Trip to Sri LankaHad a great trip. Aziz travels took time to plan out a neat itenary and cover most of the places. Special mention to Khafil(driver/tour guide) who became more a friend through the trip and we had a safe and a nice company through out the tour. The vehicle was good and very comfortable.
Trip to Sri LankaTT has given me a memorable trip. That was awesome experience. Agents should be even more friendly. I was following up for an information. If that info was given by travel agent without me following up several times, it would have been even more good. People at Sri Lanka we're charging us more for everything. TT should include entry fee for all Itinerary. Beach view room given by hotel.
