Family Tour in Sri Lanka

“Although Sri Lanka is quite remote, it’s perfectly possible to explore it as a family. However we suggest you choose your accommodation carefully and adapt the tour’s pace and difficulty level, so that your holiday can be a highly enjoyable experience for everyone. As an example, it’s hard to imagine children eagerly climbing Lion Rock in Sigiriya straight after another visit! This is why our local agency put together this tour, in which each day and each accommodation have been thought out to suit parents and children alike. You can rest easy and come back with gorgeous memories.”   Dilhani
