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.

    We were so lucky to start our journey early in the morning from Negombo hotel. We could see lots of elephants at the beginning of the safari. Such an awesome experience. That's the highlight of our jeep safari. Addition to that we saw many endemic birds which we are not aware of. But still it was really interesting to see them and get some pictures of them. Deers and wild buffalos are very common in the park, we saw them at every single place we stopped. Less crowd and full day safari is the best way to discover the beauty of the park. Highly recommend it.

    We have had an amazing time in Sri Lanka. The company was very easy to book with and our guide Niran has been wonderful and amazing at making sure we can see everything in the week we have had here. We have felt very safe in all the places we have been and have seen so much of Sri Lanka in just a few days. It is a beautiful country and some of the highlights for me have been seeing the elephants, the early morning walks, trips to tea factories and the train journey to Ella. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anybody that is thinking about it. 😄

    Really exciting day trip out from Bentota & even the drive there was inciteful. Our driver was so friendly & informative pointing out interesting sights & banana & tea plantations & palm oil trees. Great lunch stop off before being picked up by jeep from restaurant. We were lucky on our safari to see a leopard up a tree across the lagoon elephant family huge crocodile amazing birds plus much more. Very comfortable drive back in air conditioned car. Will definately book more trips through Bentota travel next time we are in the area. Thank you!@

    We booked this tuk tuk safari around Colombo as our last trip in Sri Lanka .it was such a great way to fill in time whilst waiting to catch a plane . We stopped at a Hindu, and Buddhist temple, drove past the red and white mosque . Drove through the throngs of people and pavement of the crazy markets . We got such a great feel for the city . We also stopped for fruit drink and had an authentic Sri Lanka meal served on a lotus leaf. Our tour guide couldn’t do enough for us and even found a second hand book store for my husband . He shared so much of his island history and culture and is really great unofficial ambassador for his land . And of course a great tuk tuk driver .

    We had such an axing experience with Blue Lanka Tours, highly recommend anyone planning a trip to Sri Lanka to get in touch with them. Right from the start we worked with one their agents, Nimesha, who care carefully constructed the ideal trip for us. We went back and forth a number of times in which she considered all our preferences. It was a very well constructed itenirary, not a random cut and paste of typical tours. They were an extremely professional and courteous company to deal with.

    Once we landed in Sri Lanka we met our guide and driver at the airport, chanaka, who was extremely amazing through out the tour. He was so knowledgeable and resourceful during our stay in Sri Lanka. We enjoyed every minute of it. Do request him if you book with blue Lanka Tours!

    An amazing experience! Honestly had the best day ever and our whole day was planned for us. Nishantha made our trip extra special and was a highlight for us. He is the best jungle man ever, super friendly and made us laugh all day long. My friend was really poorly towards the end of the trip and he went above and beyond to look after her which was so so lovely. Overall an amazing experience and would highly recommend!

    Whole trip was planned perfectly and according to our wishes. The Guide and the Jeep Driver were so experienced and proffesional, a real nature lovers. We took so many photos, spotted more than 30 elephants, no to mention other species as jackals, buffalos, crocodiles and so many birds. The trip was both adventurous and comfortable plus I was feeling super safe. This was my first time in Sri Lanka and when I will be back I am choosing the same company.

    Our guide was an amazing tour guide and driver. He was early to pick us up in the afternoon for our tour and very friendly. He had extensive knowledge of the park and all its wildlife, stopping wherever he saw something that to the untrained eye would be impossible!

    We initially booked this trip but ended up doing so much more tours. This is highly recommended to all faller travellers out there.

    It was such a relaxing holiday but we’ve seen everything. So many amazing suggestions but nothing was forced.

    Can’t put it words how happy I was with this trip. Thank you so much again! You made Sri Lanka one of my highlight destinations in Asia ♥️

    An excellent day out, with a courteous and informative driver. We saw *loads* of elephants, including some very close up, and got to experience an authentic side to Sri Lankan culture. It’s a long day — with around 8 hours of driving — but well worth doing if you’re short on time or restricted by location and want to see elephants in the wild whilst in Sri Lanka.
