What people are saying about Sabaragamuwa Province

Good, but rafting too short

Organization was okay so far, but you drive 3 hours to raft and the time in which you do rafting is not more than 1h, which is too little and a shame. Accordingly, the price is a bit too high and as I said, more rafting would have been nice. The tour is quite lame for adrenaline junkies, but for families and beginners with a little fear I think just right :)
