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 booked with Gihan’s tour service on the recommendation of a friend, and Kosala was our guide. After some back and forth with Gihan, we settled on an itinerary to suit our desires/needs and Gihan’s service included a driver/guide, car, hotel reservations/procurement and certain other activities, all at a very reasonable aggregate price. The planning was well done, and Kosala was a rather amazing guide. We had front row seats reserved at the cultural program, choice seats at cool restaurants, train tickets pulled from thin air... besides being very responsible and attentive (and a safe driver), Kosala has a way of making awesome things happen for you. I highly recommend both Gihan’s services and Kosala in particular.

We were in December traveling for almost a month through Sri Lanka.
Everything was wonderful since the beginning and even more with the great help and service of Gihan.
Since we started planning our trip, he was always ready to answer quickly our emails to clarify our doubts about the itinerary we were planning.
Once we arrived in Colombo, Kosala our driver picked us up at the airport. Since that moment everything started well. The van we had was in super good condition, clean and with a safe child seat we request in advanced.
Kosala was always very kind, always asking what we needed and wanted, he checked every single hotel we stayed in, all the hotel we stayed in were clean , beautiful places and with good service and good breakfast as well. The tours were always organized in place and time (perfect if you are traveling with toddlers)
It was very nice to travel with him because during the driving he taught us a lot about his culture, gastronomy and religion, we did enjoy that fact very much because we are always willing to get to know the places we visit through the locals.
He was very attentive and always helping with our daughter, she also had a good time with his new friend Kosala.
The truth is that it was one of the most beautiful trips I have ever taken in my life and I would recommend it a thousand times.
Thanks Gihan and Kosala for taking care of us in your beautiful contry.

We asked Gihan for a spontaneous Trip, he sent us the offer in 20! Minutes. Jude, the driver was driving very safe and the car was comfortable. He showed us the most impressive spots in lokal style adapted to our wishes, not massive touristic ones.
Ask Jude for the best Kottu Roti and Ice cream 😉!
We can highly recommend this company if you want to see Sri Lanka in a professional and organized and flexibel way.

We had a very good time with our driver Indra who is a very friendly and relaxed person. He was absolutely flexible and reliable, gave us many options and explained a lot.
The tour could not have been better and I will recommend Gihan and his team to all those who want to visit Sri Lanka while being guided in a very comfortable and nice way. Everything was explained perfectly and the hotel selection was very good. Thanks to Gihan (esp. Indra) for this great experience!

We've travelled trouth sri lanka from the end of december 2019 untill the middle of january with gihan tours. All the journey planing and präparation with this organisation was very easy. We knew them from a friend of us because they made a nearly simular tour a year ago an they were also very pleased.
So we decided to choose also gihan tours. Our driver was Kumara and he fulfilled all the planed an not planed sightseeing spots and wishes of us threre (two adults and a child). He also organised typical sri lancan food and drinks as lunch, special tempel we wanted to see, elefant riding or farmers lunch. Kumara knows all the short cuts and opening times of museums so that we were always at the right time and place to get tickets and travelling in sri lanka with him is very pleasant. He is also very kind especially to children and knows some playgrounds beside the tour. We can fully rekommend gihan tours and especial Kumara as driver for a relaxing and sightseeing-tour in sri lanka.

My partner and I spent two weeks in beautiful Sri Lanka (Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiryia, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Yala, Galle). We are extremely satisfied of the services of Gihan Tours, as they helped us to have the most pleasant experience.

Planning the trip with Gihan via email was extremely easy from the very beginning. We already had a rough itinerary in mind, and he was extremely helpful and professional in assisting us, suggesting all the best things to do for our tailor-made vacation. We really appreciated that he was very quick in replying to emails, and we never felt alone as sometimes happens when planning a trip in a foreign country, because we knew that he was always available.

The van provided had all the comforts: it was very spacious, comfortable, with leather seats and with perfectly working air conditioning. We don’t usually have personal drivers when traveling and organize tours by ourselves, but it was really a must-have in Sri Lanka, and it took all the stress away with a good value for money.

Our driver, Ashen, is a polite, friendly and fun young man who speaks good English. Last but not least of course, he is a very safe and cautious driver. He made sure that we had fresh water all the time and also stopped along the way for any need we might have. For example, we were really curious to try some fruits, and he provided us with that. We also wanted to buy some traditional Sri Lankan costumes, and he advised a very good shop where we could have them tailor made. He gave us great tips and recommended us good guides in different locations and interesting things to do. Not only was he our driver, but also sometimes guide and translator as well as friend whom to chat with. He really made the extra mile for us, being flexible in changing the itinerary, picking us up whenever we wanted and even just to drop us to some restaurant for dinner. Having him as our driver really made this trip extraordinary and safe.

We will recommend Gihan tours to our friends and family and without any doubt to ask Ashen as driver!

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.

Excellent clean professional service.

Good chat, safe driving, clean cars.
Sinharaja Rainforest tour, takes most of the day, worth the early start, to see low lying cloud in the hills. Trek is not too difficult, sturdy shoes or trainers are fine, no real need for walking boots. Take snacks for when you arrive at the waterfall and go for a dip, altho the tour guide did kindly provide some tasty veg roti.

Even for finding me breakfast at 6AM, Mosquito spray, Snacks en route, and anything else I needed,

No complaint a enjoyable transfer and tour.

thanks guys I will be using you again,
