We booked a van and driver with Colour Lanka tours for a 9-day family road trip in Sri Lanka. Shan was very communicative, flexible and detailed, and helped us to fine tune our itinerary. The van was spacious and comfortable, and our driver Taranga was excellent. He was a careful driver, punctual, knowledgeable and very flexible. As we had four seniors and a young child in our group, sometimes we had to change plans and make additional stops. Taranga was very cheerful and accommodating throughout. He really helped make this holiday a memorable one for all of us. I highly recommend Colour Lanka Tours and especially Taranga.

Shanal provided us with the best ever family vacation in Sri Lanka. I was in touch with many travel advisors before visiting Lanka for the very first time. Shanal came across as the most diligent, helpful and always responded to all our queries very promptly. I was traveling with my parents and Shanal was open to customizing the itinerary to have right combination of adventure activities for me and my brother and relaxation for my parents.

Madushan was our driver for the trip. He is the best travel guide ever. His car was very clean and well equipped with everything one would need as a tourist - wifi connection, umbrellas for the occasional rains, travel book, music system to play songs from our phones while driving and even extra charging points to ensure we could charge our phones while traveling. Madushan not only drove us around the country very safely but also personally accompanied us while climbing Little Adam's peak, Pedurangala Rock etc. We probably wouldn't have been able to make it there by ourselves. He helped us around with everything one could ask for - buying the best SIM card plan, negotiating a good exchange rate to convert USD to LKR, suggesting local restaurants for excellent meals, helping us order meals with great local customization by explaining to the waiters in local language, suggesting best places to visit around where we were staying, helping my parents relax at the right locations while we took to adventure activities, helping us click pictures at the right scenic locations and even sharing those pictures with us on ShareIt app...Madushan is very passionate about his job and knows history, geography and culture of Sri Lanka very well.

We would definitely recommend traveling with Colors Lanka Tour and Madushan to anyone new to the country and looking to explore the local flavors.

We used Shan for 8 days and could not have asked for a better service! Great value and having someone with knowledge of the areas is such a bonus! Shan was such a safe driver and the car was super comfortable...having air con when traveling in Sri Lanka is a must! We didn’t have everything planned out so Shan was really helpful advising us and fixing us up with accommodation. In Kandy the weather wasn’t great but Shan planned our day out for us and kept us occupied with ideas of what to do! The elephant safari in Udawalae was amazing! Would definitely recommend....thanks Shan for an amazing trip!!

My family had an enriching trip in Sri Lanka for 7 days. It was easy to arrange a Customised itinerary with this tour agency. Our Driver, Mr Gayan is knowledgeable and accommodating. He is also very helpful and cheerful. We are so glad to have him as our driver. I will definitely recommend Mr Gayan and Colour Lanka Tours to my friends. Thank you!
