Review of: Galle Fort and City Cycling Tour
Very nice cycling tour. Chameera is a very good guide who know very well history about Galle. We saw Galle fort, fishers on the beach, fish & vegetable markets. Road is flat so no worry. Highly recommended.

Podi led a great tour with stops to see the lagoon, a coconut fiber operation, and a group of handweavers. Since we both had more time he added on a stop at an herb and spice garden that was fascinating. It was great to see some of the quieter side of Sri Lanka.

A fantastic tour where you’ll get off the beaten track and experience real Sri Lanka. An experienced and fun guide shows you how the locals live, no pressure on the speed you go at and time you spend on the tour. A nice change from the busyness of Unawatuna/Mirissa etc.

We did the half day bike tour through the countryside and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely way to see the area, with stops for fruit, a couple factories, and some animal sightings. Only comment would be that the owner and guide could be more enthusiastic and welcoming, but…
