Bhatiya was kind enough to take us to the Udawalawa National Park which was a three hour drive each way. His wife had also baked us some delicious cake which we thoroughly enjoyed during the safari. Bhatiya is really kind and punctual, and is very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and the history behind it.
Thanks again for all your help bhatiya
Best wishes, Joanna.

My wife and I have just returned from an excellent all day trip with the host of Bhathiya Tours, the wonderful Barti.
Turtle sanctuary
Madu river safari including a cinnamon farm
Buddhist temple
Moonstone mine
Galle fort
A full day was exceptionally well hosted by Barti who went above and beyond when we let him know prior to meeting that it was our wedding anniversary.
A surprise detour took us to Barti’s home where his family had baked us a cake and held a surprise party for us.
I can not recommend Bhathiya tours highly enough and do recommend that you contact Barti direct for all your needs when in Sri Lanka. We have booked another tour on Wednesday to one of the National
parks and can only hope that the experience is as exceptional as today has been.
Fabulous.
Ps if you need contact details I can let you have a direct number if needed.

We enjoyed our first tour with Bhathiya so much four years ago we returned for a second last month. We started with a stay in his brand new and very comfortable villa, Richmond Hillside (also on Trip Advisor), where we celebrated Sinhalese New Year with his family. We then visited some favorite spots in Sri Lanka, Ella Gap, Tea Plantations, a short train trip in the mountains, and the Dutch Fort in Galle. We added some new experiences: Whale Watching from Mirissa, Elephants in the orphanage and wild at Uda Walawe, and a River Tour on the Madu. As expected Bhathiya was knowledgeable, friendly, punctual, and helpful. When one of our hotels experienced a water outage during a busy holiday he was able to move us to another hotel, where they provided us with breakfast and a chance to freshen up before we even checked in. Bhathiya is a capable driver, no small feat on roads where a Tuk Tuk, a bus, a car and two motorcycles all try to occupy the same two lanes. Bhathiya can be reached at bhathiyatours@hotmail.com or his website, which has lots of great photos, toursinsrila kabathiya.com. Sri Lanka is a beautiful and varied country and Bhathiya is a great ambassador.

We really enjoyed our Sri Lanka round trip with Bhathiya. He‘s an excellent driver and a very kind person, always helpful and honest.
He always new where we will stay the nights, since I already planned the hotels in advance and he always found them easily.

Bhathiya was also a very good guide who knows a lot about history and culture and likes to share his huge knowledge.

I really can recommand him since he‘s also very flexible and always trying to do the best as organising tickets or best places in boats, shows etc.

bhathiyatours@hotmail.com

He also likes children and at the start of our journey his wife cooked a tasty local cake for us!
Thank you so much!!
Hopefully we‘ll come back one day!
