WHY BOOK WITH US

We are truly Sri Lankan with no third parties involved in your booking process. We promote Responsible Tourism that seek to create better places for people to live in, and better places for people to visit. We will handle all your tour requirements with a personal touch. Our focus is in in fostering Sustainable Tourism in Sri Lanka, we welcome families, couples, individuals and small groups.

In this website we have featured a collection of Standard Tours, which would be more useful as guidelines to plan you own tour. We are flexible in matching your requirements to these standard suggested tours. Furthermore, we have also featured some “off the beaten track” tours, which range from adventure, special interest to wildlife.

From these guidelines you are at liberty to inform your preferred requirements and we will see how fitting it is to match these requirements to the featured tours. These alterations could be in the route, the destinations, the hotels or the suggested activities.

If you are booking your holiday via other means but still require the services of transport providers, we will be happy to assist you in your quest to find a decent and comfortable vehicle to travel about with the able assistance of an English speaking or foreign language speaking chauffeur guide at your disposal.

We do not recommend that you find a vehicle for hire on a self-drive basis. For one thing the roads and the traffic would not be the same as the ones you know back at home, providing many hazards along the way. Furthermore, the best way to get around in Sri lanka is with help in directions and a ready chauffeur guide could provide you the assistance all the way.

Reserving your accommodation would be the most vital element of your holiday. Sometimes, (or most of the times) booking your hotels online would give the impression that it is quick, cost-effective and accurate. On the other hand a locally based travel agent would handle your hotel reservations “manually”, ensuring that the process is taking into consideration the best interest of the guest.

When we do your hotel bookings, we take each step seriously, from inquiry through sending our reservation vouchers to the hotels and obtaining confirmations from the hotels (manually) and informing the guests the correct booking, payment and cancellation policies that the different hotels have contracted with us (Sylvan Tours). We give the customer (guest) the benefits that the hotels correctly offer us through goodwill and long-term relationships. We also share with our guests the various discounts and promotional offers that various hotels periodically offer.

Your event could be a conference and incentive package or a exotic dream wedding.

Planning, organizing and implementing these events are very cumbersome and local expertise is very much needed to ensure that everything runs smoothly. For this purpose, we work with a range of intermediaries who are professionals in these respective fields ranging from conference organizers, wedding planners to music deejays.

Responsible Tourism Initiaves

Responsible travelers want experiences rather than packages, authenticity rather than superficial exoticism and vacations that put a little bit back into local communities and conservation. This is the future of tourism.’
– Dame Anita Roddick, co-founder of The Body Shop

Responsible Tourism is tourism which:

  • Minimises negative economic, environmental and social impacts
  • Generates greater economic benefits for local people and enhances the well being of host communities
  • Improves working conditions and access to the industry
  • Involves local people in decisions that affect their lives and life chances
  • Makes positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage embracing diversity
  • Provides more enjoyable experiences for tourists through more meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues
  • Provides access for physically challenged people
  • Is culturally sensitive, encourages respect between tourists and hosts, and builds local and confidence

HEALTHY CHILD FUND

I want to walk into a room, be it a hospital for the dying or a hospital for the sick children, and feel that I am needed. I want to do, not just to be

~Princess Diana

The idea to establish a Healthy Child Fund stems from a personal experience of a child and a family close to our hearts. This child was diagnosed with a rare and complex medical condition which required a medical treatment to be done in neighbouring India. Thanks to the support of all those who rallied around, this procedure was carried out successfully and a healthy, curious and engaging child full of life and laughter is now with us.

 

If you scan the National Newspapers in Sri Lanka chances are that you will come across at least one story a week of a child suffering from serious illness, requiring complex and expensive medical treatments. Most often, these procedures can only be done abroad, and almost always, parents find it difficult to raise the finances needed for these treatments, and for the medication and after care that is necessary.

The Healthy Child Fund seeks to channel parts of the profits of Touringsrilanka.com to assist families in providing the best possible chances for the survival and well being of these children. We also invite other interested individuals to contribute to this venture.

 

These families and children will be selected through recommendations given by Doctors who are treating them. Watch this space also for reports of assistance given, and follow ups of each case.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little – do what you can.

~Sydney Smith

Providing Volunteer Opportunities to visitors is one way in which we seek to promote Responsible, Community Based Tourism in Sri Lanka. Visitors can spend their entire stay, a few days or even a few hours of their holiday contributing to a cause close to their heart.

 

Once you express an interest in volunteering, one of our expert consultants well experienced in facilitating similar ventures will get in touch with you. Depending on your area of interest, and the services you are willing to offer, we will help you get in touch with local organizations and institutions all over Sri Lanka that are working with children; the environment; the disabled, elderly and sick; communities in need, or any other group you want to engage with. You will be given the opportunity to get further details about these organizations, their projects and their beneficiaries to let you identify this as a worthy activity that can benefit through your contribution.

 

Once agreed on, this activity will then be woven into your tour itinerary, or we will customize an entire tour for you based on volunteering activities. All accommodation and transport will be arranged by us, and a local representative will be at hand to guide you through your volunteering process.

 

It is our goal to make your experience touring Sri Lanka more meaningful for you and for the needy communities in this country. We feel truly blessed to help you help others in need!
