Reviews for Sri Lanka holiday, wild escapes


review 28 Nov 2015

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

Rainforest, elephants and monkeys

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

Avoid kandy for any more than one night. Stay longer at the rainforest. Don't stay at the citrus...alledgelly a superior room. Not! Take your paperwork with you so you can prove what you have booked as this happened 4 times. Be firm with your driver and not to be taken to mates places! Also avoid spice plantation...rip off

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

Not really. The amount of miles we did in the car was underestimated by the itinerary. Local people are employed in the tourism business...and they just want money. There was no encouragement of local peoples well being. Environmentally there was support esp conservation, however not sure how true it was.

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

enjoyed it, but could have been much better by attention to details....better organisation...swap one night in kandy to an additional night in the rainforest and not bother with nuweva elliya....and go to Ella instead.
