It was very disappointing that the train I had initially booked was replaced with a standard first class carriage. We paid well above the ticket price for that carriage. Although we were refunded $13 this still made the ticket $27 when you can get a 1st class ticket for $6 at the train station.

Unfortunately the viceroy carriage had needed to be sent for repairs but the replacement was extremely good and the trip was one of our highlights. The staff were very helpful and pointed out places of interest. Refunds were processed effectively. I would book again.

Food options were limited. Also the unexpected delay didn't allow us to enjoy the view during the evening-night time.

Our driver was super helpful and the van was clean and comfortable. The driver recommended a couple of spots for overview photos and even a visit to a tea plantation which we really enjoyed. It was a long drive along winding roads and he was very careful and a good, safe driver.

We took the VIP carriage as they were the last tickets available to pre-book. The guy who worked in the carriage was very accommodating and the train itself was definitely better quality than the regular trains and very comfortable. Lunch is not included in the price so bring snacks if you don’t want to pay a premium for what is available on board. We were quite happy with beer, coffee and potato chips though. We arrived 1 hour later but that’s to be expected.

Vijitha is an amazing driver and a lovely guy. He was very accommodating and patient, and made the best of a very testing journey with pouring rain and landslides. I would recommend him to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka.

Good train trip! Comfortable chairs, toilet and possibility to order something to drink. Not much snacks to chose from, i would recommend to pre-order lunch. Great way to travel with our 2,5 year old!

We were expecting a little more luxury from the Viceroy II carriage and more than one cup of tea for the entirety of the journey. We had to pay for our 2nd cup of tea, which given the cost of the ticket we expected to be complimentary. However, it was a scenic journey and we're glad we had the experience.

train #1005 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Dec 15, 2019
Very beautiful train ride! But after speaking to some locals we decided to get in at halfway instead of Kandy to Elle. So we reduced the trip from 6 to 3 hrs which was perfect for us. Booking process was very easy. We got the tickets posted to our hotel at a fee but they texted to make sure we got the tickets which was good. You pay a bit more than locals but very happy to do that for the convenience of it!

Cabin looks very tired and dusty..... we had to change train as there was a landslide.... Viceroy 11 passengers including my family had no seats in 1st Class as all other passengers from other carriage had occupied in the new train ..... was total chaos and badly organised by JF Tours who runs the Viceroy 11.

Train broke down and there was no communication whatsoever to the passengers. We just sat there for 45 minutes until I got fed up and started asking questions. Train was rickety and jumpy, thought it was going to jump off the tracks it was so all over the place! Nice views if you get a chance to hang out the door though
