Leisurely and informative tour
Our guide Nishantha was very helpful and friendly. He provided us with snacks and water for the tour also. We visited churches, temples, the Dutch canal, the lagoon, the fort and the very lively fish market too. We learned about the people, religions, culture and even the Sinhalese alphabet. We chatted about lots of other things on a lovely, informative morning tour with our guide. A great price for a lot of knowledge!

A nice tour in Negombo with everything you want to see
I stayed two days at the place of Nishanta and was offered to do a guided tour around the city with its highlights. We started in the morning and had a nice day with stops at churches, temples and lagoons and fishermarkets. After the tour I had a nice full Body massage on a place which he recommended. He is very kind and if you have any ideas or wishes he will help you out. If you want to have any idea what is around and see the city just ask him and tell what you wanna do.
Thanks for the hospitality and the nice tour :)

Knowledgeable and accommodating
There is a default itinerary for the tour but the guide was happy to adjust it. I was planning a boat ride the next day so we skipped that and went to lovely local park instead. I learned a lot about Negombo.
