We were extremely pleased with the trip that we booked with Walk With Jith – our guide Upali has fantastic knowledge of all of the wildlife especially the birds and was a true professional.
We were looking for a unique holiday for our honeymoon, one that would be very special to us that we will remember for the rest of our lives and this trip certainly delivered.
Thank you very much Walk With Jith!

It was good to be guided to see all the endemics in 10 days

An excellent tour, and Saman was an excellent guide – very knowledgeable about the birds but also other wildlife and culture. Having two teenagers with little interest in birding could have made it difficult, but Saman did well to involve them sometimes and keep them interested.

With our particular interest in the birds, it was good to be guided to see all the endemics in 10 days – we would certainly not have found them all without help. We also got to see the pride Sri Lankans have in their wildlife and natural heritage, something other countries could aspire to.

Upali was amazing and a real expert bird watcher

Thanks to Jith and our local guide, Upali, we had a wonderful, 10-day tour of Sri Lanka. We learned so much about this country and its people. We took lots of beautiful pictures of scenery and birds to enjoy back home. Upali was amazing and a real expert bird watcher. We couldn’t believe all the birds that we got to see in all the parks and wetlands. We appreciated all the good email communications with Jith to plan everything just the way we wanted it. And the expedition was perfect! Thanks again! All the best!

The organization of the trip was excellent. All of the arrangements were perfect and this produced a trouble free trip. The services and knowledge of our driver/bird guide Thilina were first class and he knows very well how to find Sri Lanka’s birds. Due to his knowledge and hard work we succeeded in seeing all of Sri Lanka’s endemic bird species and many other species. Our trip list is 229 species.

We have spent 11 days of our 4 week holiday on a culture & birding tour with WWJ.
Our guide Nandana has been a great bonus to us. He has been good company, taught us lots about Sri Lanka’s culture and history. He has been patient and flexible and has gone over and above the call of duty to help us. Eg. Finding lost items and getting medication when I was ill. His ability as a bird guide is amazing – even though we did not expect to see so many – we have seen 31 out of 33 endemic species. The general birding experience has been fanctastic – Horton Palins and Sinharaja being the highlights of our trip. Tnaks also to Newton (Yala) and Thilak (Sinharaja) for expert driving!

Walk with jith more than met our expectations. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. He not only knew his bird species, he also knew which ones were endemic and which ones were migrant. He was able to compare them with ones that were in the us where we live and other Counties where we have visited, like South Africa. And most important for us. We also learned at our request about other flora and fauna, especially the unique lizards and flowing Shrubs and trees.

The driver was not only careful on the very crowded roads, but also good at spotting birds and lizards. He was much attuned to our needs. Slowing and stopping where possible for photos and bird watching opportunities.

A great way to experience Sri Lanka’s great birds.

Terrific 10 days in Sri Lanka. All arrangements worked perfectly. Faultless pre tour service and Jith met me on arrival and called before departure. And all for excellent value. A great way to experience Sri Lanka’s great birds.

The trip has been a magical journey for me and my family. To be with my mother and uncle as they visited place in Sri Lanka from their childhoods was marvelous, and all to   other locations, cities, hotels, shrines, temples and wildlife reserves was suspended not to mention all the birds. What really was special, was the comfort and ease of the whole holiday. We were in marvelous hands with Jith and attitude – always cared first and it made the journey effortless and marvelous.

I can’t walk to come back again further adventures with Sri Lanka and will. Happily WALK WITH JITH Again.

Thanks for everything.
