We visited Sri Lanka in January 2020. It was our first time there, and we LOVED it. Travel Design helped us plan our itinerary including accommodation and sightseeing and it all worked seamlessly. We travelled around with our own (fabulous) driver he was amazing with our kids and really helped to make our holiday enjoyable for all. I would highly recommend Travel Design.

Travel Design put together a fantastic itinerary for our 10 day trip to Sri Lanka which was awesome. They included everything and every place we wanted to see in a manageable timeframe without being too rushed. The accommodation they chose for us was outstanding. Any minor issues we had (and there was only one), the team at Travel Design sorted it out for us, efficiently and effectively. The team, led by Daham, was a pleasure to deal with and responsive to everything we asked for. Our driver, Nirash, was a very careful and knowledgeable driver (and the roads can be hazardous - especially the public buses who wait for NO-ONE) who was always there when he said he would be. He also had a very lovely, friendly disposition. All in all, we would very highly recommend this company.

The four of us enjoyed our own vehicle and driver/guide. The itinerary was varied and just at the right pace, allowing us time for adventure, sightseeing and enjoying the lovey hotel facilities. It is difficult to choose the highlights but certainly the safaris at Yala and Viharagama were standouts, along with our stay at the 98 Acre Resort, Ella. We finished off with three gorgeous days at the beautiful Sri Sharavi Beach Villas at Mirissa. Our driver Indika was just wonderful - informative and nothing was too much trouble for him, andthe vehicle clean and comfortable. Sri Lanka provided so much variety from lush vegitation to cool climate mountains and glorious beaches. The wildlife too was fascinating. We saw elephants, wild boar, buffalos and even a leopard. Not to mention the birdlife, including many many peacocks. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend both Sri Lanka and Travel Design by CDC to all.

We visited Sri Lanka as a couple in October 2019. We wanted to find a tour company that would arrange a trip around the main sights of the country for us, rather than trying to hire a car and book hotels ourselves. After looking at itineraries and quotes from four companies, we settled on using Travel Design by CDC. They were very competitively priced and were most efficient and timely in communicating with us. Our travel consultant - Daham Rajasekara - was fantastic and changed our itinerary around and gave us multiple options at our every request. All our multiple questions were answered quickly and in a very helpful and friendly manner, so the customer service was excellent! This included calling us several times after we arrived in Sri Lanka and during our tour, to ensure that everything was going well and we were happy. Daham organized and booked a fabulous trip for us including a driver/tour guide to take us around the sights that we wanted to see, and the hotels we wanted to stay in at the various locations. We were picked up from Negombo and then made a 12 day trip including Anuradaphura, Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella, Yala and finally dropped off in Mirissa for some beach relaxation. Special mention must be made of our exceptional driver, Sujee. He really made the holiday for us as he was so considerate, friendly and an excellent tour guide with extensive knowledge of our destinations, and who was also a mine of information about Sri Lanka in general. He really went above and beyond to help make our trip memorable, and no request was too small for him. Sujee was a brilliant tour guide and had extensive knowledge about all the historic sites that we visited. There is no need to pay extra for a site guide. Our car was immaculately clean and well presented, with very good air conditioning which is essential on the long hot travel days! Sujee gave us comfortable pillows in case we needed a nap on the longer drives, gave us sweets, and also stopped for fresh fruit and special street food treats which were all delicious!! We were sad to say goodbye when our driving tour finally ended after 12 fantastic days in this beautiful country. We can thoroughly recommend Travel Design by CDC to anyone considering an organized tour of Sri Lanka. They are a great company to deal with and will provide an easy, stress free way of touring through the gorgeous countryside and visiting all the historic sites.

7 ladies on a 3 week trip around Sri Lanka and with the help of Travel Design and a special mention to Mr Daham Rajasekara who was so efficient, obliging and helpful in organising this incredible trip. We stayed, visited many places of interest, ate some amazing food and travelled from the southern tip of Sri Lanka from Galle to Unuwatuna and Mirissa for some amazing surf beaches through the centre to Yala national park on a safari then up to Ella, a picturesque little town with lots of restaurants and cafes and plenty to do. We climbed Little Adams Peak and came down via the flying fox, spectacular scenery so green and lush, we visited the famous 9 arches bridge built by the British, so beautiful and took a train up into the high country Nuwara Eliya or little England for a tour of a tea estate and witnessed the process of what goes on before you enjoy your cup of tea. We then went across to the east coast for few days of relaxing on the most beautiful beach, white sands, gentle waves before we explored the cultural and ancient historical sights climbing the huge monolith Sigiriya, a definite must and visited ancient palaces and temples over 5000 years old. Then across to the west coast of Sri Lanka another beachside area known for its seafood, fresh prawns and crabs just caught and cooked before we spent the last couple of days in the busy metropolis that is Colombo for Shopping and fantastic hotels old and new, the Galle face hotel where many many famous names have stayed royalty, film stars and musicians and me. Not to be missed is the restaurant owned by 2 Sri Lankan cricketers and a super chef, The ministry of crab, AHMAAAZING. This was situated at the old Dutch hospital which was occupied during the war. Sri Lanka you delivered in spades and with the help of Travel Design who made it easy, we had no hang ups or hassles at all for a superb enjoyable 3 week vacation.
