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.

    This was a really fun few hours with a variety of different water activities which I would not hesitate to book again.

    The experience included rafting, a zip line into the river and sliding down and jumping off rocks into the water. The guys running it kindly took photographs and videos of us during the experience which we really appreciated. The experience was also exclusive for me and my partner rather than a group experience.

    The end to end experience lasted for around 3 hours. I would recommend water shoes if you have them and swim shorts to avoid scratching your legs when sliding down the rocks.

    Columbus Tours organised our whole 14 day trip to Sri Lanka. The organisation was impeccable. The 5 hotels we stayed in were all completely different from each other, but without exception the accommodation exceeded our expectations and was very comfortable with attentive and cheerful staff and excellent food. A particular joy was our tour guide/chauffeur Chanaka who was absolutely first-class, a great credit to the company, and who we now regard as a friend. His knowledge of his country's geography, history, and wildlife is impressive, and his enthusiasm is infectious. We are fortunate enough to have travelled fairly widely over the years but can honestly say that Sri Lanka is now one of our favourite destinations even though this was our first visit. God willing it will not be the last.

    I found Jason on Instagram. It was a hit! Jason Pereira organized the route, booked appropriate hotels, and matched the budget to our possibilities. We were supposed to get to know each other better at dinner together. Super nice guy! Jason is a very communicative person, we could rely on him.
    Our driver for the entire route was Mohan, who works with Jason. The perfect man for the job. We had a fantastic time together. Mohan not only took us safely across the island, but also told us about the history of the places we visited. He adapted the route to our needs. Thanks to Mohan, we gained great memories, but he also became our friend.
    We highly recommend the services of Jason Pereira and Mohan Thilakawardhan!!!

    We had a wonderful honeymoon trip in Sri Lanka. We travel for 2 weeks all around the island : Negombo, Anuradhapura, Jaffna , Habarana, Kandy , Eliya , Ela , Mirissa , Bentota and Colombo. All this thanks to the amazing work of Ceylon Expeditions who made an amazing job to make this trip come true and allowed us to have great memories of our trip . A huge thank you to our driver Nadeera who is amazing ,drove us all over the country and gave us great tips and explanation about Sri Lanka . We love the diversity of the trip which include Temple visits, elephant safari, hiking , beautifull landscape , magnificent tea fields , beautifull beaches and great cooking experience in Local Family. Thanks to the great work of Ceylon Expeditions , we stayed in marvelous hotels.The only thing we regret is that we should have stayed longer to enjoy a few days at the beach.
    A huge thank you to Lalith and the whole team and especially to our great driver/guide Nadeera. We highly recommend to travel with Ceylon Expeditions

    問合せ段階から旅程終了まで、迅速でかつ丁寧な対応をしていただきました。
    見積もり時に料金以外に旅程の提案までしてくださったので、良心的な価格と安心感で決めました。
    旅行中も臨機応変な対応で、滞りなく全行程を楽しく終えることができました。
    手配してくださったドライバーさんも明るく気の利く方で、楽しく快適な旅を満喫できました。
    スリランカを再訪する際には、ぜひまたお願いしたいです。

    Quick and caring response from inquiring to the end of the trip. The suggested itinerary was nice and the cost was reasonable. They rose to the occasion even during the trip. The driver was friendly, trustworthy and had good sense. The whole travel was comfortable and satisfying. Highly recommended.

    I've just came back from the tour on Sri Lanka arranged by SriLankan Chic Holidays. It was one of my best trips ever! I crossed the island from West to East, and back. SLCH team designed such an interesting tour for us! Thanks to them I've been to Buddhist temples, I climbed on Sigiriya rock, I went to jeep safari to see the elephants, I saw how spices grow in a spices garden, I made a boat tour and went to a traditional dance performance in Kandy including fire walking. Not to mention that I was travelling with my two kids. SLCH made the tour so comfortable for us - we had a very careful and thoughtful guide. We stayed at wonderful hotels, all of them had big swimming pools which was highly appreciated by kids. And we had a good combination of lazy beach rest with active sightseeing. Thank you, guys!!!

    We found Tharindu as a driver and guide pleasant, helpful and patient.
    His driving was at good pace. We went to Hatton , Kandy and another day ingriya. To 2 buddhist monasteries set in the jungle .

    Once when i had a leech bite at Ingriya, he helped me get some help at a local hospital in ingriya. I was not charged surprisingly.

    It was our first holiday outside of Europe, and we couldn’t have chosen a better country. Sri Lanka is amazing, and our guide, Manu, was really helpful with everything. We didn’t have any major issues that effected our holiday, everything was smooth and trouble free, and any small problems we had, Manu solved it 😊

    Normally on holidays I tend to rent a car, however driving in Sri Lanka is not for the faint hearted. We are super glad to have booked with Kumar, he's a great driver, making even the longer journeys very comfortable which meant that we could just relax.

    Mr. Fairooz is not only a great tour operator, but a very cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable guide and company! He was with us all through our trip from Colombo, Sigiriya, Kandy, Galle and back to Colombo. He helped us with our hotel reservations as well, recommending good locations with competitive rates. He also helped us complete our must-dos be it about the local cuisine or places to visit or shop.
    He was more of a friend through our trip and we really felt safe with him around.
    Overall, I enjoyed every bit of my trip, mostly because of Mr. Fairooz!
    I would recommend him to anybody who wants to have a great trip in Sri Lanka!

    We had an amazing 10-day tour of the best places in Sri Lanka, including a thrilling Jeep safari with elephants, exploring the majestic Sigiriya, visiting diverse temples, a beautiful botanical garden, charming cities, and a mesmerizing tea plantation. Our tour guide, Aruna, made this journey truly unforgettable. His warm and friendly nature added a personal touch to every experience. Aruna took great care of us throughout the trip, ensuring our safety and comfort at all times. We are immensely grateful for his guidance and attention to detail. Thanks to him, our Sri Lanka adventure became a cherished memory.
