Colombo Walks is a small family run initiative which offers an enhanced experience to both locals and visitors that truly bring out the vibrant colours and deep history that lies at the heart of Colombo.

Rather than travelling in comfort on a tour bus, bounce around in tuk tuks or other motor powered vehicles that pollute the environment we promote a type of tourism that is environmentally friendly, sustainable and educational for all age groups and fitness levels.

It is our hope that the structures and stories that stand as a legacy to Colombo continue to be remembered and passed on to future generations.

  • A perfect place to enjoy the rest in the evening.
  • I urge you not to do a walking tour with Colombo walks. The guide spent so much time rambling in an almost inaudible fashion about his old job, his family life, and his opinions on Sri Lanka with little to no facts, and when he did say anything factual it tended to be slightly wrong or made up. In the first half an hour we visited a plaque in a car park and a foyer of a Chinese restaurant to look at some old photos of Colombo. It was a real moral dilemma for us but we walked away after this point, with 1 day in Colombo we did not want to waste 3 hours. We then spent the day ticking off things on a map, the main Colombo sights are easy on foot with the help of a couple of tuk tuks. Oh, and he was 15 minutes late to the meeting point at the start. Basically don’t bother with this company. Cheers
