For one, we take travel seriously at Whittalls Travels.
Since 1993, we've built an enviable reputation as Sri Lanka's premier destination management company. We also have excellent relationships with other renowned members - institutions and individuals - of the worldwide travel fraternity. It is why, in 2005, we expanded our offerings by with a new service that helped travellers customize their tour of Sri Lanka.
Our team is full of people who are passionate travellers themselves – some of whom purport to know Sri Lanka like the back of their hand. This is incredibly useful because, as every traveller knows, not all secrets of a location are written down – some are fragments in the minds of the people who have experienced these locations beforehand; thus the tours we customize are informed by this collective and individual knowledge of Sri Lanka.
Complex and a tad unpredictable, Sri Lanka can be a bewildering experience to a first time visitor. But therein lies its beauty. A trusted local partner can help you avoid potential pitfalls of travelling in Sri Lanka for the first time.
Such issues include:
- Drivers who can't find the location of your hotel - after claiming they know where it is
- Unavailability of train tickets on the day of travel
- Drivers who, motivated by kick-backs and commissions, take you to unauthorized shops or tourist traps
- Being uninformed about local festivities and festivals
These issues can be simple, but they add up to valuable time that you'd rather spend having the time of your life - right?
