Çfarë do të bësh

Hear the stories which has passed down through generations of people who have built their lives inside these walls along with the Colonial Heritage of Sri Lanka. The lifestyle, unique culture and tradition come alive in this walk through the Fort's timeless streets. An authentic residents perspective.

In brief the walk shall begin from any convenient land mark location such as the Clock Tower or the Light House. We shall walk along the Fort covering both the Land and Sea Facades, thereafter explore the streets and the architecture within.

During the walk you would be privilege to visit our private family home which is a historical Dutch House preserved by the Galle Heritage Foundation.

You shall further experience how the Ramparts and Bastions were engineered in a 17th Century Fort and how it survived the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004, the consequence and the impact thereafter, which proved itself as a living UNESCO World Heritage Site in Asia.

Uzman is a great host. A very friendly guy with immense passion towards his hometown and its heritage. We had a wonderful experience walking in and around the galle fort learning of its amazing history and of the galle town itself. I would urge anybody visiting Galle to certainly try this experience for a more personalized and a homely touch.

Some of us had visited Galle Fort before and so what we expected from this tour was to actually learn about the culture and history of the Fort. The tour with Uzman exceeded our expectations. Uzman is an original resident of the Galle Fort whose family has been part of this community for many years. Because of this, we were able to hear exclusive and personal stories about the Fort passed down over the years. He was very easy going and understanding towards our needs and so the tour was enjoyable and not tiring even though we walked for a long time. We went along the ramparts and across the streets of Galle Fort and got an experience that we would have otherwise not being able to get. Highly recommend!

Uzman's trip was very nice. You get to know the history of Galle but also about the people who live in there - their joys and struggles. Uzman is very friendly, speaks very good English and is easy to understand. We would definitely recommend!

We got a great tour from Uzman, we really loved his personal view on the city within the walls. The only thing to consider is that if you're not all English speaking and is planning to translate, it'll be hard to find the time to do the translations, Uzman have so much to tell that you will get 2 full hours of listening.

Uzman invited us into his home at the start of the tour. He was very knowledgable about Galle fort. He took care of the group when caught out in a rain shower he organised umbrellas. Due to the rain the tour end beyond the scheduled time but Uzman continued as though he had plenty of time to share his passions about Galle fort. He even invited us back into his home, offered us food and showed us books which referenced his family in Galle fort and a book he was writing himself.
