    I had an amazing time with intro travel on this Sri Lanka tour. It’s well organised and the tour guides had really good knowledge and were able to share their beautiful country with us. Our group leader was Roisin, who is an absolute star. Always there for you what ever you need. Always quick to act if something is going 100% right, willing to do anything to get us out food correctly or even a perfect insta shot. She is wonderful!! Overall this tour is definitely worth booking on to, intro travel NEVER disappoints.

    This tour was my third intro tour & again was another amazing experience! The itinerary had everything I wanted to do whilst away & covered a lot of Sri Lanka & The accommodation was a lot better than I expected. One of the reasons I enjoyed the tour so much was because of our tour leader was Roisin, she was the best tour leader by far our of the three I’ve had. She was very approachable & her enthusiasm & energy was infectious & ongoing throughout the whole trip! Thanks Roisin for making this trip the best one yet

    Yet another amazing experience with intro travel ! While this a new country for the company and therefore requires some more work to finesse their product they still ensured I had an amazing time ! Something I’ve noticed with intro travel is the leaders never fail to be amazing and Charley sure kept up that record ! An amazing bundle of fun to be around. She made the tour amazing and can’t thank her enough for that !

    Amazing mix of accommodation, seeing all the beautiful sights in Sri Lanka. Our guide was incredibly informative and went out of her way to ensure every one had a fantastic time. Our bus driver was fantastic and even organised Wi-Fi. All the local guides were outstanding, excellent English and very knowledgeable. A busy trip, but with enough free time to relax
