The Tea Tale of Srilanka
Sri Lanka and tea are inextricably entwined, but exploring the island’s tea plantations is difficult without pre-arranged transport. Swap bartering with cabs for a personal guide and air-conditioned vehicle on this private tour from Kandy, and see and learn more about Sri Lanka’s tea than possible alone in a day. Explore Loolkandura— the island’s first tea plantation—and other estates, visit a tea museum, learn the tea-maker’s art, and more.

Without driving yourself—something not recommended to visitors to Sri Lanka—visiting Dambulla, Sigiriya, and Minneriya National Park in a day from Kandy is impossible. This private tour makes it easy: with a personal driver-guide to explain the sights and scenery, and comfortable private minivan transport. Explore Dambulla’s icon-filled caves, view Sigiriya rocktop ruins, and enjoy a 4x4 safari to see Minneriya’s elephants or a local village tour.

Riverston Nature Lovers Day Tour With Mahaweli
1 review
Take a full day outside Kandy to hike in RIversturn with a guide. Embarking on a full-day hike in unfamiliar territory may be daunting, but traveling with a guide means you'll have someone taking care of the navigation and providing commentary on the area's flora and fauna. From the peak, you'll get photo-worthy views of the terraced rice paddies in the Thelgamuwa Valley and the Knuckles Mountain Range. Take a dip in the refreshing Thelgamuwa Oya and enjoy a picnic lunch and refreshments midday.
