This trip - met the title - Discover Sri Lanka - it was an introduction to the country - discovering the country really well. This was my first Exodus trip (or similar adventure travel trip) I have undertaken. It was excelled all expectations. The trip was very carefully thought through; a mix of cultural sites (not all there was to see in Sri Lanka and not over doing it), learning about the country, its people (illustrated by a bicycle ride through rural Sri Lanka; eating lunch at a village and another lunch provided by a family affected by the Tsunami), history, wildlife (3 half day trips into national parks and whale watching); relaxation - some fantastic holes; a very little bit of city; finally a bit of beach - all assisted by an excellent leader - Roshan. We had a great group - 7 of us - and we gelled really well. The accommodation was excellent. I have never stayed in such luxurious hotels before; for me they could have been more basic to reduce the price (if they would have a significant impact on the cost of the trip)

The holiday offers an opportunity to see a wide range of what Sri Lanka has to offer - including ancient sites (some 2,000+ years old), national parks, a wide range of wild animals and birds, temples, churches and other historic buildings, and magnificent trees and scenery.

Excellent trip!

Wonderful trip - excellent coverage of the country with visits to heritage sites, national parks and discovery of local culture. Our trip leader, Roshan, was terrific - the trip was very well organized and thought through up to the little detail. Accommodations and transport did exceed my expectation - we stayed in very nice properties throughout the trip and the condition of the tour bus was great.

This was a very varied trip, with lots of travelling and lots of activities. We stayed in mainly good hotels and we had a good range of culture and nature, with a bit of beach and exercise thrown in. We cycled, walked, climbed to the top of huge rock palaces, marvelled at temples and ancient sites, white water rafted, went on safari, rode the local trains, visited a gem factory and a tea factory, walked round botanical gardens, braved the crazy traffic in tuk tuks, went whale watching and drank cocktails in old colonial hotels. It seemed the only thing not on the agenda was relaxing!

Discover Sri Lanka, an amazing adventure.

A truly memorable experience that we will treasure forever. Not only was our first Exodus trip, but our first group tour. We feel that Exodus really did an incredible job. We covered at lot of ground and managed to see so much of Sri Lanka. The days were jammed packed, but all the hotels we stayed at were very comfortable and had a pool or bar you could relax in at the end of your day. I have so many favourites, but my best experiences were climbing Lion Rock, the optional elephant safari, optional grade 3 river rafting, the cycle ride, walking at Horton Plains and the optional lake boat ride at Koggala.

Discover Sri Lanka...shame about 'Brit package tour' feel

Beautiful country, worth seeing this way as you get to see the main sites of Sri Lanka. Beware the British package tour feel that didn't go off the beaten track- not for you if you want to be around cultured and culturally sensitive people. Don't be afraid to NOT follow the herd! I organised my own excursions on free days or when I didn't want to do 'optional' activities and DONT be put off by the tour leader, Roshan's lack of enthusiasm for sites that were not part of the trip, I wasn't put off and had an amazing time. DO get him to get you a guide for your own excursions - he is trustworthy and the prices he quotes are honest as I asked around. DONT be sucked into paying £45 for the Kandy Esala Perahera festival!!! You are paying for garden plastic chairs to sit outside pizza hut or equivalent for a not so great view (i.e. in front of a pillar) - sit with the locals as some tourists were and it was not a squeeze and you did not need to get here at 12pm to get a seat (as the tour leader advised), you can easily arrive at 6pm and get a seat on the floor and soak up the atmosphere. The tour leader is an award winning tour leader but this did not stop him trying to get everyone to pay £45 by advising us that it would be too busy to try and get a seat with the locals etc - frankly very disappointed with this as with £45 by Sri Lankan terms we did not get value for money at all. Even in England you wouldn't pay this much for an awful seat.
