Compared JF Tours rates with a few other operators for our trip in Dec2021 and they came out the most cost effective. Their rep Katelen Fernando was very responsive on mails and WhatsApp.

However I would like to mention our driver/guide for our 8 day trip - Jeewa. He was the best and took real good care of us. From making sure we were well informed of things happening in our area, to always being on time and going the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable. I highly recommend you request for him on your next trip to Sri Lanka.

‪ ‪This is the third time we booked with JF Tours. ‬
Again we had another holiday of a lifetime in Sri Lanka.
Jeewa the one and only guide/driver is phenomenal! Not only is he happy and extremely attentive - his knowledge of the country is simply amazing from the cultural history, to fascinating botanical/wildlife facts, navigating us around the country along steep mountain passes and coastal roads. He’s knowledg about removing bloodsucking leeches came in handy during the unforgettable hike in the mountains after heavy rain 😎

Jeewa knows what we like and makes stopps at places of interest along the way, he showed us many things that we felt were quite unique.

Very big thanks to Katlene how put together an excellent and realistic schedule to suit our requirements with less than a weeks notice.

Katlene responded very quickly to our mails and made our requested changes quick and smooth. Every hotel we stayed at was comfortable and most were very luxurious. During the trip Katelen checked and asked so everything was going well. SUPER SERVICE.

To sum it up when,not if you’re going to Sri Lanka, JF Tours should be your first choice if you want a unique holiday planned by a real professional. So you can relax and just enjoy your vacation. You should ask for Jeewa as guide and driver, because he is just the best ❤️ We would choose JF Tours any time when we return to Sri Lanka and we happily recommend to any of our friends and family.

We have recently returned to the UK from an 'out of this world, holiday of a lifetime' in Sri Lanka. Our Guide/Driver Jeewa was phenomenal! Not only was he upbeat, happy and extremely attentive - his knowledge of the country was simply amazing from the cultural history, to fascinating botanical/wildlife facts, navigating us around the country along steep mountain passes and coastal roads, stopping at places of interest along the way. We are hugely appreciative to JF Tours for their expertise in creating the perfect itinerary for us and for placing us in the very capable care of Jeewa. We highly recommend this tour company - definitely 5* service!

This is my second time with JF tours and it just keeps getting better. We saw temples, forts, elephants, tea plantations and trains....and not to be forgotten is the beach! The service and the flexibility provided by JF tours, particularly Jeewa and Katelen, was outstanding. The highlight was the train and the nine arches bridge! Tiny turtles and ten ton whales. We’re coming back!

Had a great time thanks to JF Tours. Katelan put together an excellent and realistic schedule to suit our requirements. Responded to our mails very quickly. Mihiran who doubled as a driver and guide did a great job. Always ontime and his personal touch added flavour to the whole trip.

We spent a 16 days with a group of 6: 3 couples. It included several stops in a variety of cities, villages and wildlife areas and was put together by Katalene. She did a great job of including interesting safaries, hikes, cultural experiences. We marvelled that every hotel we stayed at was comfortable and most were very luxurious - melting away any tiredness from our day activities. Throughout the trip Jeewa our guide extraordinare & driver made us fall in love with Sri Lanka and showed us many things that we felt were unique. In any adventure there are things that go a bit wrong. And small things did BUT Jeewa quickly resolved any issues (none related to JF Tours or Jeewa) in the kindest of manners and was truly concerned in making our trip absolutely wonderful. He is the guide and driver I would choose when we return to Sri Lanka and I would happily recommend him to any of my friends and family. My husband and I talked about this being the best trip we've had in a long time. Quite a compliment because we have travelled all over the world.

This is the second time we booked with JF Tours. Milanka was very helpful and made a perfect plan of our two week trip.
We booked Jeewa as our guide and driver this year too, he is simply the best. Jeewa is very professional and his knowledge about the historical, geographical, botanical and cultural aspects of Sri-Lanka were interesting and made our trip even better. He also is a calm and safe driver.
With a guide/driver you’ll get to see places and experience things that are hard to discover by your own as a first time visitor plus you will get some valuable information about the Sri Lankan culture, food etc.

We really recommend JF Tours!

Senal helped design a 7-day itinerary according to our interests and was always prompt in responding. Thilanka was our assigned driver and got us around the island safely. He also gave us good suggestions on what to add-on to make our itinerary smooth-sailing and enjoyable. He looked after us well throughout.

We put together the itinerary ourselves for 9 days but our driver Ajith has been adding a lot of interesting sights that were on the way or at any of the destinations. He provided us with a lot of insights about the country, animals, nature in general, history and other relevant things. Was really impressed what he know. He always guided us into the right direction so our trip was pretty smooth. He was very reliable, allways in time and very polite. Would book him again when we come back and have recommended JF Tours to friends already.

I had the pleasure of engaging Thushara to arrange my tour around Sri Lanka. Obviously the sights were amazing but what made the trip extra special was the services of my driver, Shantha. By being so efficient and dedicated, he ensured that my friend and I could enjoy every minute. I recommend Thushara and Shantha unreservedly to anyone that appreciates honest, reliable and trustworthy advice and tourist services.
