No matter how you envision your perfect vacation, you can find your heart’s desire in this friendly, fascinating country. Completely surrounded by ocean, you can visit countless idyllic white sandy beaches. If you prefer a jungle adventure, Sri Lanka’s tropical climates create unique nature environments rich in bio-diversity.

8D Tours was the best decision to choose, my tour guide Charaka was so friendly, caring, funny and his Engllish was amazing, too. I traveled solo and with him I never felt lonely, we did a trip to Polonnaruwa, where he showed me his insider knowledge about the Sri lankan culture and history. But at the same time he was funny and like a friend. I really can recommend booking tours with 8D Tours.
Apart from that I also stayed in his homestay "2in1 Kandy" for most of my time in Sri Lanka, because the atmosphere there was so chilled and it felt like home. Chara always helped me and never got tired of my questions and my inconclusiveness.

PS: Considering the Sri lankan traffic he is an awesome driver as well, always drives carefully which means something when you are in Sri Lanka haha

Thank you Chara! Hanna from Germany

Me and my daughter made a tour with Charaka during 5 days exploring the south of Sri Lanka. Everything worked very well and he was very receptive for our wishes. He guided us throughout and showed good knowledge in everything from Buddhism, animal life, culture to the social, economic and political context of Sri Lanka. We made a great friend in Charaka during our tour and hope that we one day can return to also explore the northern part of this beautiful country.

Our trip to Sri Lanka was amazing beyond words, all thanks to Charaka! He brought us around to amazing places & none of it was disappointing. Strong recommend using his service as it is reliable, safe & value for money (traveling around Sri Lanka without a driver can be a little hassle & costly). On top of everything, he speaks very good English & understood what we wanted. Overall, 10/10!

We traveled around Sri Lanka for the past 10 days. A friend recommended 8D and together with Charaka we planned for a busy but very varying trip. We had a wonderful time and were so happy with 8D. A perfect combination of a personal treatment and your own privacy, nothing is too much to ask. Everywhere we were Charaka knew where to go for some food or tea or a pretty view. The trip was very well put together and we feel so enriched by all the new experiences. An added benefit of 8D is you get so much additional 'local' information about religion, habits and cultural differences. All in all, we would 100% recommend 8D for a trip!!

We had an awesome trip to Sri Lanka this January all thanks to Charaka, Gayan and Kelsi. They took very good care of us and with their help even our mother, despite her age and leg pain could reach Sigiriya. I would highly recommend 8D Sri Lanka to any one wanting to visit Si Lanka and we will go back for sure.

The 2 Chongs from Malaysia

Mr Charaka D Wijeratna , our driver cum host for 2 in 1 Hostel and Homestay in Kandy is a fantastic (knowledgeable, humble, pleasant, accommodating, caring, handworking and jovial) person. Even before setting foot on Sri Lankan soil he had been communicating with the young Chong and advising her in many things. His encouragement had helped the senior Chong who has all sorts of leg problem to reach the summit of the Lion Rock in Sigiriya . - thanks Mr. Charaka.

Mr Charaka's 2 in 1 Hostel and Homestay is spacious, neat, clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Having a cup of hot coffee in the afternoon and enjoying the view of Kandy from the balcony is just great.

He is a safe and skillful driver, snaking his way up and down the highlands.

When friends saw the photos and read our travel log on facebook, some thought that we have been traveling with a friend we know in Sri Lanka. Indeed, we felt Mr. Charaka was a friend of ours rather than a driver we engaged during our travel in Sri Lanka. We would like to give you a double thumb up to you, Mr. Charaka.

We could not have asked for more from you Mr. Charaka. Once again thank you very much.

8D SRI LANKA and 2 in 1 Hostel are of course highly recommended.

8D Tours provided us with our best days in Sri Lanka. Our guide Charaka expertly took care of all our comfort needs while introducing us to some of Sri Lanka's most beautiful and interesting places.

Charaka speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable of the places we visited. He could easily switch between talking about practical matters to the significance and history of places we saw to the cultural and spiritual climate current in Sri Lanka. He has a calm, easy going nature that made our trip very pleasurable. We felt spoiled by his excellent care.

I'm particularly grateful for how kind he was to my 15-year-old daughter. She stopped being shy and was able to play and enjoy the places we went to as she felt we had a real local friend to show us around.

Charaka also took photos of us during the tour. We didn't have many photos together, so this was much appreciated. He took my favorite photo of me and my daughter from our trip. The pictures came out professional and beautiful!

We also stayed in 2in1 Kandy as our base. Felt like home.

I can not give a higher recommendation to 8D tours or 2in1 Kandy. You will be taken very good care of if you select them as your guides to Sri Lanka.
