    Its a good trip, but in hind sight we think it could be done much cheaper in destination. There were no inclusions for the trip, so all up we ended up spending 200 plus for the day! The sights we went to were amazing and our driver was incredible! It was a long day, but as we had limited time in Sri Lanka it was good for us to pack it all in as see a lot in this day.
    We would also like to recommend being careful when offered the village lunch tour. It was great to see the village and highly recommend this as bit more of a local experience, however as part of the tour they have a Bullock ride and the bulls looked very mistreated! Would recommend to look around and see if there is a more responsible village tour out there.
