    Customer care was really good and prices also were really affordable. I recommend vogue jeweller's for couples who are willing to look gorgeous at your special day!
    Thank you VOGUE for your greater support...

    All of the tour was great, although a bit physically demanding in terms of climbing steps. If I had to pick one favourite part of the day it was the add on safari tour into the National Park. It was a pity this cost us a further US$45 per head and required us to forego getting close to Sigiriya Rock. Our driver, Ilham, was just fantastic and did everything he could to ensure that we had a really enjoyable and educational day.

    I had three great days with a lot of highlights Alinghi the way. Buddika was an awesome guide who arranged all the things I wanted to experience and gave me valuable insights along the way. I can definitely recommend this Tour and I would do it again.

    Our day trip to Dambulla and Sigiriya rock was one of the 5 day trips organised by Bentota Trvale Mart. Before our trip to Sri Lanka I had researched and had spoken to other tour operators but I chose Sam as I found him very professional and he is able to quickly grasp the kind of experience one is seeking and accordingly recommend and customise tours. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 children and we thoroughly enjoyed this and other trips.

    The attractions at Dambulla and Sigiriya are indeed awesome consisting of rock temples, frescos and palaces over 2000 years old. We found the site very well maintained. We also had a village visit on the way back and this was something of a highlight for us. If you are doing this trip I highly recommend you ask Sam to put this as add on.

    The arrangements for the trip were simply perfect; comfortable A/c van, always on time, and our driver Dinesh communicated and looked after us very well.

    We climbed the Lion Rock and visited Dambullah with Diyath. He was punctual with a comfortable car and a good guide with lot of information. The view and the historic places are a must see in Sri Lanka.

    A long day due to the distance and traffic but well worth it to view these fascinating sites. Excellent Driver and Guide - Ayela from whom I learned a great deal about Sri Lanka.

    Fantastic elephant gathering in Minneriya NP. We took a half day safari in Minneriya and saw around 60-70 elephants! The best option is the afternoon when the wlephants leave the forest and go to graze, drink and bathe in Minneriya Tank waters. Our driver was excellent, he looked out for the elephants in different spots and placed the car in such a way that we could have perfect photo opportunities. The most magical moment was the end of the day when we saw a group of 25 elephants calmly grazing close to the tank. Well, watching a 2 month old calf was a also an amazing moment. We had a fantastic time! Thank you

    We had such a great day with Dimuth. He offered us a pickup at our hotel in Negombo and we had the chance to modify our itinerary according to our wishes. First we went to Dambulla - very impressive and while taking the hike to the Dambulla Caves we saw a lot of monkeys :) Instead of going to Sigiriya Rock - we climbed the rock right next to it - Pidurangala. This rock offers a spectacular view to Sigiriya Rock and is way less crowded. Later we also had the chance to see elephants. Dimuth is a very friendly person, told us a lot of interesting facts about Sri Lanka and is a safe driver (which is very important, because traffic in Sri Lanka is crazy! :D). I can only recommend booking one of his tours - you will have a fantastic experience :)

    Buddhima was the best guide! There was a giant mix- up with the tour companies, but she handled everything. She was easy to communicate with before the tour by text. She was prompt on pick-up and so friendly and caring. Very lovely experience.

    Our hostel ”New Dambulla city hostel” arranged a safari jeep to pick us up at the hostel and drove us straight to the safari. The safari was great and we saw alot of amazing elephants which was a really nice experience!

    Sigiriya was an amazing place to visit. Eventhough it was a long ride, we enjoyed very much from the view from top. 360 view from the top was fascinating. Our guide explained about the heritage value of sigiriya and he was very helpfull throughout the tour. Also we were very happy with dambulla temple.
