My wife and I spent a wonderful six days on tour across Sri Lanka with Dami (Daminda Bandara). I think we drove a little under 700 miles. Everything went very well: we saw lots of magical sites, ate delicious food, and engaged in exciting activities. The tour was very well planned.

Dami was a fantastic tour guide and driver. He is outgoing and friendly, and a very enjoyable travel companion. A proud Sri Lankan, Dami provided us a good history of his native country and of the various sites we visited including Sigiriya Rock, various temples, and a game drive. He is also an expert on native birds and could identify even the smallest birds from a distance. Impressive!

Throughout our tour Dami was an attentive guide and a good listener. On his advice we switched things up on the tour agenda so that we could climb Sigiriya in the cooler morning rather than the heat of the day. Dami learned we liked various foods, e.g., beetroot and chocolate, and he made sure we got to try some Sri Lankan beetroot curry and chocolate. Dami also pulled over on our drive to show us various sites and locals at work. For example, we stopped to see how coconut oil is made.

During our climb and descent of Sigiriya Rock Dami was very helpful to my wife who was leery of the uneven and gravel-covered steps.

Dami ensured we were well fed with high-quality food throughout the trip. All the lunch sites at which we stopped were delicious. One lunch might well be the best meal we will have had this year, at the Old Palm House in Galle.

Importantly, Dami is a careful driver and ensured that we were safe throughout the trip.

Overall, we give Dami the highest rating and would whole heartedly recommend him to others as a top-notch tour guide.

A trip to remember covering all the highlights of culture and natural beauty Sri Lanka has to offer . We managed to cram two weeks worth of sightseeing into 10 days with the help of Rozannes planning and our wonderful driver Aruna . There was plenty to do and see for an active group of four with plenty of time for relaxation in between .

All of our accommodations were stunning and incredibly hospitable.

First and foremost, we are a returning kimkim customers, done about 3-5 trips with them. The local specialist delivered a terrible experience after paying a large amount of 1000's of dollars for this trip. This agency cant seem to retain employees as they seem to leave quick. The local specialist who built our tour itinerary left the company leaving it a rookie, who consistently kept on debating that it is all our fault (customer). We also felt, none of this local tour specialists themselves ever toured/traveled within Sri Lanka, thereby creating a paper itinerary with no actual experience of visiting the locations they are proposing nor seem to understand how long it takes to go from one location to another. This led us to change in itinerary in the last minute as the proposed paper itinerary led to situation where we would not have had the opportunity to see and experience the location they proposed we would spend 2 hours. Also they committed to delivering a 4 star hotels for the payment made, to a surprise we ended booking us at 3 star experience at a tented camp. This tented camp calls itself resort and spa, actually there is no spa. Kimkim operator suggested I schedule it with neighboring hotel for the spa experience. They absolutely have no clue what they are proposing, so beware what ever itinerary they propose to examine it multiple times, read the fine print. They also ended up booking a train journey on a 3rd class compartment after paying large sums of dollars. We strongly feel like bait and switch scheme here. All we received was a sympathy call from a kimkim customer service as our 2 voicemail left to our kimkim contact went not answered to return the call. We cannot believe kimkim has this kind of poor performing local tour operators. Another learning experience is just because we pay what they ask expecting them to deliver a stellar experience is not true. In summary both kimkim & the local operator delivered a 1 star experience. Only saving grace and shining star is the driver - Pathum, who went way beyond to make us happy. Rest of the staff, no care attitude and cannot be trusted.

Hi Ravi,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent holiday in Sri Lanka. We genuinely appreciate your honest input, and I want to extend my sincerest apologies for any aspects of your trip that did not meet your expectations.

I understand that certain aspects of your experience were felt as lacking or insufficient to you, and I assure you that your comments have been thoroughly reviewed with our team. Your insights are invaluable as we continuously strive to enhance our services and ensure every traveler has a seamless and enjoyable journey with us.

Following an in -depth conversation with my team, I would like to communicate the following information.

• We acknowledge the challenge of involving two consultants in the holiday planning process. However, based on my understanding, both Hazan and Shehara have been instrumental in facilitating the planning and finalization of your holiday.

• Rozanne, your third and last consultant, contacted you only towards the conclusion when you expressed a desire to include the Pekoe trail in your holiday. According to the exchanged messages, she also assisted you and furnished the requisite information.

• Prior to the commencement of your tour, Rozanne provided you with the mobile numbers of both herself and our Operations Manager, ensuring you have access to them in case of any emergencies. They are consistently available at all times.

• Messages via the platform could experience delays and this was the reason to share their mobile numbers with you.

• Unfortunately, the initial delays in communication occurred as you contacted our team on the platform. Which later changed as our team contacted you directly on your mobile and to my understanding, communication thereafter was quick and efficient.

• When Shehara initially finalized the trip plan, the road and weather conditions were notably different. Other guests with similar schedules managed to experience all the planned activities. However, upon your feedback that it might be overwhelming for you in a single day, our team promptly arranged for a later train, ensuring you had sufficient time to enjoy all the included experiences.

• Following the confirmation of the later train, our team communicated with your guide to ensure a relaxed pace and avoid any sense of haste. The day's itinerary was henceforth carefully organized to ensure your timely arrival for the afternoon train to Ella.

• As far as I comprehend, the sole issue encountered was the booking of tickets in a 3rd class carriage instead of the promised 2nd class. This is entirely attributed to a miscommunication between the service provider and our team. We sincerely apologize for this oversight.

• To address the aforementioned mistake on our part and as a goodwill gesture, we extend an offer for a complimentary dinner and a complimentary massage during your stay at the 98 Acres Resort & Spa

• I'd like to highlight that, by Sri Lankan regulations, we are only permitted to secure reserved seats for a particular train journey 30 days before the ticket date. Cost is not a concern for us, and we are open to purchasing tickets in any class. However, as mentioned earlier, we cannot assure the specific carriage type and train time until the tickets are procured. Owing to the huge demand for tickets for the hill country journey vs the number of very limited seats in carriage and class plays an integral part of us trying to secure it well in advance for our guests.

• Another issue that surfaced was the temporary closure of the spa at Flameback Eco Lodge. Regrettably, this circumstance is beyond our control. Upon investigation, it was revealed that the two spa attendants had fallen ill, and prioritizing the safety of the guests, the decision was made to close it for a few days. This situation was unforeseen and was not the case when Shehara recommended the property to you.

• Throughout your stay, our Operations Manager maintained regular contact with you, ensuring that everything was in order. According to the screenshots we received from him, you had affirmed on multiple occasions that everything was satisfactory.

• In retrospect, I acknowledge that the holiday could have been better organized, and I extend my sincere apologies to you and your wife for any inconvenience caused. This falls short of the service standard we typically aim to provide, and your feedback will guide us in making improvements for the future.

We genuinely value your feedback and want to assure you that your concerns will be shared with our team for continuous improvement. We are committed to providing the exceptional service that our clients deserve.
If there are any further details or concerns, you'd like to discuss, please feel free to reach out. We appreciate your understanding and the opportunity to make amends.

Wishing you and your wife all the best, and we hope to have the chance to welcome you back for a more seamless and enjoyable experience in the future.
