Tours to Sri Lanka


'Thank you, Pieter, for a fantastic experience in Sri Lanka. The combination of a culinary and cultural tour to a terrific destination such as Sri Lanka gave us an insight into a rich culture that we knew very little about. Pieter, you were able to create a fabulous travel experience for us with your Sri Lankan heritage and your expertise as a chef. The expert local knowledge from you and your guides was an integral aspect of the success of the trip. The variety of amazing locations, incredible food, great cooking experiences and superb accommodation has left us with wonderful memories of Sri Lanka. We strongly recommend this tour as an outstanding travel experience.'

We really had no idea what to expect from Sri Lanka, or the tour itself. We were overwhelmed on both counts. Pieter put together a 5-star tour with lots of surprises. Loved the food, and enjoyed the cooking classes. Have recommended the tour to all my friends who have Sri Lanka on their radar.

Pieter’s tour was filled with culture, food, diverse scenery, elephants, cooking, local entertainment, history and did we mention the food? We stayed in some amazing accommodation that more than lived up to our expectations. The crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks Pete for providing us with a comprehensive Sri Lankan experience.

"Our trip was a wonderful balance of culture, food and scenery.  Pieter's tour took us off the beaten track to visit temples, national parks, spice gardens and plantations, but the highlights for us were the hands-on cooking classes and dinner on the beach at Galle"
