    Most importantly Wilpattu is less crowded than other national parks in Sri lanka. I had been to most of the national parks here but this was far better. Many animals were seen with a leopard mother with two cubs, elephant, samber and spotted deer, crocodile, buffalo and numerous birds which I do not know the exact names of. Monkeys in the rest area steal anything from you. Be aware. The Jeep driver assisted us to spot more animals, he was very experienced and knew all the routes inside out. Quite hotter than we expected so suggest you all to bring some sunscreen and hats.

    I had a great experience. The staff was very competent and did everything they could.
    I think the prices are very high but, after trying 3 different companies, I would definitely go again with this one if I return to Sri Lanka.

    We were picked up from our accommodation, which was a little further away, by a tuk-tuk. We therefore agreed a pick-up fee with the organiser, which was totally fair. This was solely due to our accommodation and normally the pick-up service in the surrounding area is included in the price.
    When we arrived, we got straight into the motorboat, we were the only ones as it is a private tour. The two drivers were super friendly and as soon as something was in sight, they accelerated to get close to it quickly. We saw lots of dolphins in our immediate vicinity very early on. And luckily for us, we even saw a whale. As the other tours were probably not so successful, they were contacted by our guide and also travelled to our spot. I have to say, we had great guides.
    When we were back near the coast, we had bananas, delicious biscuits and water.
    I can highly recommend the tour. We came without any expectations and saw more than we thought we would. Of course, it always depends on how lucky you are ;)

    We started the ride around o'clock. My local guide Ruwan, managed to drop me to the beach from my hotel. Our boat rider got info from other boats, and honest with us-told us he isn't sure about the whales and promised on dolphins. It was really nice ride around beautiful Trincomalee beach. May be after 15 min. we were lucky to see 10-15 large group of dolphins. They were all around the boat and amazing experience. As the rider said we couldn't see any whales, but still it was really worth tour. had lot of fun.

    From the time the team picked us up form the airport till the time they dropped us back we had no issues at all what so ever. Our driver Indika took good care of us and brought us to all the places that we wanted to go to and even stayed with us to make sure that nothing happened, he was not only our driver but our guide as well. Both my husband and I were completely happy with our hassle free holiday and the perfect service !!!

    We were a group of three females. We were absolutely delighted with Sujeewa. He behaved in a very professional manner, and arranged a variety of tours and hotels over a period of 2 weeks. The trips were all well-organised and the hotels were nice and clean. We felt safe and well taken care of at all times. We had an amazing time in Sri Lanka and at the end of the trip, we felt as if he was part of our family. Highly recommended!!!

    It was our first time here in Sri Lanka , Ishan was our driver during the trip in Sri Lanka. My good friend and I are both from Singapore and in our late 20’s. We had planned out our itinerary for a total of 9 days, however it was relatively disorganised when we sent it to ishan and he was really kind enough to re-organise our itinerary so we would be able to travel in a more efficient manner. We arrived in Sri Lanka and met ishan on the first day at our apartment , he was on time , car was impeccably clean and comfortable.

    Ishan was skilled in his driving that we were able to catch forty winks during the long car journey.
    We were able to visit all the places like sirigiya lion fortress rock , elephant safari , trincomalee for diving ,Adam’s peak , Ella , Mirissa , snorkeling at hikkaduwa , turtle beach and many more on our list.

    Ishan is extremely knowledgeable about each region and wouldn’t hesitate to impart his knowledge about the history of each of the place that we were going to visit. He was also resourceful and has many useful contacts to get a competitive price for the activities that we wished to participate in.

    Ishan was very patient with us as both my friend and I love animals and would go the extra mile to feed the animals.

    Ishan accommodated to our itinerary of visiting the dog clinic which we had planned out in our itinerary.He was also able to introduce to us to a wide array of local Sri Lankan food , despite my friend having dietary restrictions.

    there was a also day that our hotel got cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances and ishan was quick to find another hotel within our budget .
    the hotels were really clean , comfortable and most of all value for money . Will highly recommend, and would definitely be a repeated customer.

    In January 2024 we made a 17 day tour starting at the airport of Negombo, and then via Mannar to Wilpattu, Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Kandy, Kitulgala, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Udawalawe, Sinharaja and finally Weligama. Our first contact was with Jay, who was one of the few people responding to our first offer request who actually took the time to answer our questions (and in excellent English). Also when the agreement was made he was always available to help with our (many..) questions.

    Our driver was Mahinda, who picked us up at the airport with a Toyota Prius. A comfortable car that was big enough for all our luggage (we were only two people but carried around at least twice as much as normal people). One thing to keep in mind is that like most sedans, the ceiling on the back seat is quite low if you're somewhat tall (1,90 m). The car was modern and equiped with seat belts, and Mahinda made sure it remained clean. He was always punctual (even though we were late most of the time), always friendly and flexible to adjust the schedule if we asked for it. Furtermore he is just a fun, friendly guy with a generous smile, we felt comfortable really quickly.

    Traffic in Sri Lanka is a bit chaotic, especially with busses overtaking everywhere at high speed and the constant zigzagging between dogs that are laying and walking on the streets. Mahinda, a former lorry driver, showed his experience and although he drove fast (within limits) we never felt unsafe. No unnecessary risks while overtaking and alert on traffic coming from all directions.

    In the meantime Mahinda still helped us look for anything along the road. Fruit stands that sold the fruits we like, good local restaurants, special animals, coconuts, and the regular stuff like ATM's and grocery stores. Mahinda was in general very helpful by the way, also helping us with our luggage, making sure we wouldn't pay too much for souvenirs, tours and food, booking tours for us and even taking pictures of us.

    This was the first time we had a driver on vacation, normally we drive ourselves. We were a bit afraid that having a driver would mean less privacy or freedom, but we did not regret it for a moment. Mahinda always kept his distance unless we asked otherwise, and was always genuinely patient so we never felt rushed. Besides that, it was really comfortable to be able to get in a car after an early sunrise hike and relax until the next stop. We could not have expected it to be as pleasant as it turned out to be with Mahinda though, when we parted in the end it felt like saying goodbye to a friend. No matter what your plans are, I promise you that your vacation will be better with Mahinda as your driver (and the support of Jay of course).
