Walking Tour of Colombo
This amazing, immersive tour through the back streets of Colombo is lead by Mark Forbes, a Sri Lankan with Dutch, British and German descent. You depart at about 1530 in the afternoon and it takes around three hours. Explore the vibrant Pettah district, famous for its buzzing markets selling spices and textiles.
