  • Subhash Krishan Malhotra
“First solo trip for me, but the tour group staff (and guests for that matter) were excellent - the travelling times whilst long, were well worth it - our tour guide Tshepo and driver Cosmas made the trip effortless with good organisation, clear communication and always timely starts/finishes - the information provided at each location, picture opportunities given, fun activities, good food and basically everything else, made this my favourite trip to date - will defo be doing another Africa tour with the tour operator”
100% recommend this trip!

  • Robin Pruis
“Perfect balance between adventure, culture, and free time! My favourite experience of the trip was visiting the monks. Rosin was the best group leader I've ever had on a tour! She was so energetic and made all 12 days incredibly exciting. She really made an effort to get to know each of us individually. This trip was perfect for me because I would not have been able to book and plan something like this myself! I 100% recommend this trip!!”
Great guides

“The Sir Lanka experience was a great way to meet the people and see the country, also to experience life there. I loved the balance between tours, activities and getting the chance to relax. All the accommodation was great and the variety definitely impressed me, it was a really unique trip. Our guide Stuart, was amazing. He took care of every person on our group and helped us organise everything so we could simply relax. I felt so comfortable and would recommend this tour with their great guides.”
