Our trip was organised by Shernela, TravelLocal's local partner and she was just incredible with all the detail she put into our trip, everything was organised to our liking and it was nothing but perfect the whole time. We stayed in some beautiful hotels and had some beautiful rooms all down to Shernela. She rang most days on our guides phone to check how we were doing which we found lovely, we have never been looked after so well on a trip abroad. We particularly loved the local team's hotels we stayed in, they seem to have such a unique and high standard which really did stand out compared with the other hotels. All the TravelLocal's local partners were just so friendly and really could not help us enough. One part of the trip we will never forget was staying in a Treehouse at Sigriya, it was all in the open and just amazing to wake up in the morning in the middle of the jungle, we are so grateful to Shernela for suggesting this to us. We really did have the most amazing 2 week trip to Sri Lanka. We spent the first week travelling around with our TravelLocal's local guide Mr Lucky who we just fell in love with, he looked after us so well and was just so knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions and show us so much of beautiful Sri Lanka. We then had our second week relaxing on the beach but did contact our guide again for another day trip which was perfect to be able to do if we wanted to add in anything extra at the last minute. We cannot thank him enough for looking after us so well, our trip would not have been the same without such an attentive guide. We would HIGHLY recommend TravelLocal's partners, they give a first class service and Sri Lanka is a beautiful destination, we will definitely be returning.
Having a private guide dedicated to us for the duration of our trip and having Shernela to contact at head office before the trip to answer any queries we had
Nothing, we found the service from TravelLocal's local team faultless
We were so impressed with our guide, he was so knowledgeable and very attentive, always checking how we were. It was lovely to be driven around privately and in an air conditioned car.
Definitely go through TravelLocal's local partners as they are locals so know the areas and can advise where to stay and what to do at each location, they planned our trip to our liking and it was perfect
So many parts - but we loved staying in the Treehouse at Back of Beyond, it was a bit scary at night but in the morning waking up in the jungle was incredible. We also loved Nuwara Eliya in the tea plantations and particularly loved the St Andrews Hotel. We have to say out of all the places we stayed the TravelLocal partner's hotels stood out a mile for their service and their staff. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country which we would highly recommend to others.
