Best tour guides in Sri Lanka!
I have been lucky enough to have been on many tours with channa, sanjee and upel from hikkasurf over the years and due to their professionalism, knowledge and personalities. They will go above and beyond to ensure that you have the very best experience in every possible way. I always recommend hikkasurf to friends and people I meet whilst out there and no one as ever come back to me disappointed. Their minibuses are comfortable and very well maintained and if only a tuk tuk is needed then they will either come or send one of their trusted colleagues. Youu always feel safe in their care I wouldn't even contemplate anyone else.

THANK YOU UPUL !!!
Wir waren im Juli 2019 das erste mal auf Sri Lanka und haben auf Empfehlung einer Freundin eine 7 Tageszour mit Hikkasurf gemacht. Es war großartig! In einem tollen klimatisierten Kleinbus haben wir einige der schönsten Plätze besucht. Udawalawe Nationalpark mit vielen sehr nahen Begegnungen mit den Grauen Riesen, anschließend zum Milk feating bei den kleinen Elefanten Waisen. Weiter nach Ella , hier mit dem Zug durchs Hochland. In Kandy haben wir den botanischen Garten und den eindrucksvollen Zahntempel gesehen. Damubulla Höhlentempel, Sigiriya aus einer anderen Perspektive gesehen mit einem abenteuerlichen Aufstieg. Meeresschildkröten bewundert, eine Bootsfahrt im Madu Ganga , Shopping in Galle usw. Alle Unterkünfte sind von Upul super ausgesucht worden. Stets superpünktlich ging’s zur verabredeten Zeit los. Tolle kleine Restaurants zum Mittagessen wurden gefunden. Es war eine rundum gelungene Woche , die auch den „Anforderungen „von Teenagern gerecht wurde! Wir fühlten uns rund um die Uhr liebevoll und immer kompetent betreut und aufgehoben. Sri Lanka ist ein wundervolles Land mit so warmherzigen Menschen , wir kommen wieder. Mit Upul und Hikkasurf gibt es noch einiges zu entdecken vielleicht mal die Ostküste ...

Schöne Reise
Wir hatten mit Upul eine sehr schöne 12 tägige Reise quer durchs Land von links unten (Hikkaduwa) nach rechts oben (Trincomalee) und wieder zurück . Udawalawa - Ella-Kandy - Polunnaruwa - Trincomalee u. a., alle Hotels waren sehr gut ausgesucht und auch als Fahrer ist Upul zu empfehlen. Er ist ein sehr guter, umsichtiger Fahrer und hält sich, soweit ich es beurteilen kann, als einer der wenigen an die Verkehrsregeln :-) . Er hat oft nach unseren Wünschen gefragt und selbst wenn wir keine hatten waren seine Empfehlungen für Orte, Sehenswürdigkeiten, Ausflüge, Essen auf dem Weg richtig gut. Wir sind happy ihn als Fahrer und Reiseführer gehabt zu haben und können ihn nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

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!

Незабываемый отдых
В октябре 2018 года прекрасно отдохнули с подругой на Шри-Ланке, в Хиккадуве! Жили в джунглях, в доме Чанны- брат Упуля. Прекрасная доброжелательная семья, чистый и уютный дом. С Момента встречи в аэропорту и до отлёта в Москву нас сопровождал Санжи - тоже брат Упуля. Санжи- замечательный и отзывчивый , окружил нас заботой и вниманием. А главное- опытный и уверенный водитель, что очень важно при бешеном движении на дорогах Шри-Ланки. По нашей просьбе возил нас на колоритные воскресный овощной и рыбацкий рынки, посетили голубую лагуну, черепашью ферму, навестили слоников, живописный город Канди, Храм священного зуба Будды, королевский ботанический сад, сады специей. Очень благодарны за заботу, внимание и комфортные условия, созданные для достойного отдыха!

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.

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 .
