“We have thought of visiting Sri Lanka for some time, and contacted Tikalanka following a friend’s recommendation. We have not been disappointed, and at every stage of the booking procedure, and the subsequent visit, have been satisfied with the service received. Many thanks to the UK part of the organization, and to everyone we encountered in Sri Lanka.”
