    I had the most memorable holiday ever with my family during this summer vacation.  There was ecxitment in every minute we spent together and mainly due to the tour agent we selected in Sri lanka  The U wild Holidays.  We felt, that every munite was worthwhile. The properitor of U Wild Holidays Mr Rukey himself was very kind enough to join us those 4 days in guiding us the whole tour. The tour started from South and we were facinated with the beach in Unawatuna then the whale watching to not to forget the wonderfull barbecue that night. The jungle safari and the night camping inside YALA national park was out of this world to say the least. We had so many sightscene activities thruought the stay and never a second was boaring. The hotels we stayed were very comfortable and the food was ecxellent. The infulence Mr.Rukey had in all places we visited were astonishing. As a result we got the best posible economical rates with no shortcuts in cumfort. Also his staff is highly commendable, as they were very firendly knowledgeble and courteous. I have alredy recomended my other family members to make their up comming holiday tour with Rukey and his team for an unforgetable stay in this December.  I cant wait for my next holiday with Rukey and team.

    I had an amazing holiday in beautiful Sri Lanka. Our tour guide was a young man called Rookie. He was so friendly and helpful. He showed us around in a such a short period of time(whales do dolphin watching,wildlife safari). We wouldn't have had a great time without    Rookie. We highly recommend him to anyone who would like to come to this paradise. He will not let you down for sure.

    when I was be Sri Lanka , Ruckey haven't this website maybe, so I haven't gime him a feesback by writing. Abusolutly, Ruckey is a good driver and guide, smooth and safe driving. He is always there when I need him, and told me a lot local history and story. I still remember the restaurant he took,  which nearly by the Sigiliya, nice place, kindful host  and delicious food. Also, Ruckey is a handsome, kindful and warm-hearted man. I would denifitely chose his serce again if I am be there again.

    Rukshan and his crew are very knowledgeable, customer focused, friendly, witty and trustworthy. I made my second trip to Sri Lanka with them and had a fabolous time with my son. They go out of their way to show you their countr with pride and care, with love and consideration.  They are also open to any question and flexible to accomodate any wish. 

    Don't look anywhere else if you are looking for a great experience!
