On top of Sigiriya, Happy Tour operators from Russia handled by Aitken Spence Travels

A group of 12 tour operators from St. Petersburg, Russia is currently in Sri Lanka for a familiarisation tour with Aitken Spence Travels.

The group leader Gorodenskiy Dmitry stated that he along with his other colleagues are very happy to be in Sri Lanka, which incidentally is their first visit although they have been promoting destination Sri Lanka. 

“We are very happy about the security provided and felt everything is very normal. We love the Sri Lankan people and they are so friendly and helpful,” said Gorodenskiy.

He was confident that his Russian colleagues in the group will promote destination Sri Lanka and drive the much-needed tourists to the island. 

The group visited Sigiriya and climbed the 660 ft. tall rock capital of King Kasyapa which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sigiriya is considered one of the best-preserved examples of ancient urban planning. The group would also make their way to the Dambulla cave temple, the Kandy Temple, experience a tea plantation, visit the gentle giants at the Pinnawela elephant orphanage and sum the tour by spending some time to enjoy the beach prior to departure.
