Pedal your way down Galle’s charming streets and across its bustling junctions, sampling historical buildings and markets as you cruise. Flip on of some seasonal fruits, savor the subtle sweetness of delicate pancakes, and cool off with a icy glass of delicious mangrove apple drink.

Meet up with me at the EuroLanka Travel office, and enjoy a pure ceylon tea with some homemade cookies before you head out. Roll to your first stop and admire the incredible Dutch architecture of the city and its impressive narrow streets. Nearby, enjoy the crunchy cashew nuts from a street vendor to jump-start your appetite for the rest of the afternoon.

We will cycle through the Dutch colonized era of Galle, visiting the Mosque and Temple to the mountain of Monkey King to hear stories about Rama, Seetha, Hanumantha and Ravana from historical Hindu canon.

    The bike tour we took with Yusuf was simply amazing. We ended up finishing a 28km bike ride through the Galle area in Sri Lanka where we had an extremely diverse experience which consisted of: - stop at a local spice trader - stop at the beach where we grabbed a fresh coconut to rehydrate - visiting temples that encompass all religious cultures - grabbed some nice local food for lunch - the Galle Fort - a last stop at a local wood apple stand to grab a fresh juice Not only was the trip overall amazing and enlightening in many aspects, we also had some very great conversations with Yusuf which only added to the overall experience. I would recommend against it if you are not comfortable biking! Please be mindful and understand you are biking in Sri Lanka and set the correct expectations for yourself if looking into booking this trip, after which I can guarantee this is a blast!

    We embarked on an unforgettable journey with Yusuf, our expert guide, who infused our adventure with his love for Sri Lanka. Highlights included an elephant safari, a pottery experience, and navigating through Galle's bustling streets. Yusuf's flexibility catered to our family, including our two 6-year-olds. A standout moment was joining Yusuf's family to cook an evening meal, a delicious dive into local traditions. We also visited an underprivileged school, a humbling interaction that our children cherished. Yusuf was not just a guide, but an ambassador of his country, sharing candid insights and wisdom. For a memorable Sri Lankan experience, we highly recommend this tour. Thanks, Yusuf! ????

    We had a wonderful day cycling Galle with Yusuf. Yusuf is kind and generous. He loves his country and ensured we had a great experience, sharing insights and local spots. The tour we did is for those a bit more adventurous and comfortable city cycling - we had a lot of fun navigating the busy streets. Yusuf is flexible and will adapt to your comfort level so just reach out to him. We recommend touring with him, thank you Yusuf ????

    It is s great experience if you want to know the deep rooted story of Galle. Yusuf have adequate knowledge about his community, place and country. He is an amazing host. It was my bad luck that I got ill suddenly during the trip and couldn't enjoy much.

    A great cycle tour with a good mix of history, culture and some surprises along the way. Yusuf was able to adapt the tour to our ability and requirements which was great. He’s a vey knowledgable and well travelled guide and gives an honest insight to Sri Lanka and the culture. Would definitely use Yusuf at Eurolanka again.
