I am Vineetha Prematilake
I am a national freelance tour guide since 2013 ( Volo Lanka Tours ). I started my carrier at Grand Hotel Nuwara Eliya. It was in 1993, since then I gained a lot of experience through association and friendship with guests, mainly from Europe. I went to Italy in 2005 with my family and worked there nearly six years and returned to Sri Lanka to start my own business Volo Lanka Tours in the field of tourism.
First, I followed a course organized and conducted by Sri Lanka Tourism Authority. After successfully completing the course my knowledge and skills improved vastly and I started my travel and tours business ( Volo Lanka Tours ) with self confidence and enthusiasm. Now I am a qualified guide to serve foreign tourist visiting Sri Lanka. I have a license and certificate from authorities of Sri Lanka to do this service. I played soccer for the national team of Sri Lanka before I entered the guiding profession. Thought out my engagement of this profession I gained experience in guiding tourist. I know what they want and how they want it.
When foreigners visiting Sri Lankan places and events, they want to know exact information related to them. I myself experienced that how important the information to a curious mind, when I worked in a castle in Italy sometime back. I can speak and write in Italian in addition to English. I was one of the coordinators of a major summit of SAARC countries held in Nuwara Eliya in 1999.
