It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing food and service. Staff are extremely polite and friendly and I just want to say that, in addition to awesome food, we had a delightful waiter, “Dhanushka”. He had just the right balance of friendliness and efficiency. He recognized that we wanted time to visit and made certain that we had everything we needed.

We -a group of 11 people- traveled in Sri Lanka in a very difficult time, in the very week of corono virus outbreak started in the country. Dilhan, the owner of Traumland was personally our guide, and I can’t recommend him and his company enough. After one week in Sri Lanka with Dilhan, I can say with my 25 years of travel experience around the world, he is one of the the best travel professionals you can ever meet. We visited Negombo, Sigiriya, Dambulla Cave, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Mirissa, Galle and Colombo. Dilhan is very knowlegable, enthusiastic, energetic, and he loves his country. Despite all difficulties, limitations and last minute changes, he tried everything to make sure that our experience remains unforgettable. I appreciate him very much for his flexibility, his creative thinking and problem solving skills. We had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka and would love to come back one day! I’d 100% recommend Traumland Tours. Don’t look for anybody else.

The city of Kandy in Sri Lanka is renowned as the social and cultural capital of the country. This breathtaking hill country is the perfect place for relaxing and reflecting. This city is well known for housing many ancient temples, and among them, the most renowned is the temple of 'Dalada Maligawa'(The Temple of the Tooth). Here, the tooth relic of Lord Buddha is reserved. It attracts thousands of visitors including the devotees to this city per year. Apart from that, this city has the largest and beautiful botanical garden in the island, known as Peradeniya Botanical Garden.On the other handRising dramatically from the central plains, the enigmatic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya is perhaps Sri Lanka's single most dramatic sight. Near-vertical walls soar to a flat-topped summit that contains the ruins of an ancient civilisation, thought to be once the epicentre of the short-lived kingdom of Kassapa, and there are spellbinding vistas across mist-wrapped forests in the early morning.

This was amazing! Our guides were awesome! Travelling around Colombo quickly and efficiently, seeing all the sites close up, with photo stops anytime you wanted! We visited Hindu temples and Buddhist temples with complete explanations by our guides. We stopped at two local shops for authentic souvenirs, and then went for lunch for authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. The tour was advertised to be 3-4 hours, but ours was 5+ hours!

9. Beautiful Sri Lanka - 6 Days Tour (Colombo-Sigiriya-Kandy -Galle)

Colombo Sightseeing

Visit Sigiriya Rock Fortress located in the heart of Srilanka between the towns of Dambulla and Habarane which is one of the most popular attractions in Sri Lanka. Kandy -Sensitive slope nation breezes instigate the fog to tenderly part, uncovering brilliant houses in the midst of Kandy's implausible forested radiance. In the focal point of the town, three-wheelers lurch around elusive corners, raising a delicate splash that undermines the silk saris worn by neighborhood ladies. Galle - The city resembles no other city in Sri Lanka, and meandering around through the tight lanes makes you even overlook that you are in Sri Lanka. It really wants to walk the lanes of a medieval city in Europe! Extremely peculiar in away.

The vehicle was top of the range with all safety regulations being complied with and always spktless. They were always on time and always very friendly.Hermanta never hesitated in going the extra mile to please us. Most of all their rates were very competitive. They really made our stay in Sri Lanka a memorable one. Well done guys.
