Me and my friend can highly recommand Ronnie as a Guide. We enjoyed a 10 day trip through sri lanka with ronnie. He knows so much about every part in sri lanka and tried to show us as much as possible and he shared his knowledge. He also responded individually to our needs and wishes and took such good care of us. He is super funny, flexible, spontaneous and individual. If you want an individual, diverse, varied and personal travel, we highly recommand to book your trip with ronnie. You will for sure see so much diversity and so much about sri lanka and you will definitely know so much more about the country & the culture after your journey.

I would highly recommend ronni and baba for taking you on a tour when in sri lanka.
Firstly most of us would be apprehensive to use someone we did not know but they came highly recommended so for once we gave it a go which was a very good decision Firstly Ronni kept in contact regarding what we wanted and dates and times prior to the holiday. and it was all arranged using messenger. He said he would pick us up from our hotel in kalutra at 5.30am to take us to YALA for overnight stay and safai and return the next day via the elephant transit centre. well they arrived on time in a nice new car with good air con, both ronni and the driver were well presented and polite. Ronie's English was excellent. On route to Yala Ronni made some stops to break up the journey. he arranged a very nice hotel for us with breakfast and evening meal. we checked in then we went on the safari. Ronni sat with us in the back of our own safari 4x4 vehicle our driver sat with the safari jeep driver to take us off road.
The safari driver was excellent taking us to areas and spotting elephants and a leopard, various birds, and other animals. after we were taken back to the hotel which had pool Jacuzzi , air con rooms and good food. they picked us up at 9.15 am the next day. we then went to see the elephant transfer centre and then made way back to kalutra via the moonstone mine. also stopped at a local market to see the culture and Ronni was with us to ensure we were left alone and were safe and explained the culture and how market worked

Basically from when we were picked up we were looked after through out the tour. everything was agreed prior to our trip from the UK of where we wanted to go and the price. Everything was taken care of on our trip by Ronni who sorted out the safari tickets and truck, the hotel and bill, and we by passed queues to see the elephants at the transfer centre.

We can highly recommend them as they really took care of us and our safety through the trip. we hope to go back to sri lanka for which we will be contacting ronni again for another trip because its personalised , safe. good value.

Me and my dad both really wanted to visit Sri Lanka and decided to do a big tour around the island. Thankfully we got Ronie as our local tour guide. Our group (5 people) got to see Sri Lanka at its best and we are truly grateful for Ronie’s amazing guiding skills. He managed to show us not just the picture perfect country but also the reality that is often not displayed. More than once he told us stories about his life which made the whole experience a lot more personal.
11/10 would recommend to anyone that is looking to book a tour and see Sri Lanka.

I have known Ronnie and Baba for many years and have been on many tours with them. This trip in 2018 was a bit different. I was taking my daughter who had never been to the country before as my husband was unable to travel, and I had developed a very sore knee......a knee replacement is needed. Ronnie and Baba were very considerate and looked after me as though I was a member of their family. The trips we went on were varied and included the set used for UK tv programme Good Karma Hospital. Nothing was too much trouble for them. You can't go wrong if you book with Happy Tours. Your holiday in Sri Lanka will be a holiday to remember.

Czech review:

Na Srí lanku jsem se vydala společně s rodinou a přáteli do krásného ubytování Happy Villa, kde se o nás naprosto skvěle starali Ronie a Baba. Každý den nám plánovali bohatý program, ale nezapomínali ani odpočinek na pláži a vydatnou stravu od kuchaře, kterého pro nás zařídili.
Ráda vzpomínám na celodenní výlet do přírodní rezervace Yala park, kde jsme zblízka viděli slony, opice, buvoly a různá další pro Srí lanku typická zvířata.
Za nejzajímavější zážitek považuji výlet do chovné stanice pro želvy a sloního sirotčince.
Další výlety se skládaly hlavně z nákupů, protože o ty jsme měli největší zájem. Nakoupili jsme různé druhy velmi kvalitního koření, viděli místní trhy a různá řemesla.
Jeden den jsme se také zajeli koupat do vodopádů v džungli a byli pohoštěni v místní rodině.
Viděli jsme čajové plantáže, rýžová pole, jak se pěstuje koření a každý den byli udiveni jako malé děti z nových a nových zážitků.
Na Srí lance jsme trávily dny přes Vánoce až po Silvestra a díky tomu, že se Ronie a Baba za námi každý večer stavovali a vedli velmi příjemnou konverzaci, tak jsme si vlastně ani nevšimli, že nejsme doma v Praze a nic nám nechybělo.
Tento výlet velmi velmi doporučuji.
Srdečně,
Beáta Mužíková

English review:

To Sri Lanka, I went with my family and friends to the lovely Happy Villa, where Ronie and Baba took great care of us. Every day they planned a rich program, but they did not forget to add a rest on the beach and the hearty food from the cook, which they arranged for us.
I like to remember an awesome trip to Yala Park Nature Reserve, where we saw elephants, monkeys, buffaloes, and other animals typical for Sri Lanka.
And my best experience was from the turtle breeding and helping station and elephant orpahanage.
Other trips consisted of purchases because we were most interested in them. We bought various kinds of high quality spices, saw local markets and various crafts.
One day we went for a swim to the jungle waterfalls and we had a lunch with the local family.
We have seen tea plantations, rice fields, how spices are grown and every day as young children we have been happy from new and new experiences.
In Sri Lanka we spent days over Christmas and New Year's Eve and thanks to the fact that Ronie and Baba stayed with us every evening and held a very pleasant conversation, we didn't even noticed that we weren't home in Prague and we didn 't miss anything at all.
I highly recommend this trip.
Warmly,
Beáta Mužíková

I highly recommend tours guided by Baba and Ronnie. They took care of us and showed us all the highlights of Sri Lanka. Thanks to them and their attitude we spent with them two holidays in a row. Baba is former Superstar and really fun to listen to while Ronnie knows a lot about all the places we have visited. This combination is absolutely amazing and they have became not only our best guides, but mainly our friends.

We have travelled many times to Sri Lanka but toured with Ronie every time. He is simply the best. This time we returned to the elephant sanctuary and the temple at Kandy, and everywhere in between. Simply amazing.Thanks Ronie.

Thank you for that great trip through Sri Lanka! You explained a lot and we enjoyed it really :-) it was good, that you were so flexible, and did things with us, we wanted do to spontaneous - like taking a round with a tuctuc or going on safari seeing elephants. Thanks for that! You did a great job!

Ronnie is a very good guide.
We do two trips with Ronnie.
Frist we where on the Udawalawa nationalpark and on a other day we did a boatsafari and visited a temple.
Ronnie speak very well German and English.
He is very friendly.

To the boatsafari we drove with the Tuck-Tuck, very great!

We learned a lot of about Sri Lanka, the peoples and the tradionals.

The prices for the trips were also correct.

The trips were very interesting and excellent
