Tim and Susie Kemp - Walk With Jith tour

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 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.

8 day endemic bird tour

Tour Leader: Tharanga Herath

We have enjoyed a wonderful eight days successfully seeing all the endemic bird species. Tharanga worked tirelessly to find all the endemics and to ensure we had a brilliant trip. His knowledge, passion and good nature ensured that we had a fabulous time and learnt a huge amount about the wildlife and culture of Sri Lanka. As we are photographers this meant not only did Tharanga have to facilitate us seeing the birds but where humanly possible photographing them as well!

Absolutely Love all the birds & animals we observed
