The tea plantation was great. The tour was very insightful, the tea is very good, we bought a lot. The botanical gardens were nice, even though it has been dry in Sri Lanka they were still very nice. Lake Gregory was picturesque and we had a ride on the paddle boats on the lake. We had lunch at the Calamander and it was awesome. All in all a great tour and it was really good to get away from the heat in Kandy city, to the cool highlands."
