Train #Viceroy II #1008 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go (Viceroy II by 12Go), Mar 4, 2020
The train ride in itself is comfortable. The views are magnificient. However the tickets are very expensive. Reduce the ticket price or atleast provide lunch.

It was a nice trip and scenery was beautiful
taxi Van 8pax, Stef Lanka Tours (Stef Lanka Tours), Jan 4, 2020
We were 2 minibuses rather than one (for a party of 7 with lots of baggage), as the booked one had suffered a puncture. 12Go were quick to call about this to apologise though. The replacement buses were a bit old with AC not working, but the drivers were very friendly and got us to our destination efficiently. The booking experience was well handled by 12Go as they had been unable to book us train tickets for this journey but were able to sort us out minibus via their website instead. You do pay more by going through 12Go but this extra cost was justified in this instance by the convenience of the whole process

The food could be better
Train #Viceroy II #1008 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go (Viceroy II by 12Go), Jan 20, 2019
On the voucher the time of departure was 10.57 in Ella so we where at the station at 10.30 but the actual departure was 12.30 (waiting 2 hours). Seem to be a wrong time on the voucher. And the snacks to buy in the bar in the train was very limited.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.
