From the first contact with Usiru from the local Expert through Travel Local we were aware of how well they know their business. Usiru was well versed, listened to our wishes and turned them into the greatest itinery of all. Every question we had was replied to very quickly and gave us confidence to book the tour. As we are used to arranging our own holidays, this was the first time ever we gave it out of our hands and we were not disappointed. Quite the opposite!! Travelling in a time of a pandemic seemed stressful as it is, but Usiru's e-mails with all the details of the paperwork needed with links and a step-by-step guide of what to do when was an overall winner. Especially since we noticed at the airport that 8 out of 10 travellers was not having the correct paperwork to enter. we were thankful :) The tour itself was absolutely amazing - we have no words to describe how great it was. Our tourguide/naturalist Mahinda made it all the better with his knowledge of Sri Lanka and its wildlife, especially the birds. Everything was arranged soundlessly for us. If there was a hitch behind the scenes, we have not noticed it, because to us all seemed sweet sailing! It was a wonderful combination of hotels, some culture and lots of wildlife, exactly as we wanted it. We had high expectations and they were definitely met and even bettered. Nothing but praise for Usiru, Mahinda and the local Expert - we are very happy customers! :)
From the our first contact with the local Expert we were given an itinerary that interested us. The first impression was really good, and we only tweaked the original a little bit. Usiru was amazingly quick to respond to any enquiries, no matter how small.
Nothing comes to mind, we can't fault them for anything.
Our guide Mahinda was an amazing asset on this trip, arranging all local things quickly and efficiently and his knowledge is unbelievable. He took us to some of the best lunch locations and we learned a lot about Sri Lanka, its wildlife and especially the birds. We had an amazing time with him!
GO GO GO!!! Travelling Sri Lanka was amazing. The people are very friendly and helpful, the country is beautiful. We loved every aspect of it.
Seeing our first ever sloth bear. Although there are many other moments that are close to the top spot too.
