    Tailor Made Tour

    Communicated with few travel companies in Sri Lanka with regard to my tour. “Miracle Sri Lanka’s” response were prompt, quick updates as per my requirement, since I was traveling single, concerned on my cost. Overall itinerary was perfect. Chauffeur Thaha met me at the airport by 0400 am on 21st October 2018, along with a basic briefing headed to Pinnawela. Experienced those Elephants, Rock Temple in Dambulla, next day Polonnaruwa ruin city and a Safari at Minneriya Park, which has number of Elephants too. Visited Kandy, took the famous train ride to the hills and got back to airport on the 25th October 2018.

    I am a traveler,
