To shed some light and history on the company and its roots,founded in 1946 by P.A Ediriweera, Ceylon Tours Limited put Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) on the global leisure map even before the country gained independence in 1948. With only a handful of hotels and poor infrastructure facilities in the country, the new company faced a daunting task in attracting foreign tourists to visit Sri Lanka. Now with Sri Lanka’s growing interest the company’s focus is on promoting responsible tourism.
Striving to satisfy customers with their tailor-made holiday packages, Ceylon Tours Limited has also pioneered many developments both local and abroad, being one of the key figures in the development of the tourism industry of the Maldives, and remains one of the top promoters of Maldivian resorts. “Backed by the wisdom gained through decades of experience, our mission is to provide quality, excellence and value for your money, tailoring your holiday to suit your budget and interests”, the Managing Director explains.
