Tailormade Tour 23 December 2017 – 06 January 2018 For Dom & Ruth Huou, and 3 Children –
We chose to do 7 days tour with `Unique` and have been pleased with both, the itinerary and our driver. We managed to tailor make a package that suited a balance of culture , great food and outdoor activities.On meeting our driver, he was helpful, friendly, efficient & knowledgeable throughout the trip .He was added value and made the whole trip run smoothly from place to place.We have all continued to say we would recommend Unique travels to every one we know.
We have always wanted to visit Sri Lanka & we are very glad that we chose `Unique ` to do so.The company was very accommodating when we asked if we could do a train ride as an extra.They also suggested doing a Bullock cart ride when we asked about doing an extra traditional activity.Unique travels gave us a more personal tour than the big companies. We felt that we saw more of the real Sri Lanka than we might have done on a more commercialized trip.We liked the way that we could tailor make some elements of the tour + The organized itinerary was a great mixture of cultural visits, Scenery, Wild life & fun activities such as Cycling, Walking and the White water rafting.
We had a fantastic 15 days trip with so much verity- Wild life, Relaxing beaches & stunning culture.The best bits were often the simplest-Learning about the food and the spices, seeing how they grow and cooking them.We had an unfailingly positive travel experience with interest for all ages in a widely colourful and peaceful place.We loved it all.
We found Sri Lanka to be a great place to visit. Its exotic , vibrant, particular but very friendly, welcoming and easy to travel around. Unique travels met our brief exactly with white water rafting, Elephants, tea train & surfing all packaged well for a teenage family. Very knowledgeable our guide was a legend.
Overall fantastic. Thank you!
We would definitely recommend The Unique Travel Company to others. Our tailor-made trip was exactly what we were after with a mix of culture, adventure and relaxation. Our driver was fantastic and very knowledgeable! The bus was also great and comfortable for our long drives. The additional activity of the 4×4 mud safari was very much appreciated, thanks to our driver’s recommendation. Thanks for an amazing trip!!
Our holiday to Sri Lanka was fantastic and memorable in every way. Unique Travel organised a fabulous and imaginative itinerary, including the combination of “Off the Beaten Track” and Luxury accommodation fascinating cultural sites, spectacular hiking in remote areas, wonderful safari and down-time too! Our driver/guide, Paul, was fantastic too and really made the holiday for us.
Both my partner and I had a fantastic 2 weeks on this tour. Overall, it is a great way to see so much of this beautiful country in such a short space of time. There were so many new experiences to take home. Being on a tour, makes you feel safe and relaxed and it would have been a different story doing it alone! I would recommend my friends to do a tour of this country! Thanks for a great time!
The Unique Travel Company delivered on all promises and expectations. The Off the Beaten Path trip in Sri Lanka proved to be a wonderful escape and insight into the Sri Lankan countryside. The travel was effortless due to the attentive services provided by our guide/driver.
Four of us travelled for 18 days on the “Off the Beaten Track” itinerary. It was perfect. There was a lot of diversity in the balance of cultural and outdoor activities. The Sri Lankan people are very gracious and welcoming. We were thrilled with our driver/guide, Anton. He took excellent care of us and happily adapted a couple of our activities when we wanted. We highly recommend Unique Travel!
Excellent. Reliable, informative and knowledgeable local staff. Great recommendations of boutique hotels. Puts enjoyable into experience.
We have really enjoyed a lot during these days. Everything has been great (mainly the stays at the Rosyth and the Reef… amazing places to be!!)…..
Well, as a summary, thank you very much for helping us to organise this amazing trip. We will strongly recommend your services to our colleagues for travelling to Sri Lanka!
Very impressed with uniqueness of the country and the company was excellent.
It is clear that the Company has a very large experience and good knowledge of the country. The hotels proposed originally were all good and the tour was well organised. The driver was very good and kind and we enjoyed the travel very much. We are happy with the experience and the country.
Many thanks to Sue, Roshan and the team for organising an amazing trip. You really listened to what we were interested in doing, and created a tailor-made experience that was perfect. We very much enjoyed the mix of cultural sites, cycling, trekking, wildlife safaris and meeting local people, as well as time at the beach. Our driver Namal was fantastic: a fount of local knowledge, very flexible in making adjustments to our itinerary, and also very helpful in suggesting great places to eat or visit. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and we will definitely visit again.
Thank you to all the team at The Unique Travel Company for making our 1st long haul holiday so memorable. Not an easy challenge putting together a tour that offers 3 teenagers culture and fun! We challenged Sue to show us the ‘real’ Sri Lanka and this she managed. We had lunch with locals and met families, we really feel like we saw Sri Lanka not just visited the place on holiday. Being practical we also know that using The Unique Travel Company and their knowledge of local deals saved us a considerable sum over other travel agents. We would go so far as to say that if it hadn’t been for The Unique Travel Company it unlikely we could have afforded to go to Sri Lanka. Beautiful country, beautiful people and amazing animals everywhere. A memorable holiday, thank you.
We have loved every minute of our trip and the sights and people we’ve seen have been amazing. It’s hard to say which of the days/trips with our favourite because they have all been special. Although seeing wild elephants at the side of the road is right up there! Paul, our driver was excellent and has added to our special trip. All we can say is thank you so very much for organising for us there will be tears as we take off tomorrow!
We went to Sri Lanka looking for a max of the sightseeing, nature and sports – the children usually don’t enjoy monuments and cultural activities. We discovered and experimented many things for first time and the vision in my kids eyes had no price…. We bring with us unforgettable moments.
We had a wonderful time – can’t fault the organisation everything went very smoothly. This is our second tour with “Unique”. Our driver, Chaminda, really helped to make the holiday special.
I couldn’t have asked for more from Sue and Pradeep (my driver). Sue put my fears at ease before my arrival and Pradeep has a great warm and welcoming face to make me safe and at home in Sri Lanka. Unique Travel offer many options for all different experiences and trips and I will definitely use them again when I return. Great value for money and service.
UTC compiled an itinerary tailor-made for our needs and offered excellent accommodation. We experienced a slight difficulty and the company resolved our issue swiftly and satisfactorily. We will revisit Sri Lanka and would definitely use Sue and her team again. Paul our driver was really great, friendly and informative and made sure we saw everything and looked after at all times. 10/10 !
Many thanks to you and your excellent team. We had an incredible three weeks, which we will treasure forever. It was a truly wonderful experience and Namal was an outstanding guide and driver. He looked after us very well. Thanks again!
The company was recommended by a friend. We requested their help for the middle seven days of our holiday, arranging the remaining days ourselves. Following email discussions about where we wanted to visit and what we wanted to do they produced an itinerary that resulted in a stress-free very enjoyable experience.
Just completed our second family trip to Sri Lanka with The Unique Travel Company and our guide/driver – Paul – another amazing adventure and experience in such a diverse island with numerous highlights i.e. sloth bears, elephants, food, tuk-tuks, trains boats and the friendliest people on the planet!
We have found “Unique Travel” exceptionally good from start to finish. Booking the holiday with Sue was easy and Sue’s knowledge of Sri Lanka is amazing and even tailored our holiday for the time of year. Our guide/driver, Namal, was exceptional and added extra value to our honeymoon – superb local knowledge, always smiling and very friendly, nothing was ever too much trouble for him. When we come back to Sri Lanka we will be coming back with Unique Travel and hopefully Namal. Would 100% recommended to friends and family.
We had a fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka and would recommend your company for touring the island. Every day we had different experiences, they were enjoyed by all of us. No two days with the same. I would highly recommend your company,. Nothing was too much trouble from the beginning to the end. Thank you.
I was very impressed with the service starting with my first contact with Sue on the telephone to leaving Sri Lanka having spent nine days in the company of my driver/tour guide, Paul. I came away feeling like I had a truly personalised tour of Sri Lanka and would not hesitate to do another “solo” adventure with The Unique Travel Company during off peak season. Thank you very much.
A fantastic tour from start to finish! So much to enjoy every day with new things to see and experience. The children had a great time too. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Amazing experience the whole family.
“The Unique Travel Company” provided us with an excellent and varied trip in Sri Lanka. We were able to adapt the itinerary to our own needs and interests and information and responses to our questions were answered promptly. Our guide/driver was exceptional and took every effort to ensure we had a fantastic holiday. A stunningly, beautiful country of rich diversity from beaches to the Hill country to the National Parks. However the most amazing thing was the warm welcome we received from the Sri Lankan people 🙂
Sue was very helpful and patient when organising our holiday as we had a lot of special needs. A really good variety of accommodation with good rooms with views – thank you so much to Sue and Roshan! The holiday was just what we wanted – not to touristy and expensive. We would definitely recommend anyone to use Unique Travel.
We would thoroughly recommend the Unique Travel Company. From beginning to end everything went well and all the hotels were varied as we ask for but all were of good standard. The driver, Huddah was very professional and friendly and helpful at all times. We would certainly use Unique Travel again and recommend them to friends. Thank you so much!
We found that throughout our travels in Sri Lanka “The Unique Travel Company” has been extremely well organised and had a backup plan for any situation we found ourselves in. We had a vast variety of great experiences including the beautiful wildlife and nature, and the incredibly different environment that we found ourselves in. We found that the destinations of our travels proved to teach us an immense amount of cultural context and historical information about the island. The entire experience has been both surprising, and absolutely amazing. Thank you very much.
Our family of four spent two weeks on tour in Sri Lanka. Unique Travel arranged everything for us. Our guide, Huddah, was fantastic and really helped show us the natural wonders of the island. Bring your binoculars and enjoy!
For us, “The Unique” experience was truly exceptional, tailor-made to suit our preferences. Our driver, Paul was helpful and cheerful, steering us safely through some difficult conditions. Even the usual “monsoon” weather couldn’t spoil our enjoyment of the trip. We would definitely recommend The Unique Travel to anyone thinking of visiting Sri Lanka.
This is our second trip with “Unique”. Well-planned by Sue and very well driven by Namal. Great experience for the whole family. Accommodation was well chosen to suit our needs. Thank you!
Having visited Sri Lanka before we asked Sue to provide us with an itinerary that included our “must sees” plus some recommendations based on her expertise. We got everything we wish for and so much more, including a driver who went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied with every aspect of our holiday, and that we didn’t miss a thing. Our accommodation range from the most basic to the height of luxury, enabling us to experience a true taste of the diversity that this beautiful country has to offer. We will be back for our third visit and will most definitely use The Unique Travel Company to help make that experience as wonderful as this has been.
I will remember many brilliant experiences of from this trip – riding Rani the elephant, holding a two-day old turtle, the festival in Kandy, Safari and cycling through the beautiful countryside. Chaminda was lovely and we will be emailing him some pictures on our return. The hotels were a much higher quality than we expected – Hotel Thilanka being our favourite. The people of Sri Lanka are very friendly and we never felt badgered with goods or for money as you are in other countries.
“Unique Travel Company” put together a fantastic holiday for us encompassing all the areas we wanted to see. We were driven by an excellent, helpful and well-informed driver to the various sites, e.g. temples, ancient monuments, local beauty spots as well as the beaches, elephant transit camp and best of all the game drives. I have fallen in love with the wonderful Sri Lankan people and their beautiful country and would love to come back and visit again.
We’ve had a wonderful couple of weeks – Sri Lanka is amazing and so varied. Each day we thought we’d struck lucky – and the next day felt it again – never a dull moment – always enriching! A fascinating country and culture, so beautiful, such kind people and I think we probably spent two weeks with the best guide and driver in Sri Lanka! Lucky Us! Thanks Huddah!
Wonderful trip, wonderful island and people. Ajith our guide, the best guide we have ever had.
Unique put together a superb tour for the eight of us and topped it with a truly excellent team of driver, assistant and guide. Because the guide spoke excellent English, he was able to act as a bridge to help us understand many aspects of the culture and bring us the extra experiences that make a special trip special – a meal in a local family’s house; eating beautiful curries off Lotus leaves with our hands: a walk around a village getting glimpses of what people grow in their gardens. All this on top of flexing the itinerary when rain, heat or tiredness made a change of plan necessary. We had lessons in Singhalese every day so that we could at least greet and thank people properly. Thank you to all who made our trip so special.
We would highly recommend this tour to those wishing to experience a varied mix of Sri Lankan life, culture and history. All dealings with this company were undertaken to an excellent standard as well as providing very good value for money. Paul, our driver, has been very professional and made our holiday perfect.
Thanks for organising an amazing trip for us! We had a fantastic adventure – everything went so smoothly from pick up at the airport right through to the end of our trip. Paul was great – brilliant with the kids and always made sure we had everything we needed. We loved the variety of hotels and homestays – they all had something different about them and the people were lovely (as was the food!). Loads of exciting and different things to do and see as well which kept us all happy. All in all it was an amazing first adventure holiday for our family – hopefully the first of many……
We would like to thank you for organising our trip to Sri Lanka, it was truly amazing. The hotels were stunning and each day was an adventure. What made it an extra special trip was the care and attention given to us by our driver, Dulanthe. It felt as if we were on holiday with a friend. We would love to return to Sri Lanka one day, and will be using your company again.
Right from the start, all of our queries were dealt with promptly, any of our suggestions were looked into thoroughly and all of our requirments were met. Our driver, Dulantha, was fantastic – he was very knowledgeable and interesting. All of the sights that we saw and activities we went on were brilliant. We wouldn’t have changed anything! We particularly enjoyed our guided walk through the paddy fields, seeing local villages and eating traditional Sri Lankan meals cooked by villagers. Other highlights were seeing 100 elephants in Minneriya, white water rafting at Kithulgala and the train ride from Ella to Horton Plains. We would thoroughly recommend The Unique Travel Company.
It was our first visit to Sri Lanka, although we have it travelled extensively throughout Asia and India. Sri Lanka is an amazing place and Sue put together the ideal trip to experience some of the highlights. The service was great and very personal and our guide/driver really made a special three weeks. We will be returning soon.
