Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot thank Deepthi enough for organising and delivering the most wonderful Sri Lankan holiday. My husband and I only had 4 weeks notice to organise a trip to Sri Lanka once we received confirmation from World Vision that we could visit our sponsor children over there.

Deepthi and Tropical Lanka Getaways were recommended to me by my sister, a former travel agent herself, who couldn't speak highly enough of Deepthi. I contacted Deepthi with our thoughts and ideas for the trip and she replied almost immediately with her suggestions.

It was obvious from our first conversation how passionate Deepthi was about sharing the best of Sri Lanka with us. Her intuitive knowledge of the country and her extensive connections with drivers, tours and accommodation options filled me with great confidence and reassurance. Her communication during the planning and booking stages was flawless and she was incredibly receptive to our requests and queries and was able to tailor the holiday to our interests....seeing lots of wildlife!

Our driver, Adi was incredibly kind, generous and patient and the safest driver I have ever had the privilege of traveling with. Adi stayed with us the entire 10 days and started off as our driver and guide, but ended the trip as our dear friend. We visited Mirissa, Neluwa, Yala National Park and Udawalawe National Park during our stay and had the most amazing holiday. All of Deepthi's recommended accommodations were absolutely outstanding and we felt incredibly spoilt wherever we went. The package price was unbelievably affordable and included so many extras like national park safaris and buffet breakfasts.
Visiting our World Vision sponsor children was the highlight of the trip and whilst they were in a remote area of the Singaraja Forest, Deepthi made it all happen so smoothly and Adi got us there safely!
I honestly can't recommend Deepthi and Tropical Lanka Getaways highly enough. The trip ran so smoothly and the itinerary was so well organised such that there was the perfect balance of relaxation, safaris and sight-seeing. Thank you so much Deepthi and Adi- this was one of the best trips of our lives!

We recently organized a 15-day trip to Sri Lanka through Tropical Lanka Getaways and had a fabulous time thanks to the amazing itinerary put together by Deepthi. Her knowledge of Sri Lanka is incredible as every bit of the itinerary was carefully and thoughtfully organized by Deepthi in providing us with a wonderful opportunity to experience everything this beautiful country has to offer. Every moment felt like an adventure with an amazing new view to wake up to every day - a beautiful beach view in Negombo, Galle and Ahungalla, a serene view of Sri Lanka's amazing flora and fauna in Kandalama, Yala and Pinnawala and a breathtaking view of the sunrise and mountains in Ella and Nuwara Elliya. Deepthi included multiple family friendly activities to make this a memorable trip for our 6-year-old - this included a trip to an Elephant orphanage, an authentic Sri Lankan village tour, a historic train ride and reservations at the best Sri Lankan hotels with fantastic family friendly facilities. Deepthi had also organized for a spacious vehicle with a comfortable booster seat for our daughter as our trip involved long road trips. Our trip was made extra special by our most excellent personal tour guide, Mr. Hilmy Cassim, who made every effort to ensure our comfort and safety in making our trip an incredibly memorable one. We would highly recommend Deepthi and her team at Tropical Lanka Getaways with organizing a family friendly dream holiday in Sri Lanka (and indeed, any other location). We look forward to asking Deepthi to organise a fabulous tour for us for our very next adventure!

We had a brilliant time in Sri Lanka. Every day was a new adventure, with great food, wildlife ( monkeys ) hanging off your hotel balcony, friendly locals and amazing scenery.

Deepthi at Tropical Lanka Getaways organized the itinerary and made adjustments when we requested. Her advice was spot on and her on-going assistance was appreciated.

Our driver / guide Mahinda was with us for the whole trip. He was outstanding !..friendly, well traveled, constantly positive, an advocate of Sri Lanka's many highlights. He had even spent some time in New Zealand & we had a few long chats about that. His insight into local & street culture were a big part of our enjoyment of this trip.

Tropical Lanka Getaways was recommended to us by a friend and we were very pleased we got them to organise our trip to India and Sri Lanka. While Tropical Lanka Getaways specialises in Sri Lanka holidays, Deepthi also organised a three week tour of India for us. Our tours in both countries were excellent and we were very happy with the itineraries, accommodation, drivers and guides. In putting together the itinerary, Deepthi was very responsive to our requests for changes. While we had a broad idea of the places we wanted to visit, Deepthi was able to fill in the details with lots of enjoyable local activities, including a cooking school in Galle, Sri Lanka, a tiger safari in Ranthambore, India and guided tours in New Delhi and Jaipur. All the arrangements worked like clockwork. We would definitely recommend the services of Tropical Lanka Getaways for anyone considering a holiday in Sri Lanka or India.

Had an amazing holiday, the itinerary was perfect and was exactly what we wanted to do with a mix of outdoor activities, cultural sightseeing and relaxing at the beach. Was all very easy and stress free. The accommodation was excellent. Our driver was fantastic, very reliable, punctual and knowledgeable, he really looked after us.
Excellent follow up after the trip to make sure everything went well. A great experience and would and have already recommended Sri Lanka and Tropical Lanka Getaways to family and friends.

My husband and I decided last minute that we wanted to go on a holiday to Sri Lanka. With only 3 weeks till our holiday vacation break Deepthi was able to deliver the most wonderful 2 weeks around a large part of Sri Lanka. We had our own private driver/guide from airport pickup till airport departure the whole time in his Toyota Prius. Deepthi considered our interests and organised 8 amazing hotels, 2 safaris, the blue train trip through the tea plantations and numerous other side tours. We experienced beaches, mountains. plains, lakes, cool climate and hot climates all in the one country. Everything was done for us in regards to the land content. No need to stress and our guide certainly looked after us. We felt like royalty and is this our new standard for a great holiday. I would 100% recommend Tropical Lanka Getaways for anyone who enjoys being looked after for a great price.
