Words alone cannot describe this incredible tour to see all endemic birds of Sri Lanka. It was extremely well planned and organized and capable to adapt to each situation or requirements. The accommodation was of good quality and very well located. Our bird guide, Saman, did an excellent work, with the help of local people and co-workers of Walk With Jith, that ensured amazing views of some of the most difficult species to get. His knowledge of Sri Lanka wildlife, with mammals, reptiles, and butterflies enriched an already worth trip.

I just can say a big thank you!

Sri Lanka is a magical, varied, colorful and charming country. The cultural, historical and natural heritage is worth to discover. The variety of landscapes and natural environment is overwhelming, beaches, rainforests, national parks with an exceptional fauna, impressive forests and diversity of birds and vegetation that we had never seen before much of it endemic.     

Hetti has been an excellent guide and also an extraordinary travel companion.  He has dealt with all the details and has taken care of us in every aspect. The most notable thing is that he has been able to transmit us his broad knowledge of the environment and above all, his passion of birds. For us it has been totally enriching and a great learning. (He is an excellent master of ornithology)

Dear All,

It has been a wonderful trip. We have spent great 20 days with a good and balanced combination at wildlife, nature, culture and leisure. We really enjoyed your country.

Our guide Hetty was always helpful and kind trying to make our vacations as easy as possible. Special thanks to him and to all staff. Nalin is a great helper, always ready to help. The driver Suranga very prudent and carefully. We were feeling very safe with him on the roads.

Same suggestions for the next families: please advise customers that doing a one-day safari is really exhausting. Parks are not well preparing with areas to rest enough. Better suggest 2 game drives even it increasing budget.

It has been a good selection of the hotels. Some of them very very pleasant with the exception of the last one. We understand however that options are more limited in this area.

All in all it has been a wonderful trip that we will keep in our memories long time.

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.

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.
