We had a wonderful day with Angelina as our guide to the Yala National Park and afterwards to Kataragama! Angelina organized everything very well: our pick-up from our guesthouse in Tangalle, the Jeep and driver&tracker in the Yala National Park, lunch at a local place and the afternoon trip to Kataragama. Yala was an amazing experience, we can definitely recommend to do it with Around Sri Lanka Tours, because they watch out that animals are not hunted but discovered. We saw a lot of animals and nice nature. Elephants came really close to our Jeep! What I really liked about Around Sri Lanka was their helpful way to give good recommendations which suited us. Furthermore Angelina knows a lot about the country and its culture! Her English, Dutch and German is perfect and she can switch between the languages so quickly. Very impressive, Angelina! For the night she organized us very spontaneously a driver to get to the Rekawa Beach to see the turtles. Thanks a lot, we really enjoyed the day!!

Dear Laura, thank you so much for this amazing review! We really appreciate it! It was a lot of fun spending the day with you guys and I really admire you for still having enough energy to see the turtles in the evening after the early beginning of the day! I must say that the good vibe during this fun excursion gave me enough strenght to dance until the early morning on the birthday party we went that evening hahaha! Again thank you so much for your kind words and we hope to see you again! Lots of love Angelina and Patrick

I decided to visit Around Sri Lanka tours to see what they could offer for me as a solo traveller to visit some highlights of the island.
To my surprise Angelina immediately took her time to sit down with me, talk me through the possibilities and she had a lot of attention to my preferences.
She composed a totally personalised tour especially for me and it was amazing!
I had a fantastic time with a great driver and saw the most incredible things which I would have never found by myself... thank you so much Angelina, I will definitely be back and recommend your tours!

Lots of love

Mallo

The tours are arranged by one of the most sympathetic girls I´ve ever met - Angelina. She arranged for us good and safe drivers, helped us to choose the program and gave us every advice we needed. We have many unforgettable experience thanks to her :) I highly recommend turtle watching on Rakawa beach and local market, that´s really worth it ;)

great driver Danushka , he showed us a lot and explained everything, answered all our (some annoying) questions. Great daytrip towards Uda Walawe , and afterwards to Ella , where he dropped us to our next hotel (great service from Around Sri Lanka!) we left our guesthouse in Tangalle and could leave all our luggage in the van (Danushka guarded it with his life ;-) )while we did a great organised safari in Uda Walawe , a perfect comfortable jeep and experienced guide , we saw many elephants ! After our safari we went for a lunch at a local place with tasty food , good work from our driver/guide and in Ella we took a swim in the waterfall (Danushka watched again over our luggage ;-) ) and after our wet adventure he brought us safe at our hotel in Ella , recommended by Around Sri Lanka , and indeed a beautiful place, if you ever go down south you must stop here for a trip ! We recommended it to everyone who travels to Sri Lanka

Found this company on website, I am a fussy traveller and got this one right! I have never seen any tour operator like Angelina who worked tirelessly by ensuring that we get full satisfaction and she did it! We spent 12 days starting a tour around Colombo for the day - I would recommend three days, Pinnawela elephant orphanage - not to be missed! you'll be able to witness elephants roaming (guided) on the field, bathing in the river and walking through the village, ride, and bathe the elephants. It was a sheer experience! Climbed up the little Adam's peak, easy to walk up (I'm 67) and at the top is where the view is extraordinary, and then followed a short bathe at Ravana waterfalls where there are monkeys roaming with beautiful wildlife insects, next was taking a comfortable jeep ride at Udawalawe nature reserve where there was abundant elephant roaming with beautiful birds flying and resting on the branches. It was a perfect safari trip! Went fishing offshore from Tangalle, caught a couple by line - no rods! Then took a tour to Bundala jeep safari similar to Udawalare with plenty of monkeys and birds about. Spent a day at Galle - worth a visit. Spent few hours at the wild beach at Kiranda - great spot for swimming and jumping from a large rock, no one around, so peaceful and picturesque and went to Yala safari where we spotted Leopard but easily get gridlocked with the other jeeps - so be prepared for that! Also spent a few hours at the tea plantation - don't skip this trip! The journey through the hill country is not to be avoided so that you'll have the chance to see the picturesque mountainous landscapes and have your camera ready all the time! There a 'million' zig zags across the mountain and our driver / guide Dilshan was great and was with us for the whole trip! so having said that, I have given this tour company 'Around Sri Lanka' a rating of 10 out of 10! The value of money for five adults were just about right.

I booked an afternoon trip to Mulkirigala on location in Tangalle. Angelina and Patrick were very helpful and not the least bit pushy. We got a good driver who picked us up on time and spoke English fairly well. Unfortunately the local guide at Mulkirigala wasn't as skilled in English so it was hard to make him understand our questions.

Dear Mikael Thank you so much for your kind review! I am very sorry to hear the local guide at Mulkirigala did not speak enough English, it is a totally different experience when somebody can explain everything to you about the temple and its traditions. I have contacted them and told them about this problem, I hope they will hire some new guides! We hope you had a great time at our beautiful island and we hope to see you again! Kind regards Angelina and Patrick

Great daytrip organised by managent of Around Sri Lanka. Did a trip to Mulkirigala monestry with them and the driver showed up punctual at time (first time anyone was on time in sri lanka). The driver was very helpfull and even showed on the way back an goverment textile factory because he remembered that my hometown is a town with textile history (not touristic)
