Pricing Guidelines for a Tailor-made Holiday in Sri Lanka


Prices can vary considerably for tailor-made travel as the quality of hotels, places visited and time of travel is entirely up to you. In addition, you may choose to have a private guide to escort your right through your holiday in Sri Lanka, or simply have the services of local guides at each port of call.


Prices also vary dependent upon the number of people in your travelling party, as fixed costs like transportation and guiding are shared across each group.


For an indication of the sorts of prices to expect for a private holiday in Sri Lanka please have a look at some of the Private Journeys featured on our website. These are based on two people travelling, sharing a twin/double room.


Our group tours can be done on a private basis too, and this option will typically be less expensive than a 100% tailor-made holiday. So depending on your budget, a private group tour or one of our featured private itineraries might be worth consideration.
