Colombo: City Street Food Tour by Tuk Tuk

1. Colombo: City Street Food Tour by Tuk Tuk

This Colombo tour takes you around the best spots of the city with a focus on foodie destinations. Enjoy 360-degree views of the city, visits to famous monuments, and the opportunity to try new flavors along the way. After pickup from your hotel in Colombo, take off on a convertible tuk tuk (three-wheeler), each holding up to two passengers. The tuk tuks are very comfortable and have many facilities including onboard coolers, high-end sound systems, and 2-way radios. The three-wheelers also have wet weather covers, and umbrellas are provided for bad weather conditions. Once settled into your tuk tuk, travel to the giant local produce market in Pettah and experience the noise, smells, and sounds of this place, where thousands buy the best vegetables to take home. Go for a walk along Galle Face Green afterwards, then savor egg hoppers, normal hoppers, tempered kadala (chickpeas), prawn vade (shrimp balls), and parippu vade (lentil fritters) in the street food stalls that line the Green. As an added perk, enjoy alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available on the tuk tuk. As you explore, get the prime opportunity to luxuriate your taste buds with cheap, delicious food sold by street sellers as well as expensive, equally delicious food from boutique restaurants. If you are a foodie, then this will provide the ultimate food experience. At the end of the tour, get dropped off if you are going right back to your hotel. If you choose to have further fun and continue the evening, your chauffeur will be able to provide you with information on the best places to do so. You can select one of these places and get dropped off there too.
