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.
The city tour includes palaces, dagobas, and temples, and provides a good example of Sri Lankan historical craftsmanship. In this 3-hour guided tour of the Ancient city of Polonnaruwa, you will cover some of the following attractions;

The Sri Lankan government and many Dutch people who still own some of the properties inside the fort are looking at making this one of the modern wonders of the world. The heritage value of the fort has been recognized by UNESCO and the site has been inscribed as a cultural heritage UNESCO World Heritage Site under criteria iv, for its unique exposition of "an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries.

The Galle Fort also houses the elite Amangalla resort hotel, located near the Dutch Reformed Church. It was originally built in 1684 to house the Dutch Governor and his staff. It was then converted into a hotel and named then as the New Oriental Hotel in 1865, which catered to the European passengers travelling between Europe and Galle Port in the 19th century.

Sri Lanka 7 days tour was an ideal activity for our family. Well balance program with time to have leisure and many interesting places lie ancient temples, national parks, city life and many many things.
Excellent Sri Lank trip itinerary and includes many interesting places such as historical monuments, temples, tea plantations, beaches, waterfalls, museums, wildlife parks etc.
trudy Gonzales– :
Such a perfect way to experience the island of Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka is a wonderful country filled with wonderful people. Chandana was the most incredible guide who loves his country so much that he makes you love it too. It was so well organised, and Chandana and the whole staff ensured we had the best time and were taken care of every step and in every way.
We arrived in Colombo very early, but Seerendipity tours agreed to pick-up us on arrival without any additional cost and we could start our tour immediately after landing. it was a great relief to us and saves our time. We were greeted by Sam on arrival, he was nice and easy going good gentleman. He was a good guide and capable of navigating safely on Sri Lankan chaotic roads. We were extremely releaved to have taken the “hire a car with driver” decision as only after a short while in the near new 6 seater van we understood that we don’t understand the traffic rules or the lack of them nor have the patience to deal with all elements of traffic – dogs, bikes, tuk tuk, busses, cars and pedestrians in no particular order. Sam drove the 5 of us skillfully through villages and townships. He helped us to get the optional activities organised and was always punctual to pick us up the next morning. His sense of humour resonated with ours and we had a lot of laughs along the way! We can highly recommend the team of Seerendipity, as prior to the actual arrival we had good communication via WhatsApp with Sanjeewa in regards to the actual itinerary of the tour. So when actually in Sri Lanka we had a customised itinerary which made the trip a Super Experience all in all!
Had a great 7 days Sri Lanka tour with Sri Lanka cultural sites, temples, museums, wildlife parks, tea plantations, and nice sandy beaches. Great mix of off the beaten track sites and tourist sites. Well planned sri lanka trip with a super friendy guide. Everything very well organized and fully satisfied with the service.
My first trip to Sri Lanka and it was terrific. Very personalized and caring service from the start to the end. Our guide Chami was very friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We arrived in Sri Lanka during the economic downturn in Sri Lanka. But we did not feel any such economical inconveniences. We drove across various parts of Sri Lanka and travellers more than 1000 km without ant problem. The itinerary was fast-paced but thoughtfully planned and so much fun. it was both comforting and incredibly fun.
ramona ingrid– :
We wanted to see the historical part of Sri Lanka because we have heard that Sri Lanka had a well-developed culture. It was amazing to see what the ancient people built in Sri Lanka. The trip includes hundreds of temples and ancient monuments. But this 7 days tour offers much more than that. beaches, wildlife, tea gardens and a lot more. wonde3rful Sri Lanka trip, really enjoyed it. Our guide Gihan was excellent and very helpful, we enjoyed the trip a lot.

Sneha Chakrabarti– :
Great highlights of many beautiful parts of Sri Lanka! we came away with a new level of awareness and education about Sri Lanka’s history and culture. We always felt very safe and had a very memorable experience, despite the many prevailing problems in Sri Lanka.
Excellent program for a big family like us (8 people), the tour has an excellent blend of places to see and activities. Ancient temple, waterfalls, wildlife tours, trekking, and leisurely stroll on the beach are some of the great things to do. Chami, our guide was very nice and easy going person. He tolerated all the mischievous activities of your young kids. Good hotels, vehicles and delicious food.
Lemona seire– :
Sri Lanka 7 days tour was a great trip, perfect for a first timers in Sri Lanka like us Hits all the right attractions, great guides, will be back to do more in India soon.
7 days Sri Lanka was short and snappy trip, filled with amazing monuments, temples, cities and with wonderful people! Prasad the guide provides a plethora of information and will show you everything from the best food to try to how the Sri Lanka ancient artisans colored more than 1500 years old paintings with natural color. It is an amazing trip if you’re short on time or if you are planning on spending more time in other parts of Sri Lanka. I had an amazing time, and am planning to return again!
Brendon Gal– :
This trip provided me and my family with everything we wanted and more – discovery of the major tourist attractions and in-depth discussion of history and culture, all in a span of 1 week! Gihan was a fantastic leader who took good care of us and readily shared his expertise, even to matters that are personal to him (wedding customs etc.). I will never forget this trip!

Our tour guide, Gayan, really went the extra mile with everything, even organising a surprise birthday party for my youngest kid in a beach restaurant,- with cake, balloons and fireworks! We felt very safe during teh trip and even we have forgotten the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kim aigene– :
Our first trip after long rest due to COVID-19. Instead of the lazy holiday, book and sit in a Hotel for a week, we wanted to get out and see bit of Sri Lanka on a private tour, and enjoy, the Culture, wildlife, nature, and most importantly the Food.
Sri Lankan was promised as the land like no other which proved to be 100% accurate. A truely beautiful country and the friendliest most welcoming people we have ever experienced.
Emogen Chong– :
Seerendipity is a perfect local company that does not rip off your wallet. This entire private tour with the luxury vehicle would have cost twice as much as what I paid for Seerendipity if I booked in my home country. Well organised tour guides who know and understand all aspects of this country’s many communities. The opportunity to be part of the everyday life of the locals was the best experience for me. Travel, accommodation, food and safety all addressed.
Renate orlando– :
The country is small but has an unprecedented diversity. The cocktail tour was amazing! I can’t recommend it too highly – we had so many different and delightful sights, activities, tastes and experiences.
This trip was fantastic. Hotels are still largely empty and did not see many tourists in popular tourist places. Gamini was our personal driver/guide and he was an excellent tour guide. If you’re considering it, do it.
Victor gabriel– :
It was fantastic with food distribution for the little ones. But I felt sorry for the little ones, however, I felt happy because I have done something to make them happy. It was the main highlight for me on this trip. Thank you for giving me such a nice experience. Excellent trip with a very knowledgeable guide, worth every penny.
Julie shenaya– :
An absolute must. Great way to see the main sights of Sri Lanka but also includes many things you would never know about/be able to do by yourself
Good trip but rain bothered us a lot. If it had been less rain we could have enjoyed more. Good hotels, guide, vehicle.
Menduls allam– :
Excellent trip and worth for money.
James neumann– :
What is a lack in this 7 days trip is leisure, there is a lot of sightseeing, and tourist attractions but very limited time to relax on the beach
Mehaun Para– :
Our trip to Sri Lanka was much, much more than we ever expected! Beautiful people, amazing places and the food is a curry lovers dream. I can’t recommend our trip enough! It was interesting to see the people are strictly adhering to COVOD-19 health rules.

Excellent 7 days with a mix of culture, nature, history and nice beaches. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and I felt very safe with our caring guide. A very comfortable vehicle, hotels and good food.
The driver tried to rip-off our wallet by charging extra for the Kandyan cultural show, but we opposed it and later he gave up his malicious intention. It was part of the trip.

I had an awesome time with a cocktail tour! The food, scenery, culture and people were amazing and everyone was so hospitable! It’s definitely worth doing.
We did not want to visit temples during the trip because they asked us to remove the headcover. But we were not given back what we paid for the entrance tickets of those temples.

An excellent trip for a family, our kids enjoyed a lot. There are many interesting activities for kids like watching animals, running in parks, exploring tea country, boating in Nuwara Eliya. We wanted to have a surprise for our kids, thanks to the 7 days trip it was fulfilled. Hotels and service are very kids friendly and safe too. Very good organization.

It was very busy in teh beginning and things got a bit calmer and laid back in the end. A lot of temples and a lot of rice and curry… The walking tour too laid back. We thought it was going to be more challenging. Overall a good trip
Mahboob Raman– :
An amazing trip which packed so much into one week but also included a plenty of leisure time. A perfect mix of city and country experiences. Our driver/guide, Kuma, went out of his way to ensure we saw the “real” Sri Lanka and interacted with the local people. Thank you Kuma! Sri Lanka needs tourists to return so if you are thinking of going do it now, Sri Lankan people will reward you with amazing hospitality and smiles!

Really enjoyed the trip. Our driver/guide Thushan was a passionate ambassador for Sri Lanka- he was interesting, informative, fun, patient and went out of his way to ensure it was a fascinating trip. The hikes up Sigiriya rock, and through the tea plantations were an absolute highlight. It is a country of amazing beauty and history, and the people were incredibly friendly and welcoming.
Allan lord– :
The tour booked directly with the local company in Colombo and it was very affordable. If we booked the trip in our home country through a Belgium tour operator we surely would have paid 2 times more. very nice trip and very well organized.
A very good trip, very knowledgeable guide

A brilliant trip with a wide range of activities that take you all around Sri Lanka from trekking through the tea plantations, climbing Lion Rock, a cooking demonstration at a local’s house, scenic hill country ride as well as relaxing on a beautiful beach. Our guide, Malan, was brilliant and without him we would not have had as an amazing a time as we did. Would definitely recommend this trip -it won’t dissapoint!

On the day we visited Sigiriya our driver/guide asked us to get up at 05.00 AM. We did not like it but did not have any other option.

An excellent and enjoyable trip. The vehicle was fantastic, clean, modern and perfect air-conditioning, the hotels were all to a good standard, and the guide was a star. Sri Lanka is a lush tropical paradise, and well worth a visit. The people are all friendly, the food and drink is cheap, and the sun always shines. Plus it’s full of loads of old stuff. What more could you want?

This trip is a great introduction to visiting the country for the first time. Friendly people, great food and stunning sights, from tea plantations to beach sunsets (no filter needed).
