The best way to discover Sri Lanka

  • We, a group 6 people incl. 3 teenage girls (15-64), spent altogether 2 weeks (July 20 – August 2, 2015) in Sri Lanka. I contacted Genuine Sri Lankans based on the ratings/comments on TripAdvisor. Sharon immediately responded to my e-mail request and came up with a program (incl. entrance fees & activity cost) for 10 days plus with a good choice of hotels in different price ranges for each location. Sharon provided us all info and related cost in a very transparent way. We slightly changed the program and finally agreed on a 9-days-tour, starting off on July 22 from a hotel in Negombo, where we first stayed for two nights to get some rest. We booked the hotels ourselves, as I wanted to choose the rooms myself. It was also agreed that we would pay the entrance fees ourselves, which gave us full flexibility to change the program on short notice while we were on the road. With Koshala we had the best tour guide and driver in one person. He is extremely knowledgeable and he really seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge with us. This was one of our best round trips ever. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with beautiful people and to fully benefit from the rich culture and history of Sri Lanka, we recommend Genuine Sri Lankans. THANK YOU – Koshala & Sharon!

  • “It was a very good experience starting from the very beginning. I booked this trip almost a year ago and Sharon has been very patient with me, and she answered all my queries almost within the same day, giving very useful and very candid comments on where would be the best place to go or where is not too worth to go. Turn out all these are very true and helpful comments that had made my trip perfect. I travelled in Sri Lanka for a week, and Koshala was my driver guide who escorted the two of us to all places that we wanted to see. He speak excellent English and drive very diligentently giving us extreme comfort and the feeling of safety (as driving in Sri Lanka is not an easy task, not too much about the road itself, indeed all road condition are very good, just that the other drivers on the road were usually not as prudent as you want them to be). You can pick and book your own desired hotels on your own making you 100% free to pick whatever accommodation you wanted (as you know some other operator mandated you to book via them, or try to pesuade you to book to some of their contracted hotel to get some commission back). There is no hidden charges or any optional charges here as you paid your own entrace tickets and your meal as well, so is really a free choice, not to be bounded by the tour price itself. The only price that I paid to Genuine Srilankans was the car and the driver guide. Overall a very high rating for this company and I would strongly recommend you to consider using this company if you are planning for a trip to this wonderful country .”
