What people are saying about City Tours in Colombo
Colombo street food can be a bit a mystery to outsiders. But once you know where to look, it's a very savoury and unique cuisine built from some many cultures. The tour lets try the best local treats and entrees without worry. The operator is VERY helpful...willing to customise for any request so you can learn as much as possible about the culture and cuisine. I can't recommend this tour enough to friends travelling the Sri Lanka for the first time. Amazing tour with a local.
