“What an incredible adventure from start to finish. Our driver and guide Abey Waradhana went ‘above and beyond’ making our trip both interesting (with his excellent knowledge) and enjoyable. He looked after us, never hurried us and escorted us everywhere, he even checked up on us after his part of the tour was over. We feel like we were there for months we packed so much in. The itinerary was intense but so worth it from the walks, the temples and the additional trips to Sigriya, the Temple of the tooth (highly recommend a night visit) and the safari. We have seen so many elephants, beautiful birds and other wildlife we couldn’t have asked for more. The hotels have been of top quality and the food and staff incredible. We cannot recommend this trip more highly, great value for money and an experience to remember forever. Make sure you bring comfortable footwear and a brolley. Thanks once again Abey, you’re a star.”

“Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit, Sri Lanka ist ein spannendes, vielfältiges Land mit viel Natur und Kultur. Es ist für jeden etwas dabei. Tempel, Regenwald, Safari, Hiking, Übernachtung im Dschungel, Meditation bei einem Mönch (persönliches Highlight), Kandy und Ella, Strand, Ayurveda Treatment u.v.m....

Wir haben viel gesehen und unser Fahrer/ unsere Agentur ist auf alle Wünsche eingegangen und hat versucht uns alles zu ermöglichen um uns eine unvergessliche Reise zu bescheren. Es war wirklich toll mit einem privaten Fahrer unterwegs zu sein und nicht in einer Gruppe. Die Unterkünfte, besonders das Oak Ray Regency in Kandy und das Athgira River Camp in Udawalawe haben uns gut gefallen. Der letzte Aufenthalt im Tangerine Beach Hotel hat ins persönlich nicht so zugesagt und wir haben auf 4 Tage verkürzt und stattdessen eine Nacht in Colombo gebucht. Alles in allem können wir die Reise und die Reiseagentur Hot Tourism sehr empfehlen!”
A very pleasant tour of Sri Lanka

“We did a 14 day tour starting in Colombo where we toured the Colombo Museum, Gangaramaya Temple, Galle face green, and the Red Mosque The second stop was Bentota where we were able to swim at the beach, take the Madhu River boat ride, then visit a Turtle Hatchery. The third stop was a drive to Nuwara Eliya where we stopped at Devan and St. Clair falls. The next morning we took the train to Kandy where were saw Adam's Peak and Mt. Pedro. While in Kandy we visited the Peradeniya Royal Botanical garden and the Temple of the Tooth. From Kandy we drove to Dambulla to visit Dambulla cave temple and enjoyed taking in lunch at Hiriwaduna Village where a local member demonstrated village cooking. I opted to climb Sigiriya in the morning then return back to the hotel to pick up my travel partner to tour the historic site Polonnaruwa. The next day we drove to Trincomalee and spent 3 days enjoying the beach at Nilaveli Beach. The next stop was Anuradhapura to visit Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya. Drove to Alakamandawa and spent one night before departing for Negombo to spend our final day at the beach.

Our private driver was an excellent driver, very helpful and knowledgeable. We would certainly recommend this company for a tour of Sri Lanka.”
Enjoyable trip with H.O.T
