Mr Chan suggested an itinerary to which we agreed When our plans changed he was able to amend the tour. We saw elephant on safari from Habarana and leopard in Yala. The best experience was Kingdom Echo Lodge. We had a wide range of accommodation style. The food in Sri Lanka is superb if you are willing to forego hamburgers and steak. Mr Kelum P was our guide and he was kind, professional, punctual and able to adapt the itinerary to suit our needs. Kelum answered all of our questions, he explained aspects

We spent two weeks with Chan and we found him to be a very personable, knowledgable and a skilled tour guide. His previous experience in Europe enables him to understand western culture and combine this with our Sri Lankan experience. Emphasis was placed on flexibility during the tour and Chan was able to squeeze in everything we wanted plus many unexpected extra adventures adding an insight to Sri Lanka we could never have done alone. Chan has become a friend and we would not hesitate to recommend him.

Me and my cousin had a great 10 days in Sri Lanka, Chan has been very helpful from the beginning when we planned our trip. With Chan's recommendation we have seen some unique place that not all the tours go and we got to meet his wife and children too, if you are looking for something that is not standard, you find the right guide! He just give us the right amount of space and free time on our own. Highly recommended.

We had the pleasure of touring Sri Lanka with Chan as our guide and teacher. We saw and learned so much over our 25 days. We saw the usual 'must see' places but also visited many smaller, off the beaten path places that were amazing. Spectacular sites to see - as Chan said - you've seen 90% of what there is to see. So we look forward to returning To join our friend Chan and see the rest. With this said - go see a spectacular country and enjoy developing a new friend in Chan as we did. you'll be happy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great Thank you so much for your comment . I wish you will back to Sri Lanka , always remind you greeting chan

Tour: #27493, Ceylon Rounder 14days special tour For Zoe Shipley, Colombo, Sri Lanka    
Date: Nov 30/14

Chandana was flexible and informative and enthusiastic about showing us his country. We learned a lot. My advice, if you are planning on travelling this way, is to have a good idea about what you want to see, how long you want to spend in each place, because Chan can make your plans work. Also be specific about your expectations when it comes to accommodation, like if you want something close to shops, or with a/c or hot water, you will need to make it clear. We enjoyed our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much , I am very happy hear this .

Chan is an excellent guide, a good English speaker, accommodating, cheerful, knowledgeable, very flexible. We spend a wonderful 11 days with him in Sri Lanka. We can recommend him to all and everyone. We proposed to him what we wanted to see and asked his opinion whether this would be possible in the time available to us. We'd like to thank Chan for the many new and interesting things he showed us in Sri Lanka.
