Beautiful and varied country with a lovely laid back and fascinating culture. The trip manages to combine a good mix of scenery, culture and history in a relaxed manner with outstanding food if you like moderately spicy curry. The logistics and transport were excellent. The hotels were superb except for one which we understand Exodus will not use in future.
Sigirya rock was both fascinating and visually impressive, helped by the fact that our tour leader organised for us to see it first thing in the morning before the crowds arrived. Candy and the temple of the Tooth were also impressive but then again so was the bike ride along the river and travelling through the tea plantations. Each day was different and interesting.
Roshan was outstanding. He was calm, assured, organised, approachable, knowledgeable, sociable, with an English sense of humour. He brought the trip to life not only explaining the history but also never afraid to discuss the challenges facing modern Sri Lanka. It was no surprise to learn is in the Exodus Hall of fame.
Watch out for small leeches on the jungle walk if it's been raining. they are harmless but it's a bit unpleasant.
Lovely country, lovely people. Trip had good variety of culture, scenery, wildlife and walking/cycling/rafting. Fairly active trip but with times to relax. Group mixed well which made the trip more enjoyable. Hotels good except at Kitulgala. Drives not too long - able to spread out in coach (driver and mate really good).
Seeing around 150-200 elephants converge at the National Park on Day 3 and watching them play and interact.
Roshan was a very experienced group leader with a great sense of humour and organisational skills.
Take good trainers/walking shoes as they are required for some of the walks. There seem to be quite a lot of 'special' days when no alcohol available.
This holiday provides a really good overview of the highlights of Sri Lanka
All three in our party had different moments: The views from Lion Rock, meeting a family at a farm and surviving the white water rafting! Plus many, many more
Sujan was excellent. He always informed us what we were doing, and made sure we had enough time to see and experience everything
It was easy enough to get money from ATMs, so travellers cheques were not needed. Most hotels also took credit cards. Be prepared to eat a lot of hotel buffets as there's not much option to eat out
The trip is very busy (especially if you do all the options), but there is also plenty of time to relax as well.
