Last year I started planning a 2 week holiday to Sri Lanka for myself, husband, 2 small children (1 and 4), my father and stepmum. After contacting a few companies we decided to go with Goldi Land Travels and so happy that we did. Communication was fast, friendly and super easy. I am a little OCD when planning holidays and no request was too much. My e-mails were answered by Gayan whose English is fantastic, he also ended up being our guide.
Planning was easy, I told him what we wanted to do where we wanted to go and he would give his notes on it and make it possible. He also provided us with car seats which saved us the hassle of having to bring ours on the plane. He organised our train tickets from Ella to Kandy and the safari in Udawalawe.
We did 6 days in Galle, then Udawalawe, Ella, Kandy and back to the airport. We felt comfortable with Gayan from the moment he met him and he made such an effort to get along with our kids and totally won them over by the end. He made our trip super smooth contacting people when needed, providing very interesting information along the way, suggesting things to do/ places to eat and was always just a text away if we wanted to do anything. He didn't even mind my 5AM trips to photograph sunsets on mountain tops! Sometimes it took us longer than expected to get places (expect a lot of that in Sri Lanka, horrible road network) but that wasn't his fault. Luckily we had a very comfortable van that had enough space for 4 adults, 2 kids in carseats and all our luggage.
We never once regretted choosing Goldi Land Travels for our holiday and were so pleased that Gayan was our driver and guide. Will be recommending them to anyone planning a trip to Sri Lanka.
