After numerous emails to and from Sammy, we finalised our 6 day 5 night tour albeit in pigeon English at times! I was a little nervous sending a deposit over and it was quite a lot of hassle via my bank (and costly - £25) but Shelly and Suri turned up, early, at our hotel as planned. They were both... More

Cannot hype this tour any more. Emailed Sammy who gave me a sample tour with hotels and I just tailored it to our wants. 6 days touring then 4 days in 5* all inclusive at the end was ideal. I would recommend going for superior rooms as standard is basic. Anyway Sammy can organise anything you want and having Shelie... More

We had a 12 day tour with Sammy Tours as part of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka in January (sorry it has taken me so long to get round to writing this!). I booked the tour via email with Sammy after finding Sammy Tours online. I was a little dubious at first as we were asked to transfer money to... More

We had an absolutely amazing tour of Sri Lanka thanks to our guide, Shelie, and our driver, Sura. Shelie knows a lot about Sri Lanka and its history, and he took very good care of us. Sura is an excellent driver and never made us feel uncomfortable with risky driving behaviour. Our 8 day tour went like this: pick up... More

I travelled to Sri Lanka for Chinese New Year this year on my own. I stayed at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo, which was excellent. I selected Sammy Tours from Tripadvisor as I wanted to see some of SriLanka whilst I was there as well as have some time relaxing. I arranged two day tours with Sammy. His emails... More

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
