Sarah from Sri Lankan Dreams put together a 26 night tour package including top Option Accommodation and half board which includes Breakfast and a Dinner. As some of the Accommodation is isolated this saves having to look for food in the evening.
The tour was great with highlights of Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage with 40 mid to small Elephants frolleking in the river and all the antics they get up to. Then there was two Safaris which were amazing. We had a close encounter with a herd of Elephants who were protecting a baby. I got amazing footage on video. Botanical Gardens in Kandy were also great. Sigiriya and Anuradhapura were cultural experiences not to be missed. Climbing Little Adams Peak and Cave Rock Temple were also a must.
Accommodation generally was great. We had two bad experiences that Farzaan the Manager was able to fix. We would recommend not going to Sinharaja Rain Forest as the walk is leech infested and very dangerous under foot. Stay away from Boulder Gardens Accommodation.
The motive for the holiday was a relaxing Beach stay. We made the mistake of splitting it four days Trincomalee and four days Passikudah. Give Trinco a miss as it is too isolated with nothing to do. Anantaya
Resort Passikudah was amazing. We were upgraded to third walk up beach view and I would highly recommend to pay the difference and do that. The facilities are great and there is Swimming, yoga, Jet Skiing, Snorkling and Sailing. All of the extras are paid for by us and we could decide to do them or not.
The other accommodation was great to fantastic with our final stay in Negombo at the amazing Heritance. It is so much nicer than the first Negombo Resort and we wish we’d stayed two nights here at both ends of our amazing holiday.
We had Private Vehicles and Driver Guides Shiral who was great, until he got sick and management decided to replace him so that we wouldn’t catch whatever it was he had. That was considerate of them. Sam was our replacement knowledgeable driver and Sherman drove us the six hours from Passikudah to Negombo.
All in all it was a action filled adventure followed by a relaxing beach stay. I would highly recommend Srilankan Dreams to anyone looking for a well organised trip at a reasonable price.George Till, Australia (June 2018)

With Ranjith we think improvement would be difficult because he is so professional, punctual, knowledgeable, amazing!Kamil Kosc, UK (June 2018)
We had a fantastic honeymoon and Vipula was the reason why. He treated us like he had known us forever and shared us Sri Lanka the way he wanted to see it through the eyes and heart of a proud and kind hearted Sri Lankan.
We couldn`t have asked for more the only suggestion we could possibly give is to give him a raise!
As long as Vipula works for you we will always recommend Sri Lankan Dreams.We can honestly say that our honeymoon has felt like a dream. So thank you for everything and we hope your business thrives and people get to see Sri Lanka like we did until the end of time. It is a beautiful country with beautiful people. Thank you.Pavinder Singh, UK (May 2018)
