All day tuk tuk hire in Colombo

We will be in Colombo in December and I am struggling to find a current approximate price I should pay if I wanted to hire a tuk tuk for a whole day to see the sights of Colombo and do some general shopping? Any recommendations of the best place to find a good driver?

Metered tuk tuks charge approx. LKR 50 for the first km, and approx. LKR 38 for following km.

To hire a tuk tuk for a whole day you will need to bargain with the driver.

Unless you know his office number do NEVER leave behind shoppings or other possessions in the tuktuk. Even local family got robbed sometimes by tuktuk drivers in cases like this...

All the best,

Call one of the companies and arrange for a driver. I have done a 3 hour wesak tour which cost about Rs.1200. The drivers are pretty helpful and go out of their way.
