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 had a wonderful 8-day tour of Sri Lanka with Manju and got to see a lot of this beautiful country with the highlight being an up close encounter with a herd of about 20 elephants! Manju was very professional, prompt and always waiting for us with a smile each morning. We traveled in a comfortable van with cold a/c and plenty of space for us and our luggage. Even though some of the roads were occasionally a little precarious with lots of buses and motorcycles, Manju was a careful driver and made sure we felt safe. He provided us with an itinerary prior to the trip but was flexible when we asked to make a few changes en route. The accommodations he selected for us were all well appointed and comfortable. We would recommend Manju for anyone wanting to travel through Sri Lanka.

    We had a very pleasant trip with Irfan as our guide!

    We had a whole day arranged with fun moments and experiences - Irfan was very punctual with our morning pickup at 6 AM and we got to see Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polannaruwa with plenty of time at each location with opportunity to buy breakfast in the morning and snacks between places as well. We were lucky to encounter many animals during our trip from place to place as well. This was simply an unforgettable experience - and we would book with Aliyah Tours and Irfan as our guide again!

    After communication with Darshana our trip was plain sailing, from airport pick up to return to negombo.
    I can’t speak more highly of our fantastic guide/driver Suneth, he was so friendly and knowledgeable and made our tour so enjoyable.
    We were sadly not keen with Sri Lankan food but this was never a problem with western alternatives were found instead.
    Wonderful people and country.
    And would highly recommend this tour operator especially if you don’t want to have a time schedule in group tours, which definitely isn’t our thing.
    Thank you Suneth and Darshana.

    We cannot thank our tour co-ordinator Nilushki and our tour guide Dewa enough for our fantastic holiday. There was such attention to detail around our trip – ranging from a greeting with flowers at the airport, to snacks to keep us going at the safaris – and care shown by both during our time there. I was sick for a day or so during the trip and both Nilushki and Dewa demonstrated genuine concern for my well-being.
    Planning the tour with Nilushki couldn’t have been easier. We used one of their standard tours as a starting point and adjusted according to our interests and the extra time we had available. Nilushki suggested places and activities that we might enjoy - all of them spot on - as well as accommodation, which was outstanding too. She was incredibly flexible and nothing was a problem during the whole process. She even took it to the next level, ensuring our itinerary coincided with annual festivals that we didn't know about. This was particularly so for the annual Buddhist parade in Kandy.
    And our guide and driver Dewa. What can I say? Dewa really made our trip so special for us. He organised all the tickets / passes / accesses for all of our activities, as well as liaising with our accommodation to ensure we were settled in and comfortable. It meant we didn’t have to worry about any of those small but annoying things that otherwise take up time and stress during a holiday. He was our guide on the vast majority of the activities, he cheerily answered any and all questions we had about Sri Lanka (including some awkward ones 😊) and he seemed to know nearly everyone in the country! Everywhere we went he knew people and they were all happy to see him. I take that as a good sign of his genuineness and care. He was happy to oblige any requests we had, was always on time (even early), incredibly friendly and open and enthusiastic about the day’s activities. He was there when we needed him but also gave us the space to enjoy our holiday just the two of us. As he realised our interests whilst travelling with us, he suggested and added in other activities he thought we would like. They were spot on too. Honestly, the perfect guide and companion for our trip. I could not speak more highly of him.
    Whilst I had wanted to utilise a local travel agent for our trip to Sri Lanka – in no small part because I wanted to give my business to a smaller local company, rather than a multinational travel agency – I was concerned about the quality of the service we would receive. Journeyscapes, Nilushki and Dewa completely transformed my concerns by providing such an excellent trip. I cannot recommend more highly.

    My 6/7 day tour was organized by Beyond escapes. It was curated to my needs and attention to detail was fabulous. Ruwan who is the founder of ‘Beyond Escapes’ personally ensures everything is on order and is always accessible to the travelers. Our driver was Shavendra was a pleasant person to have around and contributed greatly to our beautiful experience in this magical country. If I think of Srilanka it will always be with Beyond Escapes.

    An amazing experience with Prebu, thanks a lot for everything! We were looking for somebody who would accompany me and my friend for a few days before ayurvedic retreat, so had just a short time to see as much as possible from the island. Prebu did a very good job, waited for us at the airport with breakfast and homemade cakes from his wife as a surprise, took us to all scheduled locations and arranged also accomodations for the whole trip, which were beyond our expectations. Also made us feel very safe and comfortable, so there wasn´t a need to solve any other issues and we could just purely enjoy the whole trip :) Thank you very much again, Prebu!

    We have a great experience in Sri Lanka and see so much! Our Driver Ben was very friendly, helpful for knowing any „insides“ from Sri Lanka. Our route was very flexible, we saw a lot of great places.

    I found this company while searching for a tour in Sri Lanka and I'm glad that I booked my trip with them because they took care of everything and were also very helpful. I traveled around Sri Lanka for ten days with Pradeep who was my driver. He is a very good driver and also a good guide. Thanks to him I was able to see the Ambuluwawa tower wich was not included in the initial tour, but Pradeep thought that this is a place that I should see and I'm really glad that he mentioned it because I loveded it. Also, because I took this tour at the beginning of the rainy season, there were many days when it rained, but Pradeep was a very good organizer and he managed to organize the places to visit according to the weather so I was able to see all the places included in the program. He gave me a lot of good insights about all the places I've visited and he was veri helpful every time I wanted to visit a place that wasn't mentioned in the program. I really enjoyed traveling around Sri Lanka in his company and I'll definitely choose him as my driver when I'll come back next time.

    Mahesh took our trip to the next level with his excellent driving skills, knowledge about Sri Lankan culture and food. Made several stops along our three week journey to show us the true Sri Lanka. We ate at local restaurants, he treated us with fruits and vegetables we had never heard of and took care of our daughter as it was his own. He even took care of an infant seat so she would be safe along our trip through the country he loves.

    I had a last-minute plan for Sri Lanka and my friend referred me to Laceylon Tours. Ishara from Laceylon Tours helped me plan a perfect itinerary in a short amount of time. She was very professional and tailored the trip to my specific needs. Thanks for the amazing service, Reshani! I'll definitely use Laceylon Tours again for my next trip and recommend them to others.

    We were a group of three females. We were absolutely delighted with Sujeewa. He behaved in a very professional manner, and arranged a variety of tours and hotels over a period of 2 weeks. The trips were all well-organised and the hotels were nice and clean. We felt safe and well taken care of at all times. We had an amazing time in Sri Lanka and at the end of the trip, we felt as if he was part of our family. Highly recommended!!!
