Prior to arriving in Sri Lanka I made contact with Tony who sent me information on trips available, we agreed that we would meet and discuss on our arrival, Tony met us promptly as agreed in the riu lobby, he was polite, pleasant and not at all pushy like the tour guides in the beach. We arranged a two day tour of Kandy and the tea plantations. Wow what a trip, Tony and the driver were always prompt, well presented and very informative. The trip was amazing and we made many stops along the way for them to show us interesting places. We also went to undawalee on safari and another excellent trip, saw so much amazing wildlife. Thank you Tony for showing us parts of your wonderful island. I can highly recommend this company for all you your requirements.
