What you can expect

Join me on a private city discovery created exclusively for you but with a local twist!

This authentic Colombo experience has been created to be enjoyed like a local by using the various modes of local transport in the city! A great part of the city lifestyle is precisely the multiple ways of transportation and the busy vibes of the streets. I'll give you insights on how people spend their day to day lives and how the Sri Lanka lifestyle has shaped itself in time.

Go on a train ride that will take you to Colombo Fort, visit temples and mosques plus pay a visit to a local market. Take a tuk-tuk into the city's Old Parliament and go on a boat ride to see other highlights from the water.

You will enjoy the city to its fullest! Move around like the locals and discover much more about Sri Lanka's culture and history.
