Hello, really thanks for your interest in Sweet Home’s tours.
“We make your journey memorable”
With this concept, we have decided to do tours beyond tradition. It means we have added uncommon and hidden places for some of our tours. Sweet Home’s Hidden Beauty tour is one of them. The majority of people usually cover the central, East-West & the south part of this magnificent country, but tours to the north part are unspecific among foreigners. As sweet home tours, we recommend you to visit Jaffna for several facts. We will explain everything through our itineraries. Please do not hesitate to write us about your plan. We can customize these tours according to your aspects.
