Am off for the first time on Monday and through tour operator Kuoni. they have an 8 day tour which includes a day arrival and beach hotel and day of departure, both Columbo, so in essence 6 days inland and many attractions and full board hotels.

Hi we are holidaying in Sri Lanka for the first time in April we have booked through Senses Holiday, Tailor Made Specialist who have put together a great Itinerary for us, although, I have only read one other review about them which was positive.

Just came back from a holiday with senses holidays, never again. All friendly and fast service until they receive payment.

A few days before our departure they changed our hotel saying it was overbooked and offered us a inferior hotel but they didn't tell us this at the time,they "promised it's just as good if not better".

When we arrived at the resort we were in chock over the low standard and the company wouldn't do anything to help us change hotel even though they had spare rooms in other hotels around that area which they do business with.

We saw a few other travellers that had been told exactly the same by their sensesholiday agent a few days before their holiday. It seems common practise to book you in a nice hotel and then change just before departure when you have little or no time to make other arrangements.

Save your money and holiday, by booking with some one else.
