Amazing holiday package by Thrillophilia, My family and I had a great experience and we really enjoyed a lot the whole trip, the arrangement was totally excellent, the hotels were very comfortable and the transport too, the meals there was truly delicious especially seafood. To be honest from the beginning till the end we didn't face any difficulty at all...and one thing we really like about was the service we get from this company when we had any questions we just called the support number and the agent instantly took actions on it, the places in Sri Lanka was truly paradise, the scenic beauty of the place worth recommending lots of pictures we took, We were very glad that we didn't miss anything on this tour...The most fun which my kids like it so much was the visit to Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage which they had a great time feeding and bathing the innocent creatures. the Sacred Tooth Relic is well-maintained and the art was just lovely... At Bentota, we enjoyed the sightseeing of the place, beach, and many watersport activities...and lots more...the place really amazed us with its beauty... we learn a lot about the place and its culture...Worthwhile tour
