        Srilanka 8 nights/9 Days with Mahaweli Tours
        We had a very pleasant experience with Mahaweli. I booked as much as possible before my trip but you don't have to spend time planning, just reach out to them - they'll take care of everything. Highly recommend!

        Great trip!
        I booked an 8 day trip recently (April 2024) with Mahaveli Tours and had a great experience. From the outset there was clear email communication from the Mahaveli team, who provided us with a customised itinerary catering to our budget and chosen key locations (multi-city trip) within Sri Lanka. Our guide was Theekshana who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the sites that we saw and also kindly provided plenty recommendations for local shopping areas and suggested cafes/restaurants etc. Theekshana also went above and beyond to ensure that we were always happy on our trip. Thanks to Mahaweli’s assistance we were able to make the most of our limited time in Sri Lanka and experience the wonderful culture of the country. Due to our very positive experience, we have already been referring Mahaveli Tours (and Theekshana) to our friends and families. We hope to return to Sri Lanka soon and will be happy to book with Mahaveli Tours again.

        an unforgettable tour!
        There is truly no words to express how brilliant this experience has been! The company catered for us so well from the very start, there was nothing left to worry about and everything was done with such care. It was a unique experience which i will never forget. A huge thank you to our guide, Dushan, who really made this whole experience unforgettable. You could tell how much he cared for us and our safety as two female travellers. There were so many personal touches and both the company and our guide knew exactly what we wanted from this tour and executed it to perfection!!

        I can not begin to explain how kind and professional this company has been. From the 1st enquiry to the last day of our tour. They have taken care of everything and us. We will be forever grateful to our amazing tour guide Dushan. The personal, friendly and efficient service. The knowledge and experience they have is outstanding. We will truly never forget this experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

        Excellent service
        Excellent service, we book our ticket very last minute the night before our train journey. Our ticket was delivered to our hotel the same evening! Got straight on the train with no issues and reserved seats. Very good service and response, thanks!

        Comprehensive tour of the key sights
        Prasad and the team were expressly accommodating to our last minute booking and even altered some tour details so we could maximise our time which was greatly appreciated. We met our tour guide Dushan on the morning of our tour. Dushan was a delight throughout the tour, very friendly and offering tidbits of information about the cities and sights. He was very quick to point out exotic animals and photo opportunities along the drive. We had to change/skip a couple of itinerary items due to illness and it was never a problem. Dushan was always punctual and accommodating to our sometimes last minute changes. He even arranged a cake on my birthday which was such a lovely gesture that I really appreciated.

        Sri Lanka adventure
        Our guide, Shanti made our trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable. Patient, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable, they tailored our experience to perfection, sharing rich insights into the country's culture and history. Not only a great guide, but Shanti also took care of us like family, ensuring every aspect of our journey was seamless. Highly recommended for anyone seeking an authentic and memorable Sri Lankan adventure!

        A Taste of Sri Lanka
        Booking with Mahaweli was very easy. I communicated with them via what’s app while I was in the states to plan my trip in Sri Lanka. I was able to customize it the way I like it and even skipping some things that during the trip. I did have some trouble with making a payment with the link but maybe because I was trying to pay while I was already out of the country. The trip can quickly adds up since we had to pay all our admission to everything. When we arrived, we were greeted by our guide/driver Shantha. He definitely made our trip memorable from his knowledge, safe driving skills and kindness! He would get his little treats and had water ready for us during our while trip. His service stood out and made us two girls feel safe traveling throughout Sri Lanka. We were a little nervous with our train ride We highly recommend this tour and if you can, get Shantha!

        Great day out from Kandy good solid climb up Lion Rock and Dambulla caves.
        Over Amilia was a good driver and guide for Dambulla caves. We could have started earlier if we want but we were not aware of this. We were pick up at 7.30 am from Kandy and the Traffic was serious. Our guide at Sigirya Rock was excellent with a depth of knowlegde on the history and the nature around Lion Rock. For us these two tours and lunch was enough. Left at 7.30 arrived back in Kandy about 4pm.

        Professional, flexible service
        The tour company was very flexible and willing to design a tour based on my needs. Dambulla caves and Sigiriya were incredible. The driver was professional and courteous. My only complaint is that insufficient attention was paid to time. I had to be back at my hotel by a specific time and had communicated this to the driver and tour company. However, because we were short on time, I did not make it all the way to the top of Sigiriya. To be fair, it was an ambitious goal to even attempt that in a day but I wish I had been advised to leave earlier or guided a little better during the day. I did book a second tour with this company given my overall good experience and reasonable prices.

        Good experience with train tickets
        We booked our tickets from Kandy to Ella online, and they were delivered to our hotel that morning as promised. No problems with anything. A small improvement would have been to explain why we got 4 tickets when we booked 3, as I had a moment of panic that we had been given the wrong tickets! Mahaweli responded immediately by WhatsApp to explain though, so that was good.

        The best and most trustworthy guides, drivers and experiences!
        We booked this tour before our trip to Sri Lanka and they got in touch with us immediately on WhatsApp. The pick up was just on time and the tour is exactly as explained. We were a group of 4 and there was 1 other person, so it felt like a private tour. After this tour, We arranged all our travels in Sri Lanka thru Mahaweli tours. They reply very fast and arrange everything within an hour. I especially want to thank Geesara our main tour coordinator. Even it wasn’t about the tours and drives Geesara answered all of our questions about anything :) I also want to Nilanka for his guidance thru this tour and thank Pathum, the best and most trustworthy driver we could ever ask for in Sri Lanka.

      Pleasant car journeys from sight to sight. The time and place were individually arranged well in advance. My driver Dilshan gave me enough time for the stops at the places so that I could see everything at my leisure. I highly recommend Mahaweli Tours. Many thanks and all the best

      As a traveller on my own, I always like to do a guided tour on my first day in a new city/town to help me get a feel for the place. With only two nights in Kandy, this was even more important. The great customer service started right after booking when Dilani messaged me to confirm my booking and offer assistance if I needed anything else for my trip. The day before the tour, my guide, Harry, messaged to confirm pick up time and location. I was also able to make suggestions for what I wanted to see. And when I needed an HSBC atm, he knew where to take me! Highlights include Temple of the Tooth, Kandy Lake, the viewpoint, royal botanical gardens - with monkeys! - and then stops st boutiques for shopping if you want.

      Had this tour on my first day in Kandy, trains were on strike during my visit so I was super late, we started like 1pm I think (thankyou for adjusting!). I was with Nisantha, a great guide. We went to a war cemetary, a tea factory, a gem store, to the longest river in Sri Lanka (forgot the name) and to the Temple of Tooth (but we werent able to go inside it cause there were like lots of police that day standing outside and will be hard to get in, so I just went the next day). At the end of the tour I wanted some kotu roti, so we went to a place which i forgot the name and eat (best kotu roti on my entire stay in Sri Lanka). Booked my Sigiriya tour with them too. Very safe! Thank you so much!

      It was a pleasant trip.
      Nicely arranged by the tour advisor Prasad.
      We have covered the temples during our stay and the driver by the name of Jehan guided us. He gave us the brief history about them.
      They were punctual and made our journey extraordinary.

      The tour operator, Mr. Prasad was kind enough to tailor the tour to our liking and preferences.
      Everything was well arranged, nothing was rushed, and we had plenty of time to complete most items on the itinerary.
      Nishantha, our guide / driver had extensive knowledge of the city, and kept us entertained with the history and culture of the city.
      Highly recommended. Not to be missed by any person visiting Kandy.
