My wife and I were travelling Sri Lanka as part of our Honeymoon and it exceeded all expectations. Our guide, Ranjith, was a star who is an absolute credit to the professionalism and courtesy of OnTheGo tours. Everything was planned and executed to perfection and he even added things to the agenda as he got to know us better and know what we liked. I would not hesitate to recommend OnTheGo and Ranjith in particular to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka. His smile and attitude was infectious and he really took our tour to a whole new level.

Thanks to OnTheGo for their patience and help with all the changes I wanted to make along the way to our agenda! ”

Tour was excellent. Driver Keith knew his country well. He was skilful, courteous and extremely helpful. He was very flexible to our needs and always gave great suggestions for extra tour options. He kept us supplied with water on board and kept his vehicle spotlessly clean every day. He drove very safely and was expert in the driving culture both in the cities and rural areas. He related well to our adult children and was extremely respectful of all of us. Could not ask for better.

Tour was well planned and well paced with one night stays usually followed by 2 or 3 night stays. Hotels were mainly excellent. Assistance with arranging a birthday cake for Judi's special birthday at the beautiful Langdale hotel was much appreciated. All agreed it was a great trip. ”
