    We were with Tourlk for 4 nights and 5 days and couldn't recommend this company more highly. It was truely a pleasure and a privilege to spend time with our driver, Riz. He was knowledgeable, respectful and helped us make the most of our trip.  We agreed a fair price before we left and he helped us with our itinerary. We were collected from our hotel and toured from Negombo - Sigiriya - Kandy - Ella - Udawalawe - Mirissa. Ris gave us great advice on things to do and made numerous interesting stops along the way, sampling local food, history and culture. He helped us arrange wonderful accomodation in Mirissa. We just wish we had traveled with him until the end of our trip.

    If you're booking a trip to Sri Lanka and want to avoid the hassle of multiple local taxis or public transport, book a driver. If you want the finest of Sri Lankan drivers, book Tourlk.

    Rizwan, our guide,  was excellent. Nothing was too much effort, stopping for us to buy roadside fare and taking numerous detours to show us sights off our route. He seemed genuinely delighted to be taking us to Sigiria, Mineria and then onto Kandy.  An excellent travel companion and really nice guy. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone visiting the wonders of Sri Lanka.

  • Mandy

    We contacted Rizwan of tourlk for a 10 days tour of Sri Lanka,  he's very promptly & Patiently responding to our every queries,  we have discussed many things before finalized on a 10 days tour which covered Sigiriya, Kanda,nuwaraliya, bentota we requested for a custom made plan and they were very helpful in making it to our needs. And he promised us a very good driver and car which is very important,  we had Afraz as our driver and we couldn't have asked for more. Perfect, very safe driving, clean car daily,  beyond expect services were what we got! The hotels booked by them were very nice at better prices than booking.com.  

     We would definitely return to Sri Lanka with them and definitely recommend the service of tourlk .com guys.

    My rating is 10 out of 10! 

  • Alex

    We booked a Driver/guide who works as a close unit with handpicked team of professionals, the way they communicated from the start was very professional and prompt, we would definitly recommend them to anyone willing to go on a holiday to sri lanka, great in communication, great in safe drive, great in transparency and pricing, and very honest guys, we used two guys (one for the road tour of 8 days then beach stay for a week and another to departure, both were great) 

    book them and you will be 100% satisfied.

    we them luck.

    We used Rizwaan to help us get around for out two week trip in Sri Lanka.

    He was excellent. He speaks perfect English and has great knowledge of places to go and things to see.

    We planned the route ourselves and Rizwaan was able to accommodate our itinerary and assist in making some good suggestions.

    All in all I think that Sri Lanka is a difficult place to get around on your own (unless you have a lot of time on your hands) and a driver is essential to make the most of your trip.

    I would highly recommend Rizwaan.

  • Ahla
    Rizwan a mulim driver he is very honest and transparent, booked good hotels for us and he has a very good nice car and a careful driver too! he charges reasonable rates, we were shown around this beautiful country by him. Thank you rizwan for your great service!
  • Barb
    We felt very lucky to have had Rizwan as our driver/guide for almost 2 weeks (Sept. 28-Oct 10) while travelling around Sri Lanka. He was an excellent driver, helped us to select accommodation, was always on time when picking us up and was very knowledgeable about Sri Lanka. He was funny and easy to talk with. He made sure that we tried all of the things that make Sri Lanka special, i.e. stopping for roadside yogurt & honey (so good), coconut milk from fresh coconuts, fresh strawberries and ice cream! He took us to fantastic viewing points to see beautiful waterfalls and tea plantations that spread for miles. Knowing that one of us liked to take pictures he made sure that we stopped for those special shots. Communication with Rizwan, prior to our arrival to Sri Lanka, was easy through email and he was prompt with responding to our questions. He had a newer Prius, which was such a smooth ride and AC (very much appreciated with the heat!) and every morning he would arrive with it sparkling clean and ready for another day of driving Sri Lanka. Rizwan helped to make our vacation one to remember and we are very thankful to him for that. He is a caring individual who takes pride in his work as a guide in Sri Lanka. We highly recommend Rizwan as a choice for a guide and driver if you are planning a vacation in Sri Lanka. Should we be lucky enough to return to the beautiful Island we will certainly be calling on Rizwan again!

    I and my friends spent two weeks of unforgettable rest in SRI LANKA. Paradise on the earth, according to his inhabitants!!! We completely agree with them! Sri Lanka – remarkable places for travel and rest. In the winter, in January on Sri Lanka wonderful weather, the tender sea, abundance of vegetables and fruit! In five days of travel we passed almost all island. The remained time was spent on the bank of the Indian Ocean, on a beach in Tangalle. This place for those who doesn't hurry anywhere, loves a privacy and silence. We thought over the route in advance. With it we were helped by Rizwan which made our rest unforgettable and fascinating. To our happiness, it was to us and as the driver who carried us. And as the guide, explaining everything around and telling story and the relevant information on the country. In our following travel we decided to return to Sri Lanka. There are places at which we didn't manage to look! Our travel will take place in January of the next year. It will be other route about which we don't worry, thanks to our friend of "Riz". "Riz" also I helped us with hotels and I advised places for visit (I would tell, with it it was cheerful and safe). We will be more than are glad to share its coordinates if who needs to take pleasure in a holiday fully! I wish all good luck! I recommend to visit Sri Lanka! Also I can't wait to meet our friend of "Riz" again in January!

Wonderful places to visit, guess what we already booked our next holiday to the same destination! But with a different itinerary-which we will not bother about thanks to Rizwan Who made our holiday a memorable and exciting one, luckily we got him with us as our chauffeur driver who drove us around and with relevant informations. Also helping out with suggesting places to stay and places to visit (i would say he's so helpful and fun to be with)We Gladly recommend him if anyone needs to enjoy thier holiday to the fullest! Best of luck. Cant wait to meet him again in December! Thanks a million Rizwan.
  • Victoria & Paul
    We have just had the pleasure of having Rizwan Basheer as our driver for 4 days. He is a charming fellow with near perfect English and a great sense of humour. Riz was so easy to get along with and nothing was too much trouble for him. Also a very safe driver on the crazy Sri Lanka roads. We really enjoyed sharing meals with Riz and he took us to some great places. It was also wonderful to see his face light up when we talked about his 2 little girls. We are actually missing his company now! It was a wonderful experience for my husband and I. Cannot recommend Riz highly enough.
