Welcome to Sri Lanka Dream Tour
SLTD is one of the best and most experienced small-scale tour companies in Sri Lanka. We offer the best price and the best services. We provide a unique, unforgettable travel experience that reflects the traveler’s true desires and interests and perform this service with professionalism, creativity, and knowledge. We want our clients to experience the real Sri Lanka rather than just see it.

During this 10-day tour, we will cover most of the tourist attractions at the following destinations: Sigiriya, Dambulla, Matale, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Yalla, Mirissa, Galle, Hikaduwa, and Colmbo. Guests will be provided with high-quality, air-conditioned, and comfortable vehicles, as well as a tourist chauffeur to assist with the tour and free internet access throughout the journey.

Day 1
Upon arrival at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, a tourist chauffeur from Sri Lanka Dream Tour will meet and welcome you. After that, he will welcome you into a luxurious private vehicle that will be with you throughout your holiday in Sri Lanka. Your first destination on this Sri Lanka itinerary for 10 days will be Sigiriya, which is about a 4-hour drive from the airport, and you can enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to relax. (Overnight accommodation location: Sigiriya)

Day 2
After breakfast, depart for the Lions Rock in Sigiriya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site adorning a palace on its peak. A must-see for anyone traveling to Sri Lanka. Afterwards, you can either return to the hotel and relax in the afternoon or head out on a safari at Minneriya National Park. After a long day, you will have a chance to experience a Sri Lankan Aurweda spa treatment of your choice. (Overnight accommodation location: Sigiriya)

Day 3
If you’re feeling energetic and have a thirst for adventure, the Hiriwaduna Trek can be organized. This trek allows you to understand village life as well as experience a bullock cart ride and even a catamaran boat ride. After that, proceed to Kandy while visiting the Rock Cave Temple in Dambulla and the Spice Garden in Matale en route. Later in the evening, witness a Kandian Cultural Dance performance. (Overnight accommodation location: Kandy)

Day 4
In the morning, spend the day touring Kandy City, including a visit to the Temple of the Tooth Relic. From there, proceed to Nuwara Eliya. En route, visit Waterfalls and learn about how the world-famous Ceylon tea is made at a tea factory and plantation site. (Overnight accommodation location: Nuwara Eliya)

Day 5
Early morning excursion to Horton Plains National Park. Visit Baker’s Falls and check out the infamous World’s End. In the afternoon, take a tour of the colonial town of Nuwara Eliya.

(Overnight accommodation location: Nuwara Eliya)

Day 6
After breakfast, proceed to Nanu Oya Train Station to conduct a train journey to Ella. This is considered to be one of the most beautiful train trips in the world.

Enjoy the breath taking views in and around the hotel. (Overnight accommodation location: Ella)

Day 8
Grab a cool drink and simply get lost in the tranquil sound of the waves kissing the golden shores, or enjoy a beautiful sunset as the waves wash over your feet. Spend the entire day relaxing at the beach. (Overnight accommodation location: Unawatuna or Hikkaduwa)

Day 9
Early mornings offer the opportunity to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure: whale watching at Mirissa Coast! Set off on a boat to see the magnificent creatures up close and personal.
