Fantastic holiday

A wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka, friendly people, great food and stunning scenery. We were surprised how clean the country is and loved the diversity of activities within manageable distances.

What was good about our local partner in Sri Lanka?

We had researched where we would like to go and Shernela put the trip together for us. We decided that we didn’t want to stay in five star hotels and TravelLcoal's local partner provided a variety of interesting hotels, two of which were in the jungle. Throughout the process Shernela was in constant touch, replying to our enquires and reassuring us if there were any anxieties. Whilst we were in Sri Lanka, Shernela phoned us three times to make sure that all was well. An excellent service.

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

Our driver was extremely competent and we felt very safe. He was also an avid bird watcher and taught us a great deal about birds on our safari. I wasn’t always able to understand what he said but that might have been my fault as I had a problem with my ear.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Sri Lanka?

Don’t drive yourself, tuk tuks are all over the place, never sure where they are going to appear from next! Research where you would like to go and be clear on the kind of accommodation that you would like.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

The scenery around Ella and the safari in Udawalla, I couldn’t believe how close we were to the elephants! I loved Sri Lanka.
