An excellent gastronomic walking tour of Colombo. You visit areas you wouldn’t necessarily head to on your own, with very personable and informative guides. The food is the main feature from the start and ranges from snacks to sweet drinks to meals. Arrive hungry! The tours are also eco friendly, with plastic bottles being recycled to make bricks. Highly recommended.

What a great way to spend my last day in Sri Lanka - fun exploring in a tuk tuk. I was fortunate to be the only one and thank you to Sujith for taking extra time to impart a wealth of knowledge. I truly valued the time at the Hindu temple. This is a great opportunity to see a lot in a short time.

What a wonderful introduction to Colombo and Sri Lanka. Thanks to Sujith for the great walking tour combining interesting sights with wonderful food. Don’t eat lunch as you need to have lots of space to fit in the huge variety of treats. Another highlight was meeting Pettah's MGR - YouTube star! This is a must to do.

A wonderful tour filled with history and culture. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained things clearly and showed us places that were very interesting. We were lucky enough to have the tour as just the three of us which made it personal and informative. Our guide was clearly very knowledgeable about Colombo and knew many people which made the experience more enjoyable.

We booked a walking tour of Pettah with a foodie flavour. Although we have visited Colombo many times, we were keen to learn more about the area and its history. It certainly took us to areas we would not normally visit. The crowds, sights and smells of the market and the harrowing traffic was certainly a fun and memorable experience. However, unfortunately we learned little of the history of the area, and to be truthful, learned very little at all. Our guide was very sweet but this was her first tour. Consequently it was a little disorganised and uninformative.
