Thilina was kind enough to adapt to our special requests without any bad feeling & additional cost.

our tour has now nearly ended. I send you the recommendation for your website attached:

Our tour was focused on high quality bird photography in combination with a relaxing holiday. One week in the dry zone around Yala NP has been a great success. Bird photography is not really challenging in Sri Lanka, but I would never been able to get as many high-quality pictures without Thilina.

Best price and fast response. Highly recommend “Walk With Jith” and Sri Lanka

It was a great tour with Jith. The logistics, transport, accommodation and places we visited were excellent.

Our guide Hetti was able to find us all the endemics, and the rare wintering birds. I do highly recommend “Walk With Jith” and Sri Lanka in general. You had the best price and fast response.

Not suitable to bird in December. Rain most of the time. Thili is very hardworking and knowledgeable in bird and bird calls. Highly recommended to come birding again.

Thank you

Well planned to optimize birding in different habitats

3 Nov 2019

Walk With Jith is an excellent company to go birding with. Everything was well planned to optimize birding in different habitats.

The guide (bird) Athula is a very knowledgeable bird guide. He is very dedicated and very passionate in his work and looking for endemic species. He goes all out to look for endemic birds and has sharp eyes. He is a very good spotter… can find birds even while driving.

I would highly recommend Athula and Walk With Jith for birding in Sri Lanka.

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. ​

Thank you so much Athula for an absolutely amazing six days of birding. Not only is Athula professional in his guide services, he ensured that everything was well taken care of including the accommodations and food. Athula is an expert bird guide and he knows each bird species and calls which he can easily identify. Throughout the six days he has put in a lot of hard work and dedication to ensure that we were able to see all the endemics.

Birding only in Sinharaja and Nuwara Eliya we were able to see all endemics except the Wood Pigeon.  Highlight of the trip included photography the endemic Serendib Scopes Owl, Sri Lanka Frogmouth, Scaly Thrush and the all-time elusive and incredible rare Ceylon Bay Owl. It is only with Athula’s expert service that we were able to achieve this and we would highly recommend Athula to any prospective bird watches or photographers.

We could not have wished for better.

Our guide Tilly (Thilina) was outstanding and we would recommend him to anyone- especially bird photographers. Accommodation was very good and the gardens around Hibiscus and Blue Magpie were “dripping” with birds.

We had a great holiday and would definitely use WWJ again. These guys really know their birds and where to find them.

Through Walk With Jtih arrangement. We had a wonderful birding trip experience in Sri Lanka starting from Feb 23rd to March 04th 2019.

During this journey, we watched 203 species of birds which includes all the 33 endemics. Thanks to Athula, our bird guide, he is a birding expert, without his help we couldn’t achieve our target.

All endemics found !!!

We have been birding with Walk With Jith 26.1 – 9.2.2019. The orientation and schedule comes from experience and have fully satisfied our expectations. Concerning hotel accommodation I suggest for photographers, Martin’s Lodge when in Sinharaja. Our *** totaled more than 210 species, of which many nicely photographed, often in challenging conditions. A special mention to our guide Thilina that is always available and flexible, tireless and knowledgeable. With his continuous efforts we have really enjoyed our stay here in Sri Lanka.

Great, Jith and Thilina

P.S. All endemics have been found!!!
