Responsible tourism: Luxury culture vacation in Sri Lanka

Environment

We try to choose best eco friendly accommodation possible for our visitors. In every possible situation we use the best fuel efficient, least carbon footprint vehicles. These are usually latest vehicle models.

We organize birdwatching educational walks for primary and secondary school students, free of charge. Where we spread the word about conservation, ecology as well as sustainable and responsible tourism.

We maintain a dialog with our local guides and people about conservation and environmental responsibility. We strongly believe that this leads to conserving the biospheres they interact with.

Community

We buy the service of locals who are trained as guides, trackers, cooks, stewards & etc. The hotels that we go to employ locals. Visitors are encouraged to buy craft products straight from the village craftsperson. We are not a large-scale venture and we will not promote commercial sales aimed at tourists. The aim of this is to improve the lives of the people in the areas that we visit and at the same time to give the visitor a high quality service.

The visitor is given the opportunity to buy quality hygienic food and beverages from villagers including native herbal drinks, traditional sweets, locally available fresh fruits & etc.

If the visitor decides to have no meat products (to avoid health risks & other reasons), we make sure that he gets quality organic vegetarian dishes.

The most memorable was visiting Anuradhapura with my excellent guide Kapil and the Buddhist Temples during Vesak Poya (one of the main Buddhist vacations celebrating the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha) with serene Sri Lankan pilgrims all dressed in white and poya lanterns lining the roads floating in the breeze - truly magical.

I booked with Jith, who helped in every way he could, to make it a great trip, in particular when we had to change flights and plan. His driver, Upali, was wonderful and made sure that my time in Sri Lanka was as good as possible. He gave me lots of information about Sri Lanka, the people, history and country. Read full review

I think the contact with the wildlife, in particular the leopard making a kill at Yala and the green turtle laying her eggs at Rewaka were particularly special. Making it up Sigiriya Rock was a personal achievement for a rather unfit late 40 something! Read full review

It is difficult to say what the most memorable or exciting part of the vacation was - for me perhaps seeing for myself the frescoes at Sigiriya and participating in a ceremony at the Tooth palace were the highlights. Read full review

Quite simply we had a fantastic time. We benefited greatly from the fact that we had booked with a small local company rather than a large tour operator. Jith acted as our personal guide, looking after us brilliantly throughout and always concerned to ensure that everything was just right for us on our honeymoon. Read full review

The vacation was amazing - I would give it 5 stars. My advice to other travelers would be to book with this operator, particularly if you have an interest in birds or wildlife, which is his passion. Read full review
