Sri Lanka is a country with a long & proud history and evidence of these are even seen through the many World Heritage Sites. You’ll be amazed at the diversity of landscapes, climates and things you can see and do within small travel distances. It is this extraordinary location that has also caught the attention of many film producers around the world and Bernard Tours is proud to have been associated with many Hollywood and Bollywood films produced in Sri Lanka such as “Common Man” starring Sir John Bentley and “READY” starring Salman Khan, to name a few. It was such a delight to handle the ground logistics, transport and location accommodation for both the film stars and crew which has recognized Bernard Tours as a total ground handling partner for films and documentaries.
