Reviews for Sri Lanka vacation, culture & relaxation


review 21 May 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Difficult question because there were so many memorable things.... all the beautiful scenery, the amazing history and the wonderful people (especially Buwaneka Dissanayake our very lovely and exceptionally knowledgeable tour guide). We had a cookery class with Rangit at 'My Village Cooking Class' in Ella that we all thoroughly enjoyed, Ranjit was brilliant. The jeep Safari at Udawalawe was also memorable because the driver/guide was able to spot so many small animals, reptiles and birds that we would've missed if they hadn't been pointed out, he made the safari exciting. We saw a Crocodile, a Crested Eagle, a Tortoise, Mongoose, Kingfishers and Bee eaters, just some of the many creatures.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Trust your guide and chat about what you'd like to see and do on your vacation, the guides employed by the company are all qualified and registered, they are very knowledgeable and quickly get to know your likes and dislikes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we felt that we were helping to support local people, the current troubles in Sri Lanka are affecting everyone badly but the Sri Lankan people remained very kind, helpful and pleased to make our vacation the best.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Definitely five stars for this vacation, many thanks to team Responsible Travel. With just a few given details of the type of vacations we enjoy a rough itinerary was swiftly made and within a short time and a few emails we had everything organised and completed for us. Nothing was too much trouble. We'd use this company again without a doubt.
