What you should know

Value-for-money packages are available in Sri Lanka and overseas. These include India, Thailand (Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket), Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, UK, Continental Europe and Australia. We facilitate tours on Cosmos and Globus buses, Princess Cruises and Star Cruises. You should book these well in advance, and the dates of departure are fixed.


We do not organise company-accompanied tours at the moment, but recommend GIT and FIT travel.


The pros of accompanied travel are that: you have a guide who speaks the local language, you get the advantage of group airfares and hotel group discounts, and much of the unknown risk factor and possible scamsters is removed. Some meals are included.


The cons of accompanied travel are that: you are restricted to the sights included on the tour, you are restricted to operator-selected airlines and fixed dates of departure from restricted starting points, you have to keep up with your group or stay back if someone in your group goes missing at stops, and time to fully appreciate your destination, including its culture and its people is restricted. You are at the mercy of traffic when travelling on Seat-In-Coach basis, your meal choices are also restricted if they are included in the package, and it may not be the cuisine of the area, but could be British pub food or even be from a fast food chain.


There are many who prefer package tours. In fact, it can prove to be quite tiring, and not quite satisfying, compared to the alternative.
