Our 6 day personalised tour of Sri Lanka with our amazing guide, Jaya and driver, Adjih, was brilliant in every respect. A great pair, who clearly get on well and work brilliantly together, provided us with insights into the history, the culture, Buddhism and other religions, the political situation and the scenic beauty of this great country. This was delivered... More

My girlfriend and I used Sammy Tours for a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka. Initially we were hesitant about basing our trip around a tour company, but the many positive reviews persuaded us to give it a shot. Sammy provided an excellent itinerary, and as we made small changes here and there he made recommendations and showed the reflection... More

My friend and I came to Sri Lanka for a friend's wedding in January 2015, and decided to do a 7 day tour around the wedding. After scouring the internet for recommendations, and obtaining a few quotes, I decided Sammy's tours was the way to go. I was quite hesitant at first, as whilst Sammy was excellent at replying to...

That was a disaster. I found Sammy in the internet and contacted him asking if he could guide in Sri Lanka and organize a trip. The choice was made based on many feedbacks to his guidance. Sammy replied that yes, he could organize everything advising a certain program for 5 days trip. When we agreed on the plan he asked... More

We spent 4 weeks in India and decided in the middle of our holiday that maybe we could go to Sri Lanka for the last week. I went on tripadvisor to look for some guides and found Sammy tours with lot of good reviews. Sammy replied to my email straight away with suggested itinerary. I have made few changes in... More

My family and I decided to celebrate the New Year (2015) with a vacation to Sri Lanka. We weren’t sure what the best approach to both seeing everything and getting some relaxation in. After scouring TripAdvisor for several days I found Sammy Tours. I was initially skeptical of the reviews; nobody could be as good as the reviews Sammy received.... More

I chose Sammy Tours because of the positive reviews on trip advisor. Sammy was always very quick to respond to our emails which was great. We sent emails back and forth until I was happy with the itinerary. The itinerary was a little rough around the edges but eventually did contain enough information about our trip. I had assumed that... More

Based on the previous Tripadvisor reviews we have booked our private tour with Sammy. Although the communication in English using e-mail is not super, all went smooth and easy! Sammy suggested a schedule for us, where we made some changes later on which was followed up properly. The trip itself was relaxed and our driver & guide did there level... More

We found Sammy Tours through tripadvisor. Sammy gave us quick and clear answers to all our inquiries and professional advices on our itinerary. During our 10 days trip, we had loads of surprises. Besides the temples, tea plantation, ancient UNESCO sites and beach, we visited 2 different safaris, a boat trip and a wonderful elephant ride which were completely different... More
