My family and I travelled with Red Dot tours in December 2019 to Sri Lanka and had the most amazing holiday. Everything was extremely well planned and our driver/guide was exceptional. Sri Lanka is one of the most wonderful countries in the world and Red Dot tours made our stay memorable in every way.

Went to Sri Lanka at end-January 2020, just before Pandemic closed down the world. So glad we made it on this one last overseas trip! Never even ventured to that area of the world before, and Sti Lanka blew us away. Its beauty, its history, its friendliness - wow. And so, so, so glad we chose to do it with Red Dot. On strength of reviews, thought I'd give them a shot: the brief - design a 6 day tour to totally impress a family of four, including cynical 14 and 16 year olds, all of us basically having no prior knowledge about Sri Lanka. Lahiru of Red Dot was super attentive all through the planning. Making great suggestions of itinerary, accommodating my every query, and importantly - being truthful and realistic with me when I started getting carried away and trying to pack too much in. There is, it turns out, SOOOO much to do and see in Sri Lanka that 6 days is indescribably too little time to scratch the surface. Once we landed, we were met by our driver/tour guide, Sisira. He patiently drove and taught us for the whole 6 days, and there wasn't a thing about Sri Lanka that he didn't know! We visited the amazing Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the ancient ruins of Polonnaruwa, gorgeous white sands of Bentota, and stayed in lovely hotels and ate great food. We marveled at the fascinating history and disbelieved the sheer scale of the ancient reservoirs (locally known as 'tanks') which olden kings had built to irrigate this beautiful country. And did you know Sri Lanka generates ~70% of its energy from renewable sources? We do (now)! Sisira/Red Dot were even able to accommodate our last minute on-the-road changes in itinerary – sudden bright idea to jam in a Dawn Hot Air Balloon? Done. I’m out of superlatives. I read that Sri Lanka has been well in control of the Pandemic; they haven’t had a case since April 2020, and are re-opening the country to tourism from August 2020. Go visit, and go do it with Red Dot.

Thank you so much for your wonderful, and detailed, review Dennis W! We are truly grateful and humbled by all the wonderful things you have to say about us and our team, thank you! We will be sure to share your feedback with the team. We are so pleased that you were able to really enjoy your last overseas trip prior to the pandemic and that Sri Lanka really blew you away - you are very right, 6 days is not enough to enjoy all that Sri Lanka has to offer. We look forward to helping you design your next trip to our paradise island. You are correct, Sri Lanka has been very proactive in controlling the spread of the pandemic and we at Red Dot have already put in place our Health and Safety procedures which we will be executing on all future tours, so travellers continue to be comfortable and feel safe when travelling with us. Thank you so much for being an incredible ambassador for Sri Lanka and Red Dot and we can't wait to welcome you back soon. Warm regards, the Red Dot team.

We travelled with Red Dot tours in December 2019 to Sri Lanka and had an amazing holiday which was well planned. The tour consultant was very efficient and helpful and our itinerary was tailored according to our places of interest. The chauffeur had a great knowledge on the sites and was very helpful throughout our trip. Looking forward to travel through you again

We would like to thank Lahiru and your organisation for our wonderful trip to your country recently. Every aspect of the itinerary organised by Lahiru was fabulous. From the moment we were met at the airport to when we were returned there. Prasanna was a great driver and “tour guide” and very helpful in every way. All the accomodation without exception was also fabulous. The overview of your country and experiences we had couldn’t be better. We hope this new disruption of the Covid 19 to tourism won’t last to long. Again many thanks to everyone involved in making it very special. Pauline & Richard

Our initial and subsequent contacts with Red Dot Tours were receptive and efficient. We wanted to plan our own itinerary but use the services of a driver for most of our trip around Sri Lanka. Red Dot were the only company that we approached who clearly understood our requirements and offered a straightforward contract at a reasonable price. The driver provided was always smart, polite and willing to be helpful but most importantly for us was an extremely safe, skillful and experienced driver. His English was adequate but occasionally led to misunderstandings. Nevertheless we would definitely recommend Red Dot Tours on the basis of our experience. They certainly helped us to have a great holiday in this lovely country.
