What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour
There were many moments that made the tour memorable, from snorkeling with turtles, to watching the sun go down over Galle. But the memory that has lasted for me is everyone from the tour playing beach cricket as the sun went down in front of the hotel in Hikkaduwa. The teams including competitive dads, mums who had never played cricket, kids chasing the ball into the sea and a coach driver who was better at cricket than he let on! The locals stopped to watch, lack of light stopped play, and a dip in the hotel pool before dinner made it a perfect night!

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Sarath was an excellent guide. He had the right level of humour and local knowledge on the tour to keep everyone interested and engaged. He explained the days highlights well, and always had extra detail to add if people wanted to carry on and find out more. The engagement with the kids was great, keeping them interested in the activities and making sure they were always enjoying the trip. A special mention must go to the bus drivers, who were also really helpful, friendly and great fun! They really bonded with the kids and you really felt safe with extra adults keeping an eye on them.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
It is hot and sticky, so keep the kids drinking lots of water.Take a good camera for you, and a basic one for the kids, there are endless opportunities to take fantastic photos, our kids loved taking photos in the markets and in the national parks. Get the kids used to curry before you go! Ours now love curry - it's not hot but more curry in 2 weeks was consumed than probably the previous 2 years! There was always other options to curry and rice, but you sometimes need to ask as a curry buffet was normally offered. Sometimes kids just want a sandwich at lunch! Local shops stock great biscuits, so it was fun trying different packets to keep kids going during the day. Roadside corn on the cob was also a great snack. And finally take a tennis ball for beach cricket :)
