Jith. We arrived in Sri Lanka with a very limited knowledge of the country and its people.

We leave now with an insight into the history, culture, religion and everyday life of its exceptionally friendly people, thanks to you help and guidance.

Without your superb vision and field craft I would never have seen even a fraction of the bird species

All things bright & beautiful
All creatures great & small
All things wise & wonderful
Our man Jith knows them all

Thank you for making this a wonderful trip for me - being with two fanatical birdwatchers, your job was not an easy one but you "wrapped it up" oh so well!! Cool. Only joking!!

The Elephant safari were amazing.

This holiday has been the holiday of a lifetime. Jaya has been more than just a guide or driver; he has been a true friend to us. He has been patient, kind, considerate and a real gentleman, and we will miss him when we leave.

We have enjoyed everything. Jaya is very knowledgeable about Sri Lankan history and culture, especially Buddhism. We loved visiting Polonnaruwa and the cave temples at Dambulla and felt humbled at the temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy - it was a fantastic experience.

Jaya is also very knowledgeable about Sri Lankan wildlife and the walk across Horten Plains and the Elephant safari were amazing.

We really appreciated the way you adjusted our itinerary to compensate [downpours]

Dear Prasanjith,

Thank you for a truly enjoyable holiday despite the daily downpours from 2 o'clock onwards. It is the tropics after all. However, we really appreciated the way you adjusted our itinerary to compensate.

Your tours of Sigiriya and the Royal Palace gave us an interesting insight into the history, culture and religion of Sri Lanka.

We enjoyed the works in the Knuckles and Horton Plains. Your knowledge of the flora and fauna, and ability to spot and identify the smallest of birds enriched our experience.

A wonderful stress free holiday. John pursued countless butterflies

Many thanks Jith for a wonderful stress free holiday. We won't say it's been relaxing getting up so early in the morning but it's been worth it to see all the amazing birds you have shown us. We were disappointed not to be able to visit Yala National Park but appreciated your concern for our safety and very much enjoyed the destinations you arranged as an alternative.

Thank you, too, for your patience as John pursued countless butterflies in an attempt to photograph them and for your help in spotting them.

We certainly plan to "Walk With Jith" again

Stay at Sinharaja was from another world, and not to be missed by anyone who has the slightest interest in anything natural

Dear Jith,

My wife and I considered coming here birding with a guide as somewhat of a risk. Previously we have always just booked a flight, to wherever, hired a car at the airport and travelled around with great freedom aiming at particular sites of interest and staying wherever possible. So to book a guide and driver for 2 weeks was somewhat questionable for us. Having to spend 2 weeks together with two strangers was not something we did lightly. We have always enjoyed the excitement of finding our own birds.

I'll be back because I'm your Burger brother!

Prasanjith,

You made certain our visit was one of the best experience we have had - You patience with expatriate Sri Lankans will go down in family history as a legend. I hope we will feature in your family history also as a legend - especially Norman!!
