Tailored Family Holidays to Sri Lanka 

As a family holiday destination, Sri Lanka has everything. The history of ancient temples and crumbling cities, the rich culture, world class beaches, and more elephants than you can shake a stick at. 
 
Tailored Journeys are Sri Lanka experts, with our founder having grown up and lived in Sri Lanka for 30 years. We've handpicked the best family resorts and the best children-orientated hotels, and combined them with a range of private tour options to give you both freedom, flexibility, safety and the little ones a sense of adventure. 
 
There’s plenty of activities in Sri Lanka for families to enjoy, too. Climb Lions Rock in Sigiriya for incredible views of the surrounding countryside, or why not jump on a bike and cycle through vast rice fields, quaint villages and ancient temples. 
 
A family holiday in Sri Lanka wouldn't be complete without taking one of the most iconic train journeys in the world, between Kandy and Ella. Sit on the steps of the train and let the warm air brush your face as you take in the incredible scenery of our vast tea plantations. 
 
Your family holiday to-do list in Sri Lanka can go on forever, because there are so many amazing things to do, and so many amazing places to see. Get in touch, tell us what kind of holiday or tour you are looking for with your children, and let us come up with an itinerary for the trip of a lifetime.

Manoj 
Our Sri Lanka 
Specialist 
(0)1442 617 777 
Born and raised in Sri Lanka, it was only right for us to let Manoj look after all our bookings to this magical island nation. Back in his native Sri Lanka, working for one of the country’s biggest tour companies Walkers, he forged some very strong ties with some of the best hotels on the island. There is not much he doesn’t know about this island and his frequent visits to see his mother in Mount Lavinia and his life-long boarding school mates from Kandy, certainly help him stay on top of all things Sri Lanka.  
Use his unrivalled knowledge of the island and his expertise to tailor make that once in a lifetime holiday to Sri Lanka.
