Sri Lanka's Adventurous North by Joyce T, 12 Mar 2019

A wonderful Sri Lankan experience.

We spent 20 days including flights travelling around Sri Lanka with a chauffeur guide. We stayed in eight boutique hotels, all different but all with special features. The staff were welcoming and charming. We thought the scenery was stunning and so varied. We visited so many ancient sites to see stupas and temples, we watched ceremonies, saw elephants by the roadside, tasted delicious food, lazed by several pools, climbed so many steps, saw ...

The staff were welcoming and charming. We thought the scenery was stunning and so varied. We visited so many ancient sites to see stupas and temples, we watched ceremonies, saw elephants by the roadside, tasted delicious food, lazed by several pools, climbed so many steps, saw so much colour, took hundreds of photos. A holiday to remember.

Experience Travel has staff who really get to know their clients wishes and requirements. The holiday is completely tailored for you and can be adapted on a daily basis. Nothing is too much trouble. We were aware that behind the scenes a lot of planning had ensured that we received a seamless package of delight.

Superb in Sri Lanka

A wonderful experience, well arranged by the Experience Travel Group which took into account all our plans and expectations for the country. We covered most of the country, stayed in a wide variety of hotels, had game drives in two National Parks and two interesting city tours. We learnt a lot about the country, from the effects of the long war to the crafts, skills and modern cities and really felt we had an "Experience" rather than just ...

Rating for tour operator:

Experience Travel Group went to much effort to put together a varied, interesting and inclusive itinerary for us and took into account our likes and preferences. We had an outstanding driver/guide for whom nothing was too much trouble and superb "in country" support. Highly recommended.

Tour of north and eastern Sri Lanka

Our second trip to Sri Lanka but to areas we had not visited before. We wanted to include the Jaffna peninsula and the unspoilt east coast.

Rating for tour operator:

Our travel consultant was very knowledgeable and came up with an interesting itinerary which covered the ideas we had and more. Our driver guide was superb, hotel choices excellent and would recommend this company to other holiday makers.

Dear John,

That's really great to hear - we really enjoy arranging trips to Jaffna - and other areas less well known in Sri Lanka.
Do please recommend us to other - word of mouth referrals are the way we grow our business.

Kind regards,
