My husband thoroughly enjoyed our walk with Harold. We chose the early walk to miss the heat a little and that was a good decision. Leaving at this hour we felt we really experienced the early morning bustle of the markets. A very insightful tour....More

A great tour with the right mix of walking and interesting information. The lunch was also delicious, somewhere I’d happily go back, if I’d had more time in Colombo.

We visited several places and landmarks around the city, and went inside the Currency Museum. It was a very interesting and informative walk; but, we didn't go inside any place other than the museum.
