A complete tour of Sri Lanka's highlights
It was a thorough tour of the wonderful highlights in Sri Lanka. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, easy going and so much fun to converse with. The accommodations were more than comfortable. The various sites included were very memorable. Enjoyed all the breakfasts and also enjoyed the views while driving. The tour was well organized and went without a hitch. Having WiFi in the car was an added benefit. I highly recommend this tour if you visit the country for about two weeks.

Good day all round
Enjoyed my day with Sanka. Still suffering from the Easter bombing, Sri Lanka has a dearth of tourists which was sad to see. We missed the fishermen at Galle because they had no tourists to impress. On the positive side I had a private tour where I was the only visitor at each site. Sanka was a good companion all day and he taught me much about the local culture and the people. Recommended as a great way to have a tour with total flexibility around time. Good luck Sanka and I hope the tourists return soon.

Fantastic experience
Recent events in Sri Lanka are very sad. I want to focus on an excellent experience during these troubled times. The Virgin white tea plantation, Handunugoda estate, run by 'Mr Herman' is one of many jewels in Sri Lanka. The gardens have such a variety of plants including white, black and green teas (obviously), coconut, papaya,bread fruit, black pepper, mango, cinnamon to name just a few. All in a perfectly manicured setting. For me it beats any National Trust gardens in Kent (the garden of England) and that is hard to beat. The tour of how the different teas are picked and made was fascinating. Topped by a piece of cake and a perfect cuppa. Mr Herman was very humble and personally expressed his gratitude for attending his plantation at such a troubled time in the country. Let's hope everything settles down again so that more people can experience this marvellous place. If you do visit then expect to spend 1.5-2 hours there.

Superb Tour of Anuradhapura & Polonnaruwa
I am visiting from the USA and had an outstanding private tour of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa with Sanka. I really liked being able to go at my own pace and the comfortable vehicle. I was also able to stop and go as I needed to spend more time in certain historical monuments. It helped me study them and take great photographs. Sanka was very kind and helpful throughout. I hope to use their services in the future and recommend them to my fellow-Americans.

SANKA and MANZIR from Red Apple Colombo Tours were Fantastic, nothing was any trouble and always aiming to please. They suggested Matale Provence to visit for the Day I was not disappointed very beautiful area untouched and undiscovered by Tourists, ended the tour with Sembuwaththa Lake which is amazing and unexpected. Red Apple Colombo Tours also offer a Free City Tour which was a nice bonus to see the city Highlights. Udawalawe National Park Elephant Safari was the absolute Best experience. Thankyou Sanka and Manzir.

Amazing trip with an amazing tour guide
Manzir and his driver were the best experience I have ever had while traveling 35 countries. He was always close to advise me on what to see and what to buy so I would not be scammed. He took me to amazing places with few tourists, told me about Sri Lanka and its people. I totally recommend him if you are traveling here and I will surely ask him again if I am ever in Sri Lanka. Kudos.
