Mr. Pradeep Rathnayaka
National Tour Lecturer

Pradeep is a man of many talents. After completing his higher studies in 1982, he joined CDE (Ceylon Development Engineers), one of the largest construction companies in the country. Interestingly, the same company had a local flying school as a subsidiary, and Pradeep wasted no time in obtaining his pilot’s license while working for CDE.

Sometime later, Pradeep established Victory Constructions Company, which he still owns to this day. Alongside his professional endeavors, he has a passion for traveling, bird-watching, wildlife photography, and adventure sports such as abseiling, water sports, and trekking.

It was Pradeep’s love for these hobbies that led him to explore the tourism industry. He obtained his chauffeur tourist guide license and National Tourist Guide License, claiming the top rank in his batch, from SLTDA (Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority), a government-owned institute. He has since worked as a freelance tourists guide for many tour agencies and shared his wealth of experience and knowledge with people from all over the world.

We are delighted to share some of Pradeep’s experiences with you and hope that they inspire you to explore the beauty and wonder of the world.
