Excelent tour! The idea of a homestay tour is genius! Totally affordable, we got a chance to experience “real Sri Lanka”, interacting with people in the places we stayed in, sometimes cooking along, playing with the children, talking to everyone. It is relaxing to know that food, travel, activities, overnight stay, are all paid for and taken care of. Plus the friendship we received from Yusuf, our guide, and Namal, our driver! They did everything that was necesary to provide the services agreed upon, and also to arrange extras activities we were interested in, like Balloon flying, snorkeling, whale watching! It was just perfect, and we will always be thankful to them and to every simple person we met in Sri Lanka… A disclaimer, though: This tour is for people who do not except high level services, because meals are usually served at homes or in family restaurants. Even though some of the houses we stayed in had rooms nicer than 4 star hotels!
Great family trip
Yusuf & our driver Namal gave us a lovely tour of Sri Lanka. With Eurolanka you get to see the country through the eyes of a local. We met so many lovely people running small guesthouses. We really felt made welcome.
Yusuf has great ideas for making your stay special. One of our highlights was cooking with his lovely wife.
Thansk to Eurolanka to organising a very individual tour for me. Nice little bungalows or appartments were chosen as i wished. The driver dorv every safe in the crazy Sri Lankan traffic and all was set up to meet my requirements.
Staying in Galle with Yusuf and seeing all the beautiful places (tee plantation, river safari, turtle retreat, shopping areas and all the interesting temples, mosuqes and churches) made me feel very welcomed in this nice city.
I can highly recommend Yusuf and his team for the indidvidual Sri Lankan travel experience and especially the foody experience. The home made food was like heaven….
Thanks for a winderful time – i will definitely come back!
There is no doubt in my mind that if you are looking for a guide who keeps you safe and gives you an authentic experience, you have found the right guide (Yusef) at EuroLanka Holidays. He goes out of his way to accommodate you and is always watching your back to make sure you are not getting caught in tourist traps. If you want an authentic experience, you will 100% have it and will be in safe hands. Make sure to voice what you want your tour to be like (i.e,.what you want to do/see) and you will have the experience of a lifetime.
We had been to Galle through EuroLanka Holidays one of the sustainable service providers in the country. We were amazed by the service they provided, they are mostly in to Authentic, Offthe beaten & Organic features in their operations. If someone wanna expereaince real Sri Lanka, i would inhesitantly recommend EuroLanka. Yusuf, the operator based in Galle is a very honest & kind hearted person who would go any extra miles to make your holiday a precious one. Try EuroLanka!! you would never regret.
We had a wonderful, hassle free holiday experience.Yusuf our tour operator took care of all our travel needs during the Holiday.We learned a lot of new details about Sri Lanka like best places to shop,dine and relax.Highly Recommend.
Yusuf with Eurolanka was super helpful and friendly. He arranged trips for us and gave the best advice throughout our travels. We were so glad he was working for us. Thank you!
Me and my husband decided to visit Sri Lanka so I did my own research and found the places we wanted to visit. I also checked social media for things to do while in Sri Lanka and I found an account on Facebook run by Yusuf who happened to be the tour operator for Euro Lanka Holidays. I asked Yusuf questions about Sri Lanka and he was happy to help. Yusuf also suggested places that we should visit. Although we didn’t book the tour from Euro Lanka Holidays, the help and advice that Yusuf shared with us was invaluable. Thank you for everything.
We booked our first holidays in Sri Lanka through EuroLanka Holidays and travelled there in July 2016 for two weeks traveling the South of Sri Lanka.
Yusuf was really helpful in making sure all our wishes were accommodated in the itinerary, with all our special requests!
We travelled with two small children, so did not want to be part of a standard tour.
At the same time, we wanted to see a few places and travel around the country, which really needs some planning if you go with small kids who don’t want to sit in the car for hours!
Also during the tour Yusuf was always there to help us, arrange last minute changes, and make sure we were always happy!
It was a great trip, and I can only recommend EuroLanka to everyone who is looking for a great holiday in Sri Lanka.
Also Yusuf’s previous experience, working for a German company in Dubai, really helped, as he understands cultures outside of Sri Lanka and knows what the tourists expect.
You can ask him for our itinerary – we did a mix of adventure, jungle, beach, nature, luxury… would go again anytime!
Everything you needed in a cultural, exciting and in depth experience of Sri Lanka!
The team at Euro Lanka led by Yusuf is nothing short of exceptional. They go above and beyond to tailor the trip how you would like it but at no point does that detract away from the essence of traditional Sri Lanka. Yusuf started by customising our trip to suit our needs which many other tour companies don’t do. Then once there the service was impeccable, with local insights, stops and learnings from not only Yusuf himself, but his family, driver Namal and the locals enlisted to help show us the best possible time in Sri Lanka. We could not fault the trip at any point and if we needed something more or else, Yusuf would make it happen so we could enjoy the entire trip with a care free experience. Highly recommend Euro Lanka as you get a wholesome traditional and unbelievable experience with Yusuf and the team. Thank you!
Our 10 day trip with EuroLanka was one to remember.
Yusuf and his team were able to tailor our holiday to meet our needs and our budget.
EuroLanka holidays offers something deeper than the bigger tour operators. We were able to go off to beaten track and experience the real Sri Lanka. Accomodation was predominantly homestays which made the experience even richer. Amongst many other highlights, one that stands out in particular was when we were in transit between towns, he introduced us to a small fishing village where we came across a small group of school children who had not encountered foreigners before. First there were 3, then 10, then 20 and before we knew it there were 30 adorning school children following us around the village in awe of the 2 foreigners they’d never seen before.
This, as well as the time we spent with his family, are memories we will cherish forever.
There are no set rules on the tour. Whatever you want to see or do, Yusuf can make it happen. The epitome of a great man living in a beautiful country – this is reflected 100% through the EuroLanka tour.
