Tours

t 1
I offer the following types of tours:
Standard Tours – US$ 25 per head (90 min tour Inclusive of water/Thambili (coconut water))
This is a quick walk around the Galle Fort which starts at the Buddhist Monastery and ends at the Meeran Mosque, and at each stop you will get a taste of Colonial history of the Fort, the many aspects of modern Lankan culture which has clear Colonial connections and a round up of the 130 acre Citadel.
Extended Tours – US$ 45 per head (150 min tour Inclusive of water/Thambili (coconut water))

The session covers colonial History, its effect on our Sri Lankan people, the comedy that surrounds colonization, detailed insights on the history of the fort and how it has evolved to be the living site it is, a brief brush with craft and trade and all this ends with the perfect sundowner inside the fort.

Night tour at the Dutch Fort – US$ 45 per head 
The night is when the Fort becomes calm and lit up. Walk the cobble stone roads that glitter under the moon light while having conversations about the Colonial era. You’re lucky if you bump into a ghost, listening to black comedy wielded by a storyteller. Torches for light sabers and you’re guaranteed to feel like a Jedi time traveling through the 17th Century. Ask yourself, are you afraid of the Dark?
This walks end with homemade ice cream or a beer inside the Fort.
Walks starts at 7pm

All Interactive tours start at the Sudarmalaya Buddhist Monastery inside the Fort.
The following are add-ons for the standard/extended tour:
  • Kids’ Treasure Hunt – This is a picture clue-based programme where the children take photos with every find. (+ US$ 25 per child) (This is for Kids under the age of 10)
  •  A meal at Wasanthi’s – A trip into the home of a typical middle class Sri Lankan family for a Sri Lankan Lunch/Dinner experience. Meet the man in the house who used to be a New York Cabby, his wife who has learnt the art of traditional southern cooking from her grandma, the son who is a Redbull daredevil Surfer and his sister who is starting up her baking business. Let them teach you to eat a home cooked meal with your fingers.   (+US$ 30 per head)
  • Cooking with Wasanthi – Sri Lankan Rice and Curry like the country, has it’s own heritage. It’s an art that has been passed down from generation to generation. The best way to enjoy a Rice and Curry is when it comes out of a home Kitchen. Let our Traditional Southern maestro in the her Kitchen show you the art of cooking a proper home cooked Sri lankan meal. This will be followed by lunch. (+US$ 60 per head)

All of the above tours can end with a fun mask/elephant painting activity which participants can use as a souvenir of the Tour (+ US$ 20 per head).

Any of the above can be combined and all add-ons need to be pre-booked.

All you need is:
Casual light clothing, a cap or an umbrella if you’re a lady, an inquisitive mind and a smile that will be transformed into a laugh (guaranteed).
