Enjoyed walking around the temple sites at Anuradhapura and Sigiriya. The Grand Hotel in Nuwara Eliya was truely a grand experience and the cooking class in Hikkaduwa was both fun and delicious!
We had a few problems with our first local guide in regard to answering questions and providing adequate information however Dave, our Insider Journeys guide was most helpful. Our second local guide was great.

The whale watching trip was too long.A trip that lasted say 3 hours would have been better.Chasing whales with 19 boats was not terribly enjoyable...we were out for 7 hours and only saw a whale towards the end...and then it took an hour to get back to port because we were so far out. I would rather have had more time in Galle.
