How they experienced it

Beautiful Sri Lanka with Blue Lanka Tours and Lasantha

Booked with Blue Lanka Tours based on TA ratings. Process made very easy thanks to Natasha.
Arrived to meet our host Lasantha (Lasa) chauffeur/guide. Great guy! Spent 6 days touring Sri Lanka and enjoyed every moment from Colombo to Dambulla, Sigiriya and Kandy. Tour made extra special by Lasa who added extras along the way that were more tailored to what we like which included not following the masses. Wish we had more time in Sri Lanka but that’s how it goes. Thanks Blue Lanka and in particular Lasantha and your lovely family.
