Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nishantha is an amazing tour guide, very informative and shows pure love for his country. Although the tour follows an itinerary he is very accomodating for your needs and can make simple stops and changes for you if you like, which we found very great! Once he gives you a thorough background and understanding of the destination he lets you go off and explore on your own. Nishantha would happily wait at his car for us while we went to get more photos which we loved! 10/10 tour guide, we would recommend him to anyone who wants a day trip to colombo without hassle. Not to mention the snacks he bought for us are sooo delicious!
