Hi I’m heading to Sri Lanka for 10-12 days and am torn between going solo or joining a tour (Exodus or similar). Tour seems easy and will be with others for company. However, it includes a few things I rather not waste time doing and misses a few things I do want to do.
Is hiring a driver easy/safe? Do I pay their accomodation as may be too expensive? How do I organise activities like hikes/safaris/tea plantation or do they help? Is walking around towns safe if not in a group? Any advice appreciated!
