    The island of Sri Lanka lies off the south-east tip of India and is surrounded by classic Indian Ocean beaches of long stretches of sand, lapped by blue ocean and fringed by coconut palms. Inland the countryside offers verdant tea-clad hills, streams and waterfalls as well as highland areas of rhododendron, tropical rain forest of teak and ebony, and national parks which are home to abundant wildlife.
    Sri Lanka also has some outstanding Buddhist cultural and archaeological sites, as well as architecture which has been influenced by Portuguese, Dutch and British colonists. Sri Lanka is really a land waiting to be discovered by people who will appreciate not only the variety; the scenery, the wildlife, the culture and the history but also the inherent quality of this country and its people.

    Expressions Holidays organises tailor-made luxury tours of Sri Lanka for individuals. We have put together a selection of suggested itineraries which can be used as they are, or modified according to your preferences and budget. 
    A classic 6 night tour visiting the Highlights of Sri Lanka costs from £1950 per person including scheduled flights, all transport, bed and breakfast accommodation and entrance to some monuments. 
    Meanwhile the 13 night Best of Sri Lanka tour allows visitors to spend more time exploring the country, costing from £3150 per person including scheduled flights, all transport, bed and breakfast accommodation and entrance to some monuments.

    A luxury touring holiday in Sri Lanka is at the heart of what many of our clients want to experience from this fascinating country and it is where we excel at using our personal knowledge and experience to tailor a holiday that is a perfect match for you. Stay in several different locations around Sri Lanka, allowing time to explore and relax in each. Combine a few nights on the beach with stays in the Kandy Hills, in the Cultural Triangle, Galle, Negombo or Colombo. It makes sense to factor in a night or two in Colombo, Negombo, Wadduwa or near the airport at the beginning and/or end of your holiday to coincide with flight times.

    Travel arrangements
    Sri Lankan Airways operates daily flights to Colombo from London Heathrow. Most flights leave London in the afternoon or evening. Flight time is about 11 hours. There is economy and a business class cabin. In the course of 2012 the business class cabins are being upgraded to fully reclining flat-beds. From Colombo you can also take the Sri Lankan air taxi to regional centres throughout the country. Sri Lankan Airways also operates flights to the Maldives via Colombo, making Sri Lanka and the Maldives a perfect two-centre combination.
    We include an English-speaking chauffeur guide with all our Sri Lankan touring holidays, who will meet you on arrival at Colombo airport then accompany you on your journey around the island. All our holidays are for individuals, so you travel as your own party and do not join a group. 

    Expressions Holidays is an independent specialist tour operator which was established in 1989 and offers tailor-made holidays to Sri Lanka, providing personal service with a professional approach. We pride ourselves on interpreting your demands and requirements to provide you with the holiday that you want, ensuring a successful match between client and holiday.. Not only are your holidays tailor-made to your individual requirements, but you also have the chance to deal with one person from beginning to end, offering you confidence and security and the best possible prices.

    Personal and professional service
    We personally know the majority of the hotels that we feature, and we put together our holidays with our clients in mind. Contact with Expressions Holidays means contact with the people who know the holidays, who will share their knowledge and experience with you – our team of travel consultants know the country and culture very well, and operate a concierge service that helps you to explore every aspect of special interest or activity that fits with your holiday.
    All aspects of your holiday are personalised, from the itinerary to your holiday confirmation and documentation which provides you with information that is relevant to you. From the point of initial contact with us, you will deal with the same sales consultant, who will handle all aspects of your booking and ticketing.
    We approach your holiday in a way that offers you the arrangements you want, not to slot you in to pre-existing arrangements. This might mean juggling dates, securing the last available room at a hotel or tailoring a complex itinerary involving numerous components. Your holiday is as individually fashioned and tailor-made as you want it to be.
