During the morning of Day three, you will get the chance to visit the Mihintale Buddhist Temple where you will find more ruins amongst the first Buddhist Temple in Sri Lanka.

During your climb you will see some beautiful frescos embedded in the rock and a Lion’s Gate, as the entrance to the palace.

Wonderful experience of Sri Lanka

My family and I had a fantastic two week visit with Budget Arugambay Tours. We went from Colombo to Kandy to Yala and along to Galle before returning. Our guide was perfect -so accommodating and was such fun for the children. He took time to understand what we were keen to experience – the countryside and wildlife of Sri Lanka – and took us to truely beautiful places. We always stayed in lovely, family-friendly hotels. Ansa was also very knowledgeable about the culture and history of the areas we travelled in. Highlights were seeing elephants in the river, whale watching and swimming in Mirissa and a day’s safari in Yala’s National Park. I would thoroughly recommend Budget Arugambay Tours!

Superb 14 Day Tour of Sri Lanka

My partner and I have just returned from a holiday in Sri Lanka to celebrate her 40th birthday. From the first inquiry, agreeing the itinerary and the tour itself, I cannot compliment Budget Arugambay Tours enough. Their response to every e mail was truly exceptional. I can see why they were so strongly recommend to us by friends who had used Budget Arugambay Tours earlier in the year.
Our chauffeur and guide throughout the holiday was Ishak who proved to be very knowledgeable and was dedicated to giving us the best experience possible. We had a superb holiday in a beautiful and welcoming country.
We enjoyed ourselves so much in Sri Lanka we are hoping to return again next year.

Tailored 2 week private tour for 3 couples

Much time had been spent planning the itinerary for our 2 week tour and there’s no doubt it certainly paid off. The driver and guide combination of Dilan and Faina were a well oiled team who planned and delivered on every aspect of the tour which had been agreed between our friend and Jenifer. Extra places were added and itineraries changed to accommodate landslides and pouring rain.
Both had a great sense of humor and excellent knowledge of and passion for their country. Highlights included 2 days at Mahoora tented campsite at Yala enjoying safaris as well as exploring all history that Sri Lanka has on offer, cycling visit to the markets, cooking lessons, fishing, train rides, rock climbs, caves, beaches, fishing etc. It was fun, engaging and inspiring. We would be glad to welcome Faina and Dilan into our homes and certainly recommend them to others. We started at Negombo and finished in Matara as we zigzagged our way across Sri Lanka at a pace that allowed plenty of time for thorough exploration and relaxation. Well done guys! Jan and Bob

Budget Arugambay Tours 14 day tour of Sri Lanka

Credit to Budget Arugambay Tours, who through our very competent friendly guide, Faina and excellent patient driver, Ishak, provided us with an interesting, stimulating and informative travelling opportunity .
Ishak anticipated our needs and worked obligingly to fulfill them, initially by meeting us at the airport very late in the evening, followed by dealing easily with every eventuality over the next 14 days.
Ishak showed initiative and organised the days travel in a logical order, including anticipating when we would arrive at a venue, so that we never waited for the site guide or our returning bus, on any occasion. Faina and Ansa worked with our total group really well, especially in relation to meals and drinks and the extra activities/ visits that we made.
Both our guide and driver provided us with information about Sri Lanka and answered our questions.
Ishak payed attention to our personal safety requirements, not only with regards to traffic but also in assisting us up and down steps and on inclines, his care was much appreciated
Faina and Ishak (guide and driver) worked extremely well as a team, both professional in their areas of expertise.
We were very pleased with the comfortable accommodation provided and Jothi, tour consultant, who assisted us with the tour program, itinerary and all bookings.

Cultural tour personalized

We had a great time touring the cultural triangle with our guide Abdull. Budget Arugambay Tours was able to tailor our tour itinerary in a personalized way to meet our needs and requests. We traveled with our baby and felt well taken care of knowing we could adjust plans and be flexible if needed. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable about Sri Lanka and we learned a great amount of information in the car rides and at the sights. He was very caring, making sure we did everything we wanted to do and ensuring that we had a great time exploring. We had an amazing experience with Budget Arugambay Tours and our guide Abdull. We highly reccomemd Budget Arugambay Tours.

12 Day tour of Sri Lanka

Myself and two girlfriends spent a fabulous nearly two weeks touring with Ansa from Budget Arugambay Tours in mid September. The accommodation was top class throughout the buffet breakfasts and dinners were amazing – a highlight for me being a separate room at some for desserts – heaven. So despite a bit of walking and physical activity on the tour a loss of weight was not likely. Ansa was a great guide filling us in on history along the way, making sure we had what we needed and sharing a laugh along the way. Sadly our train adventures were curtailed by breakdowns and strikes – however we had the luxury of calling on Ansa when we were stranded.
Ella was a highlight as well as the beach near Galle. No hesitation in recommending Budget Arugambay Tours – fabulous throughout the booking process of which there was a lot of to and fro-ing. Delivered everything promised and more and good value for money.

Customized Tour done to Perfection by Budget Arugambay Tours

Fantastic customized tour and well put together by Budget Arugambay Tours! They understood our needs and requirements and it was perfect! Customized trip began in Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Hikkaduwa, Arugambay and Galle. Our guide for the 14 days was Ansa and he was amazing – he made our trip. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about Sri Lanka’s history and the car journeys were very entertaining! He was very accommodating and a great asset to Budget Arugambay Tours. I would definitely recommend Budget Arugambay Tours to anyone visiting, more so Ansa as a tour guide who went above any beyond to ensure we had a great trip!

Budget Arugambay Tour

Have just spent 2 weeks traveling Sri Lanka. Budget Arugambay Tour fantastic. Simply tell them what you want and they will customize a trip for you. And our guide Abdull was absolutely brilliant.
Friendly,knowledgeable and easy to understand. Has a clean modern car and was a safe driver.
Took us everywhere we wanted to go and gave us good ideas and tips. Nothing a problem for him. He always seemed to get the front of queues, best seats and safari guides for us too. Highly recommended.

Beautiful holiday with an amazing guide!

We booked a trip for 14 days in Sri Lanka. We got to see various beautiful places and were able to do a lot of activities in a relative short period of time. But all of this wouldn’t be able without our wonderful guide Ansa. He has been very kind, knew a lot about the country and was very flexible. In some cases we wanted to avoid the typically touristy places and Ansa was very open to adjust to our wishes and had some good alternatives. I would highly recommend Ansa as a guide. He gave us an memorable holiday!
