Fantastic tour, we saw everything we wanted to in the one day. Guide and service was FANTASTIC!! Highly recommend

David B

This tour was very nice and fun. The agency was easy to work with and our guide Thilanka was great. He was very nice and helped take photos as well as provide insight on the sites. Most of the sites require additional fees to partake in an activity but the costs are very high. If you do some research beforehand you can help to advise on what sites you’d prefer to see first or are a must for you. I would use this service again when I return to Sri Lanka.

We were in Galle for four days, and we were lucky to have Mahesh organize our sightseeing tours. Mahesh is a wonderful guide. He is knowledgeable , easy to understand, and knows the area well. He took us to a couple of places we wouldn't have visited otherwise, like the cinnamon peeling center and the monument to the victims of the tsunami. It was wonderful having him plan the itinerary based on our interests. I would highly recommend his services.

Mahesh took such great care of me during my solo travels in Sri Lanka and was both my driver and tour guide. He knew my interests so knew exactly where to take me. Cannot recommend him highly enough, the man never seems to sleep! Thank you Mahesh.

We used Mahesh and his team throughout our stay in Colombo and Galle. He and his team are always punctual and the car and van were always clean and driven safely. While in Galle, Mahesh drove us around in his brand new TukTuk to the beaches, restaurants, super market. Again, he was always punctual, safe, friendly and helpful. We highly recommend using Mahesh and his team for your car bookings and travel or tour needs anywhere in Sri Lanka. He provides a great experience at a very reasonable cost.

Very nice and patient driver. We could spend as much time as we wanted in the individual places. For Danish tourists, it feels a little overwhelming that you do not know that a tip or payment is expected. This should be disclosed
