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.

    My stay at Sri Lanka was better than ever! The tour guide took us to beautiful and cultural places where we learned so much about Sri Lanka. Not only was the tour guide great but the driver had some talent parking the van 😂. Overall, I could not have asked for more make sure you check him out before you visit have fun!

    We made a week trip around Sri Lanka. Our driver was Shan, we highly recommend him! He really knows the country and tells you a lot of details and history. He is always on time and drives carefully, recommending the best places to visit. Everything was perfect!

    I decided to choose blue Lanka due to their great reviews and how organised and professional Nimesha was when I contacted the company through email.
    Nimesha was great in amending our itenary when I requested to change things and she kept me constantly informed of any changes or suggestions.
    I decided to book for 9 days/8 nights.
    We were picked up from our hotel in Negombo on our first day with some beautiful flowers.
    Hemantha was our guide and Lakmal was our driver.
    Our whole tour was very smooth and well organised. I had arranged a lot to fit in during our small amount of time. But it was all done really well by Hemantha ensuring we managed to do everything we wanted. He even suggested additional things we may want to add on which turned out to be great.
    Lakmal was a great driver, even on the crazy roads of Sri Lanka I always felt safe with him behind the wheel. After doing some very long hot activities returning to him smiling with the A/c on and water at the ready was really appreciated.

    We had the best trip and would def use blue Lanka/Hemantha and Lakmal again

    Travel Hub Sri Lanka made my journey to Ella seamless and stress-free. Their punctuality and professionalism were commendable, ensuring a comfortable and safe ride. I highly recommend their transfer services for anyone traveling in Sri Lanka.

    5 stars for our driver Sarath! We spend 8 days in Srilanka with Sarath as our personal driver. He is always punctual, has a great sense of humour and is always eager to share the beauty of his country with us. The car is always clean and mineral water bottles will be prepared for you at the start of each day! 10/10 would recommend! 😄

    We began our trip from Colombo and headed to the east coast of the country. Our driver Mr Anura De Zoysa arrived at our hotel on time for us to be picked up. He was friendly, caring and accommodating to all our needs as we were traveling with a 2yr old. He even took care of our daughter a few times when we had to step into stores or when we were having our meal. He was very knowledgeable of the roads , drove safely and knew what the fastest route was without having to use google. We thoroughly enjoyed an 8 day trip across the country and it was in large part due to Mr. Zoysa.

    We were a bunch of 10 friends so we split into 2 groups n went into the 'detective' and 'vacancy' game rooms. We definitely had so much fun and I'm hoping to go once again with my cousins to try out the other room. I would definitely recommend it and the person who explained us everything was very hospitable and kind.

    Five of us visited Srilanka that was organized by Lanka Safe Tours (LST) with excellent driver Malith from 9 to 15 April 2024. We asked to organised to visit specifically historical and cultural sits. LST prepared 3 different questions with different hotels. Very reasonable price for us with including travel, accommodations, breakfast and dinner in great four-star hotels. Picked up at airport to take all different places with friendly patient driver Malith. We like very much his accompany and LST arrangement.

    I toured Buddhist ruins with my mother for 10 days.
    At first, I was very worried about renting a car and traveling by myself, but I decided to get help as i was not confident enough to travel to the northern regions such as Jaffna and Nagadeepa.
    Ms Sharon was very professional and warmly helpful from beginning to end, always reliable and reassuring. It was my first time traveling to Sri Lanka, so I had a lot of questions before the trip, and she always gave friendly and quick answers.
    And the guide, Mr. Darshana, who was with us, always showed up earlier than the scheduled time from the first meeting to the last day, and took special care to avoid any danger. So I always felt reassured .
    I was really happy to be able to go to Adams Bridge, where all myths, legends, and history meet. And I can't forget a day in Polonnaruwa, where we were greeted by a cute and wonderful lake and playful monkeys.
    If I had driven it myself, I am sure I would have been exhausted and not been able to enjoy the trip properly.
    Sri Lanka is a pearl-like country with a brilliant history of over 2,500 years. I think the current situation in Sri Lanka is just a temporary long vacation period. I have no doubt that one day it will transform into a powerful country that no one can stop. I would like to thank all the Sri Lankans who were so kind and friendly. Bye~

    I was traveling alone and Hiran made me feel well taken care of. He got last minute tickets and deals for me and was a pleasure to talk to. He really cares if you’re having a good time and that you feel safe. He ensured I saw as much as possible in the time we had but also had it be on my schedule. Thanks again Hiran!

    Our driver San was the best ! He followed us during our whole 1 week itinerary across the country, giving us advices along the road on what to see, showing us sites and helped us tremendously on understanding the culture and country. He was super flexible and very kind and smiling all the time, we loved our time with him, it was hard to say goodbye! I could not recommend him more!
    The whole conditions of the quotation were respected, from price to formalities of picking us up at the airport with a shell necklace ;) thank you so much for making our trip unforgettable and super smooth!

    Having contacted a few travel agencies, we found the attention from Sajidh at Best of Lanka to be first class in every way. He took a lot of time to plan the trip with us and to understand every aspect. Sajidh was happy to give recommendations and help answer any questions. On the trip, when there was an issue that needed the office attention, he was again extremely responsive and efficient.
    We also feel very lucky to have met Gemunu our driver and guide. He was always so well presented, very polite, extremely knowledgeable, always friendly and always on time - for everything. He was great company throughout our trip around Sri Lanka and really did make our trip so much more enjoyable. Thank you so much Gemunu!!
    Finally we have left Sri Lanka feeling so lucky to have visited. Like many reviews posted before, the one thing we will remember above all else is the friendliness of the people. Always smiling and so hospitable to all the family. The country is so beautiful and the people make it even more so. We keep our fingers crossed the country can get a run of years now without significant ongoing difficulties. We would love to visit again someday and would certainly contact Best of Lanka and ask specifically ask for Gemunu Halgahawela to be our driver. Thank you 🙏🏻🙏🏻
