Brilliant from start to finish

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

Very passionate birder and tour guide, definitely recommend him

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.

Had a superb day in Sinharaja. Thilina was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. During the course of a hectic day we saw 66 species and virtually all of the target species. Unfortunately my visit to Sinharaja was too short but I would recommend Walk With Jith who were professional and helpful throughout.

I can not tell you how glad I am that I booked w/ Jith. Upali is a rare and beautiful soul.

I booked a very last minute trip to Sri Lanka and contacted Jith because a friend recommended his company. Jith replied right away w/ a proposed itinerary that suited me perfectly. My trip was in only two days so I was very relieved and booked. I can not tell you how glad I am that I booked w/ Jith. His team is PHENOMINAL! Upali was my guide and driver. This man is a rare and beautiful soul. I have been traveling for almost 5 months and am an expert in tour guides at the this point and Upali is the best of the best. He has an eagle eye for birds and animals & knows them all by name. He took me to some of his favorite spots and I was able to see flying foxes and the greater Sri Lankan Flameback as well as many other endemic birds and non endemic birds.

I had an excellent guide, Thilina

The tour organized by Jith was fantastic. I had an excellent guide, Thilina. He was very knowledgeable about wildlife, especially birds as well as Sri Lanka more generally. He worked exceptionally hard to ensure we saw as many species as possible. This included a large number of endemic species. Thilina was extremely friendly and ensured the trip ran smoothly. He listened to all questions and tailored the experience when requested. The accommodation was also very good and “did the job”. Thilina was helped by excellent local drivers and guides especially in Sinharaja where “Walk With Jith” uses outstanding local parties. Overall a fantastic experience.

Thank-you for a fantastic trip. Tailor-made just for our honeymoon. Our guide Chamil was great and made the whole trip go smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble and any requests were always met with a smile.
We got to experience a wide range of sights and activities, and although we did so much, we had enough ‘down time’ to relax and enjoy our holiday. A great time was had, thank-you!
