          Ceylon travels - One stop solution for Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 tours!
          Having decided fairly early on, Sri Lanka was set as our go to place for the honeymoon having an optimal mix of land, water, mountains with lush greenery. All research conducted pointed towards having a tour guide for ease of travel and arrangements, and thats when we stumbled upon Ceylon travels (having also heard of them through a friend) Our experience with Buddhika, from Ceylon travel and dreams has been nothing short of extraordinary. He was incredibly patient in hearing our interests, highly accommodating of our proposed changes in the journey and always willing to find the solution. He not only provided us with the optimal route for our 10 day trip but also booked plausibly the best hotels within our budger. We have had the best trip of our lives, all thanks to Buddhika, and his excellent tour guide who I would rate amongst the best in Sri Lanka. The tour guide (also the driver) whose name was also Buddhika is a very kind hearted man, and took care of us like family. Overall, this trip far exceeded our expectations and cannot wait to be back with the wider family, and obviously doing all the arrangements through Ceylon.

          Ramayana tour and Bentota beach experience
          From the time we landed in Colombo to the time we left Colombo back home Buddhika at Ceylon Travel dream and our great Guide Chamila took amazing care of us. Chamila was very informative and treated us like family, we travelled and visited a lot of places in Sri Lanka, he was very caring with my elderly family members and gave us an excellent tour around Sri Lanka. Ceylon Travel dream was very accommodating and very adjusting around our itinerary, they provided us with all the information and was easy to communicate with them, highly recommend them for future travels to Sri Lanka.

          Nice option
          One of the most commendable aspects of Ceylon Travel Dream is their adaptability and flexibility. From the outset, they demonstrated their willingness to accommodate our schedule and preferences, seamlessly adjusting our itinerary to include additional destinations and modify routes, even at the last minute. Their ability to pivot without compromising the quality of our experience was truly impressive. Communication is key when planning a trip, and Ceylon Travel Dream excels in this regard. Their responsiveness to our queries was exemplary, with prompt and clear communication that instilled confidence in their services. By Whatsapp, they were always readily available to address any concerns or queries, ensuring a smooth and stress-free planning process. Ceylon Travel Dream impressed us with their flexibility and adaptability. They were quick to adjust our itinerary to fit our preferences, even making last-minute changes without any hassle. Their ability to accommodate our needs without compromising on quality was impressive. Communication with Ceylon Travel Dream was excellent. They responded promptly to our messages, providing clear and helpful information via Whatsapp. Their availability and responsiveness made the planning process easy and stress-free. Furthermore, Ceylon Travel Dream matched the prices offered by other agencies, showing their dedication to customer satisfaction. The only no-so-positive comment that we have is that, while our driver-guide was skilled at driving and certified by the Tourism Board of Sri Lanka, he was very new to the places, so we got lost several times and had to stop and ask for directions frequently. Also, even though we were not expecting a full-guide tour, we we would have appreciated a bit more information on the places where we were going specially due to his certification. Apart from this, the driver-guide was super friendly and we are sure he will improve quickly. Overall, Ceylon Travel Dream earns a solid four-star rating. While there is room for improvement in pricing transparency and guide expertise, their commitment to customer satisfaction shines through.

          A Complete Dream Holiday!!!
          This was our first trip to Sri Lanka. From first enquiry, their recommendations according to our interests, booking, paying deposit and pre-trip communication everything was excellent. We paid the balance after arrival! We chose Wildlife and Nature Tour which included Sigiriya, Minnerya, the tea plantations, iconic train ride to Ella, Hiking in Horton Plains, Yala wildlife and Bundala wetlands. We completed with a beach stay and our trip lasted 12 days. From secretive herds of elephants, a large male leopard sunning himself at Yala to seeing a baby eagle in its nest and the multitude of glorious birds at Bundala where we were about the only jeep around Ceylon Travel Dream indeed has delivered a holiday we could only dream about! With no nightmares! From arrival in Sri Lanka we had no worries at all Ceylon Travel Dream’s driver, Chamil, was there to help from the moment we landed. He took on the job of us enjoying Sri Lanka to the max in a very professional and fun way, always respecting our wishes on trips and rest. He was kind, considerate and easy to be with. We felt secure in his hands. The vehicle was excellent. Accommodation was all excellent and we experienced some beautiful hotels even though we said we didn’t need luxury! We enjoyed it immensely. All meals were included so we got to try out a lot of options. Excellent standard in everything! Amazing really. Most memorable though are the tours. The wildlife is so close and the jeep guides did their best to help us see the world’s best animals! We will never forget some of those encounters! We would DEFINITELY book Ceylon Travel Dream again. Fantastic value for the price!

          🌿 Enchanting Journey at Horton Plains! 🌄
          My recent visit to Horton Plains, Sri Lanka, in last December was a spellbinding journey into nature's embrace. The trek to World's End unveiled breathtaking landscapes, where the plains dramatically drop, creating an awe-inspiring panoramic view. Mini World's End, with its unique charm, added to the enchantment of the adventure. The mist-laden trails created a mystical ambiance, enhancing the beauty of the surroundings. Baker's Falls provided a refreshing interlude with its cascading waters, and the resident wildlife added a touch of wilderness to the experience. The knowledgeable park rangers shared insights into the local ecosystem, adding depth to the journey. Horton Plains is a must-visit for nature lovers, offering well-maintained trails and a serene atmosphere. The combination of World's End, Mini World's Ends, misty trails, and diverse wildlife creates a captivating and beautiful environment. Kudos to Horton Plains for preserving this ecological gem, providing an unforgettable adventure that truly showcases Sri Lanka's pristine beauty.

          Exceptional Travel Company
          Awesome travel arrangements from Ceylon Travel Dream. The driver was exceptional and the hotels which they have booked for us. All the tours and guides deserve good marks, and they know what they were doing. They also provided me with a free tour and was cool. I would highly recommend using Ceylon Travel Dream if you are visiting Sri Lanka.

          Perfect day , perfect guide , everybody had a good time
          The pick up was on time and the driver gave the best most comfortable tour, car was fine and Sampath was amazing, no hard sell on other places to visit just took us where we booked to go and gave good advice, used his local knowledge to get us good entrance prices to attractions. His driving was exceptional and we felt very safe indeed.

          Worth the price
          Good experience for an affordable price. The service was good, everything as arranged. The car and the jeep were comfortable enough. The only disadvantage was the fact that the driver who picked us up from the hotel spoke little English, so it was sometimes difficult to communicate.

          It was very crowded and so challenging since it was weekend and school holiday. But the view is amazing. I would do it again and again. Just in crowded days, I would start like 12 p.m or even earlier in order to catch the sun rise on the top. There are ques on the way and sometimes you have to wait more than an hour.

          Good Tour
          Suranga picked us up right on the time and the car was very clean and comfortable. First stop was the temple. The sculptures and the colours were really amazing, so ornate. Next was the salt factory tour. It was interesting to see the salt production process from drying, collecting, processing to packaging. Suranga was a great guide and very pleasant.

          Diani Beach
          Diani Beach was so so awesome. We managed to swim in the Indian Ocean and on our night of arrival it rained so much and we loved walking in the Kenyan rain. Kudos to Ultimate Adventures for a well planned holiday package. I recommend anyone wishing to visit Kenya to engage Ultimate Adventures.
