Colonial Colombo

Overview

There cannot be a better way to explore the colonial architecture and monuments than in the comfort of a classic vintage car. Ride a pristine vintage car to explore the beautiful tropical countryside of Colombo. Your host, who is an expert historian, will bring your trip alive with stories from the colonial past.

Why you will love it

  • Tour Colombo in a vintage car with an expert historian.
  • Driven by your own chauffeur, admire the city’s impressive colonial architecture.
  • Appreciate the impressive influence of Portuguese, Dutch and British settlers.

What you will experience

Colombo is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. Explore the city in style—in a vintage car—on this private tour. Sit back and soak in the feeling as your chauffeur ferries you around the city to witness its old-world charm, retracing the colonial past and history through guided commentary.

Multiple invasion post 16th century starting with the Portuguese changed the sleepy sea port's destiny. Each of the invaders brought with them their unique architecture, religious places and food habits, which is still visible in the lives of people today. Each of them has left their mark in the form of some majestic buildings and infrastructure. In recent years, many of the city's most striking buildings have been given government-lead restoration and previously closed-off areas have been opened up once more.
