This Foodie tour is perfect for those who enjoy food as much as they like travelling.  The many varieties of local spices, fish, fruit and vegetables make for great mouth-watering cuisine, but when fused with the influences from India, Arabia and Asia, Sri Lanka is Nirvana for Foodies.  As well as visiting some of the best eateries in the country, you’ll participate in all the stages of making a meal- from shopping for ingredients at local markets to preparing and cooking a tasty Sri Lankan curry.

When combined with stunning views over the Indian Ocean, or over the rolling hills in Tea country, your eyes and stomach will be blissfully happy.

The tour is run by Walkers Tours, a Sri Lankan tour operator for 50 years, with the accessibility expertise of Access the globe.  The tour transport is air conditioned, carbon neutral and is wheelchair accessible with UK and European safety fittings.
