    Overall the trip was good. The guide was pretty good. Some of the hotels were horrible. Then a couple of hotels were great... I'm not too sure what happened there but it was a very good way to see Sri Lanka

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
