We have just returned from a wonderful 10 night tour with Hayley’s Tours booked through Voyage Prive. We were very fortunate to have the company of our guide Tyrone throughout!

The tour was incredibly well planned, taking in many sights and experiences of Sri Lanka. All hotels were of excellent standard and were well situated for the excursions.

Tyrone was a fantastic guide, always keen to share his extensive knowledge on all things Sri Lankan - history, politics, religion, wildlife and food! We learnt so much about Sri Lanka and Tyrone answered all our questions and provided great insight. Longer car journeys were regularly broken with him pointing out interesting sights and stopping for photos where possible.

Once Tyrone found out we were both vegetarian he provided great advice on the best food to eat and found us excellent vegetarian restaurants to stop at for lunch. This enhanced our trip greatly, allowing us to eat traditional Sri Lankan cuisine without worry.

We loved our trip to Sri Lanka and we are certain that having Tyrone as our guide allowed us to get so much more enjoyment and knowledge out of the tour! We can’t thank Tyrone enough!

We have just returned from a 10 day tour with Hayleys via Voyage Privé. Our trip was excellent and our guide was absolutely first class.

Activities:
All of the pre booked activities were 100% to the description and enhanced by the helpful and knowledgeable driver/guide. Our itinerary was thought out in advance and adapted by the guides local knowledge to enhance the experience of our visit but to also allow us to enjoy some down time in the afternoons / evenings.

Accommodation:
All hotels were great and we had no issues whilst we were checking in and out or during our stay. All of the hotels were well situated for the activities we had booked during each stay.

Driver / Guide:
Our driver / guide Sam was an absolute star who ensured that we got the most out of our time in Sri Lanka. Not only was Sam very informative about the country and locations we visited but he also went out of his way to ensure that we were comfortable and looked after. Sam was also very helpful in telling us what to "look out for" and what to avoid.

Over all our tour was amazing and we had a wonderful time and made some precious memories thanks to the locations that we visited and the astute service and assistance of our driver.

All the best

Cannot recommend Hayley Tours (via Secret Escapes) highly enough especially our tour guide Gemunu Halgahawela. Gemunu has been amazing, he is professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble for him. We are half way through our tour and so far Gemunu and the hotels have been great.

We’ve just come to the end of our 11 day stay in Sri Lanka.
The first 6 days of our trip were spent touring Dambulla, Kandy, Peradeniya & Nuwara Eliya with our wonderful Guide, Gemunu.
From our initial pick up at Colombo airport, Gemunu was there with his lovely smile, calm & friendly nature.
Gemunu has shown us so much of what the beautiful island of Sri Lanka has to offer.
His knowledge of Sri Lanka’s history, culture, nature & wildlife was absolutely amazing and enriched our experience completely.
Nothing was too much trouble & his passion for his role as our guide and his country was very evident.
Gemunu is indeed an asset to Hayleys Tours.
We wish him lots of success for the future.

We have just come to the end of a 10 day tour of Sri Lanka with our wonderful guide Gemunu. Since picking us up from the airport he has not stopped smiling throughout our whole trip. We could not have asked for more from our fantastic guide.
Gemunu picked us up in a very comfortable, air conditioned car which he used throughout our trip. He is an excellent driver and always made sure the journeys were interesting by pointing out wildlife and other interesting sites such as temples and waterfalls along the way. He would also always be waiting for us at the agreed time and would do anything he could to make our trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
All of the hotels selected by Hayleys tours have been excellent all with nice accommodation, a good buffet option for dinner and pool.
Our 10 days have been filled with interesting activities and Gemunu has gone above and beyond to make sure we understood the history of Sri Lanka. He is also an expert of the wildlife or Sri Lanka and we have loved him pointing our birds and animals along the way.
We will miss Gemunu and Sri Lanka a lot but we are thrilled to have had such an excellent holiday and hope to return one day.
We would definitely recommend Gemunu and Hayleys tours to anyone looking for an amazing holiday filled with culture and wildlife. Thank you so much Gemunu for making it so brilliant.
