Colombo is the capital and largest city in Sri Lanka. Nestled on the west coast of the beautiful, tropical island of Sri Lanka, Colombo is also known as Ceylon and has a rich history dating way back to when it established ancient east – west trade routes. It is a place where the original soul of Buddhism still thrives and where nature’s beauty is plentiful and in pristine condition.

There are few places in the world that are able to provide visitors such a remarkable combination of spectacular landscapes, unspoilt beaches and fascinating cultural heritage in such a condensed location.

Colombo is starting to make a name for itself as the home of abundant wildlife, and visitors are finding Sri Lanka has one of the best wildlife experiences in the world. The exotic destination offers a mix of landscapes and vast varieties of big game animals and marine life, all in a close compact location that’s supported by a good tourism infrastructure. Sri Lanka’s wildlife landscape is unique for such a compact destination, offering a variation of climate and biodiversity that’s normally only seen in a much larger environment spanning an entire continent.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
