          ARUNA: THE VERY BEST SERVICE
          Aruna drive us from Sigiriya to Kandy. He is an excellent driver and a very very nice and kind person. When I realised I had left my kindle in the resort he arranged to have it picked up and brought to Kandy for me. He was in touch all the time … and because we had left Kandy before it arrived he arranged to have it delivered all the way to Ella. What a super service ! When we had a fiasco about a scam regarding train tickets we had purchased online from Kandy to Ella, he brought us to the station early that morning and waited to see if we got train tickets on the day. He also arranged transport for my daughter to go from Ella back to Colombo to catch her flight. This driver was also very reliable, punctual and a very safe driver! I would highly recommend him and I will be telling my friends and family to use Aruna Tours!! A five star service!!*****

          Amazing one-day-trip to Dambulla/Sigiriya
          We did a day Tour from Kandy to Dambulla and Sigiriya and also visited a traditional village with delicious food. We had an amazing time, Aruna took us everywhere we wanted so we could take many pictures. He is a very safe and calm driver and very attentive to our needs and wishes. We definitely recommend a tour or trip with Aruna!

          Great day to experience Kandy
          Aruna showed me in a fascinating way Kandy, also far from the classic tourist hot spots. He knows how to offer visitors a good mix of culture, background information and entertainment. I can definitely recommend him for whatever you want to experience in Kandy.

          Great day touring Kandy
          My friend and I had a great day touring the must-see spots in Kandy just yesterday. Sajith was an excellent guide, super professional and with great communication ahead of time over WhatsApp, and a super safe driver (we had a van with great air conditioning). Friendly and knowledgeable. You’ll be glad you hired them!

          Great driver for our trip
          We booked this company to pick us up at the airport and drive us to Kandy. They also came the following morning and were prompt and took us to the station - and then drove over four hours to collect us at Haputale with all of our luggage to take us to our next hotel. Sajidh was really friendly, a great driver, knew his way and even stopped on route at a beer shop to pick up some beers for us to have on our journey. Would definitely use again.

          Best travel guide to go for!
          Aruna is a very professional and one of the best driver/ tour guide we have ever met. He gave the best plan to cover most of the places in Sri Lanka. He accompanied us for all places and acted as a tour guide. Looking forward for our next trip to Sri Lanka with him. Thank you Aruna for making our trip memorable!!

          nice, safe and fun ride with the tuktuk
          He drove us from Kandy out next stop Sigiriya. The trip was fun! We felt safe all the time and he was really friendly and caring for us. He shared the knowledge about everything that came along during our drive there. Either cultural, fruits or just geographical stuff - really good! As of our wish we stopped to buy some fruits and he showed us some, we did not try before :)

          Lovely guy - makes a huge effort for your enjoyment
          Aruna showed us the great sites of beautiful Sri Lanka. He took myself and wife safely around the country and we had a fantastic time. His prices were incredibly reasonable and his company was pleasant. I’d strongly recommend a few days seeing the country with a tour guide as the roads are a nightmare and Aruna is definitely a great shout. He’ll look after you.

        Aruna was an excellent guide during our time in Kandy, taking us to both the main sights in the city, as well as lesser known, "hidden treasures" that we never would have seen had we done this ourselves. Aruna was very flexible and accommodating with our plans, and I would highly recommend to anyone.

        Highly recommended this tour we went to a couple of temples that most foreigners don’t get to go to, the Gardens are lovely, spice tour, kandan dancers & viewing area that overlooks Kandy. Our tour guide Sajith was great asking us what we wanted to do and see and also making suggestions.

        What an amazing, educational and memorabl tour. Mr Arunas knowledge, hospitality and overal attitude is one of the best I have ever had on any tour in the world. Whether it was from the contact before the tour, the hopsitlsity where nothing is a problem or the knowledge of questions about anything and everything, nothing wsd too much. I will without a doubt be keeping on contact for my next visit to Sri Lanka and using him as my tour guide. A day ticked off my bucket list thanks to Mr Aruna
