From 2013 to 2016 I had the privilege of asking Lester to organise 3 tours to Sri Lanka I was arranging for my friends and others who wanted to travel the world with me. His knowledge of all aspects of tour organising keeping in mind to offer the best customer experience is second to none and my travellers have always been very pleased. Having organised tours to many parts of the world the easy no fuss background organisation that Lester manages to offer me is such a big relief and makes the life of a tour organiser so much easier.

I first met Lester in 2016 on a private tour of Sri Lanka and we immediately connected over our love for birds and nature. Over the next 15 days I was impressed by his knowledge of and dedication to finding the unique endemic birds of the island. The choice of accommodations was right on and the food was wonderful. Altogether a fantastic tour made better by Lester's engaging personality and vast knowledge of the island. I left having made a friend of someone who is expert on all the things that make a tour an unforgettable experience.

Lester is a clever guide. It maximizes the chances of encountering the target bird while using the five senses that have been sharpened.

Me and my boyfriend were on a fantastic trip to Sri Lanka in 2017. We had booked a guided ten day bird and nature trip. We had a very knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated guide in Lester. We got to see and experience the best of Sri Lanka's bird and wildlife. We can really recommend a trip with Lester Perera! For us Italien is a wonderful memory for life. With best regards
