    Mr Nishantha was a fantastic guide for the day we had so much fun with him and also felt so safe he helped us in every way he could and showed us the best ways to see the things we wanted to see. His car was comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our day and will definitely request him when we return to Sri Lanka, 10/10. The company contacted us very quickly and organised our day very well. Thanks again Emma

    We were on a 17 night cruise starting at Dubai and Colombo was one of the ports visited. I contacted Beyond Escapes via email. A team member of the company by the name of Ashika got back to me via Whatsapp with all the information I requested. She is so professional and did all the arrangements for me. A couple of days before we arrived, Ashika even took the time to Whatsapp me the name and tel no of the driver cum guide that will be picking us up. When we arrived the driver/guide was waiting for us at the pier with a big smile. Van was very clean too. Tour was very good---we saw many of the city highlights including the Kelaniya Temple. The local buffet lunch that the driver, Mr. Sunil brought us was very good and place was very clean. Overall we love this tour and will highly recommend to other cruise passengers. Thanks Ashika and Mr. Sunil.
