Ayubowan! I’m grateful to be writing another review based on our second trip organized by Pathumi at Explore Vacations. It. Was. Amazing. Again. First, we were partnered with one of our favourite human beings - Tharindu - who expertly navigated and guided us for two weeks. He ensured we soaked up as much knowledge, culture, and goodness as possible. His care and concern, kindness and generosity are incredible. Tharindu is one of a kind. Because it was our second trip to Sri Lanka in a short period, Pathumi ensured we saw incredible new sites that showcased the diversity of beautiful Sri Lanka. The hotels she recommended were unique. The locations and food second to none. The care and attention Pathumi put into the organization of our trip made it another impactful adventure. I highly recommend Explore Vacations based on the experience we had with Pathumi and Tharindu. We did not have to worry about any detail at any point during our holiday …. And outside of trip planning/execution, they are wonderful people in general 😊

We had a great experience with Explore vacations — Antan and Pathumi were very helpful and attentive in helping organise logistics for our trip, including train tickets and a car and driver for our trip to the tea country in and around Nuwara Eliya. Tharindu our driver was spectacular — he looked after us so well and was very knowledgable of the local surroundings, intrigues and sites — in addition to being a great and safe driver. Would definitely recommend to use Explore Vacations!

This was an amazing trip. This was made possible because our guide Sandu Fronceska was amazing. He's kind, understanding, patient and very friendly. He knows English well so there no problem with the language. If you're trying to get here, ask for Sandu.

My family and I recently returned from a two week vacation to Sri Lanka with Explore Vacations. Our experience exceeded our expectations. We worked with Phatumi to create a customized itinerary that showcased the country’s rich history, culture, people, food and nature and our guide/chauffeur/educator and friend, Tharindu, was absolutely extraordinary. His passion, knowledge, flexibility, calmness and genuine nature elevated our experience beyond measure. He became a part of our family. It was an unforgettable adventure thanks to Phatumi and Tharindu, we didn’t want to leave! If Sri Lanka isn’t already on your bucket list, it should be! I highly recommend visiting this beautiful country and working with Explore Vacations. 10/10 experience all round!
