Jacinta "The Sri Lankan Express tour was a great experience. For someone who doesn't tend to join tour groups this one was perfect as it was short- only 8 days but still managed to cover everything I wanted to and more! The accomodation exceeded my expectations in each location and I enjoyed how the tour was broken up into travel days and free days to explore. We had Tiran as our guide and he was wonderful..."

    Fantastic guide, absolutely put 150% effort in. Very knowledgable and made sure we were all happy. Nothing was too much. Very caring to individual wants/needs. Great tour as a quick insight into a beautiful country

    The whole tour was fantastic. First and last day accomodation, could be better. Substantial but felt like not up to standards (not clean). Aruna was really good. Transparency on Tipping and additional expenses so no surprises especially when youre... Read more

    A good introduction to Sri Lanka but too much time spent travelling in mini bus.

    The unfortunate thing was that we were significantly older than the rest of the group so it was fragmented. The guide did little to socialise and we never had his room number if we needed assistance. The transportation was very good with 11 on the group... Read more

    It wasn't as good as other gadventures tours I had been on. We were taken to a spice garden where we were massively ripped off, it was a pressure sales type visit where they spend two hours showing you products to then fleece you for all your cash in a... Read more

    It was nice. Very chilled, which is what I was hoping for. The age group skewed a bit older which was great. Guide was very approachable, knowledgeable- didn't integrate with the group all the time, which some people complained about- but that didn't bother... Read more

      I was struggling to get seats on a coach tour I was trying to organise at late notice. TourRadar came to the rescue and secured the seats. Not having used them before I was impressed with their rapid response to my initial booking and my subsequent questions.
