Set amid the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has beguiled travellers for centuries with its striking natural beauty and over 2,000 years of culture.
Less than a third of the size of the UK, this tiny island packs a lot into its modest surface area, including no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage sites and one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Asia.
With patches of dense jungle, misty highlands swathed in incredibly green tea-plantations and expanses of wildlife-rich scrubland, the country’s landscape is refreshingly unspoilt, and you’re never more than a short drive from the palm-fringed coastline.
Glories of early Buddhist civilisation such as Anuradhapura, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Sigiriya Rock Fortress remain an important touchstone of national identity in a rich and fascinating culture with religion at its heart.

"Sri Lanka was great. We enjoyed every minute. We loved that it was so clean, with absolutely no litter that we could see on roadsides or in towns, recycling is very strong and there is no smoking in any public places. Thank you for organising such a memorable holiday for us. It was my first experience of a private tour and I was pleasantly surprised with not having to be tolerant of the foibles of a larger group." — Sue & Gillian, Brisbane, July 2018
"Our holiday here in Sri Lanka is going really well. We are very happy with our driver/guide, his vehicle, his driving, his knowledge and his sense of humour! The hotels have all exceeded our expectations, and we are even coping well with the hot and humid weather. " — Mrs Ronald , Tangambalanga , May 2018
"Our trip to Sri Lanka was fantastic and that everything went to plan - Thank you. This was third trip with Getaboutasia. Our driver Anandaraj De Silva was fantastic, as was the accommodation, food and hospitality. We found the people to be lovely and the country so interesting and diverse. On top of all that, the weather behaved! " — Mr and Mrs Millar, Perth, April 2018
" We would like to thank GetAbout Asia for arranging our recent tour of Sri Lanka. We really enjoyed ourselves and learnt so much about the history and culture of the country as we travelled around. Our driver/guide Kumar was very knowledgable and caring. He looked after us extremely well and we felt extremely safe driving with him along typical Sri Lankan roads. The itinerary was diverse and allowed us to see many aspects of Sri Lanka. Who knows, we may return and visit the northern parts and possibly return to Negombo and Galle and then do some birding. The accommodation throughout the trip was excellent and we felt really welcome at all properties. Please pass on our thanks to Kumar - he is a very approachable and personable guide/driver and full of knowledge. His command of English is very good and overall he is easy to understand. " — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, April 2018
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say “Thank you so much” for the beautiful tour of Sri Lanka. My husband and I and friends had a wonderful holiday and what an awesome experience. We really appreciate your hard work……….it was truly well taken care of and Sri Lanka is a beautiful holiday destination." — Mr and Mrs Kumar and party, Camberwell, February 2018
"Firstly, the flights. All went well, and Singapore Airlines provides an excellent service. Secondly, the accommodation. The hotels were excellent, and well located. Breakfasts were first class, and we had no trouble finding locations for lunch and dinner. All meals were great value for money. Our transport could not have been better --- an air-conditioned 10 seater van, so we had plenty of space, with a driver/guide who was an expert at handling the traffic we encountered most of the time. We could also suggest minor changes to our itinerary each day. We appreciated the fact that all entrance fees were paid for into museums and temples, and also the safari jeep tours in the national parks. All in all, we think the GetAboutAsia tour you organised was great value for money." — Marshalls and Witherall, Sydney, March 2018
"Sri Lanka was great. Everything went to plan. We found Sri Lanka to be varied and interesting and we felt that our itinerary was well put together. Given that we like outdoor activities with a bit of adventure our favourite places were Sigirya Lion Rock and exploring the Udawalawe National Park in the Jeep. Our guide was as usual excellent." — Mr and Mrs Barker, Sydney, March 2018
"We had a fantastic trip to Sri Lanka. Everyone enjoyed it and could not fault the holiday at all. Everything went according to plan – couldn’t have been better. All the hotels were excellent, the service faultless and the food superb. It is a very rare occasion when you can see a leopard in the wild (the guide and the driver were equally as excited as us!). I would like to commend our guide / driver (Bandu.) He went out of his way to do everything to make our time in Sri Lanka a great success and I would recommend his services to anyone in the future. All in all we had a wonderful time and are already contemplating our next holiday. Many thanks for all your help!" — Jarrit Family, Melbourne, January 2018
"Wish I was back there now! We loved our guide and had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka and would recommend Getaboutasia." — Mr and Mrs Eather, Sydney, December 2017
"Our driver was great and looked after us so much it was like having a parent to look after us. Everything was great and we were very glad to have had breakfast included too. To narrow down our top 3 favourites; well we absolutely loved the Spice Garden, Ella Rock and Horton Plains, (we got to pat a deer it was beautiful)Oh and our first two accommodation places we had upgrades! The most beautiful rooms!! Thanks again for all the organising and chopping and changing. We will recommend Getaboutasia Much appreciated." — Mrs Fiddler and Mr Bade, Melbourne , October 2017

His friendliness and advice/recommendations was welcomed as was his punctuality and cleanliness of his vehicle. Many thanks for organising this trip." — Mick and Ross, Warrandyte, April 2017
"We felt that Sri Lanka was a great destination and a suitable destination of all types of people, although very hot and humid in coastal areas in April. We enjoyed it all, and the final days in Colombo were good as Ramada Hotel was very well located, and a special treat as New Year celebrations going on." — Mr and Mrs Clark, Bribie Island, April 2017
"Our trip was a success and we were very happy with our car and driver Manoje. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.

"Trip was fantastic! Everything went really well and our itinerary was perfect. We were met at the airport by our driver, Sunil Sanarakkody who was a terrific guide; couldn't have asked for a better one. I'm glad we added Yala and Mirissa, both were well worthwhile! Both safari parks were different and we saw many different animals and birdlife in both. Thank you for putting this all together for us, absolutely fabulous! " — Lisa and Des, Adelaide, December 2016
