Having returned a week ago from beautiful Sri Lanka, i treasure fond memories of the wonderfully friendly people and culture. I travelled with a girlfriend and we were met at the airport by Indika, and his friend Chintaka. From that moment on, we were made to feel exceptionally safe and well taken care of.... and it only got better as we progressed into our 8 day stay. Indika, is one of thee most patient, kind and generous Tour guides I am yet to meet, his sincerity is heartfelt and he goes beyond the call of duty to make one feel at home in his beautiful country. As a tour Guide he provided us with excellent service, always checking in with us to ensure we were ok and if we needed anything. He is very knowledgeable about all the tourist attractions and gave us us good advice when planning the trip. I would highly recommend engaging his services should you wish to travel to Sri Lanka, only because he is genuinely considerate in his mannerism and an excellent tour guide. Thank you Indika and Chintaka for an unforgettable Sri Lankan stay......Best regards Sureya

We just returned from a fabulous 9 day journey through the beautiful country of Sri Lanka. Words cannot express what an amazing experience it was ...and it was only possible due to our incredible guide (Indika) and the driver. Indika was the perfect guide from the time he picked us up from the airport right through to the very end when he dropped us back. He was friendly and warm and did everything with a smile. He went out of his way to accommodate us for the entire duration of our trip. As two girls travelling alone, we felt well looked after and in safe hands.

Indika met us at the airport and we went from Colombo to Kandy, Nuerya Elia, Ella, Tissamaharama, Bentota and back to Columbo. I corresponded with Indika by email before our trip and he booked our accommodation for us. He was very helpful and prompt replying to my emails about this and the itinerary.

Throughout the trip Indika was punctual and reliable. He was flexible when we wanted more or less time in places. He would not leave us until we had settled into each of our hotels. He made it clear we could contact him at anytime in the evenings if we needed something or wished to go somewhere and needed a driver. The van was large and comfortable.

I cannot praise Indika enough. Throughout we found the Sri Lankan hospitality second to none. I would use the service again and recommend to my friends without hesitation.

Just back from our wonderful Sri Lanka holiday and what a great choice we made to go with Indika from Clo Lanka tours. From the first engagement over email he's been responsive, honest and competitive. For 11 days we have travelled with Indika to many great cultural, nature and beach locations staying in 8 different hotels. Indika suggested the itinerary based on our dates and indications and really did nail it. He told us from the start he would be our driver and provide us with experienced guides he works with at the sites every time. He is a great driver and this I say as we travelled with a 5 month baby girl that slept or enjoyed the cruising over hundreds of KMs he was always attentive, responsive and flexible to our requests. Another thing I liked very much is that he never tried to sell us more than what he was confident to offer within his control, so hotels were left for us to book and so were meals though here he did recommend some really great places. He did arrange train tickets in advance four our picturesque ride from Nuwara Eliya to Ella and so he did with all other entrance tickets to sites or activities that required it. He was helpful in providing tips and sharing his opinions and experiences and this made for some very fun conversations. Indika is a very easy going young man, with excellent command of English who talks when needed and never more.
The only "but" is that as a relatively new operator he lacked experiences that a family with a baby would require. And related to this was that the vehicle provided (toyota sedan) was tight in space for our family, though in hindsight we should have requested it when booking the tour.
All in all a fantastic experience after spending 11 days with him and we are very grateful and happy to have chosen him. I would strongly recommend Indika to all travelers.

Ishan Daniel was our driver and we were really pleased with his services.
He was always punctual and patient with us. We went to Sigiriya, nuwara eliyah, yala national park (slightly short though) marissa and colombo. Overall I will recommend the tour and might use them again for a possible future visit.

We, Two couples and three teenage girls had a memorable trip to Srilanka this 1st week of November. Indika ( Clo Lanka tours) is a guy whom you could rely upon completely. I sent him the places that we would like to visit and asked Inthika to provide a programme. I was impressed with his quick response and the options he had given. Tweaking a bit, we have agreed a programme of our entire tour and the package amount. He was prompt to pick us from the airport and was flexible to drop us at the airport even in the late night 11PM ( though most of the other tour operators charge you, if you engage them/driver after 8.00PM).

Inthika arranged national guides in all the places that we have visited and they are knowledgeable in their own field. We could gather a lot about Anuradhapura and its history, evaluation of Buddhism in Srilanka. Inthika is very friendly, most importantly flexible and accommodative ( On the second day after our trip to Sigiriya, we wanted to go to Missiriya National park instead of our scheduled trip to Dambulla. Inthika quickly enquired his local contacts and suggested we better go to Kadualla National Park which was different route ( more kilometer for Clo Lanka tours) from our original agreed programme.).His utmost priority was to make us happy and we were indeed happy to go with his suggestion. What did we see there? Initially a pair of elephant and then three of them. Few buffalos and cows. But as we travelled further down the jungle……Oh! What a sight it was…….We had seen a herd of elephant, not 5 or 6 or 10. Believe me….more than 50, yes, you read it correct. More than fifty elephants in one place at close range, once in a lifetime experience.

As Srilanka is having many more places that need to be explored, I wish I could make another trip to the area which were not covered in our recent trip, of course for sure with Inthika/Clo Tours.

I could tell you, Give Inthika the type of places you would like to visit, rest he will work out( He had arranged fantastic hotels for our stay at Anuradhapura and Kandy). Rest assured you will have a memorable trip.
