We returned to Kalutara after 11 years, for a 3 week stay with friends. Before we departed, I decided to look into the cost a trip to Kandy and the Lion Rock (Sigiriya) with overnight stay in Kandy. Uplanka Tours appeared to have an excellent customer feedback, so I enquired with them. Dunika (the son - it's a father and son business) of Uplanks Tours responded immediately, with a price which was almost unbelievable. I booked straight away, they guaranteed us sole use of the min bus and they did'nt even want a deposit. Just to phone them when we arrived and give them our room number! When we had our "reps" meeting at the hotel, it appeard that we were saving some £67 per person by going with Uplanka Tours! To say it was probably the best money ever spent, would be an understatement. We travelled in a new Toyota mini bus (seats 10 ) and we were escorted for the 2 day trip by Kandy (the dad). He could not do enough for us. We visited all the "attractions" on that particular tour with all addmission prices included, as well as the hotel in Kandy for Dinner Bed and Breakfast. A few days later we thought we would like to visit Galle, so I contacted Dinuka, and we agreed a price and date for this day trip. Again, Kandy took us and we could not fault his commitment to ensuring that we had an very enjoyable day. BUT where this company really shone was 4 days before we were due to return home. My wife developed an infection, which required hospital treatment. I texted Dinuka at 6.00pm asking if either of them were available to "taxi" us to the hospital. At 6.30pm Kandy arrived, (he'd only just got back from a day trip), and escorted us through the hospital in 1.5 hours. Had he not been there for us, because of the language barrier, we would probably have been in there or 4/5 hours. But, having dropped us back at our hotel, Kandy refused to charge us for his time or cost!! THAT'S WHY I SAY AGAIN - "DON'T USE ANYONE ELSE - THESE ARE THE BEST"

Dinuka has been so professional and respectful, and very punctual. He took great care of us on the day and is very knowledgeable with all the areas and attractions. Definitely recommended and Dinka would be the 1st person I would call again for a excursion. Thank you again

We made a private trip from Kalutara to Udawalawa National Park with jeep safari, spotted lots of animals! Everything was arranged well, no bad surprises. Way back we stopped and watched a temple and as I wanted to buy Gemstone jewelry we stopped at a place near Ratnapura. Dinuka and his father gave lot of explanations about the culture and the surroundings. Highly recommendable, affordable and trustful service!

My mum and I after searching through recvomendations online decided to book two tours with Uplanka. Both of them took entire Day (from 4am). We wanted to see as much as we could and because we were staying only 10 days in Sri Lanka thought it will be the best option. From the beggining they didnt let us down. Communication, transport, organasation- everything was absolutely spot on. We knew what we wanted to see however we were able to see much more than that. With fantastic, kind and helpful company it was an amazing and memorable experiance. My mum doesn't speak English that well however they put so much effort to make her feel welcome and comfortable with no pressurepp of time. . Climbing 1200 steps wasnt easy for me, let alone for her. I higly reccomend Uplanka Tour. Thank you ever so much for everything. P. S. Ive got about 1000 from both tours byt could only upload few.

It took me some time to find them on net, but it was worthy of every minute. Perfect communication, pick up from our hotel just on time, trip was solo for us two as promised. Whats most important (from my experience in Sri Lanka): The driver was very skilled and professional. Sri Lankan roads can be really rough and with heavy traffic. Nothing was a problem, everything was exactly as promoted. They were even able to get us some really good and calm spot for elephant sightseeing on the river - which is the main draw of this trip. Furthermore: Although there was holiday, we were able to visit tea factory as planned, which was really great - Have you ever had the whole factory for yourselves? Incredible. And all of that for really good and reasonable price. Tuto cestovku jsem si vybrala po dlouhém pátrání na netu. Vyplatilo se. Komunikace byla rychlá, bez jediného zádrhelu, všechno přesně podle dohodnutého itineráře. Mají spolehlivé řidiče, což je na Srí Lance velké plus. Nejlepší ze všeho bylo, že Vás "nenechají osudu". Doporučí nejlepší místo pro pozorování slonů, poskytnou i fundovaný výklad. Protože jsme cestovali na jejich svátek, poštěstilo se nám, že jsme měli zpracovnu čaje pouze pro sebe. Sice stroje nešly (pustili nám je jen na ukázku), ale měli jsme průvodkyni jen sami pro sebe. Super zážitek. Nabízené ceny jsou velice rozumné, oproti hotelovým cestovkám násobně nižší.
