I was flying through Colombo for just a brief 17-hour period on a long layover from Beijing to Mumbai. I didn't want to sit in the airport all-day and was hoping to get out and get a taste of Sri Lanka. I tried booking with several other tour operators but had a number of issues. Once I booked Trips Lanka tour, he was quick to reply and helped me customize my day. I couldn't have found a better guide for exactly what I was looking for. He gave tons of information and different options to ensure that I was happy. I have had several local guides in various countries (+40) that I have visited and this tour is easily top 5! The guide’s English is great and he's easy to talk to. I also loved that he always had his camera out and was snapping pictures. Can't recommend their tours enough - I will definitely be back for longer than 17 hours next time.!
