Have a gander in Galle on a private tour

An amalgamation of Dutch, Portuguese and British history, Galle is a wonderful city found to the southwest of Sri Lanka. Sun, sand and culture, what more could you want? Catering to all travellers, families, couples and larger groups, no one will be disappointed here.

With a plethora of things to do, a wide range of tours are available to embark on. Hotel pick-ups in Colombo and Negomba are available so there’s no need to worry about organising external transport. Whether you choose a half-day or full-day excursion, you’ll be seeing the infamous sights in no time.

Easily Galle’s top landmark is the Fort, which is as picturesque as it is iconic thanks to the rich tales from fisherman that praise its importance. Nowadays, there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops to wander through here, perfect for mid-tour stop offs and last-minute souvenirs. Nearby, expect to marvel upon mosques and churches that contrast to the traditionally colonial buildings that can otherwise be found here.

Other tour options via bicycle and canoe are available along with a private countryside tour. Immerse yourself in lush greenery and tropical flora and fauna as you roam the roads in a three-wheeler. Expect to visit a Buddhist temple before meditating with the locals. Feeling peckish? A toddy tasting tour is next as you educate yourself on the local industries accompanied by Sri Lankan sweets and tea. Tuck in to amazing fare as well as idyllic views with this choice.

Alternatively, a full day stint will have you visit the likes of the Madu River, admire turtle hatching at Yala National Park, Bentota Beach, greet stilted fisherman and head to museums such as the Tsunami Photo Museum. Boredom simply isn’t an option.
