From start to finish, Tangerine Tours and our designated driver Srinath delivered a top quality and thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We opted for the Heritage Explorer and added four days on at the end in an amazing hotel. Sankha was fantastic in answering lots of emails, adapting the itinerary to suit us. We had two options initially; 3* hotels or 4 and 5*. We opted for the latter and were not disappointed.

Our tour guide and driver Srinath was a gentleman. Nothing was too much trouble and he was available whenever you needed. He had lots of good advice and knows the country like the back of his hand.

Sri Lanka is a wonderful country. The people are amazing, they are genuine and so friendly. We felt completely safe day and night and if you are unsure whether to go then don’t hesitate.

It is our favorite place to visit and we will be back.

Thank you Sankha and Srinath for giving us an amazing experience.

We visited Sri Lanka through a tour organized by Tangerine Tours. The tour agent that I dealt with was Sanka, and he was excellent. He was prompt to all emails, responded to all requests and set up a really great trip for us. I'd highly recommend him and his company!

My wife and I visited Sri Lanka for the first time. Our tour was professionally organised by Sankha Ranadheera of Tangerine Tours. We had an excellent and knowledgeable English speaking driver called Sunil who met us at Colombo Airport and drove us to Negombo where we stayed in a cottage on the beach at Club Dolphin. We travelled next morning to Sigiriya and stayed in a beautiful Resort called Aliya, where we enjoyed the excellent buffets and breathtaking views. The staff were so helpful and kind. From there, we stayed at Theva Residence, on a hill overlooking Kandy. The views were outstanding and we were well looked after. From Kandy, Sunil drove us to Nuwera Eliya. We took the train (2.5 hours journey) to Ella . We stayed two nights at 98 Acres with stunning views of Little Adam's Peak and the tea plantations. Finally, our last stop (2 nights) was at Taru Villa, Rampart Street in Galle with only 4 superior bedrooms and excellent decor throughout. The staff looked after us so well.
From Galle, Sunil drove us on the highway to Colombo Airport.
We were sad to leave Sri Lanka a wonderful place to visit with so many World Heritage cultural sites. The place is clean and the people are very friendly, warm and welcoming. We shall definitely visit Sri Lanka again. Thank you so much Sankha and Sunil for organising such a wonderful tour for us.

We planned our Srilanka tour with Tangerine tours Pvt Ltd.Our tour guide was Mr Sankha Ranadheera.Mr Sankha had meticulously customised our tour plan as per our requirement s.Even he managed to arrange a joyride in train from Nuwara Elaya to Ella.
Our driver Mr Salinda was extremely polite and well groomed.He helped us a lot in each and every situation.They provided us with star class hotels in all the locations.The only glitch occured was in Ella in which the hotel(Hotel Mount Heaven) was not as per our expectations.On conveying the matter to Mr Sankha he changed our hotel on the very next day.
It was a memorable trip and we enjoyed a lot.
Thanks a lot Mr Sankha and of course Mr Salinda.

On the recommendation of a Sri Lankan friend of several decades, who travels back home annually, Leon from Tangerine Tours organised our personally-escorted tour of Southern Sri Lanka. Our driver, Milton, was excellent in all aspects - courteous, punctual and friendly. Everything went like clockwork and at a very competitive price. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Me and my wife visited the beautiful island of Sri Lanka during the 2nd week of Dec for 6N/7D.

Since it was a last minute trip, I wanted to go with a local Tour Operator instead of planning all by myself.

Thankfully I came across Tangerine Tours and went ahead with them.

Starting from planning of the trip till it ended, everything was near perfect.

Our travel executive, Mr. Sankha, was great in helping us chalk out an itinerary and providing one of the best hotels. His communication was prompt. We were happy with the overall pricing also. He was always available on whatsapp/call.

The Chauffeur that was with us during the entire trip, Mr. Roshan, was very nice and knowledgeable. We never felt the need of any guide. He was very helpful, welcoming and ever smiling. Car condition was excellent. His driving was also top notch and very responsible.

Tangerine is a very reputed brand across all the places we visited. They have good contacts with the service providers which ensures that you won't be cheated or overcharged at any of the sight-seeing points. In-fact, you can only expect some great services at these places and the Hotels :)

I would definitely recommend Tangerine Tours to anyone who plans to visit Sri Lanka to have a hassle-free and enjoyable trip.

Keep up the good work team !!

Thanks
