Customer Testimonials

Good morning,

We want to thank The Explore Vacations for the excellent organization of the trip and in particular manner Mr Shaluka who has always accompanied us on our 18-day trip to Sri Lanka. His behaviour has always been perfect since arrival at the airport, professional and nice was an excellent guide who made us know not only the most known places but also magnificent places outside the common routes, so to make us fully appreciate the country, Shalika’s manner of driving has always been quiet and enjoyable. Thanks again.

Best Regards

Federico Pasetto

Fantastic company. Very helpful and friendly staff who personalised a day trip for us. Our driver Mr Herath was not only a great and very safe driver but he was a great host and made our day even more enjoyable. Thank you.

Took a road trip tour with them recently. Our driver cum guide Mr Mangala Herath was very friendly and courteous and made the tour memorable for us. Strongly recommend Explore Vacations

Shankar Ramachandran

We had a very nice trip around Sri Lanka with this travel agency.

Everything was fine: very good contact before the trip and during the trip when needed; very good selection of hotels, tailormade (we wanted only design hotels), very good van and driver, – Mr Herath – who was always perfectly on time, very kind, ready to respond to our programme changes and knew the territory very well and was more of a guide rather than just a driver.

I would recommend the agent to everybody who wants to visit Sri Lanka. Hope to be back sometimes.

Lore Welcome

I traveled around Sri Lanka with My boy-friend and Explore Vacations has been so available for every our requests. Professional and caring. A good way to visit a fantastic country. I suggest you call them if you need to move fast and don’t lose time with public transports. They can help you with accommodation too if you like adventure and don’t want to book hotels. Enjoy

From airport pick up to final drop off, I have been looked after really well. Thanks to the kindness and professionalism of my driver Shaluka, my first big solo holiday was a great success. He looked after me and was able to show me all the ‘must-see’ sights as well as some places not normally on the itinerary. I will look forward to a return trip.

Great times, great memories.
