Our guides' experience, dedication, and enthusiasm make them ideal ambassadors for your destination. They chart the course, finesse the details, and speak the language (English, as well as the local language). They also possess a truly rare skill, knowing when to let serendipity and inspiration take the lead.
Ajith Fonseca—or “AJ,” as he is known by his friends—was born in Colombo, but spent years pursuing a business degree in England before returning to his beloved homeland to begin a guiding career. A licensed national guide with over ten years’ experience, he finds great joy in sharing his vast knowledge of Sri Lanka, particularly with regard to history and nature. Travelers find his love of Sri Lanka infectious—especially when he’s revealing hidden highlights of Sigiriya. In addition to guiding, AJ is a skilled cyclist and spends his free time trekking though the tea country, rediscovering Sri Lanka’s diversity and beauty for himself. Please note that on this particular tour, you will have one full-time Country Walkers guide with you throughout the tour joined by local guides in each region we visit in order to offer the deepest immersion and best local expertise.
