What people are saying about Kandy

Dee gods was a fantastic tour guide. Multi day tours can be difficult but he kept a really good balance between organised and flexible. I like how accommodations and restaurants are not pre booked and planned because it gives the customers ability to choose to their own preference how they want to stay and what they want to eat. We wanted to eat as much authentic local cuisine as possible and he was so attentive to find restaurants with low chance of sickness and washrooms that were hygienic for us to use. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and content and is a really friendly guy. We got to do all the things we wanted to and more - he even took us to Anuradhapura which was interesting. So it was a good mix of the expected and also some cool things we weren’t expecting because the tour was customised and flexible. The driver was also very friendly and safe . I definitely recommend to use this company and Deegoda for anyone visiting Sri Lanka.

Danushka was very nice and punctual and a pleasant tuktuk driver and I had a great tour and saw everything I wanted to see and he was very responsive to my requests. He was patient and looked after my belongings. I got a great king coconut to try. I wouldn't recommend the Spice Garden to anyone because they just want to sell you something and make you feel very uncomfortable if you don’t buy anything. The only thing I wished he spoke better English, it was a bit tedious with Google translate.

Channa drove me savely to all the places listed and waited there for me. The drive is quite long but I absolutely loved the view to the Sigiriya Rock. He doesn’t speak englisch perfectly, but can tell you all the important stuff. The wood working station and herbal garden is free but they expect you to buy some things. Channa is a really nice travel guide.

Tharanga is awesome! We spent the day together and he was more than helpful! He is easy to talk to, a very warm person and I would definitely recommend him as a guide! Thank you Tharanga ❤️

It was a great day in Kandy. The guide responded to our wishes and my son was even allowed to drive a part of the tuktuk himself. I can really recommend the tour
