About Sammy Tours
Hello! My name is Sammy and I've been running personalised tours around Sri Lanka for many years. Sammy Whether you require a half day visit to a city for one person, or week long itinerary for up to 16 people. I can organise everything for you at prices more competitive than travellers can achieve themselves. Travel is in my air-conditioned car or mini-bus and all prices quoted include all entrance fees and guides, use of my vehicle, driver and fuel. Please browse my website and contact me before you arrive to be sure of my availability and to plan a personal tour covering all the sites you want to see, not what your travel agent wants to show you. I am very flexible, so if you would like to stop for photos, just ask me!

We were picked by Kasun, we were seamlessly transferred to our accommodation for the night. Then next morning off on our 14 day trip. We covered Dambulla for 3 nights and all the things here were awesome especially the the safari with elephants. Then to Kandy for the Tooth Relic Temple. Then off to Yala for another safari saw lots of wildlife, elephants, leopards, birds dung beatle😂 Then to Bentota beach for a few nights which was so good after some busy days. What a great spot. All in all I would recommend Sammy 100% to use when(and please do) you go to Sri Lanka Special thanks to Kasun, a beautiful person who got us where we had to go safely and for his knowledge of the places we went.🙏🏾

We contacted Sammy before we left for our trip to book a couple of excursions. Because of the current situation we did need to cancel one of them, so this review is for the Village Tour by Tuk Tuk. Firstly communication was quick and easy and we provided a list of our must do's then leaving the rest to Sammy. On the day of our Tuk Tuk tour Sammy arrived on time and personally drove us. We spent an hour or so on the river with fresh pineapple and King coconut with Sammy and the boat driver spotting and pointing out the wildlife. We visited the village temple which was outstanding and I was surprised at the size of it. Sammy told us about the history and beliefs. Lunch was provided at Sammy's restaurant the Lunuganga Chillout Bistro, which became our fave place. I've done a separate review for that, but lunch was excellent and beer available. After lunch we visited a herb garden and a beautiful wood carving shop. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and I'm sure we would have enjoyed our second just as much. Rest assured we will return when it's possible and book Sammy again. Thank you Sammy, stay safe 🙏🙏

Sammy gave us a couple of options on what he thought would be a good tour based on our choices. We left the itinerary up to him using his experience. Nice easy pick up from the airport and tour finished in Galle as we had a few extra days there before flying home. The reason we booked with Sammy was that the reviews mentioned that he included all accommodation with breakfast and dinner included, as was all entrance tickets. The hotels varied, most were good, some excellent. We had a wide range of different experiences which included Temples, Safari's, National Parks, Whale watching and Botanical Gardens as well as seeing the way of life whilst travelling around. Chinta, our driver/guide, made this whole trip exceptional. He became a firm friend and was reliable and would go out of his way to show us things on route on our journey. Thank you Sammy for a fantastic trip of your beautiful country. Would recommend Sammy Tours to family and friends as well as anyone else thinking of doing a tour of Sri Lanka.

We returned for our second visit to Sri Lanka and used Sammy tours again. As before Sammy was prompt to reply, tailored our trip to the places we wanted to visit and ensured we had a wonderful stay. We had Chinta as our driver (at our request from last time), who is a safe driver, friendly, shared local information and was amazing. Would highly recommend Sammy tours, as they provide a high quality service, select good guesthouses /hotels, listen to what you want from the holiday and will ensure you visit all the main sights. Thank you again Sammy and Chinta

We drove from Bentota to Galle with a Sammy Tours driver. It was among our best driver experiences in Sri Lanka. The driver spoke very good english. Along the journey he provided us with background on the surroundings and Sri Lanka in general - always in a subtle friendly and never an annoying way. Most of all we felt very safe, as unlike other drivers he didn't go for unnecessarily risky manoevres. The highlight was when we asked him to stop at a ratan furniture shop and he helped us communicate with the shop owners. Unfortunately we didnt have time to visit Yala national park, but we would for sure have done it with Sammy Tours. See you next time.
