"Did so many things in 8 Days" "Great Adventure" I traveled to Sri Lanka for the first time with my 2 boys ages 16 & 14 for an adventure vacation. I had e-mailed Sammy back and forth many times as I kept changing hotels and told him the different types of adventures we would like to do. Sammy made all... More

We arranged a 2 day tour with Sammy over the internet after reading good reviews on trip advisor, and we weren't disappointed. We paid£100 deposit into his bank account, any email enquiries were promptly replied. Sammy met us as arranged at out hotel, an early 6 30 start with an air conditioned people carrier. Our tour consisted of a visit... More

This review is a little bit late as we toured with Sammy in August but I really wanted to say how great it was (though I have just seen my son did a positive review straight away!). I contacted Sammy as a result of other trip advisor reviews and he responded straight away with a suggested itinerary (3 days 2... More

My partner and I were looking for a two week trip in Sri Lanka comprised of sites, culture and a bit of relaxation at the beach. I had initially planned to organize the hotels and transport myself, but after a bit of research soon realised I would need some help. Like others before me, I found Sammy Tours online on... More

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

We did a 10 day tour of Sri Lanka which started in the mid/north west at Wilpattu and then moved through Anuradhapura, Minneriya, Dambulla, Nuwara Eliya, Tisa and then to Sinharaja. 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
