Excellent!

We went with PL Tours to Anuradhapura because we have only a short time in Sri Lanka.

William from PL Tours organized the tour without and problems.

Very quick with answering the questions we have and we can pay for the tour when the tour starts.

Our driver / guide Rohan was punctual on time and we proceed to Chilaw where we visit the beautiful Hindu temple.

After a snack in Chilaw we proceed to Anuradhapura.

Pl Tours arranged a local guide who know everything about the ancient city of Anuradhapura.
The tour was perfect organized and we are very happy.
We reccomend PL Tours and Travels when you want to see the beauty of Sri Lanka without any problems.

Once again Thank you Rohan and William for arranging this tour in a short time.

Kind regards,

Veronica & Eleonora
