We were met at the airport by our guide, Lishan Abeygunawardana, who looked after us superbly for the next 5 days. We had a 4 hour drive up to Dambulla and Habarana where we stayed for 2 days, visiting a local village to enjoy cooking lunch with the locals and then an elephant safari in a national park. We visited the awesome Sigiriya Rock, a World Heritage Site. It was worth the 1400 step climb to learn about the ancient citadel. The views from the top were amazing. We then drove to Kandy for the next 2 nights and toured the Temple of the Tooth. Lishan then drove us down to Beruwala on the south west coast for a few days of R&R by the beach. Each of the hotels we stayed at were different but all clean and comfortable. Lishan could not have been more attentive during our trip. He is an excellent driver (necessary on Sri Lankan roads) and his knowledge of the history of Sri Lanka and its culture was very impressive. He made our experience most enjoyable and we look forward to returning in the future to further explore this beautiful island with its lovely friendly people.

Booked a tour via secret escapes and assigned a guide through them. Abey was fantastic, he was knowledgeable and spoke good English and eager to explain things . Also his German is fairly good . He was attentive , his car was clean and his driving was very safe . Abey joined us on the walk up the Lion Rock and gave a good insight into it . He has took us on a lovely lake walk and joined us on the elephant safari which was the highlight of the tour , just incredible! The tea plantation visit was lovely but felt the distance to travel there and back for the amount of time you are there did not warrant all that time sat in a car . This part of tour was our only disappointment. I would absolutely recommend Abey as a guide and H.O.T as travel company to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka.

The country is beautiful, the knowledge of our guide Lishan is brilliant and he made it thoroughly enjoyable. We visited many places which would mean nothing without the expertise of a good guide. He went out of his way for us and couldn't do enough, stopping along the way at roadside stalls and taking us to a little place for a lunch stop, and showing us the proper Sri Lanka. His driving is good which is certainly what you need as believe me it is MAD.We really appreciate his service and would recommend 100%.

What a wonderful experience. Greeted at the airport in Colombo by Senevi our guide for the next four days. Stay and city tour of Colombo then safaris in Udawalawe and Yala and Elephant Transit Home. Senevi was truly a lovely gent who shared his knowledge with us, giving us a great experience. We stayed for 11 nights at a hotel on the beach and used HOT again for some further days out including Kandy, whale watching, boat trip and turtle hatchery. Nishan was our guide for these trips and made these experiences very special for us. He certainly knew his stuff and was so friendly.
