    Rekha Khandelwal

    Chennai

    Rekha's 6 days trip to Colombo

    Although the itinerary was well planned, our guide and driver was ignorant and not aware about the area and locality. He was unable to guide us throughout the trip. Most of the times, he would ask other locals for information about places and things. We were told that he would help us exchange currency. Even after informing him 2-3 hours prior that we need to exchange currency, he failed to find out where we could get it done and wasted 1-2 hours looking for the right place. In Bentota, he wasted another hour taking us to a water sports complex that was charging us almost 6X(25,000 LKR) the fee for snorkeling. After much persistence, he took us to the beach where we, on our own, managed to crack a deal for 4000 LKR. In Colombo, we were supposed to go to the National Museum. Despite checking with him multiple times, he dropped us at the museum only at 4:25 PM. The last booking is at 4:30 PM and one section is closed after 2 PM, while another is closed after 4 PM. When asked what the entre fee was, he said 2-3$, whereas on getting there we got to know that the fee was 1000 LKR. We wanted to buy spices and some souvenirs, but again, he was unable to take us to the right place to make the purchases Communicating with him was also a problem. In Colombo, even after telling that we want to go to a certain places, he conveniently ignored us. Our day in Colombo was an utter waste owing to his incompetence as a guide. He was just a driver and had hardly any inputs to share about various places and things. Our feedback to you regarding this would be to employ drivers who are well versed with the locality. The driver needs to be trained to serve as a guide; he should be someone who can help tourists navigate through the country, take them to the best local spots, and get the best deals.

    Harikumarpnv's 4 days trip to Colombo

    We would like to submit to you that please reserve the rooms as per their minimum local food of the tourist is available. ( suppose in my case, I am a south Indian, so reserve the accommodation where the south Indian food is available ). Reserve the rooms with in the city, so that if we want to go out after driver dropped at hotel, it is easy to us. At Hotel Sapphire in Colombo , we had a bad experience i.e in our room the wash room size is 4x4. I took photographs of the bath room also, but there is no provision to upload the pics from this site.
