Sri Lanka Tour Reviews

4.7 - Excellent Based on 454 customer reviews
A great mixture of mountains and ocean Reviewed Tour: Southern Sri Lanka
Anonymous From South Africa
4 - Very Good
“I had 8 fantastic days in Sri Lanka. The hiking was gorgeous and those who wanted could take it at a bit of a slower pace. There are quite a few early mornings, but all worth it. The only thing I was a little surprised at and would have liked a heads up about is the fact that two of us joined a different tour group that had already been together for a week. This would have been good to know so that I wasn’t super confused the night before and morning we left Negombo when only two of us showed up.”

“It was an excellent trip with many different activities, eg bike riding through the villages with visit to a family, white water rafting, hiking and of course temple visits. What made the your so special was our excellent tour guide Ruwan who told us about the history, fauna and flora as well as the customs. In addition, he was always available and had all meals with us.”

“We did a 14 day tour starting in Colombo where we toured the Colombo Museum, Gangaramaya Temple, Galle face green, and the Red Mosque The second stop was Bentota where we were able to swim at the beach, take the Madhu River boat ride, then visit a Turtle Hatchery. The third stop was a drive to Nuwara Eliya where we stopped at Devan and St. Clair falls. The next morning we took the train to Kandy where were saw Adam's Peak and Mt. Pedro. While in Kandy we visited the Peradeniya Royal Botanical garden and the Temple of the Tooth. From Kandy we drove to Dambulla to visit Dambulla cave temple and enjoyed taking in lunch at Hiriwaduna Village where a local member demonstrated village cooking. I opted to climb Sigiriya in the morning then return back to the hotel to pick up my travel partner to tour the historic site Polonnaruwa. The next day we drove to Trincomalee and spent 3 days enjoying the beach at Nilaveli Beach. The next stop was Anuradhapura to visit Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya. Drove to Alakamandawa and spent one night before departing for Negombo to spend our final day at the beach.

Our private driver was an excellent driver, very helpful and knowledgeable. We would certainly recommend this company for a tour of Sri Lanka.”

Sri Lanka - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Imagine walking among ruins that date back more than 2,000 years, followed the next day by a trip through the rainforest or a relaxing lie on a sandy beach. All of this is possible if you plan a holiday to Sri Lanka, an island country with incredibly diverse landscapes and a rich history. A trip to Sri Lanka will introduce you to welcoming people, eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, and tantalising dishes taking inspiration from Indonesian and Indian cuisine.

Tour Highlights

  • Experience the artwork of the Dambulla Buddha caves
  • Ride the train from Kandy to Ella (often called the world’s most scenic train route)
  • Watch for wild elephants at Uda Walawe National Park
  • See Sri Maha Bodhi, a sacred fig tree that is over 2,200 years old
  • Climb Adam’s Peak, a sacred mountain in the heart of the jungle
  • Sip on green tea at a plantation in Ella

Travel Tips

  • Brush up on your history before visiting Sri Lanka. In particular, get familiar with the country’s civil war, which only ended in 2009. Be respectful as the country is still healing, and avoid engaging in political chat with a local.
  • Sri Lanka has only recently seen a huge leap in tourism, so some areas of the country are still unequipped for tourists. If travelling outside high tourist areas, be prepared for little English, unpaved roads, and fewer convenience stores.
  • Hygiene standards are much laxer than you are used to in Sri Lanka. To avoid food poisoning, skip the street food in favour of sit-down restaurants - and don’t drink the tap water. Check with your country’s travel authority about any recommended vaccinations, such as Hepatitis A, before travelling.
  • Wondering what kind of electric adapter you’ll need for Sri Lanka? You’ll actually need three! Three-pronged UK sockets, two-pronged European sockets, and rounded three-pronged sockets (used in India and Nepal) are all common in Sri Lanka.
  • Hoppers are the go-to snack in Sri Lanka, and they absolutely cannot be missed. Made of fermented batter (usually rice flour or sourdough), the bowl-shaped dish is pan-fried and served with curry, relish or an egg.

Sri Lanka has seasonal weather so please do check up on best time to visit Sri Lanka before planning your tour.
