My husband and I did a 14 day tour with Manju. Our itinerary included Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Yala, Tangalle, Mirissa, Bentota.
We started off the tour as clients and we ended the tour as great friends. Manju’s English Is good and we didn’t have any problems understanding him or making ourselves understood. Also, I booked this tour in the early spring, but we didn’t arrive in Sri Lanka until December. Communication with Manju through WhatsApp was easy and we were able to plan the itinerary via WhatsApp. Manju also recommended hotels and booked some of these hotels for us. Manju was also flexible with any changes we wanted to make to the itinerary. He also used his knowledge of the country to recommend a variety of activities for us to do such as boat rides, a cooking class and hikes.
Manju has many years of experience in the hospitality and tourism industry in Sri Lanka and outside of the country. His experience shows in the quality of the tour that he provided us.
Manju was very knowledgeable about his country and its history. We were able to gain lots of knowledge about Sri Lanka through Manju. Also, his car was clean, comfortable and reliable and we didn’t have any issues during the trip. He also was always on time each morning even though we sometimes weren’t.
I recommend that anyone considering Sri Lanka to put away your hesitations and come. The country was safe and we didn’t have problems with lack of fuel for the car, food quality or power outages. The people of Sri Lanka are so friendly and welcoming. The country is very beautiful with mountains, tea plantations, safaris, beaches and bird watching.
