Thank you so much for everything - the tour was truly brilliant and we really enjoyed it! Duminda was wonderful.
Thank you again - I will definitely be recommending Sri Lanka and JF Tours to my friends and family.
I would strongly suggest to trust JF Tours Operator since they are so cooperative and their offers fulfill the ''value for money''. They are serious and whatever they offer are really for the clients' satisfaction and happiness. It was a safe trip under their guidance and proposals. Rangika and Jeewa were so kind during the research and the execution of the tour. Try to be happy for an unforgettable trip to Sri Lanka island!!!
Exceptionally responsive tour operator. As a group of 5 with an elderly traveler, we had a customized 5 day tour with very specific and detailed requests, which were all meticulously fulfilled, with a level of personal care, patience and responsiveness that was quite remarkable. Excellent background coordination between center coordinator and driver and all the service providers en-route. Service at its best! They obviously enjoy what they do!
We had a safe journey home. Thank you for asking. Overall, we had a very good time and really enjoyed the trip in Sri Lanka. Thank you for organizing everything. I have listed below the highs of the trip which may be of interest to you in organizing your future trips.
- The Buddhist Temple in Dambulla. The local market just opposite of the temple (which was not part of the trip) was a very pleasant surprise with some local cakes.
- Sigiriya. Well worth the climb.
- The village tour. The people and the food were very authentic. One of the most pleasant stops.
- The wood factory and spice garden on the way to Kandy from Sigiriya. Nice approach and very informative.
- The Cultural Show in Kandy. It was quite enjoyable.
- The tooth relic temple. Unfortunately, we were a bit tight on schedule to fully appreciate.
- The train trip. The views were absolutely gorgeous. I was definitely right to insist for it.
- The tree house. Nice experience, the kids loved it.
- Bentota Beach. The kids had a very nice time.
- Last but not least, Pio. He was excellent. We were very happy to have him with us.
We returned safely late yesterday. The hotels and tour you arranged was very good and we all enjoyed. Both hotels offered their very best services to us. So thanks again for your excellent service. Both children were very impressed with the arrangements made by JF tours and have sent their experience to their friends in uk.
Take care and look forward to hear from you.
The Tour was amazing. Senal organized it well. Going beyond what is expected. We will definitely recommend JF Tours to Our Friends.
Thanks a lot for everything. We are richer in our sprit for to know a wonderful country like Sri Lanka. For sure we come back and I will suggest my friend to contact you for holidays! Very professional and very gentle!
25th of March - 03rd of April 2016
Senal arranged a Fantastic trip. We are very satisfied and will recommend JF Tours to our friends.
Very happy and satisfied with your arrangements and the tour, we will recommend you when our children & friends visit Sri Lanka.
We wanted to let you know, as soon as we returned, of our complete pleasure of the Holiday we have just experienced. Our arrival, the welcome dinner, and the farewell by JF Tours, were much appreciated. It made us feel very special.
We were presented with two very interesting books on the Railways, I have already dipped into the books, and there is more to read. On our trip to Sri Lanka our local Tour Guide from JF Tours, Lalith Weerasinghe made the whole experience exceptional through his extraordinary delivery, communication skills, selection of sights, knowledge of the country and professionalism. JF Tours were simply excellent, and clearly showed that they wanted to put on the very best holiday for us. All kinds of people popped up to make the Holiday work, particularly the rail staff on all the trains. The comfort on the trains and the service was excellent. The hotel selection was excellent, which was a good mix of traditional and modern. The range of places we visited, and the information given was excellent. There is nothing that we would change, other than being in the country longer.It was quite a ‘busy’ programme, but with the distances involved and the timescale this was inevitable. The arrangements between train travel and the JF Tours bus travel worked out extremely well.
Thank you so much for all your hard, and effective work behind the scenes to make this such a success. It was a great holiday.

I have no complains. My tour was wonderful. I will recommend JF tours and thanks for the people who recommended Jf Tours to me. I particularly commend you on an excellent itinerary at such short notice. Many Thanks.
Great Trip. We loved our experience with JF Tours from the warm welcome with flowers, itinerary, booklet, Gift at departure and great hotels. All hotels were lovely. Jeewa was always very professional, smiling and knowledgeable.
"Being a seasoned traveler, I am quite picky when it comes to organizing and planning tours. JF tours not only lived up, but also exceeded my expectations. They were swift with responding to my queries and providing options. Rangika was extremely patient while helping me plan the trip and was always flexible and accommodated my special requests. She made many suggestions based upon my preference, one of it being the trip abroad their special Viceroy II carriage, which offers a scenic train ride through the mountains with fabulous views of tea plantations.
Jeewa, our guide was extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our 9 day trip across the country. He was an excellent ambassador for his country and gave us a glimpse of daily life in Sri Lanka as well as all the beauty the country has to offer for its visitors.
We will definitely return to Sri Lanka for another trip very soon!"
Dear Nihal & Senal. Many thanks for the great organization of our holiday. It was fantastic. We really appreciate the service of Nihal and his attention to small details which made the difference.
Had a lovely time in Sri Lanka, seeing the history, culture and the beautiful sites on this journey. Friendly driver who has entertained us on journey with a lot of information. Would definitely recommend Jf Tours to our friends & families
Thanks for reaching out--and for the lovely birthday gift. It's perfect and deeply appreciated. You guys are the best and I'm definitely returning to Sri Lanka because of the service and hospitality your team provided.
United States of America
I really appreciate your great support for our visit of Sri Lanka & Maldive, all the arrangements are perfect and gave us the best memories!
We had a lovely time in Sri Lanka but unfortunately not enough time to do everything! I hope that one day we will return to see more of the country.
Please convey our thanks to Jeewa for his driving and his knowledge of Colombo and where to go and what to see. I hope we didn’t keep him away from his family for too long. We will certainly contact you again when we next plan a visit to you lovely country.
See you as soon as we can come back again! love jeewa, love sri Lanka. Thank you for making it a special trip as ever.
A Fantastic Tour, we felt we could not have seen more in the short time we had. very well planned. Gayan was a brilliant driver, we felt very safe on your mad roads. he knew about everything. kasthurika was very helpful throughout. Overall tour arrangements of JF Tours was excellent. Definitely would visit your country again.
Thank you once again.
The tour was very well planned, there was nothing to complain about. surely there is space for improvements in hotels and meals at hotels, but the overall arrangements of the tour company was good.
Gayan is a fantastic person. the best we ever got!
Thank you once again.
We had a very nice time in Sri Lanka. We loved your country.We were very happy with the driver. Some of the hotels were very hided, but he managed to find everywhere. We liked Mass Villa a lot. People there was very very kind, and the place it is very beautiful.
Thank you very much for the presents.
We are on touch!
"Extremely satisfied!!!! 5/5 !!! keep up the good work!!"
"Charles was an excellent, helpful and well informed driver /guide, and companion. The train journey was spectacular."
"Would certainly recommend this tour to anyone, train enthusiast or not. A great way to see the real Sri Lanka."
"At least 5 star all the way! It can't get better than this! Sri Lanka delivers and is full of surprises."
"I love my trip. It was a surprise to me. Excellent service, Thank you."
"All staff was extremely professional. Nothing was too hard. Fun to be with."
"Train journeys were the highlight of trip for us."
It was a truly memorable experience and I would like to thank you for working with us on this FAM trip. Feel free to share my programme across your social media / facebook pages and online. I hope you enjoy listening to the report and that people from Ireland will feel the desire to visit your wonderful country. You will always have a supporter in me and congratulations on your product. I will be in touch again once my written & online reviews start to appear in the next number of weeks.
Thank you very much for organizing my tour of your delightful country. It really is magical. The view I had at Mihintale after having climbed 1700 steps was a truly remarkable experience and one that I will never forget. However, what touched me most was the peaceful, smiling generosity of so many people in Sri Lanka.
I would dearly love to see Sri Lanka again, especially Kandy and Colombo because I felt I did not see all that much of them.
Thank you again for everything, Rangika.
With heartfelt thanks,
"A wonderful experience! The viceroy is beautiful I thank you for your excellent service and kindness, thoroughly recommend this trip."
"An excellent breakfast was served on the Viceroy as we departed at 7.00 am from Colombo to Galle on a fine morning."
"The Viceroy special is an excellent carriage. Very efficient service. It was a wonderful morning journey."
"Thanks Yashen, yes we got home safe and sound, and again we would like to thank you and Mihiran for making the holiday such a success!! Hopefully we will be able to return again. We have told a few of our friends of the good time we had and given them your name, so you may hear from them."
"Wonderful Railway Adventure in Sri Lanka together. Thanks for your company, enthusiasm, an good cheer. We were all privileged to partake in what can only be described as pure rail heritage excellence."
"As a member of the recent ‘Viceroy Special’ Tour Group that visited Sri Lanka recently I would like to firstly commend you on the absolutely fantastic job you did with all the organizational details. I feel confident that your high level of commitment contributed to the smooth flowing and overall enjoyment of the trip.
Secondly, I would like to acknowledge the exceptional contribution made by our two Sri Lankan guides, Prabath and Asanka. Nothing was too much trouble for either of these two wonderful, professional people. They were extremely polite, compassionate and very skilled at accommodating a wide spectrum of the needs and requests of tour members. They also displayed a broad knowledge and genuine willingness to share with us a myriad of information about Sri Lanka and its culture.
Finally, thanks are also extended to Tim, for his encyclopedic knowledge, and Scott, for his infectious enthusiasm. Through their mutual interest in everything ‘rail’ they worked well together and this was reflected in the joy they brought tour members.
Once again – well done.
- Regards and best wishes - "
"I am back home and we have had snow in the past days, so I miss the nice climate of Sri Lanka! I did a wonderful trip and I keep in my mind beautiful memories. I was received by Jaya and Nuwan families very nicely, they are simple peoples, very kind with a great heart! I will send photos for them to the adress of JF Tours. Also I am working on the book that I promised you. It will take little time but it is worth it! I wish to inform you about our blog, it is written in French but you can see some photos taken during our tour. My best regards to you and all the team."
"I can 100% say that we had the most fantastic trip – made entirely all the more enjoyable (it made the trip) with Jeewa’s fantastic company, information, and very safe driving. We were looked after like Royalty. I consider him a friend now, as does my Wife. I have obviously not met any of your other Tour Guides – but I would place a wager that he is the best. So thank you for allocating Jeewa to us for our 19 day visit. We got on extremely well together. Each day was better than the one before in experience (although each day offering a different wonder). Your Country is beautiful. So much to see, and so colourful and friendly.
I also have to say all of the accommodation you selected and booked for us was 5 star at least, so once again, thank you. We made many, many friends. Your choices and decisions were spot on – great. Amazing Hotels. In fact the only place I did not rate at all was the Heritance Tea Factory, which you did not arrange – I booked that one.
JF Tours will get 100% rating on Trip Advisor – and I have already mentioned you to many of my friends and small family. I should expect you will get several enquiries and orders as a result."
"Team at JF Tours,
I just wanted to thank you again for putting together such a brilliant package for my friends and I. We had a wonderful time and Charles was a really brilliant guide. It was a busy trip, but don’t worry, none of us thought it was too much and it was great to have been able to have seen so much of your beautiful country!
- Kind regards"
"We’ve loved our amazing holiday. Extremely satisfied with services of the driver guide. The sights knowledge gained and fun times will not be forgotten. Thanks Ivor & Kanchana for the great service."
"To Team at JF Tours,
Thank you so much for all your efforts in arranging everything for us. You have made our stay particularly memorable and everything you did worked despite our last minute changes.
Once again, thank you for all the arrangements and for the wonderful experience of the train. I hope to be back soon.
Very best wishes,"
"I hope that you are well.
Chandima and I are now back in Luxembourg and after the amazing tour of SL, it is difficult to get back to ‘normal’ life.
I wanted to thank you for your help/flexibility and understanding during the organization of our tour. You have really been great and it was a pleasure to deal with you.
I know that it was not easy to organize the tour with all the different arrivals/departures, ‘special’ requests and many changes that we asked. The tour was organized perfectly and all the travelers really enjoyed themselves.
Is there any website where you wish me to write a testimonial on JF Tours?
- Kind Regards"
