Other Practical InformationTrain journey during the tour: The journey by train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella takes approximately 3 - 4 hours. Train tickets (2nd or 3rd class) will be arranged for you if seats are available. This is because it is not possible to reserve seats in advance You should also take into account that the train journey is carried out on a local train and is less comfortable than you might be used to. In addition to that, our agency in Sri Lanka may adjust the day of the train journey and / or the route to avoid delays and overcrowded carriages Sinhala & Tamil New Year The celebration of the Sinhala & Tamil New Year takes place every year on the 13th and 14th of April. You might experience larger crowds in places of your interest. Also, during your visit to the tea factory, it is possible that no product presentation takes place and no tea picker is present This tour does not have a minimum number of participants.

Your group can consist of a maximum of 24 participants From day 1 to day 10 of the tour, you will be accompanied by a local, English-speaking tour guide. Tipping is not compulsory, but it is customary in the tourism industry.
