My boyfriend and I travelled to Sri Lanka in March 2020. We booked a round trip tour with Gihan Tours for two weeks. The company was recommended to us from our friends who stayed in Sri Lanka one year ago. Our tour guide was Manoj. From the moment he picked us up from the hotel, he did everything to make our trip perfect and unforgettable. Whatever we were asking for, he managed to fullfill our wishes and it was always the best possible option and not just any. Manoj was also not just a driver, but also a great tour guide and friend. He showed us Sri Lanka from a local point of view. But could also answer any of our tourist questions. The trip took us through the whole island. We have seen everything from wide streets to tiny narrow paths, but all the time we felt safe with our driver Manoj. He showed us all the beautiful sights of Sri Lanka. A beautiful green country. We arrived in Sri Lanka when there was no corona virus, so the virus hit the island at the end of our tour. Manoj did everything to keep us safe and organised hotels even when the government recommended to close all hotels. Even under the curfew, we felt safe and we could drive to the airport with him. We felt very safe and were not let alone. In summary, Sri Lanka is an absolutely beautiful country and a must-have to see. And we can a 100% recommend Gihan Tours and his driver. It is so worthy to visit Sri Lanka with its amazing culture, great food, beautiful scenery and phantastic people.

We were travelling with Gihan Tours through Sri Lanka with our just two year old son for in the end 14 days Before the trip the contact via email was very easy, Gihan provided an initial schedule and it was easy for us to make a couple of changes. He also offered accomodation, but we were free to take them or look on our own. In the end we did a mix. The hotels we booked via Gihan were all fair, clean and honest. Some of them were basic, some were really nice...this seems to depend on the offer in each town. However the only problem we had was in an accomodation we booked ourselves, and our driver and Gihan were helping us solve this as well. When we arrived at the airport our driver Chandana picked us up. Gihan tours also provided a fitting child restraining seat for the little man. Chandana is a very friendly and guy who always was in a good mood. What was important is that our son directly liked him and directly accepted hin as part of the group. When it came to driving, he was an example of careful driving, and always felt very save driving with him. What we are also happy about is that we did not stopp at the typical Tourist trapps. As you can say this is expected from a good tour operator, you learn about people in times of need. Our tour was just during the Corona outbreak, and we experienced more and more things shutting down until eventually there were two days of complete curfew. Under this circumstances Chandana and Gihan decided - without us even asking- that they will stay with us until we are save at the airport and extended the tour with no extra charges. This shows that safety for the customer is really the number one priority for them. We are really thankful to Chandana and Gihan for what they have done for us during this crisis and warmly recommend them to anybody who needs a driver or a tour Operator in Sri Lanka, because they really care. We also wish them all the best for their Future.

Where to begin? We are coming to the end of our 3 week trip to Sri Lanka and we have had the most amazing time. For this we have to thank Gihan Tours and our fantastic driver, Ashen. From the moment we began to plan our trip Mr Gihan was swift to respond to emails and open to any suggestions we made. He arranged the first 2 weeks of our holiday which took in Negombo, Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella, Yala and finally Galle. Pick up from the airport was arranged for us and we were driven to our final chill-out destination (Balapitiya). Although Mr Gihan was prepared to book all of our accommodation for our stays we wanted to stay in some specific hotels so in the end we used 2 of his suggestions and they were amazing places which gave a great taste of Sri Lanka (Morning Star Guest House in Negombo and Goddess Garden in Sigiriya). When we return to Sri Lanka in the future, 🤞, we would have no hesitation in letting Mr Gihan book our hotels. And now to our driver Ashen. From the very beginning he was friendly, helpful and always smiling. Nothing was ever too much trouble (finding a hair drier shop, beer shops, hand gels and a batik shop were just a few of our demands!) and he didn't mind if we changed plans last minute. We always felt safe with him driving and he answered lots and lots of our questions. The tours that he took us on were really well organised and we had a lot of fun and laughter. In particular we would like to thank Praneeth at Muthurajawella by Boat for a very interesting boat trip through the wetlands; Janika for such a fun elephant safari and especially Mr Kamal who was our tour guide at Anuradapura. We learned a lot about Sri Lankan history and Buddhism through him. Such a kind and funny man who kept us on our toes with his little challenges! We have fallen in love with Sri Lanka and this is because Mr Gihan and Ashen gave us the best of experiences. Thank you both 🌞🙏🤗❤

We made a 10 day round trip through Sri Lanka with Jude. Jude was the best driver you could wish for. He brought us closer to people and country. Also his recommendations concerning the food were always super good. He responded spontaneously and flexibly to our route wishes and told us what we should definitely see and what you can do without. Thanks again for the great round trip!
