Sri Lanka tour & beach holiday
From
£2,125
including UK flights
It was all exciting really from the beautiful beachside hotels to the wildlife parks. At Palagama beach the food was amazing especially when I was shown their own vegetable garden and we picked fresh vegetables that were cooked as individual curries for my dinner that evening. I felt as if I had been away for at least a month - I had seen and done so much in that two weeks. (more)Susie Barrett
Excellent trip (more)Melanie Michel
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs
Sri Lanka holiday, island explorer
From
£2,190

Sri Lanka had everything we love in a holiday, Culture, Wildlife, lush contryside and beautiful beaches. The forest lodge in Habarana was excellent off the beaten track with wonderful hosts. Seeing the baby turtles hatching at Rekawa and the leopard at Yala was also an exciting experience. (more)Amanda Law
Most memorable was the variety of landscape in Sri Lanka, the cave temple at Damballa, the train journey from Kandy, the views from Ella, the night stay in the tree house camp in Yala national park and seeing leopards, elephants and beautiful birds on safari in the park. (more)Barbara Essam
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sri Lanka and the tour aspect was well organised. We particularly enjoyed the variety of activities and accommodation. Best bits were the trip to the rock fortress and Yala where we saw leopards and a big black bear which apparently was very rare. (more)jude parsons

Memorable parts? Everything. The mixture of styles and settings was 100% amazing. Each one fulfilling a different part of the Sri Lanka experience. Each one had novelty; each one was for me just right. I could not and did not expect anything better on this style and type of tour. Tips? Don't worry. Just relax and go with the flow. Everyone without exception that we met and who assisted us was magnificent. Local benefits? Yes. We also benefited from more local insight than... (more)Tim Harber

The most memorable part of our holiday was snorkelling in the Maldives. It was amazing to see sharks, fish and sea turtles on the reef. It was a surreal experience...Overall, I would rate our holiday 10/10. We had a great time in all the countries we visited, the locals were very friendly and hospitable. (more)Tracy Watson
Flying in a seaplane over the Maldives and landing in the lagoon by Filitheyo Island where we spent an amazing week was the most memorable part. (more)Greg Harris

This was the most fantastic holiday. I was not that keen on going, but my husband is a very keen birder and he really wanted to go. I am now so glad he persuaded me, and will definitely visit Sri Lanka again... (more)John Diley
This was a really excellent holiday. We had fun, we were stimulated, we were educated and we made good friends with our locals who showed us their country. We also feel that we had excellent value for money with two locals, a new vehicle, most meals, all entrance fees and other extras included for a very inexpensive daily rate. (more)Keith Pigdon
It was great and our guide, Jith, was an incredible birder, funny, and generous. The most memorable was the smiles of all the people in Sri Lanka whom we passed in our bird walks and the children who got all excited and waved and called to us (more)Gisela Meyn

Memorable parts? The blue train ride, Ooty/Coonor. This was made more enjoyable as it was my birthday- another couple who had also had the delightful driver, Jess and so all drivers, and visitors met up like old friends! Day finished with my driver presenting me with a jasmine and rose garland and a big cake decorated with happy birthday Ann! Tips? Refer to the individual booklet with helpful information, eg on tipping etc. Unless you really like to travel solo, much enhanced trip... (more)Ann Force

Memorable parts? The variety of the trip, the day at yala national park, the elephant orphanage, and the tooth temple. Tips?
