Our trip to Sri Lanka with Walk With Jith was from 27 Apr to 1 May 18. We are extremely delighted with all the arrangements, which started with the reception at the airport, where we received 01 package which included a guidebook on birds of Sri Lanka and a road map (such attention to details and thoughtfulness !)

We are especially happy with our chauffeur guide, Thilina! He is professional, friendly and always do his best to find the birds!

We strongly recommend Walk With Jith for those planning a trip to Sri Lanka and in fact, we are already planning for another visit!

3,000 photographs of over 200 bird and numerous mammals including leopards, elephants and blue whales

We first became aware of Walk With Jith at 2017 Birdfair when we met Prasanjith Caldera in person. His knowledge of and passion for Sri Lankan wildlife was infectious. After contacting him by email and informing him we were interested in the Wildlife and Photography Tour we arrived in Sri Lanka on 14th February 2018. We were met by Jith himself and our dedicated tour guide Thilina Kayrunana (Tili) who was our companion for the next 14 days. Tili shared the same qualities as his boss and over the next 2 weeks we obtained 3,000 photographs of over 200 bird and numerous mammals including leopards, elephants and blue whales. Tili recognised every bird by call alone and his eyesight was astonishing. He catered for our every need so that our trip ran smoothly and was a great ambassador for both Walk With Jith Tours and Sri Lanka. Thanks to Jith and Tili for providing such an incredible adventure and we would recommend them to everyone unreservedly!

Thank you for a well organized and very enjoyable 16 days in Sri Lanka. Wherever we went, the people were very hospitable, extremely friendly & helpful – hotel staff, locals, jeep drivers, shopkeepers etc – always smiling and genuinely pleased to see you, even welcoming you into their houses and gardens to enable you to see owls in their rafters or spurfowl in their gardens at odd hours of the day!

Gave me trust and confidence

It is now common to make a deal in the internet.

Just like what I was doing with the “Walk With Jith” which gave me trust and confidence the company would provide the excellent service as what it has said in the email by answering my enquiry with in a day. I must say that Jith have done a good job to keep patience in answering what I have asked even the even the itinerary have changed for several times.

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

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.
