          12 Days Private Tour
          We had an amazing private tour with Kingfisher Tours. From the planning stage to the airport drop off at the end of the tour we experienced fabulous communication and service. Aashik provided excellent services to help us plan our bespoke itinerary. He was responsive and developed a clear itinerary designed for our family and its needs. Our guide, Aswar was knowledgeable, organised, calm and flexible through out the tour. He supported the logistics of the tour professionally while also sharing his extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Sri Lanka. We enjoyed getting to know him through the tour. We also appreciated our driver, Fazreen. Fazreen was an exceptionally considerate and safe driver which made us feel secure. Huge thank you to the Kingfisher Tours team especially Aashik, Aswar and Fazreen.

          A Paradise Tour
          We family of 12 doesn't know anything until we find this beautiful company ! We started planning our trip to Sri Lanka before 6 months and once we found Kingfisher Tours we are more than happy that they solved our headache of organizing thing. soon after we contacted them, Aashik their guest relations manager got in touch with me by a phone call and when i explain him my requirements he provided me with a wonderful itinerary well planned and organized in each locations we would travel. We are super happy with him and excited to visit Sri Lanka ! On the day of our arrival we were greeted with Gardlands of flowers and taken to the vehicle. The Coach was very clean, neat and luxury we travelled with lots of joy with our Guide Aswar. He was very knowledgable and fun person who became a family of us at the end. The hotels were more than we expected with wondeful views and the food was amazing. There is no single mistake to tell about this company as they are always behind us to check weather everything is going on well. We feel sad that we didn't have much time to explore more and stay here because Sri Lanka is truly a paradise and we will definitely come back soon Thank you team Kingfisher for arranging such wonderful tour for my family Lots of love from Belgium Janet ;)

          Amazing Sri Lanka
          We had an amazing 8 days round tour with Kingfisher Tours Sri Lanka and their hospitality is topnotch. We cannot recommend more than this but im sure they will serve everyone like us. We were more than friends and happily enjoyed the tour with our amazing guide Aruna who is very knowledgable and neat driving along everywhere in Sri Lanka. The hotels they choosed us is also very clean and with perfect locations. We are really happy choosing them and will definitely come back soon to explore more around this beautiful island

          Steep stair climb
          At the base are guides wanting payment to assist you with the climb. Going rate was US$25pp without negotiation. If you are fit and capable to do lots of stairs you do not need a guide as the path is easy to follow. As an older couple we stopped several times to catch our breath. There are a lot of stairs. Great experience and recommended

          BEWARE SCAMMERS! We forgot €1,800 in the safe at the hotel. The boss took it and gave it out. He stole it! He spent it for his private purposes and has not paid it back to this day. A liar and cheater. Book better with others.

          Fabulous Sri Lanka with children
          This being our third trip to Sri Lanka we were hoping to have an experience we hadn’t had before. We used Aashik and Kingfisher to provide a driver and book all of our accommodation for 7 nights. From our first contact with Aashik he was more than accommodating, providing multiple options for hotels and if they didn’t suit he found alternatives. Anyone who has been to Sri Lanka knows that no trip goes 100% according to plan, but what makes the difference is how your tour operator handles the “speed bumps” which arise, Aashik addressed all of the challenges without fail and made sure we had a wonderful stay. He found us some absolutely stunning hotels in amazing locations. He was flexible with the itinerary and was on hand to offer advice when needed which is exactly what you need when you’re traveling with kids.

          Fabulous tour in Colombo!
          We booked a van for 6 people and toured the sites and did some shopping as well. Our guide Khan was wonderful! He was charming, polite, friendly, and knowledgeable. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and stayed with us wherever we went to assist or answer any questions. The driver was great too. Whenever we came back to the van, he had already started it up so the a/c was flowing for our comfort. Khan's wife had just had a baby 12 hours earlier and he shared with us a photo of his beautiful little baby girl. He was a delight ,as was our entire day.

        I had a short layover in Sri Lanka and booked a tour with King Fisher along with an airport transfer. Arriving at 4 AM on a rainy day in a crowded airport, there was no one to pick me up. Later that day, no one showed up for my afternoon tour either. The hotel manager took pity on me and arranged a driver, though he wasn't a guide, so my day didn't go as planned. Before the trip, Asshik from King Fisher sent me long messages boasting about being one of the best companies in Sri Lanka. When I messaged him about the missed pickups, he apologized, claiming a mistake, and continued to emphasize their professionalism and status. If this is one of the best, I dread to think how bad the worst could be
