Blue Lanka tours were amazing from creating our itinerary to the end of our tour.

I would like to thank Nadi for her patience in helping me create our itinerary and all the changes I needed. She was very quick to respond to all my questions and helped me create a wonderful trip and provided all the information I needed upfront, including her number for any questions or concerns throughout the trip.

Sandamal was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, sites and plants throughout the trip. He really looked after us and ensured we had a great experience on our tour across Sri Lanka. Piyal (sorry but probably spelt that wrong) was our driver who very skilfully navigated all the roads across the country without any maps or apps. He made us feel very safe at all times and supported Sandamal in looking after us to ensure we enjoyed our trip.

The only negative we experienced was the hotels, we booked all 4 and 5 star hotels but they were more 2 and 3 star standards with dirty bed sheets, showers that were unusable, uncomfortable beds, mould in bathrooms and damp smells and insects in the rooms. Also, most hotels were far from town so dinner options were limited when you arrived late to the hotel. I would recommend selecting your own hotels and not relying on partnered hotels suggested.

The first night was really bad and when we contacted Nadi the next morning she was amazing in contacting the hotel and getting the situation resolved. Dinesh even came to see us after this unfortunate start to our holiday which was appreciated.

But when every hotel had issues we just put up with it as we didn’t want to spend the whole holiday complaining and wasting time from our holiday resolving hotel issues. I did check reviews and photos prior to the trip but reality was very different and only 2 of our 9 hotels met the 4 and 5 star standards so would stick to well known brands like Marriott where possible. Amaya lake hotel was also lovely.

We met Nadi and the team in Columbo and they were very open to receiving feedback to improve future services and put on a lovely morning tea for us.

I loved the service provided by Blue Lanka and highly recommend them when planning a trip in Sri Lanka.

Blue Lanka planned a personalized trip for our 2-week stay. Pre- and post-trip communcations were clear and everything went like clockwork.

We have just returned from a 15-day tour of Sri Lanka curated by Blue Lank Tours and from start to finish we were delighted with the profession service they provided throughout.

This tour was organised a few weeks before arrival (eek!) and we contacted Blue Lanka because we had some vague plans of what we wanted to do but we needed guidance from the experts!
I fired off an email on a Sunday AM (out of office hours) and within minutes Reshani emailed us back with further questions of the types of things we wanted to see and do.
A few hours passed and we were supplied with a 15-day itinerary including suggestions for accommodation and prices. Wow!
We decided to visit Sigiriya (Water Garden Hotel), Kandy (Theva residency) , Hatton (Ceylon Tea Trails), Ella (Planters Bungalow) , Tangalle (Anantara Peace Resort) and Weligama (Malabar Hill) .
During the whole booking process and during our visit Reshani was fabulous ensuring everything was to our satisfaction and that we are we happy and safe during our visit…literally nothing was too much trouble and every correspondence/interaction glowed with heartfelt friendliness.

After a long journey from the UK, we were met at the airport by our chauffeur tour guide Sarath who stayed with us with the entire trip.
We were greeted at the airport with flowers and a huge smile which set the tone for the tour.
Sarath was a gentleman throughout the trip, greeting us each day with a smile and ‘ayubowan’
His polite and respectful manner was matched in no small part by his knowledge of his county. At times it was like touring with a scholar, an historian and latterly a friend, the insight we gained into Sri Lanka culture was very much appreciated / enriching and we genuinely felt we saw, and we were immersed in some small part to Sri Lanka life and culture.
It was also very helpful that the plans we had were not set in stone and Sarath showed huge flexibility in accommodating our needs each day depending on how we were feeling from collection times to the details of the itinerary, checking in each day with whatsapp offering help / advice if required.

There were many highlights in trip.
• The paddy fields around Sigirya, the catamaran tour and the cooking course in the local village.
• the view from the ‘Water Gardens’ of Sigiriya Lions Rock, a wonderful resort teaming with Peacocks to greet you on your walks around the gardens,
• the ascent of the Lions rock, not for the faint hearted!
• the jeep safari around Minneriya national park and the elephant herds.
• the ‘Ceylon Tea Trails’ probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in set in a beautiful backdrop of the tea plantations with breathtaking walks around the lake and the tour of the tea factory.
• the hustle and bustle of Temple of Scared Tooth Relic in the heart of Kandy.
• the scenic train ride from Hatton to Ella is stunning.
• The Anatara Beach resorts gardeners who kept us in fresh supply of coconut water!
• the Malabar Hill, the views from the villa of sea and surrounding countryside filled with bustling wildlife and birds and ‘The Shack’ complete with beds on Mirissa beach with a complimentary tuktuk was a great relaxing conclusion to our tour.
• the beautiful fort of Galle bubbling with European influences and lots of shopping and restaurants.
• And our wonderful last night that Blue Lanka had arranged under the stars where we were able to contemplate and reflect and consider the highlights of the trip set sipping on cocktails and enjoying our final curry and rice supper with Watalappan with a dollop of Coconut ice cream! Yum!

Blue Lanka / Reshani you did a very good job in arranging a tour which gave us so many happy memories.

We left Sri Lanka with huge smiles in no small part to Mr Dinesh’s fabulous business (Blue Lanka) clearly founded around hospitality and commitment to providing excellence, Reshani’s dedication, and professionalism and Sarath’s fabulous knowledge and friendly informative nature…. It was sad to say goodbye to them and their beautiful country.

That said, It is highly likely we will return next year and in the words of Reshani big respect and much love, Blue Lanka Tour was a very organised profession tour operator who perfectly tailored our requirements, and we cannot recommend more highly!!

PS for those of you of a certain age….the Duran Duran Save a Prayer on youtube is like a tourist information video for Sri Lanka and the places we visited thanks to Blue Lanka.

There are 3 of us - my husband, our 5 years old son and I who came to Sri Lanka for 2 weeks tailor-made tour. As it was our first trip from Russia to Asia, we decided to have as many helpers as possible). First of all we would love to thank Lashika - our tour-manager. The was in contact on WhatsApp 24/7 - perfect english, wise advices, effective management! After the first week of the vacation our son became ill. We asked Lashika completely changed the programme, the routes, to cancell the booking and make a new one... And so she did with delicacy and good sence of humour. I recommend Lashika as a trustworthy partner who can manage any tasks and always work in the client's interest.
During the trip we had two helpers. Our driver Supun - most smiley person I ever met. Young, delicate, careful driver with very good vibes. And Sath, our guide, who now knows everything about non spicy food, kosher restrictions, russian international medical insurance, fishing... and so many more! Sath is very kind, not indifferent, tireless personal assistant.
We were so lucky we met Blue Lanka travel agency! We definitely will come to this enchanted island. And we definitely will choose Blue Lanka as our travel agency.

My husband and I booked a 8 night tour for our honeymoon with Blue Lanka and could not have been happier with our decision. From first contact with Reshani, our trip planner, we knew we were in good hands. Once on the ground in SL, we were in the hands of our guide, Roshan, who is truly a national treasure. His communication and on the ground handling were superb. His driving skills across while we trekked across Sri Lanka— from Sigiriya, to Kandy, to Ella, to Yala and then to Weligama were more than admirable (and SO safe).

Our excursions were so fun and when my husband and I decided we wanted to skip something to just relax at the hotel, Roshan was more than accommodating.

The hotels recommended by Reshani were AMAZING. Some of the best we’ve stayed in, period. (Book Malabar Hill, you won’t regret it.)

We cannot thank the entire Blue Lanka team enough. We cannot wait to come back to SL and use them again.

I have just completed a 27 day tour with a fantastic guide (Mario i.e.Salila Ranasinghe) and an artful driver (Chathura).Mario was responsive to all of my questions, needs, and gave me an excellent overall understanding of Sri Lanka. He has a broad based wealth of knowledge and eagerly shares it. In fact he behaved as if this tour was the most important thing in his life. Chathura was quite artful as a driver and was consistently kind. I had a wonderful time and would do it all again. Make sure to ask for “Mario” and Chathura! Thank you Blue Tours.
