Attractions in Colombo
For most of the sights you can book tickets, excursions or guided tours online in advance without any problems - partly also as Fast Track offer, i.e. without waiting in line. In this case, you often have to wait a while because of safety precautions, but you are still faster than other tourists. Often, especially in the high season, you save valuable time on site.
Guided tours in Englisch are becoming more and more popular with English-speaking tourists, so it is worth reserving tickets for the sights in good time, as the offer is often limited. This also applies to all tours and tickets included skip-the line with which you avoid queues.
Because the sights & attractions want to better manage the large crowds and flows of visitors in the future, the limitation of the number of tourists will increase at certain times. A timely booking in advance is therefore often worthwhile, as it ensures the desired time.

Helpful tips for activities and experiences in Colombo
The best time? Use the morning and evening
At many places of interest, large crowds often form from morning or midday. If you have the possibility, we recommend that you check whether a visit is also possible in the morning or evening.
Individual offers without further guests wanted?
Private tours, excursions and activities take place without additional guests. This means that the tour guide or organiser can concentrate entirely on the wishes of your group (couples, families, groups, etc.). For private tours, for example, you can often determine the pace and programme yourself. It is also possible to pick you up at the desired location, for example at your hotel. Private offers are among others the favourite products of our customers: In spite of the higher prices compared to public offers, our customers rate the private offers in Colombo with 4.2 from 5,0.
