The Full Experience

Spend an evening exploring the historic Galle city on tuk tuk with a resident host.

The vibrant city of Galle is fun to be explored on a tuk tuk as it allows visiting a few places where colonial influences have shaped modern-day life. The ride starts from the UNESCO Galle Fort where colonial nations built an impressive network infrastructure to strengthen military and economic activity. This living fort holds many stories of the host who grew up in these cobbled streets.
The second stop gives you exclusive access to the Galle Services Club where many local championships were played during the colonial days. The next stop takes you right outside the fort to the famous Galle cricket stadium, where you get to know how cricket became an integral part of Sri Lankan culture.
After a short ride into the city, the fish market is active with the afternoon catch where fishermen sell a variety of fish in all shapes, colors and smells. The last stop is the vegetable market housed in a building from the Dutch era where you get to know local vegetables that make up the delicious southern cuisine.

Hosted by Southerner

A third generation resident of the historic Galle Fort, your host runs the oldest café inside the Fort, which traces its roots back to the early 1930s. He is ready to walk with you along the cobbled streets of the Fort, and actively participates in protecting the Fort. He carries with him an array of rich stories from his childhood inside the Fort which he cherishes and fondly shares with you.
