Magical Sri Lanka and Maldives

‘The Earth Trip absolutely recommended for hassle-free holidays! We’ve just come back from Sri Lanka and the Maldives for our honeymoon.
Re Sri Lanka, we have been accompanied by an amazing driver (Danesh) across the whole country in 9 days enjoying any single day! it can be a bit tiring because you have to pack every 2 days your things and travel again towards a new destination but it is absolutely worth!
The Maldives was simply a dream, unfortunately, the weather was not excellent because of the period, however, the accommodation was of an upper-class level and we could enjoy the atoll anyway, by making the excursions (dolphin watching and snorkelling with turtles), having an amazing and romantic dinner and staying on the beach even when little raining thanking the massive umbrella provided we could never get wet!!!’

Excellent trip, well planned and well executed

We were put in touch with Earth Trip by Responsible Travel, as we wanted to make sure much of what we spent on our holiday went to those in the country where we were going.

Aleem at Earth Trip was very patient with us as we changed our plans, eventually coming up with an itinerary that suited us, complete with car and driver to take us around the various parts of Sri Lanka. In the event, the driver, Mangala, was excellent, making minor tweaks to the trip as we went along to ensure an even better experience. We probably tried to do too much in the time available, but there is so much to do and see in Sri Lanka and there is nothing we would take off the list with hindsight.

Best Holiday ever – 3 weeks in wonderful Sri Lanka

“We have just enjoyed our best holiday ever, 3 weeks in Sri Lanka organised by The Earth Trip. We are used to organising our own holidays and travelling independently but after meeting Aleem at a travel show we put our trust in him and he created a superb itinerary for us, a mix of culture,beaches and wildlife.We are a family of 4, with 2 older teenage girls – they were interested and engaged from start to finish. The hotels we stayed in were all of the highest quality and I know that The Earth Trip reviews these annually. Having a driver and guide for the three weeks was a revelation, I have never relaxed quite so quickly and like all the Sri Lankans we met they were warm, friendly and fun company.”

I used Earth Trip to plan a vacation to Madagascar!

“I used Earth Trip to plan a vacation to Madagascar and it was an outstanding experience. It was very easy to set up my trip and it all unfolded with perfect smoothness from the moment I arrived until the sad moment when I left. I really appreciated that Earth Trip partners with local guides and businesses for the countries in which they organize travel. Every hotel, every meal, every adventure was well planned and very well executed. My mum and I are planning on returning to Madagascar in about 2 years to see those parts of the island that we didn’t have time for on this trip and it will definitely Earth Trip that we use to plan that vacation as well -big thanks to Aleem and all of the Earth Trip team that made our adventures so amazing! ”

5* Holiday Company!

We have just returned from 25 day holiday touring Sri Lanka, organised by Aleem at Earth Trip. Our holiday exceeded all expectations! We had combined nature, history and culture as well as a few days ‘ rand r’ at the end. Aleem had understood our requirements perfectly and his suggestions for our tour were spot on! The total cost of our holiday was very reasonable compared with other companies.
All the arrangements worked perfectly, the hotels were all different but of a very high standard. Our driver/guide Nihal was excellent as were the local guides. Because of his extensive knowledge of Sri Lanka, Aleem suggested various places not normally on the ‘tourist trail’ We really enjoyed visiting Wilpattu NP and excellent sightings of 2 leopards. Gal Oya Lodge was another revelation!

We would highly recommend this company.

“Earth Trip were one of 5 companies that we contacted concerning our holiday to Madagascar. We chose to travel with Earth Trip due to a combination of great value and customer service provided by Aleem.They tailored our itinerary to our requests and provided prompt answers to our questions.Once we were in Madagascar, we were greeted by the local team member (Mialy) who introduced us to our driver and reassured us that they would be available throughout our stay.
The hotels were varied from stylish beach resort to Eco lodges in the heart of national parks. But each one was clean and comfortable with generous and tasty food.
Our guides in the national parks were knowledgeable and made our walks interesting and did their utmost to find us Lemurs and other aniamals.
Finally our driver spoke good English, was very safe and pointed out places of interest on our journey while sharing his knowledge of Madagascan culture.
I would not hesitate to recommend Earth Trip and their partners in Madagascar to anyone wishing to go on a wonderful, funfilled holiday

“We first met Izabela (and baby) at the Destinations Show in London and were impressed by her original and refreshing ideas on what a trip to Sri Lanka could (and should not) include. Just over a year later, we have recently returned from a fantastic three and a half week holiday there. In the meantime, we’d emailed and talked with Aleem, who listened and suggested and put together an itinerary that seemed to include everything we hoped for – and more that we hadn’t thought of! We’ve had a wonderful variety of experiences, sights and accommodation and all in the care of a friendly, professional driver/guide. We love the personal input you get when using an independent travel operator and we have no hesitation in recommending The Earth Trip. Thank you Aleem and Izabela.”

We had the most amazing time in Madagascar

We had the most amazing time in Madagascar, it far exceeded our expectations on many levels.
Right from the very first email to Earth Trip we was impressed by their efficiency and professionalism, this was reflected throughout the whole holiday.
The local guides were fantastic, welcoming, knowledgable, professional and went to great lengths to meet any requests that we had, ensuring we had the best experiences. They are amongst the finest we have seen on our travels. The vehicles used were kept immaculate and were very comfortable and the hotels selected were beautiful.
We can not speak highly enough of Earth Trip and would highly recommend their services. A truly fantastic company!
