This relaxed walking tour is a fantastic alternative to our Colombo City Tour as it gets you out into the city on foot so that you can experience its more hidden corners. The tour is run by experienced guide and keen photographer, Mark Forbes, a Sri Lankan national with Dutch, German and British heritage. The tour explores Colombo’s hidden colonial treasures, such as its Dutch mansions and The Old Dutch Hospital. It passes through the frenetic Pettah Market and the commercial area of ‘Fort’. During the leisurely walk Mark will also explain some of Sri Lanka’s complex history and will also guide you to some fiery street food if you’re feeling peckish! The tour begins at 3.30pm and normally lasts around 3 hours.  Please note this tour is subject to availability at the time of booking.
