Experience the Very Best of Sri Lanka
We specialise in boutique small group tours for the serendipitous soul
Sri Lanka is the land that gave the world serendipity. Early Arab traders knew it as “Serendib” – good things found by chance. Good things can still be found here in abundance. The land is over supplied with incredible vistas, absorbing activities, warm and friendly people. It is best to be shown – sometimes the best things are hard to find.
Michael Murray, a personable Byron Bay-based world traveller has a passion and a vast knowledge of the island. He formed Best of Sri Lanka Tour share his joy and excitement for this tear-drop jewel in the Indian Ocean. Each tour also includes a local, English speaking, SLTA licensed co-guide and driver.
We only do small group tours – maximum six people. We mainly stay at exclusive, boutique hotels that show you the real Sri Lanka – not a generic tourist trip. We find the right pace, sometimes staying two nights in the same spot, finding a leisurely, relaxed way to move while still having a full, bountiful experience. We look for good company and interesting conversation.
We see the sights – the BEST ones. We eat fine food, learn about architecture (ancient and modern), recline on white sandy beaches, see wild animals in jungles and be pampered in luxury spas. We meet locals and gain an understanding of its ethnic diversity, political upheavals and potential future. Its a deep dive into a fascinating place with many layers.
Best of Sri Lanka Tour can also curate your own travel experience if the nominated dates do not work. Our mission is to provide a novel and unforgettable experience for you – regardless of your schedule or budget.
