Let's Go

Sightsee Colombo in a unique way with a Colombo by Beep tour. What’s not fascinating about a world war jeep taking you to the best attractions in the city and then to the Aththidiya bird Sanctuary for some fauna.

Don’t miss out on a memorable 3- hour experience as you ride a historic World War II jeep to some of Colombo’s most crucial attractions. Feel like a celebrity as you turn heads and get attention from pedestrians and other locals, something that’s not common even if you ride a Lamborghini.

The cool breeze and the 360 degree view, thanks to the open-top, will keep you relaxed while giving you a good opportunity for photographs. After being picked up from your hotel at the mentioned time, you will be taken to see some of the city’s best attractions that have stood the test of time and proudly display the history, religion and development of the country.

Once that’s done, you will be taken to the outskirts of Colombo for a wildlife experience at Aththidiya Bird Sanctuary. Admire the raw beauty of the area and its inhibitors before observing the traditional fishing methods of the country where nets and toddy palm rods are used.

You can also take a small boat ride and do some bird watching. Tap into your adventurous side and drive the antique vehicle, either in the bird sanctuary or back on the streets. The best part, you get a complimentary film of the entire journey and a few photos to recall the amazing time you spent touring the fascinating sites.  Finally, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
