Overview
Forget relying on instinct and guesswork, and discover Colombo’s foods with a guide to show you what’s what. On this walking tour, view sights such as the Khan Clock Tower as you dip into markets, shops, and eateries favored by locals. Sample staples such as "hopper" pancakes and "achcharu" (pickles); and finish with "kothu" (meat or vegetable roti) at Galle Face Green—all goodies that you could easily overlook alone.
Highlights
  • Discover Colombo’s foods and landmarks on a small-group walking tour
  • No guesswork or getting lost: guide introduces you to snacks and sights
  • See sites such as the Red Mosque and taste foods at markets and shops

An excellent gastronomic walking tour of Colombo. You visit areas you wouldn’t necessarily head to on your own, with very personable and informative guides. The food is the main feature from the start and ranges from snacks to sweet drinks to meals. Arrive hungry! The tours are
