A customized trip with Duneeshya

Thank you Duneeshya.
I had a great experience in your cooking class.
Especially, to cook three different type of curry is very interesting to me.
I’d like to introduce you to my friends in Japan.

Thank you.

Gaylor Prasanna

Colombo to Kandy in 1 Amazing Day

I only had a short trip to Sri Lanka and i was glad that i took Prasanna's tour to Kandy. He is a knowledgeable guide and drives really well. If you're pressed for time and would like to see the beautiful sights around Kandy, i'd recommend this tour.

Tanitah Prasanna

Colombo to Historical Galle City in 1 Day

I had such a good time traveling with Prasanna and so happy to have round this site. This has made my trip to Sri Lanka! I definitely would recommend hanging with him as a guide as he knows the ins and outs of so many places and even suggestions not in guide books. He also speaks Spanish & Italian. Feel free to practice conversing!
