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

Guide was 30 min late but understandable with traffic. We were expecting a group tour but it turned out to be private. Driving around town in a small car with A/C was worth the cost. We drove past many attractions and stopped at a few. It only took 2 hrs to complete the tour but it’s because we chose not to spend a lot of time at each stop. The heat was too much for us. Definitely worth the cost. We had planned to take a tuktuk around town on our own to places we chose but glad we took the tour instead.

excellent tour takes you to the most important places in the city with a super guide that apart takes some amazing photos super recommended

Because of health problems, we did not walk much. The driver was very pleasant.
