The Airbnb host for this tour contracts outs to tour guides that are offering tours elsewhere (our tour guide for this experience offers a similar tour on TripAdvisor for $35 USD). We enjoyed the opportunity to see many of the main attractions in Colombo, and having a guide was immensely helpful for navigating the city. Our guide, Dinuka. was well prepared with water and regularly checked in to make sure we were comfortable. The lunch was authentic and delicious. In regards to the information shared on the tour, we would have appreciated more story telling and explanations of what we were seeing along the way.

I had a great time in colombo; probably the best way to get the taste of the mess in colombo traffic in the rush hour. I am not a big fan of street food but i tried! The host gave me some good tips to get the best out of Sri Lanka over the next couple of days.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much there was to see in Colombo in a short duration. The experience was made enjoyable by Dinuka my host who was really passionate about delivering the best experience possible. Although I could have visited the same places on my own, the real experience is in doing it with a local who had plenty of stories to tell about the sights we visited. Thank you Amila and Dinuka for hosting this experience, you can experience a lot in a very little time and in my opinion, it is the best way to truly experience Colombo.
