Ella to Nanu Oya Destination Reviews

We bought multiple train tickets and had it all delivered to the hotel at once. However, we paid the USD10 delivery for each individual ticket.
Train #1042 First Class, Sri Lanka Railways, Apr 17, 2022
Booking of train tickets was smooth and the train ride was beautiful! We booked our tickets 3 weeks before our trip and 12go delivered the tickets to our airbnb by the time we arrived. Easy!

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.

We really enjoyed the trip on Viceroy II. Great scenery, comfortable travel, air con and well worth the cost.

It was a nice trip and scenery was beautiful
Train #Viceroy II #1008 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go (Viceroy II by 12Go), Jan 23, 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
taxi Van 8pax, Stef Lanka Tours (Stef Lanka Tours), Jan 4, 2020
Very good communication and tickets were at hotel as requested
