The crew was very nice, especially that early in he morning it was great to start with some tea before we take off to search for whales. The also tool great care for a little girl who did not feel that well.

We drove a little away from the coast and roughly after an hour we we able to see a blue whale. That was absolutely great! We followed the whale for some time to get a good view and the crew was really eager that everyone has had a good view on the whale.

We then got lucky that we as well saw some dolphins!

Overall a great experience! I would definitely recommend this trip.

My sister and I booked a tour of the Sinharaja rainforest online as a leg of our one week exploring the island. Everything about this tour and the people who organized it was perfect from start to finish. Roshan promptly picked us up from our hotel in Galle at 8 am and drove us 3 hours to Sinharaja. During the drive he was incredibly kind and engaging. He showed us true Sri Lankan hospitality. Once we arrived in Sinharaja we were met by our tour guide who works for the forestry department. He took us to the entrance by Tuk Tuk and we started the 3 hour hike with him. Our tour guide knew every tree and animal in the rainforest. It was amazing! Turns out he has been doing this job for over 20 years and still has such enthusiasm for nature and spreading knowledge. We saw lizards, spiders, snakes, monkeys, and even a scorpion! He pointed out trees that were over 500 years old and it was amazing to hear all that he knew. We hiked about 1.5 hours to an amazing water fall where we swam and then had lunch. Then we hiked back. During the whole tour my sister and I felt so engaged and cared for! Roshan was even able to give us a ride to our next destination (Udawalawe). Both Roshan and our guide showed us nothing but kindness and huge smiles on their faces despite the fact that they were spending a national holiday working to get us the best experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone else looking for wonderful company and a perfect experience!

Really good day! Visited loads of places and the forest were amazing, the safari was really good, even though it rained a little, it just added to the full experience, we saw lot of Elephants and only 1 crocodile, but that's just because of the time of year it was, so we were grateful to have seen one! The tour guide, Piyasena, was brilliant, he made us all feel comfortable, he was funny and extremely informative throughout the entire tour, he also encouraged us to take part as much a possible. Would highly recommend this tour and to be honest I wouldn't mind doing it all over again!

Arranged over the phone then booked online whilst in Galle. Car arrived promptly and good personal service. Journey time was about 3 hours from Galle Fort. Car was a 4 seat recent saloon. Driver was great - careful and steady (Razeek) and was very helpful later finding a shop to buy some jaggery on the way back. Breakfast (fruit box) was provided. On arrival at the park the ranger seemed less experienced than a second who set off with another couple at the same time so pot luck I guess. Was at first assumed we would want to do the shorter of the walks to a large rock pool for swimming but there was no issue when we asked to first go to another slightly further less visited waterfall. Less used path was a scramble in some places but OK. Enjoyed a good foot massage from fish as we ate simple lunch then walked back down to the swimming pool which was teeming with fish. Saw two beautiful snakes during the day (the guide was good to spend extra time looking for a vine snake), lizards, monkeys, fish etc. Also given info on some of the flora. Stopped at a tea estate coming back for a tour / tasting. Overall a 12 hour round trip - well organised and run.

We made the Sinharaja tour from Galle. It is a long ride (3 hours), but the driver does his job very well and gets you there safe and takes care of you the whole ride. He also explains you things on the way.

Our guide in the forest is also a very nice and knowledgeable person. He pointed out several animals we wouldn't have seen by our own.

We got a very rainy day bit it is not called rainforest for nothing. We wore hiking shoes and rain ponchos and I think it was a good choice. On sunnier days you may get along with flip flops, shorts and a t-shirt but be prepared to climb slippery rocks and go through muddy spots. The forest tour itself takes around 3 hours, maybe a bit more if you take a bath at the waterfall.

I would recommend this tour. Maybe it is a good option to spend a night there and hike more of the trails (if you have the time). You can also visit a tea factory, just talk to the driver or with Rashan. I'm sure they will adapt to your needs.

Tldr: We felt very well cared of and the forest is astonishing.

This is one of the best places to visit if you would like to experience bio-diversity. Two natural waterfalls are there to visit.

Amazing experience - can only highly, highly recommend!!! We were in Sri Lanka mainly for surfing and relaxing, but decided to undertake an adventure spontaneously.

The tour was extremely well organized, the staff was very friendly and the experience mindblowing.

If you have a spare day, don’t miss out on this!!!
