I came upon Blue Lanka Tours here in Tripadvisor. Dinesh responded to my email query within 12 hours. It was my first time to Sri Lanka and I was to travel alone to meet my family in Sigiriya. Safety and comfortable travel was my first priority and Blue Lanka Tours exceeded my expectations. Isuru was polite, punctual, helpful and informative (including the impromptu birdwatching along the way). This was a personalised trip and Isuru drove the whole day so we could see the Lion Rock at Sigiriya in the morning and get to Galle by 8pm for a wedding next day! The Colombo tour has simple local flavour as we roam through the city visiting the parliament house, independence museum, civil war memorial, with a pleasant surprising performance of street dogs trained by an elderly man! Blue Lanka is highly recommended, keep up the good work!

Just returned from Sri Lanka and had an excellent few days of touring with Blue Lanka. Dinesh & I formulated the itinerary by email before I landed in Sri Lanka and they collected me from my hotel and took me to all the places on my list: Kandy, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Elephant Orphanage etc as well as a day tour of Colombo.

The cars (minivans) are comfortable and air conditioned and it was nice that they had thought of providing bottles of water.

The drivers were friendly, polite and extremely knowledgeable about everything they showed me. They also organised all the entrance tickets and guides to the various places.

I shall certainly use the company again, when I next visit Sri Lanka and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering a visit.

Also, despite the fact I was doing this tour on my own, the price was very reasonable, something which is a rarity these days.

This is our first trip to Srilanka, so we didn't know where to start with. We found Blue Lanka name from Trip Advisor website and we started to contact Dinesh. We only gave him our travel date and the type of accommodation we wanted to stay and he came up with a very nice itinerary. We were a bit worried at first as we had to pay some deposit. However after we checked with other travelers who had used Blue Lanka tour service, they all highly recommended us to use Blue Lanka. When we arrived at the airport, both Dinesh and Isuru were there and after that points onwards our worries had gone. We enjoyed every hotels that Dinesh and Isurua arranged for us. Our tour leader was Isura and his ervice was excellent. We disvovered Srilanka in a short space of time. If we have a chance to visit Srilanka again, we will definitely use the service of Blue Lanka Tours.

we wanted a guided tour of Colombo and I mailed several companies. 2 responded but only Dinesh took the trouble to answer all my questions. He arrived at our hotel on time. The vehicle he provided was safe (with seat belts!) and comfortable. He gave us a very enjoyable and informative tour of the city and even helped us to get our tickets for the cricket the next day. We then decided to ask Dinesh to arrange our transfer to Galle which he did very efficiently. We asked to see some sights on the way which were very interesting. He even called me 2 time while we were en-route to Galle to ensure everything was OK. I could not fault Dinesh for his attention to detail. He is a nice man too, as he gave my son a cricket bat as a present! Thanks Dinesh!

I had an excellent experience with Blue Lanka Tours when I visited Sri Lanka recently-- July 29, 2013. Dinesh organized a one day tour on very short notice accommodating my last moment whims about trying Kayaking at Samanalawewa Reservoir in Sabaragamuwa province easily accessible from BELIHULOYA (near Ratnapura) 150 km south east of Colombo..

After a five hour drive (200 km) from Kandy with Sudesh's pleasant company, I had a memorable experience kayaking with a guide on the Samanalawewa Reservoir. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. After a very tasty lunch at the Rivers resort we drove 4 hours back (150 km ) to Colombo. I capped off my tip with a superb sea food dinner at the Lagoon Restaurant at the Cinnamon grand hotel in Colombo.

All in all a wonderfully pleasant experience. THANK YOU BLUE LANKA TOURS. I will definitely come back and see more of your beautiful country with your help.
