We very much enjoyed Sri Lanka and appreciated your efforts in putting together a good itinerary in what was a really a short time and close to the planned departure date. The hotels were good and met our expectations, especially the Amaya Hills in Kandy.  Our driver was very experienced in hotel management and kept us highly informed about the places we visited and the local site guides he selected were excellent.  Qatar Airlines were excellent and our stay in Doha was superb.
