Tour in brief

Meet Sri Lanka Day Tours representative and your cycling guide at the SLDT Head office in Colombo. After the initial briefing, and familiarisation of the bikes we start the ride through Colombo 8 towards Colombo 7.

A car would get you from point A to point B in relative comfort within the city limits but to truly experience Colombo intimately, cycling is the way to get around it. Sri Lanka Day Tours gives you the opportunity to explore the city's inner-workings with a comprehensive cycling tour. This cycling tour will take you to some of the main attractions within the beautiful metropolis which will make you feel a part of its splendour.

Visit the Dutch Museum, built in the latter part of the 17th century and once home to Count August Carl Van Ranzow. Explore the Neo-Baroque-style Old Parliament building which was built during the British rule and housed the country's Legislative Council until 1983.

Have some pineapple at Galle Face Green, visit a typical Sri Lankan home and receive a blessing at a Hindu Kovil. This comprehensive cycling tour will give you the chance to get up close and personal with the city of Colombo while avoiding traffic and getting a good workout.

The Colombo city cycle tour covers several other historical and cultural sites such as the Railway Museum, Old Law Court, Kathiresan Kovil, Tamiul-ul-Alfar Mosque, Fort Railway Station, Galle Face Green, a beautiful Buddhist temple, Green Path Art Gallery, Colombo Museum, the Planetarium and the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH).

You will experience Colombo better than any travel guide can teach you. Our experienced and knowledgeable cycle guide will facilitate the discoveries of all the famous attractions in the city. Come experience Colombo in its purest form with this complete cycling tour package.
