What people are saying about Colombo

This is honestly on of the best city tours I have experienced. Due to COVID we were the only ones in the bus which made it a much more enjoyable experience as we really got to set the pace of the tour. Kurama was an excellent tour guide having in depth knowledge of the countries history and that of the locales we visited. The museum, independence square and the temple are just a few of the several places we got to visit. All in all a perfect outing except for the torrential downpour at the very end, but that is to be expected in Sri Lanka. Highly recommend this tour and be sure to ask for Kurama.

It was superb! Ruwan was a very friendly guide and had the best eyesight to spot every animal. We saw lots of elephants!

The tour guide was very worried and enjoyed to the point where they didn't notice!

Really beautiful park! We had the chance to see a lot of elephants up close! Great

We had a great guide and driver and saw a lot of animals, especially elephants.
