We are so glad we did this tour. We went to different temples, and our guide Chamika gave us excellent information about the temples, and we learned a lot about the culture and the religion hindu and buddhism. We also got to see different parts of the city. We thought it was a fantastic tour, and would recommend it to everybody who wants to see Colombo in just one day. Chamika brought water, which was very good, because it was quite hot.

This is a fantastic tour! We basically enjoyed every minute of it with our amazing guide. Daishan is such a knowledgeable person who looks after his customers as if they were very close friends. His English is excellent and his driving skills are brilliant given that driving in Colombo is a real challenge. You'll know everything you need to know about Colombo in this private tour in a relaxed and comfortable manner. Visits to the temples were especially unique. Great experience!

We had a wonderful 1-day private tour covering several of the historical sites in and around Colombo. Our excellent English speaking chauffeur-guide, Chamika from Sanota Walker Tours Ltd arrived promptly at our central Colombo hotel to collect us in his clean and air conditioned Toyota.
While settled in his car we were provided with his typed list of the planned landmarks and sites that we were to visit around Colombo and headed off to the Buddhist Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara temple. During the journey we took in the several sights of the old Dutch Hospital old Parliament building Prime Ministers office World Trade Centre towers etc. and during our travels we found Chamika to be very knowledgeable and informative with his various site descriptions. We also found his driving skills while travelling through the busy streets and roads of Colombo to be excellent and we felt very comfortable and safe with him.
During the site tour Chamika provide both the details of the history of the temples as well as the various Buddhist and Hindu rituals, which were all very interesting and fascinating.
Overall the comprehensive tour of the main city sites and landmarks were excellent and included a stop for luncheon of Sri Lanka fare our choice served at the buffet Raja Bojun restaurant. After our lunch we continued with our city tour and landmarks, including the Gangaramaya Buddhist temple and the largest Hindu temple in Colombo.
Overall a great day out seeing all the sights of Colombo with a great guide and its super value for the money. It should be noted that the tour does include some entrance fees and the luncheon is not include, but its all small fixed rates.
Would highly recommend Sanota Walker Tours Ltd.

This tour was amazing, Chanika, our tour guide, was very friendly and kind. He took me and my husband to different places and temples in Colombo, he was very knowledgable and patient.

We have been picked up in a nice car by our very friendly tour guide. He showed us so many temples and places in Colombo. We enjoyed every minute. He also told us a lot about the city and the religions in Sri Lanka. Thank you very much,

We were off a cruise ship and had just 7 hours in Columbo. I can think of few better ways of using Google the time than going on this tour. We had been in Columbo some 20 years ago. How things have changed.

Viator Colombo was not capable to respect their engagement.

It's not correct.
