According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicle the Culavamsa the site was selected by King Kasyapa (477 – 495 CE) for his new capital. He built his palace on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colourful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock, he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The name of this place is derived from this structure —Sīhāgiri, the Lion Rock. The capital and the royal palace were abandoned after the king's death. It was used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century.

Polonnaruwa is the second most historical city in Sri Lanka. It was made the capital of Sri Lanka after Anuradhapura. The second most ancient of Sri Lanka's kingdoms, Polonnaruwa was first declared the capital city by King Vijayabahu I, who defeated the Chola invaders in 1070 to reunite the country once more under a local leader.

Today the ancient city of Polonnaruwa remains one of the best-planned archaeological relic sites in the country, standing testimony to the discipline and greatness of the Kingdom's first rulers. Its beauty was also used as a backdrop to film scenes for the Duran Duran music video Save a Prayer in 1982. The ancient city of Polonnaruwa has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

End of the tour

  1. Edison O. Shah:

    Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable; he taught us a lot about Sri Lanka’s history, nature, and Sri Lankans. We enjoyed comfortable accommodations and an enjoyable itinerary. Unfortunately, it was raining as we were reaching the coastal area.

  2. Ruban:

    Happy with the trip

  3. Louella:

    Dear Serendipity tours
    I would like to provide some amazing feedback on my 8 day tour.
    Jaya was my tour guide. He quickly became my friend. He drove safely and got us places fast so I could maximise the time doing activities. He made me feel very safe and cared for wherever we went.
    I shared I like Buddhism so he pointed out temples and tailored the trip to suit me.
    He gave great information on all the city tours and even when we were driving through towns.
    I tried lots of Sri Lankan food and had the experience of eating from local shops. The hotels and activities I did were all 10/10.
    I had an incredible time and saw so many amazing places in 4 days. I would recommend Serendipity to all my friends and family back in Australia.

  4. rasimus:

    Our trip to Sri Lanka was wonderful. 8-day trip was very well planned. everything as per the tour itinerray. Very trustworthy compmay. Jaya was a wonderful guide with tons of experience and very knowldegable guide. Certainly, I would recommend this excursion!

  5. Carens:

    A few less temples and shopping, along with perhaps a few more time on the beach, might have made for a better tour, but overall, we had a great time in Sri Lanka and thoroughly appreciated the amazing 8 days program. Good accommodation, transport, guiding and Meals too.

  6. Romiel:

    The excursion was precisely as planned, and we had just completed the walk prior to the deluge; Kamal, our guide, was exceptionally kind and accommodating.

  7. Valmer:

    The trip was quite interesting, and the most essential thing is that it is a private tour. We skipped a lot of tourist attractions and instead chose to have leisure time, which was amazing. The trip was very well planned with nice, safe hotels and good food.

  8. Martina:

    Wonderful Sri Lanak trip with a very helpful guide

  9. Julie:

    The 8-day trip was just amazing! Because I had never done anything similar to this before, I was unsure of what to anticipate, but I am so happy that I decided to book the trip with serendipity tours. I was taken aback to see such a large number of tourists from other countries in Sri Lanka. Nearly all of the hotels that we went to were completely occupied.
    Every single one of the hotels was of a high quality, it was clean and safe, it had a fantastic car, and the guide was really kind and knowledgable. Victor was an excellent tour guide who possessed a wealth of knowledge regarding the nation, its people, its culture, and the majority of other aspects of the country. I shall always hold dear the memories that I collected on my journey.

  10. Rumy:

    Just got back from an eight-day trip in Sri Lanka. It was a great trip, and I would suggest Sri Lanka in general… As a private tour in a nice car, the trip was very relaxed and gave everyone the most privacy possible. Chamith, our driver/guide, showed us the places very well. Bring some pens for the kids you meet while walking…

  11. Fred Thomas:

    What a wonderful experience it was to drive this nation with Chameera at the helm!
    He definitely has extensive knowledge of Sri Lanka, including its interiors and exteriors, as well as how to navigate it. He can maneuver past buses, dogs, elephants, and tooks with the horn like a pro. His driving gave us a great sense of security and safety. Well done, sir. Thank you.
    I also submitted a review for the actual tour that we went on. I heartily advise using Seerendipity tours to arrange your travel and excursions in Sri Lanka.

  12. Victor Jim Yong:

    Our chance to find the 8-day tour of Sri Lanka was through the serendipity website. We then called them on WhatsApp. We got in touch with them just a few weeks before our trip. They answer questions quickly and are very helpful. They changed some of the plans and made the tour unique for us. Our tour guide, Rohan, showed them all the places I had written down and was always on time. He told us a lot of useful things, which made our trip fun and interesting. If you want to have an amazing trip to Sri Lanka, this 8-day tour is the way to go.

  13. Elsam Ali:

    Simply Sri Lanka is a great trip for a first time to Sri Lanka! Great itinerary which is a mix between intense city days and chilled days by the sea. A great local organization which gave us a good discount upon hearing that we are foreign diplomats, working in Colombo. Still, not much travellers on the way, even the lockdown restrictions are fully withdrawn.

  14. Minoli silva:

Nice guide and well paid off.

    Tijdens ons bezoek aan Sri Lanka de mooiste verborgen plekjes ontdekt door middel van een rondleiding met Amith. Hij neemt de tijd, loodst je vlot door de mooie plekjes in Sri Lanka en deelt graag zijn parate kennis over zijn land. Hij voelt op een natuurlijke manier aan waar uw interesses liggen en past de rondleiding daar gemakkelijk op aan. Kortom: een topervaring die zeker de moeite waard is! Familie Leyssens – Brasschaat

  39. Tara:

    My husband and I travelled to Sri Lanka with the sole goal of discovering a non-touristy side of the island. We wanted to experience the real life and see a real thing, that’s why we booked the trip with a local operator. The people associated with local company are from SriLanka, and they know their country. For the 8 days trip in Sri Lanka we had Jaya as our guide.. I gotta say that this was one of the best tours we’ve ever had. He was an incredibly knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, engaging, & entertaining guide. His love for his country is visible in every move. I must say he knowns the stuff very well. His stories were fascinating. It wasn’t a one-way street though. There was a conversation going for the entire 8 days of the tour. We talked about everything – religion, wildlife, life, art, history, politics, etc. It felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. When our official tour was over, jaya stayed with us for another couple hours showing us amazing art galleries. That generosity of the heart is what Sri Lanka is all about. In the end we were saying goodbyes to a friend. We will definitely recommend Jaya to all of our friends traveling to Sri Lanka.

  40. Jacky:

    The 8 days tour with roshan was exceptionally good. He was very knowledgeable, he explained a lot about history, culture, religion, nature, wildlife and we learnt a lot. We visited a large number of temples, memorials, historical buildings, museums. He pointed out inscriptions, stumble blocks, told stories, shared history all in a very sensitive way. We had a brilliant time with roshan, learnt a lot and I would definitely recommend booking this trip.

  41. Judianne:

    I like to call this 8 dasy tour a super tour because it was a very nice trip, we enjoyed alot. Our guide Janaka was very nice young guy and he knows how to handle a big family like ours. He can understand the mentality of young and old. he did a great job making a nice trip for us. Good hotels, food, vehicle, everything is good.

  42. Monika:

    We booked the 8 days Sri Lanka trip with the local company and it was a very nice trip.

  48. Caroline (Julia):

  49. Kawa:

    For people who normally like to explore this fascinating island independently this is an excellent tour. It gives you security and enables easy comfortable and interesting travel adventures with one of the best tour organizations. The tour is perfect and offers a chance to share experiences and learn about Sri Lankan cultures and places without any hassle. Good hotels, excellent service, caring guide and good price.

  50. Phillipa:

    Incredible seerendipity! We had the most amazing adventure with Seerendipity and would like to personally thank our friendly guide Sudesh for giving us an amazing opportutnity to explore Sri Lanka. He was our guide for two weeks and he did a fantastic job. It was our first time in Sri Lankan and south Asia and we would not have had the same Sri Lankan experience if it wasn’t for Sudesh and the brilliant tour organized by Seerendipity. The optional Village tour with cooking class was very special and the it was very well planned to give us best experince, I love the rural setting with paddy fields, lakes, jungle and cozy small houses. We have many happy memories of meeting the wonderful people in the villages we visited, especially the beautiful, happy smiling children.

  51. Stefan:

Interaction with the locals and the cooking lesson immersed you into the daily lives of the people. A good choice.

  54. Stuart:

    Sri Lanka is not to be missed. The sights are incredible, the food is amazing and the people of Sri Lanka are so kind! One of the best and most interesting trips I’ve been on.

  55. Chantal :

    This trip was fantastic! I wasn’t sure what to expect as I hadn’t done anything like this before but I’m so glad I booked it. I was surprised to see so much of foreign travellers in Sri Lanka. Most hotels that we visited were almost full.
    All the hotels were of a good standard, clean safe, excellent vehicle, very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Victor was a fantastic tour guide and he had a very knowledge on the country, its people, culture and most other areas. I will cherish the memories of this trip forever.

  56. Helga:

    A wonderful trip, well organised. So good to have a tour guide, felt very safe despite pandemic situation.

  57. Helen sim:

    Excellent trip with a nice mix of nature, wildlife, culture, and fascinating countryside. The best part of the trip for us was the beach stay it was wonderful. Our guide sham was a very nice guy with good knowledge and experience handling groups. Good food, nice and clean accommodation, best price too.

  58. Romano mazil:

    Early morning rise almost every day during the trip; however, we had plenty of time in the beach resort. We visited a large number of cultural places, historical monuments and temples. It is interesting to know that many thousands of years building are still well preserves. Nice beaches with snow white, clean sand. Plenty of chances for diving, snorkeling, surfing, water sport. However, we were bit short of time for it as we had to leave for Male next day. Tour guide was excellent.

  59. Brendon Karl:

    Tour was very good. We covered a lot of ground in Sri Lanka and travellers nearly thousands kilometers. The tour was bit strenuous sometimes with travelling and walking in tourist sites. However, it was interesting. Gantha was very nice tour guide and gave us plenty of time to relax.

  60. Jacklena:

    Early morning start but vehicle broke down so couldn’t be picked up from our hotel so was contacted and requested to catch a cab across town. That was all good and I was reimbursed for the taxi ride. Nice driver and tour guide. Fantastic tour itinerary and it was very suitable private tour for a family. We did not take a tour for a long time due to the pandemic, however, this trip to Sri Lana was fantastic. After a long time we enjoyed our holiday a lot. It was a fantastic break for the entire family. The kids enjoyed the trip a lot. All sightseeing tour are private and gave us plenty of space and privacy to enjoy the trip.

  61. Desmind:

    Great guide with heaps of local knowledge. The places were interesting and the optional tours were well chosen. I had a wonderful time.

  62. Lesley:

    Very cool trip around the country and it covers important historical cultural monuments. We were surprised by see the rich cultural heritage of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is also of nature (wildlife and Flora). We had one of the best safari in our life. Guide was excellent and tour was very well planned.

  63. Alex babu:

    I like when guides share the country history and information about where we are driving as we go. Chami was very informative. Despite the pandemic there was a lot touristy than I expected. My advice would be follow the health guidelines as much as possible. However, all hotels and tourist sites follows the protocols introduced by the health authorities, we felt very safe. Over all experience is very good.

  64. Anita:

    Would highly recommend. Our private tour guide Sam was amazing, saw so much in the few days and had lots of fun. Perfect for everyone.

  65. Jerome:

    The trip was excellent with Sri Lanka;’s cultural triangle. The cultural part of the trip was excellent. rest of the country was also very interesting with fascinating flora, Faun and very humble friendly people. I enjoyed each day with something new and exciting to see.

  66. Chales Mc mahon:

    Excellent Sri Lanka trip with all major tourist attractions. The tour was perfectly organized and felt very safe with our driver/guide thushan. Good hotels, good food and excellent service.

  67. mendis:

    We ventured on the trip a few days before the starts of the second wave of COVID-19. however, the hotels and tourist sites are still empty. only a few local travellers can be seen on the way. Very good for local travellers and hotels are giving extremely attractive discounts. Very good Sri Lanka trip with a bit of everything, busy metropolis cities, laid-back countryside, ancient monuments, wildlife parks, pristine forests, hill country and pristine beaches. You get to see a large part of Sri Lanka. Our guide Kusum was excellent, knowledgeable and passionate and bought the experience to life. I highly recommend this itinerary.

  68. Jennie:

    Had an amazing trip. Big, comfortable sedan. gimhan was informative and fun. The hotels we stayed at were amazing, not big properties, but very clean, comfortable, safe and near the tourist places. Loved the places we visited. This trip gave me everything it said it would and more. Absolutely loved it!

  69. Majeed sani:

    Our local guide was a chatter box, giving us information endlessly. He was very well knowledgeable on his country and its culture, nature wildlife.

  76. Anmber:

    If you want a explore the island within a short period of time deep and immerse in Sri Lanka’s history, sights and cultural practices, this trip is a must. Jehan is an excellent guide and he will open your eyes to the country in a unique and memorable way.

  77. Kamen:

    I feel this is the best time to travel in Sri Lanka. All hotels are largely empty and toruist places are visited only by few visitors a day. everything can be explore in our own pace and peacefully. Our guide Gayan was fantastic. good hotels, food and guide most importantly very affordable.

  78. Eklatinrd:

    After having a compulsory lazy holiday in a beach resort (quarantine), we booked this 8 days trip, get out and see the whole Country, and get 1o1 interaction with the People, the Culture, and most importantly the Food. Everythign was great and our guide did an excellent job giving us a whole lot of information about his beautiful country.

  79. O.pereira:

    I couldn’t recommend seerendipity and their 8 days trip! I was travelling with my family members and had a very great trip. Our tour leader was an absolutely good and very friendly joung guy and it was the perfect way to see Sri Lanka.

  80. Pri Ouseph:

    We finished the trip in the first week of march and it was great. You’ll see lots! Make use of free time to do your own thing or travel with your ytravel buddies. Embrace things that do not go as expected. All a part of the experience.

  81. Suman Khan:

    Sigiriya rock fortress is magnificent and Dambulla golden temple is even more interesting with its hundreds of statues and paintings. Nice trip with nature culture and wildlife.

  82. Solomon:

    Perfect trip for a first-timer with an excellent blend of nature, culture, wildlife and much much more. Guide Raman was very good and excellent knowledge guy.

  83. Salem Oza:

    A fantastic Sri Lanka trip with many thrilling activities such as trekking, hiking, visiting museums, beaches, historical monuments, wildlife parks too much to see within a week. Well invested 8 days. Service is perfect and very friendly service. Most importantly sam our guide was very knowledgable and caring.

  87. serine rich:

    This 8 days Sri Lanka is a complete snapshot of Sri Lanka, it provided a great first experience of Srilanka for our family and we’re lucky to have a great driver/guide, who is very attentive to us most importantly ot our small kids.

  90. Prijaz:

    A perfect match for our family. We got a big van with plenty of space for us and our luggage. Our Guide Sam was very helpful and kids friendly, We all enjoyed a lot.

  91. Jennal wu:

    Excellent trip itinerary covering off an introduction to Srilanka. Includes modern cities, ancient monuments, hill country resorts, uncrowded wildlife parks, smaller towns and villages, and several modes of transport, so people feel like they have seen and experienced a good chunk of this tropical nationa. Great stress free way to see the country.

  92. Ludwig rude:

    The company organized the cost-free pick up from our beach on the south coast, otherwise, it could have been an expensive transfer for us. Very interesting trip with a fascinating mix of culture, nature, wildlife and many more.

  93. Binoy Tank:

    This 8 days Sri lanka trip is excellent for those new to Sri Lanka and combines so many different elements of Srilanka in one short week- amazing temples, forts, stupas, and palaces, quiet rural villages, the bumpy ride through the pristine forest of Udawalawe national park and the history of Galle and Kandy as well, with lots of different places to stay (wonderful hotels). Sri Lanka is a place of such contrasts, I felt like we got a glimpse into the real Sri Lanka on this tour, while still taking in the major tourist sites we really couldn’t miss. The food throughout the trip was excellent, we didn’t get sick at all and our personal driver/guide Kusum was funny and very organized. It made travel (on so many types of transport) a breeze. Take hand sanitizer, earplugs, a warm jacket if visiting in winter (Nuwara Eliya quite cold in Jan/ Feb) and a sense of adventure and you’ll have a great time. Our only downside to this trip was the fact we didn’t get to see a leopard at Yala NP, but we did see herds of elephants, crocodiles, monkeys and indian deer, so all is not lost of the tigers are playing hard to find.

  94. Edward:

    A great trip that is jam packed with activities for one week. You see a lot of Sri Lanka in one week and I only wish I was staying here for longer. Be ready to be exhausted at the end of your trip. The tour guides are amazing and you learn so much from them.

  95. Brenda F:

    Seerendipity is a cultural and environmentally friendly company oozing in local knowledge. I’ve travelled alone and with my daughter and love the authenticity of seerendipity.

  96. Olivier obuchowski:

    It is a pity we had only a few hours in Negombo, such a nice beach. However, the overall experience was very good with Rohan (our driver guide).

  97. Gina bass:

    I would highly recommend this trip. Our guide, Kusum was excellent. Most of the days were jam packed if you do all the optional activities but still a little bit of down time towards the end. I felt like we got to experience some of the true culture but also see the important tourist bits. Accommodation was better than expected.

  98. Alisan Bishek:

    Amazingly hospitable people, pity about enhanced security checks but understandable, it won’t sort out political dissent, only debate and discussion may

  99. Edward:

    Good trip

  100. Mahmood abbas:

    Excellent trip with proper planing

  101. Johnson S:

    Great trip with an amazing local guide. Lots of flexibility during the days off, to fit in a day of surfing, shopping or hanging by the hotel. Hotels are basic but clean and safe.

  102. Alaxender kelmens:

    Sri Lanka was amazing. So many locals were excited to see tourists returning and were happy to have us visit. I felt safe the entire time. Beaches, Jungle, Temples, Wildlife, Food this country has everything!

  103. Menaz mulan:

    There was a lot of sightseeing but same times we had plenty of time to relax, most importantly the trip was private giving us plenty of room to enjoy.

  104. Silvia somen:

    The wildlife safari was a really nice experience and I never had the opportunity to watch such a large number of a wild elephant in one place. Excellent place and our guide Fernando was very good.

  105. Rasheed Khan:

    The trip was amazingly well organised and included lots of great activities in a short space of time and gave us a great insight into Sri Lanka’s history, wildlife and culture. Supun our tour leader was exceptional his enthusiasm and knowledge was second none!

  106. Shafeeque:

    Just returned from Sri Lanka after Sri Lanka 8 days trip. It was a nice trip and can highly recommend it and Sri Lanka in general… Being a private tour in a comfortable vehicle the trip was very relaxing and had the maximum privacy. Our driver/guide Chamith did a great job showing us the sights. Take some pens for the kids you meet on the trekking days…!

  107. Rianna krestien:

    The very affordable trip we could have aid 2 times more if we booked with a tour operation france.

  108. Ramesh wardan:

    Very interesting trip, most importantly it is a private tour, we had omitted many tourist places and opted to have leisure, fantastic.

  109. Anddre pearson:

    Simply srilanka offers a wonderful opportunity to discover the most important historical places of Sri Lanka and many of them are UNESCO world heritage sites. The places that we visited on this 8 days trip has an amazing mix of cultures and traditions that represent the great variety and complexity of the Srilanka culture. In just 8 days this srilanka trip will take you from the busy streets of old Colombo and on to magnificent sigiriya rock . Moving on travelers will touch waterfalls, tea gardens, mountains, wildlife parks and beaches and wonderful bazaars of Kandy that are especially distinguished for its precious stones….

  110. Farid Rizvi:

    This trips gets you to experience many fascinating things about Sri Lanka and it covers a huge area in Sri Lanka. Be prepared for long drive. Overnight in good hotels with delicious food. Hill clountry train tip is definitely an experience. This trip is not a holiday destination but a way to experience this fascinating country.

  111. Salem fronteddu:

    A very poor trip. We did not feel safe during the ride, it was driven too fast. We were on a family trip with just 5 people, we got a mini-van, which had too small seats. Very exhausting and we got sick. Hotels are except the first hotel, where the room was bit old.

  112. Zelanika rode:

    Very interesting trip and it feels like someone had stolen our time because we did not even feel that we have spent 8 days in Sri Lanka.

  113. Ronnie gerhard:

    Very happy with the trip

  114. Chang wu:

    Very balanced Sri Lanka tour with lots of things to see and do, with plenty of down time to recover. Our driver/guide silva was verry knowledgeable, approachable and fun.

  115. Prakur melag:

    Very interesting tour program with many interesting places such as temples, wildlife, nature and culture.

  116. Brendon joyce:

    This was our first trip to Srilanka and simply srilanka was brilliant we saw many fascinating things and our driver/guide Kamal ensured we experienced true srilanka , we felt safe on all occasions making sure we dined at places that were clean and good value.

    Each day it was difficult to see how they could keep the standard up, it was excellent. A varied insight into cultural triangle, hill country, beachess…the list goes on, local life and transport as well as the iconic sights and experiences. All aided by an excellent driver/guide.

  118. Gabriele:

    Good trip and lots to see. Lots of free time though. Good accommodation with delicious food . wildlife safari, boat tour and the cooking lesson were the highlights

  119. Kasim polen:

    Very good trip

  120. Jasmin Avihazar:

    If doing simply Sri lanka, you better look another Sri lanka trip. This tour doesn’t do justice to what can be seen and enjoyed in ancient cities in Sri lanka like Sgiriya.

  121. amy Kordell:

    We had an amazing time. Loved the trekking, walking, jeep safari and exploring ancient monuments. Our tour guide, Roshan, really went the extra mile with everything, even organising a surprise birthday party at teh hotel for my husband,- with cake, balloons and fireworks!

  122. Kiara demel:

    We had already travelled to the east coast a few years back, therefore we opted to this south coast trip with hill country. very nice experience I feel this time trip is better than the earlier occasion.

  123. Reena Chaudhry:

    We have just returned after simply Sri Lanka tour ( Departure: 02.02.2020). Our expectation was to discover and enjoy some of the history, culture and lots of local colour of Sri Lanka while having some peaceful time on the beach and we were not let down at all….

  124. Arsalus:

    Highly recommend Sri Lanak itinerary – An exceptional fun packed holiday with lots of adventures and activities, Exceptional driver/guide (Sam).

  125. Nelna Joseph:

    Very good planning and our guide Sam was a very knowledgeable and experienced guy. The tour was very interesting.

  126. Jamy Billings:

    Can definitely recommend this trip to anyone considering travelling to Sri Lanka. With an amazing local guide you get to experience everything this amazing country has to offer from culture, to landscapes, history and religion.. oh and the food!!!!!!!!!!!! RICE & CURRY

  127. Irfan:

    Sri Lanka, So much history and such a beautiful and fun place to visit. The people are wonderful and we never once felt unsafe or uneasy about what we were doing.

  128. Pratika pessman:

    Amazing Sri Lanka trip with my family members. Excellent tour guide/driver. Jaya went above and beyond the call of duty, organizing things for us to do even on his day off. You will not be disappointed. Great food, great sights. Amazing.

  129. Thames wright:

    this is a very well organised tour with Malan with plenty of fun and laughter along the way

  130. Eli Alwis:

    This 8 days trip was a wonderful introduction to Sri Lanka. Colour, experiences, excitingly pace of traffic giving you a (safe) thrill! Great informative guide (Malan) and being a private tour everything is happening to your wish.

  131. Maurija:

    Simply srilanka tour was a well paced and excellent overview of all major aspects of Sri Lanka. A good balance of modern srilankan life and historical aspects was achieved without being too touristy. Very good guide with excellent driving.

  132. Mohamed Asi:

    The simply Srilanka trip was the perfect way to start to get to know this tropical island. Our guide (he was also driving the car) Sachi, was knowledgeable, super organised and great fun making the whole experience special. I would recommend this trip wholeheartedly – if you are unsure – Just do it!

  133. Saradhi Malhotra:

    A great itinerary for those who have a relatively short time but want to see most of the Sri Lanka.

  134. Charlie:

    A very well organized trip, good food, comfortable vehicle, nice hotels, the tour worth every penny.

    First time with Seerendipity and it was a truly memorable trip. Excellent service and good price. Great driver/guide and a mix of inclusions, activities, and experiences hard to find elsewhere.

  136. Mriadas thomas:

    Simply Sri Lanka is a great itinerary for those who have a relatively short time but want to see the most of the country. It is tiring (particularly first half) but it is worth it. Our guide, Sam, was amazing. I always felt safe through the trip and cannot recommend highly enough.

  137. Pandey sukhija:

    Simply Sri Lanka tour was an amazing overview of a beautiful country, Sri Lanka. If you are lucky enough to have our tour leader Silva you will leave Sri Lanka with a myriad of knowledge on their history and culture……… Enjoy

  138. Irmgrad tabetabe:

    Many thanks to the Seerendipity team for our wonderfully enjoyable and informative Sri Lanka Tour. We really got to engage with the locals thanks to our fantastic guide whose knowledge and passion for promoting his country and sharing its wonders was inspiring. Our MANY meals of rice with curries was amazing and even the accommodation which was, at times, a little up and down it was certainly value for money!. I would highly recommend this trip to many others especially those with reasonable fitness and a search for adventure!

  139. Tamer Imeri:

    Having never done a trip in SrrLanka before, we didn’t have an idea what to expect. Our trip from Colombo-cultural triangle-hill country-south SriLanka has been fantastic. We would highly recommend this trip.

  140. Charles Renaud:

    Visiting Sri Lanka was a great experience and meaningful for me. Thanks to an excellent guide, Kusum, the trip was safe and memorable.

  141. Olger winkwlman:

    This Sri Lanka trip was a little disappointing, some places mentioned in the itinerray were far to reach just to sleep there, the accommodation were beyond basic and good food, and service. Very comfortable vehicle with the well knowledgeable driver/guide.

  142. Jarin:

    High recommend this trip. Everything about it was amazing. It is the perfect trip to see the highlights of Sri Lanka!

  143. Kessy Haisam:

    I just wanted to get a ‘taste’ of Srilanka, but after this 8 days trip I want to know and see more about this amazing country. I haven’t seen anything like it anywhere else. The trip was organized perfectly. Thank you.

  144. Asmeel khan:

    The simply srilanka trip will give you a wonderful flavour of this tropical island. We enjoyed visiting cities, staying luxurious hotels, admiring beautiful architecture and learning more about srilanka’s fascinating history, culture and it’s people. Everything was organised to perfection so that we could see things that you couldn’t easily organise independently.

  145. Ikram Hossain:

    Excellent private trip with only me and my husband. Hotels are very good and offerede delicious food. Our driver/guide Shan has brilliant communication skills with exceptional knowledge regarding the srilanka culture and areas visited

  146. Jerin menaa:

    Would Highly recommend the simply srilanka Tour to anyone who is interested in discovering a truly beautiful Country , Eating a delicious variety of traditional food and having an overall unforgettable experience.

  147. Hannah sampson:

    A Fantastic Experience of Sri Lanka, it’s culture, traditions and unique environment and people.

  148. Soraya:

    The 8 days tour was good, we really enjoyed srilanka. The food and lodging was a huge standout. A few less ancient monuments and maybe a few more activities together with more time on the beach would have improved the tour.

  149. Hannah Ismail:

    A great way to experience the food, the colour, the craziness and beauty of srilanka! If you like to travel with an open mind and love to experience a completely different culture then I cannot recommend this tour enough!

  150. Navarrette:

    Simply srilanka trip was excellent. Very good combination of the classics with most important places as well as less known places which made the tour more authentic. We were given excellent service by Chami (our driver/guide) . The trip includes good hotels, food and excellent transport. Efficient organisation. I can definitely recommend this trip!

  151. Sara Kaur:

    Amazing trip, brilliant guide, incredible experience we will never forget. Best trip we’ve been on.
