Your Sri Lanka Holiday with Wendy Wu Tours

Sri Lanka has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites, in such a small area, than anywhere else on earth and over 2,000 years of culture can be discovered at the ancient sites where legendary temples boast beautiful details. But Sri Lanka is not just renowned for its ancient history; it is also home to miles and miles of beautiful beaches, and tea estates in the central hill ranges.

Your Wendy Wu Tours experience begins before you travel and we are there every step of the way until you return home. Our customers are our priority, and we will do all we can to ensure your holiday is one to remember.

This Travel Guide provides you with practical advice and cultural information to help you prepare for your holiday. We are aware that this can seem like a lot of reading material, but we ask that you take some time to familiarise yourself with this information prior to departure and refer to the contents within throughout your travels.

The tour dossier and final itinerary provides a straightforward description of the physical activities involved in each day’s sightseeing. If there are any particular challenges, from the length of time spent on your feet, the duration of drives and flights, to the standard of remote accommodation for our more adventurous tours; they will be explained there.

Have a positive attitude

Almost everything will be different from what you may be used to. We have found that our passengers who embark on their journey with a sense of humour and adventure and who accept that things do not always go to plan, are those who find their experience most rewarding. 

Travelling to a new destination requires patience with crowds and potential delays. Post pandemic, the world is slowly but surely opening back up and as part of this transition, you may find hotel and restaurant service slower than usual, and difficulty conversing in English.

We urge our customers to embrace the new ‘normal’ and keep in mind all the rewards, as well as challenges, of travelling in a country with a history and culture, so unlike our own. We ask you to recognise it will be busier than expected but to embrace the crowds and enjoy what will be a wonderful experience.

More about your holiday

Although Sri Lanka is developing quickly, please note that health and safety standards overseas can differ greatly from those we enjoy at home, often of a lower standard. However, all of our suppliers meet local and national safety standards as a minimum.

At Wendy Wu Tours we are continually working with our suppliers to maintain and improve safety standards by seeking good practice in health and safety and we will do our best to ensure that your holiday is safe and trouble free. Part of  the enjoyment of travelling abroad is experiencing a different way of life and culture, but it may also mean experiencing different safety and hygiene standards than those we are used to at home. We want you to have an enjoyable holiday so we ask that you take extra care, use your common sense as well as refer to notices and follow the advice from your National Escort/Local Guides.

Our tours are operated at a comfortable, moderate or active pace and this is shown on the tour page in our brochure, on our website, and in the tour dossier. For more information on the more active aspects of our tours, please refer to your tour dossier.

Our National Escort/Local Guides always endeavour to provide the highest level of service and assistance, but they cannot be expected to cater for passengers who are not fit enough to complete the itinerary.
