Hello everyone, We spent 3 weeks in SL in April along with a driver-guide. The choice of the guide was essential for us knowing that we spent 3 weeks with him and we were fortunate to come across a person who is fully aware of his country, its history, its fauna and flora. We started our stay by the cultural... More

We pre-booked a Colombo City Tour through Sri Lanka Tours before Cruising to Sri Lanka. We were most surprised to find on arrival that this day was a Hindu/Tamil New Years Day public holiday. Therefore, almost every place was closed up. Our driver who tried to be helpful could only show us a few places such as Independence Square, the... More

Our ship docked at Colombo where we had pre- booked a half day tour. It soon was apparent that Sri Lanka's largest city was quite beautiful, dotted with stately colonial buildings and wonderfully frenetic. We explored several museums and temples. The city's passion for the contemporary is evident in the many high-rises towering above the old Fort, a 19th Century... More

We were introduced by our travel agent to Dudley and we would highly recommend him for his excellent service, proactive involvement, planning and guidance in taking us around Colombo, Galle and Hikkaduwa. He came to meet us with a very clean, big car for our family of 4 adults. The car was tip top everyday and he took us to... More

My spouse and myself recently came back from 2 weeks in amazing Sri Lanka. The country is gorgeous but what makes it unforgettable is the people you will meet. Our driver Nalinda (nalindakalpa@gmail.com) took a lot of time to explain us his culture, his habits, his way of living, etc. Being a driver more than 6 years enables him to... More
