    I enjoyed all the program points of the tour as well as visiting the tourist places and having contact with the locals. It was a lot of fun to travel around in Sri Lanka and all the cities were very well selected, I am glad that I decided for this tour because I could not have better experiences than with Seerendipity. Our tour guide was excellent. He took care of all the time. He told us between the program a lot about the country, the religions, the animals and the culture. Every day was exciting. Supun showed us public markets, public places to eat and we always felt very safe. Best Tour guide ever!!!
