I originally planned our 5 day trip alone- no help, just me, Google and Trip Advisor. I knew exactly where I wanted to go, what we should see and which excursions we wanted to experience. Days before our departure for the first half of our trip to the Maldives, I gave Trip Advisor one last look...I found Sammy Tours. Reading... More

I am only 13 but sammy was great, he was very funny. He made me and my 9 year old brother laugh and smile. He packed a lot into our tour and was brilliant. Sammy had everything sorted, his English was great! Sammy is a legend!

A huge thumbs up to Sammy Tours, what can I say that has not already been said. My daughter was not happy when we announced that we would be taking a tour of Sri Lanka for our holiday, despite all my best efforts to educate her before our departure! Since we have returned to Dubai she has not stopped talking... More

Me and my wife went to Sri Lanka as part of our honeymoon and decided to book everything by ourselves, no travel agents involved. Relying on the opinions of some friends of ours, most of which from different European countries whom had traveled to Sri Lanka and knew Sammy Tours, we decided to do the same and contacted Sammy. Everything... More

Sammy arranged everything for us including the airport pickup, hotels and travel to and from the places we were visiting during each day. Our guide Shelly and driver Sura... More

our experience started in the U.k.We carefully researched different tours and different companies, and we were impressed with his prompt replies and itineraries. We paid a small deposit in Sterling straight to his bank account and just a small charge from our bank and Sammy confirmed all in his e mails. On arrival in Sri Lanka, we contacted him to... More

Booked well in advance and paid a deposit up front which was costly through the bank. Sammy sorted the itinerary and the hotels but it was obvious from the start that we should have taken more control as it appeared that the family nature and mixed interests of the group (2 adults and 2 early teenage boys) didnt appear to...

He responded promptly to our initial enquiry and we quickly established an itinerary based on our needs and Sammy's suggestions. Sammy arranged our airport transfers and all hotels during our stay on a half board basis, all attraction entrance fees were also included even our... More

We recently completed a trip to Sri Lanka, our first trip there. We were very impressed with the historical sights we saw, the differences in sights and vegetation as we transversed the Country and just how nice all the people were. Sammy Tours arranged all our accomodations and they were superb. We were provided an excellent driver who never got... More
