  1. :

    Very nice trip with Sigiriya, Dambulla and Safari of Mineriya. We were picked up early from the hotel but it was a nice experience. Our guide, Kumara was very nice and friendly.

  2. :

    Keep in mind the trip does not include a guide at Sigiriya. I wanted to hire a guide at Sigiriya (young guys explain about Sigiriya, who are appointed as the site guides) but they are too expensive (3000 Rs), then we did it without a guide.

  3. :

    Many interesting places on a one day trip. Sigiriya and Dambulla were really nice tourist places and Safari was superb. Our Guide Kusum was very good and helpful.

  4. :

    3 interesting activities on one trip visiting Sigiriya, visiting Dambulla and safari.

  5. :

    We had only one day for a trip in Sri Lanka because our ship planned to leave Colombo on the next day. We are glad we opted for this one day trip. We could see a lot and very interesting trip.

  6. :

    We wanted to have a break from the beach holiday and we took the trip. Excellent trip and our guide were very good.

  7. :

    Long drive from Colombo but the reward is great with trekking in Sigiriya, Dambulla and safari of Minneriya.

  8. :

    We wanted to visit Sigiriya very badly because Sigiriya is one of teh most popular sites. Fortunately, seerendipity organized out pick-up from the beach hotel in Bentonta and they dropped us in Bentota did not charge anything.

  9. :

    This is our 2nd trip with seerendipity, earlier we visited Galle southern coast with their 2 days trip which was excellent. This time we booked the Sigiriya trip which was also a very nice trip. Good service, good vehicle and excellent guide.

  10. :

    Most other operators offer Sigiriya Dambulla trip only but this serendipity gave us the option to explore Sigiriya and Dambulla while having and do the safari at Minneriya national park. Therefore we did not have to do a separate wildlife safari which could have cost us a few another $100. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

  11. :

    Thanks to this one day trip we could do a safari while visiting Sigiriya and Dambulla on one trip. Most tour operators offer safari and Sigiriya tour separately making you do 2 trips. Therefore you have to pay for 2 trips while dedicating 2 days of your trips. But seerendipity has planned this one day trip saving you time and money. highly recommendable trip.

  12. :

    Very interesting program not only with very popular tourist places like Sigiriya but also with a safari at Minneriya safari.

  13. :

    Great opportunity to see a lot of interesting places, even though it is a day trip it includes many interesting activities.
