    Nagrajan's 5 days trip to Kandy

    Hi First of Thanks to Travel Triangle - Relax Lanka for this Srilanka Trip - their are some CONS AND PROS- First of all thanks to Driver /Guide Mr. Sanjay he was amazing person - and was very help full throughout the Tour pros :- All the hotels was very Good and luxurious - and in all the hotels dinner was their so didn't faced any problem of food Cons : we have paid 35K for two person thats ok - but for the all the activities we had to pay the Extra charges - 1. like elephant safari - we paid : 3KINR which was not at all worth you can just see some 4 elephants 2.. Madhu River we have paid 60$ for two person for just a ride of 1hours - Again it was not worth - when we checked in the NET it was just 400RS person - We feel like we have been cheated 3. tortoise watching _ we paid 2K INR - again its just a small house hold person running the tortoise park -- not worth One more suggestion they ask for charges for everything- even before travelling we asked them about Corona Crisis they said its nothing over here we reached on 11th March and from 12th March Srilanka has started their to close many things - if they have informed about this we would postphoned our Trip - Even we have enquired about VISA - they have informed us that for indian citizen it is on Arrival - its was not at all True - before travelling we need to take online visa which compulsory and it is free for indian Citizen - But Relax lanka was asking for 20$ fee for visa if i want to take it from them -- it was good i done it from my side Would suggest instead of going to Srilanka - i would suggest plan for NORTH EAST - which is worth value for money

    Sri Lanka Trip- Great service by Pearly Gates- Highly recommended- The Company's representative, Nimni, was in constant touch throughout the trip- Customised the trip based on our requirements- Timely responses and excellent private car, Al thought, Driver(Roshan) was was polite and humble but not very informed about places. Balanced Hotel selection , overall a great stay and experience.

    Deepak's 7 days trip to Kandy

    Good hotels! Resourceful driver cum guide! My only issue is with the booking process. Travel triangle took 25 days to finalise my booking even though i was instantly getting back to them with updates/changes to my tour itinerary. I am otherwise completely satisfied with the trip.

    Abhishek Blade

    Abhishek's 6 days trip to Kandy

    I missed my flight from chennai to colombo due to, your improper connecting flight scheduling, Indigo flight from Delhi to Chennai being delayed and due to reschedule of Indigo flight from 5:55am to 5:40am and by the time I reached the checkin gates were already closed.Due to which I have to book another flight from Chennai to Colombo on Sri lankan Airlines that costed me around Rs. 13794.There is no update from your side that what all are you doing to get my money reimbursed from Indigo because of missed flights as there was no fault of mine for the same and your travel agent told me that they are helpless and you your self need to talk to the Indigo Airlines. Secondly I need a complete distribution of my bills explaining me clearly my flights cost, travel cost, hotels and others which ideally should be done before payment even but I have not received it even after payments and even after my trip

    Anil's 11 days trip to Kandy

    We undertook 11 days tour of Sri Lanka from 29th Feb to 10th March 2020 and visited Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara-Eliya, Mirissa, Bentota and Colombo. The entire tour was well planned by the travel agency and it was quite comfortable tour. Taxi driver with luxurious sedan was with us for the entire tour from day one and provided Sim card for connectivity and also worked as guide. We stayed for 2 days at certain places but no local sightseeing on the first day was arranged by the Agency. At some places food was not to our taste. In all tour was very satisfying and comfortable.

    Sree's 6 days trip to Kandy

    I had one of the best experience with SEEMAX Travels. I was on a vacation to Srilanka for 6 days with family and my friends family. Seemax travel arranged each and everything in an organized manner and every thing was up to the mark.Driver Rajakaruna was a very professional and amazing person. He picked up on time from the Airport and also helped us in exploring places in Srilanka. All the Hotels were awesome with all amenities, Food was really great and more than our expectation. They were able to cover all the places as per the itinerary which was requested by us. I would like to thank Dilshan and team for making this holiday an amazing experience. I would also want to recommend SEEMAX TRAVEL FOR YOUR TRAVEL EXPERIENCE. It is one-stop for all your travel info at affordable prices. Seemax Travel is trustworthy.

    Ieavinash's 6 days trip to Kandy

    Ceyathra Destination had quoted the highest price (about 50-60 USD more) than its counterparts for a 6 day 7 night trip in March 2020. However, we stuck to Ceyathra because Gishan interacted personally and solved each and every query that we had before the trip. He was available 24*7 and was quick with responses and feedback. He showed amazing flexibility in making changes to the tour schedule and made sure we had a comfortable and fun filled experience. He and his driver Chitra had made sure that our 88 year old father who was travelling with us was comfortable too. Right from picking up at the Colombo airport, to dropping us back Ceyathra Destination offered immaculate service which came in form of Chatura the driver. Not only did he took personal care of all of us but also made sure we got the best Forex rates while buying the local currency. He not only drove us safely and showed us a number of places, but also went out of the way to get us good discounts. His wit came as a bonus for all of us. I recommend Ceyathra Destination to all those planning to travel to Sri Lanka ... Please be assured of personal care and promises will be kept. Thank you for reading ... Gishan can also be contacted on +94 76 804 8729 Climbing Sigriya rock, Dambulla caves, elephant safari, rafting, boat ride on bentota river and a swim on the beaches are not to be missed
