The tours are eclectic and cater for a small number of travellers – leisurely exploring historic sites and towns, idyllic southern beaches and refreshing tea-growing hilltops, all the while staying in fascinating, comfortable boutique hotels, well off the usual tourist track.

The journeys highlight the small nation’s extraordinary culture and its rich, ever-evolving architecture and cuisine. Interested in Architecture? Look at the tour following the work of renowned Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa.

“The Best of SL … this title really did live up to its name. We never had to worry about a thing, except getting ourselves to Colombo. Our driver too was just the best. Very knowledgeable with a love of his country & people…. and we always felt safe driving & travelling around with him. When we stayed on for an extra 2 weeks, Michael was most kind & helpful with arranging our itinerary, nothing was ever too much trouble. It was most certainly a very memorable trip.”


“An excellent introduction to the fabulous Island of Sri Lanka. Our Tour guide, Michael, our Driver Sanjaya & our other travelling companions were great company & lots of fun. There was also the right combination time of activities & R&R. We had a ball & returned home with a fistful of happy memories.”
