Colombo City Walk’s founders Mark and Ruby will pick you up from your hotel where they will transport you to a previous era (by Jeep!) to when the Portuguese, Dutch and finally the British ruled the land. Starting out at city’s oldest church, the Wolvendaal church built in 1749, the walking tour winds its way through the old Dutch Fort streets of the Pettah district, today home to the thriving local market stalls. Down its small alley ways, and behind wooden doors, remain pockets of rich history not found on the usual tourist routes.
