Solo Traveller

Thansk to Eurolanka to organising a very individual tour for me. Nice little bungalows or appartments were chosen as i wished. The driver dorv every safe in the crazy Sri Lankan traffic and all was set up to meet my requirements.

Staying in Galle with Yusuf and seeing all the beautiful places (tee plantation, river safari, turtle retreat, shopping areas and all the interesting temples, mosuqes and churches) made me feel very welcomed in this nice city.

I can highly recommend Yusuf and his team for the indidvidual Sri Lankan travel experience and especially the foody experience. The home made food was like heaven….

Thanks for a winderful time – i will definitely come back!
