We contacted Sammy after reading reviews on tripadviser and were not disappointed with our experience. 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

There are many destinations in the world that provide palm trees, sandy beaches, strange animals, good service and exiting food, but the holiday we have just completed with Sammi’s Tour tops the lot. We found the link to Sammi’s tour using Trip Advisor, and the concomitant reviews unreservedly sang his praises. We have just completed a tour of the main... More

After reading the several positive reviews here we decided to book our trip in Sri Lanka with Sammy Tours. We agreed on itinerary and hotels and paid a deposit (4 months before starting our trip). Just 1 month before the start Sammy (or Saman his real name) contacted us to say that several hotels were not available. After 2 weeks... More

We approached our first visit to Sri Lanka with some trepidation. We normally avoid touring type holidays with a guide/driver. After researching on Trip Advisor we realised this was the only way we would get to see many things in a short time. So we booked 8 days with Sammy and the whole booking process was handled professionally. On the... More

As many before us we found Sammy's tours by the impressive reviews on Tripadvisor. We booked a 6 night tour, working with Sammy to get just what we wanted. We went to the Elephant Orphanage, Sigiriya(Lion Rock), Pollunaruwa, Kaudulla National Park, Dambulla Rock Cave Temples, Matale Spice Gardens, Kandy, Botanical Gardens, Tooth Temple, Cultural Show, Ramboda Falls, Tea Plantation, Yala...

Myself and two female friends in our early twenties decided to head to Sri Lanka to see what this wonderful country had to offer, and we were not disappointed. At first we were nervous about travelling to a country that is so vastly different from our home. Sammy since the moment he met us at the airport made us feel... More

A lot could be written about the amazing tour we have just experienced with Sammy, but I will keep it brief in saying that you should consider no other tour provider if you are heading to Sri Lanka. Every little detail was thought of and prepared for our tour, though we were still allowed free reign to change our itinerary... More
