Real reviews from Real guests


3 great tours - would highly recommend

I started looking at independent tour guides having read online that you get a much better experience than you would with your holiday company. I was a little nervous looking around, so if you are feeling like that I can assure you there is nothing to worry about with Tony and his father!

We did 3 great tours to Galle, Kandy and Yala safari. All 3 days were very enjoyable and there were so many extra stops squeezed in along the way so we saw so much more of Sri Lanka than we could have anticipated. Tony and his father were very friendly and great tour guides. The cars and drivers used were good too.

We arranged our tours through facebook and it was all made very easy and we always got a quick response
