    Dirk at Ceylon Escapes was the only travel agent in Sri Lanka who read my request of what I wanted to do & worked an itinerary to suit. I had approached 14 other travel agents & only 2 responded. The other did not read my requirements & made a standard offering. When asked to quote in £sterling, Dirk was spot on whereas the other wanted to charge 1.3 times more !!!
    The entire trip went without a hitch although there were negative news media about the situation in Sri Lanka. I did not face any fuel shortage, power cuts were usually 1 - 2 hours maximum, WiFi in most places was good.
    Amila my driver was very knowledgeable, knew of my likes & dislikes as far as food was concerned & chose the restaurants accordingly. He also arranged the local safari jeeps/ guides which meant I saw the leopards at Wilpattu, a huge variety of birds in Bundala etc. Yala was a little disappointing but did see elephants, one whose trunk was less than one metre from the jeep. Wow, my dream fulfilled with all the things Ceylon Escapes had arranged including seeing dolphins & whales.
    I would 100% recommend Ceylon Escapes as a very reputable travel agent. Dirk is very knowledgeable & he chooses the drivers & vehicles with great care. I would recommend a people carrier as you are higher & see a lot more, travel in comfort

    We were very lucky to get Dam and Sam as our guide and driver. Their itinerary is well prepared to ensure we covered most of the must see attractions and made sure we were well taken care of. Both of them, especially Dam, were very attentive and prompt to our needs and requests. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and we really enjoyed our trip very much. Highly recommend to engage Dam as your guide!

    Thank you very much for all you did. The tour was wonderful in Sri Lanka, were beautiful and the accommodations were perfectly selected. I also wanted to let you know how much my family enjoyed the company of our guide Suranga. His knowledge of the countries, his professionalism and his attention to detail are what in my mind, made the trip as magical as it was. As he would say, "so it was!" Thanks again

    We spent just under two weeks travelling round Sri Lanka with Mr. Sampath as our driver. Despite the incredibly hectic roads of Sri Lanka we felt incredibly safe and Mr. Sampath is a great driver. As well as getting from A to B, he acted as our fixer and helped sort out countless activities - such as safari and cooking classes - as well as recommendations of places to visit. Despite the economic and political issues in the country we never felt this affected us and didn't anything away from our amazing visit in this beautiful country.
    One thing I would mention is that we thought we could pay on card although ending up sending a bank transfer which proved slightly more complicated. If we were doing this again we would bring USD which will also help with the Sri Lankan community with rising inflation on the Rupee.
    Overall incredible visit and would highly recommend this company.

    Thanks to Sri Shannon Tour, I was able to make the best of my tours. I'm currently in the midst of my 10 days tour which is flexible to any changes. However, in the first 3 days I was able to cover Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Mihintale and Sigiriya ancient ruins, and in between I had the opportunities to visit Aluviharaya rock caves temple and much more. We even had the opportunity to see wild elephants without going on a safari trip!

    I used taxis arranged by TravelbeingdoM from Colombo to Arugam Bay and then back to Colombo. They were long rides but the fantastic service by TravelbeingdoM made the journey so comfortable. Althaaf was very prompt and professional with his communication. And the cars and drivers sent by them were very very good. I travelled alone with them and there was never a time I felt unsafe. On top of the great service, their pricing is very reasonable. I would highly recommend their service in Srilanka.

    Excellent service! We used TaxiGo for the majority of our holiday around Sri Lanka having had a bad experience with a different company when first arriving. Francis was excellent at communicating with us through WhatsApp and organised drivers to pick us up from different locations across the country. Even when we requested a last minute driver to take us to Mirissa for the day and back he was happy to help. All the drivers we had were friendly, professional and prompt. Thank you so much for helping to make our holiday relaxing and enjoyable!

    I could not recommend Aerizo Tours more! Starting from the initial conversations and the itinerary alignment, it all felt very promising. The communication with Dan has been excellent. He is very flexible, helpful, always reachable and most importantly transparent. Our driver, upon our request, was Chanaka! But this guy is much more beyond a driver; he is an experienced guide and a protector in every moment of the trip. Chan has a very high sense of responsibility and professionalism. He is a genuinely kind soul and an adventure seeker who loves his country deeply and who adapts the programme according to your tourist profile. He is very knowledgeable and eager to share his passion. He attended all our activities (safaris, trekkings etc.) and was always there to ensure our security and satisfaction. He was always on time, having the car in excellent condition, driving very cautiously, being fun, easy going and discreet and answering every single question. Chan, we are so thankful we have experienced amazing moments with you and thanks to you!! We hope we and our friends will travel with you again!

    Sri Lanka truly exceeded all of our expectations. It was an amazing trip from start to finish with the people so welcoming from start to finish. It was made all the better by having Mahesh as a driver who was an excellent guide and went above and beyond for us throughout the trip to ensure we had the best time and saw all that the country to offer.

    We would have missed out on so many amazing experiences if we had not had Mahesh as a driver. He new all the best secret little spots and view points which helped break up the travel and advised how to optimise our trip and ensure we were not in the car for too long at any point. I would highly recommend him and he will ensure you have an amazing time.

    Can't wait to go back and visit again in the future.

    Quick and caring response from inquiring to the end of the trip. The suggested itinerary was nice and the cost was reasonable. They rose to the occasion even during the trip. The driver was friendly, trustworthy and had good sense. The whole travel was comfortable and satisfying. Highly recommended.

    I was traveling alone and Hiran made me feel well taken care of. He got last minute tickets and deals for me and was a pleasure to talk to. He really cares if you’re having a good time and that you feel safe. He ensured I saw as much as possible in the time we had but also had it be on my schedule. Thanks again Hiran!

    We had very great time with our driver Nuwan in Sri Lanka. We travelled with him for 15 days. He is a very experienced driver and has the knowledge as well of a guide. He could explain a lot about the history of the cultural places and the wildlife in the jungle. His englisch is very good. He could arrange everything like a travel agent. He is so friendly and taking care about us. We had a lot of fun with him. He drives careful. He is so reliable and always on time. The car is very comfortable and always clean inside and outside. I wish I would have such a clean car at home😉we could highly recommend Nuwan. We will miss him and would be happy to stay with him in touch. We wish him all the best for the future and a lot of traveller guests. Visit beautiful Sri Lanka.
