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.

    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 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!!

    From the moment we booked until our driver Shantha dropped us off we had the most amazing trip. We even got help to solve visa issues within hours.
    Our hotels were five star amazing and the suggested adventures beautifully planned.
    Our Yala safari was spectacular even though the leopards stayed away.
    I can highly recommend this agency and promise you won’t get disappointed.

    Highly recommended this tour we went to a couple of temples that most foreigners don’t get to go to, the Gardens are lovely, spice tour, kandan dancers & viewing area that overlooks Kandy. Our tour guide Sajith was great asking us what we wanted to do and see and also making suggestions.

    We had an amazing time in Srilanka! The trip was very nicely planned and all details were taken care of. From important historic sites to majestic mountains, well preserved national parks and beautiful pristine beaches, this trip was full of variety and never a dull moment! My daughter loves animals and she loved the jeep safari and turtle hatchery.

    A special thanks to our amazing, punctual and fun guide Madusanka. He was delight to travel with and gave us many suggestions on best time to visit a site, great food choices. His hospitality and grace made our experience extra memorable.

    We where planning to trip our own, but if you have a plan allways comes something. So we tried to buy tickets Colombo to Habarana and asked accedentally from USP Lanka tour worker to help us and he helped us and also tell us about reallly good oppurtunitie to use their driver. He didnt force to choose them, he was nice and we gladly made our trip a little bit easier. So we traveled by train to Habarana and after that we had our driver Dilruk. He thought with us what to explore, was allways helpful and ready to change his plans to make things we wanted to do. He was like a bodyguard. And plan manager. And the man who is one of Sri Lanka :) we are very thankful to USP Lanka tours and to Dilruk (who you can allways trust)

    Asanka was the most amazing driver and tour guide we could have asked for. He was so organised and made our 2 weeks travelling Sri Lanka so easy. Asanka’s knowledge of the wildlife and birds is phenomenal. We had such an amazing time with him on safari, pointing out animals and birds that we’d never spot! We learned so much about beautiful Sri Lanka on every journey with him. We always felt safe and confident with Asanka’s plans, he was always organised for any events. I would recommend Asanka to anyone thinking of traveling to Sri Lanka. He takes out the hassle of traveling. His car is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. He is a kind, funny man who will enlighten you to the best that Sri Lanka has to offer.

    10 people, a bus🚍, 1200 km amid lavish greenery🌳🌴🌾, tea fields🫖, waterfalls, an amazing cuisine experience🍛🍲🥗, between sunrises🌄 and sunsets🌅 over vastness ocean🌊. Tailored itinerary and care from arrival🛬 till departure🛫 Comfort, safety, unforgettable memories, flexibility: all in one packet. Spots a tourist can't afford 🏯to miss as well as those off the beaten track💎. We did the route : Sigiriya, Polonnaura, Kandy, Nuwara Elija, Ella, Tangalle. Shehan knows his job, is a perfecionist, honest with his clients and he can read the needs of the party perfectly. We all recommend Shehan Fernando and Luxtraveller Sri Lanka-Travels &Tours. You won't be disappionted. On behalf of our group: Anna Pawelec

    We did an 8 days trip through Sri Lanka with the Ceylon Classic tours and we are more than grateful for our choice!! We organized our tour with Lishan, who was more than helpful and give us some great information and tips!! Then Kasun takes over with the last details for our upcoming trip.. he also gives us his number so that we can call if we need anything during our trip!! Last but not least our super driver Saman!! He was very kind, and helpful and he got answers to every question that we had!! Ceylon Classic tours made our journey memorable in a way we couldn't imagine!! We really recommend this Tour company for your journey in Sri Lanka as they are the best company operating at the moment!! Thank you Lishan, Kasun and sir Saman for the great time that we had!!!
