Dario, Laura y Ferran

Thanks for showing us your beautiful country. Thanks to you we could enjoy a flawless organization and dedicate ourselves to 12 days of family quality time. The best part has been by far your accomodating way of adapting the activities depending on our on-spot mood. We still remember how you would stop the car on our every demand to see somenthing or take a picture. Or how you proposed us a stop for a coconut or a nice cup of tea now and then. The choice of hotels that we entrusted to you was clearly based on quality service regardless of the stars, and this was key for an great overall experience. We hope to enjoy again of your company soon back in Srilanka.

Gracias por enseñarnos tu país tan bonito. Gracias a ti pudimos disfrutar de una organizacion infalible y dedicarnos a disfrutar de 12 dias maravillosos compartidos en familia. La mejor parte ha sido con diferencia la manera tan complaciente en que has adaptado la agenda de actividades dependiendo de nuestras ganas del momento. Aún recordamos como parabas al borde de la carretera cada vez que te pediamos ver algo o tomar una foto. O como nos proponias un alto para tomar un coco o una taza de te cada tanto. Se nota que la selección de hoteles que te confiamos la hiciste basándote en la calidad del servicio independientemente del número de estrellas, y eso ha sido la clave para tener una sensacion global muy positiva. Esperamos poder disfrutar otra vez de tu compañia en Sri Lanka.

Die achttägige Rundreise mit Samantha und Driver Sanka war sehr schön und interessant. In kurzer Zeit sahen wir sehr viel von Kultur, Land und Leuten. Kultur: Höhlentempel, Felsenfestung, Folklorevorführung ect. Land: Teeplantagen, Erdbeerenkultur, Horton Plains etc. Leute: Sehr angenehme, zuvorkommende, freundliche und fleissige Menschen. Essen: Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen war meistens Buffet, immer eine grosse Auswahl, sodass für jeden Geschmack etwas zu finden war. Bei den einwöchigen Badeferien in Negombo erholten wir uns von den vielen Eindrücken. Es ist ein sehr schöner Ort um Badeferien zu machen. Die schönen Sonnenuntergänge sind besonders erwähnenswert und man kann im sauberen Meer schwimmen. Sehenswert ist der Fischmarkt mit einer grossen Fläche von Sonnen/Luftdörrauslagen, die riesigen Mangroven Landschaften, die man mit Schiff befahren kann und die Tempel. Die Hotels waren alle gut gewählt, doch stimmt das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis leider nicht. Danach verbrachten wir 3 Tage in Unawatuna im Hotel Flower Garden. Alles stimmte, sehr gutes Essen, Preis/Leistung iO. In dieser Zeit durften wir die Gastfreundschaft von Samanths Familie erfahren. Nochmals ein herzliches Dankeschön für den feinen Abend. Auf der Fahrt nach Tissamaharama mit Samantha und Driver Fernando besuchten wir eine Schildkrötenfarm. In dieser Farm versuchen sie das Aussterben von fünf verschiedenen Schildkrötenarten zu verhindern. Das Naturjoghurt, dass überall an den Strassen in Tontöpfen angeboten wird genossen wir sehr. Am nächsten Tag war um 4.30 Uhr Tagwache. Wir machten eine Tiersafari durch den Yala Nationalpark. Weiter ging es zum Luftkurort Ella das auf 1200m über Meer liegt. Die sehr angenehme Temperatur kann man das ganze Jahr geniessen! Durch viele Kurven ging es wieder runter an den River nach Kitulgala. (Dort wurde der Film “Die Brücke am Kwai” gefilmt) Die letzten zwei Nächte verbrachten wir in Colombo im Hotel Galle Face. Wir genossen ein bisschen Luxus, nachdem wir viel Natur sahen. Da unser Retourflug erst nach Mitternacht war, bereicherten wir den Nachmittag mit einer Stadtrundfahrt. Beim letzten Nachtessen überraschte uns Samantha mit einem Geburtstagskuchen. Das war eine schöne Überraschung zum Abschluss von unserem Guide. Sri Lanka wir kommen wieder…

Dear Samantha Thank you for your services rendered to me and a group of other 5paxs with your co-partner Mr Keith during our trip in Sri lanka for 14days/13nights.(March-2015) It was nice and memorable one. So far during the trip I don't encountered any major problem but only small teething problem which is nothing at all. Overall it was a nice pleasant trip for us all.
Thank you.

Dear Samantha, Thanks for organizing an unforgettable journey through Sri Lanka! In June 2014 kieth did a trip with us: on the way to Kandy we visited the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage. In Kandy we had a nice walk through the city and went to Kandy temple and the traditional dance.The next day we went to Sigiriya Rock Fortress (UNESCO World Heritage) with impressive frescos. Further we went to Polonnaruwa and Dambulla (Golden Temple). On the way we saw a lot of the country and Kieth introduced us to traditional rice and curry! We also visited a turtle farm, which is a highlight especially for children… Kieth was a great and save driver and provided insights into the country! Best wishes from Austria.

We travelled in April 2014 round Sri Lanka and Samantha was always there to advise us when we organised our 2-week tour. He took into consideration the fact that we were travelling with our 2 daughters aged 8 and 12 and we all came back feeling like we had had a great adventure. Our tour took us to Kandy, Sigiriya, Ella (loved the Chill Out bar and the special birthday cake our driver Keeth Fernando had ordered for Phoebe), Yala (Cinnamon Hotel is a safari in itself, unbelievable how many animals roam around you without a care in the world and the staff was soooo attentive) and then relaxed in Hikkaduwa for 6 days. We really got to know our driver really well and not only was he always punctual, he was also a great driver, full of attentions. In 2 weeks we saw a multitude of animals including some giant turtles which were fed by our own hands seaweed on a daily basis. Overall a very memorable trip. Thanks to Dream Round Tour.
Hope you have a nice week. It is again mad here so it feels like our adventure was ages ago ...
Best regards
Karine

Samantha, Was great. I contacted him over the internet after I read a recommendation by someone else. Initially I was sceptic as I had bad experiences with service providers online but with Samantha it was a different experience. He helped me with the trip planning from before the trip. Arranged airport pick-up and accommodated all my changes. It was like having a local family in Siri Lanka as I felt straight at home. He was also competitive in pricing. I would strongly recommend Samantha for all your needs in Siri Lanka.
Best,

Ujjal Ghosh – From New Zealand

Was a great tour in early January 2014.Travelled with friends and young children. Covered a lot of the sights and also Yala National park. in 8 nights and 9 days. Samantha and his man Keith tried their best to make it as good as they could for us . Decent accommodation and great food at most of the places. Samantha is a thorough Gentleman and very humble and safe person to travel with. Always Smiling. Sri Lanka is a very pretty country lots to do and see. Quick tours are not recommended. Go for at least 15 days to enjoy. IT has all – Nature, Wild life, History, Culture , Beaches and Mountains and of course the great cuisine and fabulous sea food. Will have to make time again in future for another trip. His tours are pocket friendly and will not be pinching cost wise. All the best to Samantha and his team

Dear Samantha,
I was very happy, that you could organize a 2-weeks round trip of Sri Lanka for me within only 2 days. My trip was 100% pleasure thanks to Bhanty who was not only my driver but a true travel companion and friend. He is not only a kind person, but really cares for everything: The car was every day cleaned (in- and outside), he drove carefully and was always very punctual (Yes, we Germans like that :-) and thoughtful. On top of that he a knowledgable person who gave me good insights into Sri Lankas culture, Buddhism and Yoga. The schedule covered all the impressive historic monuments in Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Dambula, Kandy and Galle. I enjoyed the hiking to the “end of the world”, a train ride from Ohiya to Ella, a ride on an elephant, a safari in the Yale National park and a water safari on the Gin river near Galle. On top of that, I spent two days at a splendid Beach Resort near Triconmalee. What elso could one ask for? Now I am back home in the cold winter and think about this trip – that you and Bhanty made unforgettable. I had only the best impressions of your beautiful country and its friendly people and recommend everybody to book with you. All the very best! Ortwin Christ, Germany

Dear Samantha,
Thanks so much for the lovely holidays we had during last April 2013, everything was perfect and according to our wishes! The planning and the budget was matching our criteria and timing. Everything was great. We stayed for about 10 days and we had time to visit the Cultural Triangle, to do an elephant safari, visit a tea plantation and Pinawela, enjoy the cultural city of Kandy and rest at the lovely Unawatuna beach after such an exciting itinerary! but still recovering for the 1236 steps of Sigiriya such a breathtaking...views! ;-) We want to thank specially our great and experienced driver, Mr. Captain (in the picture) he was so helpful all the times trying to please our 7 year old daughter! You both really made a great team! We had such a fun! Hopefully we will come back soon. Meanwhile, we are still enjoying the souvenir of these beautiful days. You really have a great country full of lovely and nice people. Hope to see you soon,
Phil, Susana and Anastasia

Many thanks for the tour Jan 2013, Samantha, sanka made a very quick stay in Sri Lanka very fun for the two of us. We had a lot to see and not very much time in which to do it, yet you helped us plan our stay and get us from place to place on time! Not only that but you still found the time to stop at the roadside and show us something - be it red bananas, fresh coconuts, or a tree full of fruit bats! We particularly enjoyed the elephant orphanage, and the Tea Leaf (the restaurant near nuwara eliya where the photo of the three of us was taken). Many thanks for your patience, continual driving, and help finding us a place to shop in the last few hours before our flight! We will look you up when we return to Sri Lanka and do it all over again! Thanks again from Dan and Sam from the UK."
Thanks,
Sam and dan

Hi, vom 24. bis zum 31. Januar 2012 machten meiner Frau und ich mit “Dreamroundtour” eine Rundreise in Sri Lanka, die uns zu den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten des Landes führte. Trotz der für Mitteleuropäer hohen Temperaturen empfanden wir die Fahrt im klimatisierten Fahrzeug als angenehm. Unser routinierter und umsichtiger Fahrer “Sanka” steuerte uns sicher durch den chaotischen Straßenverkehr Sri Lankas. Er versorgte uns tagsüber mit Früchten und Getränken und tat auch sonst alles für unser Wohlbefinden.Die von “Dreamroundtours” gebuchten Hotels und Gasthäuser waren sorgfältig ausgesucht und lagen zumeist in ruhiger und schöner Umgebung. Wir haben die Fahrt sehr genossen. Gerling Eric

Hallo,
wir waren im Oktober 2011 mit Amila, einem Guide von Samanthas Team, unterwegs. Alles war prima organisiert und hat gut funktioniert. Im Vorfeld der Reise haben wir Vorschläge was wir sehen möchten an Samantha geschickt und er hat uns einen runden Vorschlag für die Tour erarbeitet. Unser Guide hat fließend Englisch gesprochen, hat uns viel über das Land und die Menschen erzählt und noch viele Dinge neben der Tour gezeigt. Sri Lanka ist ein sehr interessantes Land: Vom Hochland mit den Teeplantagen (wo man auch eine Tea-Factory besuchen kann) über die vielen Buddha Tempel bis hin zu den Nationalparks (wir waren im Yala National Park) gibt es viel zu sehen. Wir haben auch einen Jungle Walk in den Regenwald gemacht und dort bei einem Wasserfall gebadet. Die Leute sind sehr freundlich, viele haben uns auf der Straße gewunken und wir haben uns jederzeit überall absolut sicher gefühlt. Die Übernachtungen die uns vorgeschlagen wurden waren einwandfrei, der Jeep war auch gut und auch das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für die gesamte Tour prima. Alles in Allem: Sri Lanka ist auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert! Und wir können Samantha uns sein Team nur weiter empfehlen. Conni und Markus aus Deutschland Kind Regards from Germany! Conni and Markus

Winfried, Sibylle

Hallo samantha! Die Rundreise mit Dir im September/Oktober diesen Jahres (2011) war einfach super. Wir alle (meine Frau, unsere 3 großen Töchter und ich) sind immer noch sehr begeistert. Du hast uns viele Dinge gezeigt, auch außerhalb von unserem normalen Programm (Schlangenfarm, Elefantenreiten, Warane etc.). Besonders eindrucksvoll waren die Besteigung des Sigiriya-Rocks, die Felsenhöhlen von Dambulla, die alte Hauptstadt Polonnaruwa, die Eisenbahnfahrt nach Ella und die Wanderung auf den Horton Plains zu \"World\'s End\" und den wasserfällen mit Dir zusammen. Du warst immer ein sehr guter Fahrer und bist auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen. Wir können Dich nur uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen und wünschen allen anderen Gästen, die eine individuelle Tour buchen, eine ebenso eindrucksvolle Rundreise mit dem gleich guten schönen Wetter, wie wir es, trotz der gem. Länderführer \"vorgesehenen\" Monsumzeit hatten, da es nur einmal kurz regnete. Liebe Grüße aus deutschland von Winfried, Sibylle und den 3 Mädchen (Luise, Helene und Eva). Melde Dich auch auf facebook.

now I am at home after a long holliday time in your beautiful country. The plants, the animals and the peoples are different to us in Germany - so kindly, nice and helpful. The roundtrip with your company from 8th till 12th January was very interesting, many-sided and all-round. Specially the Guide "Radna" was very careful and comitted. He always help us to feel comfortable and I had the feeling to be in hands of serious and attentive staff. Also the driver was a good one and he had it not so easy by this bad raining wetter... I think the group was a little bit complicated and the wetter was terrible - so it was nesessary that all peoples made some compromise. The guide has handlet ist very good and I am totaly pleased with him and the driver. Last I will say thank you for all and greetings for this great staff. All the best wishes
Anita Parth
