Guide Bio

Hello,

My name is Raja, and I have been a tour guide since 2001. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, and I would love the opportunity to help you connect to all it has to offer. Whether you are an individual, family, or group, I would be happy to help you discover the Sri Lanka that I know and love.

Whether you are looking to do some sightseeing, explore nature and embrace the culture, or are on the hunt for adventure, I can help you plan the ideal itinerary which reflects your personal preferences. I would also love to answer any other questions which could help create a more memorable trip. As a local resident, I can help you find the best places to eat, the best places to sleep, and the easiest ways to get around. Part of being a guide means making you feel like you know the region as well as I do!

I look forward to getting to know you, and sharing stories!

    Hi,
    Just few days back we have returned from Sri Lanka Tours. Mr. Raja was our driver for the entire trip. He is reliable person to travel with. He is very cooperative and tourist friendly minded person, taken care of us very nicely. He was always on time while touring entire Sri Lanka. I contacted him after reading Mr. Raja’s feedback on tripadvisor. I am happy to say, we have also experienced the same. I would surely recommend him.
    Rgds,
    PB.

    Hello, My family and I just got back from 2 weeks in srilanka. We have been in Negombo, Annura, kandy polonuawa, passikudah, ella, yala park, Bentota. We have organized the trip and been with Raja, prenamed by us “The King of the Road”. He is an excellent driver, knows where to buy things with good prices. I you need more information with intinery and hotels, send me a private message. I highly recommend Raja

    Anyone who is thinking of visiting Sri Lanka should go with this company. From the moment we booked our minds were at ease as Raja answered every question promptly and with a good attitude. Upon arrival, collection at the airport was timely, and we were taken to our first stop, where we met Nirosh and Abtullah, who were our tour guides for the two weeks.
    We would not hesitate to recommend these tour guides, as they were two absolute gentlemen. They went above and beyond to accommodate everyone in the group (a group of 9!) which was difficult for them in a big group with people wanting to experience different aspects of the country and culture. But nobody was left disappointed! We always felt safe with them and had good fun along the way. They really made our trip the best it could possibly have been!
    Additionally, transport provided was more than comfortable, and we found the accommodation to always be clean, safe, and up to standard.
    From a personal point of view, and on behalf of the group I travelled with, I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone, big groups and small groups. They are accommodating, friendly, and so willing to help with everything you need on your trip! Would book with them again in a heartbeat.

    Myself and two friends booked a tour guide for our trip to Sri Lanka. Dinase, our driver was a fantastic guide. He was so accommodating to all of our needs and taught us so much about the country. He was very friendly, fun and informative and our car was spacious and comfortable! I would definitely recommend Indigo Ocean travels to anyone looking for a good tour guide and stress-free transport around Sri Lanka!

    We (my girlfriend and I) spent one week with Raja as our driver mid September 2014 in Sri Lanka. Accomodation was organized on our own. I contacted him only a few days before our arrival and he was luckily still available.
    After the first email he replied within one day. Our plan was a tour through south west of Sri Lanka without a fixed route, only some places we wanted to see and the drop off fixed. Raja was supporting us with recommendations in advance as well as during the trip.
    Pick up at the airport was working great, he was already waiting at arrivals. Raja assisted us with the communication as well as for purchasing souvenirs etc. However, he was never pushing us to visit any particular place and left us in general a lot space. Raja was only supporting on request. We felt all the time comfortable and safe with him. His language skills are very good & we had no trouble communicating throughout the trip. We spoke English with him but he is also speaking four other languages.
    As a driver he was very reliable and picked us up always on time. Also traffic in Sri Lanka can be quite chaotic Raja was having overview and was driving defensive, he went slow and didn’t take any risks..
    Also for accommodation he was having many recommendations. However, we preferred to organize this on our own since our preferances were more on Guesthouses than Hotels.
    About the car, it is a Nissan Sunny with AC which is very clean, comfortable and reliable. It was working fine also on the steep and curvy way to Horton Plains.
    Long story short, I can recommend Raja without any hesitation

    Our family have just spent 2 weeks in Sri Lanka with Indigo Ocean Travels with Raja as our tour guide. From the moment we contacted him we felt at ease, he replied quickly to our enquires and soon had our holiday planned.

    Raja picked us up from the airport in his transport which had ample space and always spotlessly clean. Every day Raja was waiting for us his English was great and he was organised full of knowledge and very experienced and helpful guide.

    We were very relaxed around Raja and he was great with the children even though he was with us for the 2 weeks he was never intrusive but there for any help we needed. Our accommodation was wonderful ideally located with great views get a perfect sample of Sri Lanka.

    We had a truly memorable holiday and would not hesitate to recommend.
