“Wonderful holiday - would definitely recommend”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We visited Sri Lanka in January this year for 3 weeks, and our chauffeur\guide during this time was Niroshan from Dewmini Tours. Niroshan was very knowledgeable and professional. His spoken English was excellent. He was always smartly dressed and his car was clean and comfortable. He was an excellent driver and we always felt completely safe and relaxed on our journey around the island. Having a dedicated chauffeur/guide made the holiday completely stress free, Niroshan was always on hand to deal with any problems we may have had. He also made our visits to historical sites and tourist attractions much easier as the touts did not bother us. Niroshan was very knowledgeable about Sri Lanka, its history and culture and we learnt a lot from him which we would not have been able to find out on our own. He pointed out a lot of interesting places and wildlife on our journey and and never minded deviating from our itinerary if we asked. Booking our tour with Niroshan from Dewmini Tours was the best decision we made and we cannot recommend him highly enough. We had a wonderful holiday, a big thank you to Niroshan for making it extra special.

“Extraordinary trip”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We spent 15 days in Srí Lanka and have seen most of the important historical and sites and had opportunity to visit also major Natural park. thank ti Niroshan we could learn a lot of the remarkably history of the country which he often inter-laid by interesting legends relating to the location or event. His guidance was very helpful in everyday life and contacts with the locals.
Besides we appreciated his safe driving and readiness to stop at all sites we thought worth of seeing not to mention his recommendations of such sites that we enjoyed very much.

“Exellent tour - highly recommended”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We had a day tour in Kandy with Niroshan from Dewmini Tours and it was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and having a guide took a lot of the hassle out of visiting the key sights such as the Temple of the Tooth. It was very useful to have someone to answer all of our questions and provide much more detail and information about places than we might otherwise have learned on our own.
Niroshan also offered longer tours which we took advantage of; we went to areas in the cultural triangle, Dambulla etc. and further south. Again, he was very well informed about Sri Lankan history and provided excellent day tours. Having a dedicated guide made visiting sites easier (with the added advantage of the surge of eager touts leaving you alone!) and we learned a lot at each place. The journeys in themselves were also fascinating as our guide pointed out places of interest, lots of wildlife and birds en route and accommodated any requests we had to stop off or vary the itinerary.
I would highly recommend booking with Dewmini. if you want peace of mind, safe travel, flexibility and a well informed, helpful and pleasant guide - who speaks very good English - for your trip.

“Great Tour, Great Guide”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We visited Sri Lanka in Dec / Jan just gone and were lucky to have Niroshan from Dewmini Tours as our guide. Our tour of Kandy was fantastic and Niroshan shared many insights with us and showed us many things that we would not otherwise have found.

Kandy is a delightful city. Niroshan was totally flexible and we were able to move the tour very much to our own pace.
