Seems to be a very interst8ng tour. We are in Sri Lanka for 1 week in the month of July. Can we book this 4 days tour with you?
Is it safe to travel to Sri Lanka now? We wanted to travel to Sri Lanka for a long time but kept it postponed because of Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 is very much controlled in Sri Lanka we like to travel to Sri Lanka. We are also considering booking a 4-day Sri Lanka trip and combining it with our beach stay.
Thanks for the comment. Tourism is not affected much due to the economic downturn. The government has special arrangements for important industries such as tourism. However, tourist arrival is plummeted by about 50%. My advice is you can go ahead with the plan to travel to Sri Lanka but book it with a tour operator so that this local company takes care of all the necessary arrangement for your trip. These local companies are closely working with the Sri Lanka tourist board and interfere all the time when their customers need support.
Heyа! I just wanted to ask if y᧐u can organize a 4 days trip to us. I feel the 4 days tour you discuss here is interesting and we also like to add little bit more to it to visit sigiriya, if possible. Thank you.
Thanks for the comment. You can customize this Sri Lanka 4 days tour to include Sigiriya. If you can contact this local company they will help you with 4 days tour http://seerendipitytours.com/.
