          Deep in to budhism....
          We were here in a private tour, all info about budism(theory and practice) were well received, we spotted the people doing prayers&ofrandes, learned not to do pictures to people/tourists in front of budha(!).We saw the famous sacred elephant(mummified).After all a religious experience for the non budhist.

          Great jeep safari in Yala National Park
          The driver who met us at the port and took us to meet the safari guide was great. The safari guide was skillful in finding the animals for us to see. We were extremely pleased with the experience from beginning to end. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

          Amazing trip. Very well organised by Mahesh and the team. We did three day trip to Sigiriya Rock and Minneriya National Park with 4 kids under 5. Mahesh organised the whole trip plus car seats and our driver looked after us the whole time. Would definitely recommend.

          Kandy .. A must too destination
          I am sure it is amazing however having already done Siem Reap etc etc Just about templed out.. The roof however when it shone across the lake was stunning but was shadowed in our opinion by the turtles, Huge Bats, Monitors, Cranes, Egrets Monkeys and Kingfishers in the most amazing TREES surrounding the lake which you can walk around for free... just saying that's all... definitely go here if you can :)

          Wild Elephants :)
          Our guide was fantastic, very observant and we were lucky to see crocodiles, elephants :) and lots of birds. On arrival it was very busy and lots of 4x4s crowded together, mostly empty which was sad as we could have shared vehicles and reduced the traffic. However, once we got properly into the park it was much quieter and barely saw anyone else. Lovely picnic spot by the river and the baby elephant made me happy

          Temple of the tooth relic Kandy
          This is a very holy place for Buddhists hence it is a must visit for religious reasons, however as a tourist you may not find it worth the money as the temple and important items in the temple are closed and open only for certain intervals of time. When we went around noon everything was closed and we saw scores of pilgrims waiting for the temple to open . As a keen tourist I had nothing much to see except for the external temple building. Additionally the walk from the ticket counter is a short walk however in the scorching sun you may burn your foot as you have to remove your foot wear before entering the temple premises. If you don’t know the correct time when the temple is open then you may want to rethink before going in.

          See Elephants Don’t Ride Them
          Got lucky and had the jeep to ourselves, but sharing wouldn’t have been a problem. Driver had eyes like a hawk and stopped to show us so much. Memorable and peaceful moments alone with wild elephants - best way to see Udawalawe without disturbing the wildlife. Transit Home before or after your visit is a must. £100 per person all in (return taxi from Mirissa included) sounds a lot, but it’s the going rate and good value.

          badly organised and dissapointing
          We received a text the day before changing the time of our trip from 1pm to 8am. not a big problem. They said they would be waiting for us when we got off the ship, they did not say we had to get to the dock gate (approx 5 minute drive). We then sat in bus for 45 minutes whilst they waited for other people presumably who did not have the correct joining instructions. Approx 1 hour drive to destination. If you want to see birds, water buffalo, deer, crocodiles back and an elephant behind bushes this trip is for you. No sign of leopard. The place was rammed with safari trucks. Our driver was good a spotting what we saw.

          Another tourist scam
          I went today on this safari and it turned out to be a complete scam. The driver did not speak at all english, he knew nothing about the animals, he just stopped where he saw ohter cars. He didn't buy us the bottle of water that is included in the price & said that he cannot stop for us to buy lunch. We ended up not eating 10 hours and seeing mostly birds & 4 elephants. It's not a safari tour, rather some beachboys looking to make easy money. Do not recommend

        My wife and I went to Sri Lanka for our Honeymoon. First of all, what an amazing country. Second we hired a car and driver with Lakpura for our entire trip and I would not have done it any other way. What a great value, so convenient and worry free with the freedom to go wherever and whenever we liked. We even took the train from Ella to Kandy and our driver was waiting for us at the station. We had a great car and were comfortable the entire time. Even with 2 large suitcases, 1 small one and our carry-ons. What made it so great was our driver Upul was the best. So eager to share any information, great communication, professional and even took us to a couple of cool sights we didn't even know existed.

        My daughter and I arrived in Colombo airport from the Uk, and were met by Chinthaka, a driver with this company. He arrived on time, and drove us 5 hours to our first hotel in Sigiriya. 2 days later he drove us to Nanu Oya to catch the train to Ella. Due to wrong information from the hotel, we cut the time to get to the train extremely fine, but Chinthaka drove v well and got us to the station with 15 mins to spare.
        Quality of driving and car very good
        Highly recommend.

        We chose Lakpura to arrange a 3 day tour from our hotel near Yala and finish in Negombo and were very pleased that we did.
        We originally gave them our ideas of what we hoped to do and see on the way and then they offered some very good advice and tips based on their local knowledge of what they thought was best for us.
        Overall nothing was too much trouble for them (thanks to Madubashini Dassanayaka who organised/ booked everything and also our driver Shantha who was excellent throughout and always on time).
        We got the exact seats we wanted on the train from Badulla to Kandy and our whole tour went like clockwork from the moment we were collected from our hotel to when we were dropped off.
        We cannot thank Lakpura enough and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

        My initial interactions with Lakpura were promising, and Lakpura lived up to every promise. I was met each time on time by an English-speaking driver as requested, and the car was in perfect condition. Each time, I was delivered to my destination in time. Thank you to Lakpura for giving me peace of mind. It was a pleasure to pay the fare. Please keep on doing what you are doing, because you have got it right. Every blessing.

        We were on holidays in Sri Lanka for the New Year and had arranged for chauffeur driven car pick up at the Colombo airport for drop off at Unawatuna Beach House. The driver was very courteous & met us at the airport punctually .... the car was neat and clean and well maintained.We enjoyed a very pleasant drive from Colombo to Unawatuna with the driver sharing his knowledge of the country with us. Overall , Lakpura services for transfers were great and much appreciated. Similarly , I used Lakpura services for transferring us from Unawatuna to Kandy and they were able to provide a knowledgeable driver who was able to guide us on the way to also visit Susantha Spice Gardens and the Tea & Gem Factory in Kandy. Overall , we made a great decision to choose Lakpura to arrange our holiday stays and transfers. For sure , on our next trip to Sri Lanka, we will again choose Lakpura for stress free and & enjoyable holidays.

        The transfer was great. Our flight was delayed by around an hour or so. The driver was still waiting at the arrivals for us with the clear sign. We then had a very comfortable journey up to Kandy. Would 100% recommend using this. It was so easy when we were tired after our long journey!

        We booked for a 4 day tour of Sri Lanka and wanted to be collected from the airport and dropped at the port for a cruise in 4 days time. We could not have choose a better way of seeing areas of Sri Lanka and in the comfort of your own private car and driver. We researched areas of the country we wanted to see and Jason arrange our schedule.
        Our allocated driver Shanta was excellent from the moment we arrived at the airport he was there with a placard showing our name right until dropping us off at the port in Columbo to board our Cruise.
        The places we decided to visit were the elephant sanctuary in Pinnawala, Galle, fishermen on stilts, Turtle sanctuary, herd and spices farm.
        ONE WARNING: Driving in Sri Lanka is not for the faint hearted so be prepared for an adventure.

        The transport we arranged from Colombo to Sigiriya was very good.
        We were picked up on time and our driver was very helpful and lovely. During the trip he stopped to show us points of interest and informed us of historical events.
        I was quite worried when I initially booked the transport on line as the site was not a recommendation to me. But I found the booking process very easy and the e mails came straight through to advise of the pickup confirmation.
        I could not fault anything and I would highly recommend this transport.
