M Daniela

The Yummiest Vegan Portuguese traditional meal you'll ever have

Daniela is simply the best host you will ever find. She picked us up from the metro station and was very attentive of our comfort at all times. We were welcomed with two wonderful starters, a main course which was a most wonderful vegan twist on a traditional portuguese dish and a dessert, all with homemade pumpkin bread with nuts. It was absolutely delicious and in no way made us feel the need for meat or fish. Daniela was delightful, engaging and funny, giving us a full "what to do and where to go" list of the city, besides thoroughly explaining how she cooked that amazing food and how nutritious it was. In sum, we had a fabulous evening, eating more than our stomachs could take but left with the greatest smile on our faces. You owe it to yourself to pay a visit to Daniela as with such quality and care and low price, you can´t get a better deal even if you dream it. Thank you so much, Daniela.

James Kamal

Visit the Famous Nuwaraeliya Village

From the outset Kamal made every attempt to make us comfortable. He asked what we knew of Kandy and before we left showed us around the university campus - something we would not have thought to do and well worth while.
On our journey to Nuwara Eliya Kamal stopped to buy local fruit and we stopped by a tea plantation, had a close look at the tea bushes and finished with a taster plate of local fruits.
Later we stopped at two waterfalls and after a hot walk up to view one of them, Kamal provided us with king cocnuts from which to take a drink of coconut milk.
All in all it was a most enjoyable day and we would not hesitate to reccomend Kamal for this or any of the tours he provides.

James Wasana

Dine in a Homely Setting!

I booked this dinner with for me and son to experience a traditional Thai dinner. The communication throughout my booking was perfect. Wasana asked what we liked to eat and made a menu based on my preferences down to the spicy level in the foods she prepared. Wasana and her husband picked us up at predetermined location in a timely fashion. The car ride was both informative on Thai culture and the area itself. When we arrived she invited into her home and there was a perfect meal all set up at the table. There was deep fried rice with a peanut sauce. Pad Thai. Yellow curry dish. A spicy vegetable dish. Beef sticks with a sauce that was to die for.the best steamed rice I've ever had. A butterfly pea beverage that was very tasty. Wasana and her hyenas both showed US the Proper way to eat this felicia meal. Every dish was perfect , fresh ingredients like nothing I've tasted during the past week I've spent in Thailand.After dinner she gave a gift of the traditional utility cloth given to Thai men. Along with a Vegas hat of patay sauce which unfortunately customs till from me when I arrived in the usa.
I would highly recommend her for hire to experience what I had. Thank you again
