          Our memorable Sri Lankan holiday
          Well tailored itinerary to take in the beautiful sights of Sri Lanka… Leon and Nicola selected great hotels and was patient and thorough in helping us with our plans. Also managed to get us the best tour guide Rohan, who made our trip so enjoyable! Blown away by the experience!

          Hayleys were excellent throughout, with very clear and prompt communications in the selection/pre-holiday period which made us feel that they were always on top of things. In the lead up to the trip we changed our minds on the itinerary many times and were quite particular about our accommodation choices: Hayley’s handled this very well. We always felt that we as customers were in control of the construction of the tour and not being pushed into doing things we weren’t interested in. This is very important in a tour operator especially if you are frequent travellers. Conversely I would say that Hayleys would be an excellent choice if you were unsure about what to do in Sri Lanka and preferred the tour operator to be more in the driving seat in terms of planning. Special mention to Dilan at Hayleys who met us twice, once at the beginning and once at the end, to help us with some admin that needed doing in person. Both of these took place on the weekend and shows that Hayleys will go an extra mile to accommodate the needs of the customers. Our tour itself was very good, well organised with professional and courteous drivers. They were always on or ahead of time and we never felt in a rush or that we would be late. This is important of course on vacation. Would recommend to anyone planning a holiday to Sri Lanka, particularly if going for the first time. (Actually visited December 2019)

          Hayleys is the ONLY travel group to go through. Stop looking.
          Working with Hayley’s was easy especially with Leon. Their communication was non stop even on weekends. They coordinated everything very well from our transport to the hotel Stay to even sweet gifts given to us. We will be back because of our experience with Hayley’s.

          Super stay at Amaya lake
          I had a stay for four days. From the time we checked in the staff was so friendly and courteous. Rooms are good, food was delicious, peaceful environment and a homely stay. We enjoyed the Awurudu festival and the Awurudu lunch was amazing. Thank you chef Kala, Manujaya, Sanjaya, Dilini, Dasuni and Kosalaa for looking after us sooo caring and carefully. Sorry I can’t remember the the other names. Thanks for giving us a wonderful time

          Sri Lanka tour
          This was a great experience - Sri Lanka is a beautiful island - it has culture and natural beauty and the people are just the best. Our driver/guide Shihan was great - very knowledgeable about the island and a very good driver on the sometimes chaotic roads. Nothing was too much trouble and he made a good holiday great. Would recommend unreservedly

          Sri Lanka
          We went to Sri Lanka and had an amazing time. Our driver Nilantha was excellent, very knowledgeable and kept us entertained. He put our safety first, told us a lot of useful local information, took us to very tasty restaurants and ensured our holiday plans ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend him to others!

          Sri Lanka - a true dream holiday
          Wonderful tour of Sri Lanka. It’s become quite my favourite place. The sights, sounds, smells stay with you - as do the people, who are incredibly friendly and helpful. We went to Habarana, where we saw elephants and took a balloon ride, Kandy, an incredibly beautiful city, and Colombo. Special mention to our tour guide/chauffeur Tyrone. Nothing was too much trouble for him - including getting up at 5am to make sure we were all set for our balloon ride. If you get the chance, ask for him by name!
