          Must try experience
          We had an amazing trip. The views were unreal and the driver was so very accommodating. It took the full day and we were shattered by the end of it but it was so worth it. The climb to the top is hard, but once you’re there you’ll understand why you done it. Highly recommend this trip.

          Professional and reliable
          I have quoted with few tourism agencies and Apple was the only one who was professional from the start, very responsive and flexible, so I decided to go ahead with them straight away. Chathu, our guide, was very knowledgeable and adaptable, and he tweaked the itinerary to meet our needs and of our little child. We can highly recommend their work!!!

          Great tour, excellent operator.
          This was a fantastic tour that included two really great activities in addition to the temple in Kandy. Our driver, the guide at the temple and the communication with the company were very professional. The company helped us book late the evening before. We then did another two tours with this company that included some personalised elements too. We were so impressed by their professionalism and care.

          Sigiriya was our perfect tour.
          The driver and the guide were very reliable and helpful in every steps in our tour to Lion’s rock. I recommend this agency.

          Good tour
          We had a great tour with Krish, who was a great guide and fun to talk to during the long rides. We saw the sea turtles, toured the river, and had about an hour in Galle. Made it back to Colombo around 7 after starting around 8:45.

          A remarkable trip
          Had a wonderful tour of the World Heritage Site Sigiriya Rock, Dambulla Cave Temples and a village excursion. It was private tour of a small group. Starting off early morning really helped in having enough time to see each place without any rush. The tour is well curated and just enough for a day trip. There is a lot of history behind the temples and the Sigiriya Rock. And it was wonderful to have Chathu as our guide who was quite knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the trip. Would love to have him as our guide with future tours with the tour operator. Regarding the site itself, it is something not to be missed on a Sri Lanka trip. It was exactly how I expected and fortunately the weather also helped in that. It wasn't too hot and there was no rain. It does take an effort to reach the top of the Sigiriya rock, but the incredible view from the top is worth every effort. It was a memorable trip indeed.

          Perfect organisation of the trip!
          Perfect organization of the trip, nice driver, we have been to the Dambulla temple and Sigiryia rock. Everything went as agreed with the travel agency, we booked the trip directly from Europe with them. Were very satisfied.

          Fantastic trip in Srilanka
          Excellent agency for a trip in Srilanka , they keep up with their commitment no extra money will be charged not even a penny, They know what they do , and respective with the driver Ravi , he is a gentleman he helped so much in Horton plains , he carried out our toddler almost for half the distance and no other driver would definitely do that , he did not force us what to do when to do , he was so compatible and accommodating with our plans , I would definitely recommend him for a family with kids especially. He is such a supportive and wonderful person , no unnecessary talks did his job well. A Special thanks to Suren , I have never seen someone be so responsive , he is always available for anything and everything and anytime. He plans well according to your needs and tell the fact rather than try to launder money from your pockets. If you go to Srilanka I would definitely recommend Apple vacations, Suren and his team then you are absolutely safe. Hands down to Suren and Ravi for making our trip memorable.

          Awesome experience
          Naveen and the driver were very welcoming and they were to go out of their way in picking me up at an Airbnb. They made sure I was I had the accommodations I needed as we headed out to Ella area. It was a full day of having a tour guide all around the Nine Arch Bridges, waterfall, look outs and so forth. Definitely recommend Apple vacations.

          Great tour
          Great tour. The drive from Colombo to Kandy was brutal. That is the only negative experience for us. Love everything else.
