I have been working as a travel guide for over 25 years now, helping travelers explore and experience Sri Lanka in a hassle-free, safe and fulfilling manner. Over the years, with the help of guest feedback, I acquired the expertise to create curated experiences. I created the Colombo City Ride for Airbnb, in collaboration with Dinuka Sampath. Dinuka is a local, who has been conducting city tours of Colombo for over 5 years now. Together, we designed this comprehensive tour to help visitors enjoy the large variety of cultural, historical and lifestyle experiences available in the greater Colombo area. I'm sure that those taking this tour will gain a true insight into the multiple aspects of life in urban Sri Lanka and will appreciate the cultural and historical heritage of Colombo city.
