The guide and driver were very kind to drive us in heavy traffic to St Anthony's Church even though it was not on the itinerary but it should be as this is the most important site in Colombo for Christian westerners so that we could pay our respects after the atrocities by Islamic suicide bombers at Easter. The Christian worshippers are still very noticeably traumatised and our hearts went out to these tragic people. God bless them and may they be allowed to live in peace by these evil Islamic fanatics. Just totally heartbreaking but we were so glad that we got to visit this sacred church now protected by armed soldiers to show our support for them and Christianity. May these innocent souls rest in peace x
My husband and I had a wonderful guided tour of Colombo with Chinthaka. He has a genuine interest in imparting his knowledge of Sri Lanka and Colombo. The day of our tour fell on a public holiday and Chinthaka was innovative in revising our itinerary to ensure we were still able to see all the sights. He was interesting and engaging throughout the tour. Chinthaka was attentive to our needs and happily answered all our questions. We would definitely recommend him. He is an excellent guide.
The tour was good, I liked all the activities and sites that were included. My guide was on time, effective, and did a fine job. The tour was as promised. I save my 5-star ratings for tours where the guide is really enthusiastic, tells great stories, creates connection, entertains, and educates. It's a high bar, but some guides manage it. This tour did what it promised, though - got me out to see the sights of Colombo and gave me an overview.
Interesting tour, although it was done with a regular car instead of the advised Tuk-Tuk.
