Nuwan is an amazing guide! Had a sign waiting for us at the airport and picked us up in his clean air conditioned van. He has a lot of knowledge about Sri Lanka and can customize your trip according to your needs. He has great English skills and can suggest places to see and stay according to your budget. He is great with children and is easy to talk to. If you ever plan to visit Sri Lanka please use Nuwan as you will be in good hands! Thanks for the wonderful trip!
As a first time visit to Sri Lanka, It was an excellent idea to choose an internal travel agency, as it was difficult to manage personally or through another external travel agency. My choice for choosing “Nature Paradise Travels” travel agency was proposed by a good friend who enjoyed the program and recommended the company for me and my husband.
When we dealt with the company’s operator who made good effort to prepare a good offer for 10N/ 11D, with a reasonable price for 4* and 3* accommodation,
The tour guide was with us since our arrival to Colombo air port till our departure to the same air port. He was very helpful in providing advises and in selecting the reputable places to visit, also he was patient when we asked him to return to another herbal gardens, tea gardens, gem stones showrooms, and batik shops.
We enjoyed the whole trip as it included variety of activities and atmosphere and sight seeing. We enjoyed hiking (in Sigirya Lion Rock, Little adam’s peek, Horton place National Park), salaries (in Minneriya and Yala National Parks), whale watching and swimming (in Merissa), Turtle watching (in Madu River).
Sir Lanka is a very clean country compared to other countries with higher economy, also its atmosphere was healthy and having several fragrances (either tea, coconut, other herbs), however the humidity was high but it was tolerable as the plants absorbed most of moist weather.
We highly recommend “Nature Paradise Travels” as a successful best local travel agency.
We have had a fantastic time with Nuwan ! He is an excellent guide and is extremely friendly and we had 5days with Nuwan which included white water rafting , 2 Safari’s , visiting sigiriya + visiting Ella + Climbing Little Adam’s peek – he drove us to each place and also arranged train tickets for us. We have had such good time and highly recommend Nuwan if you are coming to sri lanka ! we consider him a good friend !
Thanks Nuwan you have made this trip amazing
lot of love

Superbe sejour au Sri Lanka !
Nous avons trouve les coordonnees de Nuwan sur Internet et en voyant tous les bons commentaires nous n’avons pas hesite a le contacter. Il nous a chaleureusement acceuilli a l’aeroport pour directement prendre la route vers Negombo. Après une courte nuit nous sommes partis en direction du parc national de Wilpattu ou une jeep nous attendait. S’en sont suivis les excursions avec les dauphins, les tortues, un autre safari, le snorkeling sur Pigeon Island, et bien d’autres merveilleuses choses. Les trois semaines de voyage se sont dans l’ensemble bien passees avec Nuwan. Nous sommes trois amis de 25 ans et nous avons tous passé un tres bon sejour riche en decouverte et activites grace a Nuwan. Merci beaucoup a lui et n’hesitez pas a votre tour.

Frome the time Nuwan collected us from Colombo airport he had us entertained with his humour . He was knowledgeable about all aspects of sri lanka . we experienced truly amazing sights many not mentioned in tour books . He accompanied us to all sites ,offering information along the way . we experienced Minneriya National park ,observing Over 200 Wild elephants ,Monkeys ,jackals and numerous birds . The climb up lion rock was rewashed with magnificent view as was the like hike in Horton Plains National Park . Nuwan also Organized white water rafting for us (not in our original programme) came with us (He is a good paddler !!!) we went to traditional sri lanka dance performance in kandy . unfortunately we didn’t see leopard in yala national park , but good great spotted deer & bear . There are many other sites we visited .

Nuwan, le chauffeur-guide que nous ne pouvons que recommander !
Nuwan nous avait ete recommande par des amis qui avaient fait un tour avec lui en juillet dernier avec leurs enfants. Nous avons fait un tour de deux semaines avec lui en famille avec nos 3 enfants. Nuwan est non seulement un bon et prudent chauffeur dans une voiture spacieuse et confortable, mais egalement un tres bon guide qui nous a ete d’une aide precieuse pendant notre periple. Il a reserve des billets de train pour nous (et nous a retrouves a la gare après a Ella), organise les safaris et nous a trouve des hotels sympas lorsque nous en avons eu besoin. Il est egalement tres fort pour debusquer les animaux et connais bien les oiseaux. Nous le recommandons donc egalement pour toutes ces raisons, sans oublier de mentionner qu’il est sympa et souriant.
Nous avons passé un incroyable sejour a Sri Lanka. Nuwan a beaucoup contribute a la reussite de ce sejour en famille. Il a toujours ete disponible et a toujours cherche a nous faciliter les choses. Il nous a fait decouvrir de nombreuses facettes de son beau pays. Grace a lui notre programme a ete bien plus sympa que prevu.
Severine et Eric (les parents)
Nous avons trouve que tu etais super. Nous avons tous trouve que les vacances au Sri Lanka etaient une reussite.
Marie (11 ans)
Le Sri Lanka est beau. Nuwan est le plus fort pour trouver les animaux. Il nous a coupe des mangues.
Swann (9 ans) Camille (8 ans) et Lucie (5 ans)
Superbe sejour au Sri Lanka avec Nuwan.
Des amis nous ont recommande les services du chauffeur Nuwan et nous avons ete ravis d avoir suivi leur conseil. Nuwan est venu nous chercher a 1h du matin a l’aeroport (bien que notre vol etait en retard il nous attendait avec le sourire). Il nous a ensuite emmene dans notre hotel a Negombo pour une courte nuit car nous voulions prendre la route pour Ella des le lendemain. En chemin ce dernier n’a pas manqués de nous montrer divers endroits que nous n’aurions pas trouve par nous meme. A Ella, il nous a guide a travers diverses randonnees et visites (plantation/usines de the, chutes d’eau, panoramas,…). Nous avons ensuite pris la route pour Tangalle durant laquelle, selon ses cnseils, nous avons pu faire un tres beau safari et admirer la faune du parc national Udawalawa. Apres ce farniente sur les plages desertes de Tangalle il nous a conduit a Mirissa, d’ou il nous recommande les plages adaptees au surf, arrange une location de scooter pour explorer les environs, et organise une exploration pour admirer les baleines (6 baleines bleues apercues et une dizaine de dauphins). Il nous a egalement organise une session de plongee au parc national maritime d’Hikkaduwa, puis nous a emmene a la forteresse historique de Galle ainsi qu’a la riviere Madu pour y admirer la faune de la mangrove en bateau.
Nuwan nous a ete d’une grande aide pour apprecier pleinement notre voyage et decouvrir ce magnifique pays qu’est le Sri-Lanka. Il s’est montre prudent sur la route, a l’ecoute de nos besoins et toujours de bonne humeur, nous ne pouvons que recommender ses services.
Un bon chauffeur pour visiter le sri lanka
Nous venons de passer 2 semaines et demi au sri Lanka. Nous avons passé nos vacances en famille (2 adultes et 3 enfants 18 16 et 12 ans). Nous voyageons regulierement (BALI, mexique, GRECE,…)et c’est la premiere fois que nous prenons un chauffeur. Notre sejour au sri lanka a ete formidable notamment grace a Nuwa notre chauffeur . nous avions preparer notre voyage mais on a profite des conseils de Nuwa.
Nous avons commence par Sirigya avec la visite du rocher du meme nom. Nuwa nous a fait decouvrir un autre emplacement peu connu des touristes nous permettant avec une vue splendide sur le rocher du lion. Il a ensuite organise un safari a Minniriya. Passionne par les animaux de son pays, il les repere tres rapidement contrairement aux autres jeeps croisees qui se focalisaient unqiuement sur les elephants.
Ensuite sur la cote est a Nilaveli nous voulions faire un tour de bateau dans la mangrove. Pas de problem pour Nuwa, le lendemain il a trouve un pecheur pour nous emmener, ballade suivie d un superbe repas (crabe poisson crevettes) dans la maison du pecheur.
Arrives a ella, notre hotel pourtant reserve a l avance etait complet. Heureusement que Nuwa etait la. De nombreux hotels etaient complets et il a reussi a trouver 2 chambres dans un hotel confortable et dans notre budget.
Diection Yalla, second safari organise par Nuwa. Moins d elephants qu a Minniriya mais de superbes paysages.
L avant-dernier jour il nous a offert (!!) un tour en bateau sur une riviere (Madu River riviere au 64 iles) au nord de galle. Tres agreeable avec encore de superbes paysages.
Sans parler des commentaires sur la vie srilankaise et les degustations sur le bord de la route (noix de coco, yaourt “paysan” un regal cela nous a rappele ceux fait par nos grand-meres,…).
Sans compter quelques conseils pendant la preparation du voyage et la reservation des billets de train (Kandy Ella un conseil s arreter plutot a hatton cela raccourci le trajet de moitie 3h au lieu de 6h).
Pour finir Nuwa a ete plus qu un chauffeur presqu un guide.
Nuwan organized an excellent trip tailored to our interests in wildlife and nature . we enjoyed three safaris with elephant and leopard watching the critter is free in their natural environment ,Birds of every sort were viewed on the safaris and in our lovely garden Hotels , many with balconies .
we also enjoyed a whale viewing excursion while dolphins occasionally followed the boat. All was safe , well thought through for our a convenience and pleasure . The rooms were clean ,many with amenities not expected room Size to view from pleasant balconies .
we heartily recommend Nuwan’s tailored to your interests that also will showcase the most interesting aspects of “The Island “ Nuwan is there for you

It was amazing experience of having a tour in Sri Lanka with the Tour guides of Nuwan, Its very rare nowadays to have a tour guide whom we can trust and give his full service wherever we goes. Not only that, He was also my Photographer. On my day 1 He Pickup from the airport and it was 3 hours drive from Colombo to Sigiriya as I decided to see the amazing places on it. On my Day 2 We went to 5 different places, first at Sigiriya Rock mountain and Pidurangal mountain, Lakes, Elephant riding, Safari. Those places are quiet far but he managed the time to make it. ON my third day, We went to Temple, spice Garden , Kandy view point, Batik Factory, Tea Factories and in Ramboda Falls. On my 4th day we had rafting, boating to see the 64 Islands and saw the different kinds of Turtles. And had dinner to a Fresh seafood restaurant. It was far to reached those places but the great news are He managed the time to drive and arrived safely. I would like to recommend Nuwan to be your tour guide who wants to visit and have tour in Sri Lanka. He is a good person and taking care of his clients. And most of all you are safe of him. And He will guide you along the way and dropped you in the airport going back to your origin country.
My prayer that the Lord will continue to bless Him and his business as He has a good heart and good service to all his clients.
God Bless Sri Lanka!!!
Such a wonderful trip fillco with great memories . we bring back with us moments of joy that would of not been possible without Nuwan’s help and guidance his extensive knowledge of the country made our Holiday ever more enriching .

Stephen & Rosalya Fremder
Just got back from an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. If you haven’t been to this beautiful country I really do recommend it. The people are so chilled, in 2 visits in 5 years I only met & saw friendly loving people.
Highlight was seeing Blue Whales from only a few metres away, as well as an amazing Leopard (pic to follow).
Then we saw giant green Turtles laying their egs and then watching hundreds of hatched turtles making their way to the ocean under a full moon.
The beaches are amazing, we spent countless hours body surfing in Mirissa Beach, and then camping in Yala National Park on a 2 day safari.
Big thanks to my good friend Nuwan We luckily engaged Nuwan as our driver 5 years ago and naturally did again this time. He is the prefect guide/driver for any visit to Sri Lanka.
Thanks Nuwan for the great care & laughs, we all love you!
It was pleasure to discover sri lanka with Nuwan ! we spend very good time enjoying beautiful landscapes and visiting cultural place such as sigiriya ,kandy,yala , Nuwan was very good guide and became fast very good friend!! for our next time in sri lanka , we was going to ask Nuwan to be our Guide for sure !! Don’t forget that your welcome in London and Paris!!!
Bella (France )
Thank you very much Nuwan for this week! It has been a real pleasure to spend it with you and to discover your beautiful country! I hope you will get better soon! Rest well!
First and fore mostly my wife and I wish to sincerely thank you for making our first visit to Sri-Lanka a memorable one. You have not just been a tour guide for us , but a friend and an advisor all around and will not forget you for this . We have also been amazed on your knowledge of various cultures ,places ,roads and more about sri lanka which made us feel even more comfortable and appreciating Sri Lanka . We have been to Colombo, then Habarana, Kandy and finally Bentota. Few things always strikeout wherever you go, and they are the kindness and humbleness of Sri Lanka people and exhorting and natural beauty of the country.
My wife and I are considering to visit Sri Lanka again and we intend to bring our children along for them to learn and experience this beautiful country and its good people.
We wish you greater successes in future and we shall see you again & sincere regards.

נאטורל פרדייז – נואן הוא חברמן, נהג ומדריך נהדר!! היחידי שבאמת מכיר מקומות מיוחדים ומתאים את הטיול לאופי, לתקציב והסגנון של המטיילים. אני מכירה אותו כבר שלוש שנים והוא אף פעם לא אכזב אותנו והוא נהדר עם הילדים. יש לו קשרים טובים בפארקים ובאטרקציות השונות ובזכותו ראינו המון חיות בר, קיבלנו מדריכי שייט וגלישה טובים ועוד. הוא תמיד לקח אותנו למסעדות טובות במקומות אקזוטיים. ובתי מלון מיוחדים. מומלץ מאוד שתוכלו להעצים את חוויית הטיול בסרי לנקה!! משפחת גינוסר/ישראל Orli Ginossar Family ISRAEL

We have had a great week with Nuwan and he has been safe and reliable. We will definitely be recommending him to anyone who is wishing to waves around Sri Lanka. Thanks again Nuwan.
Nuwan’s a fantastic tour guide. He has done his very best to make us feel like ‘‘at home’’ & proudly took us around his beautiful country from the scenic mountains of Kandy to the gorgeous seaside of Bentota, the nice city of Colombo & not forgetting the little England. He has gone out of his way to take us on our very own personalized tour & point out in detail the important sites & places of interest which makes Sri Lanka so unique & causes you to fail in love with it all over again.
A smiling face to greet you everyday & a pleasing personality all the way.Nuwan has indeed redefined the term ‘‘Hospitality’’ through his actions. We are very grateful to have had him as our tour guide.
THANK YOU NUWAN, YOU WERE FABULOUS!!!

Wir fanden Sie im Internet und wir waren sehr glücklich darüber. Wir genossen sehr die Tage in Ella-Uda Walluwa, Kandy. Sie haben immer das Beste für uns organisiert. Es war unser erster Besuch in Sri Lanka und es war sehr schön, da Sie mit uns unterwegs waren. Sie begleiteten uns überall zu den schönesten Plätzen und alles war perfekt. Wir vergessen niemals diese Zeit. Vielen Dank dafür!
