Explore Galle Fort with a local

We work closely with a hand-picked crew of eccentric and knowledgeable locals who love nothing more than taking our clients on entertaining walking tours around Galle fort. Experience the deep history of colonial Sri Lanka by doing a complete circuit around Galle fort with your guide. The fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site, built in 1588 by the Portuguese and later fortified by the Dutch and British, respectively. Today, it has a vibrant and self-contained, multi-ethnic and multi-religious society that showcases an effortless balance of European and Sri Lankan culture. It also has some fabulous shops and eateries and is one of those atmospheric places that you can lose yourself in for days. And do not forget to catch some cricket in the Galle International Cricket Stadium if there is a game on!

Our walking tours in Galle can be tailored to meet your exact requirements. If you’re travelling with kids, then you might like to consider taking on our Galle Fort Treasure Hunt or for something fun and a bit different, why not explore Galle and the wider area in a refurbished Mini Moke?!
