Overview
Explore Colombo like a local—in a tuk-tuk 3-wheeler—on this fun small-group tour. There’s no need to worry about negotiating the fare or planning the route: Your guide does all the work. See sights from Colombo Harbor to the President’s House; shop for snacks and bargains at Pettah’s market stalls; and admire Wolvendaal Church, Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, and the Temple of Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil.
Highlights
  • Nip, dive, and weave through Colombo’s traffic in a tuk-tuk 3-wheeler
  • Explore heritage sites, back alleys, markets, and even Bera Lake
  • Sample Sri Lanka’s favorite king coconut, a super-sweet variety
  • Capped at 12 travelers—in multiple tuk-tuks—for a more personal adventure

We went around Columbo by Tuk Tuk and it was a great way to see the sights in a short space of time. Make sure you agree a price beforehand and specify exactly how much per person and how long your tour will be.
