Tour Details

Discovering the west coast of Sri Lanka, Colombo is the largest city on the island. Due to its vital role in the east-west sea trade dating back to the 5th century, remnants of Moorish, Portuguese, Dutch, and British settlements can be seen throughout the city. After being picked up from your hotel or any location in Sri Lanka, you will head to the city of Colombo.

During the day, you will have the opportunity to visit various sites, including the mile-long promenade of Galle Face Green, the exclusive district of Cinnamon Gardens where Independence Square is located, the vibrant and colorful bazaars of Pettah, and the pristine beaches of Mt. Lavinia. Your journey will be enhanced by the many religious sanctuaries, such as the Gangarama Buddhist Temple and the Red Mosque, which showcase the peaceful tolerance of the city's diverse inhabitants. There will also be time to explore Colombo's National Museum and experience the ancient, colonial, and modern influences that shape the city.

Afterwards, we will visit Colombo Lotus Tower, which is a tower standing at 350 meters and is the tallest tower in South Asia. From the top, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the impressive city of Colombo. At the end of the day, you will be returned to your hotel or drop-off location in the evening.
