We aspire to turn your “Dream Quest” into a rejuvenating reality

Peter & Julie

We are now getting back to reality after the most wonderful trip to Sri Lanka. Everything worked without a hitch from the moment that we were met at the airport by Upul who turned out to be a quite exceptional driver / guide / companion. He was extremely knowledgeable about so many aspects, from archaeological sites to birds to the island economy etc and gave us such a good introduction to the island and the life and customs of the people. He also seemed to know everyone in Sri Lanka, including parking attendants in busy markets when we needed a parking space.

In general, we found everyone to be so calm, courteous and welcoming wherever we went. With one exception (the final Rainforest Lodge in Sinharaja) the hotels were close to ideal, with beautiful settings, extremely comfortable accommodation and good food. The setting is spectacular but it is very remote and getting there is an exhausting drive. I would recommend it only to those really interested in the rainforest.

In every other respect the trip was hugely successful. The monuments at Anaradhapura and Polonnaruwa were fascinating and very impressive, although what impressed us most were the huge tanks and the water management systems. We loved the national parks and managed by the end to identify more than 130 bird species with very good, close views of elephants. It was one of the most successful holidays we have ever had, so thank you so much for all that you did to set up the holiday for us. We hope that we shall get the chance to go back and to explore more of the south of the island.

All good wishes Peter & Julie
