Had the pleasure of meeting Madawa in March 2024 for a wonderful walking tour of Galle Fort. Could not have asked for a better experience! Madawa speaks fluent Enlgish, is extremely knowledgeable of all thing Galle Fort.
This tour is absolutely worth your time!

We always like to do a walking tour around new places we visit. We knew very little of Galle before visiting but after this tour we felt like we knew the full history.

Madawa our guide was very very good. Hugely knowledgeable of the area as he has lived there all his life, his English was perfect and knew all the answers to the questions we had.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend.

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.

Our guide Madawa knows a lot about the history of this city and his country. He tells a lot and takes you through Galle Fort.
He will try to answer all your questions.
Pleasant to deal with and accessible.

We learned a lot about Sri Lanka through this tour. It is really recommended because then you know what you see when you walk around there.
