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.

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

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.

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).
