What our clients are saying about their tours of Sri Lanka
“You've got to visit Sri Lanka!”
What might be helpful is to provide a map of Sri Lanka as part of the pack. We often found ourselves looking at maps at the train stations and others, trying to track our movements on the tour, and what the terrain looked like. Leech socks were useful, and were provided by Explore. We took gaiters, because we had trouble sourcing them in Australia, and as it turned out we didn't need to take them. We would recommend that leech socks be provided by Explore as standard. (Review provided by Explore ...read more Worldwide.)
“Would recommend Explore to others.”
Really enjoyed our tip and would recommend Explore to others but maybe they need to emphasise the need to bring appropriate clothing for temple visits in the travel notes. i.e. tops that cover shoulders and bottoms that cover the knees and socks to protect feet from the hot paving. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Leech socks are definitely needed!”
Leech socks are definitely needed and were provided by the guide - if we had known this we would not have gone to the expense of buying our own. Other than that we had an amazing time and would definately recommend this trip to others. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Discovering Sri Lanka”
Sri Lanka, better known as the 'Isle of Gems', is aiming to make tourism their number one industry over the next few years and boy are they doing a good job of it. Clean beaches and enough National Park safaris to keep everyone in the family happy. Definitely a worthwhile holiday retreat.
