How they experienced it
A Terrific and Fulfilling Journey, Top Class.
Pure class! From the moment we – a Swiss Family of Four – first contacted Blue Lanka Tours we felt welcomed and valued.
Their signature motto “More Love and Big Respect” resonated with us and accompanied us on every part of our journey. Our trip was a long time in planning – the pandemic scuttled our plans three times over. Finally, we were able to complete our planning and arrived on 26th December for a 14-day tour. The BLT office team with Reshani and Carol were patient, prompt, polite, and professional at every turn. BLT also helped to recover my delayed luggage and delivered it to our stay along the route.
The owner, Dinesh was ever-present and accommodating.
7 Days Guided Tour in Sri Lanka
The 4 of us are from Malaysia, and we had a great experience with Blue Lanka Tours. It all started with the planning which went smoothly with everyone who responded to us very professionally and promptly, especially Mr. Dinesh their CEO. They will totally adjust to your wishes as well as they gave useful tips and tricks.
Depending on what you want to see, Blue Lanka will guide you on how many days you should stay in each city as well as they will help you with accommodation. They will also arrange tickets for everything after your wishes.
Overall, I highly recommend Blue Lanka tours if you are looking for someone to arrange a top and high-quality trip through Sri Lanka. It was a pleasure to visit Sri Lanka surrounded by smiling people who always gave us good service.
Amazing Inter City Tour with Blue Lanka
We took a 6-day inter-city tour with Blue Lanka with a customized itinerary after a lot of research and careful planning. Our tour planner Mr. Fazna Mohammad was very prompt with the itinerary that included the most exclusive spots. The entire reservation team was very prompt and stayed in touch all the way.
All this while we were in touch with the General Manager who frequently checked on our well-being and comfort without being intrusive.
These guys take touring to another level and are the perfect choice for tour operators.
Thank you Blue Lanka for making our trip so memorable.
- Carry your cameras with you at all times
