Reviews for Sri Lanka family adventure holiday


review 5 Oct 2018

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

There were so many memorable experiences on our holiday - white water rafting to the set of the Bridge on the the River Kwai, watching the sun rise from Little Adam's Peak outside Ella, the train journey from Ella to Nanuoya, climbing Lion Rock at Sigiriya early in the morning, scuba diving for the first time at Pasikuda - but the stand-out one has to be seeing hundreds of elephants, including many babies, at Kaudulla, because we hadn't planned it, but our driver recommended it and the guide knew exactly where the elephants were that day.

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

Don't try to do too much, or take longer over it. There is so much to do and see, so it's easy to get carried away.

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

It's great to feel that more of our spending went straight to locals, rather than into the pockets of UK-based holiday companies. Not sure about the environmental impact of being driven everywhere in a Toyota Hiace, though.

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

Despite being caught up in some monsoon downpours, it was a wonderful experience, with such welcoming people everywhere we went.
