    «Gayan est quelqu’un d’adorable, avec qui j’ai passé de super moments. Il n’est pas uniquement un très bon guide, mais il est une très bonne personne et vous découvrirez cela dès les premiers instants de votre voyage. Et si l’on parle purement du guide, et bien il est très bien! Il connaît parfaitement son pays, tous les endroits où il t’emmène et même ce que vous demandez. Si vous prenez Gayan comme guide, vous ne serez pas déçus, je vous l’assure. »  Isabelle Davin, France, 2018.
