What you'll do

Welcome to a real Colombo Street Food and city walk adventure that will showcase the best of Colombo in a few hours. To summarize the tour, We will drive the guests to a nice elevated tower to watch the sunset and also to learn some history on a temple close to the vicinity. Thereafter, will introduce them to the local street food sold by the local vendors. We will provide them with a snack - Isso Wade (Prawn topped lentil patties) which is a local evening snack, a bottle of premium drinking water and some of the others available like freshly made local fruit pickle. I will also provide tissues and hand sanitizer, as I always practice high safety and hygiene standards. The guests will be taken to the Galle face pier, where they will walk with the cool breeze and enjoy the view of the sea shore. As part of the sightseeing, guests will be taken around the historical colombo lighthouse (built in 1952) and also the famous Red Mosque (built in 1909) explaining significance of both landmarks. Guests will also have a sight of the picturesque Gangaramaya Temple and some other landmarks for photos. Other landmarks include famous bazaar markets and judicial and other administrative buildings in the vicinity.
