Great way to see a lot of Colombo in a short time, Guide great.

A fun way to get a feel for Colombo and experience the cultures, Tour includes Temples, Dutch Church and major sites and good balance between entertaining Tuk Tuk ride and walkabout sections. 1 to 1 with Guide was great really knowledgeable and helpful. Good value and only half a day. Recommended.

Fantastic experience

Serge was a wonderful guide! Knowledgeable, caring, friendly! In a short while he showed us some fantastic sights and taught us so many interesting facts about Colombo and Sri Lanka in general. Remember about some money for customary tips (for tuk-tuk drivers and the guide). I definitely recommend the tour.
