Colombo to Historical Galle City in 1 Day

Had a good trip to Galle with Prasanna. He was easy to deal with and accommodated my requests. I wanted to have a relaxing trip, with enough time to take pictures to Galle and that's what I got. Turned out he was also the driver of another friend who went to Galle on a day trip and she wad positive feedback about him. I didn't know until I met Prasanna during the day of the trip. Will likely contact Prasanna again for future trips.

Krish and Sanka honestly two of the best guides we have every had. We can’t say enough about you but you made our trip unforgettable and we had a fantastic tour because of what you showed us. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see your beautiful country to tour with you. Just loved the way you 2 bent over backwards to make sure we received the best possible time at the locations we visited and experience as much of the local food as possible. Loved it and will return

City Tour with a Licensed Tour Guide

We had a nice tour with Prasanna, who met us outside of where our ship disembarked. After visiting a few temples, which he was well informed about, we asked him to take us to a non touristy part of town, to show us how the locals live and eat. Most intereresting and fun to mingle with. Highly recommend.
