Set amid the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has beguiled travellers for centuries with its striking natural beauty and over 2,000 years of culture.
Less than a third of the size of the UK, this tiny island packs a lot into its modest surface area, including no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage sites and one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Asia.
With patches of dense jungle, misty highlands swathed in incredibly green tea-plantations and expanses of wildlife-rich scrubland, the country’s landscape is refreshingly unspoilt, and you’re never more than a short drive from the palm-fringed coastline.
Glories of early Buddhist civilisation such as Anuradhapura, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Sigiriya Rock Fortress remain an important touchstone of national identity in a rich and fascinating culture with religion at its heart.

"We have had the most wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka and commend you on the great itinerary. We felt that we saw the best of this lovely country and will recommend it to our friends. Hotels were all amazing Throughout the entire holiday Buddhi was an extremely careful driver, negotiating some hazardous roads and objects (dogs, monkeys, potholes & tuk tuks) with great care and skill. We felt completely safe at all times. Buddhi had a cheerful personality and was very knowledgeable regarding the culture etc of his country. He was polite, attentive, well groomed and punctual. We would have no hesitation in recommending Buddhi as a guide / driver to our friends and your clients who are looking for a great holiday in Sri Lanka. The car we travelled in was very comfortable & Buddhi kept it spotless. " — Rosemary & Kevin Murphy, Adelaide, November 2019

The security (@ hotels, the airport, the temples and generally in the streets) was rather amazing, and reassuring. The guide we had, Sujith, was brilliant.
