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.

    There was a fabulous tour with a perfect balance of activities and downtime. The food and sights were amazing, with highlights like the turtle sanctuary and sunrise hikes. Lucky, our guide, was fantastic and went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction

    Our guide, Shanti made our trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable. Patient, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable, they tailored our experience to perfection, sharing rich insights into the country's culture and history. Not only a great guide, but Shanti also took care of us like family, ensuring every aspect of our journey was seamless. Highly recommended for anyone seeking an authentic and memorable Sri Lankan adventure!

    Although we had planned what we would like to see, we did not have travel organized. When we arrived the company approached us and offered Lochana Logh as our driver and guide. We are so grateful. He is careful and a good driver, being considerate of his passengers comfort. He gave us excellent suggestions and took us to fabulous eating places. We loved his consideration for the local wildlife and he is great at spotting them. He quickly found out what we enjoyed and modified our tour accordingly. He took a lot of anxiety out of our trip so we could relax in his knowing ability. We cant praise him enough.

    We’ve just completed a 12day tour of Sri Lanka with Janaka, our driver/guide.

    From the moment we met to the moment we left to come back home to the UK, our experience with Janaka was great.

    A kind, charming and warm-hearted person that I would thoroughly recommend.

    Despite our flights being severely delayed, Janaka patiently waited for us and got us to our first destination safely.

    He is a safe, trustworthy and reliable driver. Our car was comfortable, spacious, and always kept clean.

    We had pre-planned our itinerary before we arrived and had booked our accommodation. Janaka arranged several great safaris for us. Doing this had benefits vs us booking it ourselves. For instance, Janaka came with us on the private safaris and was able to clearly communicate with drivers. This made for a better experience. We ended up seeing 50 elephants in our trip around Dambulla. And we were pleased to spot a leopard, bear, eagle and many animals at Yala national park.

    Our itinerary was 3nights Dambulla, 1night Kandy, 2nights Ella, 1 night Yalla, and 4nights at relaxing beach locations in the South.

    There were a few days where we didn’t need the car, but having one for the whole trip is very convenient.

    Janaka introduced us to several local fruits, stopped for photo opportunities and gave us suggestions for our itinerary.

    Communication through Whatsapp was great and easy.

    Overall, we had the best experience in Sri Lanka, and would recommend Janaka to anyone. We would love to return one day.

    I had a last-minute plan for Sri Lanka and my friend referred me to Laceylon Tours. Ishara from Laceylon Tours helped me plan a perfect itinerary in a short amount of time. She was very professional and tailored the trip to my specific needs. Thanks for the amazing service, Reshani! I'll definitely use Laceylon Tours again for my next trip and recommend them to others.

    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.

    Our small Hungarian private group of six spent ten days in Sri Lanka. We visited almost all UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sri Lanka. We are not young anymore, but we are very happy thanks to Mr Kumara, who took good care of us and we were able to make it through the difficult tours.
    We recommend this travel agency to older travellers.
    We had many wonderful experiences during our trip to Sri Lanka with Mr. Kumara! We enjoyed our trip and received excellent service.
    If anybody else is planning a trip to Sri Lanka, we would definitely recommend Tours for Sri Lanka, which is a reliable travel agency licensed by the local authorities.

    My partner and I did a tour with Asa in February and March 2024. It was a fantastic trip and Asa was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun and took us to great spots, while always making sure we were comfortable and happy. We had such a brilliant and memorable time, it was the perfect way to see so much of such a beautiful country!

    We loved our trip to Sri Lanka. We had a 10 day tour and saw and did so much.
    We experienced the fantastic wildlife at Yala, the Kandy train, learned about tea, gems and cooking. Visited temples and all the beautiful sceneries which is amazing. From being met at the airport with a friendly wave and smile we were looked after exceptionally well by our guide Sanjiwa.He is full of local knowledge and nothing was ever too much trouble. Ladies you won't need as many clothes as you think.
    Loose wide trousers and tee shirts seemed best for the day and a couple of dresses for hotel evenings.
    All the hotels were beautiful and the foods are fantastic.
    Great Tour and Thank you Vacation Lanka Tours

    We chose Mango vacations after it was referred by a family member who used their services. Boy, there were not wrong! We had a blast of a vacation. Driver/ tour guide Vishwa was great. His sense of humour/ outstanding communication skills/ tailoring the vacation to our family’s needs. We travelled with 2 kids under 10 years old. The kids were well entertained on the trip. They got soo close to Vishwa. He became a family member by the end of the trip. My 10 year old son broke down when we have to say bye to him.
    He was too good of a tour guide. Highly recommend
