How they experienced it

Great company and fantastic guide

We have just come back from a fortnight in Sri Lanka and we had a fantastic time thanks to Blue Lanka tours and especially to Keeth our amazing guide. Keeth’s passion and enthusiasm meant we had several exciting and interesting experiences and we discovered many authentic and cultural aspects of the beautiful country with his excellent organisation, guidance and advice. The Sri Lankans were very hospitable, warm and friendly people which made our adventure an even more enriching and enjoyable one. We were sad to leave such a beautiful place and we look forward to maintaining the wonderful friendships that we made whilst on our trip. Thank you Blue Lanka and a big thank you to Keeth- a true gentleman!
