Diane and I are sitting at the airport now waiting for our flight. I wanted to email you and thank you (and Athula) for the amazing experience and trip we had. Feel free to copy and paste any or all of this commentary onto your website, and especially onto Athula's reviews.

From the very beginning, the experience was great as the response to our initial inquiries was very quick and professional. The trip was organized well with a great itinerary.

Wonderful experience. We will come back!

Walk With Jith tours was a wonderful experience for us. Our driver Dammika was a wealth of information in every aspect. His calming, friendly manner made every part of our journey wonderful. We have nothing but praise for him and are very thankful that he was our guide for our tour of Sri Lanka.  

We will come back!

An Excellent tour which covered all our requests and needs. The itinerary was well thought out and planned. The tour guide, Thilina, went above and beyond to make sure that we were always comfortable, happy, fed and that good service was provided by our accommodation and drivers.

Thilina’s knowledge of birds and his ability to see them in all types of light and vegetation was impressive!

Looking forward to planning our next trip. ​

20 day trip, great mix, loved Hetti

18 Dec 2018

Superb and well organised 20 day trip, loved hetti who is an expert wildlife guide. We learnt the names of many Sri Lankan birds and animals. Our trip was a great mix of different experiences from safaris and walks to ancient cultural sites. We would recommend walk with ith to others.

Our driver Sumudu had a lovely manor and kept the van very clean.
We were also appreciative of the efforts to reduce plastic water bottle waste so we bought our own water bottles and a sterilizer pen and the company provided 5 litre bottles to refill our bottles when needed.

Thank you very much Susantha. Extremely happy with everything.

Susar gave us a feedback form to fill out but instead we’re emailing it to you as we didn't get time to fill it in by hand.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Susar for driving us around for the week. It has been the absolute best way for us to get around and see beautiful Sri Lanka.

We loved how much history Susar knew and told us about as we was passing all off the lovely landmarks. Nothing was ever too much for him and he took us wherever we needed or wanted to go.

Thank you very much, we are extremely happy with everything.

Phenomenal ability to spot a difficult bird, endless patience, and a ton of energy

I have nothing but praise for Walk With Jith. From the moment I emailed Jith to enquire about a tour, I felt that I was in safe hands, dealing with people who understood just what I wanted and were happy to provide it. I soon learned that Jith runs a very professional operation, with kindness, expertise, and thoughtful attention to detail.

My main driver Thilina was fair dinkum amazing: I reckon I’ve met some pretty good birders over the years, and I’m no beginner myself come to that, but Thilina takes the cake. Nice bloke, cheerful, easy going, phenomenal ability to spot a difficult bird, endless patience, and a ton of energy. We did an eclectic mixture of bird photography, hard-core birding, landscape photography, and various other things as the fancy took us. Perfect.

Birds and other wildlife -- we got everything and much more from our tour.

As two people interested in birds and other wildlife, we got everything and much more from our tour. While the national parks were amazing, walk with Jith’s contacts with local villages were equally memorable. The knowledge and enthusiasm of our expert guide and friendliness of all the special jeep drivers made for a wonderful experience in a beautiful country. Go to Sri Lanka for your own walk with Jith! You wont be disappointed!

Thank you for an awesome Honeymoon experience

My wife and I have spent a week with Athula and its been amazing. Sri Lanka is a beautiful Country but without Athula as our guide, we wouldn't have learn’t half as much as we have and it wouldn't have been as easy to get around and see everything we have seen.

The suggested hotels have been great with some great locations and the itinerary that was put together for us has been excellent for us. We’ve enjoyed the adventure that Sri Lanka has offered with the luxury element that walkwithjith provides organizing the trip was easy with jith. Hes got great knowledge and was always fast to reply or change elements of the plan for us.

Thank you for an awesome Honeymoon experience Jith and Athula.

For a combined wildlife and cultural trip, the bird list exceeded my expectations

“Organising the trip could not have been any easier. It only took a couple of emails to agree the plan and then we got pricing which made clear what was and was not included. Quick turnaround on questions gave a very positive impression.

Dhammika was a good, professional guide and a safe driver. He was always good humoured and worked hard to make the holiday work smoothly yet flexibly. For a combined wildlife and cultural trip, the bird list exceeded my expectations. We all enjoyed the variety of interesting activities, good accommodations and good wildlife sightings.

As a suggestion for how to improve things, it would have been good if we had a more detailed briefing of what was happening in advanced each day, and sometimes being given a few more options to choose from would be helpful.

For example:

-if we’d known in advanced that the Yala safari included a two-hour lunch break we could have bought a book to read or activities for children.

Understanding, attentive, punctual, v. good sense of humor -- decided to come back!

Dear Jith,

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday!

We thought we would give detailed feedback in email form and enclose a photo or two.


Our guide Chameera was just perfect. He quickly realised in early conversations what we wanted from our holiday and tailored it to be just right for us. He was quietly attentive, punctual and had a very good sense of humour, coping very well with us! He also introduced us to a bit of bird watching and despite this being a non-birding holiday, we saw ten endemics which gave us a lot of pleasure.

We had such a good experience with Cham and enjoyed Sri Lanka so much that we have decided to come back next year and would very much like Cham to be our guide. We have already discussed a rough itinerary with him for next year.
