Small group tours give a unique blend of independent travel with the opportunity to bond with fellow travelers. Free travelers have the challenge of adapting to a new environment while a large coach tour ties you to the shackles of a schedule. Small group tours offer the best of both worlds. Travelers can interact with each other, grow a personal connection, and share common interests. Moreover, the pace of the tour can be medium without rushing from one attraction to another. Another advantage is the interaction with locals. Small group tours have the benefit of immersing in the culture of Sri Lanka, take different activity classes and connect with the souls of the country.
Sri Lanka is still a developing country; the cities are well-maintained but traveling in the countryside can be a hurdle. Having a small group enhances the safety and makes the travel easier. Most tourists prefer to rent a vehicle to cover the different attractions of the country. For free travelers, the cost for commute can be on the higher side. But group tourists share the entire budget of car or minivan rentals and thereby, reduce the overall budget for travel.
The country is endowed with numerous natural and historical attractions. Group tourists can indulge themselves in an array of outdoor and indoor activities.
The benefits of a group tour coupled with the variety of exploring options make Sri Lanka an ideal gateway for small group travelers.
