train #1005 2nd Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Mar 24, 2020
Reserved 2nd class seats which were easy to find. Comfortable seats with fan in the carriage keeping it cool. Big window to see the view. Excellent train snacks!

train #1005 2nd Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Mar 20, 2020
Unfortunately, we were forced by COVID-19 restrictions to cancel our train journey. This review is based on the service that we received in purchasing the tickets only. I have scored the vehicle comfort as 4, even though we didn’t take the journey. The Sri Lankan Rail ticketing system makes purchasing advance tickets a bit of a lottery. We were apprehensive as our holiday centred on the train ride. We should not have worried, as the service and information provided by 12Go Asia was great. They answered our questions promptly and provided lots of useful advice. We will come to Sri Lanka next year and will certainly use 12Go Asia.

I was the only passanger, so I was taken by car instead of bus. Comfortable car and very nice and safe driver. Took us there much faster then by bus!

train #Viceroy II #1007 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go, Jan 7, 2020
We took this train after reading it was one of the most beautiful ones and that was true! The scenery is beautiful!!! The carriage is so pretty inside, outside could use paint as it is not at all as in the photos. On the negative side the train picked us up almost one hour late, and we lost 2 more hours on the way so all in all it took almost double the time (around 6hrs). Just beware not to have flights or anything booked immediately after, just in case.
