Nadine, Shashi and the team have been fantastic to deal with, prompt and efficient. They put together an inspiring itinerary for us, but due to the pandemic we have not been able to travel. Cancelling our plans and processing our refund was also done with out a fuss. I cannot recommend Columbus Tours enough, and we are sincerely hoping that we can experience Sri Lanka with them in the future.

Lasantha was a fantastic guide, picking us up each morning and taking us to our next destination, or on days off recommending local places to visit. His knowledge of the wildlife and birds on safari was fantastic!! Very professional, organised and friendly company. Would definitely use again and recommend to all.

Guaranteed the best, personalised service in the Country. They are there for you from arrival at Colombo airport until final departure. We were visiting Sri Lanka from the 26th February. 2020 returning home on 23rd March 2020. The first 3 weeks or so were wonderful travelling around the Island in an air conditioned vehicle provided and were heading towards our second last hotel prior to leaving when the Company contacted us and suggested we travel directly to a hotel in Colombo instead as a Curfew was declared in the area we were travelling to. They organised the necessary cancellations and rebooked us into a hotel in Colombo to complete our stay of around 4 days. On the way to Colombo we were advised by them that Singapore airlines had cancelled all flights in and out of Colombo therefore leaving us stranded. However Columbus Tours took it on themselves to organise seats on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight leaving early 22nd March 2020. As we were struggling to come up with the costs of the tickets at that particular time they stepped in and actually paid for the tickets themselves to get us out of Sri Lanka. Not only did they look after us very well during the whole tour but to get us out this mess was just incredible. I highly recommend Columbus Tours to all those who hope to travel to Sri Lanka in the future. Thank you to Columbus Tours for everything. We have since reimbursed them for the costs incurred but are very appreciative of their immediate response to our needs.

I have just returned from a fabulous 3 week tour in Sri Lanka. The tour was designed to have a wide variety of activities. Ananda, Priyal and Ruwan were our guides and drivers. They were knowledgeable, professional, caring and friendly. They were great drivers and our mini buses were kept extremely clean. Each of the guides got to know each of the people in the buses and adapted some of the activities when requested. I feel very privileged to have been shown such a beautiful country by Ananda, Pryial and Ruwan, who seemed proud and delighted to share their country with us. Their prime objective was for us to have an amazing holiday. They achieved that objective. I highly recommend Columbus Tours. When I go back to Sri Lanka, I will definitely be contacting Columbus Tours.

My wife and I recently spent almost three weeks in Sri Lanka, most of that time being driven and guided by Roshan Dissanayake. He is a consistently knowledgeable, discreet and reassuring guide to a country which he loves very much. He is good company, takes control when necessary, but also knows when to be in the background. He smoothed over all the usual and unusual challenges which we faced, such as losing a credit card and suddenly wanting to take a train. We’ve had many guides around the world, but he would take a very high position among them. The same applies to his driving. We recommend him highly.
