Amazing fun afternoon
Feb 2019 • Couples
We were on a cruise ship and visiting Sri Lanka for the day, I booked this in advance, having read the reviews. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Visiting so many places. Our driver was such a lovely guy. We met other staff on our way and they were all so friendly. We fell in love with Sri Lanka that afternoon and will definitely return. If you do arrive on a cruise ship, please bear in mind that you need to go to the port gate to pick up the Jeep.

Perfect way to start our holiday in Sri Lanka
Aug 2018 • Family
Having just landed the night before we were all a little light-headed from lack of sleep, but starting our jeep tour at 8am was the perfect antidote. Sisira, our guide, was extremely knowledgable, patient and kind. Our 2 sons, 9 and 12, had an amazing time, each taking turns to play shotgun.

Loved the fresh coconuts bought from a street seller and the delicious Sri Lankan breakfast of Paratha, Egg/String Roti and curry. Mostly, just loved driving around Colombo in the coolest set of wheels going...

Awesome tour in the Rain
Apr 2018 • Friends
My Wife and I resently spent an afternoon on this tour in a 79year old jeep that was in perfect condition. Our Driver and tour guide where both full of interesting information about the origins of the city and the history of the old town. Due to a forecasted thunder storm we where given the option to have the return journey to our cruise ship via a VW Van. We both selected to stay with the Jeep. This was the best decission we made while on the trip. The perfomance of the the Jeep in the torrential rain was fantastic. Our driver found the quickest way back to the docks, which ment the Jeep had to navigate the back streets of Colombo, through over a foot of water in place. I did get wet but it was worth the drenching just for the experience. Thank you to the Colombo by jeep tour team. Nishantha you are one crazy man and we love you for it!

Jeep tour of Colombo City
Nov 2017 • Couples
Novel way to get round the streets of central Colombo, experiencing the smells and atmosphere of the place. The driver was not too reckless and the guide Nishantha gave an inspired and fluent commentary on the interesting aspects of the architecture and customs. His delivery was enlivened by snippets of inside information imparted from enthusiastic local person. A memorable experience to be recommended.
