Trip Overview

If you are a fan of exotic cultures and love to travel in countries and places that look like they are from a whole other world, then Sri Lanka would be the next place you should visit. With a written history going back over 2000 years and being influenced by its neighbors through all that time and being influenced by the colonial invaders such as the Dutch, Portuguese and the British in the later centuries, Sri Lanka is a cultural melting pot. Our Tour of Sri Lanka will take you from the ruins of Anuradhapura, the capital of the first kingdom of Sri Lanka to Colombo, the current capital which is a cosmopolitan city dotted with skyscrapers and great landmarks. We will also take you through the natural marvels that Sri Lanka has to offer as well like the hill country and amazing sandy beaches.
