Many travellers have raved about Sameera's impeccable punctuality, professionalism and knowledge while being on the road. Sameera and his dad run a fantastic business and are both very kind and genuine men who just want the best for their guests. Cannot recommend them enough!

Sameera picked our family up in Kandy with his Jeep to bring us to our guesthouse in Nuwara Eliya. On the way he showed us one of the many tea fabrics in this area. The day after he brought us to Horton Plains. At the end of our stay in Nuwara Eliya he joined us for dinner! He is such an honest man with a good mentality: we are all people, we are all the same and therefore he asks an honest price for his services. We would definitely recommend to have Sameera as your guide when you are in Sri Lanka. We met him in Kandy, but he can guide you all over the country.

This is a small family run business. Sameer met us at Lake Gregory when we hailed his tuk tuk on the way back to the hotel. On the way, he told us about the main sights around Nuwara Eliya. We liked his demeanor and went to Hortons Plain next day with him. He had got a comfortable open jeep with him. Since there was a drizzle in the morning, the flaps were down so it felt closed but once they were opened up it was a safari jeep. We had wonderful views of the deer thanks to that. He was very patient and helpful during the trip. He did not hassle us to hurry back like we saw some of the drivers do with their group. Next day, we went to the Damro tea garden on his rexommendation. It is a well organised place and nice short tour of the factory. My wife went with him to the temple in the evening and she liked the experience Overall, we found him safe, helpful and knowledgeable of places in Nuwara Eliya

We were introduced to Sameera via our accommodation and what a blessing! He took us to Horton Plains to hike to World's End in his very comfortable jeep for a great price, stopping along the way back to allow us to take in the beautiful views. We also did his "Tea tour" in his tuk-tuk - the most wonderful way to explore the hills around Nuwara Eliya. His generosity and friendliness were endless, chatting and joking along the way and giving us so much of his time to allow us to explore his wonderful home town. Visit to the Waterfall at the end of the tour is a must! We would recommend Sameera to anyone travelling to Nuwara Eliya who wants a friend to show them the best parts of the area.

I bumped into Sameera by chance in Nuwara Eliya and decided to hire Sanaali Tours for a tour to Horton Plains. Sameera's punctuality, professionalism and knowledge was impeccable and I highly appreciate the service that he provided. He is a very kind tour guide and is always happy to engage in conversation to make rides fun and meaningful. He knows the best spots around and helps bring a new perspective to travel. Also, he is a great help to point out the best spots and best angles. Thank you for the great experience. I highly recommend Sanaali Tours to anyone considering a trip in the area.
