“Meeting Janaka from Ceylon Discoveries Tours Ceylon and his driver Gihan, and traveling with them through Sri Lanka was such a wonderful and splendid experience which my husband Prashant and I will never forget. We hired Janaka for the first week of August of 2019 (not long after the terrorist attacks) as our tour guide for almost one week. It was the first time for us to visit Sri Lanka, and we can’t wait to return. Janaka is such...

“I was in Sri Lanka for three days and Janaka took me to see as much as he could see within that time. I really enjoyed the places that he took me and the things I’ve seen. Like the turtle farm, the safari, and the villages, temples and viewing the culture in general. It is my recommendation that if you are ever in the area and want to experience Sri Lanka- Janaka would be your best guide.”

We just finished a wonderful two week tour of Sri Lanka with Janaka as our guide. It was a great trip -- from the planning stages to the last day of our tour. Janaka was responsive and thorough when we set up the itinerary, answering my questions, responding to suggestions, and developing a tour that covered all the important sites of the island. We started with the most important archeological sites in Aukana, Anuradhapura, Mihintal...

I spent an amazing three weeks in Sri Lanka during the summer of 2017, with Janaka as my guide. I left the itinerary totally in his capable hands and he never failed to surprise me with a wide variety of experiences, from archeological sites, to wildlife in natural habitats, from cultural experiences to beautiful natural settings.

As we agreed, the accommodations were also varied, from small guesthouses to nature camps to luxury hotel...

"We spent a fabulous 2 weeks in Sri Lanka with Janaka as our guide in June 2016. We toured through a range of historic sites, wildlife parks, and mountainous areas. His interest and knowledge of wildlife - and in particular birdlife - was outstanding and he often took us on the back roads and off the beaten track to make the trip more interesting. We learnt a great deal about the history and culture of Sri Lanka as he shared his wide k...

Janaka guided us for great three excursions to Madu River,Galle and Kandy. Janaka was very knowledgeable on all aspects of Sri Lanka's culture, history and way of life. He was friendly and looked after us extremely well. We had lots fun and learnt a lot during these three days. We've already told him that we will be back to Sri Lanka to discover the rest of this amazing island and we look forward to our next trip with him as our guide.

We have recently returned to NZ from a fantastic 2 weeks in Sri Lanka with Janaka as our guide. We learnt so much as he shared his wide knowledge of all the places we visited. Janaka has a lovely friendly manner with a great sense of humor. We found him very considerate of our needs and interests as we travelled around. His suggestions of places to visit were excellent and he always met our requests willingly.

Dear Janaka, What a pleasure it has been to have you as a guide. Your knowledge of the country is top notch. History, geography, social customs, religion- you know it all. Most importantly you know how to take care of your travelers and always do your best to accommodate their needs. We all felt very lucky to have you as our guide.

anaka Thevin is a great tour guide. He is knowledgeable, efficient, flexible,and, most importantly, always friendly and enthusiastic. I cannot think of a single instance where Janaka let the group down or was unable to help an individual do something he or she desired. I highly recommend Janaka to anybody travelling to Sri Lanka. You will not only get an outstanding guide but you will also get to know a great person

Janaka was our guide on a 2 week tour of Sri Lanka. We visited the cultural centres of Polonnaruwa and Kandy, climbed Adam's Peak, went on safari in Udawalawe and relaxed on the beaches of the south coast. He was a brilliant guide, with expert knowledge of the country, and a great person to spend time with. We would highly recommend him for any tour of this fascinating and beautiful country.
