My wife and I just completed a 12 day drive that covered the ancient cities, hill country and the south beaches. We dealt with Papa who was very helpful, prompt and flexible. We settled for a tour that he suggested and we were extremely pleased with the sights and experience.
We were driven around by Papa’s brother, Kumara who was fantastic. We were safe and in such good hands. A quite person by nature, he was caring, composed and very helpful. We also had a chance to drop in and have a cuppa with Papa and his wonderful family.
We chose our own accommodation and wanted to have a private driver. Papa was happy to accomodate this. The cost was affordable and not overpriced compared to other high end companies. This is a family run business and we were very happy with it all. Bear in mind though that what you are getting is a driver and not a full on tour guide - and this would suit people who are easy going, adaptable, and want to travel semi independently . We have already recommended them to our friends already and will be happy to use their services again. Thank you once again for a wonderful experience ( BTW, Papa is having issues with his email. For some reason which Microsoft still can’t solve, he has been locked out. We communicated via Whatsapp prior to our arrival and that worked fine).

From the moment we started planning our trip in December 2017 Papa Priayantha helped us fulfil our dream trip. As July 2018 was our 20th year wedding anniversary we wanted to have a vacation never to forget.
I've tried communicating and booking the trip with several of Sri Lankan drivers but none of them reacted so prompt and complete.
We've had some special requests for the anniversary and a birthday as well in which Papa Priyantha had good suggestions and surprises even my wife wasn't aware of.
Once we arrived at Colombo airport we were in the safe hands of Kumara, it took us a couple of hours before we noticed that he was actually Papa's brother. Kumara's relaxed and quiet nature is something to be enjoyed. Very safe driving, which you can't say for all drivers in Sri Lanka. While driving we were surprised by the knowledge of the country, it's habits, crops, trees and animals. Kumara even saw animals and flowers to be noticed while keeping an eye for the road.
At lunch time it's nice to have someone looking after what you eat. Though most bakers or shops might look alike to us Kumara always looked for himself to make sure the food was fresh enough and would be suited for us western people.
Our anniversary stay was marvellous and special arrangements for swimming pool dinner was well taken care of with the hotel management.
After a little week I've had a small accident which required some stitching. Kumara drove us safely, informing the hospital and made sure we were helped quickly. At the same time he arranged the hotel to look after our kids and even drove back to check on them and to make sure they had some lunch. Also Papa checked in several times to make sure we were ok.
At the end of the trip we had the pleasure to enjoy a surprise dinner at the family home for my wife's birthday, cake and balloons were all thought off and we've got to meet the entire family.
We would gladly go back in a few years if we've got the change. The Priyanthana brothers are easy to recommend to everyone visiting Sri Lanka! Please say hi from us, once you get there!

Papa is a very great, helpful person. He organised our honeymoon in Sri Lanka, what was the best trip ever for us. We saw (I think) all the most important and beautiful Sri Lankan monument what people can visit during 1 week. The hotels, what He booked, were really good, beautiful and confortable. The car and the driver/guide was also very helpful, kind. So, I can just suggest Sri Lankan Round Tour to everybody who want to have a really good time in Sri Lanka.

We were a group of friends visiting Sri Lanka for the New Year! We started planning our tour a couple of months in advance & they were really helpful in guiding us through the whole process. They were also very helpful in giving us accommodation according to our tour. We ended up booking our own stays, but we shared all the details and everything was really smooth!

Our driver was Ramsi, and he was amazing!! From the moment he got us from the airport until we left, he made sure we always had a smile on our face. He really hooked us up and did everything to make our trip fun & enjoyable. Towards the end of our trip, We got to meet Papas family and they were lovely in hosting us for tea and snacks. Sri Lanka is full of nice kind people and Sri Lanka round Tours was exactly that!

If you’re visiting Sri Lanka and plan to move around I definitely recommend this team as your private driver service. It was well worth it.

Thank you for making our trip to Sri Lanka one to remember!

Papa organised our honeymoon in 2019 January. It was a 2 week holiday. 1 week round trip, what organised by Papa and 1 week resting on the beach in the hotels what recommended by Papa(hotels were very good, clean).
Everything went easy during our discussion about the details of the tour. Papa was very kind, friendly and helpful. He showed us all the most important thing in Sri Lanka. He book really good hotles for us where we slept during the trip. He provided for us a very good, comfortable and clean car with a very good, kind and english speaker driver.
I can honestly suggest to everybody the Sri Lanka Round Tour.

We spent 7 days on a tour from Colombo through the mountains (Kandy and Nuwara Eliya) the parks (Yala and Udawalawa) and along the beaches to Galle.
Papa organized the whole tour and was very knowledgeable about the land, the people and the culture in each place. We profited many times from his excellent local network. Such when he called a friend at Yala NP and organized an astonishing safari day that we could not have gotten anywhere else.
Even when we stayed in Falle for a few days after the tour, Papa made sure we had everything we needed!
I can only recommend Papa and his tours to anyone. He made sure we had the best vacation possible.
Our deepest thanks for that Papa!!

We had a wonderful time with Papa on our tour. Both Papa and Nana (our driver) were polite, efficient, concerned with our safety and very keen to make sure we had the best experience in Sri Lanka we could have.
If anyone from Australia is thinking of hiring Papa as a guide or Nana as a driver we would be happy to be contacted for a reference .
Thanks guys! Jenny and Richard
