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

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 .
Overall we had a great experience with Nuwan . He also organized travel & Accommodation for our other daughter who was scuba diving in Trincomalee & wanted to visit Minneriya +Lion Rock at the completion of her week there .
So a Huge thank you Nuwan we truly appreciate your help fun and knowledge we will definitely recommend you to our friends family who wish to come to sri lanka

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 was recommended to us by my brother in Dubai and thank goodness we chose him! He has been absolutely brilliant. We had a very tight itinerary, seeing a lot of Sri Lanka in a week, and he helped us to do that perfectly. He managed our time so that we saw as much as possible as well as suggesting extra sights and activities we had not thought of, always making sure we were happy.
We loved Sri Lanka and the hospitality and friendliness of its people, and Nuwan’s knowledge of Sri Lanka and indeed other parts of the world is quite astounding. He has done everything possible to give us the best holiday we could have had. From our very first contact with him by email to him finally dropping us off at the airport for our journey home he has been great, totally trustworthy and fun to be with.
Nuwan is an excellent and very safe driver, an extremely knowledgeable guide and is always smiling! We will be recommending him to all our friends and wish him all the best.
Thank you Nuwan!

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 .

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.

Нуван был потрясающим водителем во время нашего путешествия по Шри Ланке, он показал нам интересные места в Канди, Нуварельи и Негомбо. Детям также было вечелов его компании. Мы рекомендуем Нувана для семейных путешествий – он надежный и безпасный водитель и гид.
The trip to sri lanka has really been remarkable . just over two weeks with Nuwan we enjoy every minute of it. we enjoy the natural beauty of sri lanka! The 14 days felt like it went by in a Flash !

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.

Meinungen über Sri Lanka
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!
