You understood our requirements and made helpful suggestion to our proposed itinerary. All our queries were answered promptly and efficiently

If you receive enquiries about photo tours, advise them that the forest areas are only good for watching. For good photos there needs to be open views and more light, so Bundala, Yala & Udawlawa are better. More reports/ photos from clients to show what can be taken.

Doughlas and Brian at Walk With Jith tour 2017

This tour was one of the best tours I’ve been fortunate enough to go on. I’ve been on over twenty, so I do have some experience. We came to get the birds and we got all 34 endemics and I personally got a total of 243 and my UK friend got a total of 253!

The tour manger (owner Jith) picked us at the airport and took us to the hotel. In the morning Thilina (Thilley) Kaurnanayaka was our guide and we were so happy to have him as our guide. He is an outstanding guide and a wonderful person (pleasant, timely, great ears and eyes) can’t say enough!

The accommodations were good as well as the food. The birds? You’ve got to go the SRI LANKA to get their special endemics (34 species).

We have just spent three extraordinary weeks in Sri Lanka on a predominantly birdwatching holiday with some culture.

The arrangements have been perfect and the trip has run like clockwork. Jith even visited us halfway through to make sure we were happy.

It has been the most wonderful experience, entirely due to Athula, our guide, who was totally committed to our wellbeing and satisfaction. He has a great sense of humour, a ready smile and a zest for life & birds which is infections. His friendly demeanor meant that everywhere we went, we met lovely smile, friendly people & felt very at home. He was mine of information about his country & we learnt an amazing amount from him.

Everything went perfect on our mammal and birding trip

Everything went perfect on our mammal and birding trip with Walk With Jith. From the firs contact with Jith, who always answered fast and professionally. To our really excellent guide & birder Dammika, a cheerful, kind and knowledgeable character.

Thank you for a very enjoyable week birding in Sri Lanka. We were pleased to be able to have a focused & tailor-made tour around 3 sites – Kitulgala, Nuwara Eliya & Sinharaja. Our guide, Thilina, was superb. He was very knowledgeable about the location of target birds, very quick to spot them and very good at call identification. He ws also patient, Flexible and always in a good mood, additionally he drove well & safely. As well as birds he told us about local culture, politics, flora and fauna. We had too many highlights at each of the 3 main sites to pick anywhere out ass more special than the other places – including important stops and detours. We enjoyed it all & would highly recommend using this company.

Thank you so much Thili!

During my first trip to Sri Lanka, in August 2014, in the company of my wife, I got an excellent impression both of the country and services provided by “Walk With Jith”. So I made plans to come back with a  group of Spanish birders same time. Now in February 2017 this has finally being accomplished. And with the best success. All people in the group, 14 in all, have told me that they truly enjoyed the trip. We got a long bird list with some 220 species, and there was plenty of time to enjoy diverse Sri Lankan tourist attractions. From the ancient cities to Kandyan dancers and spice gardens. Also we were successful with leopards and blue whale! The four people attending us were really kind, friendly and efficient. And I am especially happy with our guide, Hetti, Thanks to all of them looking forward to come back soon!

Tour comment in Polish

It was a wonderful Birdwatching trip. We saw all endemics and in total 242 spices of birds.

We had great bird guide Thilina, who has a large knowledge about birds, habitats and birds call. We had too a second guide Angello who know reptiles very well. We was imprested.

All our team (included 2 guys from the bus) had wonderful sense of humour. All four was very good organized. Company Walk With Jith makes good birding tours and we hope come back in Sri Lanka some day.

Sorry for mistakes :)

Wonderful all over!

Excellent organization and operation. Really fit our heads and wishes. Really fit our needs and wishes.

Senerath was very very professional!

Very knowledgeable, cooperative, very nice man and a pleasure to be with and deal with.

Senarath is an excellent perfect driver. Very safe! Jith responded quickly and potiently. Very kindly, too. Organized very thing we wanted.

Hotel locations and services were excellent! Loved them!

 

Except for Weligama. Very slow service in this unfriendly hotel (Heritage).

Would have been better to have a nicer location – not on a main road.
