train #1005 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Oct 30, 2019
We had a great experience. Booking was easily done and our tickets arrived st our homestay as planned. The train was a little late but our seats were together in first class with air con. We were able to walk around and look out from the door to get photos. The guard was really friendly and told us when sights were coming up to see. He pointed out fruit trees and told me about the places where the stations were. The scenery was jaw dropping even though we had rain. The train was delayed which made our journey just over 7hrs which was tiring but it was a special experience not to be missed.

We booked three first class tickets on the Kandy to Ella train and picked up tickets on arrival in Colombo. Straight forward process. At station simply made way to platform and conductor took us to our seats. Our bags (backpack and two big suitcases) were all stored in cabin. Highly recommend both the rail journey and 12Go Asia.

Great service. Tickets were delivered to our hotel as promised. There is an enormous mark up on the tickets but you pay for the convenience of getting the tickets you want, delivered to the location of your choosing as opposed to collection.

Second class reserved seats from Kandy to Haputale were excellent. The journey was comfortable, and the large windows open which is great for the view (better than air conditioned 1st class where the windows are smaller and closed). Beautiful scenery. Tea and snacks bought from vendors who wandered through the carriage occasionally were also good. Getting the tickets was easy too! Tickets were waiting for us at our hotel which was great. So glad we had reserved seats at the non-reserved carriages were standing room only. Thanks 12go.asia :)

Very nice! There was plenty of space. But you charge 30 usd for a 1200 LKR trip... that is a bit too much

The scenery was fantastic, but once again our reserved seats were facing backwards in the direction of travel and we did not have a window, even after booking months in advance.

Awesome views from the train, worth booking a 1st class ticket to ensure a seat. Great service from 12go.asia, our tickets were at our Negombo Hotel when we arrived.

There was some problem with the pick-up regarding time and place which resulted in that we where late. However the company was really nice and tried to make up for their mistake and gave us a discount. So overall I can recommend them. Really nice driver

train #1015 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Aug 25, 2019
We booked a first class trip between Kandy and Ella. However, the train was 1.5hrs late leaving. We went one stop and sat on the train for another half hour or so. Then we were told to disembark the train and put on a bus for half an hour. Then we re-boarded a train at another station, however our assigned seats were taken, so we ended up having to find seats elsewhere on the train. Total travel time ended up being over 13hrs. Overall a dissapointing experience.

We got the train tickets delivered to the hotel everything went easily. I can't believe the markup and a 35 day lead time, but it was sold out and I had no recourse but to buy his way. Better than not being able to buy at all. I was charged 10 $USD for mailing to a hotel the form on it said 250rs so about $1.50 so in addition to the ticket markup there was a 800% mark up on postage.
