Tour: #17399, Special Colombo city tour for Hon Nina Winter, Colombo, Sri Lanka    
Date: Sep 15/18

I had a full day in Colombo after my weeks surf holiday finished before flying home. Chan organised a one day city tour of Colombo for me to help make the most of the time that I had. I can't recommend Chan's services enough. Chan's itinerary allowed me to see a real flavour of Colombo and his commentary gave me a great insight int not only Colombo but Sri Lanka's history. What an incredible city and a beautiful country! Throughout the day Chan was so hospitable and informative. Thank you Chan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grate you gave me a job and really good comments .I am so happy the service which I offered to you. Because it had been appreciated by you Greeting from Sri Lanka Chan

Chan was absolutely fantastic. He was so concerned about all of us. He had the right amount of talk and history. He showed us the real Sri Lanka. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to see more than the traditional tourist sites.

you will not hire a more professional and caring guide in all the world than Chandana. He took us off the normal tourist path to a local market where we sampled fruits that we never tasted before, we went to a typical neighbourhood and were invited into the homes of the locals which was a real treat, he hired the local tuck tucks and we toured around town and we visited a private tea plantation. All this plus we visited the highlight sites of Colombo. The day could not have been better. A 5 star tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir Thank you so much for your kind words, on me . it makes my future and I feel I priced what I have done in the most better way I bend my head to you Thank you gteeting chandana

Chandana had a personal emergency on the day of our tour, but came to the port to meet us at 7am and make sure our plans were in order with his associate. He helped arrange a meeting for us with one of our friends. He is very kind and his English is very good. Thank you, Chandana

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for understanding , I really appreciate your comment . I heard it was a great day for you , and you were happy to meet your friend thank you so much greeting from sri lanka

This was an excellent tour, changed at the last minute to see more of Sri Lanka. A wonderful day and we were able to see some of the real country in a very personal way. Chan was a great guide and couldn't do enough for us - from welcoming us with lotus flowers to the end of the day. He was very knowledgeable and we found out an amazing amount about life in Sri Lanka. It was very well planned and exceeded our expectations - which were very high! Many thanks for a very special day!

Disappointing tour guide and itinerary. The itinerary may have been a communications problem. Chandana was not our guide. He may have been ok.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We're sorry to hear that this tour was less than satisfactory. We've clarified our policy about substitutions with Chandana and offered a partial refund to Mr. Ekedahl as compensation.

Excellent guide and an excellent tour! Very knowledgeable and a fun person. We saw a great deal of Colombo and environs. We had 10 people on this tour. Driver and guide were on time and had a new van which was very comfortable for this full day tour. Great value for the money.Highly recommended.

Chandana was a very good guide. He has profound knowledge of Colombo, is helpful and adjusted the tour to our needs. For example, he took us to to see the house of a family in Colombo, as we had requested the tour to be focused on local customs. On time of the tour, pick up and drop of location he was very flexible.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir , It was very nice comment , I really appreciate it and I feel I did a good job.we toursbylocals always flexible for your service.get your next vacation with my colleague in an another destination or with me , I am very glad on you greetings from Sri Lanka chandana
