Description

Enjoy a brief walk through the heart of the city's CBD and its old colonial buildings at the start of the tour. After a quick history lesson from your local guide, hop on a tuk tuk and hit the road! Also known as a rickshaw, tuk tuk is a common mode of transportation in Asia, including Sri Lanka.

Pass by the President's House, the Fort Clock Tower and the Colombo Lighthouse on your way to your first stop, the Colombo Harbour. Then, see the vibrant Chatham Street and take a quick stop at the former passenger terminal gate in Colobo Harbour.

Continue to the busy streets of Pettah and visit the Red Mosque and several market stalls. Meander around, sample local food and drinks or go shopping for some lovely souvenirs.

Hop back on the tuk tuk and continue your journey and proceed to the 360-year-old Wolvendaal Church, the oldest Dutch reformed church in Sri Lanka. Stroll through the church and see old tombstones of Dutch governors and maybe even have a chat with the church keeper.

Your tour continues along the Captain's Garden Hindu Temple, aka the Sri Kaileshwarm Kovil and the main place of worship for the many Hindus of Colombo. Walking around the temple, marvel at the colorful paintings and murals and have a chance to meet the devotees.

Then, see the Independence Square on your way to your last stop, the famous Gangaramaya Temple. One of the main Buddhist temples in Colombo, the cool, calming Gangaramaya is known for its architecture, paintings, and collection of artifacts from various historical eras. The temple sits across the road from the man-made and heavily-polluted Bera Lake. If time permits, we can take the bridge that leads to the temple on the lake, Seema Malaka.

From there, your Colombo tuk tuk tour will come to an end as we head back to the World Trade Center.
