          Great experience
          We can highly recommend the tour. The waterfall is stunning, and you can even have a bath. The tour guide was very helpful, and the food was absolutely delicious and for us, a very special meal. We ate it the traditional way with our hands and in handmade pottery and plates. All in all, it is very recommendable.

          Amazing adventure
          Our experience was more special than I can describe. Our guide was thoughtful and put us in front of elephant families, a crocodile, and hundreds of birds. I am a birder and was able to key out 61 species. The trip was simply wonderful! So many thanks to our amazing guide and for a life changing adventure.

          Good trip
          In spite of the rain we had some good close up views of historic buildings and monuments. Great way to get an overall picture of the city

          One of those once in a lifetime things you’ve got to do!
          Lakpura organised our tickets and our drive from Negombo. Everything worked like clockwork and we were at Colombo Station in plenty of time. The train ride was everything it’s cracked up to be! Relaxing, bumpy, beautiful - arrived into Ella and all its beauty 9 hours later.

          Deep in to budhism....
          We were here in a private tour, all info about budism(theory and practice) were well received, we spotted the people doing prayers&ofrandes, learned not to do pictures to people/tourists in front of budha(!).We saw the famous sacred elephant(mummified).After all a religious experience for the non budhist.

          Service with a smile and constantly available on WhatsApp
          My flight was delayed in Dubai and May 2 I contacted Sharon they amended my itinerary and pick me up later. The Same Day without any problem they are available on WhatsApp any enquiries they get back to you within an hour. I definitely recommend this company. I have used them for my last 3 to 4 visits to Sri Lanka from the UK.

          Great jeep safari in Yala National Park
          The driver who met us at the port and took us to meet the safari guide was great. The safari guide was skillful in finding the animals for us to see. We were extremely pleased with the experience from beginning to end. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

          Kandy .. A must too destination
          I am sure it is amazing however having already done Siem Reap etc etc Just about templed out.. The roof however when it shone across the lake was stunning but was shadowed in our opinion by the turtles, Huge Bats, Monitors, Cranes, Egrets Monkeys and Kingfishers in the most amazing TREES surrounding the lake which you can walk around for free... just saying that's all... definitely go here if you can :)

          Nice ride through the countryside!
          Train ride through the beautiful Sri Lankan country side. Only downside is the cost of tickets and we found them difficult to get. There were 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids), our seat numbers were not together, but as the train was not busy we swapped seats, so it worked out.

        Amazing trip. Very well organised by Mahesh and the team. We did three day trip to Sigiriya Rock and Minneriya National Park with 4 kids under 5. Mahesh organised the whole trip plus car seats and our driver looked after us the whole time. Would definitely recommend.

        We did a 14 day tour of Sri Lanka, but the Esala Perahera festival was the prime reason for our visit. We were not disappointed. The sight of hundreds of elephants, dressed to the nines, parading through the streets of Kandy - some of them dancing to the music - was unforgettable. Our seats were excellent and organised by our guide, Ajith Laksman. We told him six months before the tour we wanted good seats, close to the road. But, there is a lot more to the festival than just the parade. I also asked Ajith if we could see the elephants being prepared for the parade which I thought would give us some great experiences as well as photo opportunities. We saw the elephants being washed and scrubbed down and pampered by their handlers like the kings and queens they are. To me this was as brilliant as the parade itself. We also took the opportunity to visit the Temple of the Tooth. This festival is a Buddhist religious event in which elephants are brought from all over Sri Lanka to take part. It is also called the Festival of the Tooth, celebrating the Tooth of Lord Buddha. In the festival thousands of Sri Lankan dancers and musicians from the different provinces parade with the elephants. It is an event of colour and noise and the stars of the show are the elephants that these days wear huge colourful jackets covered in bright LED lights. Our guide estimated that we were among a crowd of around a million people attending the festival. NOTE that alcohol is not served in Kandy during the festival.

        We got tickets from Lakpura a couple of months before we visited, front row in the raised Queens Hotel corridor, great view. We went on the 4th noght, arrived at 17.00, bit earlier than necessary, but lots of interesting stuff going on. The parade lasted from 19.00 till 21.15, but gets longer over each successive night. This was about the max for our kids (7 & 11). Was worried after reading other reviews about not being able to get food or toilets but no problem with either, lots of food stalls, supermarkets open and coffee shop in hotel delivered food and drink to your seat!
        Unique once-in-a-lifetime experience, not to be missed. Difficult not to feel for the elephants though........
