  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Colombo.

  • On arrival you're met by your private chauffeur-guide and transferred down to the south coast to Galle. Once here, you have time to settle into your hotel and enjoy some time at leisure depending on your flight time. If you have some time today, we would recommend taking a gentle stroll around the local area as Galle is an excellent city to explore on foot.

  • This morning drive back along the coast with your chauffeur guide to the sleepy town of Bentota and the beautiful crescent shaped beaches. If you wish to stop along the way, your chauffeur guide will be more than happy to do so. In the afternoon your chauffeur-guide can take you to the lovely Brief Garden which is just outside of Bentota. Previously the home of the landscape architect Bevis Bawa, the gardens make for an interesting afternoon excursion.
