The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Cricket is a much loved sport in Sri Lanka that is played island wide. The Galle & Kandy School Cricket Tour is a memorable 10-day tour that will provide an opportunity for schoolboys to play on a selection of Test Match grounds.The tour also offers an educational experience with visits to the elephant orphanage in Pinnawala, the ancient Temple of the Tooth and Galle’s 17C Dutch Fort. We have also included a few days with the Foundation of Goodness for an enriching experience of interaction with a coastal community.
Red Dot cricket itineraries go through three simple stages: a Sample Itinerary (as below), which might meet your aims and aspirations for the most part and which can be adjusted as required; a Draft Itinerary, drawn up once an itinerary has been agreed upon in principle with all parties; and a Final Itinerary, which confirms your arrangements a few weeks before travel. Red Dot can also arrange for good quality tour cricket shirts and polo shirts for collection on your arrival.
All our tours are entirely flexible and can be tailored to your requirements. Our expertise in organizing Sri Lanka cricket tours over 15 years comes alongside the sort of sharp prices you would expect from a proven travel company based in Sri Lanka.
