Excellent Tour and Organisation !

We are just back from a lovely holiday in Sri Lanka.
PL Tours did a great job in organizing our holiday in Sri Lanka.
We mailed with William and he went out of his way to help us. We changed the tour itinerary a couple of times but that was not any problem.
William was always there to help us and giving useful information.

Our driver / guide Madushan went out of his way to make the tour comfortable, he stops at local fruit shops where he buy fresh fruits for us.

Madushan spoke good English and is always on time, everyday the car was clean.

He know a lot about the country and the places we visit. When we decide to visit a other place as we confirmed with the tour, no problem for Madushan he changed the tour on the spot.

We where also very happy that we took the package included the entrance tickets,

we saw many people squabble about these costs at the places we visit. We did not have to look on these prices and don't have any problems.

Even the Local Guide who organized by PL Tours are on time and know a lot about the places.

We recommend to travel with PL Tours when you go on holiday to this beautiful country!

No Stress, No hidden costs and always friendly with a big smile!

Once again William and Madushan thank you very much for this great experience and we definitely will come back :)

Kind regards,

Kate and Paul
