Colombo by tuk tukBack
Colombo is a vibrant, compact and interesting city, rich in culture, history and heritage. There is so much to see and do! The city traffic, however, can be a little unruly at times and the best way to get around the chaos is by taking a tuk tuk. The three-wheeled taxis, fondly known by locals as ‘tuk-tuks’ for the sound of their sputtering little engines, are notoriously fast, easy to park, and can maneuver through the tiny streets of this compact city with ease, making it a great way to experience Colombo’s disorderly charm.
Colombo by tuk tuk is about offering travelers the exhilarating experience of riding a tuk tuk within a safe environment assisted by trained, English-speaking drivers. It is easily, the most fun way to have your own local friend and guide to show you around with their own stories and inherent knowledge of the city. As part of the standard itinerary, a list of ‘non-touristy’, rather rare and quirky recommendations will give you a current and honest sneak-peek into Colombo life.
