Private Half-Day Colombo City Tour
US$33,00
Overview
Explore Colombo the way you want without needing to research your itinerary or arrange transportation on this private half-day tour. Meet your private vehicle at your hotel, Colombo port, or airport. Decide your sightseeing plan with your guide’s assistance and discover Sri Lanka’s capital. View the Lighthouse Clocktower, Old Parliament, and more. Learn about the city’s history and daily life and choose to stop for shopping and food when you wish.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Colombo hotel, cruise port, or airport, and settle into your private, climate-controlled vehicle. Then, let your guide know what you want to see before heading into the bustling streets. As your tour is private, your itinerary can be tailored around you.

Pass markets and monuments as you hear about Colombo’s ancient and colonial past, and gain insight into its cultural and religious mix. See Independence Memorial Hall and Cinnamon Gardens and take photos of sights such as the Old Parliament, Lighthouse Clocktower, harbor, and more.

Opt to visit the National Museum to chart Sri Lanka’s history and explore the Gangarama Seema Malakaya temple on Beira Lake. Plus, if you wish, shop for souvenirs at malls and handicraft emporiums, and enjoy an optional food break (own expense) to sample local cuisine.

Your tour finishes back at your hotel, the port, or airport.
