    I met Shiva at 10am having exchanged a few WhatsApp messages the day before. The tour was great - so many tastings of food ( depends how you count 11 - 20) and in places I would never have found for myself (7) . Shiva was friendly and informative and we went a variety of places.
    Highlights were an amazing samosa ( warm and moist and really tasty) at a popular short eats cafe, strange salty, sour and spicy fruits from a street vendor and the freshly made cassava chips at the market. The guy sliced the chips straight into a wok of oil. We finished the tour in a traditional restaurant where I was made to feel welcome by our lady host. A lovely Sri Lankan adventure.

    The Tour was great. Maran is a super nice guy who is not just knowing the good places for good and great street food (definatly worth it), he is also a hell of a tuktuk driver. After one month in Sri Lanka and driving a tuktuk by myself, never had such a great ride in the thickest traffic in Colombo you could imagine. The open rooftop where you can stand up and enjoy the madness from above, is an experience for itself. Thank you and also for the good conversations.

    We had a great evening with Naushad. He speaks very good English and is able to explain sights in Colombo while wandering around to hunt for good street food. His tours are adaptable: If you want to get things from stalls at the road, he will get them prepare their dishes freshly for you and explain what you're eating. If you want to eat the best Kotthu ever, he will bring you a bit outside of town where it is served. He will tell you when he deems something unsafe to eat, so the tour is definitely great for people just arriving in Sri Lanka. Needless to say, we had trouble waking after all the amazing food. We can't recommend doing a street food tour with Naushad warmly enough!

    An excellent gastronomic walking tour of Colombo. You visit areas you wouldn’t necessarily head to on your own, with very personable and informative guides.
    The food is the main feature from the start and ranges from snacks to sweet drinks to meals. Arrive hungry!
    The tours are also eco friendly, with plastic bottles being recycled to make bricks.
    Highly recommended.

    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!
