As a widely world travelled explorer of over 35 years I can say this tour has been one of my very best experiences. Be aware this is an extensive and varied tour itinerary but that is exactly what I wanted as I was time limited to take in as much sightseeing and activities as possible. I experienced so much of Srilanka’s rich culture, heritage, incredible wildlife, stunning landscapes , streetscenes, tasty cuisine and was able to frequently interact leisurely with the islands wonderfully friendly gentle folk. My tour guide Sanjeewa Padmal was excellent...very knowledgable, professional, friendly, highly articulate in English, good company and drove extremely safely in an air-conditioned large sized modern saloon. The overnight hotel was luxury standard with a beachfront. What I especially liked was Sanjeewa’s keenness for me to enjoy the tour and leaving me to decide on the time spent on each iternary event. This is the first time I’ve used GetYourGuide. Highly recommended.
AMAZING! We couldnt have asked for more in a day. Our first spot was Bentota beach for some adventure sports. We were so lucky to spot a crocodile resting on the shores of the river while we went speed boating. Next we stopped at the turtle conservation centre and learned about turtles and were lucky enough to meet some newly born turtles. From there we headed for the Madu river boat ride. The river safari was adventurous and lots of fun. Next and the last stop was Galle Fort. Loved every second spent in this beautiful UNESCO heritage site. Overall super satisfying experience. Loved each bit of it. Aarun was the best guide we could have asked for. 5 stars for the whole tour.
The boat was uncomfortable and over-packed, the breakfast awful, but boy did we see what we came for! We saw several dolphins swimming next to the boat and after 7 hours of searching we saw a fin whale, which we followed until it breached completely out of the water - the guides said it was the first time they had seen a whale breach in 1.5 years.
we’ve been a bit unlucky at first because we hardly saw anything during the first hours but the crew made sure that we went home with something. There were many dolphins, a fin whale and a very rare whale shark so we were all cheered up! Also, we were cuddled with breakfast and fresh fruits throughout the trip.
Our guide Jeev was amazing. I actually enjoyed interacting with the guide more than the excursions. As far as the excursions we enjoyed the boat tour. It was informative and interesting. We also enjoyed the restaurant that the guide chose to eat lunch. Mama Coral Reef.
