Very interesting, highly recommended

The owner, Sebastian, gave a warm welcome and a very informative guided tour. There’s a lot more to tea than I ever knew certainly.It’s well worth taking the time to hear about the very specific tolerances in the process they constantly endeavour to achieve on a daily basis. (and who buys the lowest grade from them!)

Tour of Sri Lanka with kids (2 and 4) - Williams Tour

We started from Sirigya, including one day in Polonaruwa up until North (Trincomalle and Nilaveli) and then went down to Kandy, Nuwara Elia, Elia, etc. We visited the oliphant orphanage, the botanic garden, a tea factory and many other things (waterfalls, markets). We spent one week on the beaches in the South (Tangalle, Mirissa, Bentota, etc). Greshan William (the owner from William Tour) offered us a custom-made trip. He was able to propose nice and charming accommodation for cheap prices and let us discover the true Sri Lanka, including its inhabitants, without taking commissions. The children were delighted and our guide was always able to find something of interest for them. We hope to be back soon and will certainly travel with Greshan who can be trusted 100%.
