Colombo Day Tours and Activities

Capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo is a dynamic city filled with good hotels, restaurants, shopping and the charming legacy of colonial beginnings. In terms of sights there's the Fort, once a colonial stronghold, and Galle Face Green, a seaside expanse where informal cricket games are played. As the capital city, Colombo is a popular base for exploring attractions further afield including the rock fortress of Sigiriya and the cave temples of Dambulla. You'll find these options and more in our range of day tours and activities. Check live availability and book online with ease.
