Jaffna to Anuradhapura Destination Reviews

Excellent service .. like clockwork. I ordered 3 sets of tickets and had them delivered to my hotel. I was refused the delivery charge for two sets of tickets as they were out in the same envelope.. very impressive. Don't bank on definite train times as these can vary from that specified.
