This is a tour designed to have a week of touring and adventure in around the cultural sites of Sri Lanka and then a week of relaxation in the Maldives. This itinerary can be tailored to suit you better and maybe have a week relaxing at each destination rather than drive around to discover more of what Sri Lanka has to offer.

An excellent schedule for honeymooners or for anyone wanting just a taste of Sri Lanka but don’t want to do the usual long drives around the Island.
