  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Nim was an excellent guide and cooking instructor. I had an absolutely mazing experience! I’m a professional chef myself and learned about so many new techniques, spices, aromatics and traditional cooking. He was a wonderful host in his kitchen and really enjoyed learning about this beautiful country and customs.

    I highly recommend attending a tour and class. You won’t be disappointed!

    Ajeet is everything you would wish in a guide. Charming, knowledgable and responsive to your interests and requests. This tour was a great introduction not only to Colombo but to Sri Lanka in general. Great experience!

    I highly recommend Agate travel for Sri Lanka, they are a very professional, patient, knowledgeable and friendly and better quality than most of the popular American and European travel agencies in my opinion that offer the same quality at a higher price or the same price at a lower quality. The hotels were all 5 star and the food was delicious. I never felt unsafe nor did I have any food problems. The food was delicious and the fruits were divine especially the pineapple. There is plenty of vegetarian or vegan food for you if you have dietary restrictions. The guide and driver were polite, professional and knowledgeable. Sri Lankans in general are very friendly and always have a smile on their faces. If you love elephants, Sri Lanka is the perfect country to visit!

    Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and with Agate travels, you can experience and see this beauty. Sri Lanka is a top 10 country for me thanks to this agency. The only bad thing about my trip was it was too short, I wish I stayed longer in this tropical paradise but I had few vacation days.

    We had an excellent walking and street food tour with Sri Lanka Day Tours. We picked the evening tour and I think it’s the best pick out of the two options. We did this tour after a 14 day Sri Lanka exploration and was thinking we have seen it all. We are so glad to be proven wrong. We saw completely different aspects of the country by doing this. We highly recommend this tour.

    15 days on land touring Sri Lanka and two night excursion to Maldives. Had our private bus for 8 with excellent driver, tour guide, and his assistant. Always polite, smiling to greet us, dependable, and our tour guide shared his vast knowledge of the countries history. Toured Buddhist temples, ruins, stayed in five star hotels, ate our way through the country with incredible buffets presented beautifully,. Received relsxing massages after a long and physically challenging day. Train ride through countryside viewing acres and acres of tea estates . Family parties arranged complete with catering, bands, and dancing. We were blessed with sunshine and a few welcomed showers. Time of year to travel there was very good. Day with rescued elephant to bathe, feed, ride and receive shower from was a highlight. Snorkeling in turquoise waters with white coral beaches was over the top enjoyable.
    The Sri Lankan people were gracious, kind, and had the most beautiful smiles. So much more to share but will wrap it up with highly recommending Detroves for a fabulous travel tour experience! Adios from Texas, USA.

    It was very crowded and so challenging since it was weekend and school holiday. But the view is amazing. I would do it again and again. Just in crowded days, I would start like 12 p.m or even earlier in order to catch the sun rise on the top. There are ques on the way and sometimes you have to wait more than an hour.

    Fantastic tour which took us all over the city. The guides were very professional and even went out of their way, going way over the scheduled time, to show us more than what was on the itinerary . Money well spent.

    The trip was for 7 days and we decided to book a car so that it's easier to commute anywhere at any time. We booked through Casons travel and Fernando was our first point of contact. He patiently answered all our questions and assigned Saman as our driver. Saman knew all the best places to visit and was very courteous throughout. It was indeed a game changer travelling with him and overall a beautiful experience in Sri Lanka.
