Sri Lanka Tour Summary

A land of mist-covered mountains, golden beaches, verdant valleys and lush jungles, Sri Lanka is an island paradise with a unique culture and a warm, hospitable people. Envelop yourself in its rich heritage. Visit a family-owned terra-cotta factory to see how this age-old tradition continues. Explore the ancient city of Sigiriya and visit elephant grazing grounds. See the ruins at Polonnaruwa, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and marvel at the Golden Temple of Dambulla, adorned with elaborate murals. Journey to the sacred city of Kandy, whose gilded Temple of the Tooth houses a tooth from Buddha. Delight in a performance of traditional music and dance, and visit a tea plantation in Nuwara Eliya to learn about this world-famous export. Spend a day on safari in Yala National Park. Ride a tuk-tuk during a tour of the fortified city of Galle, and see the highlights of Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital. This unique program includes first-class accommodations in seven locations, all excursions, an extensive meal plan, and wine with dinner.
