We stayed at the Neptune in Beruwela and used a local guy to take us on a three day tour. I found Karnal De Silva through recommendations on Trip Advisor and booked via the internet before we went to Sri Lanka. Karnal has an eight seater mini van which, although not new, was always spotlessly clean with excellent air conditioning. Although the van can take eight people, Karnal prefers to do a personal tour and only took myself, my husband and our son so we had plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. We also had a driver so Karnal could just concentrate on the guiding and point out things of interest on the way, once you have been on the roads in Sri Lanka you will realize that it would be impossible to safely drive and guide at the same time! Karnal went out of his way to ensure we had the tour we wanted and everything was done at our pace taking as long as we wanted at each place we visited. I highly recommend Karnal to take you on a tour

Hello,
In answer to your question our family used the services of Karnal & his brother Sampath. I would highly recommend him, his English is very good & his knowledge about his country is amazing. He will arrange excursions entirely around your plans, stop when you want to & allow you as much time as you like to look around.

He arranged us a Safari around Yala & the accommodation we stayed at was fantastic, again this had all been arranged by himself. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to contact me, I cannot recommend him highly enough

Greetings from Singapore! I used Karnal in December 2009. There were two of us and both of us enjoyed the trip alot. We are all seasoned travellers and I had a Lonely Planet with me. So I could discuss various possibilities and potential changes to the itinerary if needed. I am also fairly well versed with Sri Lankan history and politics (I read alot and have followed the country's reports for a long time), and found Karnal an interesting and engaging person to speak to. We made a number of changes to our itinerary starting from a few months before the trip, right up through the trip. Karnal was very nice and accommodating in allowing us to change the itinerary even while we were there, even though he had already booked the hotels we were supposed to spend the night in. We asked for and managed to get to Trincomalee, a city in the Tamil Northeast, which was up till not too long ago a war zone. We would highly recommend him to anyone.

Hope this isn't too late for your journey but yes, my husband and I used Karnal de Silva last June when we were out in Sri Lanka. I can't praise him highly enough. He's thoroughly honest, knowledgeable about everything you need to know about Sri Lanka and speaks great English. Someone I recommended him to has also used him since and came back with the same glowing comments. So believe me, he won't allow you to be ripped off or taken to counsins' jewellery shops, tailors, etc., he'll make sure you have the best ever visit to his country and return with beautiful memories.

Have a wonderful holiday.

Hello!
After reading some of the posts on here, I wanted too give you my assesment of Karnals tour services. I returned from Sri Lanks a few weeks ago, and had a blast! As part of our Sri Lankan trip my friend and I went on a five day tour with Karnal which was fantastic. He is very professional, speaks english well, and was great value. Even after the tour was over, my friend and I needed a lift from Galle to Colombo, and Karnal was able to take us at a great price. When we asked him to recommend a cooking class in the Galle area, he invited us back to his house to learn how to cook traditional Sri lankan food with his family. This was easily the highlight of my trip, and the food was delicious! I can recommend him as an honest and trustworthy man, who was very generous in inviting us back to his home to met his family after the tour was over. I would definatly recommend his service.

I know this is a late post, but i felt it was worthwhile recording my expierience of Karnals service.

Thanks
Kate

Hi All,
Just to further add to the discussion. I returned Saturday (6th march 2010) from 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. 7 days were spent with Karnal De Silva having gained contact details via this website. We were not disappointed. I will be completing a report for the travel forum shortly but just wanted to vouch for Karnal as legitimate, reliable, very knowledgable and pleasant company. We found his rated very reasonable compared with others and have aready reccommended his services to family members visiting next year.

Hope this is of use.

I highly recommend the tour guide/driver we had in our recent trip. His name is Karnal de Silva. A quick Google search will take you to his website.

Karnal is very open to discussing various ways of putting together your itinerary, in terms of sites to see, hotels you want to stay in and length of tour. I must have sent a dozen or so emails to him before our trip, but he was always happy to tweak here and there as we wanted. Karnal and his friendly driver picked us up from our Colombohotel and we had a spacious and clean people carrier to sprawl out in. He was a pleasure to talk to, knowledgeable, and - most of all - attentive to our needs, always making sure the hotel rooms were to our liking etc.

Karnal and his driver is an independent tour operation so you know that you are not simply allowing a third party to profit. Good value and highly recommended.

Jõudsime tagasi Olime 2 nädalat Sri Lankal ja jõudsime pühapäeval koju tagasi.

Lennukipiletid bronnisime Matkapunktist juba augustis. Paar nädalat enne väljasõitu tegime sealsete reisipakkujate (5 või 6) vahel valiku ja otsustasime Karnal de Silva kasuks. Soovisime 5 päevast ringreisi ja mainisime ära kohad, mida kindlasti näha tahtsime ja palusime teatada mis oleks umbes sellise ringreisi hind. Karnali valisime just kiire vastuse ja konkreetse vastuse ja suht madala hinna pärast. Sagarale kirjutasime ka , aga vastus tuli nii üldine, et teeb kõik mida soovime jne. ja hinda ei olnud lisatud.

Meie sooviks oli veel, et ei taha suuri hotelle vaid pigem väiksemaid ja vaiksemaid.

Ringreisiga jäime rahule ja edasi juba leppisime kokku, et Karnal korraldab ka meie edasise puhkuse. 4 ööd olime Mirissas, siis tulid giid ja autojuht meile järgi ja käisime Galles, Hikkaduwas jne. ja siis 3 ööd Akurala külas Sanny's GuestHouse's. Sealt viidi meid ühel õhtul õhtustama giidi koju. Siis järgnes sõit Colombosse ja sealt edasi Negombosse, kus oli meil viimane öö. Kui aeg käes tuli meile tuk-tuk järgi ja viis lennujaama. Giid oli asjalik ja autojuht Sampath mõnu rõõmurullike, tänu kellele ei pidanud me kordagi selles hullumeelses liikluses hirmu tundma.

Kellel tahtmist siis Karnali

ja tel.nr. 094(0)776644295.

Kel küsimusi mulle, siis maret234@hot.ee Ja maksis meile see ringreis 400USD 2inimest, hinnas ei olnud sissepääsu pileteid, kõik muu oli.

שבוע שעבר חזרנו מטיול חוייתי בסרי לנקה. יעד מומלץ! תרבות מרתקת, נופים נפלאים אנשים נעימים ומחירים סבירים. במיוחד אנחנו רוצים להמליץ על מדריך ומלווה צמוד בשם קרנאל דה-סילבה (Krnal de-Silva)...
