Experience  

Experience a tour for all your senses in a rustic and realistic safari of colombo. What’s more real and native to Sri Lanka than a tuk tuk? Venture across Colombo, the commercial hub of Sri Lanka enjoying the breeze and the passing sights on your way to various popular destinations. Uncover the religious, colonial and historic attractions that add character to this buzzing metropolis. Spend a good four hours with our morning or evening (choose according to your preference) Colombo Tuk Tuk safari.

Our friendly Tuk Tuk chauffeur will pick you up from your colombo city hotel at the mentioned time (depending on the booked safari) or the Galle face hotel (for cruise ship passengers). Your first stop will be the Independence Memorial Hall which was constructed to honor Sri Lanka’s independence from the british rule. Observe its beautifully carved pillars and walk the  surrounding tree-lined grounds. Next, Visit one of Sri Lanka’s oldest marketplaces, the Manning market which is full of local fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Continue the local shopping experience with a stroll along the streets of Pettah market, Colombo’s biggest and ethnically diverse market where you can find any kind of merchandise for a good bargain. Taste some delicious spiced fruit locally known as accharu before continuing to the Dutch Hospital. A ‘high-end’ hospital back in the days has now been refurbished so that guests can observe the  stunning architecture and the shady courtyards. Head towards the magnificent Sambodhi Chaithya a stunning temple constructed by the renowned Sri Lankan engineer A.N.S Kulasinghe. Constructed at a height so that those out at sea can view the stupa, the view from the top is simply breathtaking.

No tour of colombo is complete without a tea tasting! Sri Lanka is famous for its tea production. Taste the variety of tea that’s been produced in the local tea tasting. End the tour with a delicious authentic local lunch and then get dropped at your hotel or any other preferred location in the city. Those who have booked the evening sunset city tour will also get to visit Galle Face green for a breezy stroll during sunset and the chance to taste some local snacks. Finish off the evening tour with an authentic dinner experience before being dropped back at your hotel or any other preferred spot. The Colombo Tuk Tuk safari will be a memorable experience because of the spectacular monuments that paint the history of Colombo and the encounter with the friendly locals.
