God Bless Chamil as he really made our time a great experience!

26 Dec 2019

We came to Sri Lanka for the 03rd time with the aim of bird watching. We used Walk With Jith as he is very reliable and trusted tour operator. The driver has always been experienced and quick to spot and identify all species of birds and mammals.   

Sure we will use this service in near future. Their understanding of our needs and requirements are best which makes the vacation seamless and a pleasant. 

Thank you again and we will be back.

Well organized program and everything worked very smoothly. Excellent guide, very knowledgeable and a good and safe driver of the car. We will highly recommend him.

Nice hotels in good areas well located, no disturbances during the night. Food good especially Sri Lankan food, we even got spicy food (as we like)

A little bit moist cold in our hotel room; Hill Pride Hotel, Nuwara Eliya (no heating system). Insight hotel was bit too touristic for our taste. (beach hotel last night of the trip) 

Leech socks excellent present.

I guess that coming back to Sri Lanka, just 15 months after my first visit speaks volume about the place…. But the main reason I came back was that I didn’t visit the highlands on my first visit. So needed the last 4 endemics plus Bay Owl … And better view of the “bloody” Starling!!

My expert and friendly guide Thilina is simply the best birder if you want if you want to see things quickly and well… My second time with him also… 100% satisfaction guaranteed if you book him through WALK WITH JITH!!

Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Moths Mammals, and a great time with a great person…My sincere thanks THILY – you are the best – Thanks for my BAY OWL and especially for that “Bloody” Starling.

Kindest Regards

It was a great tour with Jith. The logistics, transport, accommodation and places we visited were excellent.

Our guide Hetti was able to find us all the endemics, and the rare wintering birds. I do highly recommend “Walk With Jith” and Sri Lanka in general. You had the best price and fast response.

His experience proved invaluable, especially when it comes to recognizing calls.

30 Nov 2019

A very intensive but ultimately successful tour, despite poor weather in Nuwara Eliya area. Hetti and the driver Indunil (who doubled up as a bird- spotter) worked very hard to make sure I saw as many of my targets as possible. His experience proved invaluable, especially when it comes to recognizing calls.  I usually know what I am looking at, but often not what I am hearing. So I am sure that had I been on my own, I would not have seen half of what I did.

Not suitable to bird in December. Rain most of the time. Thili is very hardworking and knowledgeable in bird and bird calls. Highly recommended to come birding again.

Thank you

Athula - amazing birder, excellent eyes and hearing, recommended

26 Nov 2019

Hi Jith, Firstly I would like to thank you for organizing a great birding and wildlife tour for me. I have given some written feedback to Athula for you but I guess I wanted to summarize my thought to you in an email.
In total I was able to see in excess of 180 birds and I realize that my focus was on the target birds I have not seen rather than seeking higher number of species. I am glad I was persuaded to change the plan from Bundala to Lunugamverah? as I had fantastic views of a leopard which I had not expected or hoped for.

You have earned our trust as a company - 5th year touring

As usual the whole experience from booking, discussing the itinerary, agreeing the standard of accommodation, provide the right standard of guide, the most beneficial transport and the length of stay at the destinations resulted in a smooth and worry free relaxing holiday. You have earned our trust as a company. Thank you!

Iain Maidment and Upali

Overall a very well planned tour: Upali was knowledgeable and patient as out guide. Although there was a lot of time on the road (often wind and bumpy). He drove carefully and there was time to stop when we needed or something of interest.

Kitulgala was a good place to start and although it rained some of the time, we were able to see a lot of birds. Kaudulla park was excellent both for the elephants and Roller birds and Bee-eaters.   

We enjoyed the cultural triangle, particularly Polonnaruwa (close up views of birds as well as the ruins) and Dambulla cave temple. Kandy was also enjoyable although the train ride was less scenic than expected. Horton plains was one of the highlights.

Tissamaharama and the nearby wetlands were also amazing, although there wasn’t a lot to see at Bundala park (no migrants).
