We visited Sri Lanka for two weeks to celebrate our honeymoon, organising our holiday and tour guide with Sarath. From the beginning, Sarath was friendly, communicative, and helped us put together an itinerary. As Sarah was unavailable to take us around the island himself, he organised for one of his colleagues, Jaya, to be our guide. We were extremely impressed with the service provided by Jaya throughout our trip.

Jaya has an intimate knowledge of the country, providing clear and detailed explanations of historical sites, alongside an excellent understanding of the country’s fauna, flora and geography. Whilst driving, he would regularly point out things of interest which would be easily missed. The car was always clean and he spoke excellent English. Overall, we always felt in safe hands, and know that our time in Sri Lanka was greatly enhanced by his presence.

We thoroughly recommend contacting Sarath to organise your trip, and will certainly be recommending him to our friends and family.

We used the service for a 10 day trip in Sri Lanka. We have customised our own trip and Jaya was our trusted guide for the entirety of our journey. He was very safe, always empathetic to our needs and always on time. We were met at the airport by Sarath who welcomed us and helped us getting started. They were very responsive and helpful prior to reaching Colombo.
Jaya us very knowledgeable and would research things to do and things we may have spotted so that we always have a good time and are well informed.

Jaya was very patient and always enthusiastic to take us places. The car was always kept clean and he was a careful driver especially when we drove through bad weather and at night.
We really enjoyed our trip in Sri Lanka and would definitely use this service if we return to the country again. Highly recommended!

My wife and I just completed an 8 day tour of Sri Lanka with this company. Our guide was Jaya and his skills, dedication, kindness, and knowledge can not be beat.

Every morning Jaya greeted us with a freshly cleaned car, bottle of water, great itinerary, and a warm smile. Each day he did something more special than the previous one. Some examples, while he was driving he spotted a big monitor lizard and pulled over to show it to us, other times we'd drive by an unusual tree and he would hand us a nature book that described the tree or flower. He drove us along all sorts of back roads, stopping whenever we wanted to take a photo, which was frequently.

His knowledge of local history, culture and religions was extremely deep and he did a beautiful job explaining things to us and answering all our questions.
It was a real treat to have him explain to us the ceremonies that were occuring in the various temples we visited.

Jaya also made sure we experienced some of the unusual local fruits. He pulled over to a roadside fruit stand each day to introduce us to a new type of banana (we had 4 of the 10 varieties available), freshly sliced mango, and we would stop regularly so I could enjoy the water from a king coconut.

What was especially nice about this company is Sarath the owner helped us plan our itinerary and Jaya was totally flexible each day if we wanted to tweak things a bit. Unlike other companies that seem to offer the same cookie cutter itinerary, we were able to choose exactly what we wanted to do, how long we wanted to spend at a certain site, etc

Sri Lanka is an incredibly beautiful country, from it's beaches, to the hill country, to it's cities like Kandy. You will really like it here and the people are incredibly kind and friendly.

In short, you will love touring with this company and Sri Lanka.

And lastly, Jaya thank you for a trip of a lifetime and for all you did for us.

Oh one more thing, be sure to see the elephants in the late afternoon at Udawalawee National Park. It's truly amazing to see them in the wild.

Thanks to Sarath and his organisation our discovery of centre-south of Sri Lanka was marvelous!
We felt awaited for and welcome since we started to organize our trip with Sarath. He answered immediately to our request, proposed a tour program perfectly tailored to respond to our wishes and gave us hotel options that totally satisfied our desires.
We were taken in charge and accompanied with care and the greatest respect all over the 9 days vacation, since we landed in Colombo, until we returned to the airport. Sarath prooved the highest professionalism and flexibility to cope with our timings, wishing a holiday experience and not just a quick visit of touristic sites. So, on the go, we modified thanks to his recommandations some details of the program and even the last hotel accommodation. Sarath was always there to find the best solution and make us happy :)
On the top of his tour leading and safe driving, Sarath is also an experienced and skilled touristic guide that shared with us knowledge of Sri Lanka history, religion and culture while he personally accompanied us to the principal sites of interest.
I recommend Sarath and SriLankan Tour Guide for a successful trip to this wonderful country!

My girlfriend and I had the opportunity to visit Sri Lanka in March 2024, together with another couple and we had a blast! We had the pleasure to spend 10 - very intense - days with Sisira, the best guide we could ever ask for: he has been very patient with us, keen on getting us anywhere, anytime we wanted according to our already planned stops.

He was also really knowledgeable about all places and local culture, which contributed to make everything just unforgettable!

Moreover, the van we travelled on was very comfortable and roomy, allowing us to bring 4 big luggages and 4 carry ons.

Simply AMAZING, 100% recommended!

Keep up the outstanding job you’ve been doing.

As a group of three Danish guys looking to vacate in Sri Lanka, Sarath was the perfect fourth man to the group. He helped, drove and guided us through our 13 days in Hikkaduwa, Mirissa, Imbulpe, Bentote and Colombo. Sarath was very kind, laid back and flexible and set up our tour all the way - from buying SIM-cards at arrival to traintickets for our beautiful trainride through the countryside. Sarath was a good and safe driver who met all of our needs. We could not have asked for a better guide for our lovely vacation. We can only recommend him for any travellers going to Sri Lanka 🌴

Sarath was a fantastic tour guide and chauffeur during our recent holiday trip to Sri Lanka. We travelled around Sri Lanka with Sarath for 2 weeks in total visiting multiple locations and famous spots. He was great at making personal recommendations for us of where we should go, eat and what to do. He always got us from A to B in comfort and in air conditioned transportation. I highly recommend Sarath as a tour guide for future travellers and tourists looking to explore Sri Lanka! Thank you Sarath.

Me and my bestfriend visited Sri Lanka for 2 weeks. It was our first long distance journey. Sarath was our tour guide and driver. He picked us up at the airport and we already had a good feeling about him, because he was really friendly.
We traveled in his Van from one city/ village to another and his driving skills are excellent. For us the Sri Lankan people are crazy drivers but we always fell asleep in the car.
Before traveling we already planned a little what we would do everyday, but Sarath added some surprises. We told him that we’d like to do whale watching, but it wasn’t on our route. Two days before our last place to be he surprised us with an Idea how we could do whale watching. So he picked us up at 04:30 in the morning to drive 2 hourse to the harbor for whale watching and it was an unforgettable experience! We are really thankful for that.
He is really organized and thoughtful. He wasn’t obtrusive and let us discover things on our own. We were surprised about his knowledge, you can ask him anything and he always has an answer!

We booked a roundtrip for 7 days, before we came to Sri Lanka I wrote Sarath the routing and all the hotels we booked, so when we came, he picked us from the airport with a very warm welcome and we drove straight to Sigariya. It was a very long route for a short time so we spent a lot of time in the car. We saw a lot and Sarath organized everything for us. I work in a travel agency and we also book him for our customers. I can therefore highly recommend Sarath as a driver/guide.
