What our customers say about us
In December 2017 my family came to Sri Lanka for a special purpose of performing my daughter’s Indian Dancing Graduation “Arangetram”. For this event, a group of our friends living in Botswana too came to Sri Lanka including her teacher & family, a few classmates and their parents. Due to family function related commitments, I had time constraints to plan site seeing for the visitors. Therefore one of my cousins introduced me to a lady by the name Dinali to assist our visiting friends to experience Sri Lanka. During the planning session I realized that Dinali possessed a passion that need to be a comprehensive travel agent who can cater any need. Let it be luxury, authentic food, experience, adventure, relaxation etc. For this particular tour, Dinali was given a time, financial, guests and location budgets by the group who got multiple interests. My group was changing their wish list until the last minute as well. However, Dinali managed to accommodate all requirements and deliver with a much appreciated personal touch. Dinali’s all country travel guide Mohan was amazing. He knew many details of all the sites they visited, covering almost half of the country within 10 days. Dinali’s capability to meet with changing needs was well displayed by arranging a train trip from Nanu Oya to Elle to give my group a taste/glimpse of up-country beauty. And her caring hospitality was displayed when one of the hotels in Weligama mistreated some of my group, she immediately attended to the matter and met all of them at their next destination, Bentota Beach hotel to apologies for the bad experience. However, my group was very happy the way they were handled by Dinali and supported by the guide, driver and his assistant, all of them were organized by Dinali. And it is noteworthy to mention that when planning a trip with Dinali, she created an impression that she got only me in her clientele. She got all the time and information for me to make an informed decision.
Now I am aware that I am not an expert in this respect as long as likes of Dinali’s are in the profession. Therefore, I engaged Dinali to assist me for December 2018 as well. I am sure she will live up to the high standards that she has already set.
I got no hesitation to recommend Dinali for anyone who wants to visit Sri Lanka to plan and organize their tours.
I also felt really safe in the accommodation that Dinali booked for me. She was constantly getting updates from Namal to ensure that everything was going smoothly and that I was safe. Her job/duty as a travel agent does not end with a sale of a tour ..... with Dinali it ends when I was safe back home. She even went to the airport early in the morning with Namal to meet me and took me to my hotel.
Everything was all organised from the moment I set foot in Sri Lanka....from the pickup to the accommodations, tours and tickets. Hassle free!
Words and recommendation is not enough .....one will have to experience first hand what Sri Lanka Travel Secret provides to understand all the good reviews here. Behind a good team is a great leader. Would love to have her organise my itinerary and trip anytime!
I just had speak out my mind about the kind of experience i'm looking for and they were savvy enough to suggest a great recommendation!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for assisting us with a truly memorable experience that was well organised and thought through. Our time-line was really tight and it was unfortunate that we couldn’t spend longer in Sri Lanka. We were overwhelmed with this beautiful country and such hospitable people. For sure we will look to try and come back and spend a bit longer in Sri Lanka.
We will always look back on this fantastic trip and remember the lovely boutique hotels we stayed at and our very nice driver Jayath who was so friendly and courteous and his knowledge on some of the heritage sites was fantastic… it is not normally common to find a driver with so much knowledge! We learnt so much from him!
Thanks again for assisting us with all these recommendations! For sure we will highly recommend yourself and Sri Lanka travel secrets to all our friends and family who maybe visiting Sri Lanka in the near future.
Thanks for being a wonderful host Dinali and team. Look forward to visiting Sri Lanka again 🙂
