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.
The tour was everything I had expected and envisioned it to be - we had a very friendly and knowledgeable guide, who explained to us certain histories and information about the places we passed, or was going to. He made sure we were well settled into our hotel for the night, and was ready to help us at any of the other excursions. I really enjoyed the river cruise - as I did not know what to expect, and saw the amazing wildlife the mangroves had to offer us! My only complaint is that the hotel room we stayed at had very little air conditioning, and the room and bathroom smelled of mildew and other things (just a funky smell!), and thought maybe we could've asked for a room upgrade as the rooms in the main building looked a little cleaner and well maintained.
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.
Was a pleasant trip to Galle, thanks to our driver Aaron! And thanks for the new experience having a fish massage, safari river and for the natural cinnamon tea which seems to be the best medicine!! Highly recommended!!
