    Exceptional travel experience with top-notch driver agency
    My recent trip organized by SLE Tours, Sampath and Kapugama was an absolute delight from start to finish. I cannot emphasize enough how impressed I am with the level of service, professionalism, and attention to detail. From the moment we booked our trip, the communication was superb. Sampath took the time to understand our preferences and interests and helped us tailor the itinerary to perfectly match our desires. Before deciding on SLE Tours, we also checked out other travel agencies. Sampath provided the cheapest and best offer and was quick to reply. Further on, we must also mention our chauffeur and tour guide Kapugama. 'Kapu' as we called him, is someone we would highly recommend. He is an experienced tour guide with deep cultural insight and knowledge of local attractions and hidden gems. He is a skilled and safe driver, as well as an enthusiastic tour guide. His knowledge of the destinations we visited made every journey between attractions an opportunity to learn something new. He was punctual, friendly, funny and went above and beyond to make sure our comfort and satisfaction were top priorities. This ensured that we got the most out of our trip. The vehicle provided was clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. Whether it was a short ride within the city or a longer journey between towns, we always felt safe and at ease. Our plans sometimes changed on the fly, and Kapu was always accommodating, adjusting the schedule to fit our wishes without any hesitation. He organized everything behind the scenes, for example, our jeep safari in Kumana, the elephant safari in Minneriya national park (Dambulla), and finding us and experienced tour guide for our trip to Sigriya. Thank you SLE Tours, Sampath and Kapu for making our journey truly unforgettable. Best, Håkon and Camilla

    Dinuka is the best
    Me and my brother travelled to Sri Lanka for 10 days in August 2023. Our first driver was Sampath. His car broke down the day after we arrived so he sent us another car with another driver and tour guide called Dinuka. Dinuka was an amazing driver and tour guide. Always on time, always smiling, very knowledgeable about what to see and all the history of the places we visited. He is an excellent driver, always made sure we were safe wherever we went. He made our whole trip really enjoyable and relaxed! We are so happy we got to meet him and spent 10 days in his company. Highly recommended! Sthuthi Dinuka!

    Excellent service, high responsibility, attention to detail
    I traveled with my wife and our 5 yo daughter Nika for 6 days around Sri Lanka locations. Shan was our driver. He was really professional, helpful and responsive which is something exceptional comparing to other island services. He knew everything, helped with advice on any topic. We drove on very different weather conditions but always felt safe and comfortable. Highly recommend the company! Thank you!

    Very Good Tour Service
    We visited Sri Lanka this week and covered about 1030 kms in 5 days with a family of 8 persons. Mr. Sampath of SLE tours was very fast in his responses and made arrangements for our Toyota Hiace Van across Sigiriya, Anuradhapura, Mirissa, Galle and Colombo. Mr. Ajith was our driver, a very nice person and provided a very good service for last 5 days. Always on time, courteous and friendly. Will use SLE tours again and also recommend them. Keep up the great service.

    Excellent experience
    Overall experience was very good. Shan was very cooperative and helpful person. He drove the car and was always on front foot for help. Later we understood he's an office executive, but he did not let us realise the same. Very proffessional of Shan

    A perfect experience
    We organised a minivan for a one week trip through SLE Tours. Communications with the company were very easy and all our questions were handled quickly and professionally. Our driver, Mr Ajith was so much more than just a chauffeur. He helped us pick the best places to stop for local food and sightseeing, while also providing a lot of interesting information, and of course being an excellent driver. We felt very safe in his care and thanks to him, our trip went very smoothly.

    Top notch service from SLE Tours
    The services offered by SLE Tours is really good. We were able to travel across the central to south western Sri Lanka with the van provided by SLE Tours. Our chauffeur Ajith Sir was really good and helpful. He suggested plenty of places that we could visit while travelling between locations and guided us correctly through our plans. We would recommend him and SLE Tours for anyone visiting Sri Lanka. Their services are excellent!

    Thanks to our driver Noel
    We have been to Sri lanka and rent a car and driver by SLE tours. We would like to let you know that we were very satisfied with our driver Noel and his car. He is a very good driver and pleasant to communicate with. Always on time and he gave us many nice photostops. He was also very flexibel in departure and arrival times. We had a beautiful and pleasant tour through Sri Lanka, partly because of Noel. Herman & Trudy Maria, the Netherlands

    Greatest time ever in Sri Lanka
    The whole trip was amazing. I made a plan beforehand, what I would like to see and do and I had the kindest and greatest driver ever Manjula, who made all my plans possible. He was always on time, even at 5:00 in the morning and spent the whole day with driving me around. He was also very knowledgable and helpful on the sights. He organised a safari trip and lot other things for me. If I could give 6 starts for him, I would, but only 5 stars are possible. ☺️ I can recommend the company to everybody who would like to spend the greatest time in Sri Lanka and ever. The contact with Sri Lanka Exclusive Tours before the trip was also excellent. Sampath was very responsive answered all my emails and questions immediately. I asked for a plug, because I wasn’t sure if mine would fit in every hotel and Manjula had it right at the pick-up at the airport. I cannot write anything negative. Go ah ad and book your trip with this company!!!

We had a brilliant experience with Sri Lanka Exclusive Tours. Sampath replied to our initial email within 24 hours and was quick to reply to any further queries we had. Our driver, Rohan, was incredible - he spoke fluent English and nothing was too much trouble. For example, when we asked to try an authentic Sri Lankan breakfast, he happily found us somewhere. He found us a place for authentic milk tea, and stopped off on the roadside to allow us to try King Coconuts. When we said we wanted to try jackfruit, he found a seller and asked her to show us both ripe (to eat fresh) and unripe (to eat in curry). He was such a gentleman and frankly we wish we had his personal email so we could thank him so much for his amazing service.

This isn't the cheapest way to get around Sri Lanka (and you should do the train at least once - it's tonnes of fun, efficient and clean in our experience), but we felt like we got so much more out of our trip because Rohan was our driver. It felt like a personal tour!

We asked for Rohan for all four of our journeys, but the company could only organise for him to do three out of four. The last driver we had was polite, friendly and efficient, though.

My best advice: ask for Rohan! He's the absolute best!

P.S. We actually did this trip in Nov 2016, but I just found my review which I had forgotten to post, so posting it now as Rohan deserves to know how much he made our trip - we still think of him often.

Contacted the company via email after reading the reviews. Mr. Sampath’s response was quick with all queries addressed.
Mr. Saman was waiting for us (family of 4 ) at arrival lounge. The first 2 things he did were, guide us to buy a local sim and some local currency. Then we sat in his well kept Toyota sedan and were on our way to Colombo. This was start of our 10 memorable day in SriLanka .
Mr. Saman was a gem .. A very respectful , courteous, considerate and thoughtful gentleman.
At the time of adios it felt as, family goodbyes.
Thank you SLE for your wonderful services.
Highly recommended.... affordable packages with no hidden charges ....

I got to know SLE Tours through a web search . Went thoroughly through client feed back . I sent a mail to info@sletours.com . I got a prompt response. The mail contained minute details of inclusions exclusions type of vehicle details of payment toll fees etc . Our experience with the agency was excellent .Mr Sampath of SLE Tours was prompt and responsive . We made contact only through exchange of mails . We hired a car from Colombo airport pick up to dropping back to Colombo. Hired from 7 Jan to 11 Jan 2020 . Mr Lanka was waiting at the airport with a placard displaying our name. Our driver Mr Lanka was polite, gentle and extremely disciplined. Extremely supportive . Thank you Mr Lanka for making our holiday experience at Sri Lanka amazing .I need to emphasize that our driver Mr Lanka would send the photo of the odometer reading at the start and end of each day . Awesome 👍. Keep up the good work. Thanks Mr Sampath and Mr Lanka. You made our holiday great
