Myself and two mates organised a van and driver from Blue Haven in Kandy and they were excellent. They were able to help us out at short notice and despite our plans changing, they tailor made it to our needs based on where we wanted to go. Our driver was Sumedha and I can't say enough good things about him.... More

We traveled with Blue Haven Tours and were very satisfied. Our guide was Jagath and he was excellent. He was punctual, very flexible, he took us to places where we could taste different fruits from Srilanka (he really tried to find best fruits, not just any fruit....). He also arranged massage which was the best one in Srilanka (Ayurvedic center... More

I have travelled a great deal with work/pleasure and spent years as a cruise director on ships, including organising tours and have never found better than Blue Haven. It represents great value for money, and the service, organisation, travel and accommodation was excellent. Driver/Tour guide, Dimuthu was obliging, friendly, knew everything and everywhere. He was simply outstanding. Blue Haven represents... More

This was a lovely guest house, with a brilliant pool and spectacular views. It was not as central as might be desired, and the walk into town was a bit complicated, but there was always someone there to give you a lift for the same price as a tuktuk. The rooms were clean, there was good hot water, the wifi... More

Two friends and I travelled across Sri Lanka from Australia using a Blue Haven Tour van and guide named Sumedha. I can't say enough good things about the experience. We hadn't planned our trip prior to arrival and Blue Haven were extremely flexible with our fluctuating plans. We initially only were planning on having them for a week but built... More

The location isn't practical because it's quite far from the town but the view is beautiful and a tuktuk only costs 250rps Our room was VERY damp, the smell was bad. No airco The staff was friendly but absent... The pool was good The food was ok.

We had very good experience with a driver from Blue Haven tours. Our driver, Sanjaya, was very friendly, speaks English well and was a safe driver. He picked us up on the Northeast coast, and drove us to Kandy, Yala, Udawalawe and Colombo airport in 7 days. We recommend Sanjaya. Also the minivan was in good condition.

We didn't stay at Blue Haven guest house, we were collected by Jagrath from the airport and driven to Anuradhapura. Our driver found us an excellent guide and they worked together to give us the best experience of the site you could wish for. We would not have had the experiences that we had during our tour including climbing Minintale... More
