Praveen was an absolutely awesome guide and driver for our group. He took us all around Sri Lanka, to Negombo, Kalpitiya, Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella, and Weligama. He took care of booking any hotel we wanted and carefully curated our experience, with fun stops along the way, and dank food. He really made the full experience seamless, and was even flexible when we wanted to change our plans. Above all he is a super nice guy with a great laugh and really made us want to come back to Sri Lanka soon.

I'm an old traveler who never ceases to moan about the horror of contemporary mass tourism.. I live partly in Asia in the winter..in Bangkok ..one of those old idiots who boringly but TRULY go on about being three people on Machu Pichu or alone on the beach at Kuta Bali..30 or 40years ago..haven't I think taken a "tour" with a single assigned driver (as opposed to one I've hired myself) in decades....but was advised to do so for Sri Lanka..was very pleasantly surprised...the driver Dinesh was pleasantly informative..not pushy..efficient..flexible and the hotels..now that my 5 star days are over..were perfectly comfortable and pleasant ..all in all,again, rather an agreeable surprise...

Well we wanted a trip of a lifetime and we were not disappointed. This was everything we hoped for and more. Praveen tailored the trip, so we could pick and choose the experience we wanted. We read up about the island before hand and spoke to friends that had also used Praveen so we had a bit of an idea about what we wanted to include. We also told Praveen a bit about ourselves, our interests and hobbies which helped him make suggestions about we might like. In the end we decided on the "pack as much as you can" in approach and were mighty glad we did as we have so many memories it's difficult to cover them all. We chose flights that got in at 9am and left at 9pm so we got a couple of extra days for not a lot more. The charming and always smiling Praveen was there and waiting when we arrived and the adventure began. In our 12 days we fit in: 1. An Elephant sanctuary real close and great watching them play in the river whilst we sipped drinks on the balcony above 2. Full body herbal massage was great way to unwind after a day traveling 3.Driving around taking in the busy city streets, the windy back roads, the villages and the Tuk Tuks 4. Sigiriya rock was well worth the climb 5. Elephant back riding with a bit of off roading 6. Polonawarra gave a real feeling of history 7. Temple monkeys 8. Buddha rock temples 9. Fancy ornate Hindu temples 10. Arrack 11. Kandy Lake 12. Fancy hotels 13. Nice local friendly guest houses 14. Really tranquil temples in stunning off the beaten track hidden places 15. Herbal spice garden 16. Kandyan dancers 17. Lion beer 18. Relaxing by the pool 19. Walking in the rain forests 20. Trekking on the plains 21. Jeep safari with most excellent Leopard spotted 22. Walking through tea plantations and local villages 23. waterfalls 24. wonderful roadside exotic fruit stalls 25. City tours 26. Most scenic Ella train 27. Stunning walk up little Adams peak 28.Balcony breakfasts with views to die for 29. Bars shops and restaurants in backpackers Ella 30 Hairy Tuk Tuk rides 31. Bridges 32. Whale watching 33. Baby turtles 34. Mask workshop 35. Kottu Rotti 36. Romantic beach walk 5m from room at sunset 37. Maze of back streets in Galle Fort with great shops and bars 38. To top it all a most delicious home cooked meal on our last night and much more..... and there were a few things we decided not to do once we got there, to give us a bit more "down time" but Praveen is great and goes to great lengths to explain this is your holiday and will change and fit as you go along We really cant recommend highly enough, if you've not travelled this way before - have no worries, or doubts - the best way to go. Local knowledge, wonderful air conditioned top notch people carrier just for you (soon to have Wi-Fi) and tailored to your individual preferences. Praveen was there for us throughout, enough to guide you but also left us to experience most things for ourselves, good balance. I recommend you drop them and e-mail and see where it takes you - have fun!

This is my first time to Sri Lanka, and its the first time i ever travel to a place without detailed research. But this company did it all for me. I would have never enjoyed it the way we did if it wasn't for Thilini and Praveen. Thilini was always on whatsapp ready for all my inquiries and always there. She searched me for the best hotels and she always knew someone at most hotels, she even made the hotel throw a New year's party specially for US. The Hotel picks was absolutely fabulous. We stayed at a 4star and the other was a 5star, with a very good price. I mean i am sure she had a deducted price compared to the internet prices Thilini's response time was a huge decisive factor for me plus her beautiful picks and trip plan. Now when we arrived, there was Praveen, our tour guide + company's partner. This Guy was the Cherry on our every day. He perfected our every trip, with rich info and guided us on tips to be given, food to eat, timmings, best places for anything. He made us save alot of Money. He went out of his way to make us happy and satisfied. He made sure to fit all our activities, made it possible to reach our destinations on time. Took us to the best places. We did, temples, hiking, wrafting, messaging, watersports, elephants, safari, sigiriya, museums, and even Party and relax at our hotel. This Guy was the BEST gift in Sri Lanka. Seriously this trip was ONLY perfect because of you Praveen and Thilini. You made our trip Rock !!! Thanks Alot
