I was travelling with my mother and we asked Magical Tours for transport from Nuwara Eliya to Kandy, with sights along the way, at a days notice. Crishna responded with a good price very quickly and the next day arrived ten minutes before we asked to be picked up - perfect. On his advice we visited a plantation for tea tasting, a spice garden and a waterfall on our way to Kandy. Crishna drive safely and was friendly and knowledgeable. I couldn't recommend Magical Tours more highly.

2 days sightseeing in Nuwara Eliya and transport to bus station. I found Gayan through earlier TripAdvisor reviews and he did not disappoint. He responded quickly on WhatsApp and was punctual, something of a rarity in Sri Lanka, and good humoured as well as knowledgeable about the area, where to go and what we could do with time we had there. One thing that really struck me was that while this is his income he wasn't over focussed on the money but on us experiencing the wonderful city and area that Nuwara Eliya is. We went to Damro tea factory - great and Ramboda Falls - again loved it and a strawberry farm. Couldn't ask for better and have already recommended Gayan to others.
We met Krisha and his father at the Nuwara Eliya train station. We used their taxi for a ride into town and they helped us find a nice hotel for the night. We decided to use their services for the next day as well and they were flexible and worked in with what we wanted to do. We decided to do a tea facory tour and go to a waterfall. We loved both of them and Krishna was very friendly and talkative and happy to stop whenever we wanted. We used them today to get back to the train station too. We would definitely recommend their services to anyone travelling through nuwara eliya. Anna
