I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. My guide was brilliant from start to finish. His knowledge of Galle fort area and Sri Lankan history was fantastic. He answered all my questions and I learnt so much. I have a slight disability, but he went at my pace and I never felt rushed or a burden. My guide was respectful and courteous of me being a female on my own. Thank you

Madawa was a brilliant tour guide. We did the walking tour with him and it was a very good decision to do this tour and we got a very good insight not only about Galle but also about Sri Lanka. Madawa was very knowledgeable in all aspects, history,politics, you name it he can answer any question. The tour was great and we wish had more time with madawa to know all about Sri lanka

Madawa our guide was brilliant and the tour flew past

He covered the history of the Galle Fort and was also able to answer any questions we had on Sri Lanka in a very relaxed still

We were so interested that we hadn't realised we had completed a complete circle of the Forte area

I can't recommend this tour with Madawa enough

In the two weeks we spent in Sri Lanka, our walking tour with Madawa was a highlight for learning about Galle and Sri Lankan history and culture. We visited Galle near the end of our vacation, and so we had many questions about Sri Lanka culture and things we had observed. Madawa was extremely knowledgable and answered all our questions. The tour was very enjoyable and we learned so much about Galle and its fort.

Highly recommend taking a tour with Madawa!

The tour was very informative, took about almost two hours all around the city with information about the buildings and the history of not only Galle but the whole island too. A funny, enjoyable, educative guide from a well informed local.
