Colombo City Tour (Sri Lanka)

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.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      I have booked for 6 nights and 7 days package with Direct Link. Travel agent (Anto) and the cab driver (Atheek) was excellent combination. They clearly understand the customer needs and executes well. Atheek went to the next level with greatest satisfaction in touring the cities. I strongly recommend Atheek for touring Srilanka.

      The travel agent didn't tell the hotel about our anniversary. The package is overpriced. Although the cab driver was decent person but he didn't have knowledge about nearby hotels and restaurants. It was an average trip. Got home safely.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      We are satisfied in hotels except 2. One of them has no proper WiFi access where as another one we asked for a closer one to Mirissa but provided far way. And as a foreigner we weren't aware of holidays in Srilanka . We were regularly in touch with them when demanding places and other things , they could have informed about the holidays in there . First day in Colombo was a complete waste because of this . No shops or anything was not open. 1. Nuwera to Ella train journey 2. Ella 3. Mirissa beaches..

      Kudos to Mrs. Charitha & her team from Vista Vacations and the Travel Triangle team for making the Sri Lanka tour one of the most memorable trips in my life!! The entire trip including pickups, accomodations, meals, and sightseeing was perfectly organized. The guide provided during the entire tour was very helpful. Hotels were beautiful and comfortable and the food provided was really nice. Overall, a very decent touring experience.

      Good Trip planned with Overa tours (via travel triangle) . All the Hotels are good except Araliya Green Hills – NuwaraEliya due to hotel staff behavior and room comfort. Our vehicle was excellent but Driver is not very polite with kids. He needs to be little patient with kids. Driver does not have much idea about the Sightseeing places to visit in Colombo.

      Elegance tours made our trip amazing by making arrangements in good hotels and luxury cab. Driver was well informed and fluent English speaking guy. Mr Bhudhika from elegance took personal interest and taken care of us. We were very happy and had wonderful trip. Starting from airport to ending at airport, we had great time. I liked Nuwareliya and Bantota the most. Hotel at river in Bantota added to more amazing experience. Because of New Year period, we did not find much crowd except at Nuwareliya. We saw water landing plan in lake of Nuwareliya. Boat safari was another beautiful experience. Dutch fort near Bantota was beautiful. Day trip of Colombo was also very good. Overall whole trip was amazing.

      Sri Lanka is a a very serene, clean and a beautiful country. My entire family had a wonderful and a memorable stay. The hotels booked were good and comfortable.We had no problem during the entire trip.Our cab driver was an extremely courteous man with a smile always on his face.My dad has muscular problem in his legs, the driver was very helpful , helping him in and out of the car and took good care of him when my father was unable to accompany us at some of the places.It was under his pursuance that we got a chance for river rafting though it was not in our itinerary but on our way to next spot.River rafting indeed became one of the most amazing experiences of the entire trip.The trip was very well organized.Since we were vegetarian we had little problem for food for lunch but the cab driver made sure we had our lunch at good places and will look around for restaurants for it and show us the menu.
