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.

    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.

    This was a fantastic tour that included two really great activities in addition to the temple in Kandy. Our driver, the guide at the temple and the communication with the company were very professional. The company helped us book late the evening before. We then did another two tours with this company that included some personalised elements too. We were so impressed by their professionalism and care.

    An amazing experience for life. The support we got from our tour guide , Janaka Soyza, was brilliant.
    A challenging hike, but the experience is just wonderful!

    We have just returned from the most wonderful day seeing Dumballa, Sigiriya and going to Minnieriya. All three places were truly magical where we met locals and tourists alike and felt truly included. Sigiriya was the planned highlight of our trip and it surpassed our expectations. We were taken there at the quietest time and could really enjoy the views.

    Our tour guide, Mr Ilham, we so attentive and went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great day. He was really caring towards our two children and made sure they were well looked after.
    Our driver was excellent and got us through the crowded city with ease.
    I would definitely use your service again and can’t recommend our tour guide and driver enough.
    Both extremely professional and knowledgeable.
    Thank you so much.

    This day trip from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya via Ramboda was one of the highlights of my trip through Sri Lanka so far. My driver and tour operator Harsha has a very calm and pleasant manner, is very patient and explained everything to me. He is also a very good conversationalist and listener, which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get to know the nature and culture of this area! Thank you so much for this amazing experience and hope to see you again soon! All the best - Irina

    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

    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.

    Had a wonderful guided trek up Knuckles range - with lovely views and mostly clear skies along the way. Was also shown various types of endemic plants and wildlife by Lakmal, who was both knowledgeable and attentive. He had even prepped leech socks, which were extremely helpful!

    I really enjoyed the right amount of information I got during the trip. All my special requests were solved very quickly, in few seconds the team understood what I need, and they tailored the program accordingly. Everything was as it was previously planned. No delays, no compromises in the quality of the contracted services. The recommended hotels were above the expectations, but tailored according to my budget. I reccomend them not only to mu friends, but to other tourism agencies, as a good partner.

    Lakmal was a great guide, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very supportive catering to all different fitness abilities and making sure we were all safe. We had water in the car at all times. He proudly showed us his home country with all its natural beauty and friendly amazing people. The food was good, a bit spicy, but good, amazing fruits!!!! and the lunch at the village in Kandy was out of this world, simple, tasty and serving of the food was organic, I would go back and stay with them. I wish we had more fresh vegetables. We met her female cousin who was also a guide and she was so friendly. Thank her for finding my reading glasses. Overall a fantastic magical experience of enchanted Sri Lanka!!! I would have to go back with more time to discover the other cities.

    It was a relaxing train ride as I booked 2nd class (reserved seats). Throughout the ride, there were many beautiful views for the camera. Best if you can get seats on the right side of the train (more views and no morning sun).

    The train was not travelling very fast, so if you are the adventure type, feel free to open the train door and take photos or even selfie like me.

    Lovely safari around sigiryia national park arranged for us with our own jeep by our private tour guide. It was a very bumpy journey through the park where we experienced the sight of animals in their own habitat, wandering around the park in peace, it was lovely to see
