My wife and I had 10 amazing days in Sri Lanka at the beginning of March just before everything worldwide was shutdown due to the virus, all supported by the splendid itinerary from Sharon and our great driver Chin. I always wanted to go to Sri Lanka and I regret that I didn’t go sooner. Our driver Chin was extremely supportive - waking up at 4:30 am if needed before a game drive, driving all day in between destinations without a complaint, recommending best places to eat or activities to do. If you wanted to chat all day, Chin can be very talkative. If you needed some chill time after a long hike, he’s comfortable with that too. When we go back to Sri Lanka within the next few years, we will certainly use Genuine Sri Lankans tours. It can be as budget, mid-tier, or expensive as you like. Very flexible but they’ll have plenty of recommendations if needed. And we will definitely want to drive with Chin again. Very reliable, very responsible, very nice young man.

Ayubowan At the turn of february and march me and my family took a 3 week journey through Paradise. Sri Lanka is a country where nature still wins with Man and breaks in everywhere. I couldn't imagine that there are so many shades of green. Me and my wife love to travel a lot and we can say that we have some experience in travelling with backpacks through interesting parts of Asia. We always plan the trip very carefully because we dont want to miss any interesting places. This trip was supposed to be a little bit different because our 8-month child was traveling with us this time. We wanted to drive throught the entire island in a short period of time so we decided to use a different type of transport than buses and trains We decided that the best solution would be traveling by car with a certified guide. Because of the good internet reviews we decided to choose "Genuine Sri Lankans" That's how we met our guide named Buddhika. A man with a thousand connections. Sometimes when our rout suddenly changed we used Buddhika contact to look for accommodation and other attractions. Roads in Sri Lanka do not resemble those in Europe. There are different driving rules here:) From the first days we felt safe because our guide turned out to be a very good driver. Almost every day we visited a different parts of the island. Sometimes we stayed for a few days in more interesting places and Buddhika, despite his day off, showed us beautiful places which could not be found in guidebooks. Buddhika, thanks to his good knowledge of Sri lanka, made our culinary dreams come true. We won't forget delicious food in the open air at rice fields :) Because of my curiosity, I always ask a lot of questions and Buddhika always knew the answers. His knowledge of Sri Lanka is huge. He is like walking Wikipedia It was our best trip so far. Despite the fact that we saw a large part of Sri Lanka we will definitely come back to this beautiful green island once more. I highly recommend visiting Sri Lanka with "Genuine Sri Lankans" and be sure to do it with BUDDHIKA!!

몰디브에서 다이빙후 방문예정이라 다이빙장비 때문에 짐이 많기도 했고, 일정도 좀 빠듯하고, 코로나바이러스 때문에 붐비는 열차 2등석 타기가 꺼려져서(비록 스리랑카 도착했을땐 이미 2주 잠복기가 지났을 때긴 했지만 다른 사람들도 동양인이라는 이유로 우리를 꺼릴 것 같고해서...) 개인차량을 이용하기로 했어요. 여기를 포함해서 세군데 컨텍해서 견적을 받았는데 여기가 가장 저렴하기도 했고, 숙소 불포함이라서 우리가 원하는곳으로 정할 수 있고, 평도 괜찮은 것 같아 이용하게 되었습니다. (답변속도는 아주 빠르지는 않았어요.) 7박8일동안 기사포함 차량렌트를 했고 콜롬보공항-아누라다푸라-시기리야 - 누와라엘리야- 엘라- 갈레 발라피티야를 거쳐 콜롬보일정으로 다녀왔어요. 우리한테 배정된 기사는 '수다라'였는데 정말 밝고 친절하고 설명도 잘해주고 영어도 잘하고 좋은분이었어요. 코로나때문에 고민되어서 취소할지말지 망설이느라 숙소도 미리 예약 못하고 지식도 별로 없이 갔는데 많은 도움을 받았고, 일정을 조금 바꿔도 항상 흔쾌히 ok해줘서 마음 가볍게 여행을 마칠 수 있었습니다. 역사나 유적설명도 해주어서 좋았어요. 글구 엘라에서 숙소요금도 직접 컨텍해서 조금 깎아줬어요~ 엘라에서 숙소들어가는 길이 좁고 험했는데 운전도 잘했구요. 즉석으로 남는시간에 할 수 있는 투어(사파리, 쿠킹클래스, 보트투어)같은것도 예약해줘서 짧은시간에 알차게 여행할 수 있었어요. 돌아오는 항공편이(대한항공 직항) 코로나땜에 취소되어서ㅠㅠ 경유항공편으로 변경되어 귀국일정이 6시간정도 늦춰졌는데 싫은 기색없이 끝까지 잘해줘서 고마웠어요. 스리랑카 처음이었는데 너무 좋았구요, 코로나 잠잠해지면 또 가고싶고, 그때도 sudara 랑 같이 하고싶어요. Sudara, We really had an awesome holiday thanks to you. Take care. We hope to see you next time again.

This was the 2nd time we have used Genuine Sri Lankans, we booked with them last year for 5 days and were delighted with the service so this year booked with them again for 7 days and they did not disappoint!. From the initial contact with Sharon in the office who is super efficient and quick to respond to meeting our driver Koshala on day one. Koshala is extremely polite, kind and has an incredible knowledge of his country. He explained everything to us in such an interesting way. He was our guide at all the places we visited, Sigiriya Rock, Adams Peak, 9 Arch Bridge to name just a few. He arranged an excellent safari for us, and tickets for a train journey from Nuwara Eliya to Ella, ensuring that we were safely on board before driving to Ella to meet us there. He explained so much about the country. When we decided to change our itinerary and drive down to Tangalle a day early he was so accommodating. The car was clean and comfortable and Koshala is a very safe driver, we felt very comfortable with him. I cannot recommend Koshala and Genuine Sri Lankans highly enough. Book your tour with them, you won’t be disappointed!

I booked a 8 days tour recently(February 2020)with Genuine Sri Lankans. Being a solo female traveler and first timer in Sri Lanka, I was initially very nervous to get a driver/guide, however it was definitely the best decision I have made and that to with Genune Sri Lankans which I never regretted! Planning the entire tour was relatively easy with Sharon being very responsive and providing all the details as required promptly. With just the route that I provided, she gave me a suggested itinerary and accommodation list that I could customize on my own based on my preference. I preferred to book the accommodation myself and that was totally fine with them too. Great communication and planning from the admin that gave assurance & confidence on this tour company. Thanks Sharon! My driver/guide who I would rather call a friend now was Chinthaka!! He had a great knowledge on the history, ancient stories, culture and all the places and was always ready to teach me about it. Chin provided great recommendations throughout and very accommodating to my requests. He also had a great sense of humor that always kept me laughing throughout the journey. Being quite chatty myself and the eagerness to learn more about Sri Lanka, I always had a question for him and he always had a answer to it. We talked about almost everything under the sun and exchanged some good knowledge throughout the journey. Most of all, I never felt like I was traveling alone with such a great company! Chin drove very safely & politely and he didn't need a GPS to drive around! What impressed me the most was the priority on the safety & satisfaction of customer above and beyond everything else. On our way from Mirissa to Ella, the car had a flat tyre and with the help some kind locals, Chin managed to replace the tyre within minutes and the car was in good condition. However, to ensure safety and not to disappoint the customer, after dropping me off at Ella, Chin actually drove 6 hours (3 hours each way) to exchange the car from another driver from the company and was up early in the morning on time for a sunrise hike! I had no idea about this till the next morning and I was blown away with the level of responsibility and commitment they had to provide the best service to their customer. I have traveled solo to many countries before but this trip to Sri Lanka was truly special with a friend like Chin. His ever smiling face, politeness and kindness at such a young age will bring him places for sure. Thanks to you Chin and this extremely positive first impression of Sri Lanka, I will definitely plan another trip to Sri Lanka soon! Thank you Chin & Genuine Sri Lankans for such a memorable trip! I definitely came as guest and going back as a friend. Much love from Malaysia!
