From US$40.00
Enjoy a 6-hour city sightseeing tour of Colombo, the bustling capital of Sri Lanka. An informative guide takes you to major highlights such as the ocean-facing urban park of Galle Face Green; the Buddhist temples of Kelaniya, Gangaramaya and Seema Malaka; and the War Memorial, Independence Square and more. End your tour with some bargain hunting on a shopping excursion.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel in Colombo at 9am and then proceed to Kalaniya Temple.

Colombo city tour

We had a great tour guide who was patient and helpful during the Colombo city tour. Nadeeka our guide was very cooperative and ensured we had our own time in completing the visit. He was in no hurry to rush through the trip.
