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.

    So it's only fair I start this review by praising how amazing our driver and tour guide Nishantha (Nish) Was. he made us feel so comfortable throughout our entire tour, he was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and really went out of his way to make sure we were happy with what we had done each day. He was always on time  and we felt very safe with his driving as you may or may not know drivers and tuk tuks in Sri Lanka are pretty crazy and Nish was very relaxed and in total control.

    He also took us to places that weren't on the schedule which he called Nish's highlights and he seemed to know everyone lol and everyone seemed to really like him which made us feel entirely safe.

    On our last day for drop off at our hotel that we had booked not through the tour company and the hotel was to say the least not very welcoming and dirty so Nish drove us to a new hotel which we knew with no quibble and sorted out on our behalf with the hotel for none payment.

    We feel we've made a friend in Nish and will definitely us him again whenever we return to Sri Lanka.

    So onto the hotels, each hotel was clean and the food was good no upset stomachs which was good, we opted for the moderate hotels package and we booked quite late so some of the original hotels that were quoted were full but beauty Lanka travels found some very nice alternatives 

    The only issue we probably would say was that the hotels were very quiet with no evening entertainment but to be honest we were quite tired each night so we would chill in our room after dinner.

    In fact one hotel we stayed at we were the only 2 people in the whole hotel staying there but the whole staff made us feel very special and the food was amazing.

     

    So now On to the tour itinerary and company itself to be honest I can't fault beauty Lanka travels for what they provided the attractions where varied and well spread out, each day was definitely full and you can adjust anything you want or don't want to do 

    Me and my wife really wanted to see and do the ambuluwawa tower (which we highly recommend) so Nish just cut out another part of the tour to accommodate so we could 

    To make you aware the tour is quite tiring as it's quite early starts and late finishes

    And you are checking in and out of hotels every day so you dont really get to use the hotel facilities much.

    If we was to do another tour we would prob have it so we have break days especially at Ella ( which is lovely) and the last stop at the beach resort

    But overall very good company to deal with and they provided everything that was offered.

    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.

    Our tour operator Chathura was very kind and helpful.
    We took trip from Nuwara Eriliya with overnight in Kandy to Sigriya. Chathura always did his best and showed us interesting places on our way.
    Just one small disadvantage is English barrier/for ordinary things there is no problem.
    Chathura is improving English every day so it will be just better.

    I can fully recommend it.

    With Navin’s guidance we saw and did more than we could have done otherwise. We saved $$$ by using his contacts and experience to go to sites and to book things such as cooking class in the village, safari tours and local restaurants - much more expensive using the hotel offerings as we stayed in luxe.
    Navin was at all times reliable, polite and willing to do anything to make our day more enjoyable - for example when our energy levels, the weather or a change of heart meant we wanted to do more or less or something else - he facilitated it without ado.
    Do think you need to think carefully about Knuckle Mountains. It’s is leech infested, and the scenery and experience was not worth the consequences!
    Suggest you check with Navin at the end of each day what type of clothing is needed for the next day’s outing - Navin can assist and ensure you do not inadvertently offend sacred site standards.
    While activities are usually planned as 1/2 day, enquire about how long it takes to get there and back, as that helps you know how much down time at the accommodation you will have to enjoy.
    Navin knows great places to recommend - obvious must sees as well as more hidden gems and he uses his contacts very well to tap into.
    In summary we felt at the end of our fortnight with him that we gained a friend. His devotion to Buddhism comes through in his gorgeous approach to people and to life. He’s a lot of fun too. We have so many selfies as evidence!

    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.

    We had an absolutely amazing time on this 6 day 5 night trip. Janaka our driver/guide was so helpful friendly and informative that time just flew.
    We had 2 nights in Kandy, 1 in Nuwariya Eliya, 1 in Ella and 1 in Bentota. All of the hotels were of a very high standard and with delicious breakfasts.
    The variety of activities and sights over the 6 days was varied but we particularly enjoyed the trek up to Sigriya, the train journey and our evening in Ella, and the boat safari through the mangroves and islands near Bentota.
    If you are considering this trip, I can only say "just do it"

    My friend and i just returned from the most mystical week in Sri Lanka, and I can't express gratitude toward OTN World Company enough! This was totally THE most flawlessly arranged trek of any we'd at any point taken. I know for sure (from perusing internet based life posts of numerous other people who have been to Sri Lanka) that we saw more in our 6 days there, got familiar with its way of life, history, and got a lot all the more stunning pictures and saw progressively "mystery spots" than most by far of sightseers who visit the nation, and I couldn't be increasingly satisfied.

    I really enjoyed the right amount of information I got during the trip. All my special requests were solved very quickly, in few seconds the team understood what I need, and they tailored the program accordingly. Everything was as it was previously planned. No delays, no compromises in the quality of the contracted services. The recommended hotels were above the expectations, but tailored according to my budget. I reccomend them not only to mu friends, but to other tourism agencies, as a good partner.

    Our trip to Sri Lanka was one of our best trips ever and the experience was really elevated by our wonderful driver Mr Laal and the great organisation before and during our trip by Merganser Holidays. We were a party of two couples and months before the trip we put together a list of boutique hotels we would like to stay and also places we wanted to visit. We booked all the hotels but Merganser arranged everything else for the trip.

    Merganser was able to work with us and they helped put together an itinerary.

    When we arrived in Colombo airport after an overnight flight from London Mr Laal was there waiting for us and our adventures began!

    We started with one night Colombo to get settled and over 13 days travelled to Kandy, Sigiriya, Nuwara Ella, Ella, Mirassa and finally Galle Fort.

    Our driver Mr Laal was with us for the whole trip and really looked after us very well. He was also a great guide when we needed him and sometimes came on the hikes we did. His driving was very safe and he always made sure we were comfortable in the van. Note that driving 80km in Sri Lanka can take over 3 hours...due to slower traffic and also mountainous roads inland. At the end of each day he would drop as back at our hotel usually around 5pm and then we would next meet him the following morning after breakfast outside the hotel with his minivan cleaned and ready to go.

    We took 3 train train journeys during our stay and Mr Laal always brought us right to the platform and made sure we found our reserved seats on the train. He would then meet us at our destination as we stepped off the train, and best of all...he had our luggage already in his minivan.

    It is very hard to buy first class reserved seats on trains in Sri Lanka ahead of time but Merganser took care of all of these for us. We turned up one morning at a station only to find a huge line of tourists right out of the station waiting to buy tickets. Mr Laal brought us in another entrance as we already had our tickets and we walked straight to the platform.

    If we wanted to change plans or add something to our trip then Mr Laal and Merganser were very helpful and accommodating. We tried to set up a balloon trip but fog prevented this....we were kept informed the whole time...and it was not a problem when the balloon company had to cancel the night before.
    Thank you for everything and thank you Mr Laal for looking after us so well...we will never forget this trip!!!!!

    Thanks to our driver Manoj we had a pleasant and stress free journey. He was very helpful, always positive and smiling. He know good all the tourist attractions and made a great recommendations to us. Also he is very professional driver and the car was comfortable and always clean. I highly recommend to ask for him when making a reservation.

    Just have in mind that the company has some policy and your pick up point is also your drop off. First we decided to leave at Galle (our pickup point was Colombo) at the end decided to be Negombo, but also kilometers back to Colombo was calculated.
