What you can expect

Sri Lanka is a country where a lot of different cultures coexist in peace. It has a rich multi-ethnic diversity and interesting cultural heritage with very diverse influences. Here Buddhist, Hindus, Christians and Muslims live together in spiritual harmony.

On this private tour you will visit different cultural heritage sites: Great Temples, Kovils (Hindu temple), churches and mosques to understand what makes Sri Lanka such a great place to visit.

I'll share with you insights about how all cultures coexist, with personal stories about how it was to grow up in a multicultural city. I'll show you how to perform a religious ritual at the Gangaramaya Temple and if you wish, we can do it together. I'll also teach you a special breathing exercise at the Lake Temple. Plus helpful information at every site to be respectful towards each specific belief & religion.

But the best part is getting to chat with the locals whom you'll meet on the way. To get to ask questions, to understand their perspectives, that's what makes this tour truly authentic!

A tasty local lunch is included at the end, so we can talk more about your impressions and I will gladly answer any question you might have.

Do you want to see anything in particular? Let me know and I'll create a personalized offer for you!

I AM NOT REALLY AN EVERYDAY TOUR GUIDE, BUT..

I am an enthusiastic traveler and a passionate advertising professional with specialization in BRAND STRATEGY using a bit of my extra disposable energy - Doing something I love - Connecting People with Places!!!

I was always the misfit in school, caught for bunking subjects and playing football or cricket. I have always been an outdoors person and never found my self fitting into the traditional corporate.

Right now I run a National Award Winning Travel Startup & I also conduct some Trainings/Workshops sharing my knowledge on Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Marketing...

I share a bit of my life - My stories and perspectives on many matters - And if you are into Deep conversations, on deep topics, Why Not..."
