Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?

All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you.

You will have your own private car and chauffeur-guide on excursions and transfers between destinations.

Sri Lanka differs from many other destinations in this respect - the driver doubles as the guide.

What are the departure dates?

Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.

As this is a private tour, there are no set departure dates.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to Sri Lanka.

Typically for Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan Airlines, British Airways and Emirates are the airlines we most often use.

However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.

Sri Lankan Airlines and British Airways fly directly to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan Airlines and Emirates are both great options for combining Sri Lanka with the Maldives.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of hotels in Sri Lanka, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We keep on top of hotel developments in Sri Lanka through our own inspection trips and also through the expertise of our local partners. We also keep tabs on feedback online and from our customers.

Sri Lanka has a really great choice of boutique hotels and some excellent luxury hotels.

Do you cater for Solo Travellers & Families?

Yes, we have many solo travellers, and Sri Lanka is generally a safe, friendly and welcoming destination for those travelling alone.

Sri Lanka is very well suited for families of all ages and we can tailor something specifically to fit your family's needs.

This particular Sri Lanka Highlights itinerary can be tailored for families. Children of all ages tend to love Sri Lanka for the wildlife, jungle and activities such as cycling around the temples.

How long have you been organising holidays to Sri Lanka?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to Sri Lanka for over 10 years.

Our team has a wealth of combined experience in the industry and our Director has been involved in organising holidays to Sri Lanka since the early 1990's.

Our partners on the ground in Sri Lanka have over 20 years experience in operating there.

They understand the country inside out and have a strong infrastructure of staff, guides and vehicles.

We've had the same partnership in Sri Lanka since 2010.

What destinations can be combined with Sri Lanka?

A holiday to Sri Lanka is often combined with a beach holiday in the Maldives. It's really the perfect combination of culture, sights, wildlife and some of the best beaches in the world.

A stopover in Dubai or Abu Dhabi is a very popular option for Sri Lanka holidays - it makes a great contrast.

Sri Lanka is also sometimes combined with South East Asia or with a journey around India.

Should our clients need any assistance during a trip to Sri Lanka, we always have at least one of our own staff on a similar time zone, and we're open 7 days a week in Saigon.

Of course our local partners are always there to assist 24-7.

Yala National Park

One of Sri Lanka’s prime wildlife parks, Yala covers almost 1000 square kilometres of parkland, jungle, beaches, rivers, scrubland and freshwater lakes.

The park offers some of the best wildlife in Sri Lanka because of the diverse landscapes.

Surprisingly, Yala has the highest concentration of leopards anywhere in the world.

There are also elephants, wild boar, crocodiles, monkeys, eagles and many other species of bird.

Including Yala on a tour of Sri Lanka is a great way to get close to Sri Lanka’s wildlife.

Galle

Wonderfully enigmatic and atmospheric, Galle Fort is a World Heritage designated area consisting of quiet streets lined with traditional houses, high quality antique shops, old churches and the occasional luxury boutique hotel.

The area close to the fort and Galle town also has some fantastic beaches and some of the best boutique hotels in Sri Lanka.

The Galle Coast is a great destination to consider for a beach stay in Sri Lanka.

Frangipani Tree is just one of the boutique hotels in Sri Lanka's Galle Coast which we love.

Sri Lanka's Southern Coast

For the best beaches in Sri Lanka, then a Sri Lankan beach holiday in the south is hard to beat.

Things are much quieter here, east of Galle.

Weligama is a beautiful spot and home to some of the nicest boutique hotels in Sri Lanka. For some real luxury in Sri Lanka, try Cape Weligama which is an outstanding luxury hotel.

Tangalle is very laid-back and quiet, with a few reminders of Dutch colonial times and some pretty surrounding villages.

The Amanwella is one of the finest hotels in Sri Lanka and a real treat in a superb location.

Mirissa is certainly one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in Sri Lanka and a stay here is ideal for those looking for tranquility.

Number ONE Mirissa is a great option for a boutique beach hotel in the south of Sri Lanka.
