You’ll see plantation workers hard at work picking tea leaves, and there’s a famous tea factory you can visit to learn about the tea-making process.

I can highly recommend the Ella day tour with 4rest Lanka Tours! Dilan safely guided me through Ella Rock, Little Adam's Peak and Nine Arch Bridge. He responded promptly to my emails, is very reliable and communicative. He was well prepared for the trip and told some interesting historical facts and details on the visited placed as well. We were not rushing, but gave me time to hike at my own pace. It was really a lovely day!
We had the most amazing tour with Dilan last year! We booked 2 tours with him - one for an elephant safari at the Udawalawe national park, and then the next day for a waterfall hike. He was so knowledgable, and so accommodating to tailor the tours to what we were interested in seeing more of. He also surprised us with a 2nd secret, hidden waterfall and pulled out packed lunches his mother had made for us 🙂 It was a very special few days we spent with Dilan understanding more about the Sri Lankan culture and history, and the beauty of the country. We will never forget it, and we'd recommend Dilan and 4rest Lanka Tours to anyone going to Sri Lanka!
I spent a wonderful day hiking in Horton Plains with Dilan. He is the most kind guide and host you can get. Dilan has also a good knowledge of Sri Lankan history and nature. Highly recommended.

I booked the x6 waterfalls and had Dilan txt me the night before to confirm everything. He even added in a trip to lipton tea and a buddha statue which was not on the itenerary to which I couldnt say no to. He picked me up on his motorbike as it was faster and easier to travel to all the spots and I agreed as Ive done it before around Asia ans i enjoy the fresh breeze. Went to the newly built buddha statue on Ellas hill top with awsome biews of the city then went to Lipton tea. It was amazing views EVERYWHERE we rode. Then came all the waterfalls which I captured many awsome pics. Dilun was awsome and kind and reliable. Highly reccomend to fellow travellers, he wont dissapoint. 🤙🙌
We thoroughly enjoyed an almost day-long adventure tour with our very knowledgeable guide Dilan (Ella Rock, Adam’s Peak, and 9 Arch Bridge). He picked us up from our homestay for an early start to Ella Rock. We walked along the tracks for a bit, before starting an invigorating ascent towards the Rock. Dilan knew the trails very well and expertly (and safely) guided us to the top while giving us insight into some of the environmental issues as well while adding some personal stories to the mix. We had to catch a late breakfast at our homestay after our hike, and Dilan was accommodating and even found us a shortcut to our homestay so we could make it on time. After breakfast, we headed to the 9 Arch bridge, where we were able to watch the train from a great vantage point. Dilan gave us some interesting history of the bridge and the man behind the arch design. After a quick break, we continued on to Adam’s peak for another hike (a little less strenuous than Ella rock). At the end, we were quite pleasantly tired from the days activities, and we stopped for a late lunch before the end our the tour. Dilan also gave us some tips on other interesting places to visit and what to look for. Thanks Dilan!

    Can’t go wrong with 4rest and Dilan!

    I had Dilan plan a tour of Lipton Seat tea plantation for a day. The entire experience was great. Dilan is incredibly friendly it’s clear he genuinely enjoys being a guide. He’s dependable and I appreciate that he was communicative throughout the entire booking process compared to other companies who took days to respond.
