    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      My experience with travel triangle was mixed. The website and the link to agents is fantastic so I am likely to use it again. However, the trip missed the idea of what my girlfriend and I wanted from the trip. We are both outdoor enthusiasts, travel for work and had a short period of time in Sri Lanka. We wanted a very outdoor themed tour; treks, nature and waterfalls. The guide pushed city tours, tourist traps (gem factories, spice gardens ... worst part of the trip) and although he eventually removed them from the itinerary, the driver was still expecting to bring us there as the tours are quite set. We explained to our driver and he did his best to alter the plans and find good tours but the original plan restricted him due to hotels and travel times. Our original request was missed entirely by the booking agents. For those booking (myself included) in the future, the request needs to be very specific and do not allow a vague itinerary as I had. The hotels were excellent but served ‘tourist food’ whilst we wanted the local experience. I do suggest you check online reviews of hotels before accepting as we had to change twice from suggested hotels that had extremely bad online reviews. Overall, we had a good trip but thanks to our driver rather than the original booking agent. I would find it difficult to recommend Ntours again but the idea of travel triangle is excellent and will be used again.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      In general, the trip was very good with the exception of the last 2 stops. In Bentota, the weather was not good to do sea sports and the sea was not swimmable, which led us to do other unplanned activities. I know that the weather factor is not within your capacity to control; however, I remember that I made my concern very clear to the travel agent through our whatsApp chats that the weather might not be good and if it would be better to reroute. It is worth noting that the whole area did not have much tourists and the hotels were almost deserted, which is an indicator that it was not the proper season to visit the Sri Lankan western coast. In the last stop, although the plan was to visit Negombo, we were accommodated in a village that is 30-min away from the city center, which was not convenient to visit the city properly.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      It was as very good trip. Services of Tropical ceylon were very good. All services provided as per promise. Only problem was the communication with driver. The driver didn't know the english very well so it became very difficult to converse with him. Please make sure when you travel confirm the availability good english speaking driver.

      Our recent family trip to Sri Lanka was very well-organized and efficiently executed. The locations of hotels was great and the service was good too. Our tour guide, Rilwan, was very friendly and knowledgeable. His patience and efficiency made the entire experience even better. It's a beautiful country with many scenic spots and lovely people. It was a memorable trip! Thank you to leisure tours and travel triangle! There were many beautiful memories but one of the best was the hike to Little Adam's Peak and the view from there was just mesmerizing.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Overall Trip was great. But then the Itinerary given and actual were way different. Missed on few prime locations as the the place were way too far and not on the way. One of the hotel was extremely bad. Hotel Mount Heaven. The Hotel locations were also not in prime location.The agent was not at all helpful during the trip. I had done a trip earlier with Travel Triangle which was way better. I am disappointed this time!

      I loved the whole service specially the support offered kemila ( the agent of tropical Ceylon). I was very worried about the accommodation but he assured and delivered as promised. I thank him to make this trip unforgettable and memorable. Although the driver was not good guide he was ok ok but still I loved the overall journey. Kemila you will be my all time favorite. Thanks to TT for giving a good platform where we could better understand the country we are visiting. Hotel was good, Cab was clean and Good, places we visited awesome, local hotel staffs and peoples were good. Everything was good. Driver as a guide was not good he was not that much interested in guiding and telling about the places , he was unaware about many things. But overall things were great.
