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!

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.
