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.

  2. There is no other way to experience Colombo City but by bike

    It was a fun and eco-friendly way to explore and experience all that Colombo has to offer. With its well-maintained bikes, less traffic routes, and cultural immersion opportunities, it is a must-try for anyone visiting the city that I would highly recommend. Our local guide let us meet local people, taste local food and visit mosques, temples and churches to become acquainted with a multicultural community. It was an incredible experience.

  3. A perfect way to experience the blend of architecture and lush greenery

    The city is a perfect blend of modern architecture and lush greenery. I was able to ride along the coastline at Galle Face Green and admire the stunning views of the Indian Ocean. The cool sea breeze and the sound of the waves made the ride even more enjoyable. Many parks and gardens in the city are perfect for a quick stop and a break from cycling. I was able to explore the Viharamahadevi Park and Independence Square while on my bike. These green spaces provide a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Thank you Sri Lanka Day Tours for arranging this fabulous experience.

    We had a great riding experience with Eshan. He took us every corner of the city to see the authentic way of living. We were able to interact with the friendly locals and learn more about their way of life. The city has a vibrant energy and cycling allowed me to immerse myself in it. The local food we tasted was awesome.
