Sri Lanka Trip Reviews

  • "Everything about this trip was perfect. There was a great combination of sights and activities like walking, cycling, dancing, cooking, riding public and private trasnport and visiting coconut plantation. The itinerary includes places that were stunning and we got to see Sri Lanka at its finest and it also gave us flexibility to decide what we wanted to join at certain parts of the tour. Our tour guide (Indika) was also awesome and took good care of us until the end of the tour. All in all it was trip of a lifetime with great location, stunning views, fun activities and an amazing guide. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have the same fantastic experience as we did."

  • "The tour to Sri Lanka was incredible because of our amazing tour guide which gave us lots of information about the culture of Sri Lanka. However, I woud have prefered if the guide took us to places with authentic food considering it's called Spices of Ceylon and there was not enough option given apart from hotel food."
