I had paid for the tickets to be delivered to my Hotel in Colombo. But when I arrived I discovered there were no tickets. I had to call the office and after several calls from my international mobile phones, they confirmed they had my 2 sets of tickets in the office. They managed to deliver the tickets in time for our train just a couple of hours in advance. This was an anxious period I was was really disappointed with the local supplier performance. I just dont understand why they had not delivered the tickets.
