    • Trip to Colombo

      We traveled to Srilanka in the first week of October 2019. The arrangements from Lanka Reisen were excellent and as per our discussions before the trip. The vehicle provided to us was very comfortable. And our friendly chauffer/guide, Mr.Saman, made the trip enjoyable. We had multiple hotel bookings, which were all quite nice (though we would have liked a bigger room in Colombo..). Couple of small issues: Getting the vouchers before the trip needed some follow-up. Everything was arranged for sure, just that there was delay in sending the vouchers causing unnecessary anxiety. And there was a hitch during checking out from one of the hotels, due to some issue with payment. It got sorted out soon, but could have been easily avoided. But all in all, I had a pleasant experience and would recommend Lanka Reisen to others.

      It was really pleasant & awesome stay in Sri Lanka. Many thanks to travel triangle, Nipuni from Overa Tours who suggested the best way & managed our requirement. Overa Tours is extremely professional and delivered to their commitment right from pick-up to the airport to all the bookings. What we required, the travel agent provided the best. Another part, Ganesh from Overa, who was as Guide with his Car, he is really a friendly nature person & take care of us. Initially I was thinking about safety in Sri Lanka, but Sri Lanka is really such a nice & Safe Place to visit. Vary Neat & Clean. I Visited Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya & at last but not least Colombo Tour. All was awesome. I appreciate Ganesh, he used to care our 3 years old Kid. My Kid also enjoyed his company with Ganesh. Thanks A lot Nipuni, Ganesh & Overa Tours Team Sri Lanka. I will recommend my friends for Sri Lanka Visit & Overa Tours. Thanks & Regards; Yogson Tembhre Chennai - India +91 8939306640 All historical places and service of Overa Tour agent, it was awesome and safe. Thanks

      We planned a 6 days trip to Sri Lanka covering the places Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Bentota, Galle and Colombo..The agent planned it really well to cover beautiful spots in and around these places..The cab and driver services were extra ordinary..Good hotels with fantastic view of beach/ocean/lake were provided..Special mention about driver - Hemantha Kumar Sir, he is so kind and humble, very joyful..it was lovely travelling with him.. Villa @69, Bentota The best place to holiday if you are a water lover...Cause it has beach right in front of the hotel, very good and spacious swimming pool and also various water sports near by..

    • Trip to Colombo

      The itinerary was good and it set quite some expectation for the trip. Vehicle was good and neat. But the driver was un cooperative and didn't have sufficient knowledge about the locations. Looked like he was exploring the places along with us. We were even charged for parking in Gregory Lake Park which was supposed to be part of the package. The hotel in Nuwara Eliya and in Colombo was sub par and not at all 3 star hotels (Lack of cleanliness, broken furniture, torn and dirty linen, pungent smelling rooms) making our stay unpleasant. The restaurants where we were taken for lunch/dinner by him were worst. We were charged exorbitant prices for all the food items. He didn't help us to negotiate the prices anywhere. The driver was not willing to pick up/ drop as per our timing requirements or convenience. It was as per his convenience. Thus we ended up paying for local conveyance for our usual sight seeing. The prices charged by travel agency for sight seeing activities were over the top high (e.g: Whale watching through agency was 9000/- LKR per head whereas we scouted and arranged a local agent for the same activity and paid 6500/- LKR which included free pick-up and drop and breakfast) Last but not the least, we almost missed our flight to Chennai because of the routes and driving style of the driver. Luckily we had Google Maps and came to know about the alternate highway route which had toll again paid by us. We will never recommend this agency or driver again for our family/friends visiting Sri Lanka. All the places which we added separately that were not part of the itinerary was the most enjoyable experience for us.

      I have already filled up the requisite testimony in the provided format and handed over to the chauffeur. Eliya Nuwara was the best destination but hotel should have been in the town itself. Similarly in Colombo. Enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for providing the services of Mr. Sujith, who was exceptionally co-operative and apt.

    • Trip to Colombo

      First of all let me start with the sales agent Mr.darshana, I just gave him the no. of days I would be visiting Sri Lanka and he was amazingly quick to put together a plan for us in a couple of minutes,his choices of hotels were amazing, especially the views from the rooms. Their prices are reasonable and services are excellent. We landed on 6th august,2019 in SL and the guide(Mr.Ramesh) was waiting for us patiently with the name board,he was not difficult to find. He was courteous and polite and helped us board the vehicle and start our trip to the different destination in sri lanka. We travelled from Colombo->Kandy->Nuweraellaya->ella->Beruwala(water sports and river safari). They even plan a day trip to visit the town of Galle from beruwala. I would definitely suggest Relax Lanka Tours to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka.
