Just completed 12 days touring Sri Lanka with Indika.
I highly recommend Indika and his company we got to do all we hoped for and more during our stay.
Indika is a fantastic calm and safe driver and the worlds best car parker! He can park anywhere.
My husband and I really enjoyed the comfort of Indika's air conditioned car and we loved the Gold fm playing songs from our childhood as we drove around the beautiful island. Indika can organise everything and we would definitely ask for his services if we were lucky enough to return. Thanks Indika we think your the best.

If you're reading this, you're probably pretty committed to going to Sri Lanka, which you should be, because it's amazing. This was my first "out of my comfort-zone" trip. I went with my friend who had organized everything, and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I felt like a VIP the whole time.

The tour was expertly put together. Indika worked really hard with my friend to create an itinerary which allowed us to see as much of the country as we could in 7 days. He drove us miles and miles (sorry Indika!) while we relaxed in the back, sipping bottled water and chatting. The car was new, clean and had A/C. Indika's driving is fantastic, and his calm nature was evident when navigating a couple tricky traffic situations.

Every day, we would arrange what time to be ready in the morning, and then the day would unfold in a relaxed, but productive way. Indika was always prompt and on time to pick us up, and we were never rushed to finish a tour or site-seeing. We were also never just dropped off at a hotel or a site - Indika always stayed with us until the hotel staff started to check us in, or if at a historical site or tour, until one of his guides met us.

His guides were all incredibly knowledgable, with good senses of humor. They helped us to navigate situations like putting our shoes in storage or paying for tickets. Looking around, I always felt like we had the best guide, especially on the Safari (ours picked the best parts of the road to drive on and seemed to find lots of animals). Indika also ensured that we were prepared for our activities, communicating that a hike might be cold, or ensuring that we took water with us on a hot climb.

Anytime we needed to stop or asked to see something extra, he was accommodating. He also had great taste in restaurants.

While on tour I saw a number of other tours - big busses and massive groups. I was so happy that my friend had arranged the tour with a personal driver. It is absolutely the only way to do it. It is also affordable, if that is a concern.

Being a female and traveling with another female, safety can sometimes be a concern. We picked Clo Tours based on a review by a lady who was traveling solo with Indika. I have to say that I felt 100% safe and relaxed the whole time and would highly recommend him as a guide if you'd like to see Sri Lanka by yourself or with some friends.

Our 5N/6D tour was organised from start to finish with Indika who was also our driver/guide throughout the tour.

Indika arranged for plenty of water and his own accommodation throughout our tour, although some hotels had drivers accommodation available.

We would have booked Indika for our transfers but tried Kanagroo Cabs. Indika vouched they are a reliable taxi operator.
However it would probably have been easier to use Indika.

Places we covered:
Colombo to sigirya,
Sigirya lions rock and ruins,
Dambulla caves temples,
Polunawara ancient city,
Sigirya to kandy
Kandy and Temple of tooth and cultural show,
Ramboda waterfalls,
Nuwara eliya Inc tea factory,
Ravana cave & budha temple, Ravana waterfalls,
Sitarama temple,
Udawale national park Inc evening jeep safari,
Udawale to wadduwa beach.

Colombo we did ourselves as we did transfers independently. However Indika did take us to gangaramaya temple on our way to sigirya in the morning as we'd missed out the day before due to rain.

From the very outset Indika was extremely helpful and fast and efficient with all our enquiries, questions, changes. He helped us to put together an itintery that would allow us to see the best of Sri Lanka in the limited time we had. Getting in city tours, temple tours, temples, caves, and safaris.

Throughout our tour and just before our arrival Indika was communicative and Facebook messaged me, or what's app me to check our plans and ensure we are ok, or anything he could help with. This was really great service, and having hurt my leg and my wife getting a bit sick during our tour it proved really helpful and supportive.

Indika made stops for us to refresh when necessary, stopped at drs and pharmacist to get drugs, and was always helpful with myself being on crutches, and with enduring all luggage is safe and loaded unloaded etc. He is extremely polite and nice.

His car is a great sized large white honda suv (hrv i think in uk). Very comfortable, air conditioned, executive car. Enough space for 2large suitcase, 2 hand/carryon luggage suitcases and but more. We kept a little nap sack and purse in the front.the car is plenty spacious for 2-3 people,possibly a family of 4. However just right for 2ppl with luggage. We had quite a lot of luggage for our 3 wk your of Thailand, Cambodia, Sri Lanka.

We had got a number of quotes from others and Indika was the most reasonable, that covered a lot of places, and arranged for your guides at all the main sites so you can actually learn more about what you are seeing. He was also the only person who was honest about pricing and broke everything down from the outset.

Breaking down various entry fees, the driver / fuel/ transfer costs, and any suggested hotel costs.

He was happy to book everything for us but explained honestly that it would be cheaper and better to book accommodation ourselves. This actually worked out better.

He suggested the best routes and sequence from start to finish and on a daily basis on tour depending on the weather he quickly adjusted itinerary with our consent to allow for weather changes and ensure we see the sites at the best possible time.

In terms of payment i myself preferred to put down a deposit but Indika was really quite relaxed about it all (flexible about payment), he did point out most foreign guests from West wire him money via western union. There is nothing to worry about here, it's really straight forward and Indika is completely trust worthy. Note payment at end needs to be made in SRI LANKAN RUPEES in cash. The prices are only quoted in usd.

The reason i went with Indika I was due to his obvious honesty, good a fair prices, great reviews on TA, and a above all his helpfulness/responsiveness and flexibility a from a the start. He also proved to be really knowledgeable on all aspects of our journey, sites, history and Sri Lanka in general. We also enjoyed talking to him about the UK where he'd lived in the recent past.

I had actually hurt myself and damaged my leg and was on crutches so Indika ensured that i was still able to do what i could and only really missed out on climbing to top of sigirya. At dambulla Indika helped me climb the steps from a new shorter climbing route from the back of the dambulla caves. This was steeper but much shorter and in a way easier. He helped me up all the way, ensuring i had enough space and time to climb.

During our tour Indika was always flexible with any changes we made, yet still ensured we got to see everything and nothing was rushed. He did things at our pace. He suggested best time to visit sites and ensured we had enough time to get breakfasts in the mornings or were able to return to get breakfast.

We were heading to a wedding after our tour, and Indika ensured we left at a good time and although the more scenic route that had originally been suggested would have been nicer due to our schedule being tight, Indika took a faster route for us via highway by our request which knocked a lot of time off our journey and was still really nice and scenic. Maybe hugging the coast would be nicer as we did some if this as we approached wadduwa but it was more important for us to be on time.

I can't recommend Indika and CLO LANKA TOURS enough. Please don't hesitate, read the reviews ... This is a great company and great guys. All the best for the future.

@Indika - apologies it's taken me so long to write the review (3wks+) ... Thanks for a wonderful tour and we will be recommending to friends and family, and when we visit again we will most definitely be in touch.

My family with young children went to visit Sri Lanka during school holidays and Clo Lanka Travel helped us to arrange various trips there.
Indika's knowledge about the areas we visited was very high which made our trips quite educational as well. He explained us about the importance of places and even introduced some local shops where we could experience lovely local food and also could do local shopping for reasonable prices.
As I was travelling with kids, the safety has always been on top of my list. Indika was a very safe driver and all the time he was checking if my children were ok during the drives.
Overall I was very happy with Clo Lanka Tours and I would recommend them to anyone.

We had the most wonderful time in Sri Lanka because of Indika at Clo Lanka Tours.We only had a few days for our visit and he put to getting a great itinerary for us to see the highlights. To his credit, it probably made for a much more rigorous driving schedule for him but each day you would not ever think that. He was so personable and thoughtful making sure everything was right for us. He speaks English beautifully and is happy to talk about the places you go to or had a guide for other sites.
I highly recommend this company and Indika!

The tour we had in Sri Lanka with Clo Lanka Tours was very good. Our guide "Indika" was very kind, gentle, organized & cooperative. We had visited lots of places and did acitivities (all what was planned and more) in somehow limited time (thanks to Indika who was always there on the agreed time). The car (new) was very good and clean. Arrangments with local guides (including peronnel,safari vehicles, rafting equip. etc...) were all made by our tour guide prior to our arrival at related sites, hence, hadn't to wait and waste time. Thumbs up Clo Lanka Tours & Indika :))...Highly recommended if you are planning to visit Sri Lanka.

Me and my wife decided to go to Yala national park, and for our convinience we hired a driver from Clolanka tours. Our driver Indika, showed up at the agreed time at our hotel, and showed us to his nice and very comfortable Honda. It was a long drive, but still he managed to not use the horn one single time, which is pretty unusual in Sri Lanka.

Indika spoke a perfect english and was very knowledgeable every time we had a silly tourist question.

We can definately recommend Clolanka to anyone who visits Sri Lanka.. Their prices are also better than a lot of the competition.
