Excellent tour and accommodations

Fraser Moodie — March 2017
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

Overall I, and the small group thought it was excellent. Only 3 of us on the tour, good guide, new bikes and really interesting routes and tourist site visits. The standout was the accommodation (and the food) - so often accommodation is cheap on these tours as the operators try to make their margins but as a group we felt the accommodation always exceeded our expectations, they were either in amazing locations, had lots of character but were always of high quality. One of the participants had been on two other tours by the operator and he rated this the best but rated them highly for the other tours he'd been on as well.

Great way to discover Sri Lanka

Alison Hallett
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

Fantastic trip, the organisation could not have been better and the guide could not have done more to make a memorable holiday. Kasun did everything he could to make the tour go smoothly, he always jumped on any problems or concerns and dealt with them straight away. VJ was always very attentive to our needs and our safety. This is a great way to discover a country and explore areas that you would not normally go to. The team were enthusiastic and helpful from the start of the holiday to the end.

Experience the Sri Lankan daily life

Allison Blechman — December 2016
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

The local knowledge of guides Chan and Chamara placed us riding along the backroads, immersed in the daily life happenings of Sri Lankans, which I doubt we would do to such an extent on our own. The close to daily stops at local tea shops were one of the highlights of the trip for sure.
