    Our guide was fantastic and helped us see a wide range of animals including the south bear and even leopard. Our 11 and 8 year old kids loved the day as well.

    We had a great time with our guide, Ricky. The tour around Colombo was exactly what we wanted and exactly as described. Ricky was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We recommend this tour for those wanting to get a feel if the city quickly, with a view to returning to explore mire at a later time. Ask for Ricky! He's great!

    Me and my friend was looking for a day trip so we could maximise what we could see in the time we have in Colombo. This trip did not disappoint. We started at 9am and finished round about 8pm. So it was a full day of seeing a lot of things. Our guide Vidu was so lovely. He knew so much about everywhere we went and was patience with us. If we wanted to stop and take photos or know more about something he would stop. We did a lot more than we thought we would have. I would 100% recommend this trip and worth the price!!

    What an amazing way to see the city and experience the local food! We would never had tried the variety if it wasn’t for our guide Maran taking us to the best local spots. Come hungry as the portions are huge and oh so tasty. Maran was friendly and informative. A must-do activity in Colombo!

    This rafting is much more exciting than domestic rafting. The scenery on both sides of the Straits is superb, the river is also very wide, the gap is very large, and it is very exciting.

    I was blown away with my tour of Colombo with Bandara. He was on time and the car was clean. He took me to so many places and made sure I saw what I wanted plus more! I was a little worried to do this tour alone but he made me feel very safe. He escorted me in and out of every stop and was very professional. He also took photos for me which was amazing! He took his time to make sure I saw everything and I am very grateful for him. I highly recommend this tour!

    Everything was well organized and ran smoothly.
    Ashee arranged for us to be collected from our cruise ship and driven to the market to meet Nim.
    We wandered through the market and Nim introduced us to lots of new vegetables and fruits and spices. We got to try lots of things at the market and could decide what we wanted to cook that morning for our lunch.
    The people at the market were warm and friendly, and Nim shared his knowledge at every step.

    Next we took a TukTuk ride to Nims place. Away from the business of the city, with monkeys swinging in the trees, mongoos and other animals wandering around in the gorgeous surroundings outside his place.

    Then it was time to get to work. Nim gave us step by step instructions and what and why we were doing things.
    We cooked a jackfruit curry, an amazing fish curry, we made coconut sambal and coconut roti. All delicious!!! And washed down with a Sri Lankan beer.

    When it was time to get back to our ship, Nim had a car waiting to take us back on time for sailing.

    Really a wonderful day that gave us not just a taste of Sri Lankan food, but also the culture and the kindness.

    My wife and myself have just returned from our day trip to Kandy. 5am start ! Got picked up at our hotel by Dinesh (air-conditioned car) for the drive to Kandy. I won't go into all the details but I have to say I couldn't fault anything and Dinesh was so helpful and attentive to our every need ! I would definitely use Bentota travel again.
