  • 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.

    Right from the word go Maleen was flexible, knowledgeable, and was not watching the clock. One of the things that we wanted to do in particular was to go to one of the colonial hotels and enjoy a drink and perhaps a curry, Maleen knew the place and delivered exactly as we wanted. He delivered a wonderful and memorable day for us and we left Colombo with the feeling that at some point we must come back and discover more of this country. I cannot praise Maleen enough, he was excellent.

    Tangerine Tours arranged a 14 day road trip all around Sri Lanka. We had Toyota Coaster mini bus pick us up at Colombo Airport and drove us around Negombo, Anuradhapura, Jaffna, Trincomalee (Thirukoneswaram Temple), Habarana (Sigiriya Rock Fortress, Polonnaruwa ancient city, Dambulla Rock Cave Temple, Eco Park – Elephant Safari, Cultural Show), Kandy (Peradeniya Botanical Garden, Temple of Tooth), Nuwara Eliya (Ramboda Falls, Tea Estate, Sita Amman Temple, High Tea at Grand Hotel), Ella (The scenic train ride from Nanu Oya to Demodara & Nine Arches Bridge), Yala (Ravana Falls, Kataragama Temple & Yala National Park Safari), Tangalle, Galle and dropped us back at Colombo Airport.

    Tangerine Tour executive Gayandika helped promptly to prepare our itinerary and accurately customized it to our expectations. He has made all the arrangements to make this a smooth and memorable trip. We drove around with English speaking tour guide Malcolm, who was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable and helpful to us. The driver Nayan is a safe driver who took extra care on the road covering around 2500 Km. We also had a helper Wijesiri take care of us in and out of the bus and then manage the luggage at each destination. Overall, this is a memorable trip that we would highly recommend Tangerine Tours to all interested in visiting the beautiful country Sri Lanka.

    Tharaka is the best and most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever had. He was very punctual, flexible and helpful and he adjusted the tour based on my likings. He shared with me so many interesting facts about the country, the local religions and traditions. If you are visiting Sri Lanka, this tour should be on the top of your list!

    It was an amazing experience to travel with Mahaweli company! We are delighted to discover the best treasures of Sri Lanka with them!
    We were able to see amazing locations and live trough various cultural experiences and all the time we were surrounded by the care of our guide that make this trip relaxed and comfortable.
    I’ve been to more than 60 countries already and planned many different trips and I would never be able to plan trip in Sri Lance better than our company did for us.

    Ahilan provided an outstanding service, showcasing impressive knowledge of historical sites. His communication skills were excellent, and he patiently guided us through Colombo. We created wonderful memories, and captured great pictures of my partner and our tuktuk driver. Ahilan is an amazing person, and I highly recommend him for a valuable and memorable experience that is well worth the investment. Thank you!

    The best travel agency Go Ceylon Tours helped us a lot with the design of the tour itinerary. It was a big help as ours was a last minute trip and we didn't have much time for research or preparation. They replied our emails quickly in a very friendly and efficient way proposing alternative visits along the route. You need to be aware that in Sri Lanka distances are not big however travelling by car takes a really long time due to the roads and traffic facts that googlemaps doesn't take into account. Overall it was a perfect 8 days trip around Sri Lanka thanks to our chauffeur Madusanka. He is very professional, knowledgable and an excellent driver and we really recommend him if available. Thank you very much again and again.
