It was truly an amazing experience for two young travelers (myself and my friend). My concern on our safety was well taken care by Sammy. He was accommodative with my requirements and budget when I was planning on my itinerary which took almost 8 months. It was a 10 days trip and I never felt more satisfied and happy being... More

He was very accommodating when booking our trip and flexible in the tour he arranged for us when we told him the places we would like to visit. From Day 1 the service we received was excellent and our tour guide, Chintha was so friendly, knowledgeable, professional and... More

We were booked for 14 nights to stay at centara ceysands. In the travelling party, there was myself, my 11 year old son and my best friend. We had booked through Hayes and Jarvis but found their transfer and your prices quite expensive. We also wanted a private tour so we could things at our own leisure. After some research,... More

Sammy provided a cheerful guide and skilful driver for our tour of the southwest and hill country. We were greeted at the airport and taken to our first overnight by the beach at Negumbo. Next day we drove to Dambulla and were seeing the Cave Temples before nightfall. Thilanka Spa Hotel was stunning and modern. We visited ruined ancient cities... More

Firstly, I just wanted to mention that Chinta has been a wonderful guide. He looked after us very well and had many stories to tell on every location. He is kind, polite, organised and very knowledgeable. I could not have wished better. He is a great asset to your company, a great professional and a wonderful man that made every... More

Sammy Tours were brilliant. Nine days of of touring and 5 days by the beach. Our guide Chintha was great - very friendly, reliable, trustworthy and extremely helpful. The air-conditioned mini bus was comfortable and the tour was packed with different visits. It was busy with events on each day - you will not be disappointed. The hotel for the... More

My wife and I arrived in Sri Lanka for our first visit there, a little anxious because we'd taken a leap of faith and booked a week's worth of activities with someone we knew nothing about, based on nothing but the strength of his TripAdvisor ratings. Fortunately that worked well for us. Sula, one of Sammy's drivers, met us at... More
