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.

We’ve had a wonderful holiday. We asked for a combination of birding and wildlife with some historical and cultural sites. We are very pleased with it all.

Wise advice. Sharing, flexible and patient guide

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.

Our tour in November 2017 was brilliant from start to finish. It passed our expectations by a mile. From the initial booking and enquiring process; which was smooth and easy, Jith was in regular communication and changed the itinerary to fit our needs.

Our guide, Upali, was the star of the show, a brilliant birdwatcher and naturalist, he made every effort to locate the endemic birds of Sri Lanka, and pointed out other interesting plants and creatures along the way. His local knowledge was invaluable, and impressive. We managed to see nearly 200 bird species; we had great views of all but one endemic – we gave up – not Upali. We also saw many monkey species, giant squirrels, lizards, butterflies, etc. And thanks to Upali’s spotting skills - WE SAW A LEOPARD!!

Their knowledge is supreme, very very kind

What a wonderful three days. Tili and Tila are superb people and birders, and nothing is too much for them. The obviously have seen many birds in Sri Lanka, yet they seemed as excited, if not more, than as vising birders. And their knowledge is supreme. I highly recommend them not just for their guiding but for the pleasure of their company. -- Terence

Can't have  enough good words about both Tili & Tila. Very knowledgeable and very very kind. Tila has taken extreme good care of me while birding, giving my <text not clear> ...

And took very good care when I felt sick. Wonderful experience

Thilina is a very passionate birder and tour guide. I really enjoyed the birding time with Thilina.

Thilina knows the location of birds very well, and he got extraordinary hearing.

I would definitely recommend him to my friends.

Jith’s tour delivered all of these wonderfully

Could not have had a better introduction to Sri Lanka! We are not expert nature walkers and instead wanted an itinerary that mixed nature with culture, scenery and a little sea-side down time…

… and Jith’s tour delivered all of these wonderfully!

Special mention must go to out driver guide, Saman, who could not have been more helpful. Was always ready with nature tips & cultural information, not to mention explanations of Sri Lankan food. The other guides roped in along the way were also great too!

We are now going back to England full of praise for Sri Lanka… and will be recommending Walk With Jith to al our friends.

PS Forgot to mention the accommodation: all were excellent and great value for money.
