      Tuk tuk extravaganza
      We had an amazing time with Irfan. He arrived right on time to our resort to pick us and proceeded with the city tour. The tuk tuk is very clean and well maintained. Irfan is very calm and allowed us to set the pace for the tour. He also let us add sites that were not part of the original tour. Aaliya tuk tuk tour is the perfect way yo get an introduction to Kandy.

      A fabulous trip to Dabulla/Sigiriya
      We really wanted to visit the Sigiriya lion rock and we are so glad that we had Irfan with us. Would highly recommend this day tour for anyone who wants to see more outside the big cities. Irfan made this a very memorable trip for us starting with the pick up at our accomodation and he was driving around Dambulla and Sigiriya and always checking on us ensuring that we have the most great time. Irfan is a very experienced, friendly local guide, and we were very fortunate to have him showing the Sri Lankan temples, food and nature!

      Day trip to Sigiriya and Dambulla
      Irfan was a great tour guide- I appreciated that he asked for feedback throughout the day, and would change the tour according to what we wanted. He was polite, knowledgeable, friendly and easy to understand. He even got us some surprise treats which was lovely. Our highlights were climbing sigiriya and also eating local fruit- I would highly recommend taking this tour :)

      Excellent organization and service
      I chose this trip because it combined all the beautiful temples in the area and I can highly recommend it! Ask for Ilham when you book - he is one of the best driverguides I've ever had! It's fun talking to him and he tries very hard to give you a wonderful day providing you with a lot of information on wildlife, Sri Lankan people and traditions and even suggests additional activities on the way. It was just a perfect day! Thank you Ilham and Aaliya Tours! Excellent organization and service! 👍👍👍

      The extra mile <3
      They go the extra mile for their customers! Quit literally they helped me retrieve a lost item without asking anything in return. If you are looking for a trustworthy tour company with the heart in the right place, go for this one!

      Sigiriya day tour
      Mr Irfan was a great tour guide, he picked me up promptly at the start and very quickly made me feel comfortable about the itinerary for the day by explaining everything very clearly. We stopped off at a great place for breakfast were we could have a traditional Sri Lankan spread the roti and daal were a particular favourite of mine. He continued to point out interesting landmarks along the way including rice fields and mango farms we even made a stop off at a fruit stand where we were able to try some fresh mangos. Our final stop was Sigiriya which was really spectacular the view from the stop was breathtaking as you could see lots of vegetation for miles and miles. The total tour was about 8 hours including visiting two temples, the car was really comfortable during the journey and Mr Irfan continued to make sure I was ok during the tour by offering as many breaks as needed. I would definitely recommend using this company and Mr Irfan for any of your tours in the future.

      On the go all day, 5 stars
      Great, super long day! Ilham was amazing so actually booked him the next day. We did ask to modify the day to start later, but still were on the road for 12+ hours (we shortened the safari part and skipped some other pieces). Would do again.

      Amazing experience
      We did a one day tour with Mr. irfan which was amazing! He took us around the main temples, Sigiriya and an elephant safari but i loved the special care he took to buy us local snacks, mangoes and a traditional curry rice lunch. Do not miss!

      Don't Miss This Experience!
      This was a suggestion from Aaliya Tours and I was very grateful, as the drive and train ride was unforgettable. A true and authentic experience in Sri Lanka. A drive up into the Tamil mountains and then a local train ride along the tops and down into the other side. Nuwareeliya is so unique - like a European mountain town. My guide, Fawny, was very knowledgeable and attentive and catered the day to my liking. I consider Fawny a good friend as he took such good care of me during my trip to Sri Lanka. Don't miss this drive and train ride! Ask for Fawny!

      A Truly Magical Experience
      This was one of the more magical days of the trip. Sigiriya and Dambulla cannot be missed. My guide, Irfan, was superb in then adding the elephant safari in Minneriya at the end of the day. It was one of the best days of my life. I cannot say enough about Aaliya and how accommodating they were in making everything happen. Irfan is a great guide and he is well supported by Aaliya's staff.

      Irfan is the goat
      Don’t even know where to begin with, the trip was hands down one of the most incredible day tours I’ve ever done. Our driver Irfan went above and beyond, constantly getting us food and water, offering to take pics, adding additional activities to our itinerary. Irfan was the reason why we enjoyed the day tour so much! The village tour was the highlight, so so good :) Thanks again to Irfan for showing us a great time and taking a good care of us all day

    Very memorable day with the driver. Pick up on time, he took me for delicious Shri lankan breakfast, and oaud. Then drove to polannaruwa and Irfan was very patient ith me wanting to spend time sketching. His English was good and we had great conversations as he took me round the sites.i would recommend Irfan.

    This tour is a must for anyone interested in the history of Sri Lanka. We were absolutely stunned by Polonnaruwa. The medieval ruins are beautiful and cover a surprisingly large area. Our driver took us from site to site within the ancient city, and always gave us as much time as we needed to see things. Otherwise it would have been impossible to see the ruins in one day without staying overnight somewhere nearby. It is quite far from Kandy, so having your own driver is the best way of seeing Polonnawura if you only have one day to do it. This company has proven itself to be very reliable. We also booked a Sigiriya tour with them, and were satisfied both times.
