India and Sri Lanka best exotic small group tour

Our last Indian suggestion was a decadent small group rail tour and this gem lets you stray off the tracks and really get up close and personal with the glorious sights, sounds and flavours of not only India but also it’s Southern neighbour, Sri Lanka.

From Tripadeal, this two for one tour invites you to ignite your spirit of discovery as you embark on this life-changing 15-day small group tour. This remarkable itinerary takes you and a friend to iconic UNESCO-listed wonders, presents centuries’ old traditions, mouthwatering cuisine, captivating wildlife and more.

Start with a journey through Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, India’s Golden Triangle of history, colour and culture. The buzzing capital of Delhi is first with a city tour that includes the Red Fort, India Gate, Raj Ghat memorial to Mahatma Ghandi and more before a ride through Chandni Chowk bazaar by rickshaw. Sounds a bit like the days of the Raj but pith helmet NOT preferred.

After breakfast, travel to royal Jaipur’s unique pink-washed city to explore the imposing UNESCO-listed white-marbled Amber Fort and the intricately ornate designs displayed by the Hawa Mahal’s ‘Palace of Winds’ and more. Visit the enigmatic Chand Baori Stepwell on your way to marvel at the UNESCO-listed Agra Fort and Agra’s most beautiful testament to love, the Taj Mahal. Fans of The Crown and the real Princess Di can try recreating THAT photograph.

Return to Delhi for your flight to Negombo and the lush landscapes of Sri Lanka. Journey deep into tropical rainforests to discover the 5th-century UNESCO-listed Lion’s Rock Fortress of Sigiriya. Step through the colossal ‘Lion Paws’ into a world of imposing ramparts, meticulously designed royal gardens and ancient artworks adorning the sheer rock surface. In your free time, you can choose an optional jeep safari to spot wildlife in Minneriya National Park before visiting the Dambulla Rock Cave Temple, which flanks an exquisite golden temple and gigantic golden Buddha statue. 

Enjoy a city tour of historic royal Kandy, then experience the beat of traditional Sri Lankan music and a captivating cultural evening of dance and colour. Depart for Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka’s highest town, set among the lush heart of breathtaking tea plantations. Gain an insight into the creation of the perfect cup of Ceylon Tea before a heartwarming experience with wild baby elephants at Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home, dedicated to the rehabilitation and care of these orphaned animals. 

In your final days of this unforgettable adventure, discover the famous 17th-century Galle Fort and the pretty coastal town of Koggala to unwind and rejuvenate in style on Sri Lanka’s tropical beaches. 

Don’t miss this unique 2 for 1 small group discovery of India & Sri Lanka promises a dynamic fusion of colourful adventure and includes return international full-service flights & 1 internal flight, 13 nights of 3-4 star accommodation, 14 meals, with daily breakfast and return airport transfers with meet & greet included.
