Dhana was a simply perfect guide for our two-week trip to Sri Lanka.
He showed us the authentic side of Sri Lanka and was always very attentive to our needs, fulfilling all our little wishes.

He realized a tailor-made tour for our road-trip in Sri Lanka, providing us with impeccable service and allowing us to get to know and experience the 'local' traditions without ever making us experience anything too touristy. We really felt at home!

I would highly recommend Dhana and his Go Holiday Tours to anyone who really wants to discover a country as amazing as Sri Lanka and who is looking for an unforgettable trip.

I'm sure you won't regret it 😎

We made a great trip to the south of Sri Lanka at the end of December 2019 and the beginning of January. Dhanushaka and alternately his German driver Sanjeewa accompanied and guided us. Everything was excellent, unbelievably reliable, punctual, very committed and extremely warm. We made a tour with children from Galle to Rekawa beach, lunugamvehera national park, Gal oya national park (with boat safari and walk with Veedha tribe), Ella, train ride to Nanu oya, Hatton. We are reminded of beautiful and varied landscapes, authentic food, absolutely child-hostile people and a variety of plants and animals. Go Holidays is 100 percent serious and good. Even with small children you can plan a trip with many stops. We will be back! Thanks for everything !

The tour was amazing, a very good combination between culture, nature, relax and food. The first day we lost our bag and Dhana helped us to find it and thanks to him we got it. We are so thankful for that. Our driver was Pradeep, he was always reliable and very kind. We really enjoyed the tour!

At the end of August 2015 my husband and I toured Sri Lanka with our personal guide / driver Dhanushka "Dhana" Lowe for six days. It was a magical and absolute fantastic journey, thanks to Dhana. He not only made it possible that we could manage to include all the sites of our ambitious plan (Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Habarana, Dambulla, Kandy, Matale, Tea factory, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Mini Adam's Peak, Rawana Waterfalls, Buduruwagala, Yala National Park) in six days, but also planned everything so cleverly that we also always had enough time to unwind and relax. We followed his recommendation to book guesthouses instead of middle class hotels in order to experience the more authentic Sri Lanka, and that was an excellent decision. For every single night Dhana picked a very unique place, e.g. a cabana in the jungle with an impromptu folk music concert, a place with a view over the city of Ella, where we could watch the sunrise from our bed, or a luxury tree house for our wedding anniversary. Besides being an outstanding driver and a perfect guide as well as an organizational genius, Dhana is also a very kind and funny person. We had a great time with him and are very thankful for the great experiences we made on our journey. We are definitely coming back to Sri Lanka and are already looking forward to see our new friend Dhana again. Thank you Dhana!!!

We visited Sri Lanka during December 2016 and January 2017 for the first time. My girlfriend took care searching for a tour guide during our stay and found Go Holiday Tours after reading some recommendations on a traveling blog.

Planning our tour was totally uncomplicated, since they provide you with preplanned 7 to 14 day tours. Furthermore you can add extra wishes or change existing tours as you desire. Just let them know and they will find a way to make it happen.

We were picked up at our hotel in Colombo from Jayantha Bogahakotuwa, or simply called Jay. One of the most open-minded, delightful, caring and easy-going guys I have ever met. Ask for Jay when booking the tour, you won’t regret it!

The tour:
First of all I would like to start with Jay’s driving skills. Believe me we have had different drivers throughout our 3 weeks stay and Jay was definitely the best. He is driving smoothly, watches the traffic carefully and most importantly drives safely. He always makes sure that you have enough drinking water and fresh fruits. When it comes to being a tour guide he is outstanding, he tells you everything there is to know about all the sightseeing, culture, places and habits of Sri Lanka and its people. No matter what question you have, he either has the answer to it, or he makes sure to find one.

Jay made our holiday trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable! Not only did we have a great tour through Sri Lanka but also did we leave as friends. Thank you Jay, we will definitely come back.

I went a Negambo city tour with Mr.Dhanushka Low and it was one of the best local tours I ever experienced. He has a vast experience and knowledge about the beautiful locations all around the country. I got remarkable feedback from my friends and I would like to recommend 'Go Holiday Tours' to everyone who are expecting a memorable tour experience in Sri Lanka.

Go Holiday tours has been a perfect selection for us. Me and my friends booked Go holiday tours service for 14 days after reading all the positive reviews on Trip advisor, I'm from Srilanka actually and but I have been living 10 plus years in Australia, So I thought next time I go back to Srilanka I'll everywhere in Srilanka. Because back in the days didn't travel much in Srilanka.

I have to say they have been fast and responsive to all our questions via email and WhatsApp. Dhanushka (the owner) always went the extra mile to advise and plan our itinerary.(tour plan)

We were so lucky that we got the most experienced guide/driver at go travel tours and that's the owner himself Mr. Dhanushka.
He was the deal for us as he was super friendly and very knowledgeable person.
He shared a lot of his experiences and explained to us about Sri Lankan culture, what changed past decade in SL and etc. we requested as he always wanted the best for us.
Our journey never felt bored because he had so much of interesting topics to talk about. At the same time. This main has a crazy network and knows most amazing joints in Srilanka which you normally see only in movies. Even after Being a Srilankan I didn't have any idea that I used to live in a paradise like this. This man (Dhanushka) made me realise that there is no place beautiful that Srilanka.
Thank you so very much Dhanushka and Go holiday Tours for showing us everything. We very much enjoyed our time with you. We will certainly ask for you again next time when we visit Sri Lanka.

More than a reliable and friendly guide! Dhana impressed us with his vast knowledge about his country, its history, landscape and wildlife. This paired with his always funny character made our trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable. We were never bored and had real fun. Plus Dhana is an excellent organizator and he always, always has a plan B - and plan C is just arond the corner when everything else fails. The clean hotels are lovely and well chosen with fanatstic views and friendly staff.
Photographers will find a very good guide with Dhana - he made everything possible for us to get the best light or spots. And above all, he probed to be a real friend when my husband got a medical emergency.
I would do another trip with Dhana anytime again :-)

We had a great tour around SL with our very nice driver and guide Buddika - arranged by Dhana. Planning of the tour was very good. We got good advice from Dhana, and he considered our ideas and wishes. We spent one week with Buddika, he is a great driver - we always felt safe! A very nice travel companion and good guide. Sepcial mention: the very nice Hotel Villa 7 in Negombo where we spent the last night. Very personal nice little Hotel with best Curry we had during the whole trip!! And just 5 minutes from the beach :-)
