Meet your guide at your centrally located hotel for early morning departure. Dress for the day in clothing that covers your knees and shoulders, as you otherwise may not be able to enter some of the sites on this tour. Board a comfortable private vehicle with your chauffeur-guide and your group and begin your tour to the UNESCO-listed site at Polonnaruwa.
Tour the ancient temples, gardens, and statues at Polonnaruwa to learn about the history of this old capital city, which came to power in the 11th century. The site is widely considered one of the best preserved archeological sites in Sri Lanka, and you may recognize some of the ruins from their appearance in pop culture.
This tour also includes visits to the Aluvihara Monastery, the Matale Hindu Temple, and a spice and herb garden.
Return to your hotel at the end of the trip.
