Sammy Tours were brilliant. Nine days of of touring and 5 days by the beach. Our guide Chintha was great - very friendly, reliable, trustworthy and extremely helpful. The air-conditioned mini bus was comfortable and the tour was packed with different visits. It was busy with events on each day - you will not be disappointed. The hotel for the... More

My wife and I arrived in Sri Lanka for our first visit there, a little anxious because we'd taken a leap of faith and booked a week's worth of activities with someone we knew nothing about, based on nothing but the strength of his TripAdvisor ratings. Fortunately that worked well for us. Sula, one of Sammy's drivers, met us at... More

We booked a 9 day tour followed by 5 days in a beachside hotel with Sammy Tours for ourselves and our friends (i.e. two mature couples). We left all the details of the tour to Sammy, he came up with an itinerary and suggested all the hotels which we agreed before confirming the booking. The tour that Sammy arranged was... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 13 day tour of Sri Lanka provided by Sammy Tours. The tour itself was put together by ourselves but followed a fairly typical route around the country. We provided Sammy with the basic hotel requirements and the locations we wanted to visit and he made all the arrangements for us. Our tour took... More

Sammy Tours is a good local travel agency. We went a small group, 9 persons from Romania and we had 10 days tour in Dec 2015-January 2016. Mr Saman (Sammy), the owner organized a nice program for us, he booked clean and cozy accommodation in our budget, he provided a completely new and confortable minibus and the best driver we...

Sammy, a guy in his mid thirties runs this small tour company. Communication with him was relatively smooth despite the fact that his English speaking skills need some improvement and sometimes it took him what seemed like ages for an email response. Nevertheless with a 200 US dollar deposit we booked with him and never got to regret our choice... More

Sammy and his driver were wonderful. They were there waiting as soon as our plane landed in Kandy and were extremely helpful in taking us to and from our hotel. They were able to provide a customized tours based on our family's needs (always tricky with kids). They drove our luggage from Kandy to Hatton while we took a scenic... More

We arrived in Colombo on 18 December and were picked up by the guide Nishante and the driver Silanga. We had the best time, touring around the beautiful Sri Lanka. Nishante was a fantastic guide. He went out of his way to help us with everything. There is no mistaking the pride and love he feels for his country. Further... More

This man and his company is a complete scam. 7 night tour costing $2,000 per person was a complete waste of money. Would have been better with a taxi and booking own hotels. Sub standard accomodation, worst rooms in hotels on tour, some unsafe for single lady. Only attractions visited were free, but pressured to buy ... Ie spice garden,... More
