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!

Guide: tons of experience and enthusiasm. Outstanding birding and cultural trip

Thank you for organizing an outstanding birding and cultural trip to Sri Lanka. The trip exceeded all my expectations!

Upali our guide was fantastic. He is and excellent birder with tons of experience and enthusiasm. Thanks to his efforts I was able to see over 180 species and all endemics. I had given up hope of seeing the last one, the scaly thrush, in Sinharaja forest. But Upali remained optimistic throughout our stay there and made sure we had good looks of this challenging endemic.

I am really glad that a friend recommended Walk With Jith. All the arrangements, accommodations and timely correspondence were wonderful. The service and food everywhere we visited was superb. I would highly recommend your company to my friends and wish you continued success.

Warmest regards,

Thanks to Jith’s planning and Dammika’s execution we have fallen in love with Sri Lanka. The country has exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was fantastic with seamless arrangements.

We could not have wished for a more helpful, personable driver/ guide. Dammika ensured we made the most of things, including an unscheduled train ride and buying lemon puff biscuits! The focus was on birds but also included wildlife and flora. We also had an insight into Sri Lankan life, culture and food. Beds everywhere were comfortable, staff were always friendly and helpful.

Thilina - Totally committed to achieving our goal of 33 endemic species

Walk With Jith was highly recommended to us by a friend who had a very successful birding tour with the company. Our specific request was a keek long tour of Sri Lankan endemic birds. This was agreed and arranged quickly and efficiently by email.

Our birding guide, Thilana Karunanayaka, was extremely knowledgeable, energetic and totally committed to achieving our goal of 33 endemic species in a single week. He was also a safe driver and a good companion.

All the logistical arrangements were well planned and accommodation changes between locations went very smoothly.

We would highly recommend Walk With Jith and Thilina Karunanayaka for a Sri Lankan birding holiday.

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.

Jith for an outstanding holiday programme - good fun, highly knowledgeable Koushala

15 Jan 2018

Many thanks to our excellent, good fun, highly knowledgeable guide Koushala and his nice, smiling driver Indunil, for a superb 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. We have had a wonderful experience: amazing bird watching, fascinating cultural visits, breathtaking scenery, tasty food and many” warm encounters with Sri Lankan people across the country. The mix and variety of days has been enchanting, but also exhausting. The early mornings birding have always been exciting and fun. We were fortunate to have leopard sightings and encounters with other mammals & reptiles. The beautiful and varied Sri Lankan flora takes your breath away. No visit to this country would be complete without seeing & understanding its cultural heritage. Last but not least… we loved good Sri Lankan food and were perfectly encouraged & advised by our guide, who is well educated, able to speak English brilliantly and a wonderful ambassador for his country.

Pre-tour planning and communication with Jith was excellent!

The pre tour planning and communication with Jith was excellent and we particularly like the speed of his responses to our questions.

One of our party suffered flight delays causing the lost of the first day of his holiday. Jith kindly met the late arrival and arranged extra transport at no extra cost. 
The guide for our 10 day tour was Thilina. We found him informed, extremely enthusiastic and his birding skills were exceptional. We saw all the endemic birds and many more besides as well as leopard and a memorably close encounter with an elephant.
We give “ Walk With Jith” our highest recommendation.

The flexibility and wise advice you offered at the planning stages were much appreciated as was your clear communication. I knew we were in safe hands from the start.

Our guide, Hetti, was fantastic at sharing his detailed knowledge of Sri Lanka, especially its wildlife. He was always flexible and patient; he often made helpful suggestions about how we could alter our programme, good places to eat and where to see wildlife, especially birds. It was a real privilege to spend two weeks with such and expert.
