Memorable Sri Lanka Holiday - BIG thank you to Olanka Travels Team
"Visited Sri Lanka from 21st Jan to 26th Jan with another 6 friends. The entire package tour was arranged through Olanka Travels @ Sri Lanka.
Even before starting our Sri Lanka Holiday, we were pleasantly surprised with the professional attitude and personal touch of their Senior Tour Consultant ( Ishara Priyadarshani ) handling our booking. They were very flexible in changing the travel plan based on our changing needs. As we were visiting the country first time, the tour consultant was always forthcoming in answering our questions and providing us the travel tips. All the travel bookings and contact information of driver was provided to us well in advance.
From the time we arrived in Sri Lanka until our departure from Sri Lanka , our group was well looked after by the operations team. Mini Bus provided was very comfortable and the driver was very friendly and polite, understood all our requirements and helped us plan the travel route every day and took us to the best places for lunch & dinner.
Olanka Senior Tour Consultant managing our booking ( Ishara Priyadarshani ) also made it a point to come over to meet with our group on day one and had over a souvenir from Olanka Travels.
To summaries I would say, if you wish to visit Sri Lanka, you will definitely get your money's worth if you let Olanka Travels handle your travel needs and if you want a seamless travel planning experience, make sure you ask for Ishara Priyadarshani to handle your travel booking."

I contacted Olanka online about our planned family trip to Sri Lanka. Thamashiya did a great job in pulling together an itinerary that ensured we visited all the sites we wanted to see. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids. Our driver was Ali and he was fantastic. Excellent spoken English and a very safe driver. Believe me, in Sri Lanka, you want a safe driver! Nothing was too difficult and he always accommodated our wants and needs. He took time to explain things, provide us with our options and then help us make decisions. We also had Huzni the photographer from Olanka on our trip which really added to the experience. He was also very knowledgable and had excellent English too. Ali and Huzni joined us for many meals, and were both excellent company. We were quite active and did a number of hikes - some sunrise, some sunset, visited a number of national parks, ate at many local restaurants, and generally really enjoyed the culture, food and people. By choice, we caught a number of local trains between some centres. Olanka, Thamashiya, driver Ali and chief photographer Huzni all added to our experience and ensured everything was seamless. Highly recommend them. Thanks guys! Rob, Oni, George & Peg

"We had a memorable trip to Sri Lanka. Thanks to Paba for all the arrangements done in a very professional manner. Every single detail was taken care of. I had my 81 years old mother with us and a wheel chair was at her disposal all the time that was arranged by Olanka travels...very impressive indeed. The home stays and hotels that Olanka arranged were all good. A very budgeted trip and I must thank Olanka for providing us with an excellent driver cum guide at our disposal. Jayampath knows his way in and around Sri Lanka, has rapport with some good restaurants that gave us a good discounts on the lunch buffet, speaks English and Hindi well and is very friendly. My kids and other members of the family got along very well with him. Very courteous and respectful. He went one step further by inviting us to his home for lunch when in Bentota. God bless Olanka Travels and may you achieve many more laurels your way.
Thanks once again to Paba and Jaya. Will not hesitate to recommending Olanka to our friends here in India. Jai Hind!"

Most Relaxing Holiday Ever.....
"Our trip to Phuket was amazing.Our Sri Lankan agent Olanka Travels they did a superb job by arranging everything to make us more comfortable. We enjoyed plenty of breathtaking views on phi phi island,James bond island,Kata beach and Pathong beach. Entire experience including snorkeling, canoe, long tail boat ride and travel on a sea angle cruise were so special. For me best part of my tour was Siam Niramit show where i experienced the real Thai culture, Thai music and dancing. Highly recommend for any body to watch this spectacular thai cultural show.there is no two words ,definitely Phuket should be on everyones list to visit.
Thanks Olanka Travels.You guys are truly professionals. Even I would like to plan my next year trip also with you."

We just returned from Sri Lanka after a holiday touring the country for three weeks.. Without Olanka Travels, our trip organiser Ishara & driver Eral. The tour would have been incomplete.. Intially I was not able to decide which travel agent to go with until I came across with Olanka Travels.. Our contact there was Ishara who was really patient & provided excellent services from the begining of the tour.. She never hesitated to design the itinerary as per our comfort & wishes.. Through out the planning process she paid attention to every detail, accomdations & the changes in the itinerary.. She was very responsive to any query via whatsapp, emails & the phone calls.. She ensured that the trip was as how we want it to be.. once in a lifetime experience.. In the end the itinerary turned out to be excellent & the hotels were amazing.. Ishara also make sure that we get the best driver & the vehicle for us to travel in.. We were picked up by our driver Eral from the airport.. As soon we met Eral He made us so comfortable with the smile & the way He handled our arrival.. We felt like we are in the safe hands & a very caring person.. Apart from all that major tourist attractions, He also took us to experience local scene such as culture, tradition & food.. Eral made sure we are accomdated very well at every hotel & provided with the best services.. He was in touch with Ishara & Olanka team all the time to make sure everything goes according to the planning.. Everything was perfect & perfectly arranged.. We would recommend Olanka Travels to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka..

I would definitely use them again when I returnWe booked a trip with Ms. Pavithra (Olanka Travels Sri Lanka) after finding them on the internet as I wanted a tailored trip around the Paradise with a friendly company. And that's just what We got. They helped us to plan the trip and then once we'd been picked up from the airport, We had a fantastic time spending time with Mr. Milan (Driver) who was more of a tour guide and really made it a memorable experience. He even made sure we got the local prices for the items We were buying in the shops rather than paying the 'tourist' price which was great! The van that they provided was a really high standard with comfy seats and seat belts and the Hotels that they recommended to our group across the Sri Lanka were also really lovely and clean. We felt very safe with Mr. Milan as he was very careful on the roads, with no speeding and much better than some of the other drivers that I had encountered!

We had dinner at camp fire, breakfast by the river and lunch in a restaurant that offers panoramic view of Colombo city.
