    An excellent tour, our driver and guide Nimal was superb - as were the Jeep drivers on the safari. They really went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our day and got the most out of it. Couldn’t recommend enough!

    Picked up on time from our hotel, though we had woken up late so didn't have time for breakfast. Fortunately our accommodating driver stopped on the way and was very patient! Very informative and comfortable journey. The safari was superb as was the fishermen break. Well recommend! Thank you!

Jeep driver also the experience safari driver.😊 Fortunately many animals there, specially leopards and elephants. Excellent team work thank you very much Lanka Tour Host.

    The trip itinerary simply does not work. The driver arrived early so our trip started 10 minutes before the pickup time 7:30am in the itinerary. We were told by the driver that we had to enter the Yala Park before 3:00pm. So after more than 2-hours drive from Colombo to Galle, we only stayed at Galle Fort for 15 minutes and visited Stilt Fishermen Weligama for 5 minutes. It then took us almost 4 hours to a restaurant near Yala where we could only pack something before changing to the Safari Jeep for another 45-minutes drive to the Park. We could not see any wild animal in the park because of the hot weather in the afternoon. We left the Park at 5:30 pm half-an-hour before the close time to the same place we packed lunch for dinner. After dinner a very poor one, it took us almost 5 hours back to Colombo and we arrived hotel at 12:30 am expected to be 11:00pm in the itinerary. The traffic was not bad throughout the day and the tour itinerary is simply a trap. One should never go into this trap again.
