Very recently I had a tour agency which ditched me mid way whilst I was diving in Sri Lanka. To the greatest credit, I later opted for Off beat chaps and their personal and prompt intervention salvaged my trip within a day of contacting them. Their Lankan partners were equally amazing. They also took care of my special requests like local food and places which aren't on the tourist radar. Kudos to Vandana and the founder and her super helpful team
