Birding, architecture, culture, wildlife - excellent all the way!

Excellent in every way. During the planning stages Jith was prompt, responsive and always full of suggestions. Once in Sri Lanka, both our guides were excellent – they knew their birds and where to find them, and they were just as helpful in other ways (this was as much an architectural / cultural trip as a wildlife trip). What was most impressive was the way everything was handled when a close relative of our guide, Saman, passed away overnight in the middle of the trip. Everything was seamless – a new guide was there in the morning, allowing Saman to go home and us to continue without a hitch, and despite having driven half the night to get to us with almost no notice, our new guide was chirpy, happy and on the ball from the outset.

You understood our requirements and made helpful suggestion to our proposed itinerary. All our queries were answered promptly and efficiently

If you receive enquiries about photo tours, advise them that the forest areas are only good for watching. For good photos there needs to be open views and more light, so Bundala, Yala & Udawlawa are better. More reports/ photos from clients to show what can be taken.

Tour comment in Polish

It was a wonderful Birdwatching trip. We saw all endemics and in total 242 spices of birds.

We had great bird guide Thilina, who has a large knowledge about birds, habitats and birds call. We had too a second guide Angello who know reptiles very well. We was imprested.

All our team (included 2 guys from the bus) had wonderful sense of humour. All four was very good organized. Company Walk With Jith makes good birding tours and we hope come back in Sri Lanka some day.

Sorry for mistakes :)

Wonderful all over!

Excellent organization and operation. Really fit our heads and wishes. Really fit our needs and wishes.

Senerath was very very professional!

Very knowledgeable, cooperative, very nice man and a pleasure to be with and deal with.

Senarath is an excellent perfect driver. Very safe! Jith responded quickly and potiently. Very kindly, too. Organized very thing we wanted.

Hotel locations and services were excellent! Loved them!

 

Except for Weligama. Very slow service in this unfriendly hotel (Heritage).

Would have been better to have a nicer location – not on a main road.

Learnt a huge amount about the wildlife and culture of Sri Lanka

8 day endemic bird tour

Tour Leader: Tharanga Herath

We have enjoyed a wonderful eight days successfully seeing all the endemic bird species. Tharanga worked tirelessly to find all the endemics and to ensure we had a brilliant trip. His knowledge, passion and good nature ensured that we had a fabulous time and learnt a huge amount about the wildlife and culture of Sri Lanka. As we are photographers this meant not only did Tharanga have to facilitate us seeing the birds but where humanly possible photographing them as well!

Expert on the birds in all the locations and National Parks

Jith gave in an excellent service, tailormade for our requirements. I can strongly recommend Walk With Jith!!

The birding trip itself was very well organized and managed by our bird guide – Athula.

Athula was an expert on the birds in all the locations and National Parks -  The Parks are so big that you need to know the best places, to go to avoid the crowds.

Athula also took in to some other great places in the hill to find the endemics. We had a good haul of photos to take home.

Of course, it’s not all about birding for a perfect trip. The guide needs to be patient with guests and Athula was always helpful and attentive.

Overall – Great trip much enjoyed.

Thank you Athula and Jith!!!

Did everything for us both for birding and having a smooth trip

We had a fantastic time with Athula. He is a very nice guy and did everything for us both for birding and having a smooth trip. “If we had asked him to change the weather he certainly would have tried it.”

Our main goal was to see all endemic birds and we only missed Legge’s Hawk Eagle. A fantastic result especially because we had only 8 days.

Advise for future “short endemic trips” à Skip Kandy and Udawatta Kelle and spend more time in Kitulgala or Sinharaja.

Other advise: a telescope for serious birding trips.

Hi Jith, Firstly let me say what an excellent enjoyable holiday we had in Sri Lanka. The whole trip was brilliant and I will be recommending my friends to go there and to use your services!

The Guide: Mr. Upali was an excellent guide and companion on our trip. He was very well informed about the birds, locations and local knowledge. He was also very knowledgeable when it came to the cultural sites and their history together with some very insightful information about Sri Lankan Buddhism. He was reliable, punctual and a safe driver. Please pass on our thanks to him for all his help.
