Clark Dushan

Sacred Day Trip to Anuradhapura with a Local

Overall very, very good. Dushan arrived spot on time in a clean, up to date, air conditioned vehicle. We reviewed the itinerary and set off. Along the way there were stories and explanations to enhance our time. Dushan has a lot of enthusiasm for his country and monuments and it shows. It was the New Year time when we went but Dushan could adjust timings and routes to take best advantage of traffic flow. He was sensitive to our desires and we saw the highlights but at 37° Dushan kept us cool by avoiding the less important sights.
We did a little shopping and he pointed out certain local things and explained how things were made.
Despite the long drive from Kandy the day was worthwhile and all the more so because of Dushan's professionalism and flexibility.
Anuradhapura and Mihintale are places not to be missed and Dushan is a top guide to get you there and back.

Amazing Waterfalls Day Trip by Tuk Tuk including Lunch

Chaminda is a really lovely guy, nothing was too much trouble, and he was keen to make sure we had a good time. The lunch cooked by his wife was Delicious and we ate it at a waterfall in the mountains with nobody there but us. Awesome!

This is a full day tour and you will be shaken about in a tuk tuk for many hours, but we didn't mind it, in fact the breeze was better than air conditioning in a taxi and we certainly got to see things close up. Chaminda took us to places tourists don't normally go, in fact we only saw one other tourist all day and she was only there because her driver was lost! We went on a Sunday which might be a good idea as the traffic was a lot less than it would be during the week, and everyone was in their Sunday best looking very glamorous.

We got to see four waterfalls but the star was really the countryside and the local people, mostly people who work at the tea plantations in the mountains. It was interesting to see how they live. We also went to see people working the rice paddies and that was fascinating too. It was a hot day but we got to swim in a waterfall pool which was lovely.

Safety: I think it is only fair to mention that getting to the waterfalls involved some pretty dangerous clambering over rocks and climbing steep hills etc. We are 58, and overweight, but we work out so are fitter than some people our age, and we struggled a bit at times. My wife twisted her ankle slipping on a rock and there are places where you could get badly hurt if you fell. It did add some adventure to the day, but if you are unsteady on your feet you might not see as many waterfalls as you would like. To be honest, in the dry season they are not so spectacular anyway, but it's worth taking the tour for the countryside.
