    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.

    Tharindu was an excellent driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable about where to find the wildlife including the leopards. He also stuck to the lesser tracks rather than the main straight roads that run through the park that are far less scenic.

    Much better than the tour we had the previous day that we’d organised through our high-end hotel (which was more expensive). Recommend morning over afternoon tour although you do see different wildlife and activity depending on time of day.

    If Navin is available, book it! He is an incredible friendly, positive, human person. We started with a 1 day trip through Anuradhapura and decided to add also Wilpattu and Mihintale. All the way through, we could ask anything and had extremely good conversation with Navin. He adjusted the itinerary to whatever we felt like (eg local lunch!). In the end, it did not feel like a guide relationship but rather a friend we met :)

    My two-day visit to Anuradhapura was made much more enjoyable by rajarata tuktuk tours, who helped me avoid being let down. Their dependability, politeness, and commitment to make my vacation exceptional created a lasting impression on my trip memories. I heartily recommend Anuradhapura ancient city tuktuks to anyone looking for an authentic, helpful, and hassle-free experience of Sri Lanka's historical splendor. They went above and above to make my adventures in Anuradhapura absolutely unforgettable. They are a true testament to the meaning of outstanding service.

    The place in the image is not in Anuradhapura (It is on Polonnanruwa),

    You will need at least 2 days to fully coverup the locations. To us it took 7 days + more. Lot of things to see.
    Ancient ruins of kingdoms, sacred places , tanks, and many more.

    Temperature is around 29-32 Celsius. Very cool in the evenings.

    Morning and the evening is the best time to see the ruins.

    Cheap prices on hotels. Around 20- 30 $ per night (Double room)

    An amazing experience with Prebu, thanks a lot for everything! We were looking for somebody who would accompany me and my friend for a few days before ayurvedic retreat, so had just a short time to see as much as possible from the island. Prebu did a very good job, waited for us at the airport with breakfast and homemade cakes from his wife as a surprise, took us to all scheduled locations and arranged also accomodations for the whole trip, which were beyond our expectations. Also made us feel very safe and comfortable, so there wasn´t a need to solve any other issues and we could just purely enjoy the whole trip :) Thank you very much again, Prebu!

    We cannot thank our tour co-ordinator Nilushki and our tour guide Dewa enough for our fantastic holiday. There was such attention to detail around our trip – ranging from a greeting with flowers at the airport, to snacks to keep us going at the safaris – and care shown by both during our time there. I was sick for a day or so during the trip and both Nilushki and Dewa demonstrated genuine concern for my well-being.
    Planning the tour with Nilushki couldn’t have been easier. We used one of their standard tours as a starting point and adjusted according to our interests and the extra time we had available. Nilushki suggested places and activities that we might enjoy - all of them spot on - as well as accommodation, which was outstanding too. She was incredibly flexible and nothing was a problem during the whole process. She even took it to the next level, ensuring our itinerary coincided with annual festivals that we didn't know about. This was particularly so for the annual Buddhist parade in Kandy.
    And our guide and driver Dewa. What can I say? Dewa really made our trip so special for us. He organised all the tickets / passes / accesses for all of our activities, as well as liaising with our accommodation to ensure we were settled in and comfortable. It meant we didn’t have to worry about any of those small but annoying things that otherwise take up time and stress during a holiday. He was our guide on the vast majority of the activities, he cheerily answered any and all questions we had about Sri Lanka (including some awkward ones 😊) and he seemed to know nearly everyone in the country! Everywhere we went he knew people and they were all happy to see him. I take that as a good sign of his genuineness and care. He was happy to oblige any requests we had, was always on time (even early), incredibly friendly and open and enthusiastic about the day’s activities. He was there when we needed him but also gave us the space to enjoy our holiday just the two of us. As he realised our interests whilst travelling with us, he suggested and added in other activities he thought we would like. They were spot on too. Honestly, the perfect guide and companion for our trip. I could not speak more highly of him.
    Whilst I had wanted to utilise a local travel agent for our trip to Sri Lanka – in no small part because I wanted to give my business to a smaller local company, rather than a multinational travel agency – I was concerned about the quality of the service we would receive. Journeyscapes, Nilushki and Dewa completely transformed my concerns by providing such an excellent trip. I cannot recommend more highly.

    We’ve just completed a 12day tour of Sri Lanka with Janaka, our driver/guide.

    From the moment we met to the moment we left to come back home to the UK, our experience with Janaka was great.

    A kind, charming and warm-hearted person that I would thoroughly recommend.

    Despite our flights being severely delayed, Janaka patiently waited for us and got us to our first destination safely.

    He is a safe, trustworthy and reliable driver. Our car was comfortable, spacious, and always kept clean.

    We had pre-planned our itinerary before we arrived and had booked our accommodation. Janaka arranged several great safaris for us. Doing this had benefits vs us booking it ourselves. For instance, Janaka came with us on the private safaris and was able to clearly communicate with drivers. This made for a better experience. We ended up seeing 50 elephants in our trip around Dambulla. And we were pleased to spot a leopard, bear, eagle and many animals at Yala national park.

    Our itinerary was 3nights Dambulla, 1night Kandy, 2nights Ella, 1 night Yalla, and 4nights at relaxing beach locations in the South.

    There were a few days where we didn’t need the car, but having one for the whole trip is very convenient.

    Janaka introduced us to several local fruits, stopped for photo opportunities and gave us suggestions for our itinerary.

    Communication through Whatsapp was great and easy.

    Overall, we had the best experience in Sri Lanka, and would recommend Janaka to anyone. We would love to return one day.

    We had a whole day planned with Lampa and so happy we did! This was such a lovely, fun and educative experience for the both of us. It was interactive, a lot of questions asked back and forth and Lampa shared many stories and information.

    We saw the most important historical places and it was amazing!

    Lampa, thank you so much for the great day we had with you. Your humor is beyond!!

    Warm regards,
    Jorik and Yvonne

    Mahesh took our trip to the next level with his excellent driving skills, knowledge about Sri Lankan culture and food. Made several stops along our three week journey to show us the true Sri Lanka. We ate at local restaurants, he treated us with fruits and vegetables we had never heard of and took care of our daughter as it was his own. He even took care of an infant seat so she would be safe along our trip through the country he loves.

    From the time the team picked us up form the airport till the time they dropped us back we had no issues at all what so ever. Our driver Indika took good care of us and brought us to all the places that we wanted to go to and even stayed with us to make sure that nothing happened, he was not only our driver but our guide as well. Both my husband and I were completely happy with our hassle free holiday and the perfect service !!!
