Who are we and what is Beat Route Tours?
Chamil and I have been married for seven years having met in Sri Lanka in 2003 whilst I was working as a volunteer community worker and teacher. Following his college education Chamil had pursued a career in tourism and had been working as a tour operator and hotel manager since 1999. I found that tourists would naturally seek my advice on places of interest and run past their travel plans with me confident that my only agenda was to offer good, honest advice so that they too would fall in love with the country that had stolen my heart. A young couple in love, we travelled widely and lived in various locations around the Island. Having worked as a hotel manager for years Chamil experienced for the first time the many ups and downs faced by travellers in the country. Our wider family circumstances brought us both to the UK although Sri Lanka is never far from our minds and we return frequently to keep in touch with family, friends and the beautiful Island. We have been fortunate enough to travel to an array of astonishing and beautiful countries together and have first hand experience of how precious honest, local advice is when holidays are being planned.
The third member of the team is Sri Lanka based Sisira. A friend of ours of many years, the three of us have spent endless evenings agonising over the pitfalls of large organised tours and our 'vision' of how this could be be made better and fairer for tourists visiting the county. A qualified National Guide with many years of experience as a tour operator in Sri Lanka, Sisira has recently made a leap of faith and left the large tour company he was working for to continue what he loves doing independently.
