About Colombo Urban Adventures
Are you ready for a real-life video game?! Because that’s what it feels like to navigate Colombo by tuk tuk! Head down narrow streets, past monuments, and into some of the city’s most significant spots, exploring the way locals get around — by tuk tuk! You won’t see this side of Colombo on your own! Sightseeing makes us hungry, which is why we’ve loaded this Colombo walking tour with tons of food stops to keep you fuelled along the way! See the city sites while tasting typical Sri Lankan street food like hoppers, wadai, and kothu from the places where locals love to snack. Eat, eat, repeat, indeed!

Colombo Walking Food Tour
Forget relying on instinct and guesswork, and discover Colombo’s foods with a guide to show you what’s what. On this walking tour, view sights such as the Khan Clock Tower as you dip into markets, shops, and eateries favored by locals. Sample staples such as "hopper" pancakes and "achcharu" (pickles); and finish with "kothu" (meat or vegetable roti) at Galle Face Green—all goodies that you could easily overlook alone.

Hi... Due to the increase amount of security, we would not be able to do any pick up from the ports. We operate from our standard starting points. Please let us know if you require any further information. Thank you.
