Perfect way to spend a day in Colombo
Feb. 2020 • Solo
It was an awesome tour with lots of different food. Everything was included and you can also suggest food that you would like to try. It was only me who booked the tour for the evening and as a female traveller I felt safe and taken good care of. My guide was really polite and we had some nice conversations since he was really nice and his English was fine. It was a perfect tour to start my travels in Sri Lanka, to get an introduction to the local cuisine by a local and the best way to get to see the major sights of Colombo. Highly recommend!

Wonderful introduction to Sri Lankan cuisine
Feb. 2020
Our excellent food tour was good preparation for the rest of our holiday. We started at 4.00 pm, by which time it was getting cooler and we enjoyed walking around the Cinnamon Gardens area calling in at various eating establishments. The cashew curry and pittu was our favorite. Finally we ended up at Galle Face Park and the lively beach where families were eagerly eating cottu and other delights. Our guide, Neem, was very informative and caring.

Excellent Food Tour in Colombo
Jan. 2020
Excellent pre visit communication from our guide Nim who met us promptly where agreed.
We spent a wonderful 5 hours with Nim, who was funny, friendly, humble and knowledgeable.
We booked this on our 2nd day in Sri Lanka and it gave us a great insight into the place, the people and their culture.
Nim took us on a wonderful walking tour of several proper Sri Lankan restaurants and cafes to sample food and drink of the region. We also visited a vegetable market and ended up on Galle Face Green at the pop up street stalls.
We walked quite a long way but he was also happy to call on tuk tuks if you had enough of walking.
I highly recommend this experience and Nim - book it, you will be very happy that you did!

We booked the morning tour with Nim. Every single food item we tasted was fantastic. Nim has really done a great job of selecting a great variety of foods and places to make sure that his guests are getting only the best. Thank you so much for giving this lovely experience on our first day. I can't recommend this highly enough...!!!

Come hungry and Leave happy
Nov. 2019
It was an excellent decision to join this tour. I actually wished I went on the tour on my first day instead of my last day in Sri Lanka. But i feel now I have almost completed the Food task in Sri Lanka. This was a great insight and our guide, Nim, has a fabulous knowledge about everything. We had a lovely evening chatting and sampling different types of food. I can't say enough about how terrific this tour was. Thank you Nim, you are a fantastic foodie!

Beyond Expectation
Oct. 2019
Indeed, the tour went beyond our expectation. We walk through the city where local history was involved and tasted the best local cuisine with a great explanation of our guide, Nim. He is a real foodie and knows his subject well and up to date. Not only we talk about his country and food but also foods and taste of other counties. Every little question was welcome by him and explained to us with a great care. Thank you very much and you have our highest recommendation.
