Excellent tour operator, gave us very good advise, good organisation, very available during the preparation of our trip in Sri Lanka. They have chosen good and excellent hotels, we had a good car and the perfect driver/guide. If you want to travel in Sri Lanka pass through Blue Lanka Tours - you will get a VIP - service.

Wow. We absolutely LOVED the tour that we booked with Blue Lanka Tours. Very thorough, very professional and prompt. I was trying to put together a trip for my mother's birthday and we only had limited time and odd hours that we could do a tour and the staff was very accommodating. Setting up the tour was a breeze. I just had to tell them what I wanted to do and the time frame and they were able to work everything out, including overnight accommodations. Our driver Mendhi was the best! Very funny, personable and the perfect gentleman. He was with us the entire day and helped us with whatever we needed. He was also very patient and accommodating and patient when we were taking up too much time at the attractions. lol. I highly recommend him personally. We also got very cute coffee mugs! Thanks so much. I have nothing bad to say about this company. ALL GOOD! Dinesh even called to make sure everything was going smoothly and that we were happy.

Anura picks us up at the airport in Colombo and was a great driver and guide for us during our trip. We have two boys, 7 and 9 years old. Anura was always very nice to our children. The tour was developed by Dinesh and us via email. Dinesh was great at changing the itinerary after our comments. We really enjoyed our time in Sri Lanka.

We (husband, parents and 10yr old daughter) visited the beautiful island of Sri Lanka between Aug11th-Aug20th.

All our enquiries via e-mail were dealt with efficiently and professionally by Mr Dinesh Perera and team.
We had done our own research and also took their advice and decided on Colombo-Sigiriya-Kandy-Nuwara Eliya-Uda Walawe-Yala-Galle-Colombo.

It was alot of travelling but we were thoroughly looked after by our wonderful guide Janaka.
Janaka was always smiling and answered all our (sometimes annoying I'm sure!) questions.
They had hired us an external minivan and driver, the van was air conditioned and the driver Jayasuriya was so easy going.

We could stop for rest and photo opportunities wherever we wanted to and amend our itinerary at any time, we were really made to feel special.
They went above and beyond duty in so many ways, when my father mentioned he had a bad back they drove him to an ayurvedic massage place after a long day of sightseeing.
When my daughter had an upset tummy, they requested one of the herbal spice gardens to make her up something to settle it (and it really worked!).

We had requested 4-5 star hotels, and they were all beautiful, we only wish we had more time in every place.
If I could give any more stars I would, if you are looking for a tailor made holiday of any sort to Sri Lanka just book with this company.
Thank you all at Blue Lanka, all the family sends their warmest regards. Hopefully we can come back soon!!
