We did the tour in pouring rain and it was still a great experience with my tour guide Rik. This tour covers sights, history and local street food, go for it :)

This a must do, a great way to see Colombo and be introduced to the food. Suj our guide was very friendly and informative. My favourites were the hoppers and the Falooda drink, yumm. Thank you Suj.

We so enjoyed Sujith and found that the Tuk Tuk Adventure was a wonderful way to see all the sites of Colombo. Sujith was very knowledgeable and friendly.

If you want to experience authentic Sri Lankan street food, this tour is highly recommended! We had a private tour. Rik (Rikaz), our guide, was awesome and highly knowledgeable! He took us around the city and shared some of the city's notable history and facts. We got to learn about and taste a range of Sri Lankan food - from hoppers, to sweets, to salty snacks, and chicken barbeque! You're really going to appreciate the long walk because you're going to be eating a LOT! Rik was very thoughtful and was always asking us if we were ok. He also brought paper cups, plates, and napkins for us to use. Overall, one of our favorite tours!

Excellent trip, lasted three hours with a personalised guide who was very knowledgeable and informative and you could ask him loads of questions. The trip gives a good overview of all areas of Colombo, Sri Lanka as well as detailed trips of temples and official places. Very good, would highly recommend it, the company was extremely obliging and even sent someone to collect us at our hotel

I was about to post a review when I read some of the wonderful reviews that concerned Sujith and the tour by Tuk Tuk. I can do no better than to say that everything that was written was accurate - his driver was courteous, patient, hardly used his horn and missed every pothole. Sujith was both informative but also realistic about his country but nevertheless proud. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with them. You can do no better than to book the tour.

We spent a fascinating and very enjoyable and interesting three hours with our guide Sujith sampling not only street food but also the markets and fast food places used by local people. We ate hoppers and samosas, drank tapioca porridge, and finished with tmeal in a fish shack on the sea front - always in places busy with locals. The food was great, our guide very knowledgeable on Sri Lankan history as well as that of buildings and places in central Colombo. Recommend!

We had an amazing private food tour. Ricky took us to several local places and taught us all about different Sri Lankan food. We had already tried a few of the food on our trip but these were clearly better and we got to learn a bit more about the city and the Sri Lankan culture.

The tour was a couple of hours and the walk was pretty easy around downtown Colombo. He pointed out historical sights as we passed them so it was a bit of walking tour too.

Our leader Rikaz (or Ricky) was amazing! So knowledgable and kind, and showed us some great food spots and talked through some history of Colombo too.

We had a variety of snacks and drinks, some which we had never heard of before, and much more than we expected in a food tour. Then there was a lovely evening walk along the harbour to the final dinner spot where we had amazing Kottu outside.

Ricky also practiced responsible tourism, by trying to minimise plastic waste.

Thank you Ricky!

Such a great way to learn all about the different foods unique to Sri Lanka, so that you know what to order for the rest of your trip. We got to sample so many different things, which I would never have tried otherwise. It was a great mix of food, plus sightseeing, history and inside knowledge all in one. Our guide Sujith was great! Tip: don't eat too much beforehand, the food is plentiful!
