What to expect

The last capital of a pre-colonial Sri Lankan kingdom is a must-see. Not only is Kandy home to the magnificent Temple of the Tooth Relic, but it's also a city of tree-lined streets crammed with hawkers, tuk-tuks, and vintage buses. It's almost non-stop action on this private tour: you'll also visit botanical gardens, a spice garden, and a tea plantation.

Join a guided tour of Kandy, which includes a visit to the Tooth Relic Temple – a UNESCO World Heritage Site that's home to a relic of Buddha's tooth – and the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya, which feature more than 4,000 species of plants. To make the day extra special, you'll be offered a traditional lunch.

As you make your way through the central highlands, you'll stop at a fragrant spice garden in Mawanella and at a tea plantation and factory – for a proper cuppa of Ceylon tea – in Giragama. The undulating hills covered with rows of tea plants, one of the most emblematic images of Sri Lanka, are a sight you'll never forget.
