    The tour covered all the must see sights and even exceeded my expectations. We had enough free days to explore on our own , making the experience even more enjoyable. I would definitely book a tour like this again

    We had an amazing day on a trip to Sirigiya and Dambulla. We stopped off at temple and Herb gardens in Matale and a Dambulla Gem museum too. It was also great to stop off at authentic food stops that our driver Irfan recommend, which included local Sri Lankan fruits and family run rice and curry restaurant. Amazing!

    Irfan was an excellent driver, who went above and beyond; guiding us and teaching us about then local area. Our day wouldn't have been half as enjoyable without him!

    Easy to book and any question answered via WhatsApp. Pick up from Colombo hotel at 4 a.m. drive to park and back (arrived 9.30 p.m.) safe and on time. We spent 10 hours (!) in Wilpattu so plenty of time to take in the scenery, and wait in a couple of spots for wildlife to show up. This is how we spotted a leopard which took her time to show herself where she hadn't been seen for hours. Many cool birds (i.e. owls, eagles etc.) as well in addition to buffalo, wild boar, elephant to name a few, it was an amazing (long) day. Since I only had a Sunday to do this, next time I would spend a night near Wilpattu and do two full days or 1 1/2.

    Excellent service, we book our ticket very last minute the night before our train journey. Our ticket was delivered to our hotel the same evening! Got straight on the train with no issues and reserved seats. Very good service and response, thanks!

    One of the best excursions we have ever been on our guide was simply exceptional, knowledgeable and could not be faulted in any way. The places we visited combined with his attention and friendly demeanor made this a truly wonderful experience would highly recommend.

    We had a fantastic experience with our tour guide, Janaka. After reading the glowing reviews, we decided to hire him, and we were not disappointed. Janaka exceeded all our expectations with his exceptional service and warm demeanor. He ensured that we were well taken care of throughout our journey, making our visit both comfortable and enjoyable.

    Janaka is not only a skilled driver but also a cheerful and engaging conversationalist. His deep knowledge of the places we visited—Kandy, Sigiriya, and Dambulla—added immense value to our tour. Each site was brought to life with his insightful commentary and stories.

    Our trip was exactly as advertised, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We highly recommend Janaka to anyone looking for an outstanding tour experience. He truly made our trip memorable!

    We have spent 14 nights and 15 days travelling Sri Lanka following our engagement in Dubai for NYE.

    We were warmly greeted at the airport by our guide Dankuka, who stayed with us for the majority of our time. Danuka has been the best guide we could have possibly asked for and without him we certainly would have had a different experience!

    We explored many places including the local villages, temples, safaris and enjoyed some local traditions. All of these whilst feeling safe, being provided with the knowledge we need on where is best to eat, what to avoid and anything we could possibly need.

    Furthermore, Danuka provided a first class service being the liaison with all the different hotels and having each room decorated and with cake for our special occasion. This was very well received and much appreciated.

    Danuka has been an excellent guide, who has known the answers to all of our questions, gone above and beyond (including getting medicine when it was needed!), made a reservations for us and has been a great companion with an excellent sense of humour to keep us company, look after us and make sure we have the best time possible and see the most of Sri Lanka!!

    The extra effort, going above and beyond has not been unnoticed. It has certainly been a trip to remember and without Danuka this would have not been the case - so thank you very much!!

    I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to see the real Sri Lanka and have the expertise and safety blanket of a good quality guide who is also very personable.

    My husband and I had a great time traveling around with our driver, Irfan. We speak English only and he was able to communicate very well and helped us meet many locals. He shared many stories about Sri Lanka, and showed us interesting places. We learned so much! His driving is also very safe and the vehicle was clean and air conditioned.

    What an amazing experience was this cooking class. The Market visit was a very nice way to see a part of the ‘local’ side of Sri Lanka. Back at her home the class was great, tastefull dishes, especially the Eggplant curry was something else!!

    This cooking class should be in your ‘to do’ in Sri Lanka!!
