How it works:
- In Ruwanwelisaya, there are 7 free sites and 3 paid sites.
- There are rogue tour operators which charge you for tickets to the paid sites but only bring you around the free sites.
Places to beware:
- Anuradhapura: Ruwanwelisaya
What to do:
- Offline operators: ask – is the operator licensed? Is there a website, office and working phone number? Are there real online reviews? What does the price cover – is it too cheap?
- Online platforms: GetYourGuide (leading day tour platform globally) has one such tour.
