"We just arrived back from our trip to Sri Lanka and we both enjoyed it very much. The tour guide/driver was excellent. He was helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable. All the hotels were of a very high standard except one. Thanks very much for arranging this trip for us. I would recommend this itinerary to anyone requiring a quality tour." John Green

All the best qualities of Sri Lanka are unveiled to you on this tour, from the bustling colonial city of Colombo, to the lush tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya and the mysterious rock fort of Sigiriya. A visit to the ancient city of Polonnaruwa allows you to explore the many tombs, statues, temples and stupa that make up the fascinating archaeological park. Explore the Rock Cave Temple at Dambulla, where majestic golden Buddha statues are housed within vast granite outcrops. Some of Sri Lanka's finest murals line the walls of the caves, depicting scenes from the Buddha's life. You will have a few days to savour Sri Lanka's wealth of wildlife too, making visits to the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, the Royal Botanical Gardens and a National Park.
