We had a fantastic tour guide Lasantha who was so friendly, organised, accommodating and knowledgable and made our trip to Sri Lanka such a wonderful experience.
It is a beautiful country and so much to see and do. We always felt safe and welcome.
Just returned from two weeks with Columbus Tours travelling around Sri Lanka. We were a group of three generations and had an amazing time. Ruwan was our driver, who couldn’t of been any more helpful. He organised all of our tours (dolphin watching, Sigiriya rock, village tour, bird watching etc) booked our train tickets, acted as our tour guide and provided us with lots of history about the country, customs and sights.
I cannot recomend this company enough, from the start of our booking to the hotels which were chosen.
A fantastic experience which was helped by a terrific company…thank you x Vanessa
