Our experience with Sammy Tours was unforgettable. We took a two-day trip and a one-day trip. Our guides and drivers were - Shelie & Suari and Prasad & Aijdh. They were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole experience felt like it was tailored to us. We are looking to visit Sri Lanka again but... More

Sammy Tours made our trip to Sri Lanka in late November 2014 memorable. No matter what we requested, Sammy was able to provide it and came up with some great suggested changes. Shellie, our guide, was wonderful. He was knowledgable, friendly and lots of fun to be around. Upon arrival in Colombo at 3.30 am, Shellie was there and helped... More

We have had a fabulous time in Sri Lanka and are sad to be leaving this beautiful country tomorrow. Sammy Tours made our vacation worry free. We have spent 16 days in Sri Lanka and were able to see much of the country thanks to our wonderful guide and driver. We specified what we wanted upfront (plenty of relaxed beach... More

Sammy is growing in his business but has problems with English, which can lead to serious misunderstandings on what has been booked, and despite VERY specific agreements on hotels. Make sure you have your hotel schedule in writing and that you check yourself. If in any doubt clarify up front. We had a 10 day tour in a very good... More

"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!
