We had an amazing time in the beautiful country of Sri Lanka. Shermith and Paul organized the schedule of the various activities and trips we went on, the great restaurants we ate at and much more! Paul drove a lot and he always had wet towels, fruits, napkins, and cold water for us in the car. The car was a comfortable van and had good portable Wi-fi inside. So, even though we needed to stay hours in the car sometimes, we had good connection and my teens didn’t feel bored during the long trips. The highlight of the one-week trip was the Yala National Park, which is where we went on an incredible safari. Throughout the safari we spotted a total of 4 leopards and many other animals! Another place that we loved was Sigiriya. It was a perfect trip with our teenagers. Paul not only choose the best attractions for our family, but he was also very flexible with regards to changing plans, whether we wanted to do something different or add more places to go. Moreover, Paul was extremely kind, and in the end of the trip, he gave us a beautiful gift from Sri Lanka that we will keep forever.

We were two families travelling around Sri Lanka. We did not book a driver before we arrived, but were lucky to get in contact with a fantastic driver, called Paul. He helped us organising daytrips, some places to stay, restaurants to have lunch and so on. He had a great knowledge about local attractions and were very good at english. We liked his calmness both as a driver and as a person. He were also very good at giving the kids some unique experiences for instance toys made of coconut leaves. We are very very thankful and can only give him our highest recommendations.

Sri Lanka is easily the most beautiful country I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. I owe my incredible experience to Ceylon Insider Tours. What began as a two week tour turned into nearly four weeks alongside our guide Shermith. Without his guidance and expertise we would have missed so much of this spectacular country. Prior to arriving, Shermith helped tailor a custom itinerary to our interests and budget. Even before arriving we knew he was extremely organized and professional. We were greeted promptly at the airport and welcomed with beautiful flower garlands and bottles of cold water. His car was always spotless with air conditioning ready. We were also spoiled with wifi in the car during our entire trip. Over the course of our trip Shermith brought us to many must see tourist spots as well as local treasures. Each day was meticulously planned, down to hot curry lunches in the middle of a safari! Many sights we visited also included a local guide who specialized in the area or history of the sight. There wasn’t a single place we visited that didn’t amaze and wow us. Shermith isn’t like most guides, you won’t find anyone who cares more about your experience on holiday than him. He goes above and beyond every single day. He also has a passion for photography and will capture amazing keepsakes for you to enjoy after your trip! I can’t wait to return to this part of the world! I will without a doubt be contacting Ceylon Insiders when I do. Thank you, Shermith for all the incredible memories and laughs!

Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited, and Ceylon Insider Travels was the best tour company I have ever travelled with. The service from start to finish far exceeded my expectations; and was excellent value for money. Our tour guide, Shermith, created a personalised package that included organising our hotels and excursions, recommending excellent restaurants, sourcing interesting and friendly local guides and much much much more. He took a lot of time before we arrived to find out the kinds of things we wanted to see and do, and this was reflected in the activities and sites we explored. Shermith is a fantastic driver, and made us feel incredibly safe and comfortable in his car. The activities planned for us were of a very high quality and extremely interesting and varied. Shermith proved to be very knowledgeable (and patient) when answering my many many questions about the places we visited! At the end of the trip, Shermith shared photographs he had taken during our two week tour- they were fantastic and captured so many highlights of our amazing trip. It was such a unique touch to a great holiday. I honestly cannot recommend Ceylon Insider Travels more 😀

We did two full day tours with tour guide Vijay, one day to Sigiriya and one to Galle. Vijay is absolutely lovely and really knowledgeable. The tours were fantastic, the highlights were the elephant safari in Sigiriya and the turtle hatchery on Galle. I think there were the best day tours we have ever taken and we did not go to lots of places where you are pressured to buy things which is great.
