Dinuka was an engaging guide to Colombo's main sights in the Cinnamon Gardens and Fort areas. His guidance and explanations in Gangaramaya Temple were a highlight.

We'd recommend in particular for those with a limited time in Colombo as the tour gave us a great feel for the city and its history in just one morning.

We arrived into Colombo not knowing anything about the city, its landscape, or its history. This was all fixed however, when Danuka took us for an epic 4 hour journey across the city, and during it we got an absolutely amazing flavor of Colombo. From temples (Buddhist and Hindu), to the city town-hall, to the independence square, to even the hustling/bustling inner city markets, it was an absolute treat being with Danuka.

Danuka explained to us the historical and cultural contexts of each of the places, along with helping us understand the various factors that govern each facet of life in Sri Lanka. Being an avid fan of cricket, we even took a de-tour and I got to see the Sri Lanka Cricket Museum, which I would have never known about otherwise.

Throughout the journey, Danuka was cordial, patient, and most important of all akin to a friend. Indebted. Highly recommend this tour for any person .

This was an excellent way to learn about and see the sights of Colombo.
Our guide Danuka was brilliant, knowledgable and very friendly.
He picked us up from our hotel and took us to all the points of interest in the city . He was a very safe driver around the busy streets. He even took us to a good local restaurant on the beach front so we could sample a traditional Sri Lankan lunch.
If you are visiting Columbo I would definitely recommend this tour.

An amazing tour around Colombo, with a mix of modern and old city vibes. Dinuka was just the perfect tour guide, friendly professional and knowledgeable.
We visited a number of locations from historic places to cultural sites to old town to modern hotspots.
Highly recommend #colombobaytuktuktour with Mr Dinuka to start your holiday in Colombo and plan the following days

PS: Dinuka is easily accessible via WhatsApp and other channels for queries and clarifications.

We had a full day private tuk tuk tour of Colombo with Mr Dinuka and his driver. What wonderful people! Our experience has been fantastic! What we really loved is that it was not at all the typical tourist tour where one has to see specific things in a limited and predetermined amount of time. Quite the opposite! We had complete control over the tour. We decided what we wanted to do, how long we were going to stay at each place, and we could even make changes to our itinerary on the spot. This is very rare indeed! We had the feeling that we were with local friends who were helping us around. The tuk tuks were very comfortable and the guiding excellent. Nothing was trouble to them. We actually took more time and ended the tour almost two hours later than initially planned, however Dinuka did not even charge extra for that! I have been traveling to Sri Lanka, India and all over Asia for many decades and I have never experienced anything like this before! He also personally went to the train station and bought for us the train tickets for our return trip to Colombo without charging anything extra for his effort! We were humbled by his kindness. What a wonderful person! The enthusiasm, professionalism and honesty of Mr Dinuka is very rare indeed in today's travel industry. One has to reward and support such people. Please do yourselves a favor and take a tour with Dinuka and his team whenever you are in Colombo.

I did this tour on my first day in Sri Lanka. I get to see so many famous city attractions but also many spots which I would have never discovered by myselfe. Dinuka was an amazing guide and very well prepared he had lots of water for me and even a cool refreshing towel - I felt like flying fist class😉 He picked me up at my hostel and brought my back great service. The lunch was very authentic I was the only tourist and the food was simple but delicious. If you want to see many places and have an easygoing fun guide you have to book this tour.

Dancuk was our driver and was excellent throughout the day. He was waiting for us at the hotel lobby and ensured we were settled and had everything we needed. He explained the plan for the day and made a point of checking that we were happy with the plan. He was very informative and answered all of our questions at each of the stops. The lunch was great and was able to deal with a food allergy with ease. At no point did we feel rushed or forced to visit anywhere or buy anything. I would highly recommend this and as 2 females travelling felt very safe. Great way to see and learn all about Colombo city.

This tour was amazing!! Being a solo female traveller i felt so safe and had so much fun exploring colombo by tuktuk. Dinuka was brilliant in explaining all the different heritage sites and temples. Whilst also giving tips about my stay in colombo. He was very warm and welcoming offering refreshments. We also went to an delicious place to eat traditional sri lankan food which i loved.

Would highly recommend to anyone travelling and want to see colombo in a day. Dinuka is brilliant tour guide. Would recommend for solo travellers, families, couples everyone.

Would definetly do this again :)

We had arranged a City Tour by Tuk Tuk from a cruise ship visit to Colombo in March 2020. Unfortunately we have just had to cancel, as the ship itinerary has changed so much. However, Dinuka and his team were really helpful in both arranging the trip and only just now having to cancel it. Based on their customer service, I wouldn't have the slightest hesitation in booking with them again. Full marks indeed (and thanks!)

It is easy for people to say a tour is the beat and you should do it, and we will all make our decisions based on our own experiences and research, however this was easily our beat pick.

‘Gino’ is a lovely guy and works hard to make your trip enjoyable, taking you to all the major sites. He adds to the experience with his knowledge and the little snippets of info.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and especially ‘Gino’, he made us feel welcome and at ease in what can be a mad city.

If you are looking to do a tour of Colombo to get a feel of the place then this will be a good pick.

We will definitely be recommending him to our family and friends.

Thank you ‘Gino’ for introducing us to your lovely city.
