About Us

Welcome to Jally tours. We offer individual tailor-made Sri Lanka holidays for the discerning traveler who values privacy, adventure, fantasy and above all truly authentic Sri Lanka holidays. The unique Sri Lankan tourist system of dedicated Guide-Chauffeurs is surprisingly affordable. It means that the client is able to see and learn so much about my wonderful country in a manner that is totally acceptable to them. This is so unlike the typical coach tour with tight schedules, standardized commentaries and compulsory stops at commercial outlets! On a personal note, I come from a professional home and am fluent in English. I am well versed in a broad range of subjects and have a variety of interests so I can satisfy most of my clients requests and questions.

Among the obvious topics are antiquities, culture, politics, wildlife, the 2004 tsunami, cricket and photographic opportunities. If I find that clients want to know about our gemstones, particularly Sri Lankan sapphires and/or authentic handicrafts, I can arrange for them to visit non-tourist locations, where these are sold. During the time I spend with my clients, I find a strong rapport builds up so that they feel I am their friend, to whom they can talk freely. I am by nature relaxed and not easily faced by unexpected situations. As you will see by the photographs, I like to wear smart-casual clothes, but can be more formally dressed if required. I have been a professional guide for the last 20 years, following an earlier career in hotel management, including time with Sheraton Hotels. Since we are small & Independent I get booked in advance most of the time, as such I have teamed up with some like minded professional colleagues to serve my clients if I am booked. A few services I provide,

  • Tailor-made vacation according to client's itinerary.

  • An all inclusive vacation (hotels, transport in a A/C vehicle, driver/chauffeur guide, entrance to sights).

  • Or else only transport in an A/C vehicle.
