    This was a great trip. The itinerary was well planned and Heshan was knowledgeable and able to recommend what to look at and where to eat. The accommodation was better than expected for a budget tour and overall no complaints

    This was a great tour for a quick glance of Sri Lanka. The tour has is a little high paced, but it has a good balance of different activities, travel modes, and free time. Includes all the must see highlights and leaves enough room to explore on your own.
