June tip to Sri Lanka - help needed with preliminary thoughts

Jump to last reply

being a regular on the europe and lounge forums, i knew that I should come here for some reliable preliminary advice on a possible trip to Sri Lanka in June 2010.

the trip would cover 10/11 nights [depends on flight times] in June for me, DH and our two grown-up kids, we would use a driver/guide, and like a mixture of wild-life and sightseeing.

my questions are:

is June a good time to travel in Sri Lanka?

is it easy to organise this type of tour oneself, or would it be better to use a tour company ? [I found reddot for example on another thread] can anyone recommend a reliable tour company?

is 10-11 days long enough to see a reasonable amount? - most tours seem to take 14 days to go from the airport, to the "cultural triangle", down to Galle, and back up to Colombo. what could we miss out but still have a worthwhile trip?

can we fit a trip to Yala into this length of trip? how long should we stay there to make the most of it?

thanks so much for any help you can give me.

regards, ann

PS - I'm hoping to limit our travel and accommodation costs to £1000 per person. is that too little/excessively lavish? we don't need luxury, but don't want to slum it either.
