Nice Holiday with Excellent Service !!

We get recommended by friends of us to use the service of PL Tours and Travels.
From the first email till the drop off at the Airport it was a hassle free holiday.

Everything was arranged and we did not to pay for entrance fees the wild life safari and the rent of a Jeep. I must say it keeps a lot of work from our hands

Our driver / guide Rohan did a great job. If you want to take a stop for a picture or a coconut drink it was no problem. He stop where we want.
He is a knowledgeable driver and guide.

PL Tours arrange in Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnaruwa a local guide who knew everything about the history of the Ancient cities.

We visit the Horton Plains and Worlds End, beautiful nature and waterfalls. Be sure you start in the early morning. (the clouds coming in later on the day and you cant enjoy the view at Worlds end)

If you looking for a hassle free journey in Sri Lanka we recommend to choose PL Tours.
