We booked a 9-day private tour of Sri Lanka. The tour was excellent. Debora at Odynovo listened to my requests and put together an itinerary that was creative and reflective of our needs. Our local guide (Mr. Krishantha Gunawardana) was very good, too: informative, a comfortable driver, and willing to let us set our own pace. Part way through our trip. the COVID-19 virus became an official pandemic. Sites across Sri Lanka began to close, and other countries were shutting their borders. It was a stressful time, and it was hard to make the decision to cut our trip short. But we did make that decision, and we felt that it was an informed decision. Odynovo and their local agent took very good care of us, ensuring we had all of the information we needed, monitoring the situation carefully to enable us to see sites that were still available, and providing extra supplies, such as hand-sanitizer, to enable us to follow the best hygiene practices. When we decided to leave, they made it very easy for us, changing what they needed to change, and helping me make changes to our own travel arrangements. We plan to return to Sri Lanka, to complete our tour, someday, when things are less crazy around the world. I know we will reach out to Odynovo again.

We have just returned from a fabulous 12 days in Sri Lanka which we arranged through Odynovo. I contacted a number of companies before booking this trip but Lynn Liu arranged the best itinerary, listening to our needs and including all the things we wanted to see on quite a tight schedule. The hotels that were chosen and booked were all of a very high standard and Lynn always replied to our messages patiently and promptly. The trip went without a hitch. Our driver Farook, was waiting at the airport with a small welcome gift for each of us which was a nice touch. He was a great driver and guide and we always felt safe and looked after. He really went the extra mile, even lending our son his trainers when my son accidentally left his at the hotel. Thank you Lynn and Farook for our best ever family holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend Odynovo and hope to use them again very soon.

After two weeks our touring India we headed to Sri Lanka for some down time to relax at 98 Acres Resort in Ella and The River House by Asia Leisure in Balapitiya. Our Odynovo driver was also our guide, Sampath Lokukodikara. He was welcoming from the moment we met him. He was very informative, safe, kind and efficient. He also made sure to stop whenever we needed a break with our two daughters ages 9 and 10 years. We appreciated his patience when we wanted to take photos or when we wanted to miss something to make better time. Sampath remained with us from the first day in Negombo to our last day when he dropped us off at Pledgescape before our flight. He took excellent care of us and hiked with us when we visited the 9 Arch Bridge in Ella. The girls loved how Sampath would stop for coconuts for them as they grew to love coconut water and the delicious creamy coconut meat. Sampath made a point to find them for the girls often. Our trip to Sri Lanka was just the relaxation time we needed. 98 Acres in Ella is an incredible eco resort that must not be missed. Its located on a 98 Acre tea plantation. Within walking distance to Little Adams Peak. We hiked it twice once for sunrise and another for sun down. The River House was also a secluded getaway on the Madu River. We took a river safari booked through the hotel that was fun and later took at TUK TUK to their sister resort to spend our last evening on the beach. Again Sampath was there for us to make sure we made it to each destination without delay and all the while explaining points of interest. On our way back to Colombo he stopped so we could see the stilt fishermen and also made time for us in Galle so we could visit the Galle Fort. Odynovo set us up right with Sampath. And Bruce Peng planned all the details for us back in Gulin China. It was just the ending to a perfect trip to India. Thank you Odynovo!

We recently completed our third tour with Odynovo, which was a tour of India and Sri Lanka. Once again, we had a wonderful trip, which was organized by John Hu of Odynovo. Our trip included a one-day tour of Colombo, which was very good. Our guide in Sri Lanka, Wasantha, was excellent and had much knowledge to share. Our experience on this third trip with Odynovo was so positive that we are currently working with John Hu to design our next (fourth) trip!
