What people are saying about Southern Province, Sri Lanka

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.

Great experience!

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!!
