Tilak was our group’s personal tour guide and he was just brilliant!!
His cultural and historical knowledge of the island, his attentiveness to the group’s needs, combined with his lovely sense of humour and enthusiastic  approach, made visiting Sri Lanka very special.  He also took great care in ensuring we had the best ‘site’ tour guides as well. Tilak is a Kandy Fire Dancer; a troupe of indigenous Sri Lankans who perform dance routines around the world representing the historic,  mythical beauty of Sri Lanka dressed in exuberantly colourful costumes. We were treated to front row seats at a performance during our stay in Kandy City followed by a visit back stage after the performance to meet the troupe… a  real treat! Tilak’s vast knowledge and attention to detail was reflected daily in his ability to satisfy the group’s  ‘tourist’ requests – where to find the best  wooden carvings, brass wear, saris, lace work and Sri Lankan batiks, Ayurvedic  massages and treatments etc. Nothing was too much trouble, on the contrary,  Tilak’s genuine generosity of spirit and desire to serve his clients was of paramount importance to him. I would not hesitate in recommending Rainbow Tours with Tilak for the best cultural and spiritual tour of this resplendent island  – professionally designed to suit your needs and experience what this paradise island really has to offer!
