I have been meaning to write you for over a week. When we got back, it was quite hectic. Anyway, I just wanted to say our family really appreciated the service you provided for our wonderful trip to Sri Lanka. We really appreciated the way you handled the broken down van and we were so happy with our 2nd driver, Jagath. I wanted to tell you that he was very knowledgeable, polite, great with the kids, timely, organized, and all around great! He was top notch. If we are every in Sri Lanka again, we would hope to have him as a guide again.

Thank you for helping us plan our Sri Lanka vacation. We had a wonderful time and the itinerary was great for our families. While it was a difficult start, I really appreciate you finding us a driver for the day in Nuwara Eliya, and for sending a replacement all the way from Colombo. Jagath was an excellent driver and guide, and was a joy to spend our vacation with. He was very safe, courteous, happy, and always eager to help make our stay an even better one. We appreciated that he would point out the various sights along the way and was willing to ask anyone local for clarity if he was unsure of the correct answer (or sensed we wanted a more in depth one). He was patient with the children, and the adults took turns sitting in the front seat to speak with him along the way.
We have visited many countries in Asia, and the trip to Sri Lanka was perhaps my favorite. Nuwara Eliya was beautiful, Yala was exciting, and Weligama was relaxing. I hope to return again soon, perhaps next year, to see more of the country. We have already recommended your company to friends, and we would happily use you and Mango to plan, and Jagath to drive, for our next trip.

I highly recommend Mango Tours to anyone that is planning a trip to the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka. I was introduced to Ahintha through an Australian friend that had also travelled to Sri Lanka through Mango Tours. I was told that I would be treated as a special guest and that I certainly was. The arrangements could not be faulted as my friend and I had a wonderful time seeing and experiencing Sri Lankan life. Our driver Mr Weera took very good care of us and made sure we saw the best of Sri Lanka. He was an excellent driver making us feel safe on the very busy roads. He was also very knowledgeable and proud of his lovely country.

All of the hotels we stayed at were excellent, our favourites were Amaara Forest in Sigiriya and Amaara Sky in Kandy. At the Amaara Hotles we were treated extra special with the very best food, rooms and service one could imagine. For the beach I would recommend Canteloupe Hotels as we were also treated very well by all of the staff.

I am planning to return to Sri Lanka soon, as it left a very lasting impression with all of the interesting history and culture to explore and the very friendly people to get to know, makes for a wonderful place to be!! Thank-you Ahintha and Ashani.


Stella Conroy (October 2017)

Friends visiting Sri Lanka for the first time. We had an incredible holiday and wish to thank Ahintha and Ms Ashani, who are based in the head office in Colombo of Mango Holidays. Your arrangements were superb and no birthday celebration will ever rival Marilyn’s 2017 birthday. We both felt like princesses in Kandy. Thank you!
Mr Weera, our driver made sure that we saw all of the best features of this pearl of an island and arranged guides to help explain the historical sites. The safari in Minneriya Reserve was very good too.

Amaara Forest, Sigiriya and Amaara Sky, Kandy were wonderful havens. Thanks to all the staff at both Amaara resorts.

Neither of us have stopped talking about Sri Lanka and the wonderful people we met along the way.

Colombo is a busy city, but we should have allowed more time. One night was just not enough to get a feel for the place. I could easily spend half a day in the national museum in Colombo and would really enjoy having a curator/guide do a short tour within the museum. A historic walking tour of Colombo districts with guide would be good for getting an orientation to the city. I’m sure both of us will return to Sri Lanka and have already been recommending Mango Holidays to our friends. Stella


The Muir Family (October 2017)

We had the most amazing family holiday in Sri Lanka thanks to Mango Holidays. Everything about our two week stay was just so perfect. We stayed in some lovely hotels and were driven around by Weera who knew some wonderful places to take us for lunch on our travels, places where you would never just come across. He pointed things out to us and drove us around beautifully. We saw some wonderful sites during our first week and then we had a restful week in a villa on the beach where the staff were so lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was out of this world. Thank you Mango Holidays for arranging everything so brilliantly and giving us the best holiday ever.

My family of 6 adults,including myself just enjoyed a wonderful holiday touring Sri Lanka, arranged by this first rate travel company. Our driver Chandimal was superb-so professional, courteous, considerate and just lovely. We learnt much about the island from him as he wove his way around hazardous roads! Dilani de Silva, working in the Colombo office,arranged our hotels and travel arrangements,which was flawless and the proposed hotels were excellent too.i had a special birthday while here and Can truly say I was treated like a queen! We paid from the UK and would say do not hesitate to trust and book through this company. They are wonderful! Oh, and I do hope we may return one day. Thank you mango holidays!

Jordan Khoo (April 2016)

We traveled to sigiriya and kandy for a short trip. Dilani was most helpful via email correspondence and she assigned us Chandimal as our tour guide, driver and botanist all in one. We wouldn’t have got as much from the trip without him and thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
I would highly recommend mango holidays and request for Chandimal if available.


Gail Oglivie (July 2016)

I would like to write to you to express our thanks for organising such a wonderful trip to Sri Lanka.
My family and I had an amazing time and thought that Sri Lanka was a beautiful country with friendly and welcoming people.
The itinerary was fabulous and very well organised, thank you.
I would also like to say how pleased we were with Roshan our tour guide/driver for the week.
Roshan is such a lovely and kind man and we were very lucky lucky to have met him and grateful to share our trip with him.
Roshan made our holiday unforgettable and he was a pleasure to spend time with. He was very kind to my 2 children, who both loved Roshan and looked forward to seeing him everyday.
Roshan was always extremely helpful and accommodating for our needs. A very nice and caring man who made our trip really special.

Once again, thank you both for a wonderful trip to your beautiful country.

Best wishes
Gail, Martin, Ben and Holly

Now that the trip is almost finished I would like to thank you and Mango for making the arrangements. The places I visited were very interesting and gave me a good view of Sri Lanka which is an amazingly varied and lovely country. The hotels were all good in their category with some being very good and the others more than acceptable. I was particularly pleased with Ushan as driver-guide. He looked after me very well and was always helpful and good-humored. I want to thank you and your team in the Mango office for choosing the hotels and making the reservations even though I was a bit late. Especially I appreciate the arrsngement to keep my hotel room later on the final day due to my late departure.


Goh Poh Gek (March 2015)

Me and my friend travelled this March 2015 for 8 days with Mango. I love that I was able to tailor my holiday and Dilani of Mango had make it really easy and flexible. We had a good time and the hotels arranged for us were beyond our expectations.


Jane Jaffer (September 2014)

Visited Sri Lanka with my family, for 8 nights and had a great time exploring the wildlife and the serenity it has to offer. Thank you to Dilani and the Mango Holidays team for all the help setting it up.


Jonathan Key (October 2014)

Dear Mango Holidays, Thank you for a great holiday in Sri Lanka. We look forward to coming back and enjoying more of your countries warm hospitality. (hopefully with some dryer weather next time)


Danny Drinkwater (September 2014)

We had a great time exploring your beautiful Island. Thank you to everyone at Mango Holidays for the wonderful experience and for organizing everything from the hotels, transport and the safari in Sigiriya.


James Gordon (September 2014)

Thank you for the lovely holiday in Sri Lanka. Hotels were perfect and we really enjoyed ourselves. Only downer was the rain on one of the days we were in Colombo.
