The award was also won by Walkers Tours previously in 2016.
November 25th, 2020 - In response to this most recent win, CEO of Walkers Tours Limited, Nalaka Amaratunga said, “Even though this is not the first time that we are winning this award, winning it this year, we consider it to be a great achievement. For me personally, holding on to all our staff has been the greatest achievement.” “I want to thank each and every one of you, especially our agents and our principals for all the support that they have extended throughout the years without which all this wouldn’t have been a possibility,” he added.
With tourism activities coming to a temporary halt due to the prevailing pandemic outbreak, Walkers Tours is gearing its way forward to embracing the new normal by further strengthening its health and safety and responsible tourism practices which has proven to be one of its biggest strengths next to its staff. The last 2 years have been the most testing times in the last decade for Sri Lanka Tourism and Amaratunga considers this award to be a testament to its resilience.
