About City Tour of Colombo

Colombo is the capital city of Sri Lanka and a city tour of Colombo is entirely warranted. There are endless sights to see in Colombo. There are incredible spas, beautiful natural parks and canals, romantic beaches, exotic restaurants, and brilliant shopping destinations. For a planned city tour in a short span of time, it may be a good idea to hire a travel agency or a guide. Another way to go is to take the Tuk-Tuk Safari which takes the travelers around the biggest hotspots of Colombo on luxury tours covering almost all hotspots and providing pick up and drop facilities from the hotel.

Colombo’s full city tour is full of fun, adventure, and rejuvenation. For a romantic day and night, try Mt. Lavinia Beach. Exquisite natural beauty, a romantic ambiance, and exotic seafood – all in one package. There are too many shopping destinations to cover in Colombo. Each shopping hotspot has its own unique features and merchandise. To relax from a hectic schedule and tiresome travel itinerary, try a local spa for an Ayurvedic massage session. The city tour of Colombo has all this to offer and much more. One should definitely try out the seafood here. It is spicy, delicious, and fresh. There are some great locations such as Gangaramaya Temple and Wolvendaal Church as well, that are religious in nature. They are worth visiting for the sheer architectural brilliance and ambiance if nothing else. Another great place to visit for a full day of family fun is Leisure World, Water Park.

Some of the top city tour guides based in Colombo are Colombo City Guide, Sri Lanka Day Tours, Golden Lanka Travels, and NKAR Travels and Tours. These guides have been at the top of their business for many years now and know the city very well. With flexible packages and a great travel itinerary, there is no reason to stop oneself from hiring such professional expertise. The Tuk-Tuk Safari in Colombo also provides stellar city tour services. The best thing about the Tuk-Tuk rides is that there are three different timings for their service and their packages of the city tour are completely customizable. The customer can choose specific activities and locations to experience. Also, whether it is the famous Tuk-Tuk or any travel guide that the traveler hires, there are very flexible payment options. Both cash and card are accepted everywhere – in either LKR or USD.

      If entry vouchers were included it will be good.I feel 3 rd day travel was long,so the hotel should be booked in nuwara eliyia and not in ramoda. First day and last day hotel was good . Inbetweeners it was ok.

      Allocated Driver is really bad. He is expecting and trying to force us to do about which he is thinking. He was taking us only where ever he has some contacts. I believe he will get some money(commission) on thoae places. He was also not paying the bill for his food and without informing us he just added his food bill with ours. Really we felt very bad.

      Roshan, the driver cum guide was excellent. His knowledge of the area, driving skills , politeness, interactive behaviour, punctuality is praiseworthy. Ranuka, who interacted prior to the trip and during the trip is to be commended for his quick responses and positive suggestions. The 6 - 7 hours of driving in the road was not factored into the time and space planning. One had to to check in late evening and check out next day, which gave very little time to wander around the city of Kandy as well as Bentota. We couldn’t enjoy the ambience of the sea at leisure as most of the time was spent on the road. One should have been advised of the travel time from place A to B. Otherwise it was a good trip. The cleanliness of the country, the excellent condition of the roads, the traffic discipline is really praiseworthy as also the politeness and friendliness of the people.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      The hotel Rivi Ras in Colombo was hard to find and there was no power when we reached. The hotel didn't have power back up. We waited for 2 hours in the night before we were adjusted in Ranveli Beach Resort. The hotel was dirty, bathrooms were smelly and mosquito infested. The last hotel Hamilton View in Colombo was a homestay and was bad. The entrance was dark and not suitable for families with kids. They have a cat which is not vaccinated for Rabies. The hotel was also very hard to find and we had to hurriedly stay I'm a hotel arranged by the driver. The hotels in Mirissa and Ambalangoda were fine and as described. The stays at Colombo and Negombo was extremely ill organised. Beautiful beaches at Mirissa and Ambalangoda with it's golden White sand and Rocky beaches. Sigiriya rock and Dambulla Caves we're also mesmerising. Sri Lanka is extremely clean with no litter in sight. A very beautiful country with exotic locals and European feel.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      It was an excellent planning and support provided by the Daya Holidays team. Special mention to the planner & co-ordinator Madumalee who has covered all the places we wanted to visit in the short trip of 4 days. The Vehicle provided for the journey was excellent & the hotel bookings were good with minor hiccups here & there but rectified on notice. The plan was well executed by the Chauffer Sheryl who was along with us for the entire trip right from picking up us from the airport till send off at the mid night after 4 days. Few cons are : We Couldnt see a glimpse of our travel insurance as assured... Water Bottles, Sim cards and other things which are mentioned immediately available at airport are not immediately available. However we have followed up to receive the same. Overall it was a good experience :-)
