    I'm really not exaggerating but this three-day itinerary is fully packed with incredible experiences and activities! What really sets this trip amazing is how accommodating, punctual, hospitable, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and helpful my guide is, Buddika. Thank you ever so much and you made my trip to Sri Lanka an experience I will never forget. Indeed m second's favorite destination from all countries I've been to. Never had a dull moment even those long drive, you'll learn more about the local culture, traditions, religions, and foods. The enthusiasm of Buddika in making sure you don't just learn something about the country but rather experience them on your own. It was really convenient even the hotels we stayed in Ella and Kandy were really good they served really good breakfast and dinner too. I must say, I, for sure will return in Sri Lanka for more. The humility and kindness of every local people I've met imprinted beautiful memories in me. Highly Highly recommend! You need more than 4 days.

    It’s probably cheaper to Uber and do all this stuff. Like half the price so $60
    Don’t rent a car and do the drive unless you’re from somewhere where they drive on the UK side and or are from a crazy driving country like Sri Lanka

    But you get a guide that knows English very well and knows the area so there is value in that as whatever you’re looking for he knows it already

    John was my driver and we took a car which was nice as it’s usually a slow bus so things were done faster than usual.

    Everything I wanted to do we got done and got done safely

    Our holiday rep booked a safari day for us before we left England. It was an absolutely fantastic day out we hadn’t realised it was a private tour just for us so that was a bonus. Sam the manager rang us the evening before we went to confirm times and drivers name. We had Dinesh who was amazing he picked us up at 5 am and we got back after 6 pm. He pointed out lots of interesting facts on our journey too. We decided we would go to Galle the following week so messaged Sam to see if we could book same driver and not do everything that was on the list and it was no problem. We did Galle fort then silk factory and tsunami museum which was all very interesting. We stopped to have some lunch on the way back to hotel. Would highly recommend this company. If we come back to Sri Lanka again will certainly be using them.
    Thank you very much Sam and Dinesh

    To start off, Ferose, from Kingfisher tours, drove me there all the way from the airport.
    This place is amazing, I fell in love with it as soon as I had my eyes on the rock, from far away. Climbing all the way up was nice and easy, a few slippery steps (It was raining) but nothing that a bit of precaution wouldn’t cover.
    The top is even better, much larger thn I expected. So many beautiful views!
    I definitely have to go there again under a good weather !

    Henry organised our 7-day tour as per our itinerary. We loved every bit of it. Our driver and guide, Laal, was friendly and very knowledgeable about Sri Lanka. He even took us to a few places which weren’t on our itinerary. Visiting Blow Hole in Kudawella and Ramboda falls via the Ramboda falls hotel was a memorable experience.

    Henry also arranged our safari at Yala national park, where we had a great time seeing a wide range of birds and animals (Leopard, Sloth bear and Elephants .

    We didn't have inconveniences during our trip, even with the current fuel crisis. Henry was able to secure the required fuel for our entire tour.

    If you want to experience Sri Lanka, I suggest you reach out to Henry for a memorable tour of Sri Lanka!

    From the outset, the communication with Prasad at this tour company was exceptional. There was always a quick reply and detailed information via emails. The prices on TripAdviser were mostly for couples. As a solo traveller, Prasad tailored and costed a private tour based on exactly what I wanted to see.

    My driver + tour guide picked me up at 6:30am from my hotel in Colombo City Centre and we headed off to see the Dambulla Caves/Temple, Sigiriya - we climbed Pidurangala Rock as it’s not as touristy. I recommend this as it’s great to take pictures of Sigiriya from this view point. Finally, we headed to Hurulu Eco Park for a safari to see elephants and some other animals in the wild (mainly eagles and peacocks). This was so much fun riding in the pre-arranged jeep and getting up close to so many different sized elephants in natural habitat.

    It took 3.5hrs from Colombo centre to reach Sigiriya, then 4hrs to get back to Colombo, as we departed at 4pm and got caught in traffic through many of the towns. So I was out 6:30am and back at my hotel by 8pm. I only had one free day and I feel this set of activities and sites was perfect for a full-day activity.

    Another highlight was my guide taking me to several side markets to drink fresh King Coconuts, cut right in front of me. We did this twice; we also bought some mangoes and the famous red bananas to eat roadside. It was a nice touch and I didn’t even need lunch.

    Professional tour company, highly recommend!

    Kavithan was very kind and knowledgeable. Great tour of the city, perfect stops along the way to get a feel for the city. No hidden fees, and great service. Lovely way to spend a few hours!

    It was an amazing trip to Galle. My driver and guide Kheerti was very accommodating and very punctual. Guided me to places where you can take great photos and away from the crowd. Overall, it was really a pleasant and amazing trip. The convenience, itinerary, scenery are all well organized. I highly recommend booking with them especially if you're just on a transit flight.

    Honestly, My partner and myself cannot recommend this tour and the tour guide himself enough. I'm a chef back in England and so experiencing real authentic street food was high up on our list of priorities whilst in colombo. We were spoilt by the variety and quality of the dishes we experienced throughout the 4 hours we were on the tour. From the fresh King coconut drink you are given at the start of the tour to the educational talk and tea tasting there we were constantly surprised with the experience at every stop along the way. The Tuktuk it's self is very clean and our guide provided us with snacks, water, napkins and hand sanitizers. I'd personally also recommend the later tour as the tuktuk is convertible giving you the chance to stand up and really take in the sights. Our tour guide was super friendly, informative and helpful and made us both feel so welcome in this beautiful country, Our only regret is that we did not catch his name!
    All in all fantastic value for money, an amazing experience that I think everyone who has the chance should try.

    We had a great tour with Gajaba, who took excellent care of us. Communication before and during the tour was very good. Gajaba was making sure that we had a good time. Thank you!

    As mentioned in the description of the activity, the entrance fee to Sigiriya is not included, so be prepared to spend 30$ per person for that. A guide in Sigiriya is optional and costs 15-20$. The village tour is an additional 15$ per person, the lunch however is included but you might want to tip here and there.

    We arrived happy and full of new impressions at our hotel at around 6pm.

    We explored Colombo, visiting the lotus tower, markets, multiple temples, historic buildings, and
    several sweet shops before finishing with lunch at a local restaurant opposite the ocean. The
    lunch was amazing. It was authentic Sri Lankan cuisine cooked using local spices. Apart from
    being spicy we really enjoyed the food.
    Our tour guide tailored the tour to our interests. He was also kind and patient enough to take
    some amazing photos of us while we were traveling. I highly recommend taking their tour as you
    can customize the trips as you wish. And they are always ready to help

    Despite a lot of rain that afternoon, we had a great tour around Colombo, seeing many interesting places like different temples, town hall and market place, enjoying some typical street food & having lots of fun. Many thanks again to Dinuka for showing us around!
