    Hi Beverley thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we are so pleased you joined us in Sri Lanka! We will be in touch with our Sri Lanka team in regards to your comments about your Tour Guide, it is disappointing to hear you felt he was not interested in conversation, he usually gets very high reviews about his passion for his country. Thank you again for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to see you on another trip in the future!
