Attractions in Galle, Sri Lanka

  • Come, relax and take a walk over the forts of Galle. A relaxing walk under guidance of the sound of the waves and the great view on the Laccadive Sea
  • Galle Fort Lighthouse. Yep, It’s a lighthouse. Do you like lighthouses? Come over here.
  • Enjoy the “jungle of Galle” aka the Sinharaja Forest Reserve. Observe the most amazing birds and other animals that live in this area full of wildlife
  • Rumassala mountain is all about the views. The mountain is not that steep, so it is quite easily accessible for the less-sporty ones among us

Paris Favourite Food tour: the 10 Tastings

Bassel was a fantastic guide! He was interesting, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. We had several tours on our vacation, and I feel like we connected with Bassel in a way we didn't with some other guides. He was a real, full-dimensional person that we got to know. Paris is a big city and French people, while very welcoming in their way, can be a bit intimidating. Getting to know Bassel over the three hour tour really made me feel like we got to experience France like a true Parisian. We only had about two days to explore Paris, including visiting big tourist attractions such as the Louvre, Eiffel tower, and the Catacombs. These bigger attractions understandably make you feel like a tourist, but our food tour with Bassel, was an authentic experience that really made me feel like I connected to the city. He sprinkled in a bit of history as we explored and tasted the various food, which was all amazing by the way. Perfect guide for this tour, I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a local.
