“Fantastic trip! We can't wait to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

From the get-go Jevon was very helpful and quick to respond with our requests while he planned the trip: nothing was too much trouble and his personalised service helped us decide to go with Traverse Lanka Tours over other more commercialised and impersonable companies. Both Jevon and Mr Ravi met us at the airport in our trip car: a comfortable, spotless and new car which remained ours throughout our trip (we met some tourists who had a nice car at the airport which was later swapped for a beaten up old banger!) Jevon had booked us into fantastic accommodation! We stayed in 9 hotels over 10 days and each one was wonderful and unique-an absolute joy to stay in! They also booked train tickets in advance and advised us on everything we could do or see without being pushy: a truly tailor-made trip. It was a pleasure being driven by Mr Ravi, he was a fountain of knowledge while we were asking all our questions and we felt very safe in his hands. My husband and I recommend Traverse Lanka Tours highly as they have ensured that my husband and I experienced a trip which we will always look back on with dear and sweet memories! Definately the company to go with if you want to avoid being made to feel like a number with the bigger companies.
Thanks guys!

“Splendid tour with Traverse Lanka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Traverse Lanka came recommended to me from a friend and we had an amazing tour of 10 days with Mr. Nandana who was our driver for the tour in Sri Lanka. I traveled there with four of my friends and we had an unforgettable time. Mr. Nandana’s driving was very comfortable and he was very safe in the busy Sri Lankan roads. He also was fluent in his Arabic which made me and my friends feel like home during our tour. Sri Lanka has so much to offer to anyone whether you seek adventure, culture, nature and wildlife, or especially beaches. It is a country which has everything. I will definitely be visiting Sri Lanka again for a longer period and will highly recommend Traverse Lanka to anyone planning to visit Sri Lanka.

“Truly Amazing, Thank You Traverse Lanka!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Our family traveled to Sri Lanka 6 months ago. We had an amazingly wonderful experience with Traverse Lanka, a truly trustworthy local tour operator.

I was skeptical when my husband first suggested Sri Lanka as our holiday destination. After much research, I could not believe how much this small island has to offer! The many UNESCO heritage sites, beaches (everywhere), mountains, nature trails, rainforests, boat trips, whale-watching, national parks, you name it! It is unbelievably educational and fun!

To be specific, it is Mr. Ravi who had made our 2 weeks’ vacation so remarkable and unforgettable. His sincerity and honesty in treating us like family has warmed our hearts.
I came to know Traverse Lanka via a friend’s recommendation. We were not only satisfied but, in fact, grateful of what Mr. Ravi has done throughout our vacation. He had helped us with many issues including pulling us out from a really spooky guesthouse that I had chosen. His carefulness and sensitivity towards safety issues made us felt very safe to be with him. Our children especially love to be with him. He took them to walk around the paddy field, introducing tuk-tuk to my son and many more.

We were extremely touched and impressed when our children received newly bought T-shirts and books in return of 2 books that they had read and given to Mr. Ravi’s children. Despite their simple life, they did not take for granted our insignificant act. We were truly touched!

(My children said it is the best holiday ever!)

I will not hesitate to recommend Mr. Ravi and his team to anyone who wishes to visit Sri Lanka. They have treated us like family, never in anyway taking advantage of us, for that, I am truly grateful and would like to take this opportunity to say “ Thank you, Mr. Ravi.”

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

You couldn't ask for a more responsible and friendly driver than Mr Ravi. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

His car was wonderfully comfortable with working seatbelts, and his driving made us feel very safe on the busy Sri Lankan roads.
