Reviewed on 27 Aug 2019 by Andrew LawsonIf forced to select only one distinct memory, then it has to be the people of Sri Lanka. They are so warm, welcoming and happy to help. Read full review
Reviewed on 06 Aug 2019 by Tina AntillThe vacation was excellent. The country is very beautiful and small enough to see a lot in 2 weeks. People are very friendly and having English spoken and on signage everywhere helps. We enjoyed the balance of wildlife, culture, walking and R&R. Read full review

Reviewed on 05 Oct 2018 by Mikkel BatesThere were so many memorable experiences on our vacation...but the stand-out one has to be seeing hundreds of elephants, including many babies, at Kaudulla, because we hadn't planned it, but our driver recommended it and the guide knew exactly where the elephants were that day.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe love our planet. Our philosophy is that the vacation you take shouldn’t be at the cost of the environment. A commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism is part of our DNA and your vacation will be designed with this in mind. Our local partners are very well informed about the standards we have set and we ensure that they closely adhere to them. Our responsible tourism promise aims to ‘ creates better places for people to live in, and better places to visit’. Environment and sustainability is high on our list of concerns. We take pride in the achievement of a healthy balance between environment, local people and YOU, the tourist.
Visits to nature reserves and national parks are popular among vacationmakers to Sri Lanka. We give instructions to both our clients and guides on how to minimise impact on environment disturbance to the wildlife. During this tour you will have a chance to visit Yala National Park and also Ritigala Strict Nature Reserve. Purchasing tickets to these places helps financially to conserve the environment. These places depends on tourism and therefore flora and founa have to be maintained. We work with guides that are aware of environmental issues of the places, including elephant-human conflicts. They instruct our clients how to behave to not disturb the natural environment.
Your visit to Anuradhapura you will involve a bicycle tour which is a carbon-free method of exploring. White water rafting activity will also will be completely carbon-free method of exploring!
We offer many opportunities for our clients to experience what the ‘real’ Sri Lanka is:

We provides more enjoyable experiences for tourists through more meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues.
One important area for sustainable tourism that we wish to highlight is ‘tea and spices’. Tea and spices are often purchased by tourists in Sri Lanka and taken home as a gift for friends or family. In our tours around Sri Lanka we encourage our clients to visit fairly-traded and organic tea and spices plantations. We also inform and advice our clients where they can buy products that have been fairly-traded.
You have to try a king coconut drink! It is the best refreshment while traveling in and about Sri Lanka. It is always cool, and refreshing. It is full of minerals. Most importantly, this small purchase will contribute to the small local businesses. We encourage our clients to eat at least one meal per day in local restaurants. This is beneficial for both local businesses and for tourists. Local businesses will gain the economic benefits through income and tourist will get unforgettable experience by interacting with local people.
On this tour you have the option to a stay with a local family. This is a great opportunity to learn about the country. You can learn how to make traditional rice and curry from the locals!

You will have an opportunity to visit local village where you can purchase craft and art directly from the craft man. You will also have many chances to try delicious, traditional food from small restaurants. Local communities will greatly benefit from the income. Local economy will also benefit as products are grown locally.
When visiting Kandy you will see a cultural show. The income from the ticket sale help to preserve local traditions and culture alive.
During this tour you will have a chance to visit tea plantations and spice gardens where you can buy the products directly cutting middle man and giving better income for farmers.
Visiting temples will help you to understand local traditions, culture and religion. Having knowledge about these will help you to understand and respect their life. We inform our clients about local culture, customs, how to behave, and what to wear whilst visiting places so as not to not offend local people and their culture.
When visiting attractions we will use a local guides. They are self educated guides who depend on tourism financially.
We use many small, locally own accommodations. You will support communities by staying in these places.
