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.

14 in all, have told me that they truly enjoyed the trip

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!

We have made a 7 days tour in order to see the difficult birds of Wet Zone and highlands. We are a family of five, with 3 children, and we have seen 32 endemic birds with our guide Thilina.
Thilina is a very good bird watcher, he found many birds through its calling, and he take care of our family while looking for birds. He found the Serendib Scops Owl on a branch when it seemed impossible!
The places we stayed were very good and the organization was perfect. We recommend Walk With Jith for making birdwatching tours.

Saw 32 out of 33 of the endemics. Whale watching with Mirissa Water Sports was excellent!

Nandana was an excellent bird guide with a good ear for the bird calls. We saw 32 out of 33 of the endemics plus many other rare species. He worked tirelessly to locate the roosting Serendib Scops Owl and Chestnut-backed Owlet. Our trip to Yala was fantastic with 4 sightings of Leopard, including Jandana, our driver backing up the jeep to anticipate the leopard emerging to drink. Nandana fulfilled our wishes to find our own leopard rather than joining a queue of jeeps. This he did by taking us in by a different gate. 
He was also an excellent, careful and considerate driver.

This tour has fulfilled our expectations. It was intended to combine birdwatching with visits to historical / cultural sites such as Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Kandy and in bothe areas we got really satisfied. Taking into account the season (August) and the amount of time employed in non-birding activities, the final score of 181 bird species seen, including almost every Sir Lankan endemic, is most satisfactory. The skills and hard work of our guide explain much of it. We also managed to see and photograph many reptiles and mammals including two leopards, one of them at a very close range.

Throughly enjoyable and informative time

Reading through this guest book, we realized that every one has said already what we feel about our tonight with Jith & Saman. We have had a throughly enjoyable and informative time with them both, as well as a few laughs! The whole trip has been truly emorable - the birds, the lovely people, the food and the country as a whole. We won't forget and we will return.

Thank you Jith for every thing - so glad we stopped at your stand at the bird watching fair at Rutland last August. It was the beginning of a wonderful experience here Sri Lanka.
