Independent tailor-made holidays to Sri Lanka and Maldives
Tikalanka is the independent tailor-made holidays specialist to Sri Lanka and Maldives, which means we organise private, bespoke holidays to your own specifications. Please take a look at our website at www.tikalanka.com for more information on Sri Lanka, Maldives and Tikalanka. You may either create your own holiday online using our sophisticated and user-friendly Trip Planner, or contact us directly to discuss your holiday options in more detail. Either way, we will be very happy to arrange a holiday just for you.
As background, John Beswetherick and S.G. Pathirana (Pathi) became close friends more than 19 years ago before founding Tikalanka over 14 years ago. We have a dedicated team of Sri Lanka Tourist Board-licensed chauffeur guides who will get you under the skin of the country and show you the real Sri Lanka. We provide expert planning of individual itineraries with our intimate and in-depth knowledge, and unlike larger package tour companies, our Sri Lanka and Maldives holidays are truly tailor-made and created to your very own interests and requirements.
What we do best
Our priority is to show interested travellers the real Sri Lanka, introducing them to the best this tropical island paradise has to offer – its natural beauty, magnificent ancient cities, stunning hill country, exotic and accessible wildlife, and superb sandy beaches. We can arrange everything from a relaxing luxury tour of the island's cultural sites and stunning natural environment, to action-packed family holidays. We have extended our reach to include Maldives, a string of pearls scattered over the deep blue Indian Ocean.
Tikalanka arranges everything for you, including:
- Return Economy or Business Class flights
- Air-conditioned transport with dedicated Sri Lanka Tourist Board-licensed chauffeur guide
- Entrance tickets to all sites and a variety of activities.

There is so much to do during your visit to Sri Lanka that it may be hard to know where to start. We have put together some taster itineraries for you to see the range of accommodation and activities available on the island. Please go to www.tikalanka.com/tika-tasters for more information. You may like to use them as a starting point to plan your very own trip, or we can do it all for you if you prefer – the choice is yours!
Unlike Sri Lanka, most visitors stay in one island resort for their entire time in Maldives and all resorts offer a beach holiday as well!
Remember that all of our holidays to Sri Lanka and Maldives are truly tailor made with no set dates, accommodation, duration, routes or visits, so each holiday is unique and specially created to your very own interests and requirements.
Tikalanka actively encourages responsible and sustainable travel to Sri Lanka and Maldives and makes a contribution to community projects in Sri Lanka for every holiday booked. We are a member of ResponsibleTravel.com, a supporter of the FCO's 'Know Before You Go' campaign and the global animal welfare charity Born Free Foundation, and advocate carbon neutral flights.
