I spend the best holiday ever. As an alone traveller, I was little bit afraid as I made no planning in advance. However with a professional guide of Ruwan from Go Tours Sri Lanka and amazing support from delegate Věrka from GO2 travel agency, I really enjoyed the island. I got all informations I asked, doesnt matter if history, current situation of botanical names of the trees. The peek of the tour for me was half day I spent with elephant, walking next to him and washing him in the river. Breathtaking experience! I highly recommend both companies, especially Ruwan’s professional attitude and knowledge.

We chose Sri Lanka for our silver wedding anniversary celebration. It was a spontaneous decission although we had not considered this exotic destination before. In the beginning we should state that we could not choose better. We spent eight marvellous days travelling around the nice island, visiting interesting sites and meeting wonderful people. A special role in that paradise played our guide and driver Senarath. He was very helpful and creative companion caring for our contentment and safety. His driving skills in the Sri Lanka traffic are outstanding. Thanks to him we visited all planned sites and even some extras. We can recommend him as a guide to everybody who wish to experience Sri Lanka intensively and, in the same time, comfortably in few days. Now, we also wish him a successful study.

Following all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, my parents and I settled on a private tour with this company. It lived up beyond our expectations!
We were able to customized our tour from the very beginning to suit our interest. Our driver/guide Dammika is truly one of the best that we've encountered in our years of travel. He accompanied us from arrival at the airport til the last day of our trip. Throughout that time, he showed us around, explaining the history and highlighting things of interest. Although we conversed primarily in English in which he is fluent in, we discovered he is also fluent in several other languages! We always felt safe with Dammika although we also discovered Sri Lanka, itself, as a country has been misunderstood in Western media.
Dammika is truly thoughtful as he learned our interests and offered suggestions/ additional activities to further customize the trip. He was so considerate in many ways. For instance, we noticed that he was the only driver who got out of their jeep when we arrived at the safari entrance to bring us to the public restroom which was a good five minute walk away in the dark (most guides simply pointed the direction to their guests). Towards the end of the trip, my mom caught a cold and, even after a week following our trip, my mom received a text message from Dammika asking how she felt. There are so many times that he went above and beyond for us. We had really wanted to take a train ride for Nuwara Eliya to Ella and, although the company attempted to reserve the moment the seats were on sale, the reservations were all full. Yet, Dammika managed to get us tickets on the day off and, with his suggestions on where to sit, we had a breath-taking train journey through the high mountain tea estates! Thank you so much Dammika!! You are truly one of the main reasons we've fallen in love with Sri Lanka. We would recommend you and GoTours Lanka to all our family and friends for their future trips to your lovely country!

We spent 8 days in Sri Lanka over Christmas and we loved the country. Started in Colombo and did a day trip to Galle and then back to Colombo and from there we did Sirigiya, Kandy, Eliya and Ella.

Our driver Dammika picked us up from the airport and stayed with us the entire week. He was fantastic and was very helpful along the way in making itinerary changes where needed ensure that we had the perfect week. Driving can be challenging in Sri Lanka at times but we always felt safe and he did an awesome job. Best of all he managed to get us great seats on the train to Ella. We loved the train ride and was one of the highlights of our stay.

In the US not many people talk about Sri Lanka yet but it’s a beautiful country with great people and we felt safe everywhere we went. Having our own guide and driver for the week made it super easy and we were sad to say goodbye after a week. I’d highly recommend Dammika as a driver for anyone interested in Sri Lanka.

We are so fortunate that we found Ruwan as private guide. From the moment we reached out to Ruwan about our proposed visit to Sri Lanka for 6 days he was responsive about our planned trip. He made excellent recommendations of where to go and what to do in each area and city. Our 6 day tour started with a pick up from Colombo airport by Ruwan. We visited Sigiriya, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy and Ella with our final stop in Unawatuna.Ruwan was a professional, flexible and knowledgeable guide with a fantastic sense of humour.He was always happy to help with a big smile!
We would highly recommend his company for a memorable trip in Sri Lanka!

We spent more than a week in Sri Lanka so we had a chance to see most of the well known places there.
Our driver Manjula was very kind and professional. Even though the traffic was terrible he managed to get us safely to our final destination :-)
Our guide Vera from CK Go2 was very nice and knowledgable - she told us many interesting details about Sri Lanka and local culture.
The whole trip was very relaxed and full of fun.
If you want to explore Sri Lanka without any hassle or issues, Go2 and Go Tours Lanka are the perfect choice. 100 % recommended.

Great country, nature, people, historic sights, accommodation, food, more over professionally and & delivered by our guide Dammika – we had exceptionally good experience.
Mirissa: beautiful beaches with lot of fun (waves); very good safari at Yalla (quite demanding however); Haputale: breathtaking tea plantations (must see !!!); train to Ella (good atmosphere, although our guide gave us more and better to see); interesting tea factory, Kandy botanical garden, and a lot more… Top experience were visits to Budha tooth and Aluvihara temples and a rock fortress at Sigiria.
Big program, but thanks to our guide Dammika we were always informed, comfortable and safe. 😊

Go Tours package of Sri Lanka and Maldives offers the perfect balance of convenience of pre-arranged itinerary, individualized attention to clients wants and needs, and flexibility. The agency takes care of the first, but other two come down to how good is your guide. Manjula is a perfect man for that job: always on time, courteous, friendly, always smiling but takes caring for clients very seriously - he fully owns accountability for happiness and safety of his clients. To illustrate a point: he run to the top of Sigiriya rock and back to look for us when we missed the rendezvous point and he did not see us. If you’ve been there you’ll know that’s quite an exhausting in Sri Lanka’s heat.
He may not have a thorough historical knowledge of the sites but his advice and guidance on local customs and culture more than makes up for it. Google will give you volumes on any historical sites these days but only good guide like Manjula will help you through new experiences like eating Durian :)
In summary: Go Tours and Manjula made our trip one of the memorable of all vacations I took. I highly recommend both.
The only negative was the elephant ride: it made me very sad to see the poor conditions of the chained down elephant. They charge $20 for 20 minute slow walk on the edge of dirty slum and at the end make the elephant go in the water - that is where the ‘glamour shot’ is taken they show to all tourists that make it seem as a happy experience for all involved but the ride left me feeling depressed and guilty. For all the careful planning, I am surprised and disappointed that Go Tours would include this in their offerings. My advice to Go Tours: get rid of it all together or find a service provider that takes better care of the animals and the ride is not taking place in a slum but somewhere in nature.

Overall though: I’m very happy with our experience (minus the elephant ride)

Dear madam, thank you very much for your review and also for your feed back with elephants. However some clients are really interested in that. The place looks like slum, but the real place where elephants sleep and live is somewhere else. Walking around the lake is necessary to do with chain in the case something makes elephant scary, but as you saw, they are not using any chain or sticks with the elephants. We hope that clients has always choice not to go for the riding. Thank you for amazing review for Manjula, he is very nice and good guide. We hope that all your full experience of Sri Lanka was good and you will keep nice memories with you. Best regards Go Tours Lanka team
