    Nous avons voyagé 9 jours avec le Team à Charmal.

    Le voyage depuis Tangalle jusqu'à l'aéroport pour le départ, environ 700km.

    Tout a très bien été, notre chauffeur conduisait avec beaucoup d’attention, contrairement a une grande partie des autres voitures, Bus etc..

    Quelques fois il a dû prendre des routes pas toujours idéales pour une voiture de tourisme mais toujours avec prudence.

    Il était toujours ponctuel et avec le sourire.

    Charmal nous a contacté plusieurs fois pour être sure que tout était parfait.

    Je recommande cette jeune société pour un tour authentique au Sri Lanka.

    Dream holiday were punctual, the car was very luxurious and drive was pleasant. I used him for just a one day transfer and he was easy to get along with and knew a lot of information about the places that we passed. Would recommend him.

    We travelled SriLanka for 8 days with Charmal and Rajitha. They took take of every detail of the trip. From airport pick-up, helping with getting local SIM card, places to visit, restaurants that match our requirements...everything was taken care of.  Further, they would give suggestions about what was best suitable for us and left the decision to us. This gave a lot of flexibility to choose from the options available. If we wanted to visit more places than already mentioned, they were always accommodative of our requests. More than that, they would go out of the way to satisfy our requests as in the case of visiting Unawutana beach or the Dambulla Stadium. 

    Additionally they are wonderful company. Their knowledge  culture and cuisine  is very vast. A special thanks  to Rajitha for his guitar performance. 

    Highly recommended. Thanks to both of you..you made the trip happen. Good luck.
