Super safe driver and nothing too much trouble! A real adventure Helanka of Helanka Tours was my driver/guide for 13 days airport to airport in Sri Lanka. I can thoroughly recommend him! Helanka is a very safe driver and a courteous and respectful person. His English is very good, and constantly improving. As well as having a good understanding of the places we visited, he carries a small library with him covering cultural sites, flora and fauna so that I was able to have an understanding of the places we visited as well as animals and plants. I sent Helanka an itinerary of the places I wanted to visit, but was happy for him to make adjustments which made sense in terms of time and location. I saw so much every day, and had many special experiences. When we reached Galle, Helanka invited me to his home where his beautiful wife prepared a delicious lunch – it was lovely to meet his family! We visited many places, including some which were out of the way, and an adventure for us both! There were so many highlights – all my questions could be answered, as Helanka was able to ask on my behalf and translate the answer for me if he didn’t already know. The whole experience was wonderful, (in spite of the oppressive heat – it was my choice to go out of season). A few absolute stand out experiences…. Minneriya elephant safari; Sigiyira village tour and lunch; International Buddhist Library and Museum, Sri Buddgaghosa; Demodara Viewpoint (very steep road accessible only by tuktuk but amazing view); Rakkiththakanda Rajamaha Viharaya (rock temple and meditation monastery – incredibly peaceful); Community Tsunami Education Centre & Museum at Hikkaduwa; jeep up to Martin’s Lodge, (4.5km, took about 40 minutes to lift about 100m to 450m elevation!) the lodge itself, and the guided walk through Sinharaja Forest Reserve; Fa Hien Cave, also Pahiyangala Cave. You won’t do better than to have Helanka as your driver, to help you plan and execute a memorable holiday to Sri Lanka!

Driver recommendation in Sri Lanka We traveled 15 days with Helanka. More than a driver, he provided great advice, offering us activities, hotels, restaurants (without any obligations). Always in a good mood with very good English (unlike ours!!). We recommend it for your future trip.

Thank you for your great support i We highly recommend discovering Sri Lanka with Helanka! He is a quiet and endearing personality, who is keen to make his country, its culture and its cuisine known. He is passionate about nature and birds... Helanka organized part of the trip north with Nishantha who was flexible and very helpful (thanks Nishantha for the clothing sent!) and after a rest near Kandy we met up with Helanka for a second part of our trip. Thank you again and see you next time with the whole family! L+S

10 day trip in February Helanka chose accommodation suited to our desires (superb views, very natural). Always punctual and attentive to our needs. We have completed all the planned steps. You have to speak a minimum of English to communicate because he doesn't (yet) speak French.

Amazing experience We are a family from France with two daughters of 13 and 16 years old. We had an amazing and safe trip of 2 weeks through Sri Lanka with Helanka Tours. Helanka was busy so he recommended us Amith. Amith was a fantastic guide and a wonderful travel companion, helpful, reliable, punctual and safe. He knows the country very well and arranged all activities we wanted to do allowing us to have a memorable experience in Sri Lanka. Thank you again for everything!
