My husband and I had two amazing weeks in Sri Lanka. Euphoria helped us to plan a great itinerary at a very good price, even if I contacted them 5 days before arriving in Sri Lanka. We stayed in some very good hotels and had a very good driver, Kumar, and offered us with a very nice Toyota car for the tour. Kumar was our guide for most of the trip, but we also had 2 local guides in Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa who were born there, so they knew the places and the history very well. Euphoria also arranged us not only an elephant ride, but also an elephant shower, and we were the only ones who had it :). The guide always helped us to buy fruits, beers at local prices, and eat in very good restaurants. They provided us a complimentary lunch and a head massage at their spice garden, and the company manager met us personally, which was really great. They really made our trip great, so when we will decide to visit again, for sure we will go with them.

Thank you for organising a memorable honeymoon for us. We have memories of a lifetime due to our well planned honeymoon which we felt was perfect in everyway. We had a good balance of relaxation and travelling around the country, and your customer service was second to none from the moment we sent in the inquiry until our drop at the airport. This was one of the main reasons we decided on Euphoria since other operators that we were in contact kind of got frustrated when we asked many questions, but your team always had time to answer our questions. Gayan, our chauffeur guide was very polite and had a very good knowledge about the various sites we visited. Our favourite hotel was ‘Vil Uyana’ and recommends it to other couples. We will return soon!

I was at first a bit hesitant to use Euphoria as i couldn't find any reviews about the company online, and we were three girls travelling. However, i am so glad we choose Euphoria. The service that has been provided to us is far beyond what we expected! Euphoria is a very professional travel company whom i would recommend to anyone going on a holiday in Sri Lanka and want first class service. I would like to leave you a few comments about Mr.Sisira, our driver: Sisira has been the best driver and guide to us. He has been so helpful, and always done his very best to make our holiday unforgettable. Sisira is an admirable man, and i cannot tell you enough how much he has made our trip close to perfect.

Susan & Michael Steven-Jones (UK)

'From the initial enquiry through to our departure from Sri Lanka the team at Euphoria Exotic Holidays offered a competitive, professional and personal service. The holiday was above our expectation and every detail and request fulfilled. We had a wonderful trip in such a beautiful and diverse country. We saw amazing temples, archaeological sites, abundant wild life and so much more. Our tour was greatly enhanced by our friendly driver/guide Sisira whose knowledge and love of his country was made clear from day one - we made a real friend. I would highly recommend Euphoria Exotic Holidays if you are planning a trip to Sri Lanka. Their attention to detail, communication and overall care for us as individuals, was second to none.

Isabelle & Sarah (UK)

After many months searching travel sites and reading The Lonely Planet from cover to cover we were ready to book a holiday of a lifetime to Sri Lanka. Thankfully, i found Euphoria Exotic Holidays, from the start Sashini answered my many questions and reassured my fears! Thank you Euphoria for helping plan a tailor made tour of adventure and romance where my daughter and i fell in love with an incredible island. From the moment we stepped out of the airport and were greeted by kind smiling Sisira our guide i knew we were in safe hands. We travelled across Sri Lanka and found it beautiful and diverse, people were friendly and welcoming. Sisira was so knowledgable and made our holiday truly wonderful. He went out of his way to feed my daughter's passion for wildlife. We even helped a local mahout in Habarana bath his elephant in a river early one morning. All the hotels we stayed in were fantastic and handpicked by Sashini, even to finding the best rooms with spectacular views. From boutique hotels to tree houses in the rain forest neither myself or my teenage daughter wanted the holiday to end! Thank you Euphoria Exotic Holidays you exceeded our expectations. I only hope one day we can return.

Arthur, Isaure, Guy, Patricia, & Loo Li-May (France)

Arthur: This family trip was a real delight for us, mostly because of your good treat. We will recommend Euphoria to all our friends who will be travelling to SL! The products that you are producing at your spice garden are excellent! I might be interested to get some more. Thanks again for your great devotion in making this trip a one to be remembered. All the best to Euphoria and Sisira-our guide!

Isaure: Thank you so much Sashini & Euphoria for what you have done for us during those amazing holidays in your country. We had a very good time. All the family had a good experience here and also time to rest and enjoy which was very important. Wish you the best to you, and your business :)

Alistair Cromie & Family (UK)

Hi Sashini, we had a great trip thanks, and the weather at Bentota and Mirissa was great! Your service was excellent, always replying promptly and clearly. Our driver, Erish, was very reliable, helpful and knowledgable and i would recommend him. Many thanks for all your assistance, and i shall be recommending you to my colleagues. Regards, Al.

Euphoria Exotic Holidays (tailor-made holidays to Sri Lanka)- gave us the best experience of this wonderful island!

We would strongly recommend Euphoria Exotic Holidays if you are planning a trip to Sri Lanka. By providing a short list of our interests, preferences and budget, Ms. Sashini organized the whole trip including top hotels, a private English-speaking driver/guide, and activities planned for each day. I have never experienced such a relaxing holiday where every step of the journey is detailed planned in order for you to relax and enjoy this wonderful island!

Natalia & Ruben (Spain)

Sri Lanka is a wonderful country in every way, this is a fact. It offers a wide variety of travel for everyone, going from cultural tourism, beach holidays, wildlife and nature, adventure activities, ayurvedic and welness experiences, to water sports....and at that point is in what Euphoria Exotic Holidays can help you a lot, and specifically Ms. Sashini (the owner) who is a great professional, but she is even more a marvellous person. She is really empathetic, specially with foreign customers and she also quickly captures what you want and what you expect from the trip and organise the tour to suit your needs and budget. We suggest to all who want a customised voyage to contact Euphoria. After spending 2 weeks in Sri Lanka, and meeting Sashini and her sister (who owns their spice and herbal garden 'Euphoria Spice & Herbal) for lunch, i don't feel Euphoria only as a company but as one more of my friends.

We knew before arriving in Sri Lanka that we didn't want to make the typical trip. I mean, we were not going to miss the most representative and touristic sites of the country, but also, we wanted to know the real Sri Lanka with a tailor-made tour for us. So after a few drafts, we finally found our perfect trip with 'more authentic' locations to spend time and conversations with curious and friendly local folks.

One stop from our tour which surprised us quiet a bit was a visit to a Mask Museum. We learned a lot from these hand-crafted items and discovered which the Sri Lankan masks varieties are. To sum it up, you can find different types of masks depending on the dancing rituals they are used for. Then you can distinguish the comic masks (for storytelling on Sri Lankan colonial life), the medicinal or healing masks (for exorcisom ceremonies to heal persisting illnesses), and the demons or protective masks (for pageants and processsions). Other experiences we enjoyed very much was a visit to the Sea Turtle Hatchery in Kosgoda, and visiting the Elephant Transit Home in Udawalawe.

We had the honour in observing one of the most famous Buddhist events in the world-the 'Kandy Esela Perehara' which left us speechless after witnessing a huge amount of people (young and old), and elephants on a procession full of traditional dances, music, dresses, fire and lights.

On the other hand, we almost felt as real Sri Lankans when we ate from roadside vendors many tropical seasonal fruits- fresh rambutans, mangoosteen, peanuts, bananas, king coconut and curd. We also tried to eat with our fingers the rice and curry the local way (unsuccessfully :)) and managed to learn to say greetings in Sinhala and Tamil. And we made the 'no vertical head movement' to say 'Yes' or 'May be' :). People are not wrong when they say that Sri Lanka is the country of SMILES. Before travelling i was not sure about this point, but after our trip i could ensure it is true. Almost everywhere we went to, we could find the sweet smile on the face of an unknown Sri Lankan. Ayubowan!

Eva & Lara (Germany)

I travelled with Euphoria in August 2014 together with my 16 year old daughter. It was our first trip to Sri Lanka and Euphoria helped make it an enjoyable one. Our itinerary was truly tailormade to our needs and it felt right to us. Response time was minimal and Euphoria stayed in touch throughout our trip. We toured for 10 days, got to see the main sites without feeling awfully rushed and stayed at pleasant hotels. Our driver was always friendly, willing to accommodate us and a very knowledgable guide on top. He even managed to make us feel (almost) safe in the crazy Sri Lankan traffic.

All in all, i can wholeheartedly recommend Euphoria Exotic Holidays- and will do so to family and friends.

P.S. We stopped in Euphoria Spice Garden for a cooking lessons and lunch. It was great fun and one of our best meals on the island. Don't miss out!

Marius & Andreea (Romania)

Thank you for the amazing tour we had. We had an awesome vacation with some magical experiences, and for sure we will be back. We felt extraordinary and please send our appreciation to all of your team, you guys are all wonderful people. Thanks again to Thivanka also, he is a really good person and guide. Overall Euphoria Exotic Holidays was way more than a travel agent, they were our friends. Thank you very much! See you next time!

Hyacinth Bailey & Family (UK)

This tour was an absolute joy! I enjoyed everything-everyday. It far exceeded my expectations and made my birthday extra special. I'll never forget this, it was wonderful. Our guide Sisira is the best!

Ioana & Gabriela Negulescu (Romania)

It was a great tour overall, thank you for all your efforts.

Connor & Catherine Sweeney (Northern Ireland)

Our tour was well organised and met our expectations. Sashini kept in touch with us when planning the tour and made us feel very welcome at the Euphoria Spice Garden. Our meal there was probably one of the best meals we had during our time in Sri Lanka. This is a wonderful exotic island with a such wide variety of sites to see, climates to experience, and hospitality to remember. We would highly recommend the service Euphoria Exotic provide. Our driver/guide was an excellent ambassador for Sri Lanka and drove us safely and comfortably through the demanding roads on our 15 day itinerary. (February 2015)

Karen Kang & Komal Patel (UK)

A great tour and experience with Euphoria Exotic Holidays:

  • Professional and listened to our needs, hence providing a suitable itinerary
  • Smooth tour
  • Great tour guide, always punctual, professional, trustworthy, and clean car
  • We felt very safe (as two women travelling)
  • Fantastic cooking experience (and eating- the best in Sri Lanka)

I personally have been fortunate to travel to many countries in the world and i am reluctant to use tour companies. However, i can honestly recommend Euphoria. I will come back to Sri Lanka with my family and will definitely use your service again.

Ann, Kate, & Jenny Honeybill (UK)

We chose Euphoria Exotic Holidays on the recommendation of a client who travelled with them in November 2014. From the very first email, everything was handled very efficiently and all questions answered promptly. The itinerary was tailored so that we had enough time to relax in between trips- but we were still able to visit all the highlights of Sri Lanka. Our tour guide (Lakvijitha) looked after us so well and we looked forward to seeing his friendly smile each morning. His knowledge of the places we visited was extensive, and if he couldn't answer a question he researched it and gave us an answer the following day. We felt totally safe travelling with our guide, and it was wonderful to not have to worry about where to go and how to get there.

Thank you so much for making this a fantastic and truly memorable holiday!

Amanda, Simon, & Ethan Hayes (UK)

We had a wonderful two weeks in Sri Lanka, one week of which we spent with Sisira our local guide/driver organised by Euphoria. Sisira was fantastic with our two year old son, full of local knowledge, and an excellent driver. Sashini from Euphoria was very helpful in organising our trip from the destinations to the hotels and the fact that she was happy to organise only half of it was a bonus. We would definitely use this company again.

Dr. Monica, Ivor, & Darko (Italy)

The tour was wonderful! The driver/guide was like a close friend for us. He explained us all the time nice and rare and interesting knowledge about temples and local culture. He was also really respectful and reserved. The day we met Sashini and her team in the spice garden was so much fun. We felt like we were at home, and Sashini is a lovely person. The meal we had was one of the best meals we had in our tour in Sri Lanka. The nature and the ancient culture are amazing. We will not forget it forever!!

Our tour with Euphoria was planned to perfection from the moment we arrived in Sri Lanka to the moment we had to say good bye to our lovely driver and guide, Sisira. Corresponding with Sashini was a dream as it was her helpfulness and professionalism, together with the competitive pricing, that made us decide to choose Euphoria from the dozens of operators available. Nothing was too much trouble for Sashini and she was happy to endlessly tweak the itinerary as i constantly changed my mind about what we wanted to do. Sisira was always friendly, smart and punctual and we toured the island with him for a week (in a very clean, air conditioned Toyota mini van which was a great size for our family of five plus our excessive luggage) visiting a whole range of places from Anuradhapura in the north to Yala in the south. Sisira taught us the history of the places we visited and also shared Sri Lanka customs and traditions. Sisira was always happy to make unscheduled stops for us to take photos or to buy souvenirs (both of which we did on a regualr basis!). We also met Sashini, and her equally lovely sister, at the Euphoria Spice Garden where we were showered with special touches: Jasmine garlands for my husband and myself as we were celebrating our anniversary, a gift for our daughter's 18th birthday and yet another gift for the family- so generous and unexpected. We all enjoyed the cooking lesson at Euphoria but perhaps we enjoyed eating the food even more! So a big thank you to all at Euphoria for making our holiday so memorable- we look forward to seeing you again if we're lucky enough to visit Sri Lanka in the future.
