Colombo to Historical Galle City in 1 Day

Prasanna was not only helpful to bring us to all the spots we wanted to see and eat at, he was full of smiles and a great conversationalist making the entire trip even more pleasant. The highlight of the tour was in galle old town where Prasanna told us the history of the town and we were lucky to come across some national cricket competitions and saw the neighbor come alive with support for the games.

Overall it was a very good experience. Prasanna is knowledgeable enough with the places we visited. Our van is perfect for the three of us.
