Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Sri Lanka. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
The tour briefing with Richard was excellent and set us up for what to expect in the coming week - he was approachable, professional, very knowledgeable, organised with a great sense of humour! He clearly loves what he does and is very good at it! The tour was first class - my only complaint was that on a couple of occasions (the Paradise Hotel and the lovely one when we visited UtlaWalwe) we arrived and left the following morning in darkness and so really did not have a chance to appreciate how great these places were! ”
We had a fantastic time on the tour, there were lots of highlights for us including the visit to the village, the train ride and Sigiriya. Our guide Manoj became more personable as the tour progressed and dealt with some more difficult travellers in a very professional manner.
A suggestion we had was to make the tour a day longer and have a rest day part way through as without exception we were all exhausted with the pace of the tour.
Whilst we were disappointed that the date of the festival was changed, the replacement meal at the Shangri La hotel was fabulous, thank you!
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and it was the perfect start to our honeymoon.
In advance of leaving for the tour Libby was fantastic giving us all of the information we needed, and was very helpful.
Booking with OTG was easy, and the experience felt personal.
The hotels were all fantastic! I think we were lucky to get a few "honeymoon" upgrades which we appreciated massively. However, aside from these upgrades, I still think all of the hotels were excellent - clean, great service, and in general, very good food.
Transport - great bus, clean, aircon, wifi, comfortable, spacious, water etc - very good!
The guide - Manoj was great; informative, friendly, and able to help with any questions/problems that cropped up.
The tour was mostly well balanced between travel and experiences except for the below...
The difficult balance between time at location vs travel time... Particularly at Sigiriya - I think we could have spent longer there, and had a better chance to look around. As well as at Polonnaruwa.
