From misty hills to azure blue seas, Sri Lanka is known the world over as an exotic island; a little pearl in the Indian Ocean that shines as bright as the smiles of the people who live there. But what if we told you there’s much more to discover on this slice of paradise?
With a culture enriched with three thousand years of knowledge, Buddhism and many a colonial traditions, the Sri Lankan society is a potpourri of religions and races different yet similar in many so many ways.
Almost all Sri Lankans love their food spicy and their tea light; an unavoidable for a country, which produces the world’s best tea and spices. Introduced to the country in the 19th century by the British, Ceylon tea is the best tea in the world while Sri Lanka has also been known for its high quality spices since time immemorial. In Sri Lanka, cricket is the ultimate passion which draws all the Sri Lankans together irrespective of caste, race and creed.
Other than tea and cricket, gems especially blue sapphires is synonymous with Sri Lanka.
Just off the beaten track, lies ancient traditions that are juxtaposed with modernity; breathtaking scenery that must be found by the intrepid traveler and experiences that are a far cry from what you will see on Instagram. Talk to us about how you can experience a good day in Sri Lanka.
My daughter’s dream to visit Sri Lanka with her friend in late Aug, came true, when I made the arrangements with Good day Sri Lanka through Lasantha and was kept posted on all plans by Nalin. They were two young ladies who were driven around the country safely for a week and we’re well taken care of by their driver Michael from the minute they landed until they left to return home. They had a wonderful trip and came back with amazing memories and great pictures of their Sri Lankan adventure. I would like to thank Lasantha and his team for their kind care and concern and for the memorable travel experience enjoyed by my daughter and her Friend! They plan to return.
Good day Srilanka also arranged a driver cum guide and an excellent vehicle for our honeymoon trip around Sri Lanka. Chandra was an excellent driver, he suggested some additional activities that we really enjoyed, was sympathetic when we were ill and he had so many interesting stories on the history and culture of the country! We definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a similar trip.
WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
Lasantha and Nalin bring a wealth of experience and professionalism to Good Day Sri Lanka having worked in the tourism/travel industry for many years in Sri Lanka. Recently, they made our arrangements for accommodation at a tea plantation manager’s bungalow at Dickoya, Hatton, Sri Lanka. The bungalow is like being in another world. In fact it is, nestled in it’s old world splendour amidst the tea fields of Dickoya plantation. Spacious rooms and bathrooms, surrounded by antiques, wonderful attentive staff, and delicious food. The lawns and gardens at the bungalow complete the picture. For that something special, and a taste of the real Sri Lanka, give it a go!
In the meantime all the very best to you and all at Good Day Sri Lanka. God bless.

VERY GOOD TOUR AND GREAT DRIVER
Lasantha, thanks for arranging a fantastic tour for me and my wife through your new company ‘GOOD DAY Sri Lanka”, from the 25th of July until we left 2 days ago. We appreciate both accommodations in Mirissa and Waskaduwa. As requested Mirissa Hotel was calm and quiet and Waskaduwa was brilliant for sea bathing, surfing and beach partying. Breakfast and Dinner buffet had a variety of choices and food was tasty.
Our driver Michael was well versed and educated about Sri Lanka and the places we visited. He gave us a positive and wise recommendation of restaurants all over the tour. We thank him. He was a hell of a guy. I have decided whenever I go to Sri Lanka, I’ll try to have him with me. He helped us to find good shopping areas as per our requirement.
Hotel in Colombo was a great pick surrounded by a lot of restaurant options.
Thank you all again.

WE LOVE SRI LANKA
Hi Lassie and Nalin. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Sri Lanka! The accomodation you organised was wonderful and the extra touch of a cake on my birthday was appreciated. Our driver/tour guide Jagath was extremely helpful and informative, he made our trip both easier and more relaxed.
Jagath knew the best times to visit the tourist spots so we beat the crowds and his local knowledge gave us a great insight to your country and it’s customs. Thank you for making our trip such a memorable one!
I HAD A GREAT TIME!
I had a great time. I got to learn the history, experience the culture, and check out some breathtaking sights. Wish I had more time to experience a lot more.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS HOSPITALITY
I wanted to write to you to thank you, Lasantha and Nalin, for arranging such an incredible trip. You both were excellent and proactive in planning our trip. We were able to convey our preferences and the specific activities that we wanted to do and you had a custom itinerary ready to go. We were so impressed with your willingness to go back and forth on hotels or places we wanted to visit and make us feel like our experience was truly personalized. Once we arrived, you introduced us to a caring, safe, and friendly driver Michael. You both also so generously opened your home to us and made us feel like a part of your family – we will never forget this kindness and hospitality. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you for making our trip so special
ABSOLUTELY GREAT EXPERIENCE
I highly recommend this tour company, introduced by my friend in Australia. Nalin, did a very good job to assist us on all the matters. Help us to plan the itinerary and suggestion on attractions, special events and hotels. He and his team provided us an absolutely great Sri Lanka experience. We really enjoy the trip and recommend Good Day Sri lanka.
