In such a crowded city it doesn't look easy to find natural, peacefull and etreteined places at the same time, but it is clear that they invested a lot of time to find the best tours in the area, probably just known by them.

We had a great day with Vishwa in the Knuckles Range. He is a good and experienced mountainbiker and knows the area so adjusts the tour to your abilities! Next to this he explains things on the way! Also teh bikes are well maintained scott bikes!

We had a fantastic day with Vishwa on a cross country mountain bike tour in the mountains around Kandy. The scenery was spectacular: tea plantations, smaller villages, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Bikes provided were very high quality hard tail Scott bikes in excellent working condition - basically brand new. Snacks and water were provided. We’d highly recommended riding with Vishwa - if we had the time we’d definitely do another day!!

We had a great day with Vishwa. The ride he took us on was excellent. Some good climbs and plenty of downhill sections. The bikes were high quality and we got to see things we’d never find on our own.

I had a fantastic ride with Vishwa and it will definitely be one of the top highlights of my trip. From the beginning his communication was great and prompt, I was staying slightly outside of Kandy but because it was just me he organised to meet me out there and we started the ride from my accommodation which was great, but also meant we rode a lot of hills! We rode around the Hantana Ranges, through tea fields with lots of climbing, rocky descents and some technical bits it was well tailored to my experience. Vishwa was very knowledgeable, pointing out and explaining many things. We stopped at a local stall for traditional snacks and tea, and again later for a refreshing king coconut. If you are a keen cyclist like me I can't recommend this enough, the bike was good and the trails and views even better. Vishwa is very passionate about mountain biking and trying to help grow the sport in his country, and I wish him all the best in doing so. Thanks again mate!
