Private tour guide Nimnaka

Nimnaka R.

Colombo, Western, Sri Lanka

I'm a Passionate Foodie, Birder & licensed countrywide guide graduated from Colombo & Stockholm universities.

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

Colombo was my last stop of 7 weeks travel. So I was pleased to find Nim & his cooking class as a way to relax for a day and go for a wonderful market tour. Understanding the complexities of cooking has transformed my entire thinking. The Whole Experience from beginning to end was fabulous. Nim is so welcoming and explained everything from the Market to the table. . Thank you Nim for the whole experience and a lovely evening! This is something you should try when you are in Sri Lanka, Highly recommended.!
