My wife and I have spent a week with Athula and its been amazing. Sri Lanka is a beautiful Country but without Athula as our guide, we wouldn't have learn’t half as much as we have and it wouldn't have been as easy to get around and see everything we have seen.

The suggested hotels have been great with some great locations and the itinerary that was put together for us has been excellent for us. We’ve enjoyed the adventure that Sri Lanka has offered with the luxury element that walkwithjith provides organizing the trip was easy with jith. Hes got great knowledge and was always fast to reply or change elements of the plan for us.

Thank you for an awesome Honeymoon experience Jith and Athula.

In depth, encyclopedic knowledge of birds and wildlife--Hetti and Dhammika’

Hetti and Dhammika have been so knowledgeable, helpful and we couldn’t have hoped for two friendlier people to guide our tour.

We were so impressed with their in depth, encyclopedic knowledge of birds and wildlife. Hetti and Dhammika’s enthusiasm was infectious and it was so evident that they love their subject and were so happy to share their knowledge. They always made us feel safe while navigating some very challenging drives. They were always so kind, helpful and cheerful. Hetti and Dhammika were very adaptable to our changing needs.

Enjoyed a superb endemics focused week with Thilina. Hes a fantastic birder and lovely man. Not only did he somehow find me all the target species in six days but he really made sure I was enjoying my time in Sri Lanka.

Wide variety of habitats, great overview of the bird life

We would like to thank you for a fabulous three-week tour of Sri Lanka covering both bird watching and cultural activities. One of the strengths has been the wide variety of habitats we have visited, giving us a great overview of the bird life of Sri Lanka. As the result of the skill and knowledge of our guide, we have seen the majority of the endemics. However, one of the highlights must be our unexpected spotting of a Loris in Sinharaja forest.

We have stayed in a variety of different accommodation, which have all been in stunning locations, from basic motels to colonial bungalows. The standard of these has been at least good. We would like to thank you and your team for a well-organized and well balanced program.

Take a look at there Photo Book here:

Bookings, itinerary, airport reception all very good.

All hotels very good except hotel “Leisure Village” hotel, Nuwara Eliya. Much below standard for our company clients. Must be better standard in future.

For us, the full day at Yala National Park was too long. Emphasis for us – perhaps OK for others.

Vehicle always clean, comfortable and felt safe.

Chamil our guide; outstanding hearing, high knowledge of fauna !

Thank you for a very good birding experience in southern part of Sri Lanka.
My driver, Chamil Uddika, I s a very good driver and not least birder. His capability to hear one, was outstanding. He also has very good knowledge over birds and all other animals that crossed over the road.

We had three different accommodations. All of them were to my satisfaction. You can’t expect too much when living in countryside, but they were shaming motel’s with a very friendly and helpful staff. They fully covered my needs.

I will not have any problem with recommending this tour to other birders.

I have never had a guide so good

I will email my full appraisal with photographs upon my return to home. But I would like to say this. I have never had a guide so good. So friendly, so dedicated and so nice Thilina. He is an absolute credit to Walk With Jith. We will be walking again soon. Thank you so much Paul and Olga.

Best birding I have ever done

11 Jul 2018

Birding with Walk With Jith has been the best birding I have ever done. My birding tour guide was Upali. He could not have been better. Not just on the birds, but the mammals, plants, trees, butterflies. Also the history of Sri Lanka. He found all 33 endemics which was great. I will not hesitate to come back. So a Big no. A very big thank you to Jith. Upali and all – all the best.
