Most memorable

Reviewed March 23, 2020

Indika wasn't just a guide, he was a friend and a highly valuable asset to us on our trip, amidst this horrible virus outbreak. He worked incredibly hard to ensure our trip was safe and enjoyable despite most public venues begging to close down. If I return to Sri Lanka I wouldn't think twice about hiring Indika again, so welcoming and full of life, and a great conversationalist too!

Recommendation!

Reviewed March 5, 2020

Indika was recommended to us by a friend who already travelled with him - and we were as happy as she was. From start to finish Indika always took very good care of us.

 

Planning the tour:

We planned the tour together before arrival via what's app. He made a suggestion and together we made a plan that fit our needs. However, when we sometimes changed the plans spontaneously during the trip (stay one more night or less, add a detour, etc) that was no problem at all. He never made the impression anything we asked for was too much trouble.   

The tour:

Indika is a very safe driver. He showed us amazing places for food and culture which we wouldnt have experienced without him  and he had great knowledge of his country and the history (that saves money for guided tours ;)). He always looked out for us but gave us privacy and time for ourselves whenever we wanted. He made travelling easy yet interesting. E.g. he told us to better take the train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella (2hrs) instead of Kandy to Ella (7 hrs) - like every blog on the internet - and we are happy that we followed his advice because we had two hours of great scenery but wouldnt want to have sit in the train longer. He also arranged a great Safari at Udawalawe.  After our tour we spent some days at the beach alone but Indika was still available when needed - he would definitely always go the extra mile. So just tell him what you want to do and go from there together. We preferred to book the homestays/hotels we slept on by ourselves (but Indika could also do that). 

Overall we would always explore this outstanding country with a driver again (please note that it is not much more expensive than going from A to B with seperate drivers, but here you have someone 24/7) and we would always choose Indika again. He is a very kind and honourable man.  His English is very good and we had a lot of fun together.

Seing Sri Lanka with Mr Indika Ranasinga

Reviewed October 12, 2019

We are a couple from Sweden that recently visited Sri Lanka for a couple of weeks. We traveled with Mr Ranasinga for 9 days in total and had a marvelous time. We started along the southwestern coast (negombo, hikkaduwa & weligama) and finished our trip inland (kandy, dambulla & kurunegala)

We didn't know much about what to do and see around each location. But Indika helped us figure it out as we went. His english was easy for us to understand and was also very friendly to us which helped to make our holiday fantastic.
