5 - Excellent
  • Ash K
“I had the best time on the Sri Lanka tour with this travel specialist. It was an authentic cultural experience from the cooking class, to the elephant safari and the beautiful sandy beaches. Thank you to our leader Hasi who made this trip so memorable and fun!”
Sri Lanka is beautiful and Hasi and V are great guides!
5 - Excellent
  • Gabriella
“I have just returned home from the most amazing trip to Sri Lanka. Hasi was our tour guide and made the trip so fun and informative. Nothing was too much trouble. V also looked after us for a couple of days too and he was also amazing and was so easy to get along with. This was my second tour with this travel operator and I can 100% say that it’s the best way to travel. Thank you Hasi and V.”
Unforgettable Sri Lankan experience
5 - Excellent
  • Maher OUALI
“It was my first trip with this travel specialist and it really was amazing, unforgettable and full of emotions. Our tour guide was Vajira, he’s a lovely person, dedicated to his work and very knowledgeable. He made sure that we fully enjoy the local experience and he was there to answer any question or to help us out if needed. We shared laughter moments with him along the way and we were all in tears at the end of 10 day trip. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with friendly people, and the tour group was like one big family. I highly recommend this tour, it’s worth every penny. ?”

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.

Tours in Sri Lanka - Questions and Answers

  • Is Sri Lanka safe for tourists?

    Sri Lanka is a medium-risk country with moderate crime rates. Most travelers do not feel unsafe in the country. However, you should always be cautious while you are there. Crimes that tourists are most likely to encounter are pickpocketing and bag snatching, both of which are fairly common in Sri Lanka. 

    In addition to this, solo female travelers are at risk of sexual violence, which is why we always recommend choosing a group tour rather than exploring the country alone.

  • How much does it cost to tour Sri Lanka?

    Your Sri Lanka tour price can vary greatly, depending on the length of the trip, the month you are traveling, and the accommodation and services that you wish to book. Two weeks in Sri Lanka, for example, can cost anywhere from around USD 800 to USD 2,500 per person.

    If you are looking for something less expensive, you can opt for tours lasting between four to seven days that can be booked for USD 500 or less. However, please keep in mind that most tours do not include international flights, visa charges, and travel insurance, which you will have to factor into your budget.

    Travelers heading out to discover Sri Lanka on their own (without a package tour), should be prepared to spend around USD 40 per person, per day on food and accommodation.

  • How many days are enough for Sri Lanka?

    Sri Lanka is full of incredible sights and is certainly not a country to rush through. We suggest spending no less than five days in the country. However, if you have time, two weeks in Sri Lanka is ideal. For further guidance, check out our in-depth travel guide on how many days to spend in Sri Lanka.

  • Where should I stay in Sri Lanka?

    Given that the country has numerous destinations worth exploring, we suggest that you plan a trip that allows you to stay in at least three destinations. Many travelers spend a night or two in Colombo since the capital city has an international airport along with some noteworthy sights.

    Galle and Matara are probably the most touristy areas of the country with the best beaches. But if you are planning to include surfing in your itinerary, be sure to check out Arugam Bay on the east coast. And do not miss your chance to explore Kandy, a beautiful city surrounded by mountains, tea plantations, and lush rainforests.

  • How much money do I need for 2 weeks in Sri Lanka?

    Two weeks in Sri Lanka can cost anywhere from around USD 800 to USD 2,500 per person. When checking out trips online, make sure that you go through what your tour includes, as each trip has different inclusions and exclusions. For example, most group tours will cover all meals and accommodation and admission to the attractions listed on the itinerary. So, generally, you will need to bring enough cash for snacks, drinks, and any additional activities you wish to do.

    To give you an idea, a cappuccino in a coffee shop is around USD 2, and a burger at McDonald’s costs USD 1.50 in Sri Lanka. Similarly, a beer in a restaurant can be had for between USD 1.50 and USD 3.
