Customised holidays for curious travellers.

LUXURY PRIVATE travel in Sri Lanka TAILOR MADE through local eyes


We have lived in Sri Lanka all our lives and know the soul of our island. On each bespoke private tour, we connect you with Sri Lanka’s most authentic experiences exclusively hosted by fascinating locals, just for you. No two holidays are the same. By day you’ll be inspired by our local connections, beaches, wildlife and cultural treasures. By night you’ll stay in the best boutique hotels, luxury villas, tree house lodges and private glamping sites. We’d love to hear from you and share the very best of our island, famously known as Ceylon. An island with a million things to do.” Get in touch.

Chamintha & Rajindra, Founders & Chief Explorers


Sri Lanka…


I am 103 rivers flowing through beautiful rural villages.

I am the Ceylon Tea mountains.

I am wildlife parks with elephants and leopards.

I am the soft sand on the edge of a blue Indian Ocean.

I am home to blue whales and 33 endemic birds of Sri Lanka.

I am the spices that ignite your senses.

I am the warm-hearted Sri Lankans, inheritors of a heritage thousands of years old.
I am an island, warm all year.

What makes OUR PRIVATE TOURS different?


Bespoke travel

We tailor-make every Sri Lanka trip. No two holidays we design are the same because we're passionate about sharing the side to Sri Lanka which will inspire you. Just you…not someone else.


Transformational travel

Whether you’re dining under the stars at a five-star luxury beach camp, playing cricket with local school kids or cooking up hoppers on a tailor made private holiday, you’ll be transported from the ordinary to the extraordinary by local community-based hosts who have rich stories to share.


Responsible travel

We advocate against elephant back safari rides, innovate to ensure our environmental footprint is light and our community ties stay strong. To a sensitive, bio-diversity hotspot with 21 million people, it matters.
