As an 80 year old solo traveler I’ve been extremely well looked after on my visits for the last 2 years, Nothing, and I mean Nothing has been any bother to them, hopefully, Covid 19 allowing, they’ll be looking after me again for 3 months next January

It was a really pleasant experience to work with them. They provide excellent customized service. We always book all our travels around SL via Discovery including vehicles and drivers. I am very much reluctant to say they are drivers because all of them are so knowledgeable about all the places we have visited. At the end of the tour, they were like family. The full team was very attentive to our requirements. All out Kiwi friends book their tours via Discovery. Hat off to the amazing team. Keep up the good work guys. look forward to seeing you next year

We did the Ella mountain hike in Ella Sri Lanka. We were escorted by a local boy arrange by D.D. who was a villager as well as a young nice boy guide. Throughout the hike we had a nice pace and ample time for photos too. All the guides who work for D.D. are professional and friendly. They senses the local touch and they all are with big smiles too.

We had Athula Jaysekera as our driver. He is a listening guide – he very quickly identified our wishes to see the nature of his lovely country rather than a lot of temples. We really appreciate that even though we did see temples and historic sites. We asked him a lot of questions – and he answered immediately. His knowledge of many different issues according Sri Lanka is phenomenal – we never missed an answer. We had the best places at the cultural dance event – we had terrific seats in the train, and he arranged the best drivers and guides for our three visits in the national parks – Eco Park at Sigiriya, Udawalawe National Park and Yala National Park. During our visits he told us that he doesn't know the names of many birds but in spite of that he is a clever bird spotter. It was great when he stopped the car for different kinds of animals during our long rides between the cities. The rides in his car are very safe and secure due to his long driving experience – we loved his slow driving in the horrible Sri Lankan traffic. Actually Athula is funny, friendly and very professional in his attitude to us as your guests – we loved the week we spent together. All the best Connie Nissen and Kim Conrad Petersen, Denmark

We had a 14 day road trip planned at Live Travel with a chauffeur/travel guide driving us from place to place. We started in Negombo at the beach and then on to Sigirya (Lion Rock) - to Kandy at the renowned Queens hotel (old UK colonists hotel)- Train trip to Ella (tea plantations and Highlands) We truly recommend to stay at the 98 Acres Resort. Gorgeous 1200 M up the mountain. Beautiful view and sunset and trecking trips to Ella Rock or Mini Adams Peak. You have your own cabin with mountain view - amazing! Then we went to Udawalawe Safari park and stayed at a hotel in the Jungle. Loved the shelter for homeless elefants and the safari with elefant families up close, buffalos, crocodiles, lots of birds especially peacocks. We then went to Unawatuna (beach resort) and took our PADI OWD CERTIFICAT in 3 days at the Unawatuna Diving Center. Great place at beautiful beach! About the chauffeur Manoj from Live Travel/Different Discovery Tours: A wonderful guide and driver. Don't drive yourself- it's madness to drive in Sri Lanka! Very friendly, good humour, lots of knowledge about culture and Buddhism. He shows some great places on the way as temples.He's very punctual and is very service minded. It was a pleasure to meet him and we give our best recommendations. If we go to Sri Lanka again, we would definitely try to book Manoj again :)
