Our trip was a fantastic experience, we have been so impressed by both Travel Local and their local team. Our itinerary was a perfect balance of activity and relaxation and was exactly what we asked for. We found the whole process easy and any questions we had were quickly resolved. The high point, of many, was the Homestay and cooking course. We really felt that overall we saw the "real" Sri Lanka.
We found the balance between relaxation and activity just right and our itinerary was exactly what we asked for. Eshani was most helpful. Our driver, Kosala, was wonderful and we could not have managed without him. The accommodation was mostly excellent, especially Camellia at Habarana and the Homestay at Kandy.
Our only disappointment was Hideaway Retreat at Ella. Although the staff could not have tried harder, the attention to detail was poor and we felt the management was at fault.
Kosala was amazing and looked after us so well. His knowledge and resourcefulness made the holiday much easier for us. All our guides were good.
Do a homestay!
