Explore the Tear Drop Isle with our range of escorted group tours, private journeys and bespoke tailor-made holidays to Sri Lanka.
The Tear Drop Isle can feel reassuringly familiar to British travellers with Sri Lanka's penchant for tea and fierce passion for cricket a legacy of British rule, but from the palm-fringed beaches to the rainforested peaks, there's plenty of contrast here to intrigue and enchant. For a relatively small country, Sri Lanka packs an archaeological punch with eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites and over 2,000 years of culture with the achievements of the great Sinhalese civilisation apparent in the impressive caves temples of Dambulla and ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya.Read More
Home to the highest density of elephants in Asia, as well as the native Sri Lankan leopard, Sri Lanka is a real treat for nature lovers too with Yala National Park a firm favourite amongst visitors. With 1,340 km of coastline, there's no shortage of beaches to choose from, ranging from popular and well-developed resorts to quieter fishing villages.
Voyage to Sri Lanka with On the Go for an escorted group tour or enjoy private services on one of our exclusive journeys that cover the best of what this stunning island has to offer.

Monroe was a fantastic guide, giving us plenty of options and information about the history of places. The hotels were all of a higher quality than I expected, which was superb.
I would definitely consider On The Go for future tours.”
Akthar was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. He considered each guests requests and preferences personally and catered to them with no fuss. We found Akthar extremely polite, knowledgeable, interesting and also had our best interests at heart. We felt that we travelled as first class guests from start to finish. Akhtar kept us all amused during the coach journeys with his humour, knowledge of local people and surroundings. When we were in Akhtar's company we knew we didn't have a worry in the world. He went the extra mile every day from dawn to dust and was always around late into the evening just in case we needed anything but was never intrusive. We believe Akhtar made our trip extra special. Thank you 'On The Go Tours' and the biggest and most sincere thank you to Akhtar. ”
I cant say enough about this tour! travelled with a great bunch of travellers from Australia, South Africa and England.
Akhtar was an amazing guide he had a wealth of knowledge and a love for his country. Even though I was only in Sri Lanka for a week I feel like I have a wealth of knowledge now! I enjoyed the local stop at the mark on the first day. The hotels we stayed in were fantastic and having the varying styles from traditional to modern and the eco lodge. I cant wait to travel with On The Go Tours again! ”
