We will meet at the world trade center, a land mark hard to be missed. Colombo is considered a shopper’s paradise with a fine selection of local malls, Sri Lankan arts and handicrafts. However, today you would explore the world-famous streets of pettah where you can find just about anything you want, from mobile phones and electronics to clothes and books. Witness the great colonial influences within the city from street names, to food, to architecture. The Portuguese, Dutch and British colonists who once occupied this great city each left their unique marks on Colombo. Learn more than you can from a guide book from our experienced English-speaking guide. Your guide, well-versed in the inner-workings of Colombo, will always be prepared to impart his knowledge of this fine city’s history. We schedule our walking tours for the evening as it allows us to conduct them in relative comfort when the humidity of Colombo’s tropical conditions is far less intense. This also helps you experience the city when it is unwinding from the hustle and bustle of the day.
