I worked for prominent travel companies for 4 years organizing tours before became a tour guide. I have a true passion for Gastronomy, Wildlife and Culture and have 5 years experience guiding small personalized private tours to large group bus tours.
I 'm also a field visitor, researcher and conservationist. We conduct main conservation projects at the rainforest and least developed areas in Sri Lanka. During in last few years of my carrier, I got the opportunity to conduct few types of research at the rainforest and traditional Sri Lankan cooking, including authentic Sri Lankan dishes, traditional cooking methods and tools.
As a Bird lover, I crafted urban Birding Colombo tour for the first time in Sri Lanka. I had been working in the rainforest few years conducting Nature and wildlife tours. Additionally, I have around 4 years of experience in handling culinary tours as a national guide. After seeing the pathetic fate of travellers who seek an authentic experience, I decided to craft a Hands-on Cooking Class aiming to give guests a unique experience with my knowledge combined with the guiding experience. So, now I am living my dream of promoting authentic Sri Lankan food to the world. We meet at my villa where the cooking class is held.
A Recent Review of this guide
This tour was one of our favourite shore excursions on our cruise. Nim was a fantastic host, starting with a market tour where we were able to taste various fruits and vegetables and learnt of their importance to Sri Lankan cooking and their health properties. After this we took a Tuk Tuk to Nim's lovely home in which he has established a professional kitchen. Would be great for a small group (can take up to 8) Excellent experience for anyone who enjoys food and cooking
