Everything went fine. Got contacted via sms 5 min after booking, the ticket was delivered to my hotel in the morning. All good. I even got a window seat facing on the right side of the train (best views) - best spot! Amazing experience. Obviously it is way more expensive to you this service but I couldn’t book anything on the public railway website anymore, and here they guaranteed me the ticket for the day I wanted as they go to the train station first thing in the morning and buy it for me. Excellent service. I overhead during the travel that others couldn’t book 2. class anymore as it was sold out 2 hours before the train left Kandy, so I am super happy with this service.

This experience way too expensive. Book your tickets early (30 days before the trip) at the official Sri Lankan Railways page and it will be so much cheaper. But if you are late like we were, this is an option to still get the tickets. Although be aware: Your tickets will only be bought the day of you departure, and they buy up tickets that other people cancelled. So it is no guarantee that you get the ticket at the selected time. We booked a ticket for the 8.47 am train and asked the local provider multiple times if this would work out, to which they always said "yes, don't worry". But in the end, we were moved to the 11 am train, because they couldn't get tickets for the 8.47 am train. Furthermore we got tickets in 1st class instead of the promised 2nd or 3rd class, which has aircon, but the windows can't be opened. This worked out for us well in the end, because 2nd and 3rd class was cramped and would probably have been uncomfortable for the 8 hours we were on the train. In the end we apprechiated the aircon, even tough we were a bit bummed at first. But even in 1st class you still have the option to go to the open train doors at any time, to take some cool shots of the train. All in all, it was a very long day, as we got up expecting to go on the 8.47 am train, and the 11 am train was delayed by 1 hour and got even further delayed while we were on it, so we only arrived in Ella by 8 pm, when it was already dark outside. But it was still a nice experience.

The ride was long but spectacular. This booking company found here is NOT worth it. A second class ticket costs 1800 LKR=4.92 euro. They charge 22 euro. When asked for seat selection they lie and say seats are randomly selected. The ticket delivery to my hotel was 1 hour 20 minutes late. You can book in advance yourself.

Amazing travel agency! We had an issue with the international agency we booked our reserved seats train tickets from Kandy to Ella with and they ended up not being able to deliver our train tickets but only informed us the evening before. In all desperation we looked for other last minute solutions and found the number of this travel agency online. After having explained our situation, we were told that they probably could do something and a few hours before the train, they delivered reserved seats tickets to our hotel in Kandy. The person we were in contact with was so helpful and even working during the night, trying to make this happen for us. If you look for a good travel agency, definitely go with this one. Highly recommend!
