A fascinating part of the world. It was exotic and the excursion wonderful. This was only the second chance to shop during this cruise.

We did the old and new tour. £70, we spent almost 1 hour being sold tea instead of seeing nice sights. I’d recommend a pre booked taxi. Poor trip.

Again we organised a private trip, this time through Viator. A private car met us at the port and took us to a local mosque and temple, then onto a tea tasting before driving out of the city to a tea plantation and tea factory. Colombo is a very busy city so the chance to organise a trip to a place many miles away is not to be considered if you want to catch the ship! Read Less

The town is walkable if you are in the old port. The new tourist port is a fair way to get out of the port. We had previously been to the elephant orphanage and the large elephant temple in town. This time we discovered the large market ... Read More

The ship advertised this as Panoramic Colombo. In truth it was just a city tour showing you landmarks, buildings, hotels etc. I could have missed this one and not felt shorted.

We booked a tour via Viator before leaving home. Were picked up at the cruise terminal and taken into town where we got into our Tuktuk and had a tour of the city. The Tuktuk guide was a lovely young chap who went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. Loved this city, it is so busy, vibrant and interesting. Not usually a temple/church person, but these ones were really interesting. We were there exactly 2 weeks prior to the awful bombing attack at Easter, so feel very sorry for the people affected and also those trying to earn a living in this place. Lots of sad sights of disabled people begging and a lot of poverty, but most people had a big smile and were lovely. Read Less

Sites were wonderful but the guide took us on a walking tour when the tour description didnt state that walking for 2 hours was to happen. Very crowded spots and unsafe for tourists.

We booked a private tour with Blue Lanka tours and spent several hours touring the city. Although larger than other stops, Colombo is not as interesting a city. Of course we went to temples(!). Our first stop was at the Red Mosque, a magnificent building where we clearly were not welcome. The Gangararma Temple is fascinating, beautiful, but be forewarned. There are multiple buildings, and if you're not careful you will find yourself touring every building that stores the countless gifts given to the temple, including machine guns and rocket shells. In driving around Colombo you will be limited in what you can see, in that most of the larger, older houses and buildings are behind walls. All in all, I would say that your Colombo stop might be better enjoyed if you go out of the city or have a very targeted location or theme (shopping, food, culture). Read Less
