1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Sri Lanka is a most beautiful and exciting country. We were amazed by the variety and depth of what we were able to see during our time in Sri Lanka.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Know that your driver/guide might not be great at English (ours wasn't) and it will therefore be difficult to communicate. Do your own research before you go, because your guide is more of a driver than a guide.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, local people were supported and benefited. Some of the hotels, however, used lots and lots of plastic bottles and not reusable containers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent!

Many thanks for your wonderful review and the valuable recommendations. I am really happy to hear that you have enjoyed your vacation. I shared your valuable comments and recommendations with the tour operation crew as well. I highly appreciate all your feedback, and we will carefully check all the details through with our team so that we can avoid similar problems in the future! Our ultimate purpose is to minimize the negative impacts to the environment. We strive to ensure that all our travelers from 2020 do not use disposable plastic bottles at our destination. We started to convince accommodations to have refill stations available and it will take a little time to be implemented.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Diversity of experiences and geography

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be flexible and open. Don't have set expectations. Accomodations, food, and experiences were variable.... sometimes good, sometimes adequate, occasionally poor.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

No... didn't really experience this apart from a Prius Hybrid car being used. Driver / guide didn't seem aware of trying to reduce plastic or ethical animal practises.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

it was okay. Having travelled in small groups in several other Asian we did not believe this trip offered value for money. We travelled at peak (Christmas) time which was incredibly busy which may have limited accomodation options and meant that many of the sites were crowded with both locals and tourists. However we had great weather at this time of year.

Thank you very much for your comments and we appreciate you for bringing us your genuine feelings towards the environment by your comments. We're glad to say you that the reusable glass bottles will be started to use for our tours within a couple of weeks and we hope it will be a good solution to reduce plastic usage. Thank you once again, the comments that you have shared with us! We highly appreciate all the feedback that enables us to maintain the high standards of our services. All the best wishes, and enjoy your next travel with Responsible Travel!
