Kelum is an outstanding guide. He picked us up at the cruise port terminal in his comfortable car and away we went! Kelum was very knowledgeable about the history and people of Sri Lanka. We enjoyed all the places we visited -- especially lunch! Kelum gave us lots of information along the way. He spoke clearly and loudly enough for all to hear while driving. Thanks for a wonderful trip, Kelum. Melinda

Kelum is a wonderful and considerate guide. He gave us a wonderful view of Colombo and as he got to know us, we modified the times in places to allow us to enjoy those things of most interest to us. He met our every need and request and his deep feeling for Sri Lanka he passed on to us.

All 10 of us enjoyed the private shore excursion of Colombo city tour. Thank you so much for your excellent guiding, and extra thanks to the driver who got us close to all the venues! We had an amazing time in Colombo and the itinerary was perfect!
We enjoyed seeing the sites of Colombo as our tour guide was very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions and needs. Especially modifying the tour to suit a birthday lunch and our elderly parents. He was a very warm and entertaining guide.

Kelum was very knowable and very polite. Also his driving in heavy traffic was excellent. He is one of the better guides we have had. The local restruant he took us too was also very good. His English was good.
An excellent tour by Kelum, who also drove our van. We appreciated his demeanour and thorough knowledge. Our tour of Colombo was comprehensive and well explained. Kelum was flexible and accommodated our requests. We are very satisfied with our experience.

We enjoyed our tour with Kelum and learnt a lot about the Buddhist faith. Just be aware that the floating markets were not available to view on our tour - not sure if that is an ongoing issue.
Keule has intensive knowledge about the country, history, religions, etc. and is eager to share. Pleasant personality. A guide to recommend for Colombo and Sri Lanka tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review.

We had a fantastic day with Kelum who was more than happy to alter the days itinerary to fit in with the places that we wanted to see. The visit to local market gave us a taste of the real Colombo that made our day even more special. He has a detailed knowledge of Buddhism, which gives you an invaluable insight into Sri Lanka and the values by which the people there live their lives. Kelum is a quiet thoughtful gentleman who desperately wants to share everything that his wonderful country has to offer.

Our day started with a very interesting tour of the central market area and the Red Mosque. We encountered smiling faces and friendly people everywhere. Kelum made excellent use of the time we spent in the gridlock traffic of Colombo, explaining sites and customs and telling us about the rest of the country. Of the 12 ports we visited on our cruise, Colombo (and Sri Lanka) is first on the list to visit again. A longer tour of Sri Lanka would be a must and we would definitely hire Kelum as our guide.

He is an excellent guide,very professional and knowledgeable, with a fine command of English. I really enjoyed the whole experience. Mary Levering

Gave him heads up on wife's specific interest, and he failed to do his homework. So a point off for that. Otherwise respectable performance and knowledgable of the highlights of what makes Colombo Colombo! Thanks.
Kelum fulfilled all our expectations and provided a knowledgeable insight for our custom tour of Colombo. He was extremely polite and a pleasure to have as our guide and driver. His flexibility to plan changes was a great bonus to making our day so enjoyable.

This was an excellent tour and really exceeded our expectations. So much more personal than with a large group. Worth every penny!
