We found Sammy Tours via tripadvisor. Some of the hotels Sammy suggested we didn't like but it was no problem that we made the reservations for those ourselves. Our driver Gajante was a very nice guy and safe driver. Just his English and German was rather rudimentary, for normal communication it worked fine, but further questions about Sri Lankan history...

Choose Sammy if you want to experience Sri Lanka with a tour which is totally personalised, brilliantly organised, run by local people and about half the price of an equivalent from a big tour operator. Sammy used to work as a driver for the big companies, so he knows the country and and all the 'must see' locations inside out.... More

Ok, so my Wife did the research and made the booking with Sammy Tours and I had little idea of what to expect. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with a fascinating history and we wanted to see as much of it as we could in the time that we had. Sammy built us a fantastic, personal itinerary and booked... More

I have just returned from a fantastic tour organised by Sammy Tours and would strongly advise anyone going to Siri Lanka to use this company. Sammy was extremely efficient and organised and our tour included everything, entrance admissions, meals, hotels, car driver/guide, safaris, in fact everything except lunch. The price was extremely reasonable, and it is clear that Sammy is... More

We travelled to Sri Lanka with our 3 year old daughter for 13 days in November 2016. We chose Sammy based on internet reviews and on the fact that he was replying very promptly.The price that was given was reasonable ( bear in mind Sri Lanka is expensive) and included everything apart from lunch i.e. lodging, half board, entrances, safaris...

My wife and I were planning our holiday to Sri Lanka over 18th - 30th December 2016 for 13 days and found Sammy Tours on google. Email response was quick and Sammy was great to arrange an itinerary for us on such a short notice. Package was well priced (we had 2 other quotes to compare with) and included private... More

We booked the tour on the web, without knowing how god or bad everything would be. To be honest, Nisha and Adid did a great job, always taking care of us, knowing when and what makes sense to visit in order to experience at max the local culture. Adid is our hero in driving the Toyota minivan on such busy... More

What a holiday!!! We were lucky enough to be in Sri Lanka 14th to the 29th November 2016. Sammy delivered from the beginning. We were picked up at 2am and taken to our hotel which was family run, unfortunately, we had to get them out of bed. All information given by Sammy was spot on. We were lucky enough to... More

This was a very special holiday for us as it was our Silver wedding anniversary, my 50th birthday and our son's 18th Birthday celebrations. We were received at the airport by Chintaka, our guide, and the adventure of a lifetime began. We wanted to see as much of the country as we could in the 15 days we were there... More
