      Service with a smile and constantly available on WhatsApp
      My flight was delayed in Dubai and May 2 I contacted Sharon they amended my itinerary and pick me up later. The Same Day without any problem they are available on WhatsApp any enquiries they get back to you within an hour. I definitely recommend this company. I have used them for my last 3 to 4 visits to Sri Lanka from the UK.

      Great jeep safari in Yala National Park
      The driver who met us at the port and took us to meet the safari guide was great. The safari guide was skillful in finding the animals for us to see. We were extremely pleased with the experience from beginning to end. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

      Kandy .. A must too destination
      I am sure it is amazing however having already done Siem Reap etc etc Just about templed out.. The roof however when it shone across the lake was stunning but was shadowed in our opinion by the turtles, Huge Bats, Monitors, Cranes, Egrets Monkeys and Kingfishers in the most amazing TREES surrounding the lake which you can walk around for free... just saying that's all... definitely go here if you can :)

      Temple of the tooth relic Kandy
      This is a very holy place for Buddhists hence it is a must visit for religious reasons, however as a tourist you may not find it worth the money as the temple and important items in the temple are closed and open only for certain intervals of time. When we went around noon everything was closed and we saw scores of pilgrims waiting for the temple to open . As a keen tourist I had nothing much to see except for the external temple building. Additionally the walk from the ticket counter is a short walk however in the scorching sun you may burn your foot as you have to remove your foot wear before entering the temple premises. If you don’t know the correct time when the temple is open then you may want to rethink before going in.

      See Elephants Don’t Ride Them
      Got lucky and had the jeep to ourselves, but sharing wouldn’t have been a problem. Driver had eyes like a hawk and stopped to show us so much. Memorable and peaceful moments alone with wild elephants - best way to see Udawalawe without disturbing the wildlife. Transit Home before or after your visit is a must. £100 per person all in (return taxi from Mirissa included) sounds a lot, but it’s the going rate and good value.

      SRI Lanka tour
      If you like trains, like we do, you should do this train ride, take in all the beautiful sights on the way. You can get snacks and drinks on the train, it does get busy though.

      badly organised and dissapointing
      We received a text the day before changing the time of our trip from 1pm to 8am. not a big problem. They said they would be waiting for us when we got off the ship, they did not say we had to get to the dock gate (approx 5 minute drive). We then sat in bus for 45 minutes whilst they waited for other people presumably who did not have the correct joining instructions. Approx 1 hour drive to destination. If you want to see birds, water buffalo, deer, crocodiles back and an elephant behind bushes this trip is for you. No sign of leopard. The place was rammed with safari trucks. Our driver was good a spotting what we saw.

      Great way to explore Colombo
      We could arrange the Tuk-Tuk safari at very short notice. It was worth every minute. Our driver and guide, Mr Malli, was excellent: he explained well, drive safely and is very very kind. During the tour, which actually lasted longer than scheduled, he took us around many places in Colombo. The tour ended with a tasty Sri Lankan dinner. Many thanks for the great experience.

      Great Animal Spotting.
      Our cruise ship docked at Hambantota and visiting Yala is pretty much the no 1 attraction from there. We had a great experience and saw countless wild animals and birds. After a medium sized bus from the port we were all split up onto jeeps. There are 6 seats in the jeep and we had a jeep on our own with a driver who was good at spotting the animals and pointing them out. His English was limited so sometimes we didn't know what he was saying but it wasn't a problem. Once into the park and after a surfaced section of road it becomes a very undulating and bouncy ride on a network of rough tracks. Getting into the rear of the jeep and coping with the very bumpy ride was ok for us but would not be for older or people with back problems. Would have given 5 stars but our driver lost track of time and we were 45 minutes late getting back to the bus. Not our fault but the other bus passengers were not amused. Would recommend having binoculars to get the best of the day but many animals including elephants were right beside the jeep.

      Amazing! Well done Navee!
      Wow! Just wow! We saw lots of amazing sights, and Navee was absolutely wonderful. 10/10 experience and guide! I have no clue how Navee managed to spot some of the lizards and geckos, but honestly hands down it was amazing. 🥰

      Great Safari with Daruu
      We had a wonderful afternoon safari. Our driver Daruu was so kind and is a very experienced guide who shared his extensive knowledge about the animals with us. Fully recommend him! We were lucky to even see a cute baby elephant :)

      Don’t bother
      All we saw there was elephants and a peacock. About 30 trucks all following one path. When we saw the elephants there were loads of jeeps surrounding them. We saw elephants roaming around outside the park. Save your time and money don’t bother.

      Hotel Ganga Adara Kandy
      The hotel had good location by river side and facilities like swimming pool. The room No. 26 & 27 provided to us were stinking of seepage and stench. Even the room freshner didn't work. Intercoms were not working from rooms to Reception and WiFi was erratic. If you are choosing this hotel avoid rooms in B1 and lower floors. Food served was scanty as the staff was reluctant to refill the dishes.

    My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this class. Getting to pick the ingredients at the market was an added bonus. Very nice family, very fun event. We would definitely recommend doing this for dinner one night in Colombo.
