Excellent tour of Sri Lanka

I would like to commend your travel company on organising an excellent tour of Sri Lanka for our group of twelve family members.

Everyone of our group had a fabulous time and we just wanted your company to know that the tour conducted by our drivers and guides was outstanding. They were very professional, knowledgeable, considerate, helpful and respectful at all times as well as excellent drivers.

The accommodation at the Cinnamon group of hotels was also very good in Colombo and Bentota and exceptional in Habanara, Kandy and Yala.

The high tea at The Grand Hotel, the walk at Sirigiya and the Yala National Park were  highlights of our holiday.

The information supplied on our drives through Sri Lanka, were very entertaining and informative. Our group always felt very happy and safe. 

Both of our guides were always considerate to fit in with our changes of plans, which were quite a few, to accommodate our group and they were always very happy with a smile and suggestions. As our group consisted of twelve people aged from 21 to 81 it was a challenge for them and they managed it very well. Our holiday would not have been such a success if it were not for the guide & driver, especially our guide taking the lead.

The itinerary was very good and the only suggestion I would make is that the trip from Kandy to Yala be broken up with one nights accommodation in Nuwara Eliya as the drive was a bit long. That may have been because of our delayed departure for a gem shop collection, requested stops, photo opportunities  and also the traffic. Also we would love to have stayed at The Grand Hotel as it was very beautiful and interesting. I am sure that the stopover would add a higher cost to the trip but I would be happy to pay more to stay at The Grand Hotel if we were given the option.

The stop at the turtle conservation place in Bentota suggested by our guide was also a highlight and enjoyed by everyone.

Overall our holiday was extremely successful and enjoyable and we will definitely be planning another trip to Sri Lanka and recommending it to friends in the future with your company, especially if Bandara and Douglas were the drivers and guides.
