Real people, real experiences

We had an amazing 2 trips booked through Tony's Tours. We did the 2 day Ella trip and the day trip to Galle which were both absolutely fabulous. Everything ran like clockwork and the stop offs, restaurants and hotel used were all excellent.
It was an amazing experience getting out and about and experiencing the real Sri Lanka and being in safe hands.
Tony was very knowledgeable and we felt that we both learnt a lot.
We have amazing memories to carry with us and can't wait to return to Sri Lanka to explore more.
