Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Colombo.
On arrival you’re met by your private chauffeur-guide and transferred down to the south coast to Galle. Once here, you have time to settle into your hotel and enjoy some time at leisure depending on your flight time. If you have some time today, we would recommend taking a gentle stroll around the local area as Galle is an excellent city to explore on foot.
Today undertake a private city tour of Galle with your chauffeur guide. Galle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to a beautiful Dutch fort, with quaint streets and pretty walkways. The fort area is the largest remaining fortress of its kind in Asia.
Today is free for you to independently explore Galle and the surrounding areas. If you would be interested to explore Galle by bicycle, there are many different routes for you to explore. Have a chat with your specialist who would be more than happy to advise you.
This morning drive back along the coast with your chauffeur guide to the sleepy town of Bentota and the beautiful crescent shaped beaches. If you wish to stop along the way, your chauffeur guide will be more than happy to do so. In the afternoon your chauffeur-guide can take you to the lovely Brief Garden which is just outside of Bentota. Previously the home of the landscape architect Bevis Bawa, the gardens make for an interesting afternoon excursion.
Enjoy a day at leisure today in Bentota. We would recommend going to visit a nearby turtle hatchery where a local project is helping to release baby turtles back into the ocean.
Day at your own leisure. Bentota has some of the best beaches in this region of Sri Lanka, so this is a great chance to sit back and relax in the tropical sunshine.
Your final day of leisure today. You may wish to pick up some last minute souvenirs from the small town, or enjoy another peaceful day listening to the waves.
Today you’re met by your chauffeur-guide and transferred to the airport. The drive time does vary depending on traffic, however your chauffeur-guide will make sure you arrive at the airport in plenty of time for your onwards flight. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
