"Exceeded our expectations, a wonderful island with so much to see. Will definitely return again."

"amazing country. We did a day tour to visit the elepahant orphanage and Kandy with the best driver ....Shamen made the trip with his knowledge and excellent driving skills. We will return to Sri Lanka some day to see more of this amamzing country."
"Very different to what we thought. Well worth looking into. Lots to see and do. "

"It was everything I was hoping for and more! The scenery was spectacular, the people warm and friendly and the food lovely."
"Still revovering from the war 4 years ago"
"heavy traffic ,intersting ,lovely people"
"Country was beautiful and hotels were for most part excellent. The main issue was in relation to driver. Who are insistent on bringing you to certain shops and places to eat where prices are ridiculously high (not just normal tourist mark up) but well in excess of prices at home. One example is being brought to lunch at a place that was extremely poor and then been charge in $35 for the privelege. It would appear that tour operator is to some extent complicit to this rip off as driver insisted on two particular stops where prices for tea was $24 for a small packet. This is experience would likely stop me recommending a holiday with Kuoni as operator."
"been before, love the people and culture. Food excellent, lots to see and beautiful beaches and not too touristy"
"really enjoyed our 1st 6 days doing our tour and having a driver/guide is a very good idea but sri lanka as a beach disappointed"
"Beautiful beaches very nice people"
"Beautiful, lovely people. "
"Interesting and beautiful. Would love to return here and the maldives"
"beautiful and vibrant"
"Quiet where we were staying, not much happening. Its advisable to do a train journey into Colombo and experience Sri lankan culture in the city. Any excusions you consider you must consider the time it takes to travel. We decided against any as it was far too long a journey."
"Devoping country. Friendly people."
"Still gorgeous, but very much changed since i saw it before the tsunami - safety zones around the beaches, no beach bars etc. It's a real shame."
"Loved the scnery , culture. Its a poor country but we felt safe and enjoyed meeting the locals. They do like tips so always take small change !"
"Sri Lanka was beautiful and interesting, the people friendly.It was much more expensive than we had anticipated and the sea not suitable to swim, snorkel or scuba (last two weeks of August)."
"It was beautiful in places, but as soon as we got there, it became apparent that we were limited with our movements. We were constantly hassled by locals trying to sell us things. Also, the food was disappointing - everything was a buffet, and this meant that service was impersonal and meals were instantly forgettable."
"Loved the Hotels I stye in - did Panorama Tour - The Beach at Negombo was fantastic as was lighthouse. Buit the tour was v earl starts and often very tiring. Got to see so much of the country. Very beautiful , still parts affected by Tsunami and a lot of poverty but overall a great trip"
"wounderful place, wounderful people"
"The country is beautiful and unspoilt but obviously in need of tourism as many of the people live in extreme poverty."
"Fabulous and untouched by commercialism as they have just emerged from the war. I think it will quickly change. Roads are awful and a fair but of poverty, but it is beautiful and unspoilt by industry and high rise hotels."
"Beautiful & lovely people"
"LOVED THE COUNTRY , PEOPLE AND WE DID LOTS OF EXCURSIONS USING LOCAL GUIDES"
"Both were beautiful very friendly people."
"Obviosuly very unaccustomed to western women, so got stared at alot!! Apart from that, very 'busy' country, worth a visit."
"the above relates to the forcast not the actual weather. Hopefully the weather will have picked up by the time i go."
"Sri Lanka - AMAZING and we would definitely recommend and consider re-visiting. Maldives - picture postcard scenary and amazing villas but expensive and less impressive food (buffet) than in Sri Lanka."
"All hotels wonderful esp - The Tea factory and The Beach"
"Sri Lanka is a busy place. Areas that you will want to visit are a good few hours drive away, it is highly recommended you stay overnight to break your excursions. Kuoni had an outstanding rep who provided some of the best customer service I have experienced. However we found the general Sri Lankan attitude / ability of customer srevice a little tiring at times. I feel this would be a better location for a travelling / backpacking holiday rather than Honeymoon."
"We didn't see much of it, but clearly the people are lovely, well mannered, polite and happy, beautiful scenery, clearly alot of poverty which I hope changes."
"Beautiful. Lots to see - wildlife and monuments. Would definitely recommend"
"Beautiful country - sunny smiles all round"
"Sri Lanka is very beautiful, cultural destination. The people are very friendly but there is a lot of begging and as tourism is one of the biggest industries it's worth checking what you're paying for the activities you do."
"Staff & Locals were all really friendly the only downside was the journey from Colombo as it is a long one but well worth having a private transfer."
"Disappointed that couldn't really explore beaches without constantly being pestered by 'beach boys' who were always waiting at hotel perimeter fence. Didn't like the way some staff/guides etc actually asked for large tips. Weather very hot & humid and wetter than I expected."
"begging and harrassment of tourists by locals for money, can be annoying!"
"could'nt ask for more from the Honeymoon, especially Saman villas"
"Muslim, Just show respect and you tend to get it back."
