Passenger reviews out of total 2 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

train #1016 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways
★★★★☆
Service from this company was fantastic. I didn’t read that we had to go to the office to get the tickets, or have them sent to our hotel. I called them 1.5 days before we had to catch the train and they managed to get a same day courier to drop the ticket to us on time. Worth paying extra (almost double) to have the peace of mind of having seats, because the train ride is very very popular. The air con cabin (1st class) was FREEZING though. Uncomfortably so. The views were incredible and the 6 hour ride went quite quickly. Thanks 12go for making sure we got on our train!!

★★☆☆☆
As I had voucher in hand trying to find office in Colombo which was no easy task. However I eventually did but it was closed due to a public holiday. The next day went to office it was closed. Finally got hold of the person who was meant to be managing the office. Anyway finally got my ticket spent at least 30 dollars doing this then missed my train to my next destination so that cost another 75 dollars. So very dissatisfied with the whole deal. It would been heaps cheaper to get to the train station very early and pay stuff all for the dam ticket. So fellow travellers Beware.

★★★★☆
Very comfortable for a long journey. Friendly staff and a nice lunch although not quite as advertised and expensive for what it was. The train itself is excellent value.

Amazing trip! Absolutely stunning scenery. Booking our tickets head and having them delivered to our hotel in Columbo was the way to go.

Fantastic! The tickets were delivered to our hotel as arranged, and we had seats on the left-hand side of the train in the 1st class carriage (the best side for views when travelling from Ella to Kandy). We met other tourists who hadn't pre-booked and missed out on 1st class tickets and got stuck in a crowded 'Unreserved 2nd class' carriage. Will definitely use 12go again.

★★☆☆☆
Despite booking and being told by you that we had 1st class tickets we were given 2nd class reserved by the Stef Lanka office in Colombo. I think there is some fiddling accruing here. Plus the office is very very out of the way across town and not convenient to go to. The actual train journey was fine and very pretty.

Our tickets were changed from 1st class to Viceroy II which was a fabulous train journey in wonderful and comfortable vintage coach. But it stopped short of Kandy and left an hour later than on ticket. More info in advance from 123go would be useful but Viceroy train excellent

The staff were AMAZING!!! Why I didn’t give a 5 was the, at times, intense swaying of the car back and forth! Perhaps tracks need repair??
