Sam (Nalin) our guide was patient & helped guided us, patiently explained the various sights & cultural nuances. The vehicle provided was clean and Nayana was a wonderful & safe driver. In & all a great experience!! Thank you Lalith!

Dear Francoise, I take this opportunity to thank you so much for the wonderful holiday we had in Sri Lanka. As you know the D… recommended you and we are so grateful to them for that.
These days so much is arranged remotely via the internet and there is no sense of relationship when buying a product or service. But your care of us was not only unexpected it was very so welcome and appreciated. Thank you so much.
From the very beginning when we contacted you we were delighted with the process and the choices we were offered. The descriptions of the hotels was very useful and as it turned out very accurate.
We were very happy with the booking process and the information and advice we were given by Shanti. We arrived in Sri Lanka and were greeted by your representative with his wide welcoming smile and his very helpful manner.
We then met Nandana. Our first impression was of quiet and gentle manner and we immediately felt safe with his driving. He was brilliant. His van was very comfortable. Throughout our holiday he was caring and kind and very flexible. He suited our family perfectly. He was always in the background but not bossing us about or telling us what to do. It may be some would prefer that but it would not have suited us at all. When we had a problem he would calmly sort it. He was knowledgeable and informative. So we loved Nandana. Again I must say his driving was perfect. How he knew all the roads to some of the hotels located so remotely such as the the Hideaway - we rely so much on GPS but he had them all in his head!
We all absolutely loved Sri Lanka. The people are so friendly and we felt very safe. There was not any feeling of tourists being taken advantage of. Everyone seemed happy to help. We found the climate delightful after the heat of Abu Dhabi and we were very lucky to avoid most of the bad weather. Thanks you so much Francoise for such a wonderful holiday. You clearly have great knowledge and experience.
We will recommend you highly to friends and family.

I would like to thank Shanti for organizing a great holiday. A special thanks to Anthony who was our guide for the trip. He was always present to guide us in and around different places with a wealth of knowledge on Sri Lankan heritage and culture. While designing the trip i had asked Shanti to give me a feel of the Sri Lankan heritage intertwined with some of the Ramayana trails given its significance to the Indian culture. When the trip ended I felt Shanti had delivered the experience I wanted. Look forward to some more Asian tours with Shanti. Thanks once again, Lalith, for organizing a great trip.

Our time in Sri Lanka was plain sailing - thanks to arrangements made by Shanti Travels. From the first day we landed in Colombo to the last we were well taken care of. The accommodations arranged for us were comfortable and the hill resorts were scenic and peaceful. Most of all the people were lovely. We had an enjoyable 10 days and hope to visit again.

Thanks Venubashini for the travel arrangements. Things have been smooth - much thanks to Nuwan. He has been helpful and professional and a careful driver. Thanks for making this a fuss free, smooth holiday.

Thank you, Lalith, for your attention before and during our trip to Sri Lanka. Thank you so much for your help and support. It was also nice to speak to you during our tour, which is a really nice service. Our driver Nuwan was really great, the car comfortable and safe. Do a good job again. The expat community is not bad here in Mumbai and they all have to get out of this city. :-)) All the best for you

Our trip was very well organized and amazing. It was very quick and easy to work with our travel advisor Vinod. The welcome folder was very well prepared with all of the details and information we needed, plus recommendations and suggestions. Our driver Raj was excellent, especially in India’s busy streets! He was very pleasant, respectful and always on time. We would love to have him as our driver again.

I had a wonderful experience! All the details had been organized well and taken care of, and yet I had the freedom to do exactly what I wanted. I am glad I chose to travel with the agency than travel independently. Excellent recommendations from my travel designer who made my program adaptable to my wishes and price range. My driver was incredibly knowledgeable about each area and gave great suggestions on activities for me (photography related)

I wanted to thank you for all your help in assisting with planning our incredible journey. We had a fantastic time in your country and our complaint is that our time in Sri Lanka was too short !!! Lalith, we really enjoyed our holiday in Sri Lanka, once again thank you for all your help.

The trip was great! Everything worked very well (I was even a bit surprised). The travel itself was well elaborated, the hotels were very well equilibrated, from the more basic ones to the luxury resorts as the Dune or the Taj Malabar in Cochin. A very special experience was the trip on the boat (Spice Coast Cruises) -> Simply great! Also a very big compliment for Sudhir, our driver. He was someone we could fully rely upon. As a summary we were extremely satisfied with the travel and the organization from Shanti Travel. Thank you very much for your support, and in case Isabelle is still within Shanti, give her our warm regards.

Wonderful experience! Everything was taken care of & I still felt I had the freedom to do what I wanted. I got to do so much more than had I tried to do this trip solo. Excellent recommendations!
