Hello Jith,

after a save return to Germany and a tough adaptation to our weather I now take my time to write a short review of the four day trip with Upali to Yala and Sinharaja rain forest. First of all ....... What made me choose you was the quick reply and the design of the tour according exactly to my wishes.

So here is my review:

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.

All endemics seen well by group!

In general: we are very happy with the tour we did and the things we have seen. We are not hardcore birders or photographers, so the birding was certainly good and enough. Only the Serendib Scopes Owl was for me a must have that we missed and for which I expected that we would have tried more to find it at different locations.

Athula was great to travel with, good birder, safe driver, pleasant and taking care of our little son. He did a lot of effort to find the special birds. I would certainly recommend him to everyone.

Our van was very comfortable to travel. All extra guides were very good and always on time, so te organization was excellent.

Birding guide knowledgeable over a wide range of subjects

Hi Jith,

As promised, here is some feedback from our recent tour.

We found the itinerary and pace of the tour to be just right for our needs with everything running smoothly and  to plan.

 The accommodation, on the whole, was excellent with several of the hotels having great views and a good variety of birdlife in and around the grounds to ensure that I never relaxed completely! The staff at all the hotels were very friendly and attentive, and the food was good, (neither of us had any tummy problems). The weakest was perhaps the Leisure Village Hotel at Nuwara Eliya due to its restricted menu. Our room at the Rock View Motel also suffered from a smelly shower drain, but this was soon solved by opening the patio doors and taking in the view of the mountains.

Enjoyed & very impressed! Will recommend to friends

Hi

Just to say thank you for organising our tour in Sri Lanka. We really enjoyed our trip and were very impressed with the organisation. Samam, our driver, was very knowledgable about everything and even changed the itinerary to fit in with our individual needs. Dumb was also good for the trip to the beach.

Just a few comments about the hotels:-

Tamarind Tree - Room and food good.

Kitulgala Rest House - Rooms definitely needs updating and the food was quite poor as very little choice especially in the evening.

Sorowwa Resort - Lovely room and food

River Side Villas - Rooms OK, food reasonable good but position rather out of the way so never saw Kandy

Grand - Our room was OK but at the back of the hotel, food was good.

Enjoyed & very impressed! Will recommend to friends
