Landed safely back in Sydney. I loved every minute of Sri Lanka, spending time with Jack and getting to know 'us' better while we saw beautiful sights and experienced new things together. ❤️(We made it out alive!) Thank you Deshan from Lankadvipa for organising absolutely everything and for Vipula for driving us around the craziest of roads! You're both amazing! Feeling so refreshed. Exactly what the doctor ordered. Bring on The Newsagency v2.0! 🇱🇰💛#aliandjackdoSL

My husban and I had the most amazing private tour of Sri Lanka in February 2018 which was organised by Deshan of Lanka dvipa travels. We travel frequently at least 3 times a year and this tour would have to be one of the best we have experienced. Sri Lanka is an incredible country to visit and so diverse. I urge people to visit this beautiful country with its friendly people, delicious food, unbelievable scenery and wildlife that is as good as countries such as Africa. We were so glad that we booked with Deshan for so many reasons. Our communication from the initial booking right through to our arrival back home was excellent. Through many meetings and lots of questions, Deshan knew exactly what we wanted from our Sri Lankan tour. Whilst on tour, Deshan always rang us to make sure his " kids" were safe and all was going well with the tour. On arrival we were met on time at the airport by our wonderful guide Vipula and driven to our first hotel safely by our polite and delightful driver Kushan. The hotel was simply divine after a long flight from Australia and we soon found out that this was the standard for the rest of our journey. The accommodation was of such a high standard and the variety of properties helped make every stay so different. A majority of the meals are included in the tour and all were delicious. Our tour guide Vipula was an absolute gem and we miss his company. He was always on time to meet us each morning for our daily activities and organised tours/events outside of our Itinerary. My husband loves cricket so Vipula organised special seats for us at the T20 match Sri Lanka V India. It was such an exciting event and even better Sri Lanka won on the night. We continued to experience VIP treatment throughout the tour such as front seats at the Kandy Cultural Evening Performance, special stretch Golf Buggy tour through the magnificent Kandy Botanic Gardens, private boat to the Hindu Temple Island in Jaffna, just to name a few. The highlight was the safari through Yala National Park with Deshan's close friend Darryl.Our only regret was that we didn't stay at his wonderful camp site right inside the park. We saw leopard,elephants and every animal except the sloth. He took us to the section of the park that most tourists do not see. His knowledge of flora and fauna was outstanding and it was fun travelling in the open air jeep. We enjoyed a magnificent buffet lunch of seafood and Sri Lankan curry, salad and vegetables set in a lush jungle by the river bed. My husband and I thoroughly recommend visiting Sri Lanka and Lankadviptravels is the obvious choice for your tour. For us they delivered reliability, excellent service, amazing value, luxury accommodation, delicious food and a fantastic itinerary. We wish to thank you so much Deshan for organising our amazing tour of Sri Lanka. Our wonderful memories of your beautiful country will remain with us forever. Andrea and Tim Jennison.

A neck and shoulder massage in an atmosphere heavy with the aroma of spices. - mingling with a happy crowd in the ascent of the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya. - immersion in our own private plunge pool in our own private courtyard. - lying safely in a comfortable bed under canvas with the sounds of the jungle all around.- taking our imaginations to the Travellers' Bar at the Galle Face and sharing a drink with the ghosts of the rich and famous.So many memories in a tour which engaged all of the senses. Thank you, Deshan.

Beginning in the fishing town of Negombo, to the heights of Sigiriya and the cool of the tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka was magnificent. However the comfort camping in Yala National Park was the outstanding memory, as we went on guided safaris of this naturally beautiful park, full of wildlife including elephants, leopards, buffaloes, deer, and numerous other animals and birds. Then onto the old Dutch seaside colony of Galle where it was a step back to yesteryear....finally travelling to Colombo for shopping, sight-seeing whilst staying in the old iconic seaside hotel where the rich and famous mingled. Thanks to Deshan who organised every detail making our visit to the “Pearl of Asia” one we’ll never forget.
