Very nice sightseeing of the city in a comfortable car and with a professional and caring guide (Kumar). For an half day it was a perfect solution and we definitely can recommend this agency. Another note of merit: for a little delay in tour start, we were offered, without asking, a lift to the airport as compensation. We highly appreciated this goodwill gesture.
An amazing trip both in sight seeing and knowlage of the tour guide which was just outstanding plus the ability of the driver to deal with what I would call craziness of the roads.
Best way to see Colombo is to book a private car. Takes you to the most interesting sights as well as others you'd like to see. We were very satifsied with our driver, excellent and clean car
