Three cheers to Manik Tours !!!
Mar. 2020
Our trip to Srilanka was on 10th March'20 for 4 nights and 5 days. I did all hotel bookings by myself through bookings.com and arranged cab from Manik Tours based on review comments I saw in TripAdvisor. Ranil from Manik was very prompt in answering my questions over email. He picked us from Airport and dropped in a hotel in Negambo. His cousin Dimuthu was our driver for the rest of the trip. He was very cheerful and nice throughout the trip. He kept us engaged in coversations around Srilankan culture, cuisine, history, people etc.
We visited Pineapple farm, Pinnawala elephant camp, Dambulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya in 3nights and 4 days. Then came the shocking news that our return flight to India was cancelled without any reschedule option due to Corono virus travel advisory. I made an emergency ticket booking thro different airline and we had very little hours left to reach airport from Nuwara Eliya. Understanding our situation Dimuthu drove us back very nicely & quickly to Colombo airport by taking short cuts roads. I appreciate the honesty & professionalism of Manik Tours that they voluntarily returned portion of money as they did not cover the entire trip due to my situation. I strongly recommend this tour operator for everyone!! All the best & good luck Ranil, Dimuthu & team Manik !!!

Excellent round trip in Sri Lanka
Jan. 2020
We used Manik Tours to help arrange and to carry out 13 days of traveling around Sri Lanka. Firstly we had a very effective and supportive e-mail correspondence with Ranil before our departure. He listened to our requests and helped with additional suggestions to customize our itinerary including hotels.
During our travel we had Ranga as our driver. We were very happy with Ranga, who is very pleasant, an excellent driver, speaks very good English, and listened to our requests and was at all times completely service minded.
All in all it was a well-organized trip, and we felt that we experienced many sides of Sri Lanka, both with culture and nature and at the same time we could really relax. We can give our warmest recommendations of Manik Tours.

Jan. 2020
We just got home after a wonderful tour with Manik Tours. We got recommended Manik Tours of a colleague. Our contact by email was fast and easy and Ranil Fernando is very professional, flexibel and had good ideas for the round trip. Ranil, who vas our driver, gave us the best experience of our lift. Ranil is a very good and competent driver and he is very good at explain about Sri Lanka and its culture.
During the trip Ranil was very flexible towards changes in the trip.

The standard of the hotels was very high.
When we go back to Sri Lanka it will for sure be Manik Tours and Ranil we will use.
We give our best recommend to Manik Tours

Helped us getting a perfect holiday around Sri Lanka
Oct. 2019 • Friends
We arrived at the Airport, where We had planned for a driver to pick us up. Our driver, Shanoi, drove us between All Our hotels on Our planned tour. We did not expect him to do anything else than that. Anyway he told us about the things We drove by, took us to places worth seeing, helped us booking trips and recommended some different hotels for us. He really helped giving us the Best trip I could ever imagine.
Also he was always on time, and available if We needed him. He Also made sure We always felt safe on Our trip.
All in all Best driver I could imagine, Who acted driver, guide, planner, photographer and everything Else We needed. I would love to book him again, if I'm going to Sri Lanka again.

Great tour, very accommodating
I have been to Negomba before, so I was looking for something a bit different. I challenged him to come up with something unusual, and he came through! Took the river cruise, bird watching and market. I enjoyed just seeing the different areas of Negombo, and he really thought outside the standard tourist stuff. Took me to two really good restaurants and then to a really unique grotto area, to meditate. Thanks so much

Blissful 2 weeks with Ranil around Sri Lanka
Aug. 2019 • Family
Ranil, you have left us with memories that we will always have close to our hearts 💕.
Ranil is a punctual and very safe driver with immense knowledge of roads, culture and history of the land of smiles. He has a humble, calm and accommodating nature and went out of his way to ensure we got the best of our trip. He had everything organised and at no point did we waste time. He showed us some of the best eateries around our trip.
Ranil also entertained my daughter’s queries and was able to relate to her with a smile.
We covered Colombo - Galle - Yala - Ella - Kandy - Sigiriya - Trincomalee and all attractions along the way such as Turtle Hatchery, Temples along the way, Train journey, Dambulla Cave, Pigeon Island etc.
I definitely recommend Sri Lanka Manik Tours if you consider safety on roads, enjoyable trip, someone who has experience in culture and history.
Words are not enough to thank Ranil and Sri Lanka Manik Tours

Sri Lanka with Manik tours (Ranil)
Aug. 2019 • Family
Manik tours - words are not enough to express our gratitude to Ranil from Manik Tours. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and with Manik tours, our visit to Sri Lanka became extra special and a vacation to remember life time. Ranil, was with us for 2 weeks and showed us most spectacular places in Sri Lanka (heaven on earth). We got to experience the real Sri Lanka with him, always accommodated our requests with a smile and went above and beyond his way. Much to mention, but the most important two things from a tourist perspective, Ranil couldn't be any more punctual than he already was - super perfect at time keeping, secondly always at hand for emergency phone call if needed. We got to experience all types of Sri Lanka cuisine which is one of the biggest memory we savour.  Thank you Ranil for such a great experience, we will come back.

Aug. 2019 • Couples
My husband & I have recently completed a14 day driving tour of Sri Lanka with Renil Fernando of Sri Lanka Manik Tours and we cannot recommend him highly enough! Renil was with us everyday and his knowledge , driving skill, language and patience were exceptional! There were some days where we were on the road for 4 or more hrs amid chaotic traffic but Renil always drove safely and carefully!
Renil’s knowledge and insights into the culture, food, history and features of Sri Lankan life enriched our trip immeasurably.
Well done and thank you Renil!
For anyone considering a tour of Sri Lanka we highly recommend the private driver route as the safest and most cost effective way to get around.
For your choice of driver & vehicle Renil of Sri Lanka Manik Tours is exceptional!

An amazing trip through Sri Lanka, where everyone smiles!
Jul. 2019 • Family
For our family trip this year, we had planned a round trip in Sri Lanka. We booked the hotels ourselves and we only needed a driver. Our first hotel (Ice bear in Negombo) recommended us to contact Ranil Fernando from Manik tours.
First we have had a smooth email contact with Ranil, and finally we made the trip with Sameera. We have to say, our trip was fantastic, together with and thanks to Sameera!
He is a very good driver, always cautious, always in time and taking good care of us. We have only asked for a driver, but we have received so much more. He has taken us to unexpected places, suggested good restaurants, and arranged extra excursions for us. Besides, he is able to guide where allowed, speaks good English and has a sound knowledge of his country and its history.
I can only highly recommend Ranil and his team! Isthuthi Sameera!
