Very good tour. Our Driver/Guide Dinesh was very knowledgable and informative, a difficult job when trying to give us as much information as possible but trying to negotiate the Colombo traffic. The tour is a good introduction to the city and gives a taste for areas that could be investigated independently. One downside to tours like this, is that you are taken to shops/outlets which are presumably well known to the tour company but do not necessarily sell very good quality goods and naturally enough are keen to push sales to you. Its a real waste of time and whilst the tour includes shopping time this is not the best way to do it. Other than that, I would recommend the tour, it was good value for money and we were taken to a restaurant for lounge which was very good.

The arrangement for the City Tour by VIATOR / M/s Sonata Walkers was excellent in all respects. The pick-up at the Hotel was on time and all places as per the itenery were covered. The Car was very good and the chauffeur Mr. Subhash Deshand ? was excellent in taking us around in the car as well in explaining as a Tour Guide in very good English.

This Day Tour by VIATOR/Sonata Walkers is real value for money and a very happy experience indeed!

Our guide was great - we learned a lot and saw some sites of the city that we likely wouldn't have on our own. Thank you!

Sanota Walkers with Chirmanga was an enjoyable tour. He was the perfect tour guide. Very knowledgeable and easy to speak with. It was such an amazing trip and much of it was having him as our tour guide.

My husband and I enjoyed our city tour with Chari, our guide. He was quite engaging as he gave us an overview of Colombo and a brief history of Sri Lanka. We absolutely loved the fact that he was very flexible with our lunch arrangements - skipped on the buffet lunch and went to Ministry of Crab instead. The Crabzilla in Ministry of Crab was superb. It was a wonderful day!

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.

Excellent tour of Colombo with a very knowledgeable and attentive Driver/ guide who did all he could to ensure we had the best day. Thoroughly recommend this tour and our guide Chamika - who also runs the tour company Sanota Walkers.

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.

This was our first trip to Colombo, its a very colorful, chaotic and confusing city for most. We found it that way even with our guide, he was trying so hard to give us a tour, but it was clear he needed more experience, A super nice guy, very friendly, good customer service.. but his knowledge of some areas and his very thick accent made it hard to grasp his narration, which was limited. The traffic was over-the-top and our driver seemed to be going in some circles, but because we had no maps it was hard to understand where we were, We spent way too much time in the van which had great AC and Water. Over all I gave it 3 stars. Wished it had been more!

Viator Colombo was not capable to respect their engagement.
I send you to your email box the message i received from Viaor Colombo and my reply. After that, i never receive any answer... i'm waiting.
It's not correct.
