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 chose Blue Lanka as our tour agent as we had heard a lot of good reviews about them and we were not disappointed at all.

    From the very beginning Ms. Reshani was very prompt in her responses and took all our requests and requirements and planned a very good family holiday for us.

    We were also celebrating our daughter's birthday and Ms. Reshani organised a lovely cake surprise on our arrival.

    Our tour guides Dilshan and Gayan were very friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable throughout our holiday. They took extra care of our 2 young children (age 5 & 3) making sure they had enough rest breaks, helped them climb the Dambulla cave temple, little Adam's peak. Dilshan also gave us alternate suggestions at Sigiriya rock which was much better suited for our children. We were given plenty of time to explore during the entire trip. Our children enjoyed the visits to the elephant orphanage in Sigiriya and the cultural show in Kandy.

    The views at the Dambulla cave temple and Little Adam's peak were breathtaking.

    Despite the rains during our holidays Dilshan and Gayan managed our time so well that we got to see everything on our itinerary without being rushed.

    We are very thankful to both Dilshan and Gayan for making this holiday so memorable for us and we would definitely recommend their services and request for them for any of our future holidays in Sri Lanka.

    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.

    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.

    We organised our trip via FB and WhatsApp as we were on a cruise. Our lovely driver Manju was waiting for us at the port and in three hours, he took us to loads of interesting places in Colombo. We saw elephants in the park, Buddhist Temples, old town hall, colonial hotels, independence monument and loads more. Manju bought us coconut drinks and we had a cooler box of drinks to share too. A real treat. The jeep was comfortable and the driving was very safe. Manju's knowledge of Sri Lankan history was very informative and he dropped us back at the port at the agreed time and in plenty of time before the ship left port. I can definitely recommend Colombo by Jeep to cruise passengers as an alternative to the cruise ship's excursions.

    Island Scuba is my go-to dive center in Colombo. Their customer service is top-notch and their entire dive staff are wonderful. They have always accommodated my requests and I trust them to keep my dive gear safe and secure.

    I gave them 5 stars because there is no option to give them 6!! They organised the best trip of my life! The only thing you have to think about is how to get out of the airport, they will take care of the rest. Suranga showed the best of Sri Lanka! He speaks fluent English and Italian. All the accommodations provided by the agency were above our expectations, the same for restaurants and experiences! The safari has been emotional. Thank you for looking after us! We highly recommend Ceylon Gate.
