Super 👌 Experience & Very Professional Service
Very prompt reply to our first email with clear information for all my questions, we realized that We made the right decision to book it from Bentota Travel Mart after finishing the Boat trip. Picked up us from our hotel on time and did the boat trip more than 2 hours. We saw many animals including few crocodiles & some uncommon birds. Boatman always spotted animals from far distance and he had unbelievable knowledge about the mangroves and animals. It is nothing more than a paradise in the earth. This Boat Safari is definitely a worth one to do in Bentota and professional service from Travel Mart always adds value of the experience.

Bentota river safari
Jan 2020 • Friends
Just wanted to provide a review for Sam and his company bentota travel mart. Communication to book the tour was very easy and Sam was very quick to respond to my inquiries before booking and kept in communication to confirm booking as well. Sam provided hotel pick up and drop off and was on time and picked us up at the exact time he said he would so very reliable. We took the book safari to celebrate my friend getting married and Sam also surprised the bride with a beautiful flower necklace and cake to celebrate her upcoming wedding which we enjoyed along a quiet private space within the river mangroves- really nice touch and all of us enjoyed ourselves on the boat tour. Our guide also brought along king coconuts which we enjoyed on the river ....such a nice touch and very refreshing. I also recommended this tour to another couple on our trip and they also had a great time on the tour. I highly recommend Sam and his team at Bentota travel mart for the boat safari tour. The tour was about 2 hours long and we got to see monkeys, snakes, water monitor, frogs and alligators. Thanks again for a great time!

Great service !!!!!

Great service, very attentive !!!!!

Before our visit to Bentota, we checked few travel companies see if we could get Some information about where to go and what to do. We saw the good reviews that Bentota Travel Mart had and decided to contact them too. Among all the other agents, we found Sam, from Bentota Travel Mart, was very attentive, friendly and very supportive.
We booked Bentota River Safari and whale watching trip with him. He gave us information about our trip and our boat guide and drive of the whale watching trip were very knowledgeable. He also offered to detour and show us other places during the drive back from the whale watching. We had to change our decided days due to some unavoidable situations and Sam was very understanding in all those times.
We would like to give a big thank to Bentota Travel Mart for all the support they gave us and we wish them all the best !!
Also I would like to recommend Sam and his service to my peer travelers as knowing Sam will really make your holiday more relaxing.

Amazing Lagoon Experience
We booked2 hour boat safari ,but they spend more than 2 hours in the river and it was simply an unbelievable experience. Witnessed two large crocodiles and some inherent birds and mangrove. Sanjeewa who guided us in the boat is very knowledgeable and knew exactly where the animals were. Thank you Sanjeewa and Bentota Travel Mart for the amazing experience.

A bird's eye view
Mar 2019 • Couples
This activity depends on the skipper you get. We had a great skipper with a great eye for small details. He also had 30 years experience doing this. We saw at least 7 species of uncommon birds , cameleon, crocodiles, trees. This is a must do. i recommend going before 8 in the morning.
