Brilliant tours
At Easter we stayed in a beautiful house locally, and Hikkasurf Tours arranged brilliant trips for us. they had their own mini vans with air conditioning which were very comfortable and always arrived on time even though our villa was tucked away! We did a 3 day trip to the tea plantations including a river rafting trip my son and husband really enjoyed. We stayed in the mountains with the hotel being arranged for us. They even arranged train tickets on the fantastic mountain train meeting us at the other end. The tour also included an elephant safari at a national park, which was amazing! Other trips we also did included visiting Galle, a turtle farm, silk factory, wood carving factory and the not to be missed Tsunami museum! We can also recommend the trip to see the whales - we have never seen so many all in one place! Hikkasurf's tours were professional and very well organised - we can recommend them to anyone!

Awesome tour guide!
Thanks Upul from Hikkasurf Tours for your safe and reliable driving through our stay in Sri Lanka. We had a terrific time, and you came up with some great additional ideas of things to do whilst we toured around from Colombo to Trincomalee and back.With the frantic pace of traffic in Sri Lanka, it was a great comfort to have a professional driver, with great local knowledge and patient road skills. We will return! And next time, we'll take on the Southern part of Lanka, or course with Hikkasurf Tours!

Perfect tour guide
Throughout our holiday, nothing was too much trouble for Upul, he was very informative and able to suggest additional places to visit that we didn't know about such as the elephant foundation, turtle sanctuary, spice garden, river safari, cooking class, the list goes on. He was always contactable, flexible with times, able to help with anything we needed and always looked out for us. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a tour guide in Sri Lanka. We'll be calling him when we're back to tour the North!

Reliable and on time in Sri Lanka
With a family of 4 Upul drove us around for 10 days. Main thing he drives in a responsible way. Only hooting when it is necessary. Safe driver. We were on a holiday for our rest , so we didn't try to see the whole country. He can tell you the main things there are to see. Financially it was as negotiated . I can strongly recommend him as a driver and a guide.

Fantastic time
The owner Upul is very helpful,informative and nothing is too much trouble for him. He was always contactable and available to help with anything you asked. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a tour guide in Sri Lanka
Wonderful experience
We had a wonderful family get together in Hikkadua made all the better by the professional courteous service provided by Paul. His help and advice were invaluable in making our holiday relaxed and enjoyable with ages ranging from 5 to 70! Highly recommend him!
First class Service
We recently had the pleasure of using the services of Hikkasurf whilst staying in Sri Lanka. We did two tours with them and Channa our driver was the most sincere person you could ever meet. Nothing was ever to much trouble for him, his knowledge of the country is impeccable. When in resort there small fleet of Tuk Tuks and drivers where always there at the end of the phone which they supplied, we used them to go out in the evenings for dinner and if they new in advance where you wanted to go they would not only take you there but book your table and often this was the best table in the restaurant. We used them also for airport transfers. If you are coming to Sri Lanka and are staying in the Hikkaduwa Region look no further these 3 Brothers Upul, Channa and Sanje Will take care of you from the moment you arrive until they drop you back at the airport
Very professional
We used Hikkasurf tours to collect us from our first accommodation in Bentota to take us to "The Retreat" in Hikkaduwa. The boys from Hikkasurf tours, Sanji, Upul and Channa, also work with their father Raja and we used only their tuk tuk services when we stayed in Hikkaduwa. They made good suggestions to explore the local area. We went to a tsunami commemorative monument and museum, a river boat tour, turtle hatchery and moonstone mine all in one day. We then went to Jungle Beach, the only safe beach on that stretch of coastline that we were able to swim at that time of year, due to the massive waves and undertow. We had a trip to a tea plantation (Herman's) which was about an hour's tuk tuk drive from our accommodation. We loved the tuk tuks as you feel part of the whole experience. We asked to be taken to a shop in a place that wasn't touristy, for some sarongs and we had a fun hour or so looking for them with Upul!

Fantastic due to our driver , Upul
Our holiday success and happiness was due to Upul , we had an idea of our itinerary as our son and his girlfriend had booked a tour with Hikkasurf tours the previous year. Upul was also able to suggest more ideas such as the turtle hatchery and the tsunami photo museum in Hikkadawe which was very moving . Upul really took care of us and we felt safe and looked after. We had made one bad choice of hotel ( our choice not Upul's ) in Talalla ( not to be recommended)! Upul knew we were unhappy there and took us to Tangalla ( a little further along the coast ) and booked us into a fantastic hotel ( lagoon beach paradise) and negotiated a great price . We cannot thank Upul enough for the thoughtful and knowledgeable tour .
