We just want to thank you again for a great holiday. We had a great time. Everything was perfect. The hotels were all very nice and we loved doing all the tours and experiencing the culture and history that Sri Lanka has to offer. I am glad to have experienced it first hand and it will make it a lot easier to sell tours now.

Hallo Herr Farook, ich moechte Ihnen versichern, dass alle Reiseteilnehmer von der Vielfaeltigkeit, der reichen Kultur und Vegetation und der Freundlichkeit der Menschen tief beeindruckt und begeistert waren. Fuer die Einladung und gastfreundliche Bewirtung in Ihrem Hause darf ich mich im Namen aller Reiseteilnehmer nochmals herzlich bedanken. Alles Liebe & Gute fuer die Zukunft.

We will treasure memories of the countryside around Sigiriya and Dambulla , leading down to the hill capital of Kandy where we stayed overnight. The hotels you recommended far exceeded our expectations, and the food was superb, indeed. Unfortunately we have gained a few pounds each. The final days were particularly relaxing in Bentota Beach Hotel. We just wished we could have stayed a little longer. A special mention for our driver guide, how he managed to get us to each location without an incident we’ll never know! To say that he is safe and experienced would be an understatement, and his knowledge of the country is second to none. We enjoyed his commentary and stories of the ancient kings a lot. We wish Lanka Vacations a prosperous future.

My wife and I wish to thank you for the travel arrangements by you for our trip to Maldives and Sri Lanka. Where ever we went in both countries, we were well received by your representatives at the various destinations. You were responsible for the well planned itinerary. We like to thank you once again for making our dream come true.

Die Reise hat uns sehr gut gefallen, besondere Wuensche wurden auch erfuellt.
Familie Kuhn, Cologne, Germany
Our driver was an excellent tour guide. Every time there was something to see, he stopped immediately and explained about it thoroughly. He always kept an eye on us and we never had to worry about anything. We think, we have seen Sri Lanka at its best, thanks to our driver and Lanka Vacations.

Dear Bandu, many thanks for all your help and great driving. The buffalo curd was delicious! One problem – I feel I did not express my appreciation adequately , because of being distracted at that time. Please accept this token of appreciation , our thanks and very best wishes for the future.

Sehr geehrter Herr Farook, der Studien-und Urlaubsaufenthalt meiner Gattin und mir auf Sri Lanka wurde durch Ihre Mitwirkung und das kluge Handeln Ihrer Mitarbeiter fuer uns zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis. Durch die individuelle und einfuehlsame Betreuung durch den Reiseleiter erfuhren wir viel ueber die Geschichte Ihres Landes and weitaus mehr als es durchschnittlich ueblich ist. Die Belastung durch das Klima and andere Umstaende haben wir geduldig und relativ gut ueberstanden und wir vertrauen Ihnen unsere Enkelin an, die mit Ihrem Partner in Urlaub kommen wird.
