5 Traveler Reviews

  • We saw big monitor lizards, macaque monkeys, all sorts of exotic birds. Our guide was very informed and spoke good English. Our tuktuk driver was right on time.

  • Excellent communication from tour company. Charming, low key boat tour with well informed local guide.

  • I highly recommend this tour as a way see the more peaceful side of the greater Negombo area. The tuk tuk driver was friendly and on time to pick me up and take me back, although he got lost on the way and was unfamiliar with how the tickets worked. The boat tour was peaceful and beautiful. We saw a variety of birds, water monitors, flying fish, monkeys, and scenery.

  • Fantastic loved this trip even if we hadn't seen anything it was still great just to slowly move through the wetlands to the lagoon we did see lots of wildlife brilliant half day trip

  • An interesting trip and saw quite a few birds at close range, one even climbed on the boat!.
    The driver had a little trouble finding the start point, and that was the case for another visitor too.
    Suggest better information to the pick-up drivers.
