Enhance Your Journey

Elevate your experience with a host of options available for an additional cost.

ROYAL BOTANICAL GARDENS

Join a local university botany professor for a private tour of the Royal Botanical Gardens just west of Kandy. Dating back to the 14th century, the meticulously manicured grounds transport you to a bygone era.

LUNUGANGA ESTATE

Enjoy a privately guided tour of Lunuganga Estate, the country home of renowned Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa. The estate’s garden once served as a laboratory for Bawa’s creative experiments. Today it survives as a beautiful monument to his artistic legacy.

AN EVENING IN COLOMBO

Hop from one local hangout to another, capturing an authentic glimpse of Colombo as the heat of the day fades and the nightlife warms up. Your guide reveals the city’s colonial architecture, pausing for authentic food and drink in local bars and restaurants along the way.

NEGOMBO FISH MARKET

Take in the spectacle of Colombo’s Negombo Fish Market at dawn, watching as hundreds of fishermen disembark from vessels large and small to haul in their catches for processing and sale. Marvel at the sheer magnitude of the operation as the morning’s catch makes its way to local peddlers and international wholesalers alike.
