Overview
Explore Colombo like a local—in a tuk-tuk 3-wheeler—on this fun small-group tour. There’s no need to worry about negotiating the fare or planning the route: Your guide does all the work. See sights from Colombo Harbor to the President’s House; shop for snacks and bargains at Pettah’s market stalls; and admire Wolvendaal Church, Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, and the Temple of Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil.
Highlights
  • Nip, dive, and weave through Colombo’s traffic in a tuk-tuk 3-wheeler
  • Explore heritage sites, back alleys, markets, and even Bera Lake
  • Sample Sri Lanka’s favorite king coconut, a super-sweet variety
  • Capped at 12 travelers—in multiple tuk-tuks—for a more personal adventure

We went around Columbo by Tuk Tuk and it was a great way to see the sights in a short space of time. Make sure you agree a price beforehand and specify exactly how much per person and how long your tour will be.

It was really fun tour with the tuk tuk driver Kuma. He know where to go how to go..... very enthusiastic guy, and fun. This is the best way to explore any busy city-Tuk Tuk. We had real fun inside a Tuk Tuk for the first time. Local street markets and people very friendly.

Our tour guide Rizak was wonderful. He was on time and wore an company logo'd t-shirt (which made it easy to follow him in the streets). Part of our tour was in the tuk tuk and part was a walking tour through the markets. Ended with a fantastic lunch at a local restaurant.
