DOF Tour 2018

DOF Travel har aftluttet den første tur af to I januar 2018. Igen har det vceret med stor success of fuldtilfred shed i vores gruppe på 19 deltagere. Det er selvfelgelig vord at bemcerke, at vi mødte alle Sri Lankas 34 endemishe fuglearter of nosten alle under meget fine betingelser. Men det vigtisgte er, at arrangementet som helhed for løb scerdeles godt – med perfekt guiding af Supurna Hettiarachchi og veltilrettelagt af Walk With Jith. DOF vender meget gerne tilbage og har allerede planlagt de noste ture.

My son and I participated in a 2 week long both birding and cultural excursion through Sri Lanka.

The planning process went on in a smooth and flexible way where the schedule was adjusted to our specific needs and we preferences.

As tour guide and chauffeur, UPALI did a magnificent gob ensuring that every detail was considered and taking care of – local guides were ready and at place when needed, and the hotels and restaurants for lunch were always first class situated in beautiful environments. Besides the perfect planning Upali showed up to be a very competent ornithologist able to identify find and distinguish between a lot of specific species. We were indeed very satisfied. 

Good Communication about the details of the tour, excellent service

Good Communication about the details of the tour, excellent service around including the hotels and on this tour (and as told from earlier) very good guiding. The chosen route is very good for a group like ours with many without experience about Sri Lanka and the birds. DOF travel will continue to use WWJ.

Hello Prasanjith

Thanks for your greetings
Now we are back in a snow-covered Denmark.

I have written this in Danish:

Kirsten og jeg havde en fantastisk fin tur til Sri Lanka med Walk with Jith. Udover mange fugle, som bl.a. omfattede næsten alle de endemiske arter, så vi leopard, blåhval, havskildpadder, der lagde æg på stranden, brydes hval, spinnerdelfiner, flyvende hunde i tusindvis og meget mere.  Rundrejsen blev afviklet i et afslappet tempo, da der var god tid ved lokaliteterne - og når vi skulle videre, sørgede vores chauffør og guide, Senerath, for at fragte os trygt fra sted til sted i sin nye og næsten lydløse Toyota. Hele arrangementet klappede til punkt og prikke, og virkede meget gennemtænkt og vel planlagt.

Turen, der blev gennemført i samarbejde med fugle- og naturguider fra det lokale firma WalkWithJith, blev en ubetinget succes. Ejeren af firmaet Jith blev sekunderet af den ligeledes rutinerede guide Upali, så vi var godt dækket ind. De to guider, ofte hjulpet af andre lokale guider, gjorde et stort arbejde, og det lykkedes da også for dem at vise os samtlige 33 endemiske fuglearter, som findes på øen.

Hiring a local tour operator over a big international company - fully up to what I wanted

Walk With Jith lived fully up to what I wanted and hoped for when Hiring the services of a local agency instead of a group tour by a big international company. It's very adopted to personal needs, great flexibility and a very nice, competed and hum ---th guide. Walk With Jith also was very helpful in organizing just tour --ti miles with other operators which is very important for an individual traveler as me. Thanks for very good memories and my ---- recommendations to other potential travelers.

My wife and I have just been on an intensive 15-day bird watching in Sri Lanka by the company "WalkWithJith" (www.walkwithjith.com.) We had over birds peeping also 3 days with cultural insights, however, it was possible to have binoculars with all locations. The trip was very well organized and we were lucky with good weather and many birds. Thus it was possible to see all the endemic species. We were fortunate to have an excellent guide in addition to the birds could mammals, butterflies, dragonflies, botany and cultural history at your fingertips. We arranged themselves the trip and booked flights with Emirates. I highly recommend WalkWithJith for the well-developed program where all clapped to the smallest detail.

Had such a successful trip; we were immediately thinking of a second trip also!

Dear Prasanjith Caldera,

First of all my wife and I would like to thank you and team for the great holiday you have done for us. We can and will strong recommend a birding watching trip to Sri Lanka with WalkWithJith. Already Sunday evening I will be together with other Danish Birdwatchers and I will strongly recommend you.
Allow me to highlight few points which has been important for the success:

- During the planning process you have been very fast in responding and following-up. This gives confidence as we don´t know each other.

- For me it has also been crucial that you have prepared a transparent and clear programme. It made a decision quiet easy.
