Wat je gaat doen

We'll begin across the harbor & explore through Colombo Fort. Discover the story of Colombo and its ancient seafaring trade. Learn about the Fort's colonization & hear the stories of its inhabitants throughout the ages as you walk along age-old streets & witness the heritage and architectural remnants of the past.

Next, we cross a canal to reach Pettah, a trade district selling goods of every description. Wander through a maze of streets & alleyways, & uncover hidden historical landmarks & cultural gems within the hustle & bustle. Walk through a farmer's market & discover a variety of local produce. Finally, escape the madness in Pettah by visiting a beautiful sacred and spiritual space. Acquire an insight into the different faiths and cultures of Colombo.

Next, we head to Slave Island, a place shrouded in history. Hear its interesting stories as we walk along a lake towards another stunning sacred space designed by Bawa, renowned Sri Lankan architect and father of Tropical Modernism. Grab some awesome cityscapes and witness the transformation of Colombo into a megapolis.

Finally, we'll explore the Cinnamon Gardens to unravel a couple of Victorian-era monuments, wonder at grandeur architecture of public buildings and private mansions, walk through a historic park & browse through local art works before ending at a place of cultural significance.

I truly recommend this tour! Wonderful experience 😃 I have had an amazing time and learned a great deal in a very short time. It was awfully interesting, very diverse and just a lot of fun. It really exceeded my expectations! I could never have done this by myself. Rushad knows a lot about so many things, gladly answers all your questions and just makes you feel welcome. Where he can he will even adapt the tour a bit to take into account your interests!

Rushad gave an informative and thorough tour of Colombo. I think I saw everything on my list, learnt more about the city's history. Rushad answered all my questions and made suggestions along the way too. I'm grateful for his flexibility and professionalism.

Dear Rushad Your guidance in Colombo was great and I learned a lot. You not only visited popular spots, but also gave us detailed history. You also listened to my poor English well and spoke in plain English. You answered every question politely. You have taken care of my condition, such as whether I am thirsty or tired. It was very good to participate. Anyone who wants to participate can feel good about him and have a good time.

I loved this experience! I had the best time with Rushad and the others in the group. I didn’t get any breakfast at the hostel I was staying at and Rushad made sure I was well fed and happy within the first 15min. The places we visited were super interesting and I definitely wouldn’t have found them by myself. I highly recommend this tour for everyone staying in Colombo. I Rushad also made sure I was able to get an Uber and got to my next destination - which especially as a solo traveler was highly appreciated.
