          Great day at Kanneliya Rainforest
          We had an amazing tour to the Kannelyia Rain Forest today and highly recommend to book a tour with Roshan and his team. The trip was well organized, great communication beforehand and we got to spend an amazing time in the rain forrest, seeing the beautiful nature and even a few animals. There was no rush at any point and we finished the tour with a lovely lunch next to the river.

          Kanneliya forest reserve visit
          Great tour! I chose a two-hour hike to the cave and waterfall. It was a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Special thanks to our wonderful and amiable driver, Vimukathi, and to Ceylon Tour Sri Lanka.

          Go to Sinharaja Forest! You won’t regret it!!! :)
          We did the Sinharaja Rainforest Tour and it was awesome. Seemless pick up, excellent careful driver, complimentary water and snacks for the car. When we arrived, we had an amazing guide with 20+ years experience. He clearly knew the forest and it’s animals so well, and we saw snakes, lizards, frogs, monkeys, a giant squirrel and a scorpion, as well as getting information about lots of trees and plants. The walk is beautiful and not too strenuous, and leech socks are provided. Lunch was at a stunning waterfall where we could swim. After our rainforest experience, we were taken to a tea factory as an additional opportunity which was totally free and very interesting, with beautiful views over the mountains and forest. Highly recommend this tour to anyone. It’s not touristy at all and so so beautiful. It felt like a slice of paradise, surrounded by nature!

          Experience of a lifetime
          Visiting the Sinharaja forest has been a life changing experience in all aspects. Great organisation and communication! We want to say a special thank you to Mr Wigitha, our tour guide inside the rainforest. He is so knowledgeable, humble and he carried a beautiful aura about his passion for nature and way of life. Thank you and we hope to do other tours with you again !

          Stress-free and awesome
          We booked this the night before and everything was seamless from the moment I paid! Roshan was super helpful, called straight away and picked us up promptly the following morning. Our driver, Padmal, was really nice and gave us a good comfortable journey up from Galle to Sinharaja. The tour guide, Wigitha, was excellent and we saw loads of animals including snakes, spiders, monkeys and a bunch of birds and bats. We were even followed by a couple dogs who we named Tommy and Oli and were very good boys.

          An outstanding tour of Sri Lanka
          We had a great time with Roshan and Chathu during our 5 day tour. We had a varied and interesting tour around Sri Lanka which certainly suited our interests. Roshan guided us around his home town of Galle, he is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Rhoshans attention to detail was brilliant. We stayed in Unawatuna which was a delightful village with an amazing beach. Chathu took us to the koggala lake boat ride, we fed a little baby monkey who came on our boat. We were able to get off the boat a few times and met the locals. We had an interesting visit to a tea plantation. We then headed to the udawalawe safari which was amazing seeing the elephants in their natural habitat. We saw baby elephants, and saw the elephants enjoying mud baths. They came close to the jeep which couldn’t have been better. We saw loads of deer and a crocodile and loads of monkeys and wild beasts and birds. We had a lovely picnic lunch in the park. We then moved on to Ella which is a beautiful part of Sri Lanka with jungle areas and epic waterfalls. We had a walk up Little Adams Peak which was real good fun jumping in the tuk tuks. We also saw the nine arches bridge which was impressive. We had a long drive back to Colombo and stopped at polhena beach for lunch. Overall we had a fantastic tour, a big thank you to Roshan and to Chathu who is good fun and looked after us so well. Many thanks from the pensioners on tour. Graham and Jenny

          Excellent Experience, Udawalawe National Park Safari
          We did the Udawalawe National Park Safari with BTR SL. We had a spectacular private tour. They were early picking us up and greeted us with water and peanuts for travelling. The driver was very consciousness and knew the areas well. We went with the guide that took us in the Jeep and we saw probably at least 75 Elephants, many Water Buffalo, crocodiles, large Monitor Lizards, spotted deer, Rabbits, Peacocks, Black Fox, Sri Lankin Eagle, and many different bird species. We had the best lunch served overlooking the lake and wildlife. I would recommend BTR SL as your personal tour guides! Thanks so much for making our excursion extra special!

          Fantastic. Easy. Personable
          This was the easiest and honest tour company ever. Rohan was very accommodating. We did the Sinharaja Rainforest tour. Rohan provided us with leech socks upon request. He was present for pickup (which is very nice and when the owner of the company takes time to meet you) and gave us the itinerary along with water and snacks. These little touches really show the attention to detail and how personalized the tour is. As he had mentioned there were "No Hidden Costs". Everything was as specified and the entire day went seamlessly. Our guide in the rainforest was great and provided a great lunch by the waterfall. The jackfruit was from his garden and was delicious. Transport was accommodating to my daughter's car sickness and took extra time to get to the destination so she felt better. Thanks Rohan!!!

          Great experience
          Our trip went as planned, without any inconvenience. We had an excellent guide who told us many interesting things about the rainforest and the animals that live in it. He observes very good, he showed us many animals - monkeys, snakes, rare species of birds and butterflies... The only inconvenience, which is unfortunately unavoidable, are leeches.

        Searched for long time trying to find a tour to Udawalawe that start late because we want to go surfing in early morning, so I contacted them, replied very quickly and changed the pick up time for 10am.

        The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a good relationship with the driver of the jeep who would stop when asked too so the guide could point, even the most small, details out.
        The pick up was smooth and don’t worry if your hotel isn’t on the list you can add yours as I did and the pick up was confirmed the next day.
        You have to pay for the entrance in to the park as well as your package but all it was worth the money.
        A very well organised trip.

        We absolutely loved our Safari at Udawalawe National Park. We were picked up at 8:30 and taken to the park. Our guide Ruwan was a very amazing guide. He told us interesting fun facts and stories. We loved listening to his 19 year experiences. He literally drove past and reversed. It was magnificent as it walked right in front of us! Or guide actually made the safari so fun and a beautiful experience. Honestly he had such a great laugh and made the trip so enjoyable. Thank you so much!

Hugely appreciated the quick response and flexibility. The jeep driver was professional and we had a fantastic tour! Thank you again.

        This tour was amazing! We were picked up by Roshan from our hotel and then driven to our safari drivers house. From there we entered the national park and picked up our guide. Our guide was so kind and knowledgeable and helped us see so many animals including elephants, crocodiles, birds and deer. We also had a delicious home made Sri Lankan lunch which we ate in the middle in of the national park. It was a great day, definitely recommend this tour!

        We got picked up on time by Roshan & driver. We had a very comfortable &safe drive to the park. We were met by our guide , sat in a comfortable jeep. What a day we saw elephants up close &lots of other animals, we were in the forest for a long time, nothing was too much trouble for the driver. We had a lovely lunch & carried on. We were taken in a quiet part of the forest hardly any other vehicles about seeing lots of beautiful birds crocs in the water & led at the waters edge. Beautiful deer. On the way back more sightings of elephants . When we got back the guide showed us his lovely garden all the fruit he is growing. It was a great day ,we got dropped off at our hotel, with fabulous memories & great photos.

        Really good tour with very knowledgeable and serviceminded guide.

        We saw elephants, birds, buffaloes etc. The guide really did a lot for us to see as much as possible on the tour. He was also very good at explaining about the animals.

        The lunch included was really delicious and was served in an area with really beautiful views.

        Thank you for a great experience.
