Client ~ Malini Senthinathan

Just made a trip to Sri Lanka for 9 days with my Bestie. We did lots of sightseeing and adventurous hiking  to famous spots in Colombo, Sigiriya, Ella, Kandy, Mattala and few others. We had an amazing experience with Dilhan. He was very helpful in guiding and assisting us throughout the trip, being punctual and patience to make us happy and satisfied in what we want or required. He also assisted us in communicating with the locals in their local dialect. It was indeed very fortunate for Jayeswari & myself to have found him for this adventurous trip of ours. Thanks a bunch for your service & care. Wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Hi Dilhan! We are finally back at home from our 6 week journey, and we wanted to take a moment to thank you before any more time passes by. Of all the places we visited - Malaysia, Thailand, India, and the Middle East - Sri Lanka was our favorite spot, in part because of you! We cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had with you and Chamila. It made our trip very special. The time you spent with us and the places we visited will stay in our hearts forever. I don't know what we expected from Sri Lanka - but you exceeded our expectations. When I reflect upon our travels and think of Sri Lanka, I will always remember your wonderful TLC and smiling face :)  Thank you so much. Blessings to you and your family.
