As most of us around the world are under ‘stay at home’ orders, it has created time for gratitude and reflection on the beautiful world we now miss so much. Last year, we traveled to Sri Lanka and spent 10 days with Dilhan Suraweera and Dilhan’s Awesome Adventures. We visited every major place of interest as well as many places on many roads less traveled. The experience we had in Sri Lanka was life changing. We came home different people. The locals are warm and gracious. The food is some of the best I’ve ever had. The accommodations where we stayed were clean and authentic, and more importantly, run by proud owners who wanted your happiness more than anything in the world. We were treated like Royalty and Family at the same time. My husband and I have been world travelers for almost 25 years and this was our favorite trip. We want to go back. SOON. Please do not let this terrible virus make you afraid to travel to places far away. Take precautions naturally, but go! Life is short. At the end of the line, you will only regret the things you didn’t do. If you go to Sri Lanka, I cannot recommend Dilhan Suraweera and his organization highly enough. They were fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful memory!

We had a day in Columbo as a stop on our cruise and Dilhan really helped us make the most of it! He showed us all the main sights and was very knowledgable, and friendly. We really enjoyed our visit to temples, markets and parks as well as an authentic curry lunch, and tuk-tuk ride. Highly recommended

What a great guy and what a fantastic holiday he gave us! My husband and I went to Sri Lanka with another couple for 2 weeks. From start to finish Dilhan looked after us without being intrusive. Showing us around his beautiful country he went out of his way to make the experience an absolute joy. He booked our hotels, organised guides, gave us advise on what to do and what see. He even arranged for my kindle to be sent back to the UK after leaving it in a hotel! We came away feeling we had seen the ‘real’ side of Sri Lanka.

My friend and I arranged a day tour with Dilhan. He gave us a real feel for Columbo, we visited a market, some temples and had an authentic Sri Lankan curry lunch . Dilhan accommodated our wish to purchase spices and tea and to experience a short tuk tuk drive as well as a short train trip . He is a knowledgeable guide and explained the Buddhist temple to us and purchased flowers for us to leave as an offering. Dilhan is very organized and pick up and drop off from out cruise ship was easy. I highly recommend and adventure with Dilhan.

This was my first trip to Sri Lanka, and I couldn't be happier have had the Awesome Adventure with Dilhan! Dilhan helped me plan my itinerary pre-trip, and suggested places based on my preferences. He was flexible, accommodating, knowledgeable and gave good advice and tips. He is well connected with people across the country, and can tell you which activities and sites are tourist traps and which ones are worth seeing. On the road, Dilhan is a very careful and safe driver. He gauges the road conditions well and gives realistic trip duration estimates. I highly recommend exploring Sri Lanka with Dilhan's Awesome Adventures! Tip: Bring hat and sunscreen. Sri Lanka is a hot and humid tropical country and I didn't see many places selling sunscreen.
