Galle Day Trip: an Exotic Escape!
We met our guide outside of Kingsbury Hotel. We were delayed, he at time. We like!
We drove in a comfortable car through town and we got a slightly idea of the size of the town and how crowdy the town is.
We also pass the impressing new parliament building placed in a lake.
On our way to Galle we asked about Sri Lanka and how it is to live here, about education and health systems and Samir had good answers on all our questions. We learned a lot and want to visit your beautiful country again.
We were taken for a boat ride on a lake with mangrove trees, boards and animals, a temple and fish spa, all of this are new experiments. The boat guide was awesome and spotted animals from long distance.
We had tasty and good local lunch at Rampart Hotel. Caused by heavy rain we chosed to skip the rest of the program for our tour. Samir was creative and replaced it with a visit the Marine Museum in Galle and a walk on the fortress wall.
Samir is a service minded, polite and skilled guide, he made our tour fun and learning.
We will choose to engage him for another tour if we come back sometime. And we will recommend him for sure.
