He organised a custom made perfect itinerary for us which included a Kandy city tour, temple visits, relaxation in the Botanical gardens, visits to the viewpoint, tea factory, spice gardens,...

George kindly took us to the train station for the next leg of our journey which was pre booked so we couldn't take advantage of his many tour suggestions though his other business Michelle...

We enjoyed everything, and everybody was very kind. The food and the service was excellent. We had a nice room, with a beautiful view. We really enjoyed the little balcony front of our room, where we spent our evenings.

I stayed at Kandy Guesthouse as my trip was arranged by Michelle Tours. The location is outside the city of Kandy. It's a perfect location if you want somewhere away from noise, hustle and bustle! The rooms are next a flowing river. I arrived at night and was able to enjoy tea on my balcony listening to the calm relaxing...

The location is great because of the garde in full nature, but it s a bit far from Kandy centre. The rooms are clean and good. The balcony is really top.
