We came to Sri Lanka for our summer holiday august 2022. We planned to stay 15 days in Sri Lanka. Our experience was wonderful. Indika came to pick us up at the AirPort, and we started out trip. We must say that Indika has been the best guide we had so far ( and we like to travel a lot :p). He has been always paying attention to details. He was 24 hours available for us. Indika helped us to get better prices and showed us a lot of local culture. He was very respectful and very kind and nice to us. I would say that our trip exceeded our expectations thanks to Indika and Amitha (the big boss). We highly recommend to hire them as i said, They made our Sri Lanka experience Great.

Our driver Indika, made this 8 day trip to Sri Lanka a trip of a lifetime. From the moment he picked us up from the airport we knew we were in good hands. He had our original schedule, but offered many options that were personal and special. Every morning he greeted us with a warm smile and set the tone for a fun filled day of adventure and learning. Anytime we decided to change our plans he was very accommodating and flexible. He always knew someone to call to help arrange our new adventure. Always on time. He safety navigated the rural roads that made you thankful he was driving. He was with us every step of the way. If we wanted to go to a local place to eat he found us the perfect experience. He is the perfect combination of driver/tour guide. And he gave us many authentic, local experiences. He is a trusting, kind, knowledgeable person. I highly recommend Indika for any Sri Lankan adventure. My teenage daughter and I (mother and daughter traveling alone) learned so much about the culture and people of Sri Lanka. Not only is the country beautiful but so are the people. Indika is an exceptional tour guide and in the end he also became our friend.

My new wife and I had the first stop of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and Amith went above and beyond anything we could have imagined to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and got the full experience. We did a 4 night five day tour with airport pick up and drop off and it was the best decision to book with him. He’s extremely knowledgeable and can answer any question you ask about his country. He let us customize the things we wanted to do and made sure we got the most out of every moment. He arranged Covid tests for our flight to the Maldives, found us an amazing hotel in kandy where we hadn’t booked there yet, and even took us to the airport at 4 am. We left thinking of him as a friend and I highly recommend you stop looking and book with him immediately if you want the most out of your trip. If his amazing tour wasn’t enough, after we returned back home to Texas, my wife was a bit sad about losing some paintings we bought in Sri Lanka at the airport. I texted Amith about it and HE FOUND THE ARTIST, GOT THEM REPAINTED AND MAILED THEM TO TEXAS!!! He’s not just a great tour guide, he is a great human and we already decided we will be back again to do the another tour with him. I have traveled to at least 2 new countries every year for the past 16 years and have had multiple tour guides because I love to learn and experience things from a locals perspective, if I’d rank everyone on a list, he’d be at the top!! My wife was skeptical about traveling with a tour guide and she admits now that it’s the best way she has traveled (and she is a big traveler too) Book with him now! Trust me, you’ll be missing out if you don’t.
