    5.0 - Excellent

    The North east explorer was certainly worth the journey - the disappointment was that half way through the trip 2 trips combined ... sadly there were then 25 people on a huge bus ... the trip lost a lot of its appeal. The buffet was tiresome but a necessity as in some cases there was not enough opportunity to explore by ourselves as the hotel was located too far from the township.

    5.0 - Excellent

    Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful places I've visited and this tour was so valuable in showing me those amazing places. The destinations we visited took my breath away and Anuradhapura was certainly a highlight for me. Everything ran extremely smoothly on this tour and our guide was fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour if you really want to see everything that Sri Lanka has to offer.

    4.5 - Excellent

    Great but only problem was having to join a large group when we had been six, and we expected a small tour of 16-18 as we had been told at time of booking.

    Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
