Great Travel Agents?

Hi,

We are having trouble trying to find the perfect honeymoon to Sri-lanka. We were hoping for 7 days jam packed with excursions and tours of the island then with at least 4 days in a luxurious hotel at the end.

We found an ideal package, reasonably priced at £1300 pp we thought, but when we arrived at the travel agents office we were told that this wasn't available at that time but she would arrange a private tour, 'Yay!' we thought, 'private tour!' She then came back with this beautiful array of hotels dotted around the island, an 11 night holiday for £2000pp, slightly more than expected especially when on closer inspection it didn't seem that the excursions we had asked for were included within the package and were going to be an additional extra!

So my question is this, has anybody had a holiday like what we are looking for and if you have what travel agents did you use?

thank you!

We just completed 14 days with a private driver. 5 hotels with most I would consider 4 star. Everything was handled for us with 3 safaris in Wilpattu, 1 in Minneriya, Sigiriya, Poluneriya. All for the price of 2,600 dollars US. each. This was with Red Dot. Were totally happy with there arrangements for us.

hey Sireland2812

"11 night holiday for £2000pp" == that price could be too high, or really a good deal, it entirely depends on what category of hotels are included in the price, and what else is included in the price.

There are many TO's with great offers. drop me a pm if you want some contacts
