    The Hello Travel agency where very professional. They organized the trip, booked hotels, arranged the transports and scheduled the visits according to my time of travel.

    Without them I could not see all these places in Sri Lanka within one week.

    Mr Dhanuka took care of everything very well. He advised me through all the necessary documents before travel and took my feedback every day for the convenience of the trip. He was so responsive if I ever needed to change anything in the plan.

    Mr Thushara, the driver and the guide, was best of his kind. He was a gentle, professional, humble driver. He had a tremendous amount of knowledge about the places that he takes me. He explained about the history, traditions, atmospheres, geography,…,etc. He was so kind and very respectful man.

    I definitely recommend them for travel and I will surely hire them again for my trip to Sri Lanka.

    Tickets were dropped to hotel and the train journey was amazing. Excellent views and the ability to sit at open door and take in scenery is once in a lifetime opportunity

    I really liked my trip - all the places were just breathtaking. The temple, the Sigirya - I fell in love with those, definitely one of my favourite places in Sri Lanka so far. And the lunch was really good as well, and the cook was just the nicest person, making sure I really ate a lot, and also showing me her work with rice.
    My guide was very nice as well, very helpful and provided a lot of information. I can really recommend!

    This was just magnificent. You never know what to expect and we came to SL at a difficult time but this tour exceeded all our expectations.
    The reviews were spot on.
    Roshan is not only extremely knowledgeable but trustworthy and kind.
    This is a unique experience and we couldn't reccomend it more.
    The waterfalls were incredible, Roshans kindness, local knowledge & the lunch.
    Well you can see for yourself.
    If you come to Sri Lanka & try this tour you won't regret it.
    We especially loved visiting his village such a beautiful place full of honest inspiring people.
    Thank you Roshan, see you next time!

    We had a really nice trip to Kandy! Our tour guide, Aaron, set up a tour of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth relic which was very informative. We also had a tour of a tea factory complete with tea tasting! And we made an impromptu stop at an elephant sanctuary. We had a really wonderful day thanks fo Apple Vacation and Aaron! Would recommend!

    We had a great time going to Ambuluwawa tower. Our tour guide Pali was amazing. He picked us up from our hotel and took us to the tower by tuk tuk which was a great experience in itself! He was eager to point out the sights to us and stop if we wished.
    The view from the tower is incredible and I would definitely recommend it. If you are afraid of heights the view from inside is still amazing even if you choose not to climb the full height. A word of warning though, if you choose to climb the tower it is not forgiving if you are larger in size. It gets incredible narrow in some places.

    All of the tour was great, although a bit physically demanding in terms of climbing steps. If I had to pick one favourite part of the day it was the add on safari tour into the National Park. It was a pity this cost us a further US$45 per head and required us to forego getting close to Sigiriya Rock. Our driver, Ilham, was just fantastic and did everything he could to ensure that we had a really enjoyable and educational day.

    We had a great afternoon with Mr Laxman from Lux Tours. We visited the botanical garden, the tea factory, the herb garden. We stopped for fresh fruit which was delicious. Very respectful and friendly interaction. Knows a lot about Kandy the surroundings.

    Specially thanks Mr dimuth, gave us a grand day trip in this situation we were afraid to travel but we felt very safe to travel in the country.
    Still srilanka is a very safe country to travel.

    We drove with Nuwan from Kandy to Sigirya and then to Negombo in one day. It was great!
    We actually just needed a driver to bring us from one stop to the next, but he did much more! First of all, he is a good and save driver. His car is really good and comfortable.
    During the day we could ask him everything about Sri Lanka, he even went with us to the Dambulla caves and explained everything to us. He took us to a spice Garden and to a place, where they showed us how to make all the different natural colours, which they use for painting the wooden masks and much more.We wanted to climb up the Lions Rock, but befor that he took us to the pidurangala rock where we had an amazing few! From there we could see that so many people were lining up to get to the top of the Lions Rock (it was a Holiday) so we decided not to go there. After that he suggested to drive to an Auyrvedic Center to have a massage and ist was amazing!
    Nuwan knows every corner of Sri Lanka! I really highly recommend to book a tour with him!!!
