    Priya was our guide and had great knowledge about his home country. Priya was flexible and was able to add a few extra activities in without fuss. India and Arneil were fantastic as our driver and Priya assistant. Great trip with a great range of sightseeing.

    Fantastic tour and guide(Amara). Our guide took extra time to point out dozens of birds for us. The participants on the tour made the the trip special they came from many countries. This is a comprehensive tour which makes it worth the long flights.

    This busy tour covers a broad area of the country, with ancient kingdoms and archaeology, religion, general culture, great hikes, opportunities to see wildlife, tea plantation, train ride and the beach. Our group was 15 people which is workable and our tour leader Amara was always patient, kind and knowledgeable. He was approachable and accommodated requests. The driver and assistant were very professional too. I appreciated our stops at the grocery store. Everything ran smoothly. It is a safe country and most of the accommodations were great. A few were not the ones listed/substitutes for some reason. Some were nicer than others. We had a few bumps (unable to climb Adam's Peak due to volume, and no whales sighted for excursion) but these were flukes. Caves amazing. Sigiriya was incredible. World's End and Mini Adam's peak were spectacular. We enjoyed a cooking class too. A big highlight was seeing a leopard! I wish we had more time at the end; the last day is too rushed with too many activities. I have traveled to 60 countries and this tour is a great value for the money. I would highly recommend it to gain insight to the depth of this beautiful country and enjoy a variety of experiences.

    A really great opportunity to get a real flavour of this beautiful country. It really had a bit of everything- from temples, hill climbs, safaris and a train journey. We could also not have asked for a better tour team - The team of Amara, Indika (the assistant) and driver took great care of us, whilst Amara was the perfect, patient tour guide, sharing his vast knowledge of Sri Lankan history and culture, answering all of our questions as thoroughly as possible. They even organised a celebrations for one of the groups birthday, which was on the last day of the tour, and a memorable conclusion to our trip. The additional excursions were also fantastic, particular highlights being the climb up Adam's Peak and the extra elephant safari. The accommodation was on the whole of a very high standard.

    Did this tour in December over the Christmas period. We had a great group of 7 participants and were very well looked after by Amara who went out of his way with the driver and assistant to ensure that we gained an in depth understanding of Sri Lanka. We now have a better understanding of the culture, food and geography of Sri Lanka through the eyes of a locals who are passionate about sharing their love of Sri Lanka with visitors who are lucky enough to visit on a Tucan trip.

    What an amazing few weeks! Priya really is the most incredible tour guide - he made Sri Lanka come alive and his passion for the country was utterly contagious - he's a gem and tucan are very lucky to have him. This is an intense tour that packs a huge amount in - not right for people who want to laze by the pool but if you want to get the real essence of Sri Lanka, i would highly recommend it - we saw so many elephants, and even a leopard in the wild. Total highlight was that incredible train ride to Ella. Amazing memories made - if you go on this tour (and you should) make sure you get priya to take you to the 'dodgy bars'. Huge thank you to him, mr fernando and indika for the trip of a lifetime! X

    I would definitely recommend this tour to others - the jewels of Sri Lanka tour fab! Culture, history, safari, beach, trekking all rolled into a 2 week trip. The tour guide Priya shared so much knowledge about the country and looked after our every need, I felt very safe and relaxed that everything was taken care of. The private bus made a huge difference and our driver kept us safe on every journey :)

    Recently returned from Jewels of Sri Lanka tour. In spite of the unprecedented storms we experienced at the end of our holiday, our tour guide, Priya did everything to make our tour enjoyable. A good mix of culture, scenery and animals. Most hotels were of a higher standard than we expected. Comfortable touring coach and excellent safe driver. Thank you Toucan

We were fortunate to have an awesome Tour Leader (Amara) who went out of his way to make it a fun journey. He was at all times very professional - especially when dealing with an urgent medical situation and ongoing difficult passengers. His local knowledge on all manner of subjects and passion about his own country was extraordinary. Amara is deserving of the highest commendation.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • December 1, 2016

    What is max group size?

    This tour has a maximum of 16 travellers with an average group size of 8-12.

  • November 26, 2015

    Can you provide an accommodation list as an option for hotels - and I need a private room - hotel, guest house, and there is 1 night camping. Can you find out more specifics with regards to their arrangements?

    For this tour there isn't a definitive list since hotels can change according to availability. Hotels will be a 3 star standard, small hotels, family owned and run rather than big chain hotel. They are clean and comfortable though.
    The same for the camping, it is clean and organised, 3 star standard.

    The brochure price is based on a twin share occupancy, in case you wish not to share a room there is the option to request the single supplement for an additional on top of the brochure price. You will then have your own room.
