History Of Colombo, Food and Nature

Sri Lanka, The most beautiful Island in Asia. Colombo is the bustling capital city of Sri Lanka and is a hub for visiting beaches in the south of the island. Its history involves successive rulings by the Portuguese, Dutch and British, and it was a major port on the east-west trade routes during that era. This ancient heritage reflects on the city today in terms of its architecture consisting of colonial buildings as well as high rise sky scrapers and shopping malls.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ranji is a delight as a tour guide. Please be aware that he will pick you up at the side of the ship. ( We were advised that private operators will not have access to the ship... wrong... he was there after we had gone to dock gates.) Great air conditioned car and off we went. He certainly knows his city and many of the key areas as well as the not so secret. Perfect English even if we were not so perfect. We felt that we has seen the very good of Colombo and the crowded areas like the markets etc.
