After a bumpy start (guide error about the cruise ship meeting place), our group of six had a very good day with Chan, travelling out of Colombo into the countryside to Galle on the south coast. Chan was fluent in English and shared a lot of information about Sri Lanka, as well as answering our questions. In retrospect, we spent too much time at the tea and spice plantations (where presumably guides receive a kickback for any purchases), and not enough in Galle. Chan was attentive and knowledgeable.
Chan is a great guide who adapts very easily to changing environment or changing interests. We started the morning by going to a tea plantation, quite nice and small scale find. We went on to Galle for a visit of the fort and went for lunch. after lunch we headed back to Colombo, all in all a good day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir Thank you so much having tour with me . It was great Greeting Chan
My first visit to Gaulle was very interesting because of my personal tour guide Chandana. It was a long drive, but it was pleasant. Chandana speaks very good English and he explained every aspect of the sights we visited very well. I have enjoyed his customized tours, and had a lot of fun. I definitely would hire him again next time I come visit Sri Lanka. Highly recommended for visitors visiting Sri Lanka looking for a reliable tour guide.

I have been more than impressed by the excellent planning and detailed explanation and information by my tour guide Mr Chandana in Galle. Chan did his good job to show me that Galle is an excellent place with endless beaches, timeless heritages, famous seafood, garden of the word.....and welcoming people. I would recommend tourists who are interested in cultural and heritage to use his service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much your wonderful comment on me . I would always welcome you once back sri lanka thank you so using our service Tour by locals greeting chan
Chandana was unable to take us on the tour due to an unexpected personal last minute commitment. He arranged for Prabath to be our guide. Prabath was friendly and very knowledgeable and proved to be an excellent guide. Sri Lanka was the "surprise" port for us on our cruise and surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you Chandana for your great communication and we all enjoyed the special goodies at the end of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so sorry for you that I could not join you but I did utmost I could do , I thank you much about understanding i wish you good day chandana
