Chan; an amazing guide. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, efficient. Ship did two trips in Sri Lanka. We wanted both and more. Chan sorted it all with no fuss; elephants, Kandy, local Hindu temples, red bananas/coconut milk for lunch, spice farm, tea plantation, Jewellery workshop, unbelievable scenery (and driving). A comfortable car, excellent driver. Fantastic trip and all fitted in (we missed nothing) despite unforeseen delays due to Covid-19 checks on board. Thanks, Chan, it was amazing.

We are so glad to have booked with Chan, when we arrived on the day he was already waiting for us at the dock and was ready and prepared to show us the sites that we wanted to see. He is a friendly guide and very knowledgeable and very proud of his country. He took us to all the main sites and explained with a passion all the important historical aspects. Very impressed by him and the fact that he took the time to find out what we wanted to see and do within the time that we had in port, book him !!

We had a fantastic trip to Sri Lanka that was made so wonderful by Chan's guidance for 2 weeks! We were traveling with 2 young children so he had to be flexible to support changes to itineraries. Chan helped us understand a lot of the history behind the various day trips and also gave us a lot of knowledge of Sri Lanka today. One of my children became unwell and needed medical help and Chan was hugely supportive in a difficult situation. Chan is a great guy and a great guide; you can be confident him!

He was not only knowledgeable, communicative and a safe driver but he also possessed the ability to understand us, and with that understanding, fine tuned our tour to exactly fit us. We will be returning to Sri Lanka to join him in a further tour as he has opened our eyes to this beautiful country. Thank you Chan.

If you are thinking of visiting Sri Lanka with a tour guide, look no further. Chan is very good at what he does. He is patient, flexible, courteous and most of all, shares his understanding of the culture of the island he calls home clearly. We do not typically travel using a tour guide, but under these circumstances, we feel we made the right choice. Chan took us to numerous locations and shared experiences that would have taken us significant time to find. Chan...thanks for the memories and many laughs!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sir Norman Vazquez. It was rally great time with you both in Sri lanka. I appriciate .and honored you Greeting from Sri Lanka Chan

My husband & I just completed an amazing week with Chan touring Sr Lanka. Could not have asked for a better guide to introduce us to this beautiful country. Great communication up front about our goals for the trip and then complete flexibility along the way when we wanted to modify what we planned. He gave us a perfect mix of local flavor, colonial English and Dutch charm and most of all a deep connection with the Sri Lankan people. It honestly felt like we were with a family friend not a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kim Thank you so much for your great review. I really appreciate. And you gave me some grate gifts .I can never be with my wife and children. To swim and sit for food. You made my world little bigger . I bow you and you are welcome any time .I will be there for you on friendly base Thank you so much all you gave With Honner Greeting Chan

We have done many motorcycle tours in different countries but I think this was the one of the best. Our tour guide Chandana prepared a great tour which gave us a great experience in Sri Lanka and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It had everything one would want for an adventure holiday. We started in Columbo then rode the route through Sigiriya, Kandy, Ramboda, Wellawaya, Weligama and back to Columbo. At every stop Chan had made a schedule to make sure our trip was unforgettable. Thank you Chan!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you sir! You are welcome back to Sri Lanka. And I hope you use Toursbylocals.com again! You are great, I honour you. I appreciate all you offered. It was so much fun. Greeting Chan

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 a fabulous guide - he's a great driver and is passionate about his country. I learned so much en route from Colombo to Galle about the island and about Sri Lankans. He fitted a lot into the day from swimming with turtles to visiting a tea plantation. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough - Chan will make you fall in love with this place....if you aren't already!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sir You are the great man I found this year , I learnt A LOT from you I keep my promise soon made a three year plan . you encourage me a lot . and I see also the Kindness of Madam Clear . she was great . I like if you be back . the time I spend with you was the worth time of my life I changed a lot .I made new turn to up of my life Thank you so much , Thank you I need you advises in future too greeting chan

This tour guide was very very good and was a very honest man. Another passenger on the ship tried to lure him away to go a place that we did not wish to go. He refused and for us that showedexceptional integrity. I may go back to Sri Lanka in 2020 and if I do I would certainly try to have him take me on another tour

Tour: #37479, Private group Colombo city up to Galle city tour Special for Catherine Cornell, Colombo, Sri Lanka    view tour
Date: Mar 1/18

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.

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.
