Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For a memorable experience, to feel the real Sri Lanka and its wonderful vibe, use Meet Sri Lanka with confidence! Very good drive (felt very safe with a 9 years old kid on board), very friendly driver, good level of English, nice insights about local life. An amazing holiday experience! Thank you, Chamath and Ioana!

Great service, very helpful with modifying the plan of our holiday(great advice with which places to visit) Hemantha and his son are very kind, lovely and polite. They took really good care of us. Holiday in Sri Lanka was amazing and stress free as travel from place to place was easily arranged by Hemantha with all the stops along the way to take countless pictures. Highly recommend Meet Sri Lanka

I was planning to visit Sri Lanka for a while now and since most of my friends have already explored this beautiful country, I decided for a solo trip. Not being used to traveling alone, this being the first time, I had the peace of mind that I was looked after by well trusted professional which is Ioana Luca from Meet Sri Lanka (Sri Lanka Concierge). I had a very long list of attractions I absolutely wanted to see and having only 8 days of vacation Ioana was absolutely amazing at putting together the perfect itinerary considering my budget and everything from by bucket list.
Since I did not have time to find my way across the entire island and take public transportation, Ioana suggested a personal driver, Mr Hemantha, during the entire vacation. Mr. Hemantha was extremely kind, calm, patient and did everything possible to ensure I have a perfect holiday.
I can honestly say that the trip to Sri Lanka was above and beyond my expectations, it was everything I was hoping for and more. And as we all travelers know, you can have a successful holiday only if all logistics are done well, if our plan goes smoothly and if you feel look after. I recommend Ioana with no hesitation for her travel services as she is extremely professional, honest, gives the perfect advises and one of the most reliable people I ever met.

Dear Cristina, I would like to apologize first for replying with such delay to ypur beatiful and detailed review. Moreover, i would like to thank you on behalf of Meet Sri Lanka for your trust and allowing us to be part of your experience. As a solo trabeller myself, i understand how important it is to feel safe and at ease, stress free. After all, the purpose is relaxation for the body and mostly, the mind when one travels. We are very happy we succeeded in creating the conditions for you to enjoy this country and cover your full itinerary. You had 8 intense days,!😊 Thank you for your praises, appreciation for myself and Hemantha and for our travel work, even though we do not feel it as work since we enjoy it so much. We do hope you are keeping safe and you may resume traveling in a not too distant future. We are waiting for you to return to the island one day and see different sides of the same story that is Sri Lamka! Until then, stay safe and cheerful! Ioana Meet Sri Lanka

The first step related to the stay in SRI LANKA was the purchase of air tickets, and the next was the necessary documentation.
During the research, I was recommended IOANA, as a person who can provide the necessary information and organize the entire stay.
Thus, I discovered that Ioana promotes a tourism concept (MEET SRI LANKA) different from what I have encountered so far, with personalized offers, depending on the needs, the time available and the budget of each one, reported of course to what this country can offer.
Thus, Ioana can take care of everything that means accommodations (throughout the SRI LANKA territory) car, driver, tourist attractions, permanent advice during the entire stay, etc.
I would like to mention that Ioana took care of everything the whole stay meant, and the prices were more than reasonable.


The car put on the slide was above our needs and expectations, and the SIRI driver was more than just a driver, but a genuine guide (although he was employed as a driver).

So, for everything that means organizing a stay in SRI LANKA, I recommend Ioana (from MEET SRI LANKA).

We spent 2 days with Chamath as our driver. He is a very nice young man, polite and respectful with good driving skills and an excellent eye to spot wild animals. He did much more than we expected, he even climbed Pidurangala Rock with us before sunrise, he took us to Nalanda Gedige, the central point of Sri Lanka, which is a nice and quiet temple that we didn't know about, he stoped beside a lake so we can watch the sunset, also stoped many times for us to take pictures... We had nice conversations about everything, he answered our questions and shared his knowledge. We highly recommend Chamath as a driver and Meet Sri Lanka to customize your trip.
Thank you very much for everything and best of luck in the future!

Both Hemantha and his son Chamath have driven us during our first 3 days in Sri Lanka. They are both excellent. Hemantha is so knowledgeable and has made really helpful suggestions about where we should visit whilst in the Habarana area. He also helped us find local restaurants whilst we were staying in Habarana. Chamath is a charming young man, and the two days we have spent with him driving us around have been fun. He found us a really good local guide when we needed one. Chamath knows a lot about animals and birds and showed us animals that we wouldn’t have seen by ourselves. I thoroughly recommend both of them as drivers, really nice people to spend time with.

Dear Tracey, Thank you so much for your wanderful words of appreciation for both Hemantha and Chamath. We are truly happy that you had such a good experience while with them, and will make sure both of them are made aware of it and get your feedback. Habarana is a great place which offers so many possibilities of exploration, in terms of nature, wildlife, culture and local interaction. The people are very kind and genuine, and you have met two of them at least in your father and son guiding drivers. We do hope your entire journey in Sri Lanka is a wanderful one and who knows, maybe we will meet again one day! Safe travels, Meet Sri Lanka Team

We spent 9 days in Sri Lanka. If you arrive in Sri Lanka it is a "must" to contact Ioana. With the help of the Meet Sri Lanka concept, you will not have to worry about accommodation, transport or exceptional planning of time spent in this beautiful country. As for transportation, Hemantha is more than a driver. He is the basic man during the trips, punctual and very sociable, it makes you feel like a man of the place, not a tourist. Surely our vacation would not have been so beautiful if Ioana and Hemantha had not been part of it
