Nathasha Abeyrathne

Having a passion for travelling has been etched in me for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was small, I had a knack for the word “Traveler” and chose to become one myself. Having a desire to help anyone wishing to travel to anywhere, and especially Sri Lanka, and to help them make decisions on their trips using my own personal experiences, is something that I have decided is a must for my own future.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I have been specialize in creating round tours in Sri Lanka. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have been in the customer care industry since I have left school in 2005 and was working since then as a customer care officer. Afterwards I got the interest to work for the travel industry as a travel adviser. And as of now with a total of total six years of experience I'm working as a Travel Adviser providing consultation and guidance on destinations, ground arrangements, accommodations and tours for both business travelers and tourists. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I have been to many destinations in Sri Lanka and experienced it personally which is something unique for me and the experience is memorable for a lifetime. "

Sri Lanka from North to South - 15 Days · Sri Lanka - Jul 19 - Aug 9, 2019

Traveler: Linda M. - Local specialist: Nathasha Abeyrathne

We are a couple in our 60’s so this trip was going to be quite adventurous for us.
We made a late decision to visit Sri Lanka so to be fair to our specialist Natasha there wasn’t a lot of time for communication.
After the Easter bombing we decided to ignore advice not to go. Security was tight & we could not have felt safer. The people were so welcoming & grateful that we had come!
Our personal driver Loxely had good knowledge, was very calm /reliable & a cautious driver.

Most memorable - Sigiriya Lion Rock, Dambulla Cave Temple, Ella nine arch bridge, Galle Fort, Arugam Bay, Kandy Esala Pera Hera

Least memorable - Travelling far North, Delft Island, 3 safaris (1 is enough)- we saw more wild animals roadside,
Travelled the full length of the country (mostly 70km limit) & return in 22 days.
We probably tried to fit a little too much in so would have liked less temples & more down time esp at the beach.

Best coffee experience - not cheap but worth it!
Hideaway Cafe, Arugam Bay
Espresso Italiano, Sigiriya
