    The Hello Travel agency where very professional. They organized the trip, booked hotels, arranged the transports and scheduled the visits according to my time of travel.

    Without them I could not see all these places in Sri Lanka within one week.

    Mr Dhanuka took care of everything very well. He advised me through all the necessary documents before travel and took my feedback every day for the convenience of the trip. He was so responsive if I ever needed to change anything in the plan.

    Mr Thushara, the driver and the guide, was best of his kind. He was a gentle, professional, humble driver. He had a tremendous amount of knowledge about the places that he takes me. He explained about the history, traditions, atmospheres, geography,…,etc. He was so kind and very respectful man.

    I definitely recommend them for travel and I will surely hire them again for my trip to Sri Lanka.

    We booked the trip the night before, with good help from the advicor on the site. Our driver picked us up at the hotel and customized the tour for what we wanted to do. The hotels we stayed at was also really nice, with good food.
    We got the most out of the three days and are so happy with our choise. Would definitly recommend!

    We had an amazing trip! Our tour guide, Aaron, listened to what we wanted to do, which gave us a very personalized experience. We were even able to add a safari on to our trip! It was a long day 5a-10p, but Aaron was attentive to our needs, making the experience very enjoyable. We had such a good day that we booked additional tours through Apple Vacations. I would recommend them!

    Our driver was so lovely and new so much about the area. He was really flexible which meant we could spend as long as we wanted to on different activities. The turtle conservation is a must and absolutely amazing to see- they’re doing such amazing work. To be honest every park of the day was amazing and unforgettable. I can’t recommend this tour enough. It’s well worth the money!

    My partner and I booked this class for the last day of our trip to Sri Lanka and it did not disappoint. We really loved the session, the hosts were really friendly and knowledgeable about Sri Lankan food and traditions. We had a lot of fun and were made to feel like old family friends. The food we cooked was delicious and so much of it. We also got a little gift at the end and was welcomed with Ceylon tea. Fully recommend this class.

    I met Shiva at 10am having exchanged a few WhatsApp messages the day before. The tour was great - so many tastings of food ( depends how you count 11 - 20) and in places I would never have found for myself (7) . Shiva was friendly and informative and we went a variety of places.
    Highlights were an amazing samosa ( warm and moist and really tasty) at a popular short eats cafe, strange salty, sour and spicy fruits from a street vendor and the freshly made cassava chips at the market. The guy sliced the chips straight into a wok of oil. We finished the tour in a traditional restaurant where I was made to feel welcome by our lady host. A lovely Sri Lankan adventure.

    This tour was amazing from start to finish. I sent an email to Kingfisher Tours and they immediately responded- answered questions and booked the tour at a very reasonable price. Our wonderful driver picked us up at our hotel at 7am and drove us around for 12 hours. We booked the tour just for the white water rafting, but the company suggested also stopping at a natural spice garden and to an elephant activity place. We were not charged any additional money for these stops (which probably added 5 hours to the day) and only had to pay for admission for the elephant activity- included a photo of our girls who got to ride and get sprayed by the elephants. The white water rafting was fun and we had an extremely friendly local guide with us for the scenic ride down the Kitulgala River- even got a short ride in their TukTuk to get to the river. During March, the rapids are not very high so this was a very easy beginners' course for our two daughters. The scenic views along the river were awesome! I can't thank our driver enough for his patience throughout the 12-hour day and for safely driving the streets of Sri Lanka (which I would not want to do). Highly recommend this tour or any other tour with Kingfisher Tours.

    This tour is an incredible way to see Colombo in just a few short hours. My guide was Sameer and I cannot say enough amazing things about him. He is so knowledgeable about the city and the people that live here. It’s truly impressive. Our tour started at a stunning Hindu temple. It’s unassuming from the outside, but the inside is breathtaking. We also visited a local market where I got to sample lots of fresh fruit and had a tasty king coconut. Seeing the city from the rooftop of a restaurant was stunning as well. I felt like I learned so much on this tour. I truly can’t recommend it enough. I was happy to avoid the touristy side of Colombo. If you’re a solo traveller, this is a really comfortable way of seeing the city. Thank you Sameer for such an amazing day!

    It was a great tour and great experience. Our driver Sanchitha was very punctual, helpful and kind. He helped us a lot at anytime for all our requests. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see ancient side of Sri Lanka.

    Kavithan was a fantastic tour guide - I received a coconut drink on pick-up and chilled water throughout.. I saw all the sites I wanted to see with a 1 to 1 tour of each site by Kavithan.. being a solo traveller this was ideal - I tasted some local Sri Lankan tea and he even provided a sarong to visit the temples - 10/10 private tour of Colombo.. thank you Kavithan!
