Holiday information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

This comprehensive tour gives us a great experience of Sri Lanka’s cultural heritage, natural beauty and friendly and hospitable people. By using local tour leaders you’ll be able to enjoy and learn about many aspects of life in Sri Lanka not accessible on other trips, and of course it is a significant way to create local employment.

We are encouraged to minimise use of water, towels and bedding throughout the tour in order to help the hotels reduce their energy consumption. The food in Sri Lanka remains exceptionally local, with fresh organic vegetables whilst in the central highlands and beautiful fresh seafood along the coast. We travel in groups no larger than 18 people. This allows us to use a small bus which is much more suitable for the roads in Sri Lanka, particularly travelling between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.

As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. Cool Earth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.

People

We use local leaders for all of our tours in Sri Lanka as we feel that they can offer a great insight in to the culture of this beautiful country. Our Tour Leaders are passionate about Responsible Tourism and brief each group on arrival. They are also on hand throughout the trip to offer advice on how to get the best from each location without causing any damage or offence, and by contributing to the economy. We use locally owned accommodation throughout this tour. In some areas there are limited options for eating in local restaurants but wherever possible, particularly on the coast we eat out in local restaurants and make the most of the wonderful food Sri Lanka has to offer.
