  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Despite the fact that it's a bit hot these days in Sri Lanka, we still manage to do a safari in Wilpattu. We always wanted to visit Wilpattu as we have visited almost all the national parks in Sri Lanka. Compared to other parks in Sri Lanka, this one offered the greatest variety of animals seen so far including a large group of deer, lots of beautiful birds, rabbits, leopard and many more. This is a true gem of Sri Lanka. It's WELLLL worth a several day visit. Definitely will come back.

    Had a wonderful day full of amazing sights and a hike to the top of Pidurangala. Our guide Mr Shamin really went out of his way to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves and he had lots of knowledge to share with us on the sights we visited. The tour was personalised and flexible, according to our needs. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. I’m really glad we booked a tour to see Dambulla and the sights near, instead of just going on our own.

    It was a 13 day tour around Sri Lanka customised to our requests. The agent organised the hotel bookings and driver plus car. No issues on any bookings. The agent was very quick to respond to my questions and to set up the customised itinerary in such a short space of time!

    The driver, Kanishka was very knowledgeable, polite and professional. He made sure we visited all the key places in good timing. We also stopped at various places for refreshments and taking photos!

    We thoroughly enjoyed all the sightseeing, food, beaches and the culture of Sri Lanka!! I would highly recommend Beauty Lanka Travels.

    Brilliant experience. Well organised and we had a fantastic driver in Dilshan Wjethunga - who made the day extra special by stopping at lots of fun and exciting places along the way, like a spice garden where we got massaged with locally produced massage oil.

    The sigirya tour and lunch were also fantastic and ran seamlessly and we liked that they customised it to our preferences.

    Would definitely recommend

    We booked 2 nd class reserved via 12GoAsia 4 weeks ahead of travel - a little more expensive but a great service of tickets hand delivered to our local homestay and good tracking advice during process.
    The journey, we did Ella to Kandy was superb.
    Late arriving to start but fun watching life on the train station. Shame there were mainly tourists on this train and few locals, however we were entertained by the frequently passing food vendors both on and on the tracks at stations.
    I just loved the freshly cooked peanuts and veggie pakoras!!
    The drive was slow enough to capture on camera many of the splendid views that never ceased to amaze and thrill along the way.
    Well worth spending 5 or 6 hours meandering through the countryside and found neither left or right side was better, equal glorious viewing for the entire time.

    Janaka was wonderful today - my friend and I were amazed at how much we managed to do and see, and I also asked to make the tour finish in time to return to Kandy for the dance show at 5pm and he made this work (even booking us seats by phone) which was really appreciated! A great car with air conditioning, it felt very comfortable. Really happy I chose this tour as I wouldn't have had time to organise it myself and this made everything easy. Thank you Janaka! What a fun day!

    We had a wonderful experience of Srilankan culture,nature and cuisine. Our guide and driver Janaka was excellent. His experience and wonderful nature heightened the tour. The best experience was having fresh cooked food in a small hut with the villagers

    Where do I start?! Ended up being a solo trip but was lucky enough to have Lalith as my guide who made feel right at home.
    Stopped off for some delicious local breakfast along the way, checked out Dambulla cave temple and saw heaps of monkeys. Lions rock in sigiriya was sick and Lalith helped me get tickets and pointed me in the right direction. Finished off with a coffee at the bottom of sigiriya rock, wholesome day indeed.

    cheers Lalith!

    Had such a fantastic time on the day tour to Sigiriya and surrounds with Irfan. The driver was very punctual and reliable, and the car is new and air-conditioned. We visited a Buddhist temple, Sigiriya rock, a local village and even got an awesome surprise! The village tour included delicious food, cooking demonstrations and beautiful nature/scenery.

    This is one of the best tours in Sri Lanka! I definitely recommend it to other travellers.

    Thanks Aalya tours!

    A trip of a lifetime to wonderful Sri Lanka. The 8 day tour allows you to experience some of the best locations visiting temples, caves, forts and wildlife reserves.

    Manju looked after us really well giving insights and information on the various activities. His driving was excellent.

    We are so overly grateful that we crossed paths with Nadith on our Sri Lankan trip. We had him originally just as a driver from A to B, but then discovered how knowledgeable and kind he was, that we had him as a guide for the following two days! We are never into ‘guided tours’ but this was so casual yet informative it was brilliant. He went above and beyond to share so much culture and history with us — his knowledge is incredibly rich and deep and he knows his way around so well.

    We did the Kandy tour with him, which allowed us to really enjoy the busy city. We talked to other travellers who didn’t like the place, so we thoroughly believe it was Nadith who allowed us to really enjoy being there. He went really above and beyond and gave so much of his time, we never felt rushed and he altered everything to suit what we wanted to do, nothing was too much hassle at all.

    We also did Kandy to Nuwara Eliya with him, which was a brilliant suggestion to see some sights along the journey and then catch the train from there to Ella instead of doing the whole train journey. Which we wouldn’t have even considered before, yet worked out perfectly as we didn’t have train tickets so just did the smaller and most beautiful section.

    He made us feel so well taken care of, allowed us to relax in the craze of Sri Lanka knowing we were taken care of and was such a genuinely great person!! We would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone visiting Sri Lanka and the central area. We are so so so grateful that we crossed paths!!! Thanking you always Nadith!!
