Tuk Tuk Safari will take you to some of the most popular seasonal destinations in and around Colombo. We make these seasonal, as the time of year you are in town, will generally determine what’s the coolest thing to be doing. Our tours generally start at 4pm each day and last for approximately 4 hours.
We have five premium convertible tuk tuks to take your around town in, and we will let you know the central meeting place for your tour, based on where guests that day are staying (if we can’t pick you up).
We have a number of places up our sleeve where we can drop you at the end of the night, if you wish to keep eating or partying. Or we can drop you back at your hotel, or wherever suites. Just advise your friendly chauffeur where you want to be dropped and he will look after you.
Which Safari is for you?
City Safari – 4 hours
The City Safari is suited to those on a budget or whom are visiting Colombo for the first time and want to get an overall city tour experience (with an added edge!). The City Safari will take you to some of the hottest seasonal attractions and sights (some of which are off the beaten track and exclusive to us). We encourage guests to bring their own snacks and refreshments and stock up the onboard cooler. Don’t worry if you don’t remember to do so, as you can just ask your chauffuer to stop by the supermarket.
Food Safari – 4 hours
The next is the Food Safari, which we have dubbed “Colombo’s best food tour!” The Food Safari covers hotspots in Colombo, as well as numerous super-authentic (local favourite) food stops along the way. We guarantee you will experience some of the best local cuisine this beautiful city has to offer. Warning: this tour is not for the faint-hearted, as you will be taken to some very local street food destinations. However, don’t worry if you don’t feel up to it, as we have a few other options up our sleeve and we can accomodate anyone and everyone. We also have a few vegetarian options, so please advise when you book if you are vegeterian. You are encouraged to bring your own refreshments along and stock up the cooler with whatever you wish to drink (alcohol is encouraged).
Gala Safari – 4/5 hours
The last is the Gala Safari – the all inclusive favourite! This is an amazing combination of Colombo’s best seasonal hotspots, all of our amazing local food stops AND lots of drinks are also included (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). This Safari runs a bit longer, depending on how the guests are going, so please be prepared for a massive fun filled evening. This all inclusive experience is excellent value and we guarantee you will find it impossible to beat!
If we have another solo guest on the day, then we will pair you up. It’s a great way to meet people and share the experience.
Regardless of which tour you choose, we guarantee that it will be the best thing you will do in Colombo and the feedback we’ve received to date has been outstanding. Everyone loves our tuk tuks (especially the beautiful people of Colombo city) and our chauffeur/guides are professional, funny and very interactive, so book now and lets cruise!
- The City Safari is US$40 per person;
- The Food Safari is US$50 per person; and
- The all inclusive Gala Safari is a phenomenally low price of US$60 per person.
We are happy to take either US dollars or the current daily equivalent in Sri Lankan Rupees (Rps).
Create Your Own Itinerary
While we know the hottest places and sites in town, we understand that some adventurists have their hearts set on a particular tour. We are really flexible and can tailor an itinerary to suit you, so please discuss your preferences for sights and duration with our friendly staff.

- Camera to capture all of the sights
- MP3 player (android or iOS) to crank your beats all day
- Some extra cash if you want to purchase souvenirs
- Sunscreen (make sure you are protected with the open roof tuk tuks)
