The trip starts near Dambulla, where you'll see the Dambulla Cave Temple and Sigiriya (also known as the Lion Rock), a 200-metre-high column of rock topped by a ruined citadel. You'll also go on a jeep safari in Minneriya National Park.
Next, you will stop at the Golden Temple of Dambulla and the Matale spice gardens, where you will sample homeopathic remedies, have lunch, get a head-and-shoulder massage, see a cooking demonstration and learn how spices are cultivated. Once in Kandy -- the "undisputed cultural capital of the island" (Rough Guides) -- you will get a guided tour of the city, visiting Sri Lanka's most important Buddhist shrine, the Temple of the Tooth.
The following day, you'll take a heritage train to Nuwara Eliya, nicknamed "Little England" for its toy-town feel, red postboxes and rose gardens, en route to a tea plantation for a tasting session.
You'll spend the final three nights relaxing by the beach in Beruwala, and visiting a nearby turtle conservation project.
Add a 6-night tour of India's Golden Triangle*** -- Agra, Delhi and Jaipur -- with flights, for an extra £499 per person.
