    What an incredible man Dileepa is, he will make your trip a trip to remember.

    We were fortunately enough to meet Dileepa on our 2nd day in Sri Lanka, when we needed to go from Negombo to Kandy, Dileepa came to collect us from the hotel. From the moment we started driving I knew he was an incredibly genuine and kind man whom purely just wanted the best for you and your trip. On the way to Kandy he recommended that we stop at an elephant orphanage and a herb/spice garden to make the journey more enjoyable. He didn’t even want anymore money for it! He also knew we really wanted to try some classic Sri Lankan fruits so stopped off for coconut and red banana as we drove. Memories we won’t forget 😊

    We really wanted to use Dileepa for the rest of our trip but, we didn’t really need a tour guide as we had an itienary planned already, we just needed a taxi driver and it didn’t make sense to hire him for that.

    Dileepa still wanted to help so, out of the kindness of his heart, he arranged the taxis for us for the rest of our trip, ensuring his friends arrived on time and meaning we didn’t need to mess around booking and waiting for Ubers etc. the prices were the same as Uber too. I can’t explain how helpful this was for us and I will really hope that by writing this review I can somehow return the favour to Dileepa by being the reason that someone books with him after seeing how much he can make their trip.

    His knowledge on Sri Lanka would be so useful for someone who is looking for help with places to go and attractions to see etc. He has a very reasonable daily price which means he is your driver and stays nearby to you, his food, petrol and accommodation is also included in that price too.

    Please use Dileepa if you come to Sri Lanka, you won’t regret it 😀🙏

    We did a tour with Ceylon explore Tours in march 2024 and all I can say is WOW. We had the most amazing vacation which far exceeded our expectations. Our guide fernando was so friendly, it felt like we had known him for years but more importantly he really went out of his way to ensure we had the most memorable stress free holiday
    I would highly recommend Ceylon explore Tours if you are visiting Sri Lanka and want to have a stress free vacation :)

    Anu was a safe driver, gave good advice for sightseeing and took good care of us.
    We recommend him if you need a driver in Sri Lanka.

    For our honeymoon we chose to go to Sri Lanka, usually we do not book with a guide, but considering it was our honeymoon we wanted something hassle free. Lanka trails was definitely the best choice we made. Our guide Sujith Jayathunga was very helpful, super friendly & extremely knowledgeable - educating us about the history, the culture and the beautiful country. All hotels with half board and excursions were booked by our guide, providing us the best hotels in Sri Lanka with marvellous food. The choice of the excursions were adventurous and really fun. We visited the most beautiful places in Sri Lanka which was supplied by our guide (he was open in case we wanted to visit somewhere else). He drove us all around the country with a comfortable, fully air conditioned car. He also did not bother to take us professional photos. I would highly recommend Lanka Trails and especially our guide Sujith you are the best!!

    This was an awesome trip.

    Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by our guide cum driver Mr. Shashi. He was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. We had a fantastic week here.Negombo, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Hambantota, Yalla, Galle and Colombo, all the places were great and scenic.

    Shashi is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). He helped beyond his duties.

    The atmosphere was so special that it really felt like home to all of us. All respect for Shashi who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide!

    Many thanks again and I recommend Didulanka Travels to everyone!

    I loved all of it. We did a 10 day round trip in Sri Lanka and Dush was our driver guide and kind and patient helper. He kept us safe and showed us a lot of very interesting things in his country. His love for the place, his patience for my photography and his knowledge of the history and about his people gave us the extra spice what made Sri Lanka one of the must go destination. I highly recommend his services and his expertise.

    My family tour package was very well planned and organised by Solo Lanka Holidays especially Thushanth n team. We were given warm welcome upon arrival at Colombo airport. Throughout our stay the fabulous journey and spectacular sceneries were amazing with pleasant drive and jovial conversations with Nazlan. Highly recommended tour agency and thank you all for the hospitality given. Cheers!

    Lishan organized the best intro tour to Sri Lanka for our family with young kids (4 and 7). Our tour guide, Rukman, was world class, kind, patient, knowledgeable, and an incredibly safe driver. The tours were all well timed, fun, and maximized our week in country. We did a little bit of everything - Sigiriya, tea plantations, safari, beach, you name it! And nothing felt rushed or stressful. Usually after a week-long holiday with lots of moving around you need another vacation, but I feel refreshed and happy and ready to do it all again! I can’t recommend Lishan enough! Oh! And they did very sweet little things like have our hotel send us a cake on our anniversary. 😊

    First I would like to say I fell in love with Sri Lanka because of this company and my driver! After another company left me stranded at the airport in Sri Lanka D&D stepped in and were AMAZING! After helping me find my hotel they offer tons of local information and extras that really took my trip from being good to great! You could tell the people with D&D love their country and sharing it with others. My driver showed me local hidden gems not typical to bigger tour companies.
    When I return to Sri Lanka they will be the only service I use.

    We stayed in Sri Lanka Colombo area due to german governmnet funded academic student cooperation project and booked Winstartours with Wickrama for a package of 12 tours to southern, eastern, and southern provinces. Trips were done with very comfortable Toyota Hybrid car as well as vans of several sizes . Wickrama was always reliablle on the spot, cars were clean and without any failure. All his trip bookings worked out nicely, he saved our money with comparably better prizes due to personal contacts to local hotels and guides. He cared for fresh food on the road, as King coconuts, Papaya and buffalo curds with triacle. Great assistance with everything unforeseen, too.
    In summary Wickrama now is our "mully" friend, We definitely will ask for his services whenever we are in Sri Lanka again.

    I travelled to Srilanka with my wife and daughter for leisure this January. We met FREDRICK through a friend's reference. I must say i was extremely happy with his services. He has been hugely resourceful knowing in and out of the places to visit and pretty much everything. He went over board in ensuring we had a hassle & hustle free vacation. He is a great man always on his toes to help you out. If you are looking for a person you can trust and be comfortable with along the journey I recommend Fredrick.
    Thanks Fredrick for everything!
