Tour Reviews

    The company is very proactive. They were the only one who were reacting on our questions within an hour. Very fair price.

    We are happy with the service provided.

    The guides are professional drivers, the cars are comfortable.  Good English speakers.

    Only point was that our first driver Prasad didn’t offer the local guides for Dambulla and Sigiriya places, only in Pollunaruwa when we asked smd to go with us to the historic place  (usually we were driver to the place and he was waiting for us in the car) - he called the local guide. And that was perfect, as this time we were accompanied with so interesting information while walking in the place, which made sideseeing much more entertaining.
