We have enjoyed four previous
We have enjoyed four previous tours with Watching Lanka and we had been searching for a high quality, small group tour of Sri Lanka. Thus, when Watching Lanka offered the Exploring Udawalawa tour, we booked without hesitation. The main tour guide was Dinesh with whom we had toured twice before and whom we admired for all the reasons you get to “love” a fine tour guide. As usual with Watching Lanka the itinerary was varied and interesting. The food was always excellent and abundant. The accommodation was all very fine and, more importantly, uniquely charming – highlights of the trip in and of themselves. Our local guide was Nadun and she proved to be as knowledgeable and as caring and considerate as Heinrich. One could not possibly ask for two more wonderful tour guides. People who choose Watching Lanka archaeology-focused tours may be seen as at least a somewhat self-selected group and, thus, it is small wonder that our group was a “success” from the start – we met wonderful people, made new friends, and had fun exploring Sri Lanka with them. All or most of us were “alumni” of one or more previous Watching Lanka tours and that says a lot about the quality of the tours.
