The driver and vehicle was good. Expedia UK is a disappointment in terms of communication. No UK standards were followed or met in any way with the lunch that was arranged at the hotel named Hotel Captain's Marina, Balapitiya was a disgrace. We had paid for a buffet included package and there was no buffet. The a la carte was aweful, undercooked good which we could not eat and they charged us for the desserts which is illegal in terms of of the amount of pounds we paid while buying the package. It is simply illegal to charge money. I am expecting partial refund immediately.

I was met by my guide & driver Shaveendra who welcomed me. Shaveendra explained the tour & was always there to explain anything I needed to know. The Buddhist Temple was amazing. Cinnamon Island & Spice Garden were very interesting & learnt alot. The Madu River Safari was so much fun !!! I boat guide was friendly & explained anything I wanted to know. I'm impressed how this tour was all put together. This tour was just perfect ! I would recommend this tour to anyone & asking for Shaveendra ! Very good tour :-)
