Best Cooking Lesson in Sri Lanka

We had an really nice evening with Duneeshya. She explained everything very well and the food was delicious. Would do it again at any time and can't wait to try everything at home. Thanks Duneeshiya from Hamburg.

Incredible Local Adventure: Hike the Bible Rock in a Day

From my very first inquiry to the adventure itself, Krishani and her team were amazing! She was incredibly accommodating, knowledgeable and pleasant from beginning to end. We only had one day to fit something awesome in before we had to fly back to the USA that same evening. We never thought we’d be able to take a short hike through rain forest and rappel down a waterfall! The entire experience was unforgettable; the food was authentic and delicious, the scenery breathtaking, the adventure thrilling and our adventure guides were top notch. We will definitely be calling on Krishani and Sanka for our next Sri Lanka trip!!!
