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.

Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya is the administrative capital of Nuwara Eliya District, with a picturesque landscape and temperate climate. It is at an altitude of 1,868 m (6,128 ft) and is considered to be the most important location for tea production in Sri Lanka. The city is overlooked by Pidurutalagala, the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka. Nuwara Eliya is known for its temperate, cool climate – the coolest area in Sri Lanka.

Many of the buildings retain features from the colonial period such as the Queen's Cottage, General's House, Grand Hotel, Hill Club, St Andrew's Hotel and Town Post Office. New hotels are often built and furnished in the colonial style. Visitors to the city can wallow in its nostalgia of bygone days by visiting the landmark buildings.

You’ll find rolling hills clad with row upon row of luscious, green tea plants. It’s often shrouded in a fine mist and is the perfect escape from the heat of Sri Lanka’s wonderful beaches (if you need an escape!).

Ravana waterfall
This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in height and cascades from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop. During the local wet season, the waterfall turns into what is said to resemble an areca flower with withering petals.

Stilt fisherman
Stilt fishing is a method of fishing unique to the island country of Sri Lanka, known as “the Pearl of the Indian Ocean”. The fishermen sit on a cross bar called a ‘Petta’ tied to a vertical pole and drive into the sand a few meters offshore. From this high position, the fishermen cast their line and wait until a fish comes along to be caught. Although the approach looks primitive and ancient,

Hikkaduwa
Hikkaduwa National Park is one of the three marine national parks in Sri Lanka. The national park contains a fringing coral reef with a high degree of biodiversity. The area was declared a wildlife sanctuary on May 18, 1979, and then on August 14, 1988, upgraded to a nature reserve with an extended land area. The growth of the number of visitors in the next 25 years increased the degradation of the coral reef. To reduce the effects on the ecosystem, the reef was declared a national park on September 19, 2002.

Galle
The fort has a colourful history, and today has a multi-ethnic and multi-religious population. 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.

Unawatuna beach
Unawatuna Beach is located just south of Galle, the main city in the south and 125km from Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. This 4km expanse of palm-fringed sand is said by some to rank amongst the twelve best beaches in the world. This beach is a paradise for all those who yearn to enjoy the silence of the sea and dive deep into the blue waters of the ocean. There is a reef protecting the beach, which makes it perfectly a safe haven for bathing. Other major attractions of this southern beach include shallow waters for swimming and diving. Within its reach, there is an accessible, reasonably well-preserved coral reef that serves as the base for snorkelling.

Madu river safari
In the global context, the ecological importance of this site has garnered it the ‘Ramsar Wetland’ status in 2003 being the second largest wetland in Sri Lanka with a colossal 915 hectares with 23 islands inhabited by nearly 300 families. The River Sanctuary is now a Tourist Development Area and a Special Area Managed (SAM) by the Coast Conservation Department. Balapitiya is where the ‘Madu Ganga’ makes its home.

End of the trip

  1. Mallick Mahale:

    The splendour Sri Lanka tour is a great way to visit all the must see sites, try the local food and of course interact with the locals of Sri Lanka.

  2. Louise:

    The tour through the cultural triangle, hill country, beaches, south coast was a unique experience that I will not forget for the rest of my life. We saw a lot in a week and everything was super organized. Our guide Gihan always took excellent care of us and always tried to make sure that everyone was fine and that everyone got their money’s worth. I particularly liked that he gave us a lot of knowledge about the culture, history, religion, country and people. The hotel and our private bus, which we always traveled with, were all in very good condition, making the journey very comfortable. I always felt very safe on the trip (despite the challenging time in Sri Lanka due to the economic down turn) and would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see the Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle but doesn’t want to sacrifice much of your precious time. The tour is particularly ideal for people who love see a lot of Sri Lanka in short period of time and save money!

    Excellent Sri Lanka trip, Very well planned with good hotels, good food and excellent driver/guide.

The quarantine hotel was good and all the facilities were available in the hotel but we were not able to go out of the resiort. After the PCR test on day 15th, they allowed us to go out. The trip was excellent and very well planned. Fantastic program, it is well balanced with history, culture, nature, and wonderful Sri Lanak food. Our guide kusum didma nice job and we are very happy with his service.

  27. Jerome sambhi:

    We were bit hesitant before planing the trip. But we thought that we need to take this trip as we have not gone out for a many months due to the pandemic. We needed a break very badly and wanted to travel. This was our first foreign trip since the start of the pandemic. The thing was very satisfactory and everything was very well and thoughtfully organized. Very well-chosen hotels that stick to health protocols and they provide very good service. The tour itinerary was well organized and the timing was perfect when visiting tourist attractions (there were separate time slots for locals and foreign travellers when visiting tourist places). Our guide chamil did a fantastic job and we felt very safe with him. We did not mingle with local people and we were not allowed to do that.

  28. Ian:

    We were bit hesitant to take the trip amidst the pandemic but soon after starting the tour, we felt we were safe during the amazing trip. A great, supported way to see the highlights in Sri Lanka. The tour leader was so knowledgeable.

  33. Emma mohammed:

    What a fantastic way of exploring Sri Lanka – the tour is full of interesting places, it showcases some of the most important places of Sri Lanka like ancient temples, national parks, hill country etc. Gamini our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was so well organised, wonderful job done by Seerendipity tours.

  34. Kamal hasan:

    We had a really great private tour with saman. Our guide saman was a very nice and friendly guy. We saw lots, did lots and all made very easy by the Seerendipity team.

  35. Rodrigo gheena:

    Very nice trip to Sri Lanka and relax

  36. Emma sulaiman:

    I chose Seerendipity after considering many tours of other companies. Many other tour operators offer a similar trip package as group tours and the price is the same as of this trip. Since this is my first trip after COVID-19, I did not want to be a CORONA patient and wanted to go for a private. Afterall the price difference between this private trip and group tour with a similar itinerary si not much. Our Guide Gamini was excellent.

  37. Fernandez:

    If you need sunshine, palm trees, encounter wildlife, leopard spotting, coconuts, beaches, trekking, watching birds, friendly people, monkeys, culture, delicious food, coconut alcohol and tea, go to Sri lanka! Totally safe time there thanks to our wonderful driver/guide Kusum. Fantastic trip with good hotels, comfortable vehicle and hassle-free private tour.

    Sri Lanka was lockdown for 3 months from March and it is being a few months since the tourist places are opened for travellers. All places have safety protocol implemented but hotels and tourist places are empty.

  38. Andres paleno fernando:

    Splendour tour Sri Lanka is a great trip with a mixture of history, culture, relaxation, great scenery and local experiences. I had such a great time and have made memories I will cherish forever. Most tourist sites are still largely vacant and hotels are also still empty.

  39. Lamia neiza:

    We enjohyed the trip a lot and it was a kind of trip we expected. We had only few days for the trip because we wanted to spend time on the beaches and have leisure. The trip was just 3 days but it includes many things such as hsitprical paces, temnples, wildlife, hill country, rainforest and many more. our gude janaka was very good and evry happy with his service.

  40. jhina jakobson:

    The splendour tour was splendid. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and the people are very frindly and they know the guest treatments. Splendour tour is a great way to get to know this beautiful country and its friendly people. It packs in touring, historical sites, trekking, villages, hill country and beaches. Just one warning – be prepared for the fact that your face will ache from smiling so much!

  41. Vinay noor:

    The local company was recommended by one of our friends, who had done an adventure tour with Seerendipity. But we opted for this 7 days trip with a bit of nature, culture and wildlife. We did not want to get engaged in adventure activities because of our kids. Everything was a memorable private trip for our family.

  42. Johannes:

    Visiting cultural monuments, wildlife parks and trekking to the waterfall, nice trip

  43. Linda:

    Excellent tour

    Splendour Sri Lanka is a trip you MUST take. The people are so friendly, the scenery is stunning and the food is amazing. Travelling through scenic tea country, tea plantations & chilling on the pristine he beaches on the west coast were highlights for us. We loved meeting local people on our hikes and having local meals. Our Guide Sumal was a clever guy and provided all the information that we were interested in. He made our trip so memorable.

The highlights such as wildlife safari, lion rock, the cave temples, glamping, fresh water creeks, tooth relic temple, the stupas, are incredible sights. We were very safe and never felt threatened. I recommend, do yourself a favour and go! You won’t be disappointed. And our driver/guide, Kusum was fantastic, the best guide we have ever had on a tour.

  61. Gary:

    Sri Lankan splendour was an amazing experience, our guide Shimantha was the most knowledgeable and interesting person that certainly made our trip.

    This trip had some amazing sights, which we were privileged to experience. Sri Lankan culture is so diverse and very interesting. We appreciated everything we seen and did,

  63. Janette brigitte:

    At Elephant hotel Sigiriya, we lost our money. It was stolen from the safety deposit box and hotel did not take any action in that regards. However, the local tour operator directed us to the tourist police. The police investigated the complaint promptly and ordered the hotel to refund our money. Our driver/Guide Ruwa was very helpful and he was al the time with us until the entire issue was solved, fantastic service.

  64. Elin Park:

    I have always been apprehensive about travelling alone but with Serendipity it is made super easy. You get to see so much in a short space of time. Highly recommended

  65. sulaiman:

    Seerednipity tours is a cultural and environmentally friendly company oozing in local knowledge. You travel with a fun like minded bunch of people to learn and get up close and personal with local people doing their local things. I’ve travelled alone and with my daughter and love the authenticity of Seerendipity.

    An excellent trip for a first-time visitor, everything is perfectly organized from the arrival to the departure.

  69. paul adulson:

    According to the itinerary, we had to get up early morning every day because the itinerary is fully packed, however, we changed the itinerary our own, instead of giving priority to visit places we opted to have some leisure, and not visited a few places along the way. But our driver/guide refused to pay back what they have a charged us for those missing sites from us.

  70. Simon pires:

    It was raining a lot during the trip

  71. Francisco Hraste:

    The only way to see Sri Lanka. This is an unspoilt and beautiful country and culture that we should all take time to appreciate. And the food – YUM!! Just do it.

    Our family (Me, My wife and 3 Kids) wanted to have an enjoyable break fro a ling time. We did not have much time together for a long time. This is truly a private tour, no intruders. We had the maximum privacy where ever we go. Hotels are very good, good meals, clean rooms and most importantly good price.

  76. Gibson:

    7 days Sri Lanka was an amazing experience. It was a very well planned trip and our guide Samantha was the excellent, very knowledgeable. The tour includes many dozens of interesting places and activities, what I most liked was the wildlife tour and the beach stay. Not forget the price, I paid just a fraction of money what a tour operator from the UK demanded

    Sri Lanka splendour is a fantastic way to get an insight into the culture and history of Sri Lanka. I now know more about the Tamil people have walked through their villages in the tea plantations. Our guide Nimesh and his crew were excellent. It’s all the little things that are included in Seerendipity tours tour that make it.

  81. pamela pearson:

    Very friendly guide and drive very safely. First I was afraid to drive on the left-hand drive road, I felt that vehicles were coming on to us, but our driver was very good and he was driving very safely feeling, we felt very safe with him.

    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 as well as relaxing on a beautiful beach. Sam our driver/guide, 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!

  88. Ricky ashford:

    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.

  89. Mira lagrade:

    Would highly recommend. Our tour guide/driver was amazing and he made it a memorable trip for us.

  90. Timothy Ouyang:

  91. schofield peter:

    Just returned from Sri Lanka after magnificent splendour tour with Seerendipity.

    The very good local tour company, which goes the extra mile to make their customers happy.

  97. Janin Jalal:

    Really loved the Sri Lanka splendour tour. It was the perfect mix of seeing and doing. Climbing Sigiriya was a fabulous experience – well worth the early morning rise. Seeing the elephants in the wild was also a highlight. Our guide, Indi, was so knowledgeable and nothing was to much trouble. Would highly recommend this tour!

  98. Immamul shah:

    we had an awesome family trip thanks to Seerendipity! The food, hotels, culture and people were amazing and everyone was so hospitable! It’s definitely worth doing.

  99. Riyana joshi:

    Excellent tour company. We were not happy with the service of guide, who came to pick us from teh airport and we complained about his service. The local company changed the driver/guide right away with Chamil. Chamil was far better than the first guy and very knowledgeable.

  100. Jajeev chandra:

    We have forgotten to collect a pair of leather boot from our last hotel, which was placed on the balcony. If you can mail it to us it could be great.

  101. Neil smith:

    Perfect tour itinerary with an interesting blend of Nature culture and history

  102. Erika Lingfer:

    Don’t be worried about the Easter trouble in Sri Lanka. Security is good and we felt 100% safe throughout. AsangaSaman our guide was amazing and we can’t thank him enough for his hard work, sense of humour and encyclopaedic knowledge. Not to mention his ‘band’! What an amazing country. Ancient culture, modern culture, wildlife on your doorstep much of the time, great food always ‘medium’ spiced! Overall a great trip I can’t recommend it highly enough.

  103. Sonum majmudar:

    Splendour Sri Lanka is an excellent tour, taking in multiple UNESCO listed heritage sites. There may also be an opportunity to see elephants and leopards. It can be very hot and humid so always good to have sun cream and water with you when out and about. The history dates back to the 6th century BC and is very interesting. Our tour leader, Sam made it an extra special trip, thank you.

  104. Meena zhang:

    Really enjoyed the splendour tour. Saman was the driver/guide of our private tour and I must say he was a perfect driver with ample knowledge on this country. He 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.

  105. Juzer Sabanah:

    Very good trip for a first timer in Sri Lanka

  106. Prakash khan:

    We had a nice trip and our guide was fantastic. The only problem was the sedan that we were travelling by giving some problems. Air-condition of the car stopped and we had to travel to the beach without AC.

  107. Alex Mutti:

    Good trip giving you a complete picture of Sri Lanka.

  108. Trishy thomas:

    Great tour of the highlights of Sri Lanka with a great variety of local food available.

  112. Genev Agnes:

    I would highly recommend this trip. Our guide, Nandana was excellent. Most of the days were jam packed 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.

  113. Gulian gilad:

    Good trip but a lot of travelling

  114. Redusa mahmoud:

    Knowledgeable guide and he always showed his maturity with our private group. Malan showed us why he loved his pretty homeland, shepherding us on an ambitious itinerary full of highlights from ancient ruins to tea plantation hikes, elephant sightings and world-class whale-watching. An informative, varied and fun trip accented by frequent culinary delights. The driver of the coach Thisera did a marvellous job and his assistance Ruwa was very friendly and kept the coat very clean every day.

  115. Christiana chehayeb:

    Very nice and knowledgable driver/guide with heaps of local knowledge. The places were interesting and very dicers from historical monuments to mountains to beaches and everything very well planned. I had a wonderful time.

    A wonderful Sri Lanka trip, well planned. So good to have a tour guide, felt safe.

  120. Natalia Jones:

    Seven jam-packed days with access to beaten track tourist spots. Fantastic adventure through four Indian cities. My favourite was southern Sri Lanka, where you get miles of miles pristine beaches. Nice hotels, good food, good vehicle and friendly guide/driver. Highly recommend!

  121. Dean Seaman:

    Yala safari was the best part of our trip. We could see 3 leopards on a huge boulder (parents and a cub).

  122. Punnoose:

    A lot of travelling within 7 days, there should be more rest long the way

  123. Rezab Jean:

    The beaches are fantastic and it is a pity that we did not have much time to rest on the beach. I definitely come back and next time will lie down on the beach for a week. Thushan was our driver/guide he was fantastic.

  124. Florina:

    One of my favourite trips. A lovely country with beautiful people. Loved the variety of destinations this trip covered. Never a dull moment with a great mix of activities. But travelled a lot, if we knew that we had to travel that much it could have been better, overall the tour is good.
