Stop At: Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications, Galle 80000 Sri Lanka

You will be starting your tour at 8:30 am in the morning from your hotel in Galle. Your English Speaking chauffeur guide will pick you up in a beautiful classic car.

The tour will start with a drive around the Galle Fort, where Colonial Dutch architecture is at its best. You can see a number of old buildings such as residences, shops and churches.  You may even be able to stop by some of them. Your guide will also take you to the ramparts of the old fort, giving you the opportunity for some great photographs. He will also give you a brief on the Colonial invasions of olden-day Ceylon and the Galle Fort’s history.

 You will then be driving towards the outer edges of Galle City to visit the oldest markets in Galle, the Dutch Fruit Market and the Dutch Green Market. The stalls of the markets are located within long columned arcades with tiled roofs, dating back to the Dutch era 300 years ago. The old architecture combined with the colorful stalls filled with fruits, vegetables and greens make an attractive sight. You can purchase some tropical fruits to take along for your car ride, if you wish.

Next you will be leaving the city to travel to the famous Handunugoda Tea Factory, the only factory in Sri Lanka that exclusively manufactures 100% Virgin White Tea.  Along the way you will be able to enjoy the sights of quaint little villages, golden paddy fields, deep green woods, and a number of birds and animals.

You will get to this tea factory in Ahangama approximately an hour later. There you will be treated to a great tea factory tour, which will enable you to learn about the artisanal manufacturing process of Virgin White Tea that is created pure and untouched by human hands. At the end of the tour you will also be treated to some complimentary piece of delicious cake and a cup of amazing tea. At the factory you will be able to visit the attached gift shop to purchase some fresh virgin white tea and a number of other souvenirs, if you wish.

On ending the tea factory visit, your chauffeur guide will drive you back to your hotel. The tour will be completed by 12:30 pm.

Duration: 4 hours
