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

Local Flavors of Saigon at Night: Private Food Tour

Son &Thuy were fabulous hosts, very friendly, great company and with very good english. They took us around the city on their motorbikes (great experience) to sample 6 different dishes which we would have been unlikely to find ourselves. We even cooked one! Highly recommend the tour and these 2 students! Ruth & Tom

Best of Marrakech: Highlights and Hidden Gems tour

The 4 hours we spent with Khalil walking through Marrakesh were really amazing! He provided us with fun stories, historical backgrounds and many interesting facts about the sights we stopped at. He even knew an answer to any of our questions and was always in a happy mood! As the Bahia palace was too crowded to enjoy - he suggested to visit another (lesser known but as beautiful!!!) palace which had even more things to explore and this without other visitors 'spoiling the view'.
Without him we would have never been able to navigate through the souk so easily and relaxed. After the tour he even showed us the best local places to have lunch at!
The only thing missing from the website description was the tea at a local home, however, Khalil showed us where to get spices for our cooking back home, as sombody in our group wished for.
I can really recommend Khalil as a guide! We had an amzing and fun time with him! Thanks again! :)
